Can't have enough big uglies for the line. You still win these games in the trenches. If a QB has time, he can burn any defense. If a QB doesn't have time, even a Heisman Trophy winner will look average.

Blinn, by way of McNeese State, OL Beau Morris commits. Getting big up front.

3 years of eligibility. All of the Morris OL recruits have officially been put on notice. Get bigger or step aside.

6'5" and somewhere between 270 and 290, depending on which report you read.
Make it 3 JUCO linemen. Somewhere BUS is smiling.

There is exactly 1 Chad Morris Offensive Lineman recruit that has been on the roster 3 years. Bryce Wilds who is 6-6, 300 and started most of the year which is significantly bigger than the 2 Offensive Tackle JUCOs who are reportedly 275 and 280 despite graduating from high school two years ago. The other was a medical retirement and a June Jones holdover recruit whose scholarship was honored and was shown the door.

The 2016 and 2017 Offensive linemen are going to be fine-1 started as a true freshman-several played on the best Offense in SMU History. Huhn and Ali after redshirt years are in the same weight range as the JUCOs after 1 year and might just be bigger since those were preseason weights. Beau Morris was actually listed at 267 last year on Blinn roster. Livingston was listed at 270 on Navarro roster. Ali, Huhn and Wilds were all heavier or equal to those listed weights coming into 2017 season.

That's the point-that's why Offensive Linemen need 2-3 years to develop. Wilds wasn't ready when they played him as a redshirt freshman-this year as a redshirt sophomore his name rarely came up and he showed significant improvement. All these guys have a high ceiling and they've got college experience and 3-4 years to develop. On the other hand, we are signing kids with 0 offers, a kid that was a DE in high school and a Mcneese St. throwback. That's what a redshirt year is for-because none of these guys were ready out of high school-that's not a huge surprise.

Yeah I don’t know why everyone is hating on Chads recruits. Next year is the year that his recruiting should really show. That first class doesn’t have many defensive recruits still around. This year they will all be much bigger and more experienced. We have a lot of upperclassmen on the roster compared to usual (mostly juniors).

Agree. This coming season and the year after that will be the test, because the guys Chad recruited will all be in at least their 2nd year and some in their 4th or 5th years in the program. Not a lot of G5 programs are able to recruit 3 year players who move on to the NFL, so teams with rosters full of JRs and SRs are usually pretty competitive.
