I've seen him play some games on Chad Bush's The Prep. He is a player. No doubt.

Kind of hard to say no to Tennessee. Kind of like an academic wiz kid turning down Harvard to go to Central Michigan. 03-lmfao (I like to take little playful digs at CMU).

He chose Kansas. I have a cousin on team, so I probably will be able to talk to him at some point.

Several more JUCO offers to Terry Webb DT out of Kilgore TX with 12 offers and Ugo Nosike DT out of Butler an AZ bounceback. We may be making an offer soon to JUCO QB Ike Udengwu III 6'3 195 a Mt Sac.

We are about a month out from December signing. Here's where we are:

We are ranked 88 nationally. We don't usually finish in the top 100.

I ain't worried about high school kids so much as portal OL players. I fear for our OL next year unless we bring in real FBS experience.

I agree this area needs an upgrade. I think we are more likely to go the JUCO route but we will see.

Linemen develop slowly. Most of our very talented DL recruits from two years ago are just getting in the mix.

BTW, this is more of a 'discussion' question, but are WR and OL the two positions where we sign numbers, many walkons, and see who develops?

This ranking doesn't mean much. They factor the quantity of commits into the overall score. CMU has 20 commits so they rank #1 although the average score of the commits for every team is very consistent. Furthermore, grading a player, especially a HS kid, is very subjective.

CMU and WMU always rank high on these lists. Their highly-ranked players will enjoy watching EMU play in a bowl game while their teams stay home.

Get good players for the program, plug a few holes, target a few key transfers, and trash these lists.

When your two best wide receivers are walk-ons and your best player in the last decade came to EMU because it was his only FBS offer, I would heartily agree with you about the subjectivity of recruiting rankings.

Expect Gabbert to go to another G5 and I wouldn't be surprised if CC took a good look at him. Gabbert does have 2 years of eligibility left and that makes him intriguing. Not sure that he's an upgrade over Austin though.

That said, i do think EMU will add a transfer or possibility a JUCO (didn't they just offer a JUCO?) And they should add another HS recruit. Add 2 to the group of Smith, McCoy, Salem, and Blount. A lot of MAC teams had to play 2-4 QBs this fall so depth is needed.
