Christian Tago: Well, no one doubts that CT will be on the inside. He seems to get tougher every year. This being his senior year, I expect he will take it to another level.
Frank Ginda: Frank has the physical tools to be a great LB, but last year he missed too many tackles because he over committed, and sometimes he let himself get blocked because he let O-Linemen get to him. I hope he steps up his game.
William Ossai: Will got a lot of playing time, even though I thought he was in over his head most of the time. He has got to sharpen his instincts and learn the game. This is not HS. He has size, speed and strength, but not enough football instinct. I hope he develops them and fast!
Epie Sona: He may play a lot more this year. He is tough and has good instincts, but not the size, although he looks big in a uniform. He needs to be on the inside, if he becomes a starter. I think he can plug-up some holes.
Now to some real optimism with some new players:
Brett Foley: I really think this kid has a--"as RC says about each of his recruits"--huge upside. He has speed, size and I believe some "football instincts." I have high hopes that if given a change Brett will be a player.
Cory Adolphus: Another reason to be optimistic, Cory only has to put on some weight. I think he could become a force on the inside. I just don't know if he has the speed to be on the outside.
The LB corps seems to be thinning out. This was one of the deepest positions during Coach Mac's tenure.
Comment: The biggest mistake that RC did was keep Shane Smith at FB. RC doesn't have a clue about personnel, and putting players in positions where they will be successful. Mark my words--Shane will be a LB at the next level.
Now, what are your opinions?
