+1. Everything we're going on is potential with the OL outside of Warford and Smith who are stalwarts down there. Miller showed us some things, but even he is projected mainly on potential
I think Miller is for real. A 4 star player played alot as a freshman. He's got all SEC potential. So I think we've got 3 solid guys. The other two guys whoever they end up being are gonna have to step up.
A top 50 recruit, do you mean in the top 50 at their position??? Other than Tim Couch top QB in the country and Micah #9 recruit in the country we haven't landed a top 50 player that I can think off. D Miller was a top 20 OT and IMO he was the best OT on the team during the 11 season. It would be great if this kid and Boynton could show up early in Jan. This kids frame is so long his strength is what's holding his quickness back. I've witnessed plenty of kids similar to Day improve a ton in that aspect once they start to lift with people who know how to train for explosive strength. This kid would benefit alot from a Westside Barbell Power-lifting/sports specific type routine, where explosive strength training is done once a week for upper body and lower body known as "Speed Day", speed workouts take place 72 hours after the "Max effort" workout.
As far saying he looks slow at DE in his HL video, how many 6'8 280# DE's have you really saw look quick? I would be willing to bet if Hunter Bivin were to be playing against same comp as this kid he wouldn't look any better at DE... Long De's usually make good OT, OT's (which this kid is) usually don't make good DE's. This prospect isn't a DE, especially a 1 gap 7 technique De like his HS coach was using him in. If his HS coach were to put him in a 4/5 technique he would look alot better on his video... I trust Summers and Joker if they think this Day is legit, then I do. I think his feet look fine in the videos i've saw. Give alittle credit to the teams he was facing when on defense, South Carolina ball is just alittle better than KY ball... It's not like it's SD and we took a player some call a reach, Joker and Summers have to like him alot or they wouldn't have offered this early. We all know Joey has recently done well at camps and he's a solid 3 star but they don't like him as a OT... Maybe now they will recruit him as a OG, I do think he would be a fine OG, he's strong and has the size right now, heck allow him to start out at OT and see what happens... I would like to see us land 4 O-lineman anyways. Sorry for bad spelling by screen is broke again...
and in the lifting and adding strength and GOOD weight, I don't think there's too many better in the business than Rock. In Rock I trust
I like this new and improved todd.
Any chance we go JUCO for the next offensive lineman in this class? I mean and try to go after a top JUCO lineman. Anybody got any clue who those guys are?

It doesn't always tell the tale, but the Rivals database shows that Austin Douglas from NW Miss CC has interest in us. This kid is projected at center which could possibly be a help since we just lost Simpson and Smith will graduate this year.
Like I said, I did a search and that's all that came up; it doesn't mean that we don't have others on our radar.
Thanks dotson, i've been using spell check alot more, now people aren't calling me stupid as much thus i'm not mad all the time...
All jokes aside I just hope these next 8 or 9 prospects Joker gets are all solid 3 stars or better and I hate using the star system to describe the type of player i'm talking about... If Joker could find away to land Riles, Drennon, Timmons, Thomas, A TE, ILB, "X" type WR or two and another DT I would be pumped...
Yes sir i would be pumped with that as well.....come on coaching staff get us some of these stud program changers....we are so past dew for this to happen for us
I like the potential of some of the kids we have landed but I really hope the next 8 or 9 are all Bell, Hyde types. I have no doubt those two will be studs. It would really suck if we couldn't land some big time playmakers/LB. At this point those two positions are needing the most help... Come on Joker please get it done...
Agreed, I have a feeling the best is yet to come. Most of the players on their board left are guys with pretty good offers. As I was saying before, I think Thomas and Timmons will be the next two commitments, and with even a 6-6 type season, I think Phillips will finish recruiting strong.
6-6 could be huge for this program. Everybody know the talent is young and we'll only get better for the next 4-5 years after this year.
How does anyone know if they are a project or freshmen ALL-SEC? I do not get it. Highligt tapes of an OL are usually hard to find and poor quality. Plus, they have not had collegiate coaching. I just do not get all of these assumptions.
It's also been my experience in the past that they guys we were thinking might play earlier and the ones that actually do are often different people.

Agreed. I think I will trust Mike Summers.
Your right Jeff, the primary reason I ever say this or that about a prospect is due to his numbers, size and what others I trust have said... Sometimes though those numbers aren't 100% correct or the kid doesn't have a good work ethic and it doesn't work out... Two prospects I am confident in though is Hyde and Bell. When comparing those kids against other SEC commits they stack up just as good or better in areas. I really think our D-line is going to be so good that average LB's will suffice. Atleast I hope so, not saying any are average LB's all i'm saying is our D-line should be very good. I just hope some of these under the radar O-lineman can get it done, no doubt the frame and athleticism looks good... GO CATS!!!
