NINE offensive lineman so far. Nice.

Nice event with Dykes and everyone this afternoon.

Looking at the roster churn, position by position... rankings are based on recruiting sites and offers...

DE: Ahu is #1, Mastrov #3. Lose Scott and Neals (#7 and 8). Upgrade in rankings, and we have 8, 5 of which are quality recruits, so numbers are right.

DT: Levelson is #2, lose #3, 4, 6, and 11. We have numbers here, but only 3 quality recruits; I would expect attrition and we need to add a transfer.

LB: Lose #3, gain none. Only three quality recruits (not counting Jones yet until move is official). We need a transfer.

CB: We gain the third best on the roster (Massey, behind Stephens and Westfall), and lose #4, 5, 6, 7. Upgraded and now have 3 quality recruits, but we clearly need a transfer here to meet adequate roster numbers and provide competition.

S: Gain #5, lose #4, 8, and 10. #2 and #7 could move to LB. 8 with 4 highly rated recruits if nobody changes positions. If someone moves, we need a transfer here.

OL: Gain #5,7,8,10,11,13,15. Lose 19 and 20. We have 18 on the roster. Definite upgrade and we now have 14 quality recruits at what used to be our weakest recruiting position.

QB: 0 in, 0 out. 3 quality recruits. All good.

RB: 0 in, lose #4 and 5. 3 quality recruits, but need to add a transfer for experience and numbers.

TE: 0 in, lose #2. We have 4 and look set with quality.

WR: Gain #2 and 3, lose #1, 5, and 11. Have 9, with 7 high recruits. We are fine here.

Overall, I would say a very successful recruiting class in terms of upgrading the roster. To really close gaps for next season, we need transfers at DT, CB, LB and/or S, RB, K, and P.

Updated for the first two transfers:

Williams at DT is our top rated DT now. We have 4 quality recruits at the position and no longer need a transfer.

DeArman at S is tied at #3, basically the same level as Donald Clay from a recruiting standpoint. This gives us 5 highly recruited safety. We no longer need a transfer, and I would fully expect one or probably two players to move to that Star LB position.

Chris Naggar - P - Texas. Hopefully this works out, his stats from UT this year are kind of similar to Sackville, honestly. May have kicked on a shorter field, though.

Transfer needs remaining (in order of priority): K, CB, LB, RB

I thought all fields were the same size.

Is DeArman eligible this year, and does that matter

Punting it 39 yards from the 50 is a much different result than punting 39 yards from your own 10.

filing for an appeal. Seems to be optimism.
