    7! no we don't or are you counting fullbacks and tailbacks combined? Why you combining? they are separate positions.

    We have 4 scholarship running backs but two will be seniors next year, Randle and Smith. So I think we need to offer a RB next year. We do have the Madill kid who might play RB or could be a slot. He is a utility guy.

    If a kid with a lot of talent wants to come here( which he doesn't) than I'm more for it.

    Doubt he would go to Baylor and sit behind Lache Seastrunk for 3 years. He has been a workhorse since stepping on campus and had a huge spring game

    It's a numbers game. Gundy has been fairly consistent that of the 85 scholarships, that 42 are used for offense.

    When Fedora was hired, he had this basic scholarship distribution philosophy:
    OL - 18
    QB - 4
    WR - 13
    TE - 4
    RB - 4
    FB - 0

    After Fefora left, Gundy then took over and signed 2 Full Backs.

    When Holgerson took over, he was planning to eliminate the Tight End position, but he still used them even if they did play DE as well.

    Now Monken is here. He embraces the Tight End. Here are the actual scholarship breakdown for next season (In Parentheses are Seniors for this position):
    OL - 15 (3)
    QB - 3 (0)
    WR - 14 (2)
    TE - 3 (1)
    RB - 5 (0)
    FB - 2 (2)

    That means there are only 8 offensive scholarships to sign to replace Seniors (of course there could be other attrition). We already have a commit for a WR and an OL. It is widely believed Gundy will attempt to sign a QB. If we are going to take another Running Back, the scholarship has to come from somewhere. If the Full Back position is eliminated, then the numbers are good - the 2 Full Backs are replaced by 1 Running Back and 1 Quarterback...otherwise we will have less Offensive Linemen or Wide Receivers.

    I just don't get why anyone would think we are in dire need of runningback for 2013 recruiting class. We could get one and use one sure but 2014 year is the more do or die year.

    It's possible but I'd be surprised with the number of RB transfers A&M already has coming in. Brandon Williams has 3 years (unsure on his waiver yet) and we just landed Tra Carson (Oregon transfer) who will also have 3 years.

    This is theoretically true but I have my doubts. They just lost a once in a generation Heisman winner, first round receiver, 1500 yard rusher, and two starting OL. And we know from experience their defense isn't going to win them many games :)

    Doesn't matter. That encourages them to join; the thought process being that they can come in and start soon. What's there not to like about a program on the rise, as opposed to a program declining/not doing as well as past times? Like UT...

    I don't doubt that they'll get some short term recruiting momentum from all their success this season, I just don't know that it's a sustainable success. Baylor doesn't have any sort of football history behind it, if they go something like 5-7 or 6-6 they could have a really ugly January/February with regards to recruiting.
