im constantly baffled by our inability to sign an elite linebacker prospect


we had 2 100+ tackle LBs last season and have a plethora of young talent at LB on the roster.

we signed like 3 or 4 4 star LBs last year .

well, it was one 4 star, Kwon, who I love but we only got him after bama backed off because of his knee. Deion and Feist were both 3 stars.

I'm not questioning their ability at all, in any way, in fact I think they looked very good. and that's my point. Minter wasn't even in the rivals top 250, neither was Kelvin Sheppard. THAT is what Chief does with GOOD linebacker prospects. what would he do with a Reuben Foster?

how do prospects not see this, or more to the point, how do we not make them see it?

Louis and Phillips were both 4 stars

lamar louis
lorenzo phillips
kwon

were all 4 stars and debo may be the best of the bunch. It's not our coaches faults that rivals didnt know a damn thing about Debo until after signing day.

Chavis wasn't even here when shep signed with LSU.

maybe get 130 tackles out of him like he did with Minter?

ok, you and Jim were right about Louis and Phillips, my bad. I wasnt trying to be cute, I just overlooked Phillips and forgot Louis moved from ATH to LB.

and I know Chavis wasnt here when Shep signed. again, this is my point. Chief took a good prospect and made him first team All SEC.

all Im trying to say is that Chief turns "good" into "great", so what would happen if he actually got to start with "great" now and then?

The staff viewed Minter as a great pospect. Recruiting site rankings aren't always gospel.
