this isn't Big10. Coach Jones needs to "process" players like Saban.

Played with West in high school. Not even one our 10 best players honestly. But, our team was loaded. Had several DII and DIII players. He was maybe the 3rd best WR (generously there) and the 4th best DB until his senior year.

He's a great kid and love him like a brother. but nobody at our school in the past 20 years was good enough to go DI in any sport (Except for Brynae Laxton who played for the vols in the 90's). Seems like a head scratcher to me.

Won't it be most of these kids final year? We have the scholarships to spare this year and they'll open right back up next year. Class move by Butch.

Nope. Im glad these guys earned their scholarships. Kudos to them. However, I was just waiting for 3* police, the "stop giving schollies to non 5*s", "walk-ons don't deserve scholarships", "CBJ can only sign 2* and walk-ons", etc.

We all know it will happen with this fan base.
