Sonny Dykes recruiting

Postby ponyfan37 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 5:31 pm

So what will Sonny's recruiting goals be for this cycle? I'd imagine he'll try and keep as many of the current commits as possible. And then what? Try to fill the class with some guys that lack decent offers that may hop aboard because its their best option? At this point I don't see us landing any new high quality commits for the 2018 class.

He needs to keep current commits, especially the good defensive ones. My first call would be to Tre Allison, try to get him back, then Kemon Smith. Then buddy up to Williams and leverage him to keep the offensive side of things in tact. Then need defensive Jucos, especially DTs and DBs.

Keep everybody and pick up a juco DT and DB or 2 and that's a damn great save.

And keep ponyuptempo.

Ponyuptempo needs to go the way of Lock Arms. It was all a part of Chads self promotional used car salesmen shtick. And that's coming from someone who loved the whole "tempo" thing.

I can't believe all of the tempo crap isn't already gone. Every time I see it I get physically angry now. Borderline violent.

At least the tempo stuff wasn't Aggy like the lock arms BS though. Can we publicly burn that stupid [deleted] flag? Please!

Dykes offense is up tempo. So, keep the branding. But, again, I guess you have to start from scratch with your own stuff.

Cal's Offense ran a lot more Offensive plays in 2016 than SMU in 2017

I think Coach Dykes should go after some former 3* & 4* Sr. grad DTs/DEs who have a year left to play, but have started for their schools in the past.

This may be a slow start but we will sign 5 to 10 next Wednesday. Then lets do what ntsmu says. Mine the country for some help.

Oh, I got my Masters at SMU. Not a bad intro.

Certainly appears Dykes & Co looking for grown men to contribute in the trenches right away rather than waiting 3-4-5 years for some of Chad's early commit big boys to see the field.

Adam's quotes from Dykes:

"I've been pleased with the way things have worked. I feel like we can upgrade some positions, so we needed to lose a couple commitments."

"The thing you have to keep in mind is we're probably going to add two or three graduate transfers that we've already communicated with. We have a pretty good idea that they're going to come."

Some pretty interesting names, especially @ WR & DL. Also, saw 1 dude from Cali that played for Dykes.

We should pick up Jackie Harris' son to play linebacker. Dad finished his career as a Dallas Cowboy. Son just happens to be leaving Arkansas.

Interested stat Embody...

With @SDotCash_ committing and Levon Livingston already on campus, Sonny Dykes and his staff have landed the two highest-rated commits for #SMU since 2013. Impressive stuff.
