Thomas was a very nice win by this staff; no doubt. And locking up Lawrence, especially so early, was also a good job by this staff. I really liked last year's class, fwiw.
I still think Turrentine (IF he sticks with OSU) is a big miss. I'm not that upset with losing the TE, Bringingstool(?), as I think it's going to be difficult for this staff to recruit a top-tier TE unless the position in Chaney's offense matures to something more than an extra blocker.
We’ve lost highly ranked instate (and in Leroy Thompson’s case, LOCAL) throughout our history. When we recruit equal or better (Reggie Cobb) replacements and coach them up, that’s when we’ve been the best in our history. National recruits are like most cattle...they head to the nicest looking pasture.
