Why are we not giving after any quality LBs this class?

This is the 2nd year in a row we have not locked down any highly rated LBs. What is going on? It's like we're choosing not go after quality LB talent.

Such as?

We went after Louis and Gainer, both chose FSU. Seems like we have a good shot of flipping Joyner though.

Which highly rated LBs should we be going after?

We signed 3 good LB's for 2017 in De'Andre Wilder, Waynmon Steed & Bradley Jennings Jr.

Steed & Wilder were 2 of the better LB's in Dade & they're both guys who will play over the next couple of years.

BJ Jennings is a thumper as well, has played limited snaps in late vs BC/Tol but came right in & made some nice tackles. Has also played well on ST's. Can develop into a nice rotational LB in the future.

Wilder is pure speed, doesn't really have a full grasp of the system yet, but by next year will be a guy that grows a lot from a full Spring camp getting more reps.

Steed imo will be a future starter once he gets healthy & current trio heads to the NFL. I think he's the most naturally instinctual among the 2017 LB's. He's the forgotten kid because he hasn't played any, but I think he'll be a good one, but again that's just my opinion.

As for the 2018 class, I would simply say just be patient & realize Crootin season hasn't even started yet. We'll get who we need when it's time. If by January we don't have any idea who we're after for LB's then everyone will be justified in panicking.

The fact that Shaq, Pinck & Zach all played well as TF's is pretty rare. It takes time to develop great players & every single player doesn't just hit the ground running from the jump.

Doesn't mean because they're not All-Americans right away that they won't play & contribute later on down the line.

Jennings and Wilder are getting some burn on special teams. They will get playing time when our offense explodes on someone.

i was worried about our LB recruiting before this season, but now i'm excited about the group we brought in. wilder has a high ceiling, and jennings looks like he's in way better shape weight wise than when he came in. and steed looks the part too. i think rousseau is a great & unique prospect, and we'll add one more guy.

not too many stars there in the recruiting sense but those are 4 interesting prospects plus whoever they add... and given what they've already gotten out of the pink-shaq-mccloud combo, i feel okay.

That's who this post was referring to the highly rated LBs.

OP, you're getting **** because only someone who is lazy, and hasn't been paying attention would ask the question you asked.

Take a look at the roster, the depth chart, re-read Peter's updates, look at how many LBs were offered this cycle, etc., etc.

Because you guys don’t know how to read or you’re a troll. There’s literally a thread started today about us turning up the heat of Nik Bonitto...a 2018 LB...and it’s been discussed numerous of times we’re only taking one LB and it’s a poor LB year in SFL. Then just to add icing on your **** post, you complain about the 2017 guys not being highly rated...you realize our three starting LB’s right now weren’t highly rated guys right? They’re weren’t top 100 players in the country...do you even realize we’ve yet to see what the 2017 class can do? Do you realize only 2 were early enrollees with one of them is coming off a knee injury and the other is the least talented of the three? You would’ve figured all of this out if you took time to read instead of adding another thread or you could’ve posted your question about 2018 in the Nik Bonitto thread...

I don't follow every post on here.. I just log on here every now and again. I don't know why you think every member on here follows every update. I posted this almost 3 days ago BTW not Today.

Instead of being a dick you could have just answered the question and explain why... But I guess talking **** over the internet is easier for you. Idk what's up with this blog but there so much **** talking on here on like every posts. I see this **** every time I get on here if someone makes a posts they don't like then a ton of members will sit there and call him a dumbass or about this topic being brought up earlier.

Quarterman and McCloud were 4 stars. Not top 100, but still, there's a difference. Quarterman was the 2nd highest rated recruit in our 2016 class, rated higher than Richards, and was the 6th best ILB in the country that year.


do you even realize we’ve yet to see what the 2017 class can do? Do you realize only 2 were early enrollees with one of them is coming off a knee injury and the other is the least talented of the three?
That has nothing to do with this thread. Sure, one of them could break out, but a 3 star is less likely to break out than a 4 star..

our linebacker recruiting makes me think Smith and Carter will be moved to backer.

Who cares what their rating is?

Because this is likely your 12th account here after several bannings, and you're trying to create fires like a typical feeble troll.

Zbroad. Relax. The guy only has twenty post and you're throwing him under the bus. He looks at the commit list and sees no LB's and ask his question. Welcome to the board Mattm. The fact is this is not a good LB year. We may only get one but if he lips he's a good one.

1) Don't throw shade by calling people names when your post history sucks

2) This is his 2nd thread about absolute bullshit, so yea I’m throwing him under the bus
