Does JBug have 2 accounts?
Nah, but I will be very interested as the year goes along. I've been a Poke fan for years and I know ONE thing for sure...recruiting is the life blood for future seasons ( especially to stay consistent) :pete: :pete::koolaid::thumbup::innocent::pistols:

BUT- Besides athletes , what do you say are priority will be for 2016? A qb, one RB, and a couple of LB'ers and CB's maybe ?

Probably RB if Carson is truly one and done. We have very good depth at WR, DT, DE, S, CB, OL, and QB.

Gundy said we are only taking 17 for 2016 as of now, correct?
Might be we promised Carson we'd try to help him be ONE and done, just guessing. Plus the Indiana transfer's scholarship would be up plus the kids we have graduate, and always an unexpected 'few' that have problems ? But 17 would be a great number if ALL work out, stay the course and help us build.

Yeah, he said 17. I expect Ogbah to be gone and hopefully Carson does well enough (and the team does well enough) that he will want to leave, I'm also assuming we will have another player that is lost for one of a long list of reason. So I believe like @TexanCowboy said that 20 is reasonable.

Alright I was looking at the numbers for each position group and I came up with what I thought we would take in each position group. This will just be justed based on the seniors leaving as we don't know if any other players are for sure leaving.

QB- 1 ( We are losing 2 seniors, but JW has a chance of getting a medical hardship and coming back)

OL- 4 (Gundy said this yesterday in the press conference and that they should all be high school kids)

WR-2 or 3 (We are losing 2 seniors here and I don't see anyone declaring for the draft early as of right now.)

RB- 1 or 2 (We have no seniors here)

TE/FB- 1 (We will be losing Jeremy Seaton but I think Blake Jarwin will get his scholarship and I think we take someone to be that true FB type, E.g. Nic Roller, as in the 2014 class we took Jordan Fraiser to be a true TE)

DE- 2 or 3 (We lose 2 seniors here)

DT- 1 or 2 (We have no seniors here and took 3 in the last class)

LB- 2 or 3 (We have 2 seniors here)

CB- 2 or 3 (We have 3 seniors here)

S- 1 (We may not take one in the 2016 class. We have no seniors here and took 3 in the last class)

Specialist- 1 (We have no seniors here but may take a kicker to get ready to replace Ben Grogan)
