I think that they are recruiting what they can get more than what they really want. If a bunch of 330 lbs NTs were within reach, they would grab all that they could get. But these are very rare individuals and the established programs snap them up. As for DLs they played this year, the DL had no size other than Wren Forman and Davidson. Once Forman had to be moved to back up Wren, Lole and Lea were the biggest scholarship players they could field. I would be surprised if Gonzales didn't go bigger in future classes. Note that Gonzales played a Soph (Forman) and a R-Fr (Davidson) to get some size in the line. In the future, I expect to see 310+ lb NTs and 6'5+" 275-285 LB DEs. And if Gonzales stays, that will lead to a lights-out defense.
