    Do we go JUCO to replace George at MLB next year?

    Some of you that follow recruiting might already know this, but are we targeting a Juco kid to replace George at MLB next season? With Alton Meeks reportedly up to 260 lbs, and lack of qualty depth at LB already, do we go after a Tim Dobbins type MLB to plug the middle next year?

    I think I read somewhere that we will be doing that.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Sounds like a strong possibility especially if we lose a bunch more of games.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.

    ISU is looking at JUCO LBs, but I wouldn't be too concerned if White and Seeley are the two competing for the spot.

    Will Meeks stay at LB?

    Re: Do we go JUCO to replace George at MLB next year?

    Rhoads said last night on the call-in show that Seeley is further along than George was in year 2. He's sounded pretty excited about Seeley as the year has gone on. I personally don't see a huge need to bring in a JUCO.

    Said White is right there too for next season, dont think JUCO at LB is a need.

    He is growing out of that position according to Rhoads.

    Let's beef up Levi Peters and let him go crazy at MLB.

    Still could use JUCO for depth whether White, Seeley and Meeks are ready or not.

    Who else can we pump up and get some playing time? Get these guys on the field and make them into robot tackling dummies. Our defense has about a hundred tackles to make each week. Spread the wealth.

    Is that saying much? If White and Seeley are not even able to get snaps on one of the worst defenses in D1... are we supposed to count on them next year?

    JUCO needed for Safety, CB, LB, DE, OL, and the right QB would be fine with me. That is if we expect to compete in the top half of the Big 12.

    Whether it be Seeley or a JUCO linebacker-our best option is someone who can be in position and make tackles. So many missed tackles..

    Re: Do we go JUCO to replace George at MLB next year?

    If we can land any decent JC LBs, we need them. Next year we will have two returnees with any decent experience at all (I don't count Miller). We need to land any that we can who are good enough to play. We are recruiting them so the coaches evidently think so too.
