I think that's where it will be interesting... DIaco and staff chose Mapieu due to his measureables over Williams. Williams wasn't a NG and wasn't "long" enough for DE. Will our new staff do the same? I'm aware that they went after Williams when they got here, and I really doubt they will let a local kid get away to Wisconsin in a full recruiting cycle, but based on the thread we are in, maybe they would?The reason for the angst: Harrison Phillips, the lineman from Lincoln that went to Wisky, Drew Ott, Bazatta. Granted they were not under Frost's watch, but they still inger in our memory of kids who should have been offered or offered earlier.
To your other guys listed like Ott, Bazata, and others. Ott would probably have been ok, and at NG we will sacrifice height more than at DE. But it will be really cool to see.
