  8. I've been doing pretty well as of late. During my freshman year here at Iowa State I was feeling pretty down because I'm fairly introverted so I wasn't meeting a lot of people, but towards the end of the year I started doing a lot better with getting myself out there. I'm just finishing up being an orientation leader here so I'm pretty mentally and physically exhausted from that, but I've met some awesome people and gained some really valuable skills from it. We have a two week break coming up and when we come back the job is a lot less time-intensive so I'll be able to recuperate a bit. I also switched my major near the end of this past year so I'm excited to get started with those classes in the fall. I think the curriculum for my first major was sort of contributing to me feeling unmotivated and unhappy so this switch was definitely needed. It's not much, but that's an update on my life at the moment. I'll also say: if anyone needs someone to talk to about things going on in their life my inbox on here and on Discord are always open so feel free to message me!

    [2023] CFBHC Schedule

    Week 2: @ Old Dominion @TheTacoOfDoom Week 3: vs. UCLA @cultur3 Week 4: @ UMass @joedchi Week 12: vs. Army @thatfunk All confirmed.
  14. Skills: +2 Defense +2 Special Teams -1 Discipline -1 Clock Management Skills after 2022: 10/12/12/9/9/10
  15. Coastal pre-progression: hoping my redshirt 1/3.5 freshman OLB progresses well because I thought my senior OLB last year was a junior for some reason so I didn't really recruit anyone for the position.
  16. I'd love for Iowa State to make the Sweet 16. At their best, this team seems like it could make it to the Final Four, but at their worst they could lose by 15 to OSU, so it's hard to know what to expect.
  17. South Alabama Conference Rank: 1 National Rank: 76 RB Antowain Lawlor 5-10 221 Fr Jemison (Jemison AL) 1.0 of 5.0 [Power] RB Leonard Williams 6-1 213 Jr Columbus State Community College (Columbus OH) 4.0 of 4.0 [Power] FB Jacob Randolph 5-9 248 Jr Northwest Shoals Community College (Muscle Shoals AL) 4.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] WR Robaire Rivers 6-3 219 Fr Chipley (Chipley FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] TE Savion Reese 6-0 243 Fr East Bakersfield (Bakersfield CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blocking] OT Alejandro Carmona 6-7 279 Fr Sinton (Sinton TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OLB Vince Benedict 6-2 237 Fr Druid Hills (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Coverage] OLB Bryce Bush 6-2 225 Fr Jesuit (Tampa FL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Coverage] ILB Nathaniel Harley 6-1 228 Fr Grady (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Mike] CB Tavarreus Hopson 6-2 168 Fr North Hall (Gainesville GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] CB Nat Phillips 6-1 168 Fr Jasper County (Monticello GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] LS Yahir Muniz 6-1 272 Jr Marion Military Institute (Marion AL) 3.0 of 4.0 [specialized] This was a small, but highly talented class for coach rocksaucesundae. Running back Antowain Lawlor will be able to redshirt before running wild on Sun Belt defenses for the next 3-4 years. Columbus State Community College product Leonard Williams looks to carry the load while Lawlor develops. He’ll also have JuCo fullback Jacob Randolph to clear the way for him for the next two years. Offensive tackle Alejandro Carmona and blocking TE Savion Reese look to lighten the load for Lawlor as well. The Jaguars picked up JuCo long snapper Yahir Muniz to buff their special teams play a little bit. Wide receiver Robaire Rivers will be a nice red-zone target in a few years after he develops a bit. The rest of this class will likely redshirt, but will all be at the very least decent starters in their junior and senior seasons, such as cornerbacks Tavarreus Hopson and Nat Phillips, and outside linebacker Vince Benedict. The only troubling aspect of this class is the size, but when you recruit a guy who will be one of the best players in the Sun Belt right away, it’s hard to complain. @rocksaucesundae Coastal Carolina Conference Rank: 2 National Rank: 79 QB Zion Stewart 6-0 190 Fr White Knoll (Lexington SC) 2.0 of 3.5 [Pocket] RB Bronson Pennington 5-11 215 Fr Crescent (Iva SC) 1.0 of 3.5 [Power] WR Shamar Wiggins 5-9 196 Fr Tucker (Tucker GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Speed] WR Dillon Crocker 6-0 197 Fr Bowman (Bowman SC) 2.5 of 3.0 [Target] TE Eli Corbett 6-3 222 Fr Edisto (Cordova SC) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blocking] OT Jason Lunsford 6-6 332 Fr North Central (Kershaw SC) 1.5 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Zack Berger 6-3 265 Fr Northwest Whitfield ( GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] OG Max Crouse 6-2 313 Fr Warner Robins (Warner Robins GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] DE Evander Gilliam 6-7 250 Fr Seneca (Seneca SC) 1.0 of 3.5 [Contain] DE Daleroy Hinds 6-3 268 Fr Druid Hills (Atlanta GA) 2.0 of 3.0 [Contain] DT Jacob Sousa 6-5 309 Fr McCormick (McCormick SC) 2.5 of 3.5 [2-Gap] OLB DeVante Jack 6-3 236 Fr Cardinal Mooney (Sarasota FL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Blitz] ILB Joleon Pratt 6-0 227 Fr Lake View (Lake View SC) 1.5 of 4.0 [Will] ILB Quanah Johnson 6-4 259 Fr Westside (Macon GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Mike] CB Mamadou Cooper 5-10 171 Fr Putnam County (Eatonton GA) 3.0 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] CB Kayden McKinnon 5-10 167 Fr Richmond Hill (Richmond Hill GA) 1.5 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] FS Gregory Jack 6-0 222 Fr Pelham (Pelham GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] SS Nicolas Bullock 6-2 211 Fr Marion (Marion SC) 2.0 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] K George Bloom 6-1 163 Fr Chapin (Chapin SC) 1.5 of 3.5 [Accuracy] P Lukas Parr 6-3 190 Jr Antelope Valley College (Lancaster CA) 4.5 of 5.0 [Power] P Andrew Fitzpatrick 6-4 188 Fr Thomasville (Thomasville, NC) 1.0 of 3.5 [Power] While it’s somewhat lacking in high-end talent, a majority of Coastal’s players will be solid at the collegiate level. 4.0* prospects Joleon Pratt and Jason Lunsford will likely play as soon as they step on campus. Cornerback Mamadou Cooper projects to be the number one CB right away as current number one John Mitchell will be graduating. There was also a clear focus on improving special teams with this class. Freshman punter Andrew Fitzpatrick will likely redshirt with JuCo product Lukas Parr ready to take over the reins right away. Kicker George Bloom looks to be the starter right away as Coastal was just 54% on field goals this season. Wide receiver Dillon Crocker doesn’t seem to have the potential that fellow receiver recruit Shamar Wiggins has, but he does seem to be more prepared to play right off the bat. And while QB Zion Stewart looks to be decently ready to go, it is assumed he will redshirt his first season in Conway as Roger Reese will be back for his senior season. As stated earlier, there doesn’t seem to be an immense amount of pro talent in this class, but it should be a nice base for coach imerman to build off of in coming years. @imerman Georgia Southern Conference Rank: 3 National Rank: 82 QB Julius Spicer 6-3 220 Fr Westside (Macon GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Scrambling] QB Marcus Keating 6-0 220 Fr North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Scrambling] FB Derek Dowling 6-1 259 Fr Biloxi (Biloxi MS) 1.0 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] WR Trevor Hobbs Jr. 6-5 201 Fr Warner Robins (Warner Robins GA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Target] WR Daniel Tinsley 6-4 205 Fr Northwest Whitfield ( GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] TE Luca DeVries 6-3 196 Fr Mitchell-Baker (Camilla GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Receiving] OT Marlon Warren 6-2 269 Fr Wilcox County (Rochelle GA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Captain Diggs-Lundy 6-1 302 Fr Northeast (Macon GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] C Antowaine Greer 6-1 277 Fr Druid Hills (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] DE Lamont Pryor 6-1 253 Fr North Hall (Gainesville GA) 2.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] DE Nathan Dotson 6-1 263 Fr Grady (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] DE Khiry Humphrey 6-1 244 Fr North Atlanta (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Blitz] DT Mohamed Dickerson 6-1 280 Fr Irwin County (Ocilla GA) 1.0 of 4.0 [1-Gap] OLB Andrew Dasilva 6-2 221 Fr Redan (Stone Mountain GA) 2.5 of 3.5 [Coverage] OLB Connor Harding 6-3 219 Fr North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Coverage] ILB Cooper Mallory 6-4 238 Fr Tucker (Tucker GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Mike] ILB Mayer Moser 6-3 257 Fr Northwest Whitfield ( GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Mike] CB Brayden McLaughlin 6-0 185 Fr Loganville (Loganville GA) 1.5 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] CB Terrell Edwards 6-2 171 Fr Pope (Marietta GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] FS Dillon Oates 5-11 197 Fr Schley County (Ellaville GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] SS James Giordano III 5-11 192 Fr Warner Robins (Warner Robins GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] The top class in the Sun Belt is large and fairly talented as well. The Eagles scooped up too giant receivers to hold down the group for years to come. Trevor Hobbs will be tough for every corner in the Sun Belt with his monstrous 6-5 frame and Daniel Tinsley isn’t much smaller coming in at 6-4. They also picked up two bookend tackles in 4.0* Marlon Warren and all-name team candidate Captain Diggs-Lundy. Georgia Southern was very defense-focused this class. They picked up a 3.5*+ at every position, meaning this unit will be rock-solid in a few short seasons. OLB Andrew Dasilva has a strong chance to start immediately with current starter Tyron Bonilla heading towards graduation. Lamont Pryor has a chance to crack the starting rotation, but that’s more of a long shot. They also were able to keep DT Mohamed Dickerson in-state, keeping him away from SEC foe South Carolina. This class is very well-rounded, so I feel there’s a good chance we’ll become familiar with most of these names over the coming seasons. @TheWritingWaffle Texas State Conference Rank: 4 National Rank: 86 ATH Kareem Ware 6-0 226 Fr Bryan (Bryan TX) 1.0 of 4.0 [Hybrid] RB Jake Butcher 5-6 207 Fr Roma (Roma TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Power] WR Miguel Madrigal 5-10 193 Fr Robert E.

The Bobcats added two other solid receiver options: Bart Oreilly is the kind of guy who can make an impact right away, and Shia Gold should be solid after developing for a few seasons. The offensive line is getting a couple of immediate upgrades in tackle Brody Reagan and guard Julius Stern. Texas State also got solid guys at every level of the defense. 4.0* defensive end Gerald Johnson will be a great addition to an offensive line that already includes Sun Belt first teamers Ryan Starling and Jeremy Spears. Will linebacker Chris Mullins and FS Joshua Oglesby will both be relied upon in a few seasons. The Bobcats’ future continues to look bright with two solid classes in a row. It’s hard to believe we won’t see these guys at the top of the Sun Belt West at some point in the next few years. @rabidsnowman Louisiana-Monroe Conference Rank: 5 National Rank: 88 QB Hudson Price 6-7 192 Fr Roscoe (Roscoe TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pocket] FB Javorius Finney 5-10 206 Fr Northland Christian (Houston TX) 2.5 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking] WR Miguel Vargas-Jimenez 6-0 223 Fr Acapulco ( Mexico) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] WR Vic Parrish 6-1 226 Fr Rayville (Rayville LA) 2.5 of 3.0 [Target] OT DeSean Rice 6-3 278 Fr St. Joseph (Brownsville TX) 2.5 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Jonas Guinn 6-3 307 Fr Franklinton (Franklinton LA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] OG Philip Jackson 6-6 274 Fr Rising Star (Rising Star TX) 3.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OG Kasper Andersen 6-1 326 Fr Aarhus ( Denmark) 2.5 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] C Arno Degenaar 6-1 303 Fr Port Elizabeth (South Africa) 1.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] DT Brian Zaragoza 6-4 315 Fr Hahnville (Boutte LA) 3.0 of 3.5 [2-Gap] DT Lese Polumanialu 6-4 283 Fr Mandeville (Mandeville LA) 1.0 of 3.5 [2-Gap] OLB Christian Walker 6-2 227 Fr J.S.

There was a clear emphasis on bringing guys in that could play and make an impact right away. Offensive guards Phillip Jackson and Kasper Andersen are players that will be immediate upgrades for the Warhawks in the trenches. Defensively, there are multiple immediate impact players: DT Brian Zaragoza, OLB Christian Walker, and JuCo stud ILB Reece Matthews. While all will likely be starting, Matthews will be an absolute force for the Warhawks these next two years. In the secondary the Warhawks nabbed CB Adrian Joyner and SS Odel Goins who project to be solid starters. If it weren’t for freshman starter FS Lamont Brooks having a breakout year, incoming recruit Buster Myles could have a chance at starting, but looks to just be a steady backup at this point. Overall, this was a very good class for the Warhawks, as they’ll be making an impact from 2023 all the way until they graduate. @jared2001usa Georgia State Conference Rank: 6 National Rank: 92 QB Miles Parnell 6-3 235 Fr Loganville (Loganville GA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Pocket] RB Wendell Simpkins 5-9 175 Fr Hatton (Town Creek AL) 1.5 of 3.0 [Speed] ATH Aaron Piper 6-3 245 Fr Wayne County (Jessup GA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] WR Bill Myers 6-0 220 Fr North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Target] WR Shawntez Monroe 6-2 167 Fr North Atlanta (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Speed] TE Matthew Hanna 6-2 240 Fr Warner Robins (Warner Robins GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blocking] OG Jonas Rushing 6-3 305 Fr North Atlanta (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] DT Logan Purvis 6-1 281 Fr Northside (Jacksonville NC) 1.0 of 3.5 [1-Gap] DT Jamari Moses 6-2 297 Fr Seneca (Seneca SC) 1.0 of 3.5 [1-Gap] OLB Dontae Willis 6-2 234 Fr Irwin County (Ocilla GA) 3.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] OLB Amara Bennett 5-11 218 Fr Thomas County Central ( GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Coverage] ILB Ben Massey 6-2 232 Fr Putnam County (Eatonton GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Mike] CB Keenan Chavis 6-0 195 Fr North Atlanta (Atlanta GA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Zone Coverage] FS Brian Wiley 5-10 193 Fr North Atlanta (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] Georgia State picked up a solid class this time around, despite not having a coach for about half of the season. The best player in this class is also the most confusing. 4.5* athlete Aaron Piper is a great blocker, but seems a little light to be placed on the offensive line. It will be interesting to see where new coach AYoung21 wants to play him. There will be two spots opening on the offensive line that graded out as best in the Sun Belt in 2022, so it seems as though one may be Piper’s for the taking. 4.0* QB Miles Parnell is a nice pickup, but is raw and probably won’t see the field for a few seasons as Zachary Mattson will likely be a four year starter. Outside linebacker Dontae Willis a guy who should be able to step on the field and play right away with GSU losing current starter Jasiah Lovett to graduation. And while CB Keenan Chavis doesn’t look to have a very high ceiling, he will be able to step in and be a number two corner right away. Despite only getting 14 recruits, most of this class should see the field in their Panther careers, even if that just means special teams action. @AYoung21 Louisiana-Lafayette Conference Rank: 7 National Rank: 93 RB Hunter Spears Jr. 5-6 193 Fr LaSalle (Olla LA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Speed] WR Rakeem Brown 6-2 230 Jr Northwest Florida State College (Niceville FL) 4.0 of 4.5 [Target] WR Hayden Shanks 6-2 207 Fr Eden (Eden TX) 2.5 of 2.5 [Target] TE JaWuan Darby 6-5 196 Fr Farmerville (Farmerville LA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Receiving] OT Ned Murdock 6-2 288 Fr Baker (Baker LA) 1.5 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Omar Baron 6-1 274 Fr Huntsville (Huntsville TX) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] C Tank Smallwood 6-3 299 Fr Riverside (Reserve LA) 1.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] C Kai Avery 6-4 280 Fr Amite (Amite LA) 1.0 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] DE Benjamin Sample 6-6 269 Fr Brackett (Brackettville TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Contain] DT Alepati Aveau 6-2 317 Fr Goliad (Goliad TX) 2.0 of 3.0 [1-Gap] ILB Oscar Harkins 6-0 222 Fr Woodsboro (Woodsboro TX) 1.0 of 2.5 [Will] CB Terrell Small 6-0 181 Fr Rayville (Rayville LA) 1.5 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] CB DeSean Davis 6-1 170 Fr Hazel Green (Hazel Green AL) 1.0 of 2.5 [Man Coverage] FS Reshad Small 6-0 219 Fr Comanche (Comanche TX) 1.5 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] SS Jeremiah Willingham 5-11 215 Fr Eden (Eden TX) 1.0 of 2.5 [Man Coverage] P Daniel Switzer 5-8 179 Fr Metairie Park Country Day ( LA) 2.0 of 2.0 [Accuracy] Louisiana-Lafayette’s 16-man class looks to be pretty good at the top, headlined by JuCo WR Rakeem Brown. Texas State coach rabidsnowman put it well when he said “Brown is practically a TE playing WR. He’s going to be a difficult assignment for any Sun Belt corner to cover” . ULL signed a pair of 4.0*s to the offense as well. OT Ned Murdock has a good shot at starting right away. His competition will be 3.0* sophomore Peter Cook, so it will be interesting to see if coach Dr_Novella values more: experience or potential? Tight end JuWuan Darby is the other 4.0* who also looks like he’ll have a good shot at starting. Current starter George Green will be graduating, leaving the position open for Darby’s taking. 3.0*/3.0* RB Hunter Spears will be a nice game-ready backup for senior-to-be starter Raymond Herrera. The rest of this class is fairly underwhelming. There are a couple guys who should be solid starters at some point in their Cajun careers, but there are also a couple who shouldn’t see the field. Coach Novella will have to make the most of his high-end talent. @Dr_Novella Arkansas State Conference Rank: 8 National Rank: 113 RB Quincy Key 5-11 214 Fr Watertown (Watertown TN) 1.0 of 3.5 [Power] RB Peter Woodward 5-7 212 Fr Chalmette (Chalmette LA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Power] FB Nigel Stewart 5-10 241 Fr Lake Highland Prep (Orlando FL) 1.0 of 2.0 [Pass Blocking] WR Abe Levesque 6-2 174 Fr Copiah Academy (Gallman MS) 2.0 of 3.0 [Speed] WR Elijah Stephens 6-0 201 Fr Pineville (Pineville LA) 2.0 of 3.0 [Target] WR Quincy Yarbrough 6-1 218 Fr Mandeville (Mandeville LA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Target] WR Antonio Montgomery 6-1 219 Fr Central (Little Rock AR) 1.5 of 2.5 [Target] WR Brayden Riley 6-4 176 Fr Broomfield (Broomfield CO) 1.0 of 2.5 [Speed] TE Anthony Dunbar 6-4 213 Fr Marlboro County (Bennettsville SC) 1.0 of 2.5 [Receiving] OT Solomon McConnell 6-1 287 Fr William Blount (Maryville TN) 1.0 of 2.0 [Pass Blocking] OG David Eller 6-5 298 Fr J.D.

The crown jewel of the class is DE Malachi McCain who should hold down the defensive line for years to come. As of right now it looks like McCain should have a good chance to start in his freshman season. He could be joined by monstrous DT Ibrahima Spikes. With current starter Omari Chaney graduating, this behemoth has a great opportunity to jump in right away. The Red Wolves’ secondary will be rock solid for the next few years because of this class. Free safety Lamont Berry and athlete Javorius Eason look like guys that can step in and make an impact right away, while FS Roman Noonan and CB Hakeem Mayberry look like guys that will be good starters in a season or two. Arkansas State also pulled in a nice power back from Tennessee in Quincy Key. He should be a nice workhorse back for the Red Wolves after likely redshirting in the 2023 season. The rest of this class should provide nice depth for the Red Wolves as they look to remain near the top of the Sun Belt West. @Youngdunc15 Troy Conference Rank: 9 National Rank: 120 QB Theodore Bartlett 6-1 212 Fr Spain Park (Hoover AL) 3.0 of 3.5 [Pocket] RB Dillon Shaver 6-1 205 Fr Westbrook Christian ( AL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Power] WR Julian Warren 6-5 224 Fr Shades Valley (Irondale AL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] TE Lukas Harlow 6-1 204 Fr Warren County (McMinnville TN) 1.0 of 3.0 [Receiving] OT Wesley Westbrook 6-7 297 Fr Spring Hill (Columbia TN) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Jon Marks 6-1 326 Fr Whitefield Academy (Mableton GA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] OT Oliver Crook 6-2 290 Fr North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] OT Garrett Christianson 6-6 321 Fr Moss Point (Moss Point MS) 2.0 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking] OG Lukas Warren 6-6 320 Fr Prattville (Prattville AL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] DE Michael Stubbs 6-6 254 Fr Jemison (Jemison AL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] DE Adrian McNeil 6-6 259 Fr Lawrence County (Moulton AL) 2.0 of 3.0 [Contain] DE Warwick Dunbar 6-1 263 Fr Wenonah (Birmingham AL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Contain] DE LaRon Rouse 6-3 246 Fr Slocomb (Slocomb AL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Contain] DT Ronnie McClain 6-5 332 Fr R.E.

Quarterback Theodore Bartlett is the kind of guy that could step in and play right away, but with Jose Lynn returning for his senior season it seems unlikely that he’ll play his freshman year. Troy currently is not very talented at the receiver position meaning big-bodied target Julian Warren could see playing time immediately. Same goes for incoming mike linebacker Shawn Gamble. Troy’s top two ILBs are graduating, meaning he’ll likely have to step up. The Trojans got quite a bit better at defensive end, adding raw 3.5* Michael Stubbs and game-ready 3.0* Adrian McNeil. While they are used to different schemes, they are upgrades to what Troy currently has, so I’m sure coach Maverick is thrilled. Overall this was a really solid class for Troy. There isn’t really any top-end, pro-potential talent, but most of the class will likely make some sort of impact in their Trojan career. @Maverick Appalachian State Conference Rank: 10 National Rank: 133 QB Skah Brink 6-4 224 Fr Union City (Union City TN) 2.5 of 3.5 [Pocket] QB Brandon Moody 6-5 224 Fr Hertford County (Ahoskie NC) 1.0 of 2.5 [Scrambling] RB Ajani Martin 5-10 190 Fr Fairmont (Fairmont NC) 1.0 of 3.0 [Speed] WR Andrew Dawkins 6-1 209 Fr Cummings (Burlington NC) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] WR Dominique Mayberry 6-1 153 Fr Male (Louisville KY) 1.0 of 2.5 [Speed] TE Julius Person 6-0 243 Fr Lamar (Lamar SC) 1.5 of 2.5 [Blocking] TE Tanielu Fatu 6-3 201 Fr Thomasville (Thomasville NC) 1.0 of 2.5 [Receiving] OT Bobby Keller 6-4 278 Fr Western Alamance (Elon College NC) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Luca Warner 6-1 321 Fr Dreher (Columbia SC) 1.5 of 2.0 [Run Blocking] DE Anquan Bonner 6-0 266 Fr McCormick (McCormick SC) 1.0 of 3.0 [Contain] DE Dylan Madrid 6-6 236 Fr Jacksonville (Jacksonville NC) 1.0 of 2.0 [Contain] DT Amral Glover 6-2 295 Fr Schley County (Ellaville GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [1-Gap] DT Mateo Benson 6-3 309 Fr Calhoun Falls (Calhoun Falls SC) 1.0 of 3.0 [1-Gap] DT Jonathan Winslow 6-6 273 Fr Calhoun Falls (Calhoun Falls SC) 1.5 of 2.5 [1-Gap] DT Alan Burgos 6-4 292 Fr Coshocton (Coshocton OH) 1.0 of 2.5 [2-Gap] OLB Jayden Tillman 6-0 242 Fr Eastern Guilford (Gibsonville NC) 1.5 of 3.0 [Coverage] ILB Kayden Whitfield 6-1 216 Fr Grady (Atlanta GA) 2.5 of 3.5 [Will] ILB Adam Kirk 6-3 214 Fr Lake Highland Prep (Orlando FL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Will] CB Hakeem Redd 6-0 185 Fr Dreher (Columbia SC) 1.0 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] K Jack LeBlanc 5-7 200 Fr Orangeburg-Wilkinson (Orangeburg SC) 1.0 of 3.0 [Power] LS Shane Block 6-2 267 Fr North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Traditional] As is the theme for a lot of Sun Belt teams, there isn’t much top-end talent in this Appalachian State recruiting class. Quarterback Skah Brink is a really nice pickup, but he will have to battle current starter Hernando Cortez and Connecticut transfer Kareem Witherspoon if he wants to be the starter right away. Inside linebacker Kayden Whitfield should be a day one starter if Zach McNeal stays at OLB in 2023. Ajani Martin could start at tailback from day one as their current top two running backs are graduating and the next best on the roster is just a 2.5*. Dawkins should be a solid receiver after a year or two of development. This class should be slightly concerning to the Mountaineer faithful as they were able to reel in just three 3.5* players with the rest being 3.0* or below. Hopefully the next App State head coach will be able to make the most of the least talented class in the Sun Belt. @ Someone please apply
  18. About where I figured I'd be
  19. Hard to be upset with this result. I knew I wouldn't be able to stop both Thibodeaux and Flowers and I didn't really stop either. My offense played alright given the circumstances. GG

  21. Congrats @Dr_Novella! While the loss stings, winning two conference championships in a row is a huge deal. Best of luck in your bowl game!
  22. Great write-up. I'll be very surprised if this game is decided by more than one possession for either team.

    This seems like a much better option
