Back to the Aggies

Post by JFW_AGGIES » January 1st, 2019, 10:18 am

With players leaving early how does that effect our schollie situation, or does it? With Bright being a converted WR and Thompson leaving I think we need a JC RB now. Everyone else is unproven at this point. We also need 2 JC DBs. So that leaves us with 5 schollie. We also need at least 1 JC WR. And 1 HS WR. What positions do we use on the last 3 schollies?LB,DE and HS S?

They’re kicking the tires on all jc rbs, wrs, and dbs. Gary is going to have to be creative to get us back up to 85 scholarships soon.

We are going to take 2 JuCo WRs, maybe 3, if not it will absolutely be 2 and a high school kid. Busta is correct, they are looking at JuCo RBs and DBs as well. BUT there are only 8 or 9 spots left and there are several holes to fill. We are going to be well below the 85 scholarship limit. With there only being 14 scholarship seniors on the 2019 team, expect to see several summer "push forward" signings.

That is one helluva wish list! I'm hoping you'll see us flip Hunter Hill from Washington State. Nomura will end up at USC. I do think you will be happy with the size of the JuCo WRs we are currently talking to.

You are soooo good with solid information. :notworthy: I think you should have your own forum. It would be the most visited forum on the board. :notworthy:

Hint, Hint.

Good to hear that we are speaking to Reggie. If we are signing 3 receivers I’d love to see us sign Reggie and Pierce and then a hs receiver like Carter.

Some of the FL kids we're looking at look pretty good. I also like the RB from Cali he's got a build very similar to Turbin.

I believe we can only sign 25 in any given class.

How do missionary guys like Sterzer work? Do they count the year they sign it the year they come home?

It shouldn't be hard to get skilled offensive recruits to come in once they see Love.


I can see how these decisions might seem overwhelming for some posters, football is complex. It can seem like a single decision doesn't matter because there are too many variables......That wasn't the case with Wake Forest

I think you’ll see the qb from Utah county commit here. Btw I think that kid has the it factor. Also can’t spell his name but I’d bet this guy will sign here as well.

Tri cities is similar in some ways to here I would say geographically speaking.

I don't know how much it's grown or not, but that Washington State kid would probably like it here a lot if he jives with our coaches.

Cooper Legas. Kid has won state in wrestling, football and I believe it’s javelin.

I'd be shocked if Legas actually commits to us. His family are huge cougar fans. His dad actually posts on CB. His brother is also going to the Y, I'd imagine he'd WO there vs a schollie from us.

Don't be so sure, I have it on very good authority that Legas and fellow Orem Tiger Hunter Hill are taking their offers from the Aggies very seriously.

Pierce looked good and fast! The other two JC WR didn’t stand out much to me on tape, but have good size and would fill a need.

A couple of other Utah guys to watch are Remedy Akoteu and Caden Hilborn. I know Remedy wanted to visit here but was favoring Boise. Although Gary could change things there. He did not commit in the early period and i think he may have wanted to see who the coaches would be here.

I completely agree. After watching his highlights, a few characteristics really standout.

1. He's fast AND agile - not just a sprinter; weaves through defenders and appears to run decent routes as he was able to get open against zone schemes as well as man coverage.
2. If you are going to play press coverage against a WR that is four steps faster than anyone on your defense, you probably should jam him coming off the line of scrimmage. Sheesh.
