    Re: ESPN's take on our recruiting class

    I would average a C- in many of my classes and turned out okay. I guess we will find out, I thought we did just fine.

    I didn't realize money was kicked off his team. What was that all about?

    OH yeah and for those that don't think the experts know what they are talking about on recruiting. The top classes always end up at the top.

    1. Texas -- A
    2. Oklahoma -- B-plus
    3. Texas A&M -- B-minus
    4. Texas Tech -- B-minus
    5. Oklahoma State -- C-plus
    6. Missouri -- C-plus
    7. Nebraska -- C
    8. Colorado -- C
    9. Baylor -- C
    10. Kansas -- C-minus
    11. Iowa State -- C-minus
    12. Kansas State -- C-minus

    Do you ever think its the other way around? Maybe these recruiting classes are ranked this way due to the tradition of the schools they end up going to? Just saying it goes both ways.

    ESPN is terrible. They don't do their homework. Rivals is by far the best.

    Plus how many true tight ends will be needed for Herman's spread offense.

    Re: ESPN's take on our recruiting class

    In addition to Franklin we have 6-4 Senior Derrick Catlett, 6-8 soph Carter Bykowski, 6-6 soph Kurt Hammerschmidt, and oh yes, sophomore Patrick Neal of West Des Moines, who came out of nowhere last season to grab one late-season touchdown pass and played some great ball.
    That's five TEs, all except Hammerschmidt having good experience.
    Somebody thinks we needed to recruit tight ends?

    We have experienced tight ends coming out our ears. See my other post.

    Re: ESPN's take on our recruiting class

    Franklin Catlett are the only TE's out of that group. Hammerschmidt is a stretch even though he has the size and Bykowski/Neal will probably not play a whole lot. Just my guess
