I believe the following grad transfer possibilities are still out there:

Stanford FB
Texas RB
Ouchita Baptist OL
Columbia DL

Isaac Klarkowski DL 6-2 275 Green Bay, WI (Southwest)

I just like this guy's football-sounding name and hometown (while still having a "Southwest" connection to boot!) Classic! Nice to have him aboard, and love this nugget from his short bio also:

Do we need another graduate transfer OL I wonder? We already have 2 coming in. We certainly could use the others. I would think the Texas running back (or backs) would be the biggest splash names.

Think a couple HS kids might be on the board still too.

RE: [split] Mike Bloomgren's 2nd Rice recruiting class
Coach Bloomgren seems to have a National recruiting plan; any opportunity to take that international? UVA scored three ACC quality European players this year - https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/jerryratc...nees/amp/. Seems like Rice academics would be a natural draw, as with Bailiffs Canada success. See 15:40 mark and 27 min mark here for discussion of the European players: https://247sports.com/college/virginia/A...128847749/ - also some interesting commentary on the transfer portal and grad transfers.

It sounds to me like it has been a good recruiting class and that there is the possibility of a few more trickling in (see the recent stories on the Roost).

Justin Gooseberry commits. Safe to say our OL will have a new look with the three grad transfers.

Wow, I'm surprised but all 3 of the guys coming in are veteran starters with tons of accolades at the high school and collegiate levels (the non D1 guys more so in the collegiate level; the Stanford guy more so at the high school level). We're easily now going from a position that was a question mark at times in 2018 (although we definitely got better as the season went on) to a position of strength in 2019. In fact, this may now be our best OL in decades if the transfers are as good as advertised.

Gooseberry is a twin I believe, looking at Ouachita Baptist's web site. It appears his brother is staying in Arkansas for his senior year.

This news begs the speculation that with 4 returning starters to begin with (plus other guys who had a start here or there on the OL), will anyone on the OL be moved to the defensive side during spring ball (or possibly TE?). Either way, it will be an incredibly interesting roster battle to watch.

It really is going to be interesting to watch. I thought our young offensive line was going to already be a strength this year but now they’ll have a lot of competition to make them better. This is the kind of position battle good programs have every offseason and I love it. Plus if one of our goals is to get kids ready for the NFL the current starters should relish the competition.

So is Gooseberry graduating? Or is he going to sit for a year?
