    True - but against SEC level play this season, Dwight didn't play much and only had one stop, so that worries me a bit We haven't seen Mathis, so who knows. him redshirting isn't a big deal as a lot of the bigs need time to adjust and get stronger and better conditioned to college but we just don't know what he can do yet.

    Barmore likely won't play NT at least not at first since we are reporting his weight as 290 - that makes him more of a DE in our scheme. Wynn might be able to play NT since we've reported him at 308 and he's on campus, but I've heard DE for him also.

    Given both freshmen might need an offseason with cochran to be ready for SEC play, getting a big-body 300+ pounder grad transfer who can take some inside reps would seem to be a good idea if we can.

    Flip side of needing an offseason with Cochran is getting a current offseason with Cochran to blow up into a more formidable force in a 320-330 pound frame. Would think there's a candidate or two presently on the roster at a smaller size who fits or "is fit" for such endowment of the art of playing on 'Bama's DL...

    Good point and there could be a player or two the staff would consider bulking up to move further inside. Looking at the roster I'm not sure who that would be though. Buggs might be the closest, but would we want to bulk him up and slide him in after the year he had from DE? Williams and Ray are certainly more DE than NT material, then there is Davis, who has the mass to slide in, but was also the most productive DE we had on 2017 so I would think the staff wouldn't want him inside full time unless one of the other DEs comes on like gangbusters. As others have said, he's also a bit tall to be the prototype NT and hold the point with a low pad level.

    Think we have an opportunity to be fine at DE IF we needed to ready one to slide down inside.

    Add another one to the list, this guy is from Rice.

    I think so also, the question is which DE is capable of sliding down inside if we need them to.

    I think now that CNS wants to add another DL and will be surprised if we don`t. Just can`t have too many O and D line guys ( and I suppose LB`s ! ).

    Think we take two DLs, and a QB.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Didn’t know if this had been posted yet but here is some highlights of Preston Gordon from Rice posted 2 months ago.

    He seems to shed blocks really well and get after the QB.

    The competition is not real good but he did move around good and got after the QB.

    Re: Grad Transfer Recruiting 2018

    My expert analysis [] is that the DT from the Cuse or Clemson would fit our needs better. Both 300 lbs and both played tougher competition than the fellow from Rice.

    Edit
    Samuels from Syracuse is the only 300 pounder. Come on down, Katon!

    There is a premium article on 247sports that says we might have interest. Sterling Johnson was a former 4 star recruit and started at Clemson.

    He is listed as 6’4 300 lbs. Here is an article saying he has or had interest in transferring to Miami when Coach Kulo was there. Might be worth watching.

    Would he be eligible immediately ?
