This is nothing official of course other than my 'official' wish list for 2009 recruits. I'll try to make the table actually fit so you can read the full comments.
I have moved a few guys around and added a couple names.
Significant move up - Craig Drummond (4-star DE) has moved up two spots into the #3 hole. The move was made because I feel we have a greater need along the DLine and also I'm not as sold that we have a realistic shot at Wingo or Davenport.
Significant move down - Ronnie Wingo Jr (4-star RB/Ath). Wingo seems to have cooled on Minnesota and RB isn't as much of a concern with the commitment of Lipscomb.
Added - Xavier Su'a Filo (4-star, OL), Nolan Washington (3-star CB), Eric Stephens (4-star RB), Cameron Gordon (4-star, WR) and Taylor Lewan (3-star OL).
Dropped off the List - Dan Orseske (P) - committed to Gophers, Nat Berhe (S) - not as significant of a need and although I'd love to land a good athlete with a 2.9 GPA he just isn't in my top 20 for now.
