Cannot field a team full of WR's and athletes and expect to compete with the big boys.
I believe Borque is the 12th RB..I may be wrong though
Also we don't really need OL this class
If we signed the #1 RB, #1 LB, and the #1 OL people would still complain. Considering all the crap that has happened since the Kentucky loss, I'm friggin tickled at what was accomplished in the recruiting class.
and welcome to the board , you will really like it here
Have you seen our Oline numbers and depth. can't and really dont need to sign any more. 1 or 2 would have been the max.
Glad these 20 guys aren't the whole team. Remember all the freshman/ sophomore linebackers and offensive lineman we've been playing lately?

Don't need a great rb when defense is gonna dang near be playing dime protecting pass every play
"bray to _________ for Td" every five minutes next season
This comment made me happy so I +1'd you!
UT Class of 2012 #17 on 247Sports.com
Agreed +1. We do have a "blue chip" in Marlin Lane. Bourque has drawn comparisons to Matt Forte, Alden Hill is underrated, and Quenshawn Watson is stupid fast. Also we have Maggitt, Johnson, and Lathers at the back. Leave the pessimism at VolNation.
Oh I thought he came from Rivals.
Best thing to come out of Alabama: I-59 North
Could you tell us what we should do?

True. This is a great class. They don't give you wins for the ranking of your recruiting class. The biggest thing is will their character and scholarship allow them to be a contributing member of the team. We needed more LBs. Ashame we lost Peters and Santos. That would have been the best class in the last five years. The most important signees are Sentimore, Patterson, and Hill. Two will be in spring practice and the other is SEC ready to play. These three will impact next season. With the loss of six coaches, holding this class together was difficult and not without casuaties.
Really good summary. +1

Tough crowd. I got down voted for that. Wow.
+1 to make up for it ol dad.
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
For every -1 get 3 +1. Here's another +1 for ya.
Your team. All the time.
I agree that other positions (DL, OL) are more important than WR. However, I think we're already strong at OL. There is a lot of competition there already. So it wasn't a big need.
As far as linebackers go, would have been nice to hang onto DS and OP, but we didn't. We have some good ones returning though, and a couple of new ones in this class - Lewis and King come to mind. Probably don't have the depth there that we'd like, but the LB position was very competitive this year. Look at Bama, they took 5 LB's from the pool.
I think we'll be alright. LB is a position that we will probably focus on next year.
