Here is my ?. We have recruited several good OL in the last couple of years. I think of Joey Okla as one. Haven’t had a chance on the field. There are others. If we try to secure a transfer what will our redshirt think or will they get a sniff on the field. I can see if we get a former highly rated transfer to play.
Is your premise that Miller doesn't know his personnel?
Dollars to donuts, the reason that young OL haven't seen the field is that they're behind guys. Wisecarver is a good example. Most heralded OL in his class. Nobody cares at the next level. Kid couldn't cut it.
It's a tough business. Coaching staff is ALWAYS looking to upgrade. If you're chaff or marginal, your ride is more valuable freed up.
Late reply to this, seen Sisson playing for the 3A Mount Carmel vs Roxana on YouTuber (RiverBender.com's channel). That Mt Carmel offense was Sisson, got some Vince Young in Rose Bowls vibes for him .

Not sure what your definition of late bloomer in-state prospect is — jumped in ratings late in his senior year, relatively low ranking/rating — nor if by this year you mean 2023 recruit playing this year or a 2024 recruit, but Mac Resetich might qualify. Ended up a nationally, unranked 3* who was ranked mid-thirty in state, and getting some play this year. Had that pick against IU and 3 solos versus Iowa.Did we have a late bloomer in-state prospect this year? Feels like we didn’t?
