    A couple things of note. May mean nothing but these were guys we were recruiting.

    These guys have not signed:

    5* WR Evan Stewart - Committed to A&M when things fell apart

    5* DE Shemar Stewart - He has been a huge A&M lean. We were briefly in the hunt months ago. Could be a Miami lean now.

    4* Jacoby Matthew’s - Louisiana kid. Was expected to commit to LSU today but did not. Texas has kind of thrown a wrench into everything. But we were in the hunt several months ago. Maybe again with new DB coach.

      I liked in the presser where he mentioned respecting and being ok with whatever a recruit and family decide. They really do have many options and this year, especially, I can only imagine the stress the kids go through. I believe with his calm demeanor and his confidence in his ability to articulate his vision, it will be exactly what some are looking for. And in return, it will likely attract the very kind of athlete he wants.

          Solid haul for 2 weeks OTJ and a makeshift staff. Makes you pretty optimistic about the future.

            This thread is about discussing the prospects left for NSD in February. Any past stuff can stay in the other threads.

              There is some chatter that 5* safety Sam McCall (who was committed to us but left us after the Torrian Gray fiasco) Is trying to get out of his LOI with FSU.

                Lots of interesting unsigned prospects in the top 250 recruits and beyond. Several in FL, LA, and TX. Tons of transfers too.

                This is where they try to find RBs, WRs, QBs, TEs or LBs, and DBs for defense to go with the six OL/DL they already got. One more lineman on each side of the ball wouldn’t hurt either.

                  You know he wants to be here. Lol, his buddy helped recruit him there, then bolted.

                    Well it looks like we may just have to put this thread on hold. It looks like we might be getting two more commits. Tonight.

                      Don't worry about posting in this thread unless it's about players that DID NOT sign on ESD.

                        Very little in the way of WRs out there now. The portal is going to have to offer some solutions if the coaches feel we aren’t dangerous enough with the players we have.

                          Which begs the question, are we dangerously thin?

                            As of now UF seems to still be in play for four unsigned rivals 250 recruits:

                            the two Louisiana RBs, Etienne and citizen.

                            DE Shemar Stewart of Opa Locka, FL

                            DT Christen Miller of Ellenwood, GA

                                we’re losing pouncey, shorter, and Copeland. Whiteandmore was a punching bag all season. No real game breakers out there for us. QB play probably distorted estimations of the rest of the younger group who did stay healthy unlike Trent. The game breakers all went to Bama. Someone has got to flourish or we need another van Jefferson.

                                  yeah, outside those four unsigned bigger fish I’m interested to see who they go after in the remaining recruits and transfers once the whole machine is running.

                                    The number should increase when we actually have a full staff in place. A lot of the recruits we signed today had some previous connection with the few coaches we do have (although not our head coach, which makes it more insane that he pulled this off today). I think one even said someone on staff (I keep wanting to say coach but we have so many analysts now) was the first person to ever offer him. When we have a whole staff of talented, credential, empowered, connected coaches this thing could be a force.

                                        I feel like Fraziers could be a good player. We do need to utilize the portal for some WRs I think you are right..
                                        Fraziers, Henderson, Whittemore, Weston, Shorter probably in the starting rotation. Still have Burke who I think has good hands and size. Kahleil Jackson is a legacy with size and some potential. I like some of our current WRs and hopefully we won't lose anymore from that position to the portal.
                                        Shazz Preston WR is currently unsigned. Idk if we have a shot at him at all. But he is from Louisiana. Maybe our new guys have met him before. Maybe we can pull off some miracle and get him and Walker Howard QB from Louisiana. A couple more five stars would be crazy. I like what the coaching staff looks like so far and what Napier has done. Very solid so far.
                                        Edit: Preston signed with Bama. My bad.
                                        Kevin Coleman WR is unsigned I think last I saw. Has interest in fsu or did he sign with scUM? Not a lot of guys left at WR damn. I would really like to see someone with some speed to compliment the bigger wrs we have. Fraziers and shorter are really big dudes.
