The time between the arrival of the 2014 class and fall workouts gives Charlie Strong and his staff a chance to familiarize themselves with next year's group. It's also a great time to get up to speed at some positions of need.
Strong's first full class has 10 commits, and each provides solid upside and a good fit for what he wants to build on the 40 Acres. Overall, he's done well with eight months left until signing day.
But between now and then, the coach has some serious needs to fill. He has yet to reel in a commit at receiver, tight end, defensive tackle, linebacker or cornerback, all of which will lose major contributors after the season.
Adding some top targets to those spots and hanging onto the current commits at the others will be the goals leading up to the fall.
