  3. Hey sneakers. Would you care to share the video or scouting reports you have on this class. Surely with such an astute assessment you must have information not privy to the rest of us.

  4. We didn't forget Tony Bagtas but we were unable to get statistics on him before we put out the post. We will have an update for him in the next Recruit Roundup next week.
