    23 commits by my count so far

    How many more schollies do we have to give out this year? And what would everyone like to see us do with those schollies?

    I would like to see possibly a JUCO LB if possible, and Campos of course. Other than that, I'm not sure what else? With Schaeffer starting at safety right now, is this an area of need too?

    Re: 23 commits by my count so far

    From what I have heard Charlie Rogers doesn't like the redshirt strategy employed by the coaches and is planning on leaving after this year so that opens up a scholly. Just what I heard from someone who went to highschool with him and seems to be in line with what the signs have been pointing towards. Hope it isn't true. Just consider this my opinion. You never know when kids can change their minds.

    It'd be dumb for him to leave now. He'd either have to sit out another year or transfer to a FCS school.

    I don't understand some of these kids' thinking? Did he really think he was going to come in and start right away in year one? That wasn't going to happen. So if you're not going to see the field, you would think you would want to be RS so you're not wasting a year of your eligibility to sit on the bench all year?

    He'd be dumb to transfer now IMO. Rogers might be able to give us minutes at safety next year if Schaeffer is the best we have right now back there? But, if he's not "ALL IN", then get the heck out IMO.

    I forgot about JUCO, but yes, hopefully they can get him to stay. I think he could be a solid player for us in the future.

    I think he has a chance to be a 3-4 year starter.

    We don't need another RB as long as Wimberly stays committed to us. We will have James White, Shontrelle Johnson, Jeff Woody, DeVondrick Nealy, Robert Standard, Aaron Wimberly, and Tyler Brown all as RB schollies next year. If we can't find a decent RB out of that bunch, then we've done a TERRIBLE job recruiting.

    Your count is wrong.

    Glenn is a greyshirt, so that brings it back to 22. Some of these guys will early enroll and count towards the 2012 class which had the Pavlenko defection and I'm sure some more attrition before too long.

    Yeah but you can convert a runningback into something else fairly quickly. That and just look at Eastern Iowa U to see what injuries can do to a runningback depth.

    What class they end up in doesn't matter as much when you're flirting with the 85 limit.
