Offense: Now 9 So Far, how many more?

[Updated]Northwestern will lose only 13 seniors to graduation this year, four from the offensive 2- deep. Yes, there is already a top player at running back, and 3 more vets poised to move up, but the Cats need to prime the offensive pump for the future. They've got several skill guys committed, like Liberty's Dan Persa but we could use more. Here's NU's offensive side recruiting so far:

Now the attention is on Prospects for the NU Offense:
First off, the Cats as usual, appear to be doing well with the "skill" positions -
  1. QB Dan Persa: Against Delaware Valley - Persa goes12 for 12 for 202 and two passing touchdowns, 12 carries for 114 and three rushing touchdowns. That's 300 yards of total offense and five touchdowns in just one game - Tyrell Sutton type numbers.
  2. RB Drake Dunsmore This guy is big for a running back - 6-3 and 215, but he posts a 4.6 40 time. He could become a slot back, or even a possession receiver down the road.
  3. FB Scott Concannon This speedster ran up all kinds of yards down in Missouri this year. No 40 time, but the media folks all talk about how quick he is toting the rock.
  4. WR Charles Brown He's another speed demon from Chicago - like Rasheed Ward - all they talked about was how fast Robeson HS's team was last season.
  5. TE Cameron Joplin at 6-5/245 appears to have the frame to move over to the O-Line as he develops but you also have to look at his 4.8 speed and wonder if he's another big target for the NU QBs.
You could also list a couple of guys targetted for the defense as offensive players: 4 star CB commit Jordan Mabin and 3 star Safety commit David Arnold have serious track records on offense, but have told Scout.com they expect to play defense.

Which leaves replacing the two senior starters on the offensive line as a big priority. So Far NU has a couple of big guys committed and a few more on the short list...
  1. OT Colin Armstrong a 6-5 270lb tackle from Benet Academy down in Lisle. His team didn't have such a great year, but Armstrong has the size to grow a bit, and eventually work into NU's O-line rotation. Armstrong is about the same size as Ryan Keenan
  2. OT Alex Netter [6-5/250] another tackle listed as a Tight End who is already figured into NU's O-Line, looking to follow in the footsteps of several NU alumni in the NFL who played tackle for the Cats.
  3. NT/C Niko Mafuli [6-3 295 4.9] Many services still show him as playing offense, but he's told us that he expects to play Nose Tackle at NU in a 3-4 defense.
So it appears that while the Cats have two linemen in the pipeline and a third who could play up front on O, they wouldn't be opposed to adding a few more to the Class of 2007.

Here's what Scout has by Position:
Guards - Northwestern could probably use an additional commit from a natural guard.
Ben Burkett apparently committed to NU last week - He fills a big hole in the middle of the line since he can play center and guard.

Mike Dykes Woodland Hills, PA, [6-4 265 5.00]
Still shown as "available," but considers himself a soft North Carolina commit.
It's a soft verbal," Dykes told Scout last week. "I'm still committed, but I'm still looking at my options.
He has Northwestern on his list of visits, and the North Carolina coaching change opened the door to a widened list...
If another school that I feel like is a better fit for me as far as football wise, academics, and stuff like that, I'll probably de-commit. If North Carolina is still the top school after [my visits], I'll stay with a solid verbal."
Dykes visited Ole Miss last wekend, but;
I definitely want to check out Michigan State, Northwestern, and hopefully West Virginia - Superprep
NU is on the list for a January visit to NU.
Kieth Otis Hubbard HS, Chicago [6-3 320 5.60]
Likes Pat Fitzgerald. Recently picked up an offer from Northern Illinois but is really high on Colorado.

The problem for him is that right now, Otis does not report an offer from either NU or Colorado.
Tackles - with 2 commits from players with the size to play tackle, NU apparently still has these two on their "short list."
Anthony Grosso Matawan Regional [6-7 290 5.00] Late Word, Grosso has committed to Northwestern...
Doesn't mention the Wildcats in most of the more recent stories, even though he has an offer and made an official visit last weekend.

Grosso is the size NU likes at left tackle [see New Orleans Saint's Zach Strief] and would have a good shot at cracking the 2-deep as a RS Frosh.

I am surprised that Rutgers hasn't offered this 3 star prospect from their back yard.
Tyler Doering Barrington HS, IL [6-5 285 5.3]
Brother of Iowa's Dan Doering, only Eastern Michigan appears to have offered. Doering has the size to grow into a really big OT, in some systems he's big enough to play right tackle now, but at 5.3 may be considered slow.

One evaluation [Scout.com] also is that he needs to get stronger and more physical. Of course he's probably suffering from comparisons to his big brother. Someone in the upper Div I will probably take a chance on him - maybe the Cats?
So the emphasis seems to be on adding to the O-Line, as the Cats only need to replace 13 scholarship seniors.

Of course there must be a few more seniors looking to move along, but there haven't been any official announcements as to which scholarship players might not return for their final season. Sufice to say that with 15 commits, the recruiting math suggests at least two additional seniors are leaving and maybe 2 more have already decided to move on.
