    Rich,

     

    Who was Howard?  I like our OL recruits, and I think Crawford is going to be a player.

    Jarrod Howard Ath from Ore. Of the 3 new recruits Mitchell seems the most promising. Lots of video on hudl. A tough, quick inside DT. May be a yr away.
    Bucklin solid but TE not a priority. Likewise Donahue love his sizr but a good way away from 2 deep. Love Crawford at FB. Ripanti will be a.real force at LB. Clear we dont need anymore RBs for a couple of yrs.lol Should make some happy methinks. Overall a very good class. Altho not comparable ,on paper, to Gate.

    Still could be room for one or two more to join this class.  Except for RB, where we have depth, most everything is covered.  Would have liked to see another big DL.

    Some time ago, someone posted a Brown & White article that stated the coaches rate the recruits 1,2,3,4,5 with 1 being a projected Player of the Year in the PL and 2 being a projected all-league player. I fully understand that any projection is a crap shoot and that there are a lot of players who both over-achieve and under-achieve. I also know that reportedly, the coaches had 50 athletes in lat year’s class that graded as a 1 or 2.
    I’d like to do our own list of projected 1s and 2s starting with the fall sports. Perhaps we may be able to compare the # with the coaches and then look back 4 years from now and see how we did.
    I see Morgan Lowe-Volleyball as a potential 1
    Danny Gonzalez-Soccer
    I predict 10 football players
    Caslow, Crawford,Duffy,Harvey, Leaks, Pandy, Short, Smith, Stubbs and possibly Tennant.
    Just one man’s opinion.

    According to the talk tonight at the football banquet, the kicker coming from FL has the best leg ever recruited here. Whether he’ll be able to make the transition will remain to be seen, but tremendous potential. The QB competition will be wide open and the Brown & White game on April 20 will begin the auditions.

    Based on the video I saw, that is no exaggeration about Pandy, 50 yard FGs in HS is pretty impressive.  Kickoffs were deep with decent hang time.  We can all remember a few games in recent history where kicking game cost us the win.

    Not only that, but having a weapon like that also effects strategy.  Had we had a reliable, long range kicker two years ago, we could have gone for 3 FGs in first half of the NDSU playoff game. Make those and it effects not only the strategy/field position of the game, but the emotional aspect as well.  Must keep in mind that what’s going on between the kicker’s ears is just as important as the strength of his leg.
