    That's more likely to happen at Alabama, I hear.

    Which is why Tech must sign at least two Dalvin type caliber DL players every year. They can't hang their hat on one good player every other year (or two) and expect to field an above average defensive unit.

    What about the rest of our DL commits for 2012? None are ranked as high, but all have significant talent.

    They need to snag some top ranked players if they really want to improve the defense.

    Question
    So I read on here somewhere that when Adams told PJ he was going to visit AU PJ said we had another kid visiting that could commit to his spot. Then Adams said "ok, Im not going." PJ then cancelled that kids' visit, then Adams went to AU anyways...

    Is this true and, if so, where can I read about?

    Maybe its changed but the people in my studios were much more "normal" than the average Tech student. But we still only wore shades of gray to the games.

    2 of my roommates were architecture majors during my sophomore year of college. . . They were extremely flamboyant and didn't know the difference between a touchdown and a touchback. I'm just messing with you though. You guys are MUCH more normal than EE's.

    Adams changed his mind because Auburn actually offered a scholarship later. Then he called the coaching staff to let them know he was going to Auburn but it was too late to bring the kid in. But PJ offered the guy anyway, but he didn't commit.

    All I remember was PJ said if you're looking than so are we.

    Auburn already has 3 solid tackles for this class, they don't need Will Adams but that's his choice.

    You would think he would have had a better chance for playing time with us. Now he will probably be riding the pine.

    I feel pretty good about our team as a whole. CPJ hasn't been everyone's favorite recruiter but I am starting to see the end result. I can't really explain the X's and O's of the offense but I really like the speed we have on the team now. We have several state Mr. Football players and speed we haven't seen in a long time. The replay of Prattville and Carver was on today and said J Thomas was a consistant 4.3 guy and clocked at 4.2 a few times. The game showed it! This guy on the edge would be stupid! I believe our offense finally has the players we need. As far as the D, I think we have as good as any linebacking, secondary crew as any. Our D line may be a weak point but CAG I trust will adjust. We'll see. I'm rambling, sorry. I just feel good about the guys we have on the team and I know CPJ can't wait to let them loose. GO JACKETS!!!!!!!!

    If somebody else would like to start one this year, feel free. My job doesn't allow me the time to follow recruiting like I used to anymore. I wasn't able to keep the OP as up to date as I would have liked this past year.
