I guess i feel like there are better ways the scholly should be used

With 27 spots available we have enough room to take care of all the needs in the class & have room to bring him in to.

If this kid doesnt beat out Bo and start,....how long is he going to be ok riding the bench before he transfers

Probably a good while if ever since he was planning to Blue Shirt at UGA. He also can play slot WR or DB & is open to those positions as well.

We can get by without another one this year for sure. We are rich with inexperienced qbs as we stand. 

We're likely losing one at some point to position change or transfer & would be down to 3 schollied QBs. Gus wants 4 at minimum if possible.

You could say that about every kid we recruit at every position. 

I think folks are severely overestimating the transfer thing. Most kids know they might not start. 

This guy isn't Justin Fields or Trevor Lawrence. Or Bo Nix. He knows that.

True. I will say that I should've watched his film before making that statement. Kid is a baller though. He could fit in nice as a backup for Bo and yes he has the speed and quickness to play several other positions.

Is Harrison Veal a Preffed Walk on for Auburn? if so, what's his profile? 

1. Yes. 2. If you mean position I think it's LB & LS.

Do you think we use all 27? And what is a blue shirt? same as a redshirt?

redshirt, greyshirt I've heard of.  Also the Blackshirts (Nebraska defense nickname).  Blue shirt is another new made up name for me too that I haven't heard.

Don't know. Gus says he plans to.

Been around a few years. We did it with Bill Taylor a couple classes ago.

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.

Auburn is closer to Hattiesburg than Athens.  We also have a MS connection now so who knows.  I like the idea of this kids in O&B.

Good point. So many variables go into their decisions, both where to sign and whether or not to stick around. And a lot of those variables don't have anything to do with football.

For what it’s worth, Plumlee is a crazy athlete. A number of schools in MS and elsewhere recruited him as a DB/WR/Ath as opposed to QB.

@ellitor How do all these transfer guys who are on scholarship affect our numbers? Just the 85 ?? limit right (not sure of the number).  Makes no difference in our annual number we can recruit?

Ellitor, I know we got the fancy thread. I am just not getting it. Can you dumb it down for me? May take a while for you but I think I’ll get it sooner than later. Hopefully.

Ok. All players who get their first scholly from the school they are attending before having been at that school 2 years has to count against the yearly 25 Initial Counter/new player limit regardless of where they were previously. This includes transfers.

Please post a link on Harrison Veal. Thank you.

If you're asking for a profile thread to be created for him we don't do that for walk ons often & rarely have.

Will we get a commit this weekend? we need some momentum...………...

Unlikely this weekend (except maybe the GT HB visiting right now) but Brown could commit this week. The rest of our targets seem to be wanting to wait until Sunday. Hi
