Confirmed “Suprise”

[3]
Posted: Dec 18, 2018 8:35 PM
 

Anna just confirmed on 247 that the surprise commit is 3-star OT Kaleb Boateng. Important pickup at a serious position of need. A little disappointed it wasn’t a higher rated guy, but very pleased the coaches are at least trying to address the OLine issue. She also picked Clemson as Putnam’s destination, fwiw

I wonder why this had to be kept secret


Re: Confirmed “Suprise”

Because they know we like surprises! ??

Maybe the kid asked for that since it was so

close to signing day. Look at how Fritzsche got bombarded by Nebraska after they found out we offered. IMO this kid looks as good or better


I'll take it

3 bodies makes me feel a lot better about depth than just having Rayburn by his lonesome. It looks like we’ve addressed some of the recruiting strategy decisions that got us into a little bit of trouble this year for the 2020 OL class. A Tyler Davis, Boateng, Putnam close with Crouch possibly being extra would be a great finish.

She’s also very confident we land Davis, as well. Putnam will likely not announce until Thursday, but may tell the coaching staff he chooses by tomorrow evening. We all need to remember that this is just the 1st signing day, and there are a handful of guys who won’t sign until February. 3-star OT Darius Washington (Miss St Commit), who I really like, comes to mind. Doug Nester, current OSU commit, is another guy we should pursue for February. He’s been receptive to Penn St and V Tech reaching out to him, why not Clemson? Also, like you said, I’m very happy to see us jump on some very good OLine guys early for 2020. Tchio is awesome, and Williams and Parks will be very good. We’re in a great spot to land Mitchell Mayes as well, along with Jalen Rivers and Marcus Dumervil, all high 4-stars.

You’re kidding? No offense but looking at his offer sheet you’d think he was a basketball player.

No sir, I am not. His offer sheet is a little lackluster, and it’s not the flashy surprise we all wanted, but it does address a position of need, and if nothing else, gives us a little depth. 2020 is looking fantastic for OLine recruiting, so 2019 just needs to generate some depth at this point. Also, our odds are increasing with Putnam the longer he waits. We shall see...

On the same guy. She couldn’t pick an apple out of a barrel of oranges if she cheated

Sometimes is because info changes rapidly, like it did with Fritzche. And then sometimes it’s to bring in some clicks and some new subscribers. Whatever the case, she’s usually really accurate

Hope she's right about Putnam

This kid at 6'4' right @ 300lbs won't be a bad addition

Hope Darius Washington still visits. Word is ,he's not signing tomorrow

Would love to see us pursue Washington, and at least reach out to Doug Nester. I mean come on, he’s listening to VT. Some guys have also hinted at us looking to add another edge rusher, assuming we miss on Crouch. Would be interested to see who they go after there too.

DW is supposedly lining up a Clemson visit


Posted: Dec 18, 2018 8:59 PM
 

Crouch ? I think they replace him with OL recruit. taking 5 lb's and maybe 2 RB's already


Re: Hope she's right about Putnam


Posted: Dec 18, 2018 9:01 PM
 

It’s been reported that Washington visited Clemson last weekend. I suspect we game him a lot to think about, hence the delay in deciding.

if a 3 star guy is a surprise then I shouldn't get my hopes up much for the rest of signing day


These 24 plus a few more will sign for sure tomorrow.

Have you guys looked at his tape. Quick feet, and loves contact. He's a keeper!


Re: Confirmed “Suprise”

Rayburn, Putnam, Boetend, and 1 other would be a great OL class imo.

Yes it would be. Somewhat contingent on Putnam. If he’s in this class, it’s a win, imo. If we miss on Putnam, that definitely stings a little. Still want to see us pursue Darius Washington and Doug Nester.
