    is it an official visit? Someone posted they can't officially visit until their grades are in place?

    I haven’t looked. So we are going to be young next year relying on FR ?

    Why feeling down on RB? We essentially just got a 5* RB in Lorenzo Lingard who may very well be eligible to play this year. Cant discount the value the portal brings.

    Even if he can't play next year, would we be expecting a true freshman RB to come in and be the guy right away? I don't think so. I think we'll see a lot of Pierce, Davis, and Clement next year and possibly Wright if he can work his way into rotation.

    We're probably losing 6 DBs after next season - Wilson, McWilliams, Davis, Stiner, Stewart and Lenton. That leaves only 4 DBs on the roster without this year's signees - Dean, Elam, Kimbrough and Hill. We'll need a bunch of these signees to be ready to play as true sophs/RS freshmen in 2021.

    Thank you. It is a feat to pull such a great class. I have noticed teams with overall good classes being short DBs. Maybe one of these guys is the next Vernon Harvin?

    Should be. 247 only lists OV so it would be good news.

    Manuel is a 3*.

    AND ... the visitor is a 5* DE. (according to Blake Alderman's tweet)

    Manuel is a 4 star with 5 star talent. He was just about that when he committed way back but I think the grades thing made him fall off the rating radar. We want him. He will be a stud. Trust me.

    I'm not questioning whether or not we want him. The original question was "is there another 5* kid visiting this weekend". RPM said "yes, Manuel".

    I'm just saying that is not the 5* kid visiting this weekend.
    1. Manuel is a 3* player
    2. The 5* player visiting is a DE

    Personally, I don't think we need Manuel. I'd much rather have another DL or OL. We have a few possession receivers on the roster and committed and really don't need another.

    Must be in a later class? Burch is the only one unsigned and hadn’t heard a thing linking us to him

    Who could it be other than Smalls or Burch? I don't see any other 5* DEs that aren't already signed with someone. Any thoughts, guesses, wild stabs in the dark?
