    By my math, we're sitting at 23 commits for this class. That leaves two spots left. I'd like to think we're in on Jacobs and Rippy, and that we'll call it good. Any thoughts on how we're approaching these last two spots?

    Also, if we cannot get players of the Jacobs/Rippy caliber, do we get somebody else or bank the scholies until next year? Are there any positions of need left?

    Only if we could flip Walker Williams or JCF or similar caliber athlete.

    If we could only have one more commit, I want it to be Jacobs.

    We are going to lose a few guys who are not making the grades.

    I think we sign 5 more.

    Rippy
    Jacobs
    OL
    OL

    If it can only be two, I would want 2 of Rippy, Jacobs, and Tillman (the 4.3 40 kid out of Louisiana). If Rippy is definitely off the table, I'd add Folasa to replace the the hole left by Asiata's departure. If we do oversign, I'd love to have all 4. I don't think we're going to flip anyone at this point though.

    Replace Asiata? What are you talking about?

    EDIT: Just figured it out. Crap! Yes Folasa would be a good addition to the G spot. Too late to beg Kozan with automatic playing time?

    I am not sure taking on Folasa as a big grade risk is leaving the program is the best course of action. He is not worth the risk.

    I've only heard that embree would take 27 or 28, not 25 so we have 4-5 left to take and maybe oversign?

    Jacobs and Hobbs. Best players available at positions of need.

    I would rank the best players available and take the first two that commits to CU.


    Still holding out for JCF and Alex Kozan

    Yuri Wright was a possibility. JCF and Kozan are not.

    I can see us taking 3-4 more.

    I think the staff would like another TE to compete for PT in 2012.
    Another OL for sure, maybe two.
    And a LB?

    Best guys on the board in my mind:
    Kaumatule (we take him if he wants to come)
    Jacobs/Rippy
    Tillman - need speed.
    Solomon
    Brostek the Human Enigma
    Simmons (but aren't we done at DE?)

    If I thought we had a reasonable shot at Brostek, he would be far and away my #1 choice. That kid has all-conference potential written all over him.

    As it is, I hope we can close with Kaumatule, Jacobs, and Tillman.

    0% chance of JCF and 50/50 with Hobbs
    50/50 with Kuamatule and 90% chance with Simmons
    0% chance with Kozan, Outside shot with Brostek (UDUB plan B guy) and Folasa probably does not have a committable offer yet.

    Of course I want Rippy and Jacobs to be "the two." If we have other spots available or they choose to go elsewhere, another LB, OG, TE or RB are positions that I feel still must be addressed.
