Really like Beaver’s progression – has worked had and added offers consistently, and if he had played out the process longer I think he would have gotten even more big school offers. A really nice commitment, and while it won’t get much buzz because he’s a lineman, it’s a notable one.June 25, 2018 at 3:20 pm #60905
I like this pick up. Only a 3* at this time but has the size, wing span and feet to be a real player.
IMO we need at least 4 more OL in this class. We’ve done well lately with some JUCO’s to back fill the spots. We are starting to get to the numbers needed. Counting the incoming class we are up to 14 OL. Another couple good recruiting classes will make it a full squad. Most P5 schools are in the 17+ range in number of OL Schollie players.
Losing the top 2 OL in the state (Wright and Nester) this year hurts. Both look like they may go to tOSU. These are the #1 and #10 OL in the country. Both have been recruited and offered long ago. Any chance of flipping either of these two?
Hopefully we will land Nesters team mate, Zach Williamson. He has great size and almost top 100 position rating. Another WV kid with OL offers out there is Malone from Morgantown. Add those two (or equivalent) and a couple JC’s will bee sweet. It’s all about the beef up front. That’s where it starts.June 25, 2018 at 4:46 pm #60911
I think it will be very tough to flip either of them.June 25, 2018 at 9:27 pm #60921
Beaver has a nice offer list.June 26, 2018 at 10:50 am #60937
Butlereer. It’s all about the beef on DL and OL.June 26, 2018 at 11:05 am #60946
Our numbers have been woefully thin on both sides for years. We haven’t had an OL squad full of 5th year SR’s since the Dandy Don days. RR hardly ever recruited DL specific kids and deleted the OL numbers to move them to the other side. Bill saved his schollies for deserving walk ons. After how many years now Dana is finally getting the numbers where they should be.
