    New recruits piling in

    The week brings 5 new commits.No 4 stars but a couple that are pushing it.

    1.Wes Walker-CB from Nashville- 6 ft 190 --Had several P5 offers.A hitter at CB that may end up at safety.Good get.#15 in Tenn supposedly
    2.J Black-OL from Gwinnett Cty-6-4,270-he flipped from Western Ky-Not a top take but has potential.
    3.Jordan Huff- 6-1,180 Madison,ga-had several P% offers--a top athlete, is WR and CB in high school, a CB for us, very confident as DB,overplays to go for int--and gets some (we don't see when he gets burned)-looks the part of a very good get
    4..J Camp 6-2,270 , DT/DE ,S.Forsyth hi, brother of WR Camp on team, good family/father is coach-like, big in weight room,good potential but now depends on size to overpower guys, good on bullrush but needs lateral quickness, standsup so loses leverage--looks better than he really is now
    5.D Douse-DE/LB ,Savannah private school-6-2,230-in his small league he dominates over small white guys, but he is an intriguing athletic combo of speed and quickness,also plays WR, for us could be a nice big ILB or a small DE if he gains weight

    There is some talent in this group.Huff seems like the only difference maker .Oddly at this point although because of last 2 classes,he is not needed as much..
    I still have not seen any real size on lines in the class. 280 is ok but this is the age of 300+..... We need beef. But At least we aren't getting 5-9 DBs anymore.

    GT always has more than enough skill position players. They need to take 1 to 2 more linemen per year and with the additional numbers hope to find more productive players at those positions. GT gets consistently beat in the trenches by the top teams, not at the skill positions.

    it's good to see the D side getting some recruiting focus. Some big ass'd DTs and quick DEs are what we need most in Woody's scheme, IMO.

    Huff and Walker are both very good gets. Good combination of size and speed. Camp has potential but it is hard to see him as NT unless he puts on more weight. 247 has our recruits ranked in order. The 4 lowest are the offensive and defensive lineman commits. I would like to see us take a chance on a big DT (over 300 ideally). Really need that run stopper in the 3-4.

    Ran the 34 for yrs and you need two good and large tackles and a big wide nose..its set up to shield the backers from the old but two 240 lb backers should cover the tackle and dive wholes..big problem is you need a pass rush which is hard unless you bring a backer..folks most ref folks either run of ref like 34 or even one like 43...Woody will do well but he ain't lining up on Saturday...need to double our recruitment for big uglies

    Jim,
    We get a bunch of skilled guys but not always are usable. ex-all the QBs that don't make it at QB. (they have 2 in '19 class now--I wonder if the Calhoun dude from SC will actually sign) A bunch of 175 lb backs,great in hi school.much less in P5,
    then there is that strange animal at WR--he must be pushing 200 lbs for blocking (just check the history here) but uch,oh- he's got to catch 1 pass every 25 minutes of play time from a less than accurate QB-good luck-- but we are now getting several 185 lb WRs for receiving but can they block?
    yep, we are getting beat in the lines in recruiting generally which isn't terrible IF IF IF we could keep all them for 4 yrs

    Mack, I agree that we need more DLmen. We need to be two deep with very little loss in skills. Those defensive guys need to be ready 100% of the time and not winded because they stay on the field forever. Man would I love to see roatation of someone on every play. We need to attack the offense. Hope we have seen the last of the "bend but don't break BS".

    NY,
    these days Offenses run fast so you CAN'T sub easily, so it negates much of any depth
    it looks like a front Dline of 250, 280, 270--unless they are jets, we really need 275, 300, 275 so the LBs can flow
    the attack def is great if you have the guys and exp but we don't now,look for some big breakdowns sometimes

    We will play our best defense when our defense is on the sidelines. If we don't have success with our offense we will be in trouble.
