    It is just based on we have 15 WRs coming back next year (including the recruits). That is a lot more than most schools. Seems like 10 is closer to normal.

    FWIW, Temple does have 16 on their current roster.

    I don't know what is normal for us and of course, there could be some attrition.

    Welcome Nate!

    Kid has great feet, route running, and acceleration. He's going to be a special one for us.

    WR’s are great to have on ST’s as well. Need as much speed on the field as possible.

    Another one we flipped from NC State. Not letting kids like this out of the state, anymore. I believe he is underrated on Rivals.

    Doesn't mean a whole lot but he's rated higher than Downs by 247.

    You have to ask?
    Sounds like that will make us 5 deep at WR

    That may be true, but IMO Downs might be the best slot WR prospect in the country for 2020. It’s a shame the stars aligned for UNC (uncle on staff and our offense has struggled) because he’s a local kid who hates uga.

    But again, McCollum has the tools which is mainly speed. Not upset to see his name in the class.

    This kid is a 4* talent. He's a stud.

    4 wide sets with Brown and McCollum in the slots? Good luck, ACC.

    Downs moved on from GT before the season started.

    Was a popular flip prediction down the line before publicly ridiculing our offense after a few games.

    What is not to like about this young man? Just for kicks, observe how fast he takes off after the snap - faster than a New York cab after the light turns green.

    Downs was my biggest bummer in this class and now I am not bummed, anymore. Plus, this just adds to an outstanding baseball class as a bonus.

    While we are kinda high on WR numbers, we're not real high on quality slot receivers, so I'm feeling happy about this recruit. We may have some attrition at WR, and it would be necessary.

    Gosh, this might be the worst produced video I've seen in my entire life.

    We are wanting to get to the point where we can spread 3-4 highly talented WRs out and sling it all over the yard, while mixing in read option and RPO concepts. Going to be a Big XII-ish offense and nasty when everything is in place.

    Thanks Ridley. Someone make a note of it.
