    MLB(#3) :4stars:
    6'1 238lb The Colony, TX
    Ryan Smith
    78 OVR (64% scouted)

    TAMU will be losing a lot of talent at LB after this year, and are looking to fill 2 spots at MLB specifically. Smith will be a welcome addition to a defense gearing up for the rigors of SEC competition. He is fast and strong, and what he lacks in open-field agility (65 AGI) he more than makes up for with devastating tackles (90 Hit Power). Great nose for the football (85 pursuit) Smith might be called upon to start as a Freshman and has the talent to do so.

    OLB(#9) :4stars:
    5'11 212lb DeSoto, TX
    Marques Singleton
    73 OVR (23% scouted)

    Coaches havent even seen all of Singleton's tape, but they've seen enough to offer a scholarship. Singleton pounced on the offer and a chance at early playing time. OLB was a position of need and Singleton provides a very Mike-like presence outside. A switch to MLB is not out of the question, especially if TAMU lands MLB Marcus Key. Key has the prototypical OLB frame (6'3 225lb) with more range and athleticism than both Singleton and Smith.

    Hopefully this guy will become something after a RS. Has 91 Acceleration which is a good indication that his current unscouted speed rating is going to be higher than expected.

    I completely disagree, I believe it tells you nothing. Still looks solid.

    Well if his speed rating remained a C like it is unscouted at now that would be a pretty big disparity.

    It wouldnt be a big disparity. It would just mean he gets to top speed faster. High accel doesn't mean high speed.

    I got one recruit:

    He went down a bit so hopefully he will progress well. You can't ever have too many OL and he may make the jump to OC.

    My class in the first file looked like it was going to be really good. This class looks like a big turd sandwich.

    This is a major position of need and while he may not be a superstar, he appears to be better that what we currently have waiting in the wings. We hope his hands turn out to be solid.

    Very good signing and looks to be a better than expected 3 star recruit. He will definitely be a starter at some point. We can redshirt him since we have a couple young starters at both guard positions but we like his attributes, very good size and athleticism.

    Currently battling Iowa for this :5stars: ATH. He can either play QB or CB, pretty cool to see these dual threat players. Most likely we'll have him at QB as his athleticism is hard to ignore. With a couple seasons to work on his accuracy he could be a problem playing in our offense scheme.
