picks up an offer from Notre Dame. Bosch holds double digit offers from some of the top programs in the country.
Michigan will land this guy.

I think an OL class starting with LTT Bosch and Fox would be a top notch class.
At this point, I believe Michigan, Stanford and Alabama are his top three in no particular order.

That would be awesome.

Steve, am I just dreaming when I think of a potential OL class of Pocic, Bosch, LTT, and Fox? Is that realistic at all?
Anything is realistic in January of the preceding year...it is kind of me and my hopes of the Redskins to the Super Bowl...
I would say the odds of all three Illinois OL going to the same school are slim to none.
Dream on playa'! Nothing wrong with that my wish list is Elmer, Pocic, Bivins, and Bosch.. The Bosch offer is a little confusing. Our new OL coach had offered him at Tennessee and immediately offers once he gets to ND. Bosch had been expecting an offer for months. Will be interesting to see if Warriner offers him at tOSU, seeing how he wasn't sold on him while OL Coach at ND.
How many OL do you guys think you take next year?
4 or 5
As many as possible, you can never have too many good OL. We could use another tackle this class (unless we get Diamond) or a center.
I think the main positions we need are CB, HB, and WR.
Damn, you guys will be stacked if you take that many. How bare was the position before the "12" class? We probably are looking at 3/4 OL. Unfortunately we will more than likely have a pretty small class next year.
We currently have 2 scholarship OTs, 4 OGs, and 2 OCs.
Wow, those are some low numbers.. It makes sense now.. We just offered Hunter Bivins, have you offered him yet?
I saw him wearing a Michigan sweatshirt recently, fwiw.
It is terribly thin.... Lose 4 more after this season... Lewan and Schofield will be the only 2 with playing experience that will be around in '13.... Need 5 next year as well... Need a couple of TRUE OTs... OL is going to be a major focus for this staff... Won't be this lucky with lack of injuries on the OL like they were this past year.
Hopefully Diamond commits and we can get Tillman. Shane and co would be set!
That would be an ideal start to things... I think the OL has gotten much stronger in terms of quality depth but they need options as all of the kids will not turn out to be capable starters.... They all do look the part of big and nasty on the field though... Great start of offensive line recruiting by Hoke and staff.... Now we get to see how good Darrell Funk is... I suspect he is great.
I dont get the vibes from Pocic that I get from the other 3, the coaches have put themselves in a great position for 3of4 IMO
I think we take at least 5, maybe 6.
Not yet, but OSU has. My guess us we will at some point. LTT clearly is our #1 target, then IMO Bosch & Fox. I think it comes down to Bama and us for LTT and you and us for Bosch. After that, Pocic is a possibility. So is Raulerson and maybe Bivin. If you guys do not have a great year and it looks like BK's seat is heating up, I also believe we will reach out again to Elmer.
Elmer didn't commit to Kelly. He committed to ND. I don't think there is anyway that Elmer doesn't go to ND.
I think we'll land Fox and LTT, we also have a great shot at Bosch and Pocic but Raulerson is all Texas and I don't see us going after Bivin(he wants to decide before his senior year and we haven't gotten involved yet).
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
With the schedule we have I'm predicting another 8-4 season. I could see us only winning six games, or if the new QB steps in and sets the world ablaze possibly 10 W's. USC and OU for sure losses. UM, MSU, Stanford, BYU, Miami probably at least two L's in here. BK's job will be safe all signs are pointing to 2013 as a make or break year for BK and ND..
