    Has offers from Kentucky and Jacksonville State. We pooh pooh his offer list, but those programs are improved from what they were ten years ago. Our team last year (and maybe this year) would have a tough time going .500 against that group. And how big will he be and how many stars will he have a year from now? Of course, there are many things that could transpire before he gets to Tech. Injury, might gain 40 pounds he can't carry, flunks out of high school, gets arrested, gets flipped to Auburn, wrecks his ATV.

    I’ve been enjoying your takes of late but man is this a bad one. .500 against the above schools? 6-1 would’ve been absolute worst case scenario against that lineup and the one would’ve been Kentucky and I think we beat them with Tobias. Troy lost to LIBERTY! Let’s not be ridiculous now.

    This kid has speed and should develop into a solid contributor.

    I looked at his tape and oddly he looks like the first stretch to me for GC..He could turn out fine but right now he is very similar to PJs recruits.A DE that has "potential"-- a good athlete but is way under-weight at 220.Even at OLB ,where he doesn't play now (so must learn), he is under-skilled.To start, he has to learn how to tackle.He won't be arm-wrestling P5 running backs down much.
    I wonder if some better guys may have backed off of us.

    LOL.......

    This kid is a project but he has speed and tackles well. I wish him well.
