    Considering our 2020 roster has only Poplawski (junior) and Russell (junior) at the position along with whatever true freshmen we sign, a JUCO would make a lot of sense at TE.

    I was thinking a grad transfer might be more likely due to class balance, though.

    Did Poplawski RS last year? He's still listed as a Sophomore on the 2019 roster, even though he played as a true freshman. If he RS, that would put him and Russell as Juniors in 2020 with no Seniors at the position, right?

    Correct. iirc, Poplawski got hurt during fall camp last year and didn't play.

    It still makes sense to bring in a JUCO that would be considered a Soph in 2020, though.

    Not a lot of those. Most are going to be December transfers with 2 years of eligibility. That's fine for the future as long as we recruit enough HS prospects the next few years to fill the pipeline so we can absorb 3 players graduating after 2021. Most important thing for the 2020 season is to make sure we don't go into it at risk of an injury making the position a liability due to a lack of depth. Class balance is always a secondary concern to the need to win now.

    And it's not a close second. Winning now is the bump we will need.

    Stillwell is potentially a summer transfer (pure conjecture on my part). He played QB in high school and I believe he was a full qualifier from the sounds of it.

    Seems like it would take a lot for him to leave Texas.

    Really? I feel like his comments were almost the opposite.

    Reading it again, I would say the comments were pretty even-keeled. I think the TCU offer will be hard for him to turn down, but hopefully I am wrong.

    Who knows, but CU is a really good situation for a young TE. Lots of playing time available and good coaching.

    I didnt realize his TCU offer just came in yesterday. And unless TT can bring him in this Summer it is a TCU/CU battle

    He is badly needed for sure. It appears TCU is pretty light at TE as well.

    The way it came across to me is TCU is too close to home for his taste.

    I guess we'll see. You obviously have a better read, but that interview seemed pretty benign overall in terms of trying to guess where he ends up.

    Does taking Stillwell affect our ability to take both Fauria and Kole Taylor in this class? If so I’m out I think.

    I doubt it. He’d be coming in as a junior, whereas the other two would be true freshmen.

    No.

    The TE depth chart is BAD.

    Yeah but when a recruit says “everything about x program is cool and all, buuuut...” I feel like he’s just paying lip service. We’ll see

    I think he's less concerned about the distance than having a real TE coach, and is impressed with Pupunu.

    Sounds to me like he wants to be a Buff and is very interested in playing for Pupunu. The hesitancy is that while he wants to leave the comment about a place his parents are comfortable with says they might be pushing him to stay closer to home.

    We should know soon.

    Basically an unproven Poplawski and Brady Russell.
