"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." ~ Emerson
And another thing about the JUCO's you mentioned as being good successes earlier, they were both BIG TIME WR's. Offense is much different. There have been guys at other schools who have been JUCO's and be on the DL that have contributed BIG TIME, one that comes to mind right away is Nick Fairley. Not saying this kid is NF, just saying that it is possible. And having 3 to play 2 is also a big bonus. If need be, he can redshirt and not waste that one year adjusting like we've mentioned with Mathews and Johnson. So they could have had 2 years to contribute and not just their senior years
As a MSU fan...this guy is a good one. We really like him, but at this point it doesn't look like we're going to be able to take a JUCO DT...if y'all end up with him, you'll end up with a good player.
Pernell McPhee is another JUCO DL that did well and is now doing well in the NFL. Stinks we missed out on him. We were right there for awhile.
there is no sure thing in recruiting JUCO's but recruiting JUCO DL's is about as close as your going to get to a sure thing.
