Why only 1 OL recruit in 19, yet multiple WR

I feel like we over recruit WR and under recruit OL

It’s much easier to recruit OL than WR to be fair.

I don't know if I agree that OL are easier to recruit. They might get less press, but they are more sought after and tougher to keep healthy.

Is this backwards?

Easier to recruit WR than OL right, based on NFL success...

We have elite talent and play all over the field except OLine. I also do not believe Robbie Caldwell is good coach ie Mitch Hyatt has not gotten better the last four years.

I think we have a few good linemen now- Jackson and Brockhorst- but we also need someone to coach them up.


Disagree on Caldwell.

Easy to criticize him, until you watch FSU

Easy...we lost out on the recruits to better schools with OL history. It’s not like we aren’t recruiting OL, we just aren’t winning the battles.

Would y’all rather take a bad OL just to have numbers or our coaches go after what they perceive to be the best. Unfortunately we lost the recruiting battles and now we are after a DL we want to play OL but he’s considering DL at schools like Coastal and maybe SCar...

It's been a little better this cycle but last cycle they were really slow when it came to expanding the board. They were still way late offering Stacey Wilkins and late to the party with Wanya Morris, the latter of which probably could have been and still could be a winnable battle.

we have 15 olineman on scholarship, that is par for the course in CFB. We lose three this year which means we will likely take 3 in this class. The staff has said on numerous occasions that they are being selective here this year.

There are more elite WRs every year than OL. During the Bowen years we almost never put an OL in the NFL so thats our rep. and other schools use it against us. Also OL is probably the hardest position to evaluate out of HS.

I disagree about Hyatt. He is a very good left tackle. Last year he had nagging injuries. If you replace Caldwell , who would you hire?


We are recruiting OL pretty hard

For some reason, we have a hard time getting commitments from the elite guys. Doesn't mean we can't take high 3*/4* guys and turn them into road graders. Until more of our OL become NFL starters, (high hopes for Mitch Hyatt) other teams are going to have some success against us in this area.

We could do like UGA and keep 20 or so man mountain, corn fed country boys in the stable by providing hunting land and other goodies for them and their families. I have no idea how they get away with some of the stuff they do. It has to help when you have a state legislature passing laws designed to help you hide the goings on in your program.
