We thought we’d hit a few key points concerning coach Tom O’Brien’s latest group:
KEY RECRUIT: Massive offensive tackle Robert Crisp, one of the best in the country at his position and No.2 on our list. A 6-foot-7, 300-pound beast who has clobbered some of the country’s best at combines and all-star games.
KEY SURPRISE: Keep an eye on Shrine Bowl defensive tackle Thomas Teal, whose 6-2, 325-pound bulk should fit well in
KEY STEAL: Quarterback Tyler Brosius of Waynesville Tuscola, who had committed to
KEY REMAINING TARGET: Running back Mustafa Greene of Irmo (S.C.) High. The second-best RB in
GOALS FOR THE CLASS: Strengthen the program at offensive line and safety, and add as much speed as possible. Consider them met. Kids like WR Tony Creecy and RB Tobias Palmer are burners. DB David Amerson (No.7 on our NC List) can play S or CB without a problem, and will be a factor.
BOTTOM LINE: Well done, and not quite finished yet.
