Mailbag on the Mesa
@EdwardLewisASR on Twitter, post questions on the message board or put questions on ASR's Facebook page.Editor's note: Every Friday ASR Publisher Edward Lewis will answer some questions from fans about the Aztecs in this weekly mailbag. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org,
Krish: With only one basketball scholarship left for 2012, and three primetime recruits (Winston Shepard, Norvel Pelle, Anthony January) still on the Aztecs' radar, how do you see the rest of the recruiting cycle playing out? Do the coaches pressure Pelle and Shepard for a decision, or wait them out given it looks like January would commit right away with an offer? Now that we landed Johnson it is not nearly as pressing we sign another big, so does that move January up the priority list?
Lloyd: Why in the world would Norvel Pelle and Winston Shepard wait so long to commit as teams are running out of scholarships? Is it a question of qualifying academically; or do they plan on not going to college; or do they just have that many options that they don't have to commit before signing day? For the life of me I don't understand the delay in their respective commitments.
Wayne: There seems to be a lot of pub about RBs and QBs in future recruiting classes, but what about the beef? How are we set for O- and D-lines next year and beyond?
Fencecutter: Considering we already have 17 orals (and only giving 25 schollies in total) the recent influx of transfers, both announced and expected, there doesn't seem to be many scholarships left this year for the highly recruited guys the coaching staff is going after (Nico Siragusa, Zach Hemmila, Jonavaughn Williams, Chanceller James, Robert Lewis). Who is going to be left out in the cold?
Tommy: Do you have a prediction for the UNLV game this Saturday? I don't have the best feeling in the world about it.
