Our RB room is stocked.

Have to imagine somebody there transfers.
Currently 8 on the roster including TA.
Tucker and Jones will be seniors.
Natee may be done? no confirmation. It would be great if he gets healthy.
Everyone else is a freshman or redshirt freshman.
We will need a Logan Jones type of replacement at RB and KO returns.
I am a believer you need 8 healthy on the roster at all times spread throughout your classes.

Need another bruiser that we missed this year as well as need to know who steps up as an H or tight end.
If my wish list is fulfilled this recruiting season Braedon Wissler from Utah would be the replacement for Logan Jones. Several FBS schools are trying to get him as a PWO and if that happens they are stealing him with that.

Braedon certainly looks the part.

"He was one of the top defensive linemen and also quarterbacks in the state of Washington his senior year."

Sounds like a Choate guy. :lol:

Coming down to Dixon, Lonergan, Owens, and Poetzl...in my opinion.

Sheeesh! Looking at the size of some of those “kids”, I’m glad I don’t play high school football. 300+ pound high school kids is just crazy. I remember when college and pro teams didn’t have 300 pounders, not even mentioning how muscular some of them are.

Hey Vim, what positions do you think the coaching staff will go after in the latter signing period?

- Transfer QB
- Transfer OL (interior for competition and to give that group more flexibility)
- Transfer TE
- Athletes at the QB position (need position versatility)
- 1 more WR (speed not possession)
- 1 more CB
- 1 more S
- 1 more OL
- 1 more LB

That's all I predict for now. May go after a transfer WR instead.

Our (9) Seniors graduating are;
• DL; Tucker Yates, Zach Wright, Tyrone Fa’Anono
• TE; Connor Sullivan, Wilson Brot, Curtis Amos
• OL; Alex Neale
• LB; Grant Collins
• WR; John D’Agostino

So far we’ve added (17);
Transfers
o LB; Blake Flovin
HS Recruits;
 QB; Blake Thelen
 OL; Jack Vering, Holden Sampson
 TE; Ryan Lonergan, Ethan Bullock
 RB; Demaeus Hosey, Joe Olson
 WR; Jaden Smith, Tanner Trafton
 DL; Rudder Romo, Marcus Wehr, Hayden Isenhart, Blake Schmidt
 LB; Cole Oster, Amandre Williams,
 S; Alex Johnson

What positions the staff will sign in February and if they'll be True Freshman or Transfers is a good question. Other good questions are....will Chris Murray, Jabarri Johnson or Tyler Natee be back. Kinda sounds like CM maybe, but JJ & Natee no.

Given what we know seems like certainly a Transfer QB and a Transfer TE would be high on the list. Only having 2 OL recruits is way low, even though most of our OL are F, RF & SO's. We currently have 15 OL on the roster with just 3 upper classmen, 1 Senior (Neale) and 2 JR's (Hammock & Brott). Since we don't have any Cornerbacks on the list you'd think we'd get at least 1, but it wouldn't need to be a transfer....we're pretty young there.

Any end of year/ signing day press conferences scheduled?

Would be nice if could get his thoughts on the season as a whole now that he has had some time to relent.

Press conference about the signing day class commencing as we speak. Not open to the public like the February version. No date for a season recap presser yet.

Jabarri Johnson and Tyler Natee are likely not to be back. Also, Colin Hammock has decided to graduate and give up his final year of eligibility. Alex Johnson is being recruited as an OLB.

Multiple college and high school coaches have told me Holden Sampson is the top player in Montana and it’s not even close.

I’ll put out my Locks, Solids and Tweeners early next week. I had 19 total last year. It’ll be less this year.
