His decommitment definitely looks like it’s on Texas State’s side rather than him looking elsewhere. Need a big body and probably two for the DL. Schaefer and Lynch are the only two and both DEs. Lynch maybe a LB. Hopefully DL and LB are a priority for the remaining spots. Those two are the only ones for the front 7 on D in this class right now.

By the way, Blinn JC DE Cullen Wick committed to Tulsa... which I figured would happen since he never visited TXST.

Javiar Wade enjoyed his visit. I'm a little surprised with just a DI-AA offer that he didn't commit.

With the number 90 on his photo, seems it will be at DE.

Seeing his number is making me wonder if Jake Lynch (photo he took had #36) is going to be a DE as previously noted by Keff when he committed or will he be a OLB. Interesting.


Agreed on the DL situation and this decommit. I can't imagine going into 2018 with DE Davis 270, Hines 235, Schaefer 240, and Lynch 230. Nope... need more size at DE in a 3-4 D. I could see Lynch moved to OLB and/or a specialist on 3rd downs.. which hopefully moves Hines to what I feel is his true position... OLB with Vinson. I think we need immediate (JC DE/DT) type help to ensure no issues if a player goes down like this year (Davis out, Taylor missed 2-3 games and Banks as well to concussion protocol, FR broke leg before season, Lanza was hurt, and Hines was in and out at end of season). Depth is needed and I'm thinking 2 spots may be needed be it DT/NT and DE.

I like to watch our coaches and who they are "following" on twitter. Most recently, I've seen a few more JC DL listed on a few coaches so I do expect them to be considered. Most of the new ones listed having high GPAs so they don't seem to be grade risks and video is pretty good. We'll see if any visit this weekend or in following weeks.

decommit: Peyton Fifield.

With this being the 2nd decommit in a few days, what do you guys think is going on here? Just grade issues? Possibly coaches telling guys to look elsewhere and plan to use the remaining spots for JUCO or other recruits?

Just interested if anyone has a clue (other than that just being the recruiting game).

I don't know any specifics but there can be multiple things:

-Kid is hearing from another school and/or offered and plans to visit/commit on visit
-Grades
-Coaches looking another direction due to needs (remember, we had major issues on DL in last 3 games... using a Guard as NT, and I think burning a redshirt Freshmen)

Remember, this is a whole new thing. Those P5 coaches that don't like this new early signing process don't have those 2nd and 3rd options anymore if they signed early so they will have to sign their 3rd or 4th option. Trickle down. A&M takes away a 3* from Ark St. and they go after one of ours type thing is something that can happen.

All of this is new territory for coaches and all should have plan B, C, and D for someone like us... TXST.

We'll know more once we start hearing how plans to visit be it JC players or freshmen.

For what it is worth, Keff tweeted near the end of early signing day that these two would not be signing with Texas State, then deleted that tweet minutes later.

Did he now... Interesting.

That intrigue still has me thinking 2 DL at minimum 1 JC DT/DE is needed to help Davis on that side of DL. Considering injuries on that side, wouldn't mind 3 DT, NT, DE but we have many positions still need to be filled by depth (My guesses: 1-2 C/OG, 2 DL, 1-2 ILB, 1-2 CB, and maybe 1 S) anything else is needed depth.

I feel he must fill voids with these last 10 (3 verbals still) so its really 7 ships. We cannot use excuse of too thin on ships in his 3rd season. If he does, he had room to fill voids but didn't. I too am growing impatient and expect better in year 3.

That is interesting about Keff. I missed that.

just going off of the identical wording of their tweets re: open to all schools, one has to think that's the coaches cutting them loose and encouraging them to look elsewhere.

I’m not sure I’d try to interpret a 18-19 year old words...

Remember when Costilla tweeted something along the lines of recruiting him then not taking his commitment a 2nd time? Now he’s committed to Blinn JC. He goes JC.

My point being that they could be saying ALL schools, including JCs. We won’t know until they sign elsewhere.

We just know they aren’t coming to San Marvelous so let’s find out who will be in coming weeks.

Not sure if this confirms but someone asked Keff if it was grades and Keff tweeted eyes:

Not that it matters, but Costilla is commited to tyler not Blinn.
