It was an odd thing to re-tweet if you're not thinking hard about Mizzou.
It would still make this a sub-par class (afterall, we're still dying in the trenches and the secondary, IMO), but it would help ease the sting a little.
Losing Donavohn Jones today was disappointing. I thought he had a shot to be an excellent safety. The JUCO safety, Duron Singleton, is likely to commit tomorrow and is the best JUCO S in the country, according to JUCO Junction.
I am worried about the secondary recruiting, though I think Aarion Penton is going to be a good CB.
Trenches... losing Jake Campos hurts. Clay Rhodes is going to be really good, I think. Gill should be serviceable. Sounds like they have an OK shot to land the former Florida OL commit from Georgia (friends with Printz).
DL... if Augusta and Antar Thompson can qualify, that's a strong pairing in the middle in this class. Losing DiMariya Mixon hurts a lot, because he already is a bigger guy and can be a great big DE or penetrating DT.
If they close, best-case scenario....
RB Ezekiel Elliott
S Duron Singleton
OL Josh Outlaw
This can be an ACCEPTABLE class (one that's good enough to help you stay in the 7-8 win range). The opportunity was there for this to be a foundation class that helped establish something better than that, and missing on it hurts a lot.
