    I’m early into the podcast , but I’m with you on this one Jason this is a hell of a wr class. Jordan Young, Harrison, Thompson, and Helton are all very good football players. In your next podcast could you talk about the QB position? I am a subscriber to Warchant and a poster made a very good point about WT maybe having trouble recruiting elite QB talent because of the fact that he has never developed a very good one outside of Flowers at USF. Could you give an early board for 2019 qb’s and talk about the depth issues/concerns for that position in the future?

    Also, what about linebacker? we’re thin there with only bringing in Gainer and not knowing the extent of Rice’s injury especially assuming that Xavier Peters will turn into a Defensive End type.

    Well Done and Very Informative as always Mr.Staples! Not intentionally you once again out Sourced and were more Accurate in your forecast of recruiting predictions. Warchant,Tomahawknation,Noles24/7 all were too confident on Foster.You called it! Another Great podcast.What This Staff Accomplished in a month is remarkable and Giving them a full year with some Success on The Field is just flat out scary what might be to come QB recruiting next year should not be a problem. Thanks again! will pass along to my friends. Go Noles!

    Why do you believe a group of 3* WR will be such difference makers? Highlights are great but nobody ever puts together a reel of bad plays. The same discussion is always on the not so optimistic side when it comes to other programs landing tons of 3*. The discussion is then about how those programs won’t win with a collection of 3*. I understand your evaluations are based on stars or recruiting rankings. But this class doesn’t compare to anything like Bama’s class last year. Stars or not. Not that it was being compared, but to say it’s the best in 15 years? Why? Great Pod like always, though. Thank you for your work.

    2011 also had Nick O’Leary, yes he was a Tight End;but he was expected to receive a lot. So if you look at it from the angle of catching balls,2011 was amazing. Also Greene should have been an impact player in your rankings, even at that time: he was as polished as it gets coming out of St Thomas under that old staff. So I would say 2011 was greater than 2015 if you’re considering the coach and the philosophy.

    Now in terms of this new class, 2018 I agree it has amazing potential if Jordan Young is for real,and there isn’t some reason we don’t know about yet that he was overlooked for a while.

    Could you go over some was that FSU could potentially get committed or have a shot at for 2019. Great job on the podcast, keep it up!

    The star ratings on these guys don’t match their electricity. This WR group is only the beginning. Great pod! I would love for you to delve deeper into each coach as a person, recruiter, and specialist. I enjoyed your breakdown on Harlen.
