    2019 Recruiting Thread

    Kid is a 4* and very good athlete I hear. I doubt if we are at top of his list. Maybe that will change after OV. If he is willing to play anywhere to help the team he's my kind of football player. Hope he becomes an Auburn man.
  2. I think we have enough dual threats (4 to be exact) none of which have shown that they are a top notch passing threat as of yet. I doubt if Kendall or any of the other GTs will sign with Auburn. I just don't think CGM will promise them the starting job. They'll have to earn it at Auburn but some programs may be desperate enough to assure the prospect that the job is theirs to lose. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

    One missing piece on defense

    TD is too undisciplined right now for LB. He got away with that in HS with big plays because he was so much more athletic than competition. Had great highlight reels. Moultry needs to adjust to SEC and I think he will. Big improvement from freshman season but still has a ways to go IMO.

    2019 2* LB/HB Kameron Brown

    You are right on Valley. Glad someone called him out. WDE has inside knowledge for sure and I respect that, but I don't agree with some of his personal opinions. This one tops the list.

    Feeling better about next year

    With Sr leadership from DB I expect our defense to be better next year (if we don't have key injuries). DBs will be far more talented and experienced which showed toward the end of season. Achilles heel is LBs. I was not as high on our Sr LBs as most of you. Next years group may be more talented but almost no experience to build on. Hope Mikey waves his magic wand.

    Which Players are Leaving?

    I threw this out after midnight New Years Eve. No one even acknowledged this thread except maybe Slayton. His decision certainly doesn't surprise me. If Gus returns to read option which many on this forum want to see, there would probably be fewer opportunities for DS especially with Seth Williams, Schwartz, and Pickens. Slayton's hands are not going to suddenly get better with one more year. Best of luck Darius. DL is my biggest worry for players going pro early. Really hope DB and MD stay another year.

    Which Players are Leaving?

    What about Slayton? Is there any talk of him testing waters after the game he had last Friday?

    Next Year’s OL

    Consistency is the key word. May not be the most talented but Driscoll is a smart guy being able to pick up offense so quickly with relatively few mistakes without messing up the cohesiveness of the OL. I expect him to take on more leadership responsibilities next year. Hope Gus can pick up another SEC ready grad transfer OL with two years of eligibility. May be a little too much to ask for again.

    2019 4* RB Mark-Antony Richards

    I think many of us thought KJ was probably a little overrated coming out of HS. He played at a fairly small private school with a lot of Di talent around him. I would never have thought he would leave AU after three years and almost immediately become one of the best running backs in NFL. Kerryon has amazing reflexes and instincts along with some uncanny moves but not elite speed. We sure missed him this year. Would have had a couple more wins with KJ for sure.

    Clemson Grad Transfer QB Kelly Bryant (Mizzou)

    Wasn't KB supposed to announce this morning? Since his announcement has been postponed until this evening @ 6:00, could Bryant be rethinking his decision today in light of Chip's resignation and Cole Kelly's transfer? Phone lines could be warm?

    Texas A&M postgame thread

    Plenty of Malzahn haters bashing Stidham but no other player that I can recall. I'm not sure any defensive players have been singled out for significant criticism since Holland

    Grading win over Ole Miss

    Good job. I might have given DBs a C+. But the problems were understandable considering starters being out. Definite improvement though from previous week. WDE!!
  13. I've also been disappointed with Moultry's play this year after the rave reviews last year. Aggressiveness and decision making don't seem to be there so far. You may have hit the nail on the head with the root cause Corch. Hopefully that light will come on soon. We really need him.

    We've had some pretty ugly kicks this year .Seems the kid has just lost his confidence. Truth be told most of us probably have too, but not Gus. Unless it's a PAT like kick I think odds might be better at making the 4th down yardage than kicking FG right now. Gus is pretty quick to make a change with punter but not so much with place-kicker for some reason.

    Clemson Grad Transfer QB Kelly Bryant (Mizzou)

    Lawrence may have been No. 1 recruit last year but my understanding is that it was debatable a toss-up between Justin Fields and Lawrence.
