    With National Signing Day drawing ever closer I thought a quick synopsis of the class might be nice to bring everyone up to speed. I certainly don't know it all, so feel free to chime in with further info.


    Commits and Rivals Rank (# denotes already on campus)
    #QB - Nathan Peterman ****
    RB - Quenshaun Watson ***
    #RB - Alden Hill ***
    #TE - Justin Meredith ***
    WR - Jason Croom ****
    WR - Drae Bowles ****
    WR - Alton "Pig" Howard ****
    #DE - Darrington Sentimore JUCO ***
    #DE - Trent Taylor ***
    DE - LaTroy Lewis ***
    DT - Daniel McCullers JUCO ****
    DT - Danny O'Brien ****
    LB - Ortha Peters ****
    LB - Dalton Santos ***
    DB - LaDarrell McNeil ****
    DB - Daniel Gray ***
    K - George Bullock **
    ATH/RB - Davante Borque ****
    ATH/LB - Justin King ***
    #ATH/S - Cody Blanc **

    Also, I think DB Tino Thomas from the last class will be included with this one. That gives us 21 guys right now. Not sure if we'll lose any, but I've got to think this late in the game most everyone that will be told to hit the road has already been informed. Are we supposed to be signing 25 total, or are we at more or less due to other roster issues?

    Here are some of the targets expected to round out the class:

    CB - Deion Bonner ***
    DT - Korren Kirven ****
    DT - Justin Shanks ****
    DT - Tevin Bryson unrated
    WR - Demetrius Wilson JUCO ***
    WR - Cordarelle Patterson JUCO ****
    WR - Quinshad Davis ****
    LB - Ritchie Brown ****
    LB/RB - Beniquez Brown ***
    DB - Devian Shelton ****

    Also, check out Jewbacca's much more thorough analysis:

    The last time I paid attention to this, it was expected we would find a way to sign the full 25.

    Meridith isn't from a JUCO. Other than that, looks good. We should be able to sign 25.

    Dooley said in the last pressed they would most likely sign 25.

    Who are the other probable targets? I've only got 8 listed and we are looking to sign four more. I doubt we bat .500 with my list.

    Ya, that seems to be the line. I have no idea how they are going to get there, though. Didn't we have a thread about that? I think we need to shed 3 or so more roster spaces.

    The instate DT Tevin Bryson could get a last minute offer.

    I don't think Pig is on campus. He is not a mid-termer and there is still talk of other visits.
