    Agree, but if you get 4 in the 2017 class, how many would you expect in 2018? I would say just 1 would be fine with up to 2. At least 1 of the 4 would REDSHIRT even in a talented group like this.

    Ya there is no way we grayshirt any of these guys. Redshirt perhaps.

    No you play a couple early and redshirt the other two. Four WRs in one class is not excessive.

    I would say JJ is the most likely Redshirt candidate due to his injuries, but I believe Laviska is every bit in the mix for early playing time, as would Bell and obviously Nixon if they were able to reel them in.

    Especially when your base offensive formations are going to include 3 and 4 WRs.

    If we take 4 starting with 2017 class and come 2021 season you would have: 2-RS Seniors, 2-True Seniors, 2-RS Juniors, 2-Junior, 2-RS Soph 2-Soph 2-RS Frosh 2-Frosh 2-Redshirts (no play) You can't have 18 WRs when only 4-5 play. Most WRs you should have is about 12-14. 4 is excessive if you do it more than 2 years in a row.

    That's not taking into consideration attrition over that time period, and I don't think anybody is saying we have to take 4 WRs every class; just that taking 4 in this class is not excessive. I think the current talent level at the position also effects this... Why would we pass on the chance to recruit over some of the players we currently have that are struggling to see the field as 2nd or 3rd year players?

    No attrition over a five year period will never happen. Take three at a minimum every class. What is the freak out here?

    I have said you don't turn down elite talent and all 4 of these WRs are elite talent. Yes, attrition will happen especially for a couple seniors that are tired of the grind and not playing or want a chance to start elsewhere. 4 is not excessive in this class. And I don't see all 4 of last year as WRs. I see Julmisse playing more at RB.

    There is no freak out. Just saying you shouldn't take 3-4 every class. That is 15-20 schollies in a 5 year period. There are only 85 schollies. Even with a 20% attrition rate, you still have 12-16 guys for 4.5 spots. OL doesn't have 15-20 schollie guys. Balance in recruiting numbers is needed. That's it.

    Back to topic on hand, K.D. Nixon is a rare talent, you take him regardless!

    I believe TTU has 22 WRs on their 2016 roster... I can't find how many are S vs WO, but having 12-16 scholarship guys at a position that starts 4 most of the time, seems about right when you consider at least 3 will be RSing.

    OL doesn't have 15 to 16 schollie guys? Really? Who are you, Dan Hawkins?

    They don't end up with that amount it seems. Seems like 12-14. Just look at numbers.

    Well, your assumption is wrong or based on bad data. For instance, 12 is the bare minimum you would want to go into the season with - hell, that's barely enough to fill out a 2 deep without injury.
    But let's actually look at the current numbers to see if you are on point. A quick look at our current roster shows that we currently have 14 OL players on schollie. That's not counting the incoming frosh and greyshirts, of which we have 3, I think. I will let you do the math.

    So that point is not something to rely on. Carry on.

    I said 15-20. They are at the low end of that. 14 plus 2 incoming. Greyshirt does not count. Roberts will be at DL. I didn't say the OL DOESN'T need 15-20. Don't come at me bro!

    Bro, you either can't read what you wrote, or your brain has misfired from attempting to find some logic to what you are saying. Anyways, best of luck with your argument. Maybe it would make more sense on your blog?

    The staff will keep plugging away at a Dixon or anyone else who are absolute studs at the WR position. You don't just stop recruiting the position because you hit a supposed number. Will be interesting to see if we actually have any traction with Dixon or not.

    You peanut butter and jelly bro? My blog is about to get a bigger voice/eye due to my writing joining someone else. Sorry I can't podcast and blog for pennies like your "writer" Elite friends.

    You have to think Shenault will be a pretty solid influence to at least get him to visit and seriously consider CU

    Your manufactured #BuffsTwitterElite thing seems forced and a little tired.

    Seems like kind of a silly debate to me. It's pretty clear we are going to no to a more pass happy offense. If you do that, you better have a lot of receivers. Taking four in any given year isn't a big problem. Taking four every year is excessive. With regard to this year, we are looking at four 4* receivers. You don't pass that up.
    It's entirely possible that by 2017, we are regularly playing 6 different receivers per game. Having 12-15 on the roster should not be problematic.
    The consequence will be fewer fullbacks and tight ends overall. There's also a good possiblbility that at least one or two of those WRs get converted to TEs. Particularly the ones 6'3" and taller.

    Considering our offense, let's look at the Texas Tech comps on the number of WRs signed for the past 4 classes.

    2013: 5
    2014: 7
    2015: 6
    2016: 5

    The above does not include anyone listed as an ATH by Rivals, just the WRs.

    Take the most playmakers we can get but we still need some dlinemen, linemen, and linebackers. Big class so we got numbers.

    The fact that your blog is about to get a bigger eye is quite an accomplishment.

    Anyways, yea, more WR please.

    Sounds good to me if they are all this good. You can play some of them at CB or Safety.

    I would actually say that's excessive. There's a reason Tech has problems on defense. Looking at that list, I'd say they probably have depth issues on defense.
