    2014 class by the numbers

    Rather than discuss individual targets specifically I'd like to know how you guys think this class is going to shape up;

    # total commits?
    # commits at each position?

    TIA

    18 Scholarships available if nobody else leaves (According to my figuring, we have 16 scholarship seniors plus 2 available scholarships)

    0 QB
    2 RB (Syria & Mister)
    3 WR (Lazard & Salters)
    2 TE (Schaffner)
    2 OL (Kodonko)
    2 DT
    1 DE
    2 LB (Seonbuchner)
    1 Safety (Northrup who may end up at LB)
    2 CB (Holmes & Ruth)

    I don't think Mister will be a RB.
    Also it's likely the two schollies will be given to walk ons. But I'm sure there will be some attrition so 18-19is probably about right for class size.

    Yeah those two will probably be given to walkons, but one will probably be to Coleman who is a senior anyway. The other could be for Austin Krick or Ben Boesen who are walkons on the depth chart.

    Pretty good estimate. As usual, I am nervous about status of DL prospects. Would be nice to have a year with several high quality DL recruits landed early, so we did not have to sweat that position so much.

    Re: 2014 class by the numbers

    I think one QB would be a good thing, even though we have so many young guys there now. More competition cannot be a bad thing.

    I'd say only 1 tight end. Instead bring in a quarterback, but realize it's not a necessity with both Lanning and Hodge in the class before.

    Re: 2014 class by the numbers

    Eighteen scholarship seniors--count the guys on the schedule poster. Plus Dika's slot. Plus whatever inevitable attrition before next February. Matter of fact, I can think of a handful of redshirt juniors who may elect to graduate and move on...

    There's a reason I said "may".

    And when I'm just speculating (although McCarney often did something like this--from his end), I'm not going to name anyone's names. That's not fair to the kids.

    Class will have 20-25 players. They always do, no matter how many scholarships start out available.

    So "may" these guys be disgruntled, burned out, being recruited over, or being nudged out?

    Anything can happen. That's why it falls under the heading of "attrition".

    For any of us to speculate on this would be a disservice to our program. People leave for various reasons as we all should know. Can we please just discuss potential recruits and their virtues in this recruiting thread?!
    And stay the hell off my lawn!











    "This is the most severe the talk has been since I've been here," said Thomas, who will be a junior. "If that was to be the case and I hope it's not -- whoever steps in, we can still do something special.
    "If it happens that Fred were to leave and I hope he stays -- we will stick together. We're super-talented, no matter what. We can do something special next year."
