you’re right to a point, there aren’t many Justin Fields of the world transferring, but at this point Penn state should just be in the market for some proven depth. we saw what the drop off was like when the second and third string DT’s get into the game. they’d be smart to add some guys along the lines.

but also, just because someone couldn’t start at their previous school doesn’t mean they aren’t talented. imagine getting stuck behind someone like Nick bosa. you could have 1st round talent, but you’re behind someone with #1 overall talent. don’t discount someone just because they’re a transfer

Well now that we have Parsons, Smith, and Dixon (align with Brooks and Luketa) we may have one of the most athletic and explosive group of linebackers in the conference/country in the next 2 years. so it is coming my friend

plenty of schools are having this issue, but i also think this could be a by product of the drastically improved recruiting. some of these players realize they’re now competing with guys that they no longer think they can beat (Juwan vs. Shorter). when they came here, we were littered with mid-high three stars and they were confident they’d play. now it’s 4 and 5 stars suddenly and they don’t see themselves touching the field

if they could somehow pull off Ellie’s, Nester, and Cross this class could be potentially better than the legendary 2018 class, and somehow there are still a few fans that are critical of Franklin on the recruiting trail.

Absolutely. I don't agree with the harsh criticism of Rahne because he was basically learning on the job, but that was one thing he without a doubt needs to fix next year. Get Hamler the ball by any means necessary.

Dunmore is a great comparison. Florida schools slow-played him because they thought they could just swoop in at the last second but Franklin had already established a relationship. i think it will all go very similarly with Wingo. also, none of the florida schools have nearly as much appeal these days except the Gators
