    Willis plays linebacker, so I certainly hope he's not the next Eric Murray.

    Isn't Willis a LB and Murray was a CB though? Maybe the next Devodre Campbell?

    I hope he is as good as Murray, but that's like saying I hope Willis is the next Maroney. I'm guessing he is referring to Murray being under the radar, but Willis had a lot more recruiting interest than Murray.

Look at a kid that's not even listed like Cam Wiley though: he's 6'2 195 has some very good verified 40 times and is already really cut up physically. According to Ryan Burns, a team that's preparing for the college football playoff tried to get in on him late. He might be the RB that hits the hole and takes it to the house that we haven't had since Maroney...or it's possible he switches positions.
    I hope that you are right, but I don't see it.

    Clemson tried to flip D’Vion Harris just before signing day. Marcus West was extremely excited about him and said something to the effect of it’s just a matter of time before he’s leading the B1G in sacks.

    I put Williamson but only because I am skeptical of our QB recruits and he may never end up here. I would love to see Clark shine from day 1.

    What do you mean by the “...skeptical of our QB recruits and he may never end up here”. Are there rumors Clark or Kramer aren’t going to enroll?

    Lol. Well make that one more for
    Gordon then.

    Fleck did spend an inordinate amount of time talking about him in his signing day presser.

    Iím assuming his dude status, coupled with our need for additional LBers after the losses of Cashman, Huff, and Martin (?) means he is likely a candidate to play snaps next season.

    The safety we need, but haven't signed yet.
    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.

    Okay. If you hold a gun to my head and had five seconds to spit out a name, I'd say Jacob Clark although I really like the whole defensive recruits.

    You are only as good as your o-line. No love for Guedet?

    J.J. Guedet is 6í7Ē and 307. All State Honors. Lists offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Illinois. Committed in early March, so limits number of offers, put on a lot of size over last year. Played both ways.

    Rivals 5.7 rating puts him behind only Nubin and Clark (both 5.8). 247 composite ranking puts him as sixth best in Minnesota class, assuming Kristian Williams commmits.

    Edgy Tim, the long time Illinois recruiting guy, puts him as 4th best recruit in IL, just ahead of Nubin.

    Our only o-line recruit for 2019, so far. Sounds like the St. Croix Falls recruit, Tyler Cooper, will be delayed until 2020. (Note that Ryan Burns says staff loves the upside on Cooper.)

    Callahan earned some oline respect with what he did this year, and at WMU. Illinois is his home base, so if this is the Illinois lineman he liked, speaks highly of Guedet.

    Nubin has some size...Clemmons plays physical...both may be options.

    But, yes, would love a grad transfer or late juco safety added to roster.

    Wiley reminds me a little of John Clay.

    The comments on Harris by West were very encouraging and eye opening. Harris has some very nice offers listed (Florida, Michigan, Kentucky, Purdue, Utah, Arizona, Illinois, Louisville). Will be fun to watch.

    The other St Louis dline recruit, Anderson, reported even better offers...ND, TCU, Ark, Duke, Ames, KU,KSU, KY, Sparty, Neb, PU, RU, uVA, soCar...will be fun to watch.
