    Under Recruiting Positions

    Assuming they sign with this years class, we will have 6 scholarship QB's and 7 scholarship RB's for the 2012 roster. By my count, we only have 4 true DB's on the roster next year (Lynn, Reeves, Thomas, and Cotton). Only Reeves has even played a snap. We also will only have 4 interior lineman on scholarship (Simon, McDonough, Pompey, and Woods). So unless some major developments happen, our defense is going to have to play injury free next year and develop some talent very quickly. I could see Knott and Klein having about 400 tackles between the two of them next year because of these weaknesses on the team.

    DISCLAIMER: I know the staff is aware of this and I know that DL are the hardest to recruit but I don't understand the rationale of having so many guys on scholarship when its obvious the team has major needs. I don't think bringing in a ton of JUCO guys is going to help this situation either.

    Washington? Watson? Broomfield? Richardson? Brackens?

    Re: Under Recruiting Positions

    I think you are missing a few guys.

    Brandon Jenson and Clayton Laing are playing this year and will be back next year as interior linemen. In fact, interior DL should be one of our deepest positions next year. There are 6 guys on the depth chart who have all played this year, and 5 of them will be back. Then we can add in Pompey and Jon Casper, if his switch works out.

    I think your disclaimer should state that you don't know the roster very well.

    Re: Under Recruiting Positions

    Cleyon Laing (RJr) & Brandon Jensen (RFr) are there on the DL now & next year.
    Jansen Watsen & Sam Richardson are there @ CB
    Washington, Givens, Broomfield, Brackens, Morgan there for S & hybrid S/LB
    Miller & George in the fold for LB. Morgan & Mattison may be by then, too.
    1 or 2 solid JuCos could really solidify, but staff appears pleased with depth versus couple years ago, & this is still an area of emphasis to improve upon. Current recruiting class looking pretty solid, too.

    Re: Under Recruiting Positions

    I'm not following your math. QB's: Jantz, Barnett, Richardson and Rohach. I guess you could say 5 if you count Tiller, but I'm betting they move him to WR IF he's still around.

    DB's: Reeves, Washington, Lynn, Richardson, Brackens, Cotton, Thomas, Watson. I'm guessing that the younger Knott and the Rogers kid from IC are both DBs. Still think that they could use a JUCO CB, but the situation isn't terrible.

    Interior DLs: Laing, McDonough, Simon, Pompey, Woods, Jensen. That's a nice rotation with the possibility of Kron and Meyers moving inside down the line...not to mention Bevins.

    Edit: Forgot about Givens and Broomfield.

    What do you mean, "possibility"? Meyers was recruited as a DT.

    Re: Under Recruiting Positions

    You're missing Rosie Maggitt. Will be a senior next year or Junior if he gets the medical redshirt.

    Other than that, it was a very intelligent post.

    Re: Under Recruiting Positions

    Edit: I did miss Laing because he was put as a DE on cyclones.com. I was referring to interior defensive lineman and cornerbacks, not Defensive Ends and safeties. We have plenty of guys that can play safety (Givens, Washington, etc.) It was also my understanding that Brandon Jensen is not on scholarship. That still doesn't take away from my point. It doesn't make any sense to have 13 guys on scholarship competing for 2 positions and 9-10 guys on scholarship competing for the four positions that I mentioned.

    Also A. Young may be back at corner next year too if he takes a medical redshirt this year.

    Is a safety not a DB (defensive back)?

    Re: Under Recruiting Positions

    Could also have something to do with the fact that QB and RB are typically the best two athletes on a HS team. They can be used at other positions.
