I hope Thomas Holley will be able to come back from injury or we need to sign at least two DTs this cycle. I'm also thinking CeCe will eventually move inside.

Still think we have a need here. Are we likely to get a couple?

Yup, I think we need one more 300+ pounder for the inside. We've had some good guys, but we need those 2 or 3 fire plugs that aren't easily moved and can absorb a running back while taking on a 300 pound OL. Hopefully we can continue and close out on even higher recruits! Welcome Shavar!! Better keep eatin those Wheaties!!

Not a single DT successfully recruited. Not one. And it's not like ours don't go on to have success at the next level!!

December recruiting notes had Shavar as dropping a hundred positions and labeled as lazy. He gained a lot of weight but wasn't putting it to use on the field. He had been rated as far up as #18 I think (5 star), but lost his drive. Given the motor Coach Mac expects, I don't think he would've lasted......even IF he had qualified academically.

We're hurtin at this position.....these guys are gonna be worn out!! I hope the scout team has a couple of prospects that can excel!

This is a position that we are good to go at the present time, so we should have picked up a couple of  lower rated guys. They could have come in and redshirted. We have Brantley and Ivie leaving after this year so we will need to pick up a couple next year.

 

Maybe there's a JUCO or graduate transfer we can pickup before the season starts.
