Last year I really felt like we needed to land more DL recruits. Not only did we finish short in my opinion but we lost one to academics on top of that. This 2016 class looks typically awesome with the exception once again on the DL. We have one guy committed, a three star out of Fayetteville Arkansas. Seems like Fat boy isn't going to want to see us take one from his back yard so that guy will probably get a lot of pressure to flip to the Hogs.
Next year we will have essentially two players left with experience. (Hand and Payne). Hopefully Raekwon Davis will improve to give us three relatively good starters. but that's not a given. Jamar King hasn't made an impact. Neither has Johnny Dwight. Josh Frazier is a decent inside guy but not a DE. I see immediate playing time for any DE that can press the box. Does anyone have any insight into this? Has the firing of Bo Davis had a negative impact there? The new coach appears to be solid, but can he recruit?
