Guys- I have some concerns about Matty's 2012 and subsequent 2013 recruiting strategies.
First off I kind of feel he missed the boat on Gary Harris and DSR. I guess he's still in the running for DSR, but Harris is a long shot and now #1 priority. Shouldn't he have offered them before he offered Davis and Mollock? As I said I hear Harris is now #1 priortity and we're flirting heavily with Hollowell. We're full for 2012, where is the extra scholly coming from? Is there an assumption Mollock won't be here, with the ACL and all. Is Bade's move to the dog house a messagee to the kid, especially with another big white dude coming in next year and Carroll looking like a a legit B10 player. Also if we're a long shot on Harris and we're insisting 2012 is done yet, shouldn't we just take the bird in the hand that is Hollowell?
Next question: With Bryson on board, and probably Beachem soon, looking at the roster don't we need a 5 down the road? If you assume we find one in 2013 (only place we have room), any ideas who? I don't see us being ok with Lawson and Hale being the only 2 "Big" men on the team. Along with that, assuming no one leaves, it leaves 1 spot for either Smotherman, Irvin, Foster, and Stephens. Who's the best and who's the most likely get. Toss in Hollowell if Mollock does sign.
Matty's strategy is very confusing... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated....
