    It'd be nice to get him.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    We would probably see the efficiency of the QB jump significantly.

    Holker was great at Lehi. I think he is a nice pickup.

    Tausinga looks unbelievable on film. But needs to add weight.

    Romney is the jewel of this class, best high school receiver I saw this past year.

    The rest are meh.

    I think some of the ol are solid and Amone Finau is intriguing, but this class is loaded with projects who had no other FBs offers, Herron, Moore, Davis for example. I’m okay with projects but all 3 corners are. Stacey Connor is interesting, but I don’t he looks polished enough to see time at QB for awhile. Maybe he could be a receiver or lb.

    I think getting Dylan Collie and Tre Watson would help. But this seems very mediocre. CJ, what do you think about Wilson?

    What about Finau?

    I don't enough about Moore or Herron. Did we sign enough in the fall to fill holes?

    It was overall a weak class but better to reserve scholarships after a revived season than to sign kids just because. Romney should be able to contribute next year.

    What about the newly revealed December signees, Harris LaChance and Jacob Smith?

    I would say "according to the scouting services, the worst class in recent BYU history."

    I do think there are some nice players in this class. Romney I think is the one signee who has the chance to be a difference maker, IMO. But I like Holker, Zach Wilson and Tausinga.

    It's definitely a let down when you think that we had guys like Latu and Kaho signed, and a legit shot at McKee. Landing those guys absolutely would've swung this class from being very not good to one of the better classes ever.

    We will see with McKee once he serves a mission.

    Zach Wilson is interesting, I think he is legit. I was really impressed with him. It wouldn't surprise me if he competes for the starting job. I think that says a lot about him and a lot about our current QB situation.

    What I have seen from Stacey Connor, no way does he play qb.


    Also Zadock Dinkelmann is going unsigned.

    Moore and Herron had no other offers.

    LaChance needs to put on weight but he could be ok.

    I love Romney, he is a monster and I expect him to start as a freshman.

    Or to win. The recruits signing would be a lot different if the season were a 9 and 4, or 10 and 3.

    Detmer was a pretty awful recruiter outside of some novelty value to LDS guys. Is Buchanan the only guy he got out of Texas?

    This commit, a preferred walk-on I believe is listed at 6'2" but the linked photo next to Sitake makes me doubt that seriously.
