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.
Didn't get Outlaw.
I don't think they'll get Elliott either. I just don't see how anyone would choose to come here over the chance to go play with Urban Meyer. Dontre Wilson is more of a lead back type and so Elliot can go out there and still be a Percy Harvin clone in Meyer's offense.
Or he can play for a year under Josh Henson then play for 2 years under a new OC until he finally realizes he's wasted his college career and goes pro as a Junior and gets taken in the 5th round based on athleticism alone.
This class is sucks, this staff sucks and if I were Truman the Tiger, I'd decommit and take my talents to Memphis.
