Like the title suggests, coming on this weekend are two receivers Bud Sasser form Denton, Texas and Bobby Swigert from Louisville, Ohio. Seeing as we are losing both Menelik Holt and Chris Brooks to graduation this year with Niles Paul as a junior its important that we keep replenishing the talent level. What's especially important to the recruits after our three starters there is a lot of unproven and raw talent so there is a huge opportunity to get some early playing time.
Bud Sasser is a 6'3 200 pound receiver that has a solid if unspectacular SAT but is dominating on the high school level. Thru 3 games he has 10 touchdowns to his credit already and while they are more than likely from fade routes that take advantage of his size that is still very impressive. He has stated quite often that he will take all of his visits so he probably won't be commiting this weekend. Of the teams that are recruiting him some of note are both Arizona schools and from the big twelve Texas Tech, Kansas, Baylor and that columbus team ( from here on out I cannot in good faith to my soul call them by their school name. ) It should be noted that while the Sooners have yet to offer him he does have them listed as a favorite.
I have very mixed feelings about our chances of landing him, on one hand this weekend will be hard to say no to as a recruit because of the 300th sellout. On the other hand he seems to be waiting on the Sooners and they do have the momentum on the recruiting front. Our chances 30% if he commits this weekend as I see him as a soft verbal, 20% if he waits and 10% if the Sooners get involved.
Bobby Swigert is the other one and he stands at 6'1 and 175 running a very nice 4.47. He has narrowed his choices to 5 schools and oddly enough we may be the closest location, Boston College, Stanford, Michigan, Pittsburg and us. Its pretty clear that he has the brain power with those college choices so thats not in issue and as of right now we are the only ones with a visit lined up which really bodes well for us. It will be interesting to see if adding on some weight if he will still have some good speed. ( he is welcome to mine because I really don't need it ) Chances of Landing him 40 to 35%
