Who are your most coveted?

Submitted by chewieblue on July 8th, 2011 at 7:30 AM

With all the buzz about recruiting lately, I wanted to get a feel for who you all think are the three most important pick-ups for the final pieces of the class of 2012?

Personally, I think the Ohio group is huge.  My three would be:

3. Kyle Kalis  (OL)

2. Jarrod Wilson  (FS)

1. Bri'onte Dunn  (RB)

So who are your most coveted of those who remain undecided?

And it all starts up front stuffing the run and getting pressure..So I would love 2 STUD DT's and a ball hawking safety

I'll go by position of what I think is most necessary

1. DT - Pipkins or Shittu

2. WR - Burbridge, Stanford, or Payton (or 2 of them)

3. OL - 2 of Garnett, Banner, Kalis, and Diamond

and the recruit that I want the most is: Devin Fuller because he's a beast

  • Jarrod Wilson -- desperately need a ball-hawking FS
  • Ondre Pipkins -- desperately need an impact DT
  • Aaron Burbridge -- desperately need a field-stretching WR (qualify plz k thnx)

Out of the remaining guys we are in on I would put any 3 of them on this list. I also have warmed up to the fact that a RB not in this class would be a good thing. So.....

1.Jarrod Wilson

2.Pipkins or Shittu

3.Kyle Kalis

4.Washington/Stanford or Burbridge or Peyton



1 and 2 were the toughest.  If Wilson can start this season we'd be in great shape.  But DT's usually need at least a redshirt year and the cupboards are bare.  I've opted for instant gratification.

I have a slight Rivals bias here, but:

1)  Pipkins

2)  Kalis

(I could see someone like Garnett or Banner in your top two, but those are more reaches than the ones I mentioned above - anyone else doesn't make sense, IMO)

3)  Shittu

Shore up the lines and everything else will fall into place.  I am not as sold on Dunn as others.  Kiel ain't coming, either.  My fourth and fifth picks would be a top flight WR and Jarrod Wilson.

I just want to see the DT, S, and SDE positions filled with big time recruits. The following prospects will fit the bill:

DT - Aziz Shittu or Ondre Pipkins or Danny O'Brien
S - Jarrod Wilson or Stefon Diggs
SDE - Adolphus Washington or Chris Wormley or Noah Spence

If the coaches can talk more than one of those players to commit, I'd happily take them. After that, I'm hopeful for some of the following players (in order):
Keith Marshall
Joshua Garnett
Andrus Peat
Jordan Simmons
Kyle Kalis
Jordan Diamond
Zach Banner
Jordan Payton
Armani Reeves
Brionte Dunn
Aaron Burbridge
Ron Thompson
Dwayne Stanford
E.J. Fatu

Shittu and Banner would be fantastic, but I think they're much bigger longshots because they're west coasters.

from the beginning...




After that (looking at my Wolverine Preview mag), I feel we really need a WR and FB in this class.  Hoping for Payton at WR, and no moar TE's please.
