I like this.

It looks like Wilty is an OT per the recruiting board. It would also be great to track the early enrollees like Staub.

What a fantastic day, yesterday. Hunter's signing allowed me to go to bed. Still have some holes to fill, but this staff is going to get it done. Excited for the next 30 days to see how the roster fills out. Damn that was fun.

The current OL players need to be open to position changes if they want to see the field. Just saying.

DL ?? was hoping Williams would hit on some. TE ? need a big bodied downfield blocker with hands.
This signing window has a few more days. Then there’s the other signing day in February. I’m guessing DL, S, TE, RB get taken care of by then.

They specifically need to be open to sitting on the bench if they want a future here because Louis is coming.
That's the thing that a lot of fans seem to be having trouble wrapping their heads around. This is not an offseason of just trying to recruit freshmen and plug some holes with transfers. The majority of the roster is being rebuilt. So some of the guys are being signed to play from our 2- or even 3-deep but are not the likely starters in 2023.

Yup. And those guys who we aren't excited about because they look like solid depth pieces on a bowl squad instead of all stars? They would be considered surefire starters or even saviors in the past. The one guy to save their position, etc.
