    10 verbals so far with a few more said to be making their choices later this month.
    By position we have
    4 OL
    3 WR
    1 RB
    1 QB
    1 LB
    Perhaps we are about 1/2 done with ’18.
    What are most pressing needs for the rest of this class?

    DL for sure as 3 of 4 starters leaving this year, need a couple of DBs and a few more LBs, also at least one TE

    D. Harris will certainly be back. He is only a junior.

    I’d like to see another RB. 2 of the 3 returning will be seniors next year. Although Chadbourne and Allen are superb athletes, I’d like some more depth. It’s a tough position.

    Other than that, I’m looking for the best athletes.

    Just noting possible 5th yrs at WR and DB. Prendergast and Morrow also on DL. Hawkinson perhaps on OL

    Sorry Rich, I thought you were referring to those who are listed as seniors but may return next year. Either way, Harris is not eligible.I did a quick search to see what we lose next year, barring 5th yr eligibility.

    DB 1 (although Q may come back since he missed academic time)
    DL 4
    OL 3
    QB 2
    RB 2
    TE 2
    WR 3

    Note that is only 17 graduating seniors. We may be well past the half way point.

    As van noted, DL may be a high priority. I’m not sure where Gurth is slotted to line up next year.

    Gurth could be on either side I think. 18 looks like about our #. McCain not on rostdr opens up some $. Not sure how LU computez aid other than they do switch all to non athletic need. A lot depends on why he left.

    since Frosh are rarely ready to be starters, next years incoming class should give consideration to replacing this years juniors, rather than just seniors, so although only Q is senior DB, there are 6 juniors there, need more than 1 in this years recruiting, similarly there are only 2 underclass TEs right now so 1 or 2 TEs should be in this class

    I sure hope Sasha is back for a 5th year with both Troy and Gatlin graduating

    Good point on TEs. Puhl is likely for next year assuming he lives up to the hype. A couple of TEs would be good. Doubt we’ll need a FB unless Brisson tweaks Folmar’s O.
    The way Andy is raving about frosh DNs I would be surprised by more than 1.
