    HB Keith Dunlap (JR) - This season is Dunlap's first as the starting halfback. He is a solid back but has posted mediocre stats this season. He is averaging 4.2 yards per carry and has 4 total touchdowns on the season.

    WR Matt Harris (JR) - Harris played sparingly on offense in his first couple seasons but now is fourth on the depth. He has 7 touchdown receptions this season and averages 21.4 yards per reception. Next season he should crack the starting lineup.

    TE Alex Casey (JR) - Casey played FB his first two seasons before moving back to tight end this season. Before the game against Vandy he was quiet, but he added 2 receiving touchdowns in that game. He isn't spectacular in any ratings but is solid across the board.

    MLB Carlos McCormick (JR) - Took over the starting MLB this season and he is one of the better players on the defensive side. So far this season McCormick has 26 solo tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 1 sack and an interception.

    Other starters or key contributors:
    OT John Sands (JR) - starting right tackle
    CB Brandon Montgomery (JR) - reserve cornerback, will be a starter next season
    K Sean Cronin (JR) - starting kicker, career long 47 yard FG
    P Sean George (JR) - starting punter, 40.6 career average yards per punt

    Overall this is one of the least noteworthy classes for the Bulldogs under the current administration. This is also the only year that MSU finished outside the top 25 polls at the end of the season.

    Starters From Class of 2013: - 5

    QB #1
    Sean Henry
    6'2 233lb
    89 OVR

    Henry is the starting QB for the first time in his career and has played great. He is the best pure-passer we've had at A&M, and his career stats show it:

    38TD / 9INT
    70% COMP

    FB #43
    Larry Cruz
    6'1 255lb
    84 OVR

    Great lead blocker. Athletic and dependable in the pass-game as well. He has started since he was a true Freshman.

    LOLB #50
    Jamie Young
    6'4 227lb
    84 OVR

    Doesnt see the field a lot due to the dominance of Brad Harper and Donnie Watkins. He is more mobile than Harper/Watkins and will see a dramatic increase in PT next season.

    CB #27
    James Coe
    5'11 185lb
    85 OVR

    Has so far racked up 13 interceptions since his freshman year. Great corner. Only knock on him is his size, but he keeps himself in good position.

    FS #13
    John Webb
    6'1 192lb
    88 OVR

    Impressive stat totals for the FS who has started since his Freshman year. All-American status. 11 INT and 5 FF. Prototype player that has brought stability to the position.

    I signed a shit load of guys from this class here, let's see how they panned out so far...

    OLB Josh Sherman- Now a 76ovr RSSO, Sherman is starting his first year on the outside. He's one of our more athletic LB's on the team but so far hasn't made a ton of impact. I like his progression though so far.

    CB Curtis Williams- CUT

    DT Chris Marshall- A 76 RSSO, Marshall is a bit light for the DT position but he's become a decent addition on the team and stands as the #2 guy right now. He's really more of a 3-4 end than a DT IMO but we are trying to have the best guys on the field.

    TE Thomas O'Connor- I really liked this kid when we got him. A 75 RSSO, O'Connor is now starting and has the best hands on the team. He's a big target at 6'5" and is really becoming a favorite of Lucas. A nice find in this class.

    C Lionel Carter- Carter is a 75 RSSO and is the backup center.

    G Doug Butler- Butler is a 75 RSSO and is the 3rd string guard but may figure to start next year.

    WR Cliff Mitchell- Mitchell was a good solid WR with good speed but toyed with transferring after his 1st year. A 2nd year here and he wasn't happy with his role and finally transferred to Navy.

    CB John Brown- Brown (75 RSSO) is the slot CB and was beaten out by a freshman. He hasn't made many big plays yet for us.

    OLB Zach Turner- CUT

    OLB Alfred Meade- CUT

    RB Nick Bean- CUT

    WR Geoff Strong- CUT

    ATH Dan Holt- Holt is a 88 rated RSSO and is our best player on the team. He's been a two year starter so far and continues to impress. A big bodied FS, Holt hits hard and is a good playmaker.

    ATH Vince Williams- A JUCO kid (senior at 80) and starting at left end. Very athletic and can get to the QB...has 10.5 career sacks.

    RB Kirk Butler- Butler's a RSSO at 78 overall but hasn't really carved a niche out on the team as he's struggled to get on the field and is currently the 3rd string RB

    CB Jon Dean- CUT

    ATH Jason Hill- Now a JR (77), the 1st one from this class to make an impact for us, he started at WR out of necessity and has been nothing short of great. A two-time all-american, Hill has been one of the best players to come in the program.

    I regard our 2013 recruiting class as nothing less than a coup. We finished with the #1 class, with two :5stars: players, 10 :4stars:, and four :3stars: with a :1stars: FB mixed in.

    Studs of the Class

    :4stars: SO(RS) QB Patrick Williams #7 QB - 6'5 211 - 77 OVR to 86 OVR - 92 THP, 92 THA
    Second year as a starter. 3614 yds, 28 TD, 16 INT LY - 106-143, 1,522 Yds, 19 TD, 4 INT This Year - We don't have a ton of great weapons but Williams gets the job done.

    :4stars: JR FS Gary McKeon #1 FS - 6'5" 208 - 80 OVR to 86 OVR
    McKeon's career has been somewhat derailed by injuries and we wish we would have found a way to redshirt him. His Freshman season he had 90 TAK, 45 SOLO, 7 TFL, 5 INT, 8 DEFL, 1 DEF TD and a FF. He was hurt for the season early in the first game of his sophomore year, after making an INT. This year he has 49 TAK, 24 SOLO, 2 TFL, 3 INT, 3 DEF TD, 2 FF. He is truly the ideal FS in my opinion.

    :4stars: JR TE Sean Davis #3 TE - 6'5" 268 - 79 OVR to 86 OVR
    Texas A&M Coach MaxATX34 had a sizeable lead but a class limit to attend to and we irrationally kept chasing him because we needed a TE so bad. Max dumped him and we ended up with a dominant blocker (42 Pancakes, 0 Sacks allowed last year) and decent receiver. He's good for mid 40's catches and 6 TD per season.



    :4stars: SO(RS) T Anthony Brooks #2 T - 6'8" 295 - 80 OVR to 88 OVR
    Brooks is a highly rated guy who hasn't really dominated in the stats but is a solid player for us on the bookend. We drafted a guy for opposite Brooks in the #6 T Bobby Abrams (also 80 OVR) but the fugger transferred on us. With our best HB out we are considering benching Brooks in favor of T Michael Palmer, listed below, a better pass protector.

    :4stars: SO(RS) G Thomas Jordan #15 G - 6'2" 276 - 79 OVR to 87 OVR
    Jordan's a quick, capable and strong blocker who has tallied 13 pancakes while allowing 1 sack this season

    :3stars: SO(RS) ATH/FB Keith Clemons #54 ATH - 63 OVR UNSCOUTED to 79 OVR Fullback
    Clemons is an offensive oriented fullback who can catch and run. 83 SPD, 86 TAK, 88 TRK, 95 SFA, 88 SPM, 88 CAR, 73 CTH, and 72 RTE get him on the field. Bad blocking, specifically a lack of impact blocking tends to limit his playing time somewhat.


    Watch Out For

    :5stars: SO(RS) HB Dwayne Porter #1 HB - 6'0" 185 - 79 OVR to 88 OVR
    Porter wasn't that explosive or impressive immediately coming out, but has steadily improved. Next year he will be 90 or better in several important categories including BTK, ELU, SPD, ACC. With HB Kenny Bailey struggling to overcome a season-ending injury this year, Bailey may redshirt next season allowing Porter the chance to show what he can do.


    Other Guys

    :4stars: QB Spencer Keller - 77 OVR to 85 OVR - Backup QB has better physical tools but not as good of an arm as the starter. Very capable and will produce when called upon.

    :5stars: WR Paul Bolen - 72 OVR to 79 OVR - Officially a bust when scouted, he was pretty decent last year as the #2 WR. This year he's buried on the depth chart.

    :4stars: TE Chris Evans - 75 OVR to 83 OVR - Backup TE last year. Sitting out the season this year due to depth and a chance to start as a senior.

    :4stars: T Michael Palmer - 76 OVR to 83 OVR - Good pass blocker. May get a chance to show his stuff in the coming weeks.

    :3stars: WR David Jordan - 65 to 72 - Bench Fodder

    :3stars: DE Alex Williams - 67 to 75 - Bench Fodder

    :3stars: TE Shane Wade (JUCO SOPH) - CUT

    :3stars: G Harrison Johnson - 70 OVR - CUT

    :1stars: FB Dwight O'Neal - 69 OVR - CUT
