Yes Sam White is a 2016 commit. It will be interesting to see what the coaches have planned with White. Watching his film, he appears to lack the acceleration / foot speed of a defensive end. I'm wondering if they see him as a defensive tackle.

He has great length which helps in staying off of blocks. White looks like a guy that they see potential in long term rather than addressing immediate needs.

Probably why he only has 2 other 1AA offers.

Isn't Idaho still FBS in the Sunbelt for now?

Wow....I hope he has upside. Seems we are really struggling to land 3star talent. 7th in CUSA is not going to get us where we need to be.

RE: 2017 Old Dominion Football Recruiting Den
I'm glad to see us get the commitment along the D-line. That area on the recruiting front is starting to worry me. We look to be set there for a few years, but this year and last have been thin (numbers wise not talent wise). Last year we brought in 2 DT's and Miles Fox played as a true freshman. That would leave Mofu Taiwo as the only RS Freshman next year. Tim Ward was the only scholarship DE from the 2015 class and he played right away so we have no redshirt DE's from that class.

This year we have commitments from one DT and one DE. Effectively we are looking at a total of 3 DT's and 2 DE's over two recruiting classes. Of which, Fox and Ward are already playing with all of the redshirts from the class of 2014. Theoretically that would leave us with 2 Jr/Sr DT's and 1 Jr/Sr DE in 2019. I know a lot can happen between now and then but i would like to see us land a few more.

I like Elijah Conner's highlights a lot. He's 6'1 and has good length, acceleration and speed. Reminds me a little bit of Kane Miskel, who I think is going to be a significant contributor next season.

Its a numbers game. We had so many defensive lineman in the 14/15 classes. We have the following:

Appouh Soph
Ximenes Soph
Ward Soph
Butler Freshman
Childs Freshman

Rotimi Jr
Fox Soph
Londree Soph
Toal Soph
Tyson Soph
Taiwo Fresh

2016 incoming: Ross/White

Im sure 17/18 will see many more defensive lineman.

It takes time. Heck, we are even above Marshall in that ranking.

Once this class of freshman/soph come thru and perform, we'll see another bump up in recruiting classes.
