    Putting a Bow on this class

    Well, here we are a week and a half from signing day and we have our sights set on a tremendous day February 5th. We already have a superb class but there are a couple of pieces left out there that can make this recruiting year one to talk about for decades to come. Below are the names left that I think are left on our board. Who do we get? Where does Coker fit into things? Am I leaving anyone out?

    Hump
    Elam
    Evans
    Thomas
    Dupre
    Ross

    This is no specific order...well, maybe my wish list order. I'm not sure how many spots we have left but the top three are priority in my view. How do we close guys?

    Ross, at this point, looks like a closed door. He had a spot for one visit and appears to have chosen Miami over us. Hard to imagine him committing at this point without visiting, though it has happened before. Like your list, though.

    Yea, Ross is a probably a long shot. But he has an offer so you never know. Given the Coker situation, though, I get the feeling that we only have a couple of spots left. If that is the case then I'd say we are rolling the dice to get two between Hump, Elam and Evans. That, of course, is total speculation on my part.

    A new safety was offered today by Kirby. I think he is coming in this weekend for a visit. He is committed to ECU, but I can't remember his name.

    If we can just get Humphrey, Elam, and Evans and we sign the rest already committed I would be very very happy.

    Man, that would be historic class! I don't know, I still think Elam and Evans are long shots at best. We really need Humphrey, sign a position of need like Ross or Boston and bring in Coker along with the rest...that is a killer class!

    Agreed that it looks good on paper. Gonna be tough to be better than 2008, though: Julio Jones, Damien Square, Upshaw, Barrett Jones, Robert Lester, Ingram, Hightower, Dareus, Cody, Barron, B Smelley, M Williams . . . . several others who were important contributors.

    That group won some games.

    Yeah that's true and to think most "experts" people were saying that Miami's class that year was the best. I knew that was BS from the start.
