To be completely transparent about the trenches.. we can take 5-8 lineman on each side of the ball in this class and I would still say we aren't all that far away from being lean. It couldn't hurt to have a true 3-deep in the trenches...hopefully after this class we will have at least a full 2-deep at every position on the line though I still feel like we are short at guard.

Good times seeing my man @mccray_randall from @TXSTATEFOOTBALL back on the recruiting trail in NOLA! A solid, solid guy cut from the "old school" cloth of doing things the RIGHT WAY! Great to talk [football emoji] and shoot the breeze with! [thumbs up emoji]

Hmmm

Wonder if TXST will be flipping some this direction come NSD.

Starting to get interesting with a flurry of offers, commits, decommits.

Finally! I knew after Jacoby Hopkins commit/signing that it was highly unlikely we'd sign 5 WRs. In this WR signing class, we have speed with these 4 while also gaining size in 3 above 6'1 (2) and a 6'4 WR and then add Sheread's ability to use his speed on kick off returns, reverses (think Watts but only faster), and in the backfield. We hit all the things we need to go along with Hays, Watts, White, Johnson, Haydel, Twyford, and I've been waiting to see Bedford since we signed him.

Personally, I was hoping to get another ship and expected him to leave before the others decommitments. He tweeted to a USC Asst. Coach his video... tweeted it not direct message in Nov/Dec. so to me he wasn't planning on staying a while back. Surprised it took him this long to decommit.

Other needs are bigger than WR in my opinion. All in all, nothing in Pitre's highlights impressed me. I'm not sure what we are losing that Graham, Hopkins, and Aragon don't give us.

Don't forget we only signed 4 OL last year since Mayes and Pesa never made it in due to health issues and grades. We need at least 1 more OL but maybe 2 should be added. Same on DL where at least 1 more is needed. Then ILB/OLB, CB, and/or DB/TE.

And for those that just like to count stars... Pitre was dropped to a 2*. Just pointing it out.

In what I hope to be good news, Taj Bickham Twitter page (he has two: @BickhamTaj has been tweeting on most recently)... I noticed he's put Texas State Commit on his page. It was never on his previous twitter page and is on this one.

Here is to hoping we can keep him in this class. He's a need as a kick returner, CB, and special teams with his speed.

FLT... True but so was Pitre until I let 24/7 know he committed elsewhere. He's always been listed as a TXST bobcat but he's NEVER put TXST commit on his twitter page. I'm hoping the significance to him posting TXST commit is that he's "truely" committed and will sign with us. That is my point for my post about him listed himself as a TXST commit.

I'm sure its due to the early recruiting cycle that allows recruits to visit in April/May, I believe. Gotta get offers out to the ones you want or are interested in say for Spring Game and/or baseball games. Then consider the summer Party in the Park where the last 2 classes had most of their commits come from that event alone.

As to be expected, this recruiting period is new to everyone from college to high school coaches and their kids.

You would hope we had a few official visits this weekend.

hope being the 1st offer (or one of the first couple) pays off for us down the road.
