Just for amusement purposes. Mine happens to be Brandon Smith. Kid is a player. Natural LB instincts.
It was hard for me to tell from his film. I wasn't sure if he was blitzing on every play or just making the right reads. However, I liked him too.
Gulla. Kid can kick and punt. Saves us two scholarships.
Happen to think Von Walker will find a role in the offense.. BOB's scheme brings out the best of the skills players and he'll get 4 years to play with Hack..
I agree 100% he could be a real; asset for us
Theres a lot to like from the class of RO, but outside of Gulla (who will see the field in his career), I'd have to go with Adam Geiger, Tom Pancoast and Brian Tomasetti. All 3 can really play and can really run. I have to watch film on Walker, but from the way people describe him, I think I'd put him on that list too...

WE ARE! And we will always be...
I liked Geiger too. The kid has amazing balance.
We actually got a lot of steals in the RO class... Norman is a player too on the interior of the line I think. I'd be interested to hear what you know who has to say about the linemen RO's... Terlingo was a kid that got interest from WVU, but never got an offer...
I was wondering when the biggest of all uglies thinks about those guys.
After what we witnessed BO'B do with #11, I think any of these guys could contribute. It doesn't really answer your question, but I admire all of these kids for wanting to come play here.
I could probably name around ten kids who have really solid film for a run-on. I think plenty of these kids will see time on special teams and a few will likely end up seeing real playing time at some point in their careers. It's a very strong group. Kudos to the staff.
Gulla and Seymour are the top two for me. Gulla will be a quality special teams addition and contribute punting and/or kicking during his time in State College.
With scholarship reductions, getting a QB like Seymour as a run on is huge. Who knows if he will ever see the field but he should provide quality depth at the most important position on the field.
Overall, most of the guys we got are good additions as run on's. It really shows the emphasis OB and the staff put into the run on program this recruiting cycle.
+100000 gemrich. I was surprised at some of the film. Lots of talent. Fitz will have them ready if they are willing to put in the work.
Fitzy has plenty of clay to mold... anxiously excited wooohoooo to see what he can do with these guys in 4/5 years
This may sound crazy but this is a serious question......would the run ons as a collective group be good enough to fill the Special Teams so that starters and scholly guys don't have to risk injury.
Are they good enough athletes and football players to do so?
I am just trying to think of a way to help avoiding injury from the scholarship guys.
I'll take a stab. On paper, these guys could fill special teams, but typically you want a few of your better athletes on special teams depending if you receiving/kicking the ball in order to create/eliminate the big play. With that said you need a few guys with better football instincts, speed, size, coaching and experience to do the above.
