Kirby’s rad 2016 recruiting class hits the field for their first Fall Practice together today. And of the 21 figure 10 will get a start this 2016-2017 inaugural season for Kirby. Expecting to be 11-3 or even 12-2 but only 6 home games. We are deep with talented players although Mark Richt left the cupboard bare for both seniors and juniors on the 2-deep.
Mark Richt left Kirby only 2 seniors and only 6 juniors on the 2-deep – the # 93 “most” experienced team in America according to Phil Steele’s analysis of the most experienced 2-deep in the nation.
This is why this great first Kirby recruiting class hitting the field today for the first time together TODAY is going to feature at least half of them getting a START this 2016-2017 season. Kirby has no choice and no options.
It also is a great selling point for Kirby’s 2017 recruiting class that he started half his recruits 2016 as true freshmen.
12 first year players for us this season expected to START 10 of whom are true frosh:
Jacob Eason QB
Isaac Nauta TE
Mecole Hardman Jr. DB PR K-OR and I still say gets Rushes too
Charlie Woerner and I will predict as PR until Mecole Hardman Jr. settles-in
Javon Wims WR will be 1st year player for us Kirby gives start to too
Tyler Catalina OL 1st year player for us Kirby starts every game
Julian Rochester DT
Jaleel Laguins LB
Elijah Holyfield TB
Brian Herrien RB may Start at FB early
Ben Cleveland OG will get a start from Kirby this year too
Michail Carter DT Kirby did not steal him from Alabama at the very last moment this signing class to sit him down either
This is the # 7 recruiting class in the nation and next year we are at least # 3 in the nation so far with huge commitments up-coming. Mark my words. You’ve BEEN WRONG on this and I’ve been right on this. This is how Kirby builds depth. He gives these 12 guys a START this season their first season with us 10 of whom are true frosh.
So say I. Chauncey Manac has a shot too at DE as does Marshall Long at P and Riley Ridley at WR.
There will be no one redshirted whom Kirby just signed here. All the Freshmen play.
Kirby will start 12 first-year recruits for us this season 10 true freshmen as I have maintained all along.
Let the practice begin ! See you Saturday at 11 a.m. !
