Visitor Update (Defense!)

Submitted by Zvornik Bosna on October 15th, 2010 at 6:52 PM

I posted this in Tom VH's diary post on visitors for this weekend but since it is buried in the diary section I thought I would post it here as well to quiet down some of you who are asking for more defensive recruits. Scout is reporting that Ohio DE/TE Austin Traylor will also be in attendance this weekend for an official visit. He is a three star #77 DE in the country according to scout (http://michigan.scout.com/a.z?s=162&p=8&c=1&nid=4737899) and for rivals he is a four star (#214 in the country), 9th ranked weak side DE, and top 10 in Ohio (http://rivals.yahoo.com/stanford/football/recruiting/player-Austin-Traylor-106929)

Yeah thanks a lot ZB.  I hope you don't get too down if it doesn't help calm the members calls for recruiting defense.

This is a persistent bunch.

the importance of the TE position in what we are doing. Webb and Koger don't catch a lot of balls, but they block the hell out of people. Webb is a senior, Koger is a senior to be. After next year, a senior Brandon Moore in 2012 is the only other TE we have left. I'd say we have to take one this year.

Austin Traylor is a great athlete, he would be a solid pick-up for this class.  He's like a black Brennen Beyer, they are pretty similar players - thin, yet athletic DE's in the Craig Roh mold who could also play TE if we needed them to.

Either way, I've been pushing for Traylor for a while, he's a recruit I really like.  Getting a commit from him would be pretty big.
