This class needs WR's in numbers and OL in numbers. But, it looks to be another class, low in numbers. We also need a couple of safeties and LB'ers. Anybody else at other positions, need to be difference makers.
 
you feel me, dog?

A little early to be making that call. Signing day is in December. Early signing day.

Obviously, it's frustrating when a kid we want decommits, but early commits decommit more frequently. They tend to make more emotional decisions. Once the buzz wears off, and the realization that you've short-circuited the recruiting process, not to mention one's inner circle,...

That's why I really like Lovie's don't-push-for-a-commitment-too-soon approach.

From this - 13 seniors to replace in 2020, + still a few open that we may not fill or fill w/5th yr seniors + any transfers out...I think the idea is generally right, but we seem to be in good shape with a few very good WR, so I don't think we have to reach as much at WR. OL worries me more because of the time lag to get OL up to size/speed to be ready, seems like a little more depth at LB is in order as well

At this point, Lovie has instilled his culture, I expect to see more transfer replacements
 
Maybe but the interest is still mutual. Let's see after he takes his visits.
I would hope, he is EXACTLY what we need in OL recruiting right now. Jeremy Werner indicated he believed he would be a 4 star before it was all said and done. I just do see him recommitting. Hope I am wrong

I just had my sarcasm meter re-calibrated this morning. I bet my guy can fix meters for detecting facetious comments as well. PM me and I'll give you his number. Super cheap and fast turnaround.
I called him last week and setup an appointment. But I have been receiving calls from other power 5 meter repair establishments and I have decided to decommit from my prior commitment. I am still open to all options however. Please respect my decision
