    Just did a mock to get best guess on attrition, came up with 25, so I would subtract 1 TE spot.  If I hear directly I’ll share.
  • IwantkendallIwantkendall Posts: 305 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    Db spot maybe?
  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    I would take from TE.  Based on who’s on the board as best available and productivity from the position.

    Highly doubtful less will be taken on defensive side of ball.  DL needs 5.  LBs need 2.  DB needs 3.

    The real question is did u put Arik as the one TE in ur mock?
  • dgd829dgd829 Posts: 3,140 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    With how much we actually throw to TEs and throw in general I always had a tough time seeing 3 WR & 2 TEs in this class. I'd love to have Arik Gilbert, but it's not like we would change our entire offense for him.

  • icecolddawgicecolddawg Posts: 249 ✭✭✭ Junior

    @SoFL_Dawg Would it be beneficial to forget a third WR and allow the position flex of TE/WR fit Gilbert? This way the one TE spot can be Washington/Johnson!

  • PharmDawg2054PharmDawg2054 Posts: 3,930 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    If we add:

    Arik Gilbert, Kendall Milton, Ringo, Rosemy, Walker, Ojulari, Whitehead and Raym then that puts us at a class composite of 307 with 20 recruits

    We are on good pace to hit a minimum composite of 310 and a ceiling of 330

    @PharmDawg2054 from what I’ve seen here the last few weeks Ojulari and Whitehead have not been considered to be in this class, better options higher on staff’s board with mutual interest in UGA
  • NCDawg4NCDawg4 Posts: 201 ✭✭✭✭ Senior
    @SoFL_Dawg do you still expect attrition of a currently committed DL to free up another space or has that ship sailed for now and we keep all we have at this point?

    FWIW Taking account of projected early draftees and transfers projected I have 27 scholarships opening up for 2020. Positional needs to fill those are QB 1; RB 2: OL 5; TE 2; WR 4 for a total offense of 14. This has Tongue as a TE but if he is a WR it would make it TE 3 and WR 3. On defense I project the needs as DL/OLB 6; ILB 2; DB 4 for a total of 12. Adding 1 to replace Rod that gives a total of 27.

    Given that we have only 23 available 2020 signees I see possibly adding 1 blue shirt and Nadab to leave us with 83 scholarships going into the 2020 season. The 2 spots unfilled would be TE based on youth at the position (all underclassmen) and ILB (signed 3 in 2019).

  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    @icecolddawg. Staff could do that but they really want a speed WR as well.  It’s just about who they’ll prioritize based on needs.  Slot WR has historically been more productive than TE. TE are used to block more so that will be considered as well.  If Goede proves he’s healthy and on track, I could see getting by with 1 if number stays at < 24.

    @Denmen185 has full class possibility projected so we’ll see.
  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yes they’ll be changes on DL but I have the position filled.  The people change, the number stays at 5.  Not a lot of wiggle room to take less than that based on those exhausting eligibility.
  • NC_DawgNC_Dawg Posts: 74 ✭✭✭ Junior
    Yeah that dawg fan fighting with Chris Milton on Twitter is the worst 
  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    Embarrassing.  Read that last night.

    I have 23 in this class but add Nadab (2018) and 1 Blue Shirt (2021). Reminder to all a Blue Shirt will not send in a LOI and wait to enroll at start of fall practice (or pay their own way until then). They also cannot have had an off campus meeting with the coaches nor taken an official visit to Athens (unofficial is allowed). As far as I know, Zirkel would meet these requirements ATM.

  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    My bad.  Doubtful on blue shirt (our targets are too talented and sought after for that).  Doubtful on Nadab, hearing bama this week and they were his first choice.

    We’ll see if anyone exits program via transfer after fall camp.  That’ll offer some flexibility.
  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    Not this one @AugDawg69.  He’s a alum and former hospital CEO.  Can’t buy class though even though he was talking to the father.  Compared him to Lonzo Balls dad.
