Johnson C. Smith football’s shopping list for talent, depth Golden Bulls need boost at QB and both lines

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina -- It’s never too early to go shopping.

Johnson C. Smith’s football wish list is simple: Recruit players who can improve on a 3-7 campaign, especially when it improves depth in critical areas like quarterback and offensive and defensive lines. Some areas, like linebacker and running back, are stocked with young talent that is putting JCSU coach Kermit Blount’s stamp on the program.

The following is based on observation of performance and classification of rotation players as well as long-term prospects. Each position group is assigned a recruiting priority grade from l (lowest) to 5 (highest).

Quarterback: 5
No doubt this is going to dominate the recruiting board. The Golden Bulls averaged 134.3 yards per game, near the bottom of the CIAA. Losing Jordan Lane with a broken leg in the third game set off a chain of events that highlighted the need for depth at the position.
