Nice to see Kilby on the roster. With a little more weight, he's a difference maker!!!!

RE: Unofficial 2017 Spring Ball Thread
Team is trying to get Dawson another year on the DL as well. Going to have more depth on the interior of the DL this year, than last, when we were already very deep. Seem to be missing one of the Juco DL recruits this year, from the same school as Dawson and Granger, although his name escapes me right now.

Hopefully the move of Smith from DL to interior OL gets him motivated......he has the talent. This would also allow Nielsen to give it a shot on the outside. Also hoping Donnellon makes that big jump from 1st year deer in the headlights, to second year contributor.

Also interesting that Stiebeling is ahead of Porter on depth chart.....although it makes sense. If Roback stays healthy, need to start getting Stiebeling some reps if possible.

Question about Porter and QB?

Can Porter play some WR, for example, to get him on the field if not at QB?

BTW, I didn't see a depth chart. All I saw was a chart where players were listed by position numerically.

Porter will not play WR......we have plenty of guys at those spots. Some promising freshmen coming in as well, that he'd just be taking valuable reps from in practice.

Porter is really just an insurance policy against a Roback injury this year. Tough spot for him, but it is what it is.

I believe that guy signed with someone else therefore there is no one from Dodge CC in this recruiting class.

As I said in the pre-spring FB thread, it would be nice to have updated weights to see how the winter conditioning has worked out.

ETough might be referring to Desmond Kelly who is signed but NOT a mid-year eligible.

I assume the only players listed in this spring prospectus are those on campus. New recruits to start school this summer aren't listed.

Thanks correct about Kelly from Dodge City, I know we were looking at a number of players from that school.

Yep, that's him. Not quite as big as Granger or Dawson, but much more mobile, and still looks strong enough to push the pocket. Should step into the rotation immediately, basically taking the spot vacated by Brown's graduation.
