Hot prospects: Should every committed player follow through with a signature, this group will represent a significant triumph for Coach Willie Taggart. In the wake of a woeful inaugural season (2-10), Taggart has landed a class ranked 41st, 42nd and 46th by 247Sports, and, respectively. Aside from a second quarterback commitment, Taggart addressed each of his needs, which are plenteous. Flowers, a powerful dual-threat QB, doesn't fit the mold of the play-action pocket passer for which Taggart's offense seems geared, but scouts insist his arm is way underrated. For a team mauled up front last year, the late additions of Knox and Hudson (a onetime Missouri commitment) were huge.
