I haven't seen anything about only 2 OL spots left. However, looking at the scholarship distribution, we have a significantly higher need right now for Guards than we do for Tackles. Obviously, guys can shift on the OL, but just by the way it looks, I would think the premium is on OG's at the moment.

http://gamecockcereal.com/static-pag...ship-breakdown

We have 2 upperclassmen starting Tackles (Camper and Daley.) Young will graduate as well. Then we'll have about 10 on the roster for the following year (as of right now.) Most of them will be Jr's or Soph's.

We have 2 upperclassmen starting Guards, 1 will graduate this year and 1 may end up being drafted early (Bailey and Stanley.) After that, it's really thin at Guard, and we'll most likely move guys from Tackle to the Guard position.

We'll have a total of about 12-14 returning OL next year (also depending on Stanley and any transfers) and we have 3 OL commits now, which would take us to somewhere b/w 15-17 total OL for next year. I really don't see the risk of taking 2 more OL at all. We would end up with 17-19 OL on the roster by adding 2 more OL this cycle. IMO, you need at least 15 scholarship OL at a minimum for D1. Muschamp knows all too well what can happen to a team and a position group when the injury bug snake bites. He had that one year when he had multiple OL starting who were not scholarship players at florida.

Furthermore, we're only at 82 scholarships right now (sure, we'll give out 3 more in camp though.) We'll have 15 Sr's graduate, then 7-10 early departures/transfers...the numbers always work out.

Jakai Moore is one of the most underrated Guards and OL in this recruiting cycle. He is a people mover. McClendon is already fairly highly rated, and he's family to our OC. Looking at the numbers now, I don't see why we would turn either down. I don't want to ever see our roster with fewer than 15 scholarship OL, and hopefully the majority should not be underclassmen. Bringing in 4-5 OL every year is a good/smart thing, knowing that at least 1 will probably depart early before graduation.

I have heard he's got both. The key, from what I was told, is what happens in the seconday...specifically w Mccollough.

We have 16 + 2 (kicker & Belk). Add 2 OL & 3-4 DBs ...looking ar 23-24. Leave 1 open for potentially landing Crouch or get Sorrells & make room if Crouch wants in...I go w option B

If for some reason we only get 3 DB’s, that would appear to open the door for 2 OL, Sorrell’s and save the final space.
