Any suprises with 2013 class? 

With signing day quickly approaching are there any changes to expect with this signing class? Any guys wavering on their commitment with the Hagen news? Any Shane Wynn type last minute decisions? Are there even really any guys in this class we are still in the hunt for that are undecided?

I think you jinxed us; rumor we are going to lose someone, not sure who.  Not one of the local boys.

Jacobi Hunter. Anyone know if we have a good shot with Swain? What's the corner situation?

Swain is still undecided, still has IU, Washington, Kentucky, and Tennessee on his list.  Says he won't announce until Feb. 6, which is signing day. 

No good reason or inside info, but I think our chances are good here.  Wonder if there's more than a coincidence in yanking Jacobi Hunter's offer and reading the tea leaves about Swain.  Swain looks like the better prospect, 6'4.5", 290#.

That's what i'm hoping. Nigel Tribune answered the corner question. Any Zach Barnes info? We need someone to team with Kenney to get after the quarterback.

I don't think Zach Barnes is physically ready to contribute right away due to his size (only 230 lbs and most teams are looking at him as an OLB), so I would agree a nice pass rusher would be great. We had Demetrius Hill but he's not going to qualify. So hopefully somebody like Mangieri or Shaw step up. But also, both Swain and Latham played DE in high school, so it's possible on rushing downs they step outside and a kid like Richardson moves inside. I think Swain and Latham provide enough athleticism (IMO, Swain is just as athletic as Latham), along with Kenney, Mangieri, and Swain, that our pass rushing should improve significantly this year.

Barnes is big on his religious beliefs and he's mormon, so I think BYU gets him if they've offered, which it seems like they haven't yet.
