It'll be a lot tougher saying no to Minnesota with PJ Fleck in charge.

Do we really? We usually get mentioned as an after thought which could be good for us.

One of my friend's sons plays lb along side Thomas. He told me during football season he thought he would be going to UAB. I'm having lunch with my friend Monday and I'll ask him again.

I'm suspecting we only have a dozen or so spots open anyway.

Might as well use them to get the best we can get.

If Clark offers, it isn't a soft offer.

I was wondering if he did so, thought it may be Johnston related. We are already stacked at LB. Whisenhunt is really good.

How many signees do you think Clark will have in the signing period?

& I'm guessing most will be freshmen.

no we don't have a dozen slots right now. im thinking we have 7 or 8 open. we will probably sign somewhere around 26 or so. I think we still can land whisenhunt. still not sold on us getting Thomas Johnston, although im hopeful.

So we are trying to take 2 safeties? Young & Handy-Holly

Surely we wouldn't take Moll over Whisenhunt.

I would not doubt that at all. SAF is one position some of the coaches thought we were thin at coming out of spring.

RE: official visits this weekend
yeah but if we land Johnston he could play our hybrid safety LB position, usually a nickel package. I think clark calls that position "star"

In today's game, you can never have too many good defensive players. Ask Alabama what happens when defensive players play too many snaps...

RE: official visits this weekend
it will be interesting to see how it plays out. currently ranked 13/14 in cusa recruiting class but this class could still end up being a top 3 or 4 class in CUSA. would like to see us nail down Eugene Minter, but he's going to Marshall this weekend so looks less likely. Hopefully it's cold and rainy in Huntingdon, like it was every time I played there.

How & why could we have 8 open spots & yet sign about 2 dozen players?

Just wondering.
