Nice pick up for us. I'm guessing he'll be sitting out a year which is fine since we'll need WRs to replace Sidney, Josh I. and Smalling after they leave.

Unless the NCAA makes some changes, you're right

Really nice. Great size and quickness. Originally ranked #154 overall in the 2018 class according to 247.

It may not be pretty, but by supplementing the smaller class size with 4 star transfers trapped down the depth chart I am fine with that. If we can somehow find the Corbins, Kramers, Milan, and Hansen’s every class then fill out position of needs with transfers from big schools like this then that is OK. You’re never going to compete for a BIG Championship like that, but if Lovie is able to real in 5-6 of these guys to takeover for all the seniors leaving next season then we should be able to make a bowl year in and year out (albeit not a good one).

Wow, I just read about the offers he had coming out of high school. He chose Miami over Alabama, Clemson and USC.

Impressed with the outreach from the Miami fans on the twitters. I wish all fanbases were as supportive of outgoing transfers...yes, ours included.

If we were consistently getting ten 4* recruits a season I wouldn't mind seeing one go every once in awhile. People need to understand that these kids are just doing what they think is best for them though.

I heard a lineman from Brimfield signed last night, can that be confirmed?
 
       
He's going to be a PWO. He hasn't played football in a couple of years.


Coached against this kid in basketball the past two seasons. He owned us the first time and then we got him in foul trouble the second time ;)

Really athletic for his size, and great footwork. Surprised he didn't play football the past two seasons but then again their team only won maybe 2 or 3 games this past season so I can see why he wouldn't want to risk an injury.

This is where we need to start getting lineman by walking and build our linemen like Wisconsin does this could be a good pickup for us!

Top Priority and highest ranked target we could have reasonably gotten, Travion Ford, heading to Mizzou.

But we got a PWO commit from a DII school today, don't be a naysayer!
