This is a discussion on recruiting for 2013--CPJ says we need running backs within the Georgia Tech Football forums, part of the Georgia Tech Sports Message Boards category; no argument from me. BB is a serious need for us, IMO. according to AJC, we've offered seven HS running ...
no argument from me. BB is a serious need for us, IMO. according to AJC, we've offered seven HS running backs so far. be nice to land two, very solid backs. or, maybe just one seriously incredible one . . .

Hell yes we do. Been screaming that for a while now. Had Perkins panned out at BB, we would be in a better position. If Marcus is a super stud, he could probably play some BB as a TFR. I wouldn't mind seeing Perkins get reps at AB to add muscle to the position, but Sims needs a backup. Snoddy at BB intrigues me as well. Maybe he and Perkins can switch, although he may be a good AB too if his speed is as advertised. Who knows. Im ready to do some evaluating! Maybe CPJ will throw us a bone and give us a few open Saturday scrimmages.
What kills me is the article says Ugag has room for 30 in next year's class. How is that possible? I know it says some could enroll early and count against last year's class, but that's only if there was room in last year's class. Didn't they sign a big class last year? I just don't get it and Ugag claims not to oversign. They must have huge attrition is all I can guess.
I guess I shouldn't complain. I did the math and if team x had zero attrition over 5 years and redshirted every freshman, the most it could sign yearly is 17. That would give them 85 players over 5 years. I've believe the path for success at GT is to get as close to this model as possible. We're not going to out talent anyone, we're gonna have to out veteran them. We still need talent and a handful of extraordinary players goes a long way, but if we want to compete consistently with the big boys, we're gonna need balanced classes and two deeps littered with 4th and 5th year players.
I am so tired of hearing how great the option was run at Navy and GSU. Not directed towards you Stoned, just saying...What the heck is our problem? OL attrition?! That is getting old. I am of course assuming the implication is that we still aren't running it as good at GT. sorry, don't want to hijack this thread as I love talking RBs.
the article states we're going to have a rather small signing class for 2013. 14-15 total. what are our needs and how many at each position are we looking for? i'm thinking:
"athletes"--3 (AB, QB, WR)
Yuk, we don't know what they can or can't do. Hopefully blocking for Orwin is on the list. Another ? for the offense. We may come to realize just how crucial Roddy's blocking was.
I'm optimistic on AB. We have so many bodies there...all we need is one or two to be good.
