    2019 Recruiting Thread

    Well, I hate to be "that guy", but the 1993 team included Stan White, Patrick Nix, and Dameyune Craig...

    2019 4* QB Bo Nix Commits to AU!!!

    You know, a part of me screams out that we just signed a stud QB in Gatewood and already have an overachiever in Willis, so the talk of Bo coming in and starting as a true freshman just seems silly. However, with all the raving about his football IQ and arm accuracy, I can't help but to wonder. I still lean toward Joey or Malik starting in 2019, with Nix redshirting, but I do think it will be very interesting to see the competition at QB in 2020. Of course, what I'd really love to see is Gatewood come in and set the world on fire after Stidham moves on, then go pro after 2020 and have Bo waiting in the wings as the heir apparent, but it's exceedingly nice to have all this talent at the most pivotal position.
  3. I'd rather trust the judgement of guys whose lives are predicated upon them being right with their evaluations than a dot com ratings evaluation done by people whose lives are predicated upon stirring interest among subscribers.
  4. My thoughts exactly.

    2019 5* OT Wanya Morris (Vols 5/1/18)

    FTR, Nall didn't recruit Grubbs. He was recruited as a defensive lineman, and played TE and LB in high school. I remember very well the cleat marks he left on my high school team (we graduated the same year). He was a freak of an athlete, too, so it's not like there wasn't a great deal of potential already there. I can't say as I agree with the downing of Grimes, either. Give him a little time to get himself connected again, and I suspect we'll be fine.
  6. It is. The old adage is that in high school, at most high schools anyway, the best athlete on the team plays quarterback because that's who you want touching the ball the most. Now, obviously, at powerhouse programs, that's not necessarily the case, but there are a ton of wide receivers and safeties who played quarterback in high school because them having the ball in their hands gave the team the best chance to win. The same is true on multiple levels in college.

    Did he not figure that out when OP committed?
  8. I'm not worried. Reading between the lines, I think he got along well with Kodi, but was really taken by Steele and the pitch he gave, which I have a feeling was about playing at the next level as much as it was what he can accomplish at Auburn. I'd love it to be one of those situations where he comes in and lights it up at safety, while Kodi throws barbs about what he could be doing at wide receiver in the locker room (all in jest, of course). Be really great if Kodi became the big brother coach that every player on the team loves to be around, because that would just add to the depth of the recruiting corps.

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    In any case, however, we've drifted from talking about our new TE commit, the UGA QB's little brother. Probably ought to save this chat for IF Jake decides to leave UGA and get back to celebrating Tyler's commitment.

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    And you don't think him being the superior QB now has anything to do with the amount of experience and development he has compared to J Fromm? I get that he was rusty and learning a new system, but the learning curve isn't nearly as steep for a kid who has played major D-I ball and been working out at the college level for two years already when compared to a true freshman.

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    That doesn't negate the physical/psychological maturity or the experience against D-I competition. Don't undersell Stidham for the sake of making a point in an argument.

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    The big difference is that Wilson was a grad transfer, Fromm wouldn't be. If he decided to leave UGA for a JUCO (like if Fields leapfrogs him on the depth chart), then I'd be more than willing to reconsider when he's eligible to be recruited again, but he probably isn't going to transfer before the season, which would put him at Auburn no earlier than 2020, a time when Willis, Gatewood, or Nix would have already had a year on the field (more than likely, anyway, presuming Stidham follows predictions and goes pro after 2018).

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    To be fair, though, our first year QB was a third year sophomore who had experience playing in the Power 5. Theirs was fresh out of high school...not exactly an apples to apples comparison.

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    No, I wouldn't. I like the chemistry we've got going at QB right now, and between Willis, Gatewood, and Nix, J Fromm would be hard pressed to crack the lineup by the time he got to the Plains anyway.

    2019 3* TE Tyler Fromm commits!

    This makes sense to me, based upon the play calling and recruiting during Malzahn's tenure. I love Jalen Harris, but it seems obvious the coaches don't trust him catching the ball (much to his family's chagrin). Still, they've been going after TEs on the recruiting trail, and signed Shenker (sp?) last year, so maybe Chip and Gus have bigger plans for the position going forward? I sure hope so. Love Fromm's measurements, and one would have to presume he has some athletic ability given the fact that his brother has done so well at UGA. Would be great to have a big possession type guy for third downs and inside the 10.
