    Signing Day only a few weeks away now....

    ... so how many more commits can we expect to see? I know it's tough to calculate because there are a lot of factors involved, but I thought Rhoads himself has consistenly said we'd sign 26, correct?

    I count 25 on Rivals, so I'm guessing we may only have one left?

    If so, I think we have to go DE or DT. We are still VERY thin upfront defensively IMO.

    So... if you had to guess right now... how many more commits will we sign, and who are the likely targets?

Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    That's a nice list of schools recruiting him. Always nice to see us competing with good schools for recruiting. Star ratings can be misleading, but it's obvious that some schools think he can play. That's alwasy a good sign.

    23-24. Every school loses a commit or two on signing day. I think we land Kirksey and lose 2 or 3.

    Have a really good source in the Recruiting office and they said we have a busy weekend with recruits visiting... Always a good sign. Hopefully this nasty weather will be gone by then.

    few weeks, shouldn't it be next week? I thought it was usually toward the end of January.
