    He's a grad transfer, was a 6.0 on Rivals, not much stats wise. Looks like he may have 2 years remaining. Found and article that said he did not finish a practice and decided to concentrate on graduating so he could transfer. Not a good look, but USC is a dumpster fire of sorts, so hard to say. Article says SS or Nickel.

    Safety Ykili Ross opts for graduate transfer from USC

      Lamont Wade, 2017 Cornerback - Rivals

      He is only 5'9, but I imagine that means less at safety than corner. Not sure on his eligibility, but imagine he'd have to sit a year. Not sure if there's much of a chance to begin with, or if he'd add anything more than depth. Just interesting that he was once the #1 CB coming out of HS

          I thought Jaelan Phillips transferred to Miami.

          We don't have seats. We will have to flush people to land Bogle, Elam, and Moore.

          I think it is going to have to be someone very proven.

            You prepping to dump because Mullen might land too much talent, have a big/highly rated/high quality class, a full roster, and clean out some Butters’ specials? Never change donkers - you make this place interesting.

              I was just browsing through the portal and Miami has 6 transfers coming in (I'm not sure which one's will have immediate eligibility though):

              QB Tate Martell - from Ohio State
              DB Bubba Bolden - from USC
              DT Chigozie Nnoruka, from UCLA
              OL Tommy Kennedy - from Butler
              WR KJ Osburn - from Buffalo
              RB Asa Martin - from Auburn

              Florida State has two:

              QB Jordan Travis - from Louisville
              OL Ryan Roberts - from Northern Illinois

              We'd really only take a safety if we thought he was guaranteed to start, bc I don't think our coaches think our safety room is as bad as some people here think. Including nickel, you have 5 older guys (counting Lenton), Dean, Burney and at least one true freshman likely. I think it's time for english to do some coaching and get another player to go along with the kid we already have in the 2020 class.

                I'd rather see Engrish move along and let Gray just handle things.

                I'd also like to see Brian Edwards given a shot at Safety. He's 6'2 and closing on 200lbs. I just don't see him ever really contributing at CB if he can't get past McWilliams. And maybe they have given him a shot and I didn't notice.

                  Lol, you're probably not the only one that wishes Gray took over.

                  A bunch of people thought Edwards was a safety when he was being recruited, but shannon's scheme allows safety types to play cb. Last year we needed him there bc of #s. Luckily, our good cb class will allow him to move back so maybe he makes a move.

                  Edwards was on the field some. He just didn't get smoked much so you may have not noticed. So was Davis and Stewart.

                  It's much easier to see 29, 13, and 12 when they have the back to the camera trying to catch up and the TD gets repeated several times, sometimes in slow motion.

                    Edward's did actually grade pretty well when he was in. At less than 100 snaps and some of that likely in garbage time, likely would have dropped if he was a real contributor though.

                    Unfortunately Davis and Stewart only played partial seasons.

                      We have about 12 OLB Rush specialists. So many that we are playing two of them at DT apparently.

                      Seriously, why would we need him?

                      Because he’s 6’5, 245lbs. And was the top SEC freshman contributor.

                      He’s a monster.

                        Can he play DT or safety?

                        Also, if he is homesick and wants to move home to mama, why would Gainesville be better?
