Bulls247 takes a look at the five most important signees of the Bulls' 2013 recruiting class.
Goof stuff, Kyle.
What about you guys? Who are your 5 pillars?
Good ones mentioned in the article.
However, just as important are:
Dominque Threat- watch this guy's film and you get excited. He mauls people.
Hall- same HS as Threat,
Senat- Immokalee pipeline and much needed size to plug up the middle.
Calloway- obvious and already mentioned
Nigel Harris- LB was a huge area of need. This one can run, is smart and is from a local power.
Travis Johnson- what are you thinking going to Tuberville?? Especially from a Jesuit kid.
Malik Brown- after missing on Johnson, would have been a great fall back at TE
1. White- QB is most important position in any system and was a huge need this year
2. Calloway- DTs are the literal pillars of a defense
3. McCray- Obviously a need position
4. Harris- just to be different than Kyle
5. Senat- same reasoning as Calloway
As far as the sleeping pillar, I think it's Johnny Ward. I have no idea why he didn't draw wider interest, but I won't be surprised if he goes down as the best CB in the class even if Robbins stays at the position.
I like Kyle's list, but I would switch Threatt out for Wright. Good looking OG prospect and we will need good OL to make the ground game go. Also, I believe that Nadelman will be considered a pillar of the class when it is all said and done.
Robbins will be an All American. He'll start from day 1 and a 6'3 190 pound corner with that kind of speed will likely be the best guy in the secondary because he is by far the most talented. Cooper says you'll see the guy on Sundays and I tend to agree. Though I think Ward is good, Robbins is just one of those guys. Bigger, stronger, faster, and better. I agree and listening to Taggart don't be surprised to see White line up as the starter in the season opener. I wouldn't cal just one guy a pillar at DT, I think that we've recruited that position so well it, being the position, will be a pillar from this class. I agree I think McCray is definitely a pillar but don't sleep on a guy like Tice. To differ a bit, I think Mayes is going to be monster. The guy is an absolute freak of nature. As my wild card I'll go with Hall the OT. If he develops like he should, at 6'4 330 he'll end up anchoring a line for some time.
3. Frosh DTs

I like the list! I have said before that I think Wright will end up being one of the bright spots in this class along with Mike White. Wright and White all the way baby!
