one of Arkansas' six commitments. I think this will clear up the picture a little bit more.

Yeah, it's not like Myles Brooks tweeted a big announcement at 6. The writing has been on the wall for awhile on this one.

Brooks is going to decommitt more than likely or say he flipped his commitment to another school.

That he's "de-committing", when in all reality, we moved on weeks ago. My guess, he's JUCO bound, some say Illinois, but we didn't go by and see him in the last "visit" phase of recruiting. We got the DB's we wanted, Greg Brooks, and Devin Bush, we still would like Otey to stick with his commitment. And of course, we want Catalon very much.

2020 class needs to be LB/DB heavy.

Obviously need to get a big time RB, and another 4-5 OL.

Gotta have quality and quantity at LB/DB, though.  It's a must for this class.

I would imagine that will be just the intention. They will sacrifice a dlineman spot or two I think.  Maybe a wr spot.  But we canít pull from the needed 5 oline

Obviously that would relieve some of the urgency, but we need a solid LB haul, regardless.  We are woefully thin there.

They have eight spots left. They have six commitments. They want a QB, Catalon and Henry and/or Russell.

They want Myles, I had heard he was gonna decommit, but I guess that wasn't the case or if it was they talked him out of it. I know there have been lots of thoughts on he got dropped, but I reported a month or so ago he was gonna sign on Feb. 6. I don't think you will see them dropping a 6-2, 188 pound safety who ran an electronic 4.56 40.

As far as what will the numbers look like

We know Henry and Burks are signing so that gets them to 23. Then you have at least one safety,, maybe two, but must get one. They want to keep Brooks and appears they will, but they aren't gonna turn down Catalon if he wants to come.
A linebacker or two but there again must get one. They want to get Henry and/or Russell.
A grad QB
A running back. If Spivey sticks with Hogs then they have him, but if not then they will search for one.
If Otey sticks then they have another CB, but if by chance he didn't they might not sign a fourth. Dante Walker has a scholie if he still comes which they hope he does.
That is how it sits right now.

Glover Cook is actually a higher rated RB than Spivey on 247 in a FWIW.

Did you enter MMQB this season?  The greater good may not have the ability to get here in time if we donít bainaid this B up and get some wins next season.

Depends on who the HS kid is and how good of a bandaid. If the bandaid could bring us a couple more wins and a bowl that will help recruiting next season it would be worth it. We can't win 2 or 3 games next season and continue to roll in recruiting.

I want you to walk into the room and tell all your upcoming Seniors that you do not care about wins now but your building for 2 and 3 years down the road. Then go to your summer booster clubs and talk to all those fans who buy the tickets for next years games and tell them why you did not sign a transfer QB now because your building for 2020.   Gp tell them.

Come on lets be smart here.  Lets get us the best transfer QB we  can get to come in here to add competition and hopefully he is good enough to lead us to 6+ wins next year and build this program NOW!!!!!  If we can then next years recruiting gets much easier.  Plus the fans will believe and buy more tickets.

Sometimes you have to roll with the punches.  If a good one year grad transfer becomes available, you grab him.  If not, you get one or two of the younger dudes ready for war.

You would replace them all who have not bought in to your standards if you could. But NCAA rules will not allow it. Best you can hope is they will buy in or you  have better replacements coming in.

But lets do not give up on wins for 2019.  If you do then it would corrupt your 2020 recruiting.

Otis, Brooks hasnít officially visited yet correct? Is it possible he is a blueshirt candidate that will receive his scholarship in the fall but count to next years class?

Would also allow us to sneak another player in and have 30 player instead of 29

Again Iím not saying go 2-10 and it doesnít matter. I think you totally take KB. But I feel like now we are trying to take anyone with a pulse. To me, it only makes sense if you waste a scholarship for the future on someone who can make an impact. Is Ben Hicks clearly multiple wins better than Storey or Noland next year? We need someone at QB next year who can win 2 SEC games. That should get us to a bowl.  If itís a guy on campus, then use that scholarship on a young LB who can make a difference for multiple years. Just my take.

Clearly the coaches feel that either Storey isn't the answer at all, or he's one hit away from us being royally screwed(again). And they don't seem to feel too good about the younger guys there. In this scholarship crunch they're looking for a 1-2 year guy. That means they're pretty dang serious.

I feel as though they play 2 different positions. Brooks seems like a surefire S, whereas Otey projected more of a CB. Although he didn't play exclusively there. I think Otey is still firm to the Hogs, and it's going to take some strong convincing from other teams on his visits. But recruiting never stops, so who knows. Brooks has great frame, and he could add to that and be versatile down the line. Not too sure of his ability and bouncing back from injury, but we'll see...

Otis said earlier that he did not think our numbers will work out for all three Brooks, Catalon and Otey so we will see who is on the outs.
