Can you lock this and only update it?

TIA

I'd rather not. I want to keep it open for questions & discussion. Any time the OP is updated there will be a post with the link to the OP in it.

RB (2-3)

4* Alaric Williams: Recruited as an Athlete that can play RB or DB

3* juco Octavius Matthews: Recruited as the change of pace back

4* RB Devan Barrett: AU believed to be trending

If we land Barrett, the suddenly 'slim' backfield, according to many, becomes awfully crowded. Very interesting.

We've already got him, that's my point. Nice problem to have :)

Basically the article says that we want 3-4 receivers. E already has that info for us, good job E. But damn, we signed 4 WR's last year and we're going after another 3 or 4 this year. Is not that little much for our offense, an offense which usually consists of run up the middle on first and second down and screen pass on third and 8?

TIA.... I'm asking for a friend....

may be that they are taking the approach that Mikey has been proposing for LBs the past few years. Stock up at the positions and hope that a handful pan out. Maybe Mikey got in someone's ear, and they agreed with his analogy.......................... :-)

Main difference, we have signed top guys at WR from time to time. Until the 2015 class we'd been swinging and missing at LB. (Tre Williams excepted). 2015 was good, but right back to ONE LB in 2016. Maybe that's what they are trying to avoid at WR.

Do we have a shot with Jacoby Stevens? we are in his top 3 but I don't see anyone talking about him on this site.

Possibly. Likely need him to show up at the picnic next week. His recruitment appears to be completely up in the air even though hje plans to announce soon.
