I agree, best OL class I have ever seen and I've been following it since the Forrest Davis days in the 90's as a teenager. No doubt this class is not playing around and if they pan out like the "scouts" think these boys could make the 2012 O-Line look weak!
I just read the article and it got me pumped.
We'll find out in a couple years. On paper though yes.

OL resurgence will fix a lot of last year's issues!!!
Ok, I am officially giddy.
Any real chance with Mama ? I saw Coach visited him at his HS.

On paper, we have a great class, but we have at least one with an academic ? (Jackson); another that was thought to be a possible flip to another school or possibly to the DL (McBride), and I think JC had a knee injury this fall.
With that said, I think we have enough talent coming in that we'll find at least 3 multi-year starters for us, which is very good for one class.
On paper and based on potential, a great class. However there are some key points at which the actual talent evaluation kicks in:
Feb 2014 - who actually signs LOIs
June 2014 - who beyond the early entries enrolls for summer school
August 2014 - who is on campus for Fall camp
December 2016 - who actually stayed and lived up to the recruiting rankings
The last, in my opinion, is the only one that really matters. The rest are just points where we fans get a lot of talking points.
