    More FB recruiting talk

    One thing that intrigues me about this current class is the number of guys that we don't know where they will end up playing?

    And I think that is a good sign, because we have a lot of guys that are very flexible in the positions that they can play. That is always a positive in my eyes.

    But here are just a few of the guys that I'm not sure what they will end up playing...

    Jaquarius Daniels: TE, DE, QB, or bulk him up to play on the OL or DL?

    Lalk: TE, DE, or bulk up for OL?

    Cotton: WR, CB, punt/kick return specialist, or bulk up for safety?

    Jevohn Miller: LB, or bulk up to be a DE?

    There are others too, but these guys came to mind.

    Thoughts?

    I think I can safely that Daniels will not be made a lineman of any type. They are high on his skill set period.
    Also, PR just said again this past week how good his OL kids are that are redshirting this year that will mix with the returners and hope (me talking now) that they will be more consistent in execution!


    Making a difference everyday!

    Ja 'Quarius Daniels is the type of recruits we need. I love getting HS quarterbacks that won't play quarterback for us. It just shows that they are great athletes.

    He will get every chance to play QB. You are jumping the gun bigtime assuming he will end up elsewhere.

    I agree with everything except Daniels. I think he will get a shot at QB, but I really think he ends up a TE. I don't think he is a better prospect than Richardsen and I don't think we can afford to not play him. I think it is important for a QB to be able to have some sort of success in high school and he hasn't had any because of the team surrounding him. I just think it will be hard for him to make the jump over SR because of the polish SR seems to already have. That's just my opinion and it is probably wrong.

    Re: More FB recruiting talk

    Think about this: Maybe Daniels is the QB for this class and Richardson isn't redshirting. Not all that likely, but it is a possibility.

    Re: More FB recruiting talk

    I think Daniels is our version of James Casey, who Herman had at Rice. He will probably end up listed as a TE, but he could play TE, WR, FB, RB, or wildcat QB. Brun will probably try to fill that role somewhat until Daniels is ready. Just my best guess.

    I think it is more likely that Sam Richardson will win the QB job over Ja'Quarius down the line. Of course he should get a shot, but my money is on Richardson.

    And if that happens then I strongly believe the coaching staff will find a way to get Daniels on the field somewhere. I was thinking TE myself but more of an H-Back style TE.

    That's fine, but if he doesn't play QB, he won't have to sit his *** on the bench.

    No, he really isn't. It looks like SR right now is much more polished. If he comes in and let's just say they both redshirt, then SR is still the better option, JD will move. We can't afford to have him on the bench IMO, especially when we need a TE in that class.

    Re: More FB recruiting talk

    I think Daniels will be given a shot at QB, but if he doesn't make it, most likely a TE.

    Lalk will probably end up being an outstanding OT before all is said and done.

    Cotton will need to add 25-30 lbs to be a good safety IMO.

    Jevohn Miller: I think he could be a great LB if he has the speed? If not, grow him into a DE.

    ALSO... what about Irving? I think he's going to be a beast at DE someday... or else he will be bulked up to be an OT. Some have said DT... but I'm not sure that 6'8" height would make for a good DT? Don't you want to be shorter at DT to get leverage?
