Scrounging around for potential help at DE, I wonder if Tyler White played DE in high school? He would seem to have the size and athleticism for that position.

Do you really think he is going to contribute on offense as a freshman behind Davis, LaCosse and Evan Wilson?

If there one of the positions where we had a JUCO committed that I would "prefer" to lose one it would be DE.

Agree. I just don't see it as big of a need as depth at safety (special teams) and quality olinemen.

Taylor is a great pick up for us.

Murdock, Taylor, Hermosillisio, Barr are one solid group of WR coming in.

Milliens, Langford, Harris, Hardee, Church, Fritz, Whitlow, Knight, Murdock, Taylor, Hermosillio, and add Hull is he moves to WR

that makes us at 11 maybe 12 with Hull at WR

seems like a lot to me. makes me believe that guys like Fritz, Whitlow, Knight might not be around come next year

I don't think Whitlow, Knight, or Fritz see the field regardless of if they are with the team or not. And not to be that guy... But Langford is the basketball player, Lankford is the football player

"I had a great official visit to Illinois this weekend," Bailey said. "I think God that I've been able to find a school where I feel so comfortable and so at home in Illinois. I've remained solid in my decision to play for Illinois ever since I gave them my verbal commitment and after this weekend i feel even better about my decision."

Bailey seems like a really really good lkid. God do I hope he is the QB we have been waiting for since KK left.

Notice who they beat in the first game this year. I suspect there will be some trash talk this Fall
