It's now less than two weeks until the first signing date (December 19) for football. We have an impressive group verbally committed. I'm excited about Tennessee running back Xavier Myers and hopeful that our tailback tradition will continue. It will also be interesting to see who plans on arriving for the 2nd semester and spring practice. Those players will have the best chance to contribute right away.

Only place I think we need immediate help is at WR, but I wouldn't mind a nice surprise or 2 to shore up our OL and DE (edge rusher type) positions. Oh, and placekicker ... that was pretty bad even as transition years go. Our last 2 guys started out pretty mediocre and turned out good (Ausieker followed by Slattery). So might just need time, but this was bad year for both our placekickers.

I think I read that Jeremiah Jordan from Madison was planning on graduating in December and enrolling for second semester. There's one.

Watched his HUDL .Man the kid can hit. Boogers were flyin. He played the Sam in their 4-3 but I could see him coming off the edge for sure.

Per your suggestion I watched his HUDL. I can't say I saw any boogers flyin'. At one point I thought I saw some saliva, runny snot or other non-specified bodily fluid in the air after a particularly good hit but I would need to put it up on a large high def screen instead of my laptop to properly identify. Perhaps I can make time over the holidays to do that.


Regardless a key attribute you look for with any defensive player is the desire to hit. This kid passes the eye test on that one.

Yeah, check out the second play. He does have more of an edge rusher build.
