Real quick...I think that's a helluva job overall on the recruiting trail...not just considering our circumstances, but overall. That is a class that will rank in the Top 10 nationally, easily.

Place holder 3?


We rock.
Going to add more to this over the next three days. It'll be our little makeshift recruiting database for this year, until D$, Andrew, and Lu come up with something integrated into the site for the 2013 class.

Maybe they can tack this?

I'd like to keep everyone we have, especially Northrup, add a TE, DT and interior OL and call it a day

I'm thinking Bush plays safety when he gets here by looking at that class breakdown and knowing what we brought in last year and what'll be leaving after this season.

Good stuff Larry.

The glaring hole is TE. I definitely expect it to he addressed before NSD but what kind of kid fits in? A late switch, or a hopeful evaluation?

I really like Walford but we need more bodies.

Lots of people much smarter than me dont think Bush can play safety FWIW. Seems more of a shot to play corner. Hell of an athlete though either way, I'm just pumped he is going to be a Cane.

What positions do we address to fill out this class?

JHall is right. TE is glaring. What else do we look at?

My guess is TE, safety, DT and CB.

Yeah safety is a big one. Honestly I dont know if Jenkins is even a for sure safety prospect. Its like how everyone was quick to put AJL on defense but didnt bother to watch how explosive he was with the ball. Jenkins is in the same mold. He is a playmaker on offense from what I have seen.

For a 6-6 team facing probation, I think its safe to say that coach Golden has outkicked his coverage with this recruiting class.
