Anziah is still committed for now, he just isn't signing early. Edgerrin has decommitted. So, it'd make sense to include Anziah but not Edgerrin at this point.

Higher rated guys are going to be harder to come by now. We're going to be searching for 15 more guys between now and February that aren't signing anywhere this week. I'd love if we could keep our avg rating up where it's at now, but it's far more likely we see the avg rating drop between now and February as we add guys.

Texas State focuses on offense with early signings

Texas State concentrated on offense on the first day of the early signing period, with seven of the 10 players it signed Wednesday coming from that side of the ball.

That included two quarterbacks in Gresch Jensen, a junior college transfer from California, and Nebraska high schooler Cedric Case.

Jensen started 10 games for new Bobcats offensive coordinator Bob Stitt at Montana in 2017. He’ll have two years left of eligibility; he threw for 2,531 yards, 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions at Montana that one season and had 2,330 yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions at Fullerton College this season. He will enroll early.

Case decommitted from North Dakota after taking an official visit to Texas State last weekend.

“I wanted to come play for coach Stitt and (head coach) Jake Spavital,” Case said. “I think the offense we’ll be running is a lot of fun, and we’re going to able to score a lot of points. Coach Stitt has proven over and over again what a great play-caller he is, and to get the opportunity to be one of the (quarterbacks) coach Spavital will develop was something I couldn’t pass up.”

Case completed 73 percent of his passes — a Nebraska high school record — for 2,782 yards and 25 touchdowns his senior year. For his career, he completed 70 percent of his passes for 8,020 yards and 81 touchdowns.

The Bobcats signed five recruits that had been committed under the previous staff: Baytown Sterling running back Calvin Hill, La Porte defensive tackle Devin Henderson, Belton linebacker Devin Martinez, Smithson Valley tackle Ronald Copney III and Lewisville safety Kevin Anderson.

“After (former defensive line coach Issac Mooring) left, I was indecisive,” Henderson said. “But after I met the new coaches and talked to all of them, I really felt like they can change the program around, and I still felt that family vibe.”

The Bobcats got three late additions that committed after visits over the weekend: Gunter receiver Dylan Jantz, Prague offensive tackle Dalton Cooper and JUCO guard Eddie Rivas.

“I want to go somewhere where I am wanted. And I felt that there,” Jantz said. “The entire coaching staff showed it. It was an amazing feeling. With the coaching change, I believe that we will turn this program into something special and something that Texas State fans haven’t seen in a very long time. ... I didn’t just like Texas State; I fell in love with it. Everything about it was perfect to me, and I can’t wait to get down there.”

Underwhelming ESD class, but to be expected with a coaching change.

Interested to see what Spav and staff can pull for the regular signing period.

Man this website is in desperate need of bandwidth. Unfortunately, it's probably my last post here because the site crashes way too much. I'm willing to make a financial contribution if it would help the site.

As far as the rankings, when your lowest rated commit with no other offers doesn't sign it's because the offer is noncommitable or he's a non-qualifier. Time to move on.

Lastly, it's a New Era!

Lets put this early recruiting class into perspective guys...

Bryson McKinney the 3* QB that was committed to us signed with Texas Southern.... This at minimum tells you that the type of player we recruit at certain positions will change. Heck both signed QBs aren't known as "dual threat QBs" but both can run enough.

Now... lets go with our history of signing highly rated recruits:
https://247sports.com/college/texas-state/Season/2019-Football/Commits/

Out of the 9 top signed recruits, our most successful to date is #6 Bellard, 3 were busts (Kwame Brown, Martel Summers quit and Jamel James I believe was an academic reason) and
there is Brice Gunter and Roosevelt Pearson and then incompletes to this point for Roach and Jaylin Nelson, who both have been on field but have not yet become starters or regulars. Not a great list of high rated recruits making impacts.

Now back to our commits:

If you were to tell me that by the early signing period, we'd have a highly likely starting QB WITH experience in the new offensive system due to playing for Bob Stitt and a future QB that threw some ridiculous stats in HS, I don't know about you but I'm super happy because going into a new system with a running QB that can throw a deep ball and another QB coming off some multiple INT games... that doesn't sound great no matter how good an offensive GURU either Stitt or Jake are.

Next, you add a JC guard to come and help our up and down run game, two possible book ends at OT, a speedy RB and speedy WR, with a solid DT, likely need to some OLB, and another good Safety to add to list... I'd say we did damn good.

This now allows HC/OC/DC to find the wholes to fill for their offense (if we run some sort of West Coast O through spread O - do we need H-backs, more TEs???) and defense we know he "prefers 3 man fronts" (but will he like to have 2-3 Rush Ends on 3rd downs and 10+ yards or plan to move some of our DEs/OLBs to this position???). Once they decide and HC hires the rest of the coaching staff (I'd say by early January), they will turn back to the month of January to bring in those needs. Would I expect any of the decommits to return? Maybe a few but I do mean a few that may fit.

Lastly, our best signing is the 2* Gresch Jenson by far due to experience alone!

We know we need to improve OL and I wouldn't be surprised to see us go get at least one more JC OL (OT) and maybe still look to find a JC DE/DT that can make an impact.

Don't think he doesn't know A&M is on the schedule and he's going to want to scare them in any way he can and I LOVE IT!

I was worried about the o line and qb situation next year and I think that has been fixed with the JUCO signings.

I still worry about the kicking situation. A lot.

We signed a scholarship kicker (Kessler) and punter/kicker (Stewart) last year. We may sign one more but I doubt we want to use more than 3 of our 85 scholarships on kickers and punters.

We've struck out on a lot of kickers and punters lately. James Sherman, despite all indications being he's an awesome guy, had a bad tenure here on the field. Hopefully Kessler and Stewart can improve in their soph. years. Prob RS Fresh year for Kessler, I doubt he kicked in more than 4 games.
