K Tres just tweeted that Frank Burtons brother, Zachariah, is joining UD. He transfers from UVA.

He was recruited and redshirted in 2017 as CB, switched to WR in 2018 but didn't play.

Great pickup but Riah's been a given for some time. We've missed a couple of OL's in the last couple of days who have committed elsewhere. More on the table .

Hell Joe since we cant get hurts, can we go after Tate Martell from Ohio State?

Seriously though, could Burton fill in the roll Buck Jones played this past year?

Mr UD we don't need a QB..I believe we have the hard part covered..I truly do...In a minor bowl game at halftime in which one teams QB was killing the other team w their running QB,,,,Jessie Palmer said at half time "If you have speed at QB you are a Defensive Coordinator's nightmare".....

There sure are some good Qb's out there.... Hurts.Winbush, Martell and more to come....Some interesting kid bits I have picked is that Florida St under new OC Briles have become very attractive to Martell and other transfers.QB's would love to play under his system...UCLA is another team under Kelly that has become attractive....

I would like a RB for us....the most....We need some help...We just got some....But we have the hard part....

I would love to see Tate come to UD but that's a reach...far far reach. I do like the kids we have especially if we get some meat on Henderson.

RB and WR are the upgrades I want to see. A WR with great hands who can stretch the field vertically.

like the one down at Old Dominion Joe? I know HJ would drive down there and bring him back himself if he wanted to come back to Newark..... :D

Bring em all! We need a talent infusion...

I have always been a skill position guy, but it has slowly dawned on me and especially after watching the way the North Dakota State OL totally controlled our DL this year and everyone else really, that Iám now a fan of 2 to 3 big boys upfront to protect the QB and just make the opposition miserable...... bring on the Nasty Hogs......

Coaching, player development and saying all the right things will only get us so far, talent will solve a lot of our problems and we just don't have enough right now

Carrib- We'll never have enough talent to satisfy you. Keep your eye on our new transfer CB. I think he'll be in the starting lineup against the Hornets.

Henzone, Names please. HS seniors, JUCOs, and/or transfers? No open UD offers to any OL are currently shown on the Recruiting Board. Two OL verballed. Assuming that UD is looking to use more schollies this year on the OL, maybe UD is targeting transfers?

BHB-

The potential OL transfers we just missed out on selected YSU & EKU over the Hens. A WR selected Richmond. I need not list the ones that got away. More in the lake and we are still fishing.

Burton was an excellent pickup I'm told. Hopefully the others will be as good and the positions of interest have already been discussed on here but are not in stone.

HS kids are on campus as we speak. OV Weekend!! Official Visit.

It is as simple as that C...We are on the right path...I posted that Dakota's O line butters their bread....They toyed w us like a little brother....We finished 107th in total offense... We were an offense that got worse as the year wore on...What impresses me is Rocco did something about it....His 2 hires are brilliant... It will take time for the new offense to gel... I am very excited to watch it evolve..
