Real name isn't Nik
Added Bishop Thomas to the DL as a Redshirt Freshman.
This is exactly what I was looking for. Every time we pick up a new player, I’m like “is that a position we need?”Rodrick Ward added to the senior class (1 year of eligibility with a redshirt year available if needed).
That's 8 seniors.
My count is 68 scholarships allocated. Adam's at 69, but I think that counted Hunter twice by accident since he's listed there as both CB and WR. (Someone please double-check and let me know if I screwed up somewhere).
Also, we supposedly have 4 more slots with guys retiring from football, so that would mean room for 20 more.
Here's my wishlist:
QB - I'd love to see a senior transfer to give us an experienced backup. May be hard to find.
RB - I think we could use another guy to at least be primary rotation. Junior class would be ideal for balance.
WR - Not a priority for me any more, but another senior wouldn't hurt.
TE - I think we need 2 guys here.
OL - 1 more OT, particularly a senior, would be great. I'm not going to complain if it's more than that. Be nice to have 15+ OLs.
DT - 1 more guy at over 300 lbs is vital. I'd be happy if we could find 2 or 3.
Edge - I'm feeling really good about the WDE version who will play at around 245-260 lbs. I think we need another couple at around 270 as SDEs who can flex to DT situationally for pass rush / dime sets.
CB - A couple more vets (Seniors or maybe a Junior) to push the total to 8 would be ideal.
S - Same comment as for CB. I like both groups, just want to see some more numbers considering special teams & how often you see injuries or targeting calls.
I wouldn't mind seeing a SR and a JR TE if there are any out there to balance those classes and give us 5 bodies at TE. Assuming they are better than the 3 Soph'sAdded JJ Hawkins to the DL as a RS Sophomore. Loving the DL class balance right now. Would love another RS Frosh for a balanced 8.
Who are the mystery four who are hanging up their cleats? Or is it super duper secret cosmic x-ray info....I finally figured out why my number was off. I hadn't added Jaylen Ellis as a RS Junior WR.
Roster is now at 73 scholarships.
12 more openings (16 if we have the 4 guys hang up the cleats, as reported is going to happen).
With supposedly 5 being set aside for Walk-On/JUCOs, so seems like maybe 5 more transfers are possible. I predict one at each: RB, TE, WR, DL, CBI added Chance Main back to our roster as a senior with 1 year of eligibility.
Moved him to DL instead of EDGE since he's up to 270 now.
75 scholarship players.
Yeah, but they also haven't announced if 4 guys are being subtracted. I think it was RG interview that we'd had 4 not enter the portal but hang up the cleats in exchange for an academic scholarship.
