2 is the number that's been thrown around and I've heard.

Wouldn't rule out it growing to 3 though. All depends on attrition & etc.

Rosendo Louis
David Reese
Cameron Jonas
Jamien Sherwood

The local targets with legitimate offers at this point. Reese, Jonas & Sherwood are S to LB converts. Although Reese and Jonas have been practically playing Lb already.

Another which has been discussed a lot already is Yasir Abdullah from Carol City. No offer yet but obviously one to monitor.

That's for local/in-state at this point. I'm sure staff has tabs on guys nationally as well.

Staff hasn't shown much interest in Georges, Beaver & Hicks and rightfully for certain reasons. Explained about Georges in another thread. Beaver is small in terms of size for a Lb 5'10"ish and very light. Hicks is a bit of a tweener at this point, not big enough for DE and not sure of him as a full time LB. Hicks is a legacy(Blades family) as well and just earned his invite to under Armour game over the weekend.

Was wondering if staff had any interest in Eriq Gilyard from Trinity as a MLB . Had reached out to him and was told not much contact at this point.

This post was so good, that [MENTION=8971]Geo305[/MENTION] made it twice. This allowed me to upvote it twice.

Thanks for the info. Isn't Rosendo Louis another local target with a legit offer? Seems to the one LB target that fits the mold of a Mike backer

Might have worded it wrong afterwards but I mentioned him in the post. He's more of a traditional LB. Big frame too.

Don't you normally want your Beavers small?

Gotcha, yea I may have misread, as well. I like Rosendo Louis in the MIKE slot like Shaq.

I haven't heard much about Cameron Jonas. Seems like a Jermaine Grace type. WHat are your thoughts on him? Does he have a frame to add needed weight?

I like Cameron a lot. He practically plays LB already for Dwyer, comes up in the box a lot. I think he has the speed & aggression Diaz would want his OLB to have. Very athletic as he plays WR similar to how Amari Carter did last year. Have met him in person, he's a little light right now but he is still growing. Our presence is very much felt in Palm Beach. If there was a year to break the curse with Dwyer and Miami. This would be it.

I honestly don't feel we could go wrong if we got 2 of the 3 between Reese, Jonas & Sherwood as OLBs. Splitting hairs to me honestly.
