What other positions are the coaches looking to fill during the next signing period if any? Maybe they wait to see what other athletes leave the program after spring ball and look for summer JC transfers.
Defense: Safety and corner (can never have enough). Really want to restock the defensive line with some more young talent, especially at 3-tech and edge rusher. Will likely get a transfer for the defensive line (or two) and safety position.

Offense: Maybe a power back from the JC ranks. Maybe one more offensive lineman or wide receiver. Mostly wrapped up the offensive in the early period.
We need a big running back for sure, a 225+ dude for short yardage situations. Natee was that guy before his injury. I don't see why we don't give the ball to RJ Fitzgerald now and again.
Because he's not much of a running threat at the college level. The cons outweigh the positives there, imo. He's a good blocker. Let's just let him do that.
Jaharie Martin is currently the power back in training for the Bobcats unless we sign one.
Booooooooo!
He's too short to play MLB anyway 99.... :-^

Exactly why he should be used "now and again." Maybe not on fourth down, but on first and goal from the one. Ifanse in the 'I' behind Fitzgerald. Hand it to Fitzgerald. One more thing for the defense to account for.

I understand the need for safeties and DL next season, but not sure the need for corners. There are six returning corners, Filer and Thomas are starters with three others seeing the field in 12 or more games, along with two outstanding incoming freshmen, I don't get it.

Next Year's corner group based off who played last year:

Filer - Sr.
Thomas - Sr.
Ty'Rhae Gibson - Jr.
Price Jr. - So.
Zambrano - So.

Others who will compete for playing time:

Ty'Rese Gibson - So.
Bohannon - Fr.
King - Fr.
Jackson - Fr.
Lenzy - Fr.

Zambrano and Bohannon may have to also compete at safety to our lack of depth there (pure speculation). Adding one more wouldn't hurt due to the position's potential for attrition every year.

Those are full ride offers. He originally committed to UCLA, then decommited, then committed to OSU.

A nugget: "Manning had just one offer at the end of April, from Montana State, but the evaluation period saw his stock soar, and he ended up with nearly 20 offers."

I mean, he changed his profile pic to himself in a Cat uniform, but doesn't officially say anything anywhere.

No idea what that string of emojis means haha. Feel like I should drink a Rainier and figure it out.

Looks like he’ll be a Junior. Redshirted in 2017 and played in 2018 & 2019
