02.Sep.2016 Players to Build Around
After watching the game last night, which players do you feel will be instrumental in this rebuild?
To me, these skill players stood out on offense:
Villamin should be in the mix since he’s only a Junior, but he didn’t show up. I’d list him as a guy you can build around. Pierce and Lucas weren’t impressive to me.
What about D and OL? I thought Brandel played a good game.
A lot of the defenders looked good early on, but I wasn’t catching names. Aydon stood out (large, somewhat disruptive). Who stood out as a player/players the defense can be built around for several years?
On a side note, the OL in the pipeline aren’t very good. We all see OSU needs line help to get this thing turned around, but the linemen on the roster are not exciting. Brandel and Miki Fifita are the only nice looking prospects. Need at least 7 solid OL, and they have 2 once Andrews graduates. Hopefully Kearsley lives up to that 4-star talent once he takes the field. Bottom line is that we thought lack of a QB could derail GA’s rebuild, but it’s looking more and more like we have talent there with Garretson and Moran. Even Willard looks alright. But the lineman usually take several years to develop, and there aren’t many high ceiling underclassmen. Mackay and Wellsfry are two OL they got this cycle who might be thrown into the mix early. Beavs need to hit the JC market on both lines. Nicebeaver, any big OL/DL prospects on the radar?
