JUCO Signing Day Thread - Wednesday 12/19/12

I'm glad Johnson signed and here is why. We have a OC that implemented the spread offense. We did pretty well with a QB that was smart and had a pretty good arm but NO ability to threaten the D with the run or turn a scramble into a big gain. We now have what the coaches wanted.† There should be no reason why the offense shouldn't be more wide open. I think our offense can run fine if we have a QB that can simply run the system, has a decent arm ,and can run the ball. We have some very skilled people around him now. The QB doesn't have to be great, just a duel threat. Now lets get the others , including Whitehead. Also, lets not forget about the LB Benjamin that showed some interest in FAU.

Is anyone from the staff or team going to be meeting these kids when they move in for the spring? You know help them get settled and the lay of the land?

One thing I'm not knowledgeable about† is the rules regarding recruiting HS kids this time of year. I know there are restrictions. But can the coaches have any communication with them?

One big body on the D line , now lets wait to get one on the O line in Lyons. I don't know if they are ready to start but they certainly fill a need.

That's not true.

Geroux told me that "it's unfortunately not 100% now, but still a possibility."

He could still end up signing in the next couple of weeks.
