Dan Mullen on recruiting rankings: He doesn’t put a ton of stock in them, he disagrees with some placements, he cites Dak Prescott and Josh Robinson as examples of undervalued players, and he knows fans worry about stars. (Bob Redman, 247Sports)

Offensive line development critical for future: A young unit next year will dictate how successful the rest of the more seasoned offense can be. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)
