    What does the team need from the next recruiting class?

    Should know by mid December how PL will schedule schollies. :roll:

    I can’t think of one area where we have glaring weaknesses. Overall, I think Coen has done a good job recruiting. The problem has been the coaching. If he is returning, which seems to be the case, he needs to make some changes. If he doesn’t want to change the members of his coaching staff how about changing their responsibilities? What about making Ryan the offensive coordinator? I think our offense has become too one dimensional. I would like to see less reliance on the shotgun formation and more of a commitment to establishing the run. When we do pass we need more short high percentage passes. One of the big problems during the Coen era has been the inability to sustain drives on offense which has caused our defense to spend way too much time on the field.

    QB – need to groom someone to take over for Clark. Not sure Colvin is the QB of tomorrow. He may end up as a RB. Regardless he needs someone pushing him…they way Lum pushes Clark. Great contending FCS teams have great QBs.

    RB – you can never have enough good RBs….i would hope coach commits to one good Rb ever class. Depth and competition at this position is critical.

    DL – LAF College and Villanove are great examples of how effective a tough mobile Dl can be to an overall defensive scheme. I would shy away from the 6’1" 300lbs chunkies in favor of the 6’3-4" 260 pounders with quickness.

    OL – Can never have enough beef in your diet…gravitate to taller 6’4" frames that can be molded in the weight room. You can add weight – you can add height.

    Agree with the above. With a lot returning next year, it ‘s 2-3 years down the road we need to be looking at. A quality QB and stud RB. Campbell has done well, but it would be nice to get an Abdullah type. Kaplan looks like he has tools, but didn’t see playing time this year, supposedly due to not learning enough of the playbook. I also agree with trying for some tall DL’s with quickness. A couple ‘hole eaters’ are needed in the middle, but the consistent rush from the corners who can disrupt passes even without getting to the qB would be nice. Listening Santa???

    I’d be thrilled with a Ronald Jean/Jermaine Pugh type back. Each had the ability to take it the distance on every play. The big play capability from the RB position hasn’t really existed since Pugh.

    After that athletes and speed at any position, difference makers ,have lost some each of the past couple of years to schollie schools & Ivies but Andy has gotten some too

    Brickner is done. His medical condition is such that he’d be taking a big risk by continuing to play (neck). May be back as grad asst. coach. Taylor and Pierce are expected back with medical redshirts, and HOPEFULLY, we get to see Winett in action after two seasons in a row of serious injuries. EAston HS as some real playmakers on D I’d like to see us go after if they have grades: Senior LB Murphy and down the road DE Caldwell-only a junior but real quick, though not the biggest, hence maybe some FBS schools may overlook him.
