AWESOME.  He was the one I was waiting for.  Been on the computer watching for two days and just got off the computer for a few hours today and I missed it!!  Been following a few guys. No names to mention, hopes more than anything!

I think we may have picked up West Virginia transfer Ricky Johns.  Was a safety out of high school and they moved him to WR.  Maybe he goes back.  Top 25 kid out of Pennsylvania.  Temple, Villanova, and West Virginia were his final three out of high school.  Would make sense as a db.

Also regarding Jalen Rima... Appears he could be McDonald replacement for returns. Has video of him taking return to the house on his twitter (while at UNI not hs)

I know.  Read what I wrote.  

I did.  Don't think so but who knows, anything is possible.  We are over-loaded with WR now.   Very hard not to be excited at the additions when added to the men returning.  Very hard.......but...  Still 2 more to hit the 20 that Coach G. thought we might hit!  

There are some parents who I speak with who agree with you that he may be moving back to Safety.  I guess we'll see.   Good at either position I'd say.

Yep, kid is from Florida and another tall one. 6' 1" or 2".  And they have been recruiting a couple in the transfer portal.  Someone mentioned the ones that were redshirted last year, Couple of 6' 0" to 6' 3".  They have to be biting the bit waiting too.  I personally am hoping for a couple of more lineman as well.  Totally depends on what scholarships and positions they have left.  There is a limited number above scholarships who can be on the team.  If somebody knows for sure please post.  I think it might be 105.  Also I would guess it depends on IF and how many current players see the handwriting on the wall and leave the program, including walk-ons. Coach Gatusso had said as many as 20 so we are getting really close.

He MAY be a mid-year transfer.  Looks like him on the far right of the Team Zenelovic in the Draft!!!

63 full rides.  Split amongst 85 players but a total of 63 rides.  Total team limit for active players, I believe, is 125...travel limited is set by the CAA...think it is in the 50's.
