    Oh, ok, guess I was hearing him called both and didn't realize it was the same person. Is Whop a nickname or something?

    Which of our commits/prospects are expected to sign in December? Will we have any EEs?

    I'll guess:

    OL's James Carvin and mystery croot,
    S Mason
    CB - Antonio Nelson
    WR's Whop, Antonio Gibson

    What y'all think?
    I don't have any inside info on any of this (Ari has been good in his posts over the past few pages though), but just thought I'd mention how our class would look if all of these guys came true (minus the mystery croot, whoever that is). We'd sit at a 223.83 overall composite score, which would put as the #24 overall class by last year's rankings, same spot as last year, with an almost identical class score. Some other notes though:
    - people are going to be dropped, we'd have 31 commits. But I'll go with Ari's advice on relaxing about the numbers. It'll work out.
    - The class would be about average at #24 overall... I'd love to see us improve to top 20 regularly. But, this class would have to be considered an enormous win because it would probably be our best OL and WR class under Mullen--positions we desperately have underrecruited.
    - I think it sets us up well with the 2019 class.

    It would also be a huge win because it looks like we're going to essentially sweep the state.

    Absolutely. Huge recruiting momentum and a great WR and OL class.

    It's not enough that they sign the number 1 ranked class every year, they have to cherry pick the top Jucos too.

    Just watched J. Reed's highlights on 247 for the first time, and I'm impressed. It might be my maroon goggles, but he looks like a legitimate SEC corner on tape. Has an impressive offer list as well. Thoughts?

    thoughts? he's a high school corner with offers from UGA , Oregon & Tenn. how often in recent memory have we been signing guys like that in the secondary?

    if we end up signing all the MS guys we are expecting, how long has it been since either MSU or tsun dominated the other in this fashion?

    I've been watching recruiting for 40 years and I have never seen us get so many of the top players and Mississippi getting practically none. We've had some really good years before, but never like this class.

    What are the chances that actually happens though? He's already a hard commit to UCLA and even if he does decommit, Nebraska is right up his arse.

    He's far from a hard commit. I like our chances we just have to close.

    MAN! watch the film on this guy. He is MEAN. even after he he's done his job knocking the guy he's assigned to out of the play and the offensive guy has run past him, he keeps on pursuing his guy until he's got his recorded pancake and seems to really enjoy falling on the guy too. He's not content with just protecting his offensive guy with the ball, he likes to get into the heads of the defensive people. would LOVE to have this guy.

    Also, can someone tell me why we haven't been making moves on Kirk Merritt? High 3 star WR playing just down the road in Scooba. I hate that we always miss out on local talent. At this point, I might walk on for receiver
