Fabian McCray tweet. Interesting he used the "hand holding pen" emoji at the end. Thought it might be an indication on committing soon. Went through some effort to make that video though

Actually love them pursuing Randolph and Moses as more project-like DE's. Bring them in, redshirt them, build the technique, get them a few reps in 2020. Unleash them in 2021 after Roundtree, Gay, etc. leave.

That's how big boy programs roll. Staff stocks the cupboard, kids have a couple years as understudies, while they become monsters, hopefully.

Not sure how much spots we have for project DEs. Looks like they are going for the higher ranked players now. Like the players you mentioned, once again it is a numbers game of how many spots to give at that position.

I agree, but Lovie's (and really a lot of experts) is to build from the line back, on both sides of the ball. We for sure need to add some LBs! But, when your Dline is dominating the football game, your LBs and DBs become twice as good. So I say 'stack em!'

Not sure why Austin is actually leaning in for this picture. Coach could be standing in the corner and Dude would still have his arm around him...

Clearly, Moses' gravitational pull.

McCray is tricky one. He seems all but committed, i wonder what the hold up is?

Who else is on campus this weekend besides Randolph? The mayor was on wdws Friday and said he thinks we have a great shot at both players, just not sure when they are going to be ready to commit. I didn't take it as EJ being the second player. Would not think he would comment on him.

I think Randolph was a one day visit, in concert with a school function.

Yeah I know the E.J. definitely came on a visit yesterday with Randolph and didnít hear about any other football players here so more than likely it was him
