    On a national signing day that was mostly a snooze fest, the most exciting news for me was the health of Wildeman, Rogers, Jurgens and Taylor. 3 out of those four were Rivals 4 star recruits last year. Frost even lamented in his new conference how sad it was for him to see those guys on the sidelines last year.

    I'm going with Tanner and Alston. They need to play with rage against the machine attitude.

    This might be the obvious answer, but Im still going with Washington. If he makes a significant jump, that is an awfully dangerous combo in the backfield with Martinez and would likely give us the offensive firepower to beat everyone on our schedule.

    WR - Jaevon McQuitty
    TE - Austin Allen
    TE - Kurt Rafdal
    OL - Broc Bando
    OL - Matt Sichterman

    That's all that is left? That could shrink down to 4 or 5 left by the time all is said and done.

    What happened to Herian anyway? Was it a knee or concussion?

    There apparently wasn’t a column for personal character or team commitment in Riley’s recruiting charts. The ability to overlook abject coaching incompetence in exchange for a pillow-soft ride (with sprinkles) must have been #1.

    Katerian Legrone: Very important that he join Stohl as a threat at TE. We did not threaten the middle of the field anywhere near enough last year.
    This needs to improve to the level seen with UCF's tight ends (30-40 catches) to enhance the big play aspect of the running game.

    On defense, I hope that JoJo Domain has been working hard on S&C to remain at OLB. Speed, speed, speed on defense is what we need and he provided that when he was well enough to play.
    Speed makes plays, provides options (blitz), and can outrun mistakes when mistakes are made.

    With all the players redshirted and 2019 class, give me speed on defense please to go with the experience of the same system two years in a row and very good things will happen :).

    Sichterman. Got to be Sichterman. It will be interesting to watch TE development this next season, but I think Stoll has that position locked up for now. DD and DT on the defensive line need to take steps forward obviously, but I am most hopeful for added depth on the offensive line, and MS is a guy who can provide it.

    With so few ‘17’s remaining, this roster will have a hole in ‘older’ leadership at some point. Lots of guys in the middle will need to step up.

    I think the number I heard today was something around 80/160 freshmen on this roster. Look out in 3-4 years.

    Herian, that was a Greek tragedy. Watched him play in HS and he was a men among boys in C1. He most likely would have had an NFL career. He was 6'5" 250 and ran about a 4.6 forty. After the injury I doubt he could even break 5 seconds.
