I think we've gotten to that point fortunately. That's not to say we won't stock up at a certain position if the right guys want to come here but I think the need to do total position overhauls is done.

I think its going to depend on what happens with Rush once he gets on campus and also if Jamison gets into school. I would think attrition of some current guys is possible too.

This is our projected WR corp as of today:

Seniors: Samuel, Googer
Juniors: Edwards, Washington, Dawkins, Jamison
Sophomores: Davis, S. Smith, O. Smith, Terrell
Freshmen: Johnson, Vann, Rush

Only WR that I think might leave would be Jerad Washington as he hasn't seen the field since he's been here not knocking the kid just stating facts.

Don't be surprised if we give up a scholarship for a solid K, if we can find one.

I'm still pulling for Parker White, even though we are bringing the grad transfer in.

Having said that, you need to bring in a good K and/or P every 2-3 years IMO. So if you don't do it in 2019 class you are forced to in the 2020 class.

Because HS kickers kick off of tees many staffs tend to use their scholarship on a kicker who walks on and proves he can do it on the college level, that's how I see us going about it.

Who was the last kicker we gave a scholarship to out of hs that made it here?

QB are a lot more valuable than kickers. We donít have the depth across the board to waste a scholarship on any kicker at this point.

Look at it this way..... had we been a solid kicking team, we probably average 3 more points a game and Roper still likely has his job.

White improved over the course of the season and some of the misses were on the snapper/holder connection not on him. I think we'll have a pretty solid kicking game next year. Keep in mind he finished around 50% after starting his season 1-7.

Nobody said special teams players weren't important we could offer a kicker and he could shit the bed and then everyone will bitch about how we offered them out of the 25,000 students that walk on the campus should be able to kick a field goal.
