Starters
QB Dontarrious Foster 6-0 219 Sr Navarro College (Corsicana TX) 4.5 of 4.5 [Hybrid]

OT Brian Vandyke 6-7 315 Sr J.S. Clark (Opelousas LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking]

OG Brian Looney 6-5 328 (Sr) West Monroe (West Monroe LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking]

C Julio Vargas-Cano 6-1 267 (Sr) Hillsborough Community College (Tampa FL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking]

DE Roger Beltran 6-6 240 (Sr) Richwood (Monroe LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blitz]

ILB Kameron McClain 6-1 240 (Sr) Comanche (Comanche TX) 4.0 of 4.0 [Mike]

CB Avery Broughton 6-0 191 (Sr) Northwest (Opelousas LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Man Coverage]

 

The 2024 senior class will look to lead one of the most talented teams in the country to a repeat appearance in the College Football Playoffs in 2024. While not the most talented class to graduate on the bayou these seniors will provide invaluable experience to the many younger players on the field as four of the eight starters have been with the team through two prior playoff seasons (2020 & 2023). Individually all eight starters have unique paths to starting in Baton Rouge from Brian Vandyke who has started at either the right or left tackle spot for every game the Tigers have played since he arrived on campus to Julio Vargas-Cano who transfered from JuCo in the 2022 class and redshirted in 2023 to get a starting chance with the Tigers in 2024. Foster joined Van Dyke in the 2022 JuCo class but was able to unseat the incumbent starter Jamel Woodson in preseason camp. Brian Looney and Kameron McClain both have been four year starters after a redshirt season while Roger Beltran and Avery Broughton has bounced between being starters and being rotational players since their redshirt season.

WR Maurice Redmond 6-1 198 (Sr) Haughton (Haughton LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Target]

SS Kingsley Jackson 6-0 196 (Sr) Jefferson Davis Community College (Brewton AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Man Coverage]

CB Brian Webb 6-1 176 (Sr) Albany (Albany LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage]

 

In addition to the loss of eight starters, the Tigers will lose three key contributors who will all need to be called upon if the Tigers are to make another run in the SEC and in the playoffs. Redmond has been a reliable third or fourth option at WR for the Tigers for multiple years including over 500 yards receiving and 7 touchdowns in 2023 and will look to increase those numbers in 2024 with the Belitnikoff winner Jarvis Heard headed to the NFL. Kingsley Jackson has been one of the most standout defensive performers on the Tiger defense despite playing sparingly as a hybrid Safety/Linebacker for the Tigers and the LSU staff has loved his ability to come onto the field and make plays. Finally, Brian Webb will get his first chance at significant reps for the Tigers in the 2024 season as the switch to a primarily zone defense will have Webb playing as an outside CB in nickle packages.

Starters:

OLB Myles Hunter 6-4 241 (Sr) Willow Canyon (Surprise AZ) 3.5 of 3.5 [Blitz]

QB James Harvey 6-5 216 (Sr) St. Martinville (St. Martinville, LA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Hybrid]

 

Yes. This is how young this team is. We have three starting seniors and only one is a player that was apart of the roster generated in 2021. However, let me talk about Myles Hunter and James Harvey, as they have been bright spots on a team that was considered as one of the worst teams in the conference in 2021. However, the class itself has come a long way. Two bowl appearances and holding one of two bowl wins in the Sun Belt all-time (2021 New Orleans). I'm gonna miss the days of fielding a subpar FCS team and pulling wins out the ass. However, the future is now for this team, and this class has been a great base for what's to come in the future. Even when about 80% of the class is sub 2.5s.

 

Impact Players:

QB Jamel Woodson 6-1 224 (Sr) Central Catholic (Morgan City LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pocket]

ILB Reece Matthews 6-2 249 Sr Wallace State Community College (Hanceville AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Mike]

 

Alright, first off, thanks LSU for the QB. Jamel Woodson is gonna work well in the system that ULM runs, and will hopefully will have better production than James Harvey did last season (27 TDs, 13 INTs for 3499 yards) and make a run in the conference. I'm hoping that he performs, however if the going gets tough, that Harvey might have to step up. Also, now, the leader of the defense. The Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year in 2023. I would be excited if he managed to make some noise on the national level, however, I think Matthews will be ready for the next level in the NFL.

 

Rest of the Senior Class:

RB Joseph Cato 5-10 180 Sr Ponchatoula (Ponchatoula, LA) 1.0 of 1.0 [Power]

WR Matthew Green 6-4 173 Sr Coffee (Douglass, GA) 1.5 of 1.5 [Target]

Hawaii, for the first time under my tutelage, has a group of SRs with TONS of experience. This class is significant because the (SR) are all from my original 2020 RS group after taking the :hawaii: job. Hickman and Riley were brought in as recruits later. Every single player in the list was a starter last year and the previous. 7 of them started the 2021-2023 seasons so there's a huge amount of starts in this list. For comparison the (10-3) 2023 squad had 4 only SR starters and 2 were multi year guys. 

 

We lost our 4 year starting QB so if the Warriors want to hit the 10 win mark for the 5th consecutive year, it'll be up to their leadership to take us there, particularly Fraser, Mulinu'u, and Lamb offensively. Bonds is likely a 1st rounder along with a shot for Bentley/Cox to get picked up in the NFLHC draft as well. 

 

Starters
RB Chris Fraser 5-6 199 (Sr) Mid-Pacific Institute (Honolulu HI) 4.5 of 4.5 [Power]
WR Lahahana Mulinu'u 6-1 162 (Sr) Mid-Pacific Institute (Honolulu HI) 4.5 of 4.5 [Speed]

The Best 3.0 in the country

DE George Blackman 6-2 239 (Sr) Deer Park (Cincinnati OH) 3.0 of 3.0 [Contain]

 

I wish I could make you a 4.0 just to see what you'd do in the NFL, cause you tear it up sometimes and I wish you could do it more.

Key Players

WR Deontray Clay 6-0 226 Sr Cooper (Cooper TX) 5.0 of 5.0 [Target]

  • Clay is the star of the group. One of the most accomplished (if not the most) WR in CFBHC history, Biletnikoff winner, Burlsworth winner, 1st team All-American, only player to lead CFBHC in receiving twice. Still amazed he returned for his senior year. He was everything I hoped for when I got him as a 2.5/5.0 croot, an instant top-flight WR for McLean. He has averaged over 7 recs, 100 yards, and a TD per game during his time here. 

WR Darius Watkins 5-11 168 (Sr) Denison (Denison TX) 4.5 of 4.5 [Speed]

  • Watkins has been Clay's vice-president during their 4 year tenure. Clay/Watkins has been the tandem since they were freshman. A stud in the slot, Watkins had 30 TDs in his first two seasons before dropping off a cliff last season, seeing his production halved despite the offense and his role being the same. He has to prove this season that his early production was not just a product of McLean.

OT A'Shawn McNair 6-5 262 (Sr) DeLeon (DeLeon TX) 5.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking]

  • McNair has been the four year starter at left tackle. The blind-side protector. Hard to tell if how much NFLHC talent he has but I know C-USA DEs haven't fared well against him. He will be hard to replace.

OG Marcelo Moon 6-2 285 Sr Kilgore College (Kilgore TX) 5.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking]

  • Moon came in as a JUCO last season, knowing that I would need to replace 1st round pick Raphael Brannon this season. Not much to say other than A'Shawn McNair and Marcelo Moon are cool names.

ATH Brandon Dawkins 6-7 268 (Sr) Floydada (Floydada TX) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blitz]

  • If Dawkins was a 5.0, he'd be a top prospect. He's been a stud. In his 27 career games, he's made 23 statsheets, 24 TFLs, and 27.5 sacks. He's very consistent and almost every box score in the past two seasons, I see him with a TFL and a sack. He lives in the backfield. With him being a 6-7, 268 lb blitzing athlete, he certainly turns heads. (For draft scouts, he's been playing as a 4-3 DE).

OLB Austin Talbert 6-3 222 Sr Central Carolina Community College (Pittsboro NC) 4.5 of 5.0 [Blitz]

  • This is actually Talbert's first season at Rice, played JUCO last season. Wanted to redshirt him but my 4.0/4.0 blitz OLB declared early so Talbert has to fill the gap now.

P Raymond Land 6-1 182 (Sr) Houston Lutheran North (Houston TX) 4.5 of 4.5 [Power]

  • A three year starter at punter, Land hopefully doesn't see the field much.

SS Joel Nunn 5-11 171 Sr Frankston (Frankston TX) 3.0 of 3.0 [Zone Coverage]

 

Overall, there is a lot on the line this season as I think we have a legit title shot. But I still have to figure out QB Benjamin Yates or else I'm not winning the C-USA. Also, there's a lot of players I'm excited to see at the next level. Despite most people thinking Rice has been this super-talented team beating the shit out of the C-USA, Rice has only had 6 players drafted in its 10 year history. Southern Miss has had 7 players drafted in its 6 year history. But now it's time (hopefully) for Rice to become a talent factory as I'm expecting to double the amount of Rice players in the NFLHC with this class. Going to be tough to replace the holes left behind.

My adopted son and my actual son, respectively. This 1-2 combo won a National Championship and is primed for another. They will forever be Redbird legends and I hate to see them go. Hopefully they get on an NFL roster.

Just 2 average receivers. They catch the ball good, that's all I can ask for. I shed one single tear for each of them. Not Redbird legends.

OG Robert Culp 6-5 309 (Sr) Sacred Heart Griffin (IL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking]

 

Just now realizing I'm losing 4 starters on the O-Line. That's not great. But what is great is this unit. Along with Jr OT Kieran Landry (4/4.5) this OL squad of ABSOLUTE UNITS should keep Wardwell upright and create holes for Boone. These guys are also Redbird legends.

3 new transfers this year. I'm excited to see how they do. They aren't Redbird legends (yet).

 

OLB Ray Bailey III 6-1 231 Sr Carlyle (Carlyle IL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blitz]

 

This is the only other Sr starter on defense and I don't remember if he played at all last year. Not a Redbird legend.

 

P Brian Leon 5-8 182 Sr Mt. Pleasant (Mt. Pleasant MI) 4.0 of 4.0 [Accuracy]

 

One time at practice Brian came up to me and said "You want to see me punt this ball over them there mountains" and he did it. Redbird legend.

 

PR William Goldstone 5-10 184 Sr Bloom (Chicago Heights IL) 3.5 of 3.5 [Specialist]

 

I don't think this kid has ever had a return TD, but he's still kinda good at returning. Not good enough to be a Redbird legend though.

 

There's another 10 or so seniors that are all backups. None are Redbird legends. This concludes my write-up on who is a Redbird legend and who isn't.

P Nico Lambert 5-7 158 Sr Glendale (Glendale CA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Accuracy]

 

 

That's a lot of talent walking out the door at season's end.  11 draft-eligible players, many starters and key contributors. 

 

The redshirt seniors were part of my first full recruiting class here, ranked #6 in the country.  It honestly does not feel like that long ago that I was recruiting these guys. 

I remember jumping on Garrett in Week 3 of recruiting because I sensed that the early battle was not that hot for him.  (My notes show that the top 3 after Week 2 were San Jose State, USC, UCLA, and that Stanford had been one of the Week 1 leaders.   In Week 3, I put 3 RPs on him, plus a scholarship, and took a lead on him, putting both types of visits on him in Week 5.  When UCLA took the lead back from me in Week 6, I put 10 (taking the lead back), 7, 6, then 14 points on Garrett the next 4 weeks to eventually sign him.  It certainly feels like times are different now in recruiting.  I can't imagine winning a 5.0 RB by nickel and diming my way to a signing anymore.

 

I remember that guard was so deep in California (and seems to be every year) that I grabbed Wynn as an extra guy, having already taken a lead on Perkins that was not being challenged.

 

In total, five of these recruits were signed after not having spent anything on them the first week.  (Garrett, Edwards, Wynn, Benjamin, Alaniz, along with a few others who I did not redshirt, and graduated last year)

 

Garrett is the headliner, having racked up 38 rushing TDs the last two seasons.  Having four draft-eligible offensive linemen all grow and now leave together is certainly bittersweet.  This group has been through a lot.  Losing three starters from the secondary will surely hurt.  Foreman had 7 INTs last year.  But now, with the season just around the corner, is not time to mourn the loss of this class, but be excited for what lies ahead.

LS Isiah Sims 6-1 245 Sr Northeast (Macon GA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Traditional]

 

Munnerlyn played nickel corner, had 2 picks and was part of one of the better passing defenses in the country. He's been replaced this year by a 3.5/3.5 (Jr) but his contributions won't be forgotten. Stoddard is set to be the starting punter after having been a back up in the past. He certainly won't be as good as Matt Leavitt was, but I hope he can be serviceable.

 

Clinton has been rock steady and not much more for his first 3 years on campus and is likely to continue that, except now he's the big name in the backfield. He might have to shoulder more of the load this season, but I think he can do enough given how strong our defense is. I'm not sure about career rushing statistics but he would be very close to leading most I would imagine. Tinsley progressed poorly to start his career, but performed well as a sophomore and has 1600 yards, 15 TDs and over 15.5 ypc in the last 2 seasons combined. He was awesome in the slot in 2022 and took a small step back playing Z last year but also had major competition with 2 strong true freshmen. Cuellar has been a consistent performer at right tackle for 3 years now, and DeLarosa was a big time JuCo signing and is now the best player on the Oline. Fontaine is a four year starter but never had exceptional production, probably due to the other standout players on defense. He and Hudson have been a tandem for 3 years now and play an underappreciated role in the defense's success.

Starters

RB Israel Coleman 5-8 174 Sr Trinity Valley Community College (Athens TX) 5.0 of 5.0 [Speed]

TE Quincy Covington 6-2 229 Sr Tuscaloosa County (Northport AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Blocking]

P Angelo McCollum 5-7 179 (Sr) Minor (Adamsville AL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Power]

 

Shoutout to my JuCo boy Coleman, continuining the tradition that Auburn alternates between Junior College and "home grown" running backs. He'll be replaced by a split carry backfield and might be the last "bellcow" we see for Auburn. I'm not 100% sure what to make of him yet as this is his first season getting carries after being our third down back last year. Hopefully he can catch on at the next level as a change of pace back if nothing else, but I'm not ruling out a Durant-like season (just heavily doubt it).

 

Covington is a blocking tight end. Iunno what else to say about him. Hasn't seen a stat sheet since Marcus Black, where he caught 3 TDs in 30 receptions. A player who, unfortunately, fell by the way side in a change of offensive style. Deserves a shot to be a pro blocking tight end with his size.

 

I love Jason Siegel and hope he is an 81 or 82 overall NT. He's got the size and talent to demand double teams, opening up lanes for your linebackers. He's had 7 sacks in two years which shows me that he can really collapse that pocket and clean up when the edge rushes forced QBs to step up. I'm gonna guess an 81.

 

Donovan Hicks gets a nod to play DE in his senior year. He's quite heavy for a defensive end (at least on my roster), so I feel comfortable asking him to play the 3-4 and use his strength to push back the edge, forcing runs back inside.

 

Daniel Joiner had 4 picks and 5 defenses in 2022 when teams were trying to score on my weak strong safety spot and grabbed a pair when playing with Eddie Burks in 2021. He unfortunately went down hard in the Oklahoma game last year and exposed just how much our defense relies upon him. If there's a pro star in this senior class, my money is on Joiner.

 

Eric McCurdy was the Groza winner and All-American in 2022, so his pro prospects look good!

 

Angelo probably won't make a pro team. He's welcome to stay on at Auburn as a grad coach!

Apologies if there is any poor formatting! I was working on this here and there during my move and I’ve been stuck on mobile since Wednesday since our wall port is bad we won’t have WiFi until Monday. Anyways, here’s my senior class: 

 

The guys who only have the names of good players:

 

QB Marcus Foley 6-0 207 (Sr) Marlboro County (Bennettsville SC) 3.5 of 3.5 [Scrambling]

 

Foley is the biggest standout of the graduating backups. He was the favorite to start for the Wolfpack last season before redshirt freshman Luca Maguire beat him out for the starting job in camp. That pretty much ended Foley’s chances to win the starting job, but we are glad to have him backup Luca for his final season. 

 

QB Otto DeLuca 6-3 231 Sr Loganville (Loganville GA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Scrambling]

FB Luke Granger 6-1 232 Sr Cumberland County (Crossville TN) 1.0 of 1.0 [Pass Blocking]

WR Julian Stahl 5-9 185 Sr Watertown (Watertown TN) 2.5 of 2.5 [Speed]

WR Amir Gordon 6-1 196 Sr Castlewood (Castlewood VA) 2.0 of 2.0 [Target]

OLB Mark Nash 6-0 240 Sr Marlboro County (Bennettsville SC) 2.5 of 2.5 [Coverage]

CB Louis English 5-10 190 Sr Redan (Stone Mountain GA) 1.0 of 1.0 [Zone Coverage]

K Russell Meehan 5-7 176 Sr Richlands (Richlands NC) 2.5 of 2.5 [Accuracy]



The players worth talking about

FB Dillon Baxter 5-8 213 (Sr) South Point (Belmont NC) 3.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking]

 

Dillon Baxter is a stout fullback who should be fairly involved in the offense this season. 

 

OT Zack Oliveira 6-5 334 Sr Southern Guilford (Greensboro NC) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking]

 

This team’s strength is their offensive line and Zack is the captain of this unit. He’s been the starting LT for NCSU for all 4 years alongside Dillon Mooney. Oliveira is the one for NFLHC teams to have their eyes on as he is more talented and has the size and experience NFLHC teams desire for their offensive line. 

 

OG Dillon Mooney 6-6 322 Sr Riverside (Durham NC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking]

 

Oliveira’s right hand man all four years. Hoping for some good offensive line grades with the chemistry here.

 

OG Ali Timmons 6-6 290 (Sr) Lamar (Lamar SC) 3.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking]

Timmons hasn’t been a 4 year starter like Mooney and Oliveira, but he has played alongside them for the last 3 seasons. With Stuart and Horton alongside him the Wolfpack offensive line are about to play their third season together as a unit. I think that’s super cool.

 

DE Jamari Lloyd 6-1 250 (Sr) North Central (Kershaw SC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blitz]

2021 Stats: 19 Tackles, 6 Sacks, 1 TFL

2022 Stats: 26 Tackles, 8 Sacks, 5 TFL, 1 Safety

2023 Stats: 13 Tackles, 5.5 Sacks, 3 TFL

 

Lloyd was having great success under former NC State head coach ImposterCauster but his stats dropped off last season to some of the worst in his career. I hope he is able to regain his footing under me and is able to find his way on an NFLHC roster. 

 

DT Hakeem Brock 6-6 278 (Sr) Community College of Rhode Island (Warwick RI) 4.0 of 4.0 [1-Gap]

 

Emmanuel McDermott’s successor struggled in 2023 only making one stat sheet picking up 2 Tackles and 1 Sack. He will need to make more impact this year if he has any hope of playing professional football. 

 

DE Jadon McIntosh 6-7 245 (Sr) Paradise (Paradise TX) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blitz]

 

McIntosh has amazing size and is replacing a more stout blitz DE who was a fellow 3/3 (Sr) who raked in 8 sacks and 4 TFL last season. If McIntosh can replace half of that I will be happy this season. 

 

OLB Elias Altman 6-0 241 (Sr) Thomasville (Thomasville NC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blitz]

ILB Solomon Mahan 6-4 245 (Sr) Lee Central (Bishopville SC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Mike]

ILB Jake DeLuca 6-3 231 Sr Jacksonville (Jacksonville NC) 3.5 of 3.5 [Will]

OLB Rory Foote 6-4 223 Sr Asheboro (Asheboro NC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Coverage]

 

This quartet is playing together for their final season. DeLuca may not get much playing time this season due to the rise of DT Devante Ellison. Mahan has been the most prolific of the LBs leading the team in tackles all 3 years of his collegiate career. Altman went toe-to-toe with him last year and has been known to make some big plays in the past. 

 

CB Damien Chatman 5-9 179 Sr Rock Hill (Rock Hill SC) 3.5 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage]

2022: 4 Tackles, 3 PD, 1 INT

2023: 16 Tackles, 4 PD, 3 INT, 1 TD

 

Chatman had the best year of his career last season with 3 interceptions, one of which was a pick-six. He will be the #1 corner for the Wolfpack this year barring any setbacks from Chatman or increased production from his counterpart King Bolden. 

 

P Pete Hutchison 6-1 168 Sr Thomasville (Thomasville NC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Accuracy]

 

Another 4 year starter for the Wolfpack. Hutchinson began his career with the 3 worst punting average in the ACC with 37.8 yards per punt. He has since moved up to the 8th ranked punter in the ACC in punt distance averaging 39.9 yards a punt. He had another 1 point progression this season and will look to soar past 40 yards a punt for the first time in his career.

LS Russell Causey 6-3 242 Sr Rickards (Tallahassee FL) 2.5 of 2.5 [Specialized]

 

This class' redshirts were the last players recruited before I took over the program. They have been through quite a ride from the bottom of the C-USA their first year to the top last year. Unfortunately, they really haven't seen the field much except for Reinhardt and Holguin. Those guys have done some great work the past few years and are looking to help guide this young team into the future. Most of the class though, are back-up level players now, but I am thankful for them, because they provided a solid baseline that I could rely on as I build this team. Hopefully we can take another stab at the East and maybe the conference, but I doubt it due to having a bunch of playmakers leave this offseason to be replaced by some young bucks.
