Looks like a good class when all is said and done. Maybe a surprize or two. Let's hope so!

Welcome Duwane and Tyler!

I have to imagine Tyler is being groomed as a future OT with that frame his ability to move.

By my count, we were supposed get 13 guys plus if you include Merrick Jackson, who some have said that he might have grade issues. It would be 14, if he signs. So, I am guessing 1 or 2 surprises.

Just by doing a quick count on Rivals I see 15 unsigned (as of yesterday) with the 10 already enrolled. Anyone got any ideas who that 16th may be?

Edit: Forgot Merrick, so possibly 1 or 2 as uofi09 said.

What type of player is DJ Smoot? I assume DE or is he a LEO type of defender? Thank you.
