Default Re: 2018 - Xavier Thomas

Will Muschamp WILL build a dominant defense here. Getting a guy like XT to commit early would certainly help attract the remaining help we need. This years class will go a long way in certain areas to shore up a few putrid areas. Secondary was in dire need, if we hold on to what we've got this year then we've gone a long way towards addressing that area imo. We will also hopefully get a talent infusion on the DL with Webb, Johnson & hopefully Kinlaw & Sterling. Next year we need to load up with a couple of stud DL like Belk & Thomas & replenish the LB position & you will see a completely different defense going forward. We hit on several guys along the front in the 2016 class according to Muschamp so this defense may very well be ready to turn the corner in XT's first year.

LB recruiting will have to be big in 2018 imo along with a couple of stud pass rushing DE's.

We'll be better next year but getting back towards dominant is two years away, if we continue what we're going now, which would fit Belk, Thomas & others in the 2018 class pretty well from a time line perspective.

Option 1B behind Joyner? I am glad that we don't do the one QB offer at a time like in the Mangus days.

Thanks for the update ASG!


Spurrier had every chance to lock Williams up but he didn't even put in the slightest effort.

We will also have a veteran - and a very productive - Offense in 2018. Deebo and Hurst will be Seniors, Edwards, Rico, Turner, Ty'son Williams and Bentley will be Juniors, plus a nice group of RS and true Sophomores (Randrecous, OrTre, Shi, Register, etc.)

If the O is productive and the D is solid this year, just lacking a pass rusher or two, we will be a very attractive destination. X could be a major contributor on a big winner from Day One.

I can't remember the last recruit we went after from as far away as Vegas....very refreshing to see that we're expanding our search to areas farther away than a 5 hour drive, even if that will always be our main focus.

Taylor rank- Washington comes to mind as a player. There have been some prospects from the left coast, there was that big time oline guy from last year or the year before we made a big push with.

Bishop Gorman is sort of the IMG Academy of the West Coast. Lots of talent in Football and Basketball. We have a new assistant coach with some connection to BG - someone can remind me who it is. Plus there is a tie-in through Snoop - his kid was a WR for BG and he was a fixture at their games. Snoop is sorta involved with the program through Keisean Nixon, who was on Snoop's youth team.

Fo rizzle.

Nice to offer, seems like a long shot on paper.

Also, I would assume it would pay dividends, also, to just be on the campus.

One more point, it is nice to see some sort of continuity in what kind of qb we are after.
