    Agree that corner is biggest position group question mark heading into the fall; the OL has been in re-load mode for awhile. WF has consistently recruited 3+ solid OL in each class.
    Agreed, Davis looked solid as a freshman but seemed to struggle this year at safety, was always a half second late. I bet heíd be better back at corner. Also think Dicks may move to safety from rover. Essissima was on the two deep the whole year but he struggled in the limited time I can remember, so scary to count on him potentially as a starter.

    If Iím the coaching staff my top priority is getting a grad transfer who can start at corner opposite Jaísir. Next priority would be an offensive lineman, ideally a left tackle. Neither sound like easy tasks.

    Why would Dicks move from rover? He would be the next in line when both Luke Masterson and Traveon Redd graduate. He has very good size, the perfect size for the position. I donít expect for him to move. I can see Davis moving to corner. He really has struggled, and if a younger guy steps up, that would be a smart move by the coaching staff. It might be a more natural position for him, because he did play corner in high school.

    Former Clemson QB Willie Simmons is the FAMU head coach. Good luck to Heggs. Not a bad move for a kid from
    Jax.

    Heggs to FAMU is a good decision. Close to home and an opportunity to play. Wish him all the best.

    JaSir starting next year? He was improved this year over last, but I hope he isnít our best CB option.

    Looks like he was a gamble that didnít work out. Hope we have some Frosh or incoming CBs ready to contribute.

    Great move from a Top 30 university to a Top 255 university.

    Stanford has 13 football players in the transfer portal. I doubt many if any of those potential transfers: a) will play in the NFL; b) will end up at a better school than Stanford.

    If my kid had a 4 year free ride at Stanford, would have hard time if he gave that up to get more PT at Colorado State.

    Not the case. Most of these kids have used up 4 years worth of scholarship and don't have the grades to qualify for grad school at Stanford. If they want to play one more year, they have to leave and pursue a masters elsewhere.

    At least 4 of Stanford's transfer portal athletes have not spent the 4 years at Stanford; so, for them, it's not a grad school issue. Also, there is no requirement that a player apply and get admitted to grad school after qualifying to graduate if they want to stay for their RS year. They can add a major or a minor to their Stanford degree.

    The idea that an education at Wake Forest or Stanford is required to enjoy a happy or productive life is laughable to over seven billion people. Heggs and players leaving Stanford happen to be in that group. They are in the majority by a vast margin.

    Yeah. Heggs will likely join the tens of thousands of successful FAMU grads who live in Florida.

    I guess I should have just gone to a shit academic school instead of busting my ass to get into and out of WFU. What a waste!

    Ja'Sir is a guaranteed starter next year and #1 CB next year. There's almost nobody behind him.

    If an education at Wake Forest was required for you to be happy and productive in life, it was the correct decision for you. Your values aren't the norm nor the model for the rest of the world.

    Iím guessing you arenít a WFU grad?
