    Except he's already about 20 pounds heavier than Moss and should get on the field early. Love the kids we signed in the last class but I think most of them will stay at LB.

    Rivals has him #16 WSDE and 10th best player from VA though unranked nationally.

    Please tell me Bogle and Summerall are going to fill out because they are 6'5/6'6 on paper. I think Diabete has the frame to get into the 260s. It makes the last class seem so much more balanced if Hopper and Pierre play pure LB, Bogle and Summerall at DE type spots, Diabete full sized DE, Humphries true DT.

    Dexter will have to work to stay under 300. Eventual DT? Maybe we already have three DT types in the class but a fourth would be welcomed by me. Staff is telling us by what they recruit where they think some of last year's guys end up.

    This is a great commitment. But, "DE Commitment" in the post title startles me at first glance every time I see it.

    If the player with the ball stays in bounds, Powell is going to hit him. No idea what his official timed speed is but he plays fast. Check his HUDL and be impressed by the number of plays he makes with his senior season yet to come.

    FWIW I imagine staffs find out who a player is lined up against in their film to help decide what level of competition they are competing against. Seems reasonable. He does look very fast.

    Lock up Goods' teammate M'Ba, hold onto everybody including Joseph, and call it a day at DL

    Looks like Virginia is the big favorite. Would love to see us get Tim Smith.

    I like this but you still have to entertain Tim Smith and Jayson Jones (who's scheduled to visit during the season). Those two are HUGGGGGGGE

    I think this kid took the spot they were considering Chantz for. No room at the in for the Buck position

    Those two will fill out eventually but Grantham doesn't seem to care as much about size on the outside. Neither of our starters last season weighed 260. Bogle and Summerall could both get PT at OLB this season but only need to bulk up to about 245 to play buck in 2020.

    Not sure how big he'll be when he gets to campus but Dexter is a DT from day one and will play early.

    As
    Mullen gets recruiting under control, I hope it’s that kids better commit while they have an offer. Move on an fill the class with someone who wants to be here.

    Those guys are so athletic, I look forward to see where they end up. There’s no way to predict physical development very accurately but it’s a good problem to have. They will play somewhere I guess.

    Yea but don't just sign a guy just because "he wants to be here" quicker than the next guy. You gotta do your due dilligence as a student athlete. Some make their decisions quicker than others.

    True but if you snooze you lose sometimes when a comparable player takes your spot.
