What To Do With Carroll And the Captaincy?

Would be a bit awkward to bench your captain, so do they trade Carroll now? Find a way to get them both on the field at the same time? Move Edu back to CB since we're in need of a veteran CB...

William Fuller Decommits

Hopefully this is the end of the defections, but I guess we'll have to endure another wave after the season is over..

Khairi Fortt to Cal

I guess add him to the list.. didn't know he visited Cal last week

Ross Douglas De-commits

11

That makes 2 in 2 days... Hopefully this doesn't start a wave of de-commitments but with the sanctions coming down I guess some attrition is to be expected. Hackenberg said that he would only consider leaving if it was a lengthy bowl ban (what his notion of "lengthy" is I guess we'll find out soon enough).

4 Star OG Mangiro to Announce Sunday

15

Scout premium subscription needed, but Angelo Mangiro is set to announce on Sunday, and its down to Rutgers, (s)Pitt, Ohio State, and Penn State. I've been reading around the dis-reputable rumor sites and we seem to have a pretty good shot at this kid. Consider that Neither Pitt nor Rutgers has the Prestige PSU has, and OSU is flush with high quality interior O-lineman already in this class and seems to be wrapping up their efforts (they're currently at 17 commits I believe).. and he is one of only a very few PSU O-line offers, which I would imagine means we've been on him pretty hard. Already met with JoePa (Italian roots angle) prior to announcing his final 4, and I gotta say I like our chances. I'd wager its down to RU and PSU for his committment... just guessing... P.S. No premium content was divulged in this post

Its a link to a premium article, so you can read it if you are a member. If you aren't, you can still read the 1st line which says what you need to read... Senior CB Devin Fentress will not be returning for his final year of eligibility. While not crippling, it certainly doesn't help the already shallow depth at that position....
