    Up to 18 verbal commits right now...

    How many more do we have room for this year, and who do you think the remaining signees are likely to be?

    I figure we might only have about 5 or so left, correct?

    One interesting thing I noticed is that we currently only have one OL committed in Daniel Burton. Someone had said that Pierre Aka could end up as an OL too possibly? If so, that's still only 2. That isn't enough is it? I know we have some good quality young OL on the roster, but don't you usually want to sign about 4 or 5 OL per class?

    Other than that, what needs do we have? I guess I'd like to see another LB. Maybe a DT. Also, what about RB? I know that seems like a strength, but who knows about Shontrelle's future, and Barkley Hill also had a bad injury in his last game for Cedar Falls too, so injuries could potentially be a concern here. We still have James White, Woody, Duck, Standard, and Nealy though. So maybe we're ok there?

    Thoughts?

    I think we need or are after a Tight End as well. Not something I would know, just something I've seen a lot of the recruiting gurus here and at Cyclone Report say.

    Yeah, I think you're probably right. It just seems like we've signed a bunch of TE's lately. But really we only have Hammerschmidt, Brun, and Pierce Richardson back next season. Cyclones.com has Lemke listed at TE, but I think he's a DE now, right? I was thinking that Branderhorst was a young guy, but he's a senior... that stinks... I like him a lot at TE. So yeah, we need a TE.

    We could really be at 16 if Morrissey and Stokes end up classified as last year.

    That would work for me! Not the best offer list in the world, but he looks like he could be a beast.

    Don't let the offer list throw you off. This kid would be a great get.

    His offer list was hindered by an early season ACL (some team or teams pulled offers according to his Twitter account). I would be VERY happy to have him join CyclONEnation!

    Duaron Williams, out for season, ACL, Jones: Jones star Duaron Williams out for rest of season with ACL tear - Orlando Sentinel

    Orlando Jones offensive lineman Duaron Williams, the No. 10-ranked player in the Sentinel's 2012 Central Florida Super60 will miss the rest of the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last week at Lake Wales.


    Duaron Williams narrows list - Oct 2011
    “I do want to go play right away, but if I have to redshirt, you have to do what you have to do,” Williams said. “But I do want to go to a school where I can get some early playing time. I see so many guys, like Mike Brewster (from Edgewater High), starting center at Ohio State for four years. I know it can be done.”

    Rivals review of Duaron:

    Rivals.com Football Recruiting - Prospect Breakdown - Duaron Williams

    Here's one clip:

    It's very obvious that Williams' size is one of his strongest assets, but his light feet and long arms are other factors that college recruiters covet. They see a man that can move around the line, pull if necessary, and get out his stance with great ease. His footwork and athleticism are hard to find for a man of his stature, but it allows him to really hold his ground against some very strong defensive tackles in Florida. They see a player that has long enough arms to create separation from the defensive linemen, while keeping the opposition away from his quarterback.

    Apparently Duaron had some offers that were pulled after the ACL tear.
