One of the best OL blocks we've had all year
Good news there.
Wouldn't the commitment to Texas Tech be more indicative of his readiness than his commitment out of high school?
Great stuff on all the links, Limey, but just say no to Helton. That is all.
Eh, my impression is that we are interested in him for the sake of attracting his father to shore up the OL. I would much rather target someone who brought a little more creativity to the offense and could take what we do now and expand it.
Me too. But I lost you on "what we do now" because it doesn't look like we do anything. For whatever reason(s) our offense didn't seem to have a theme. I get the feeling we have to redefine, retool, rebuild. Hope it's not that severe. And no, I have no idea what combo of coaches would be best for the job.
I was referring to the Boise concepts Pease brought with him: pre-snap shifts, unbalanced formations, jumbo packages, etc.
Sorry guys but can't get excited about somebody recruited by Florida A&M. Seems like we are grasping for straws. But what do I know I thought we go 8-4 this year!
You think we're going after an OC for an o-line coach?
I agree with one caveat: If grades were the case of the FAMU commit. If the guy had top-rated talent, but not-quite ready for prime-time grades this could be a real find. He could have gotten the wake-up call and started taking school more seriously.
I'm interested in him being recruited for TT style offense. Wonder if this is an concrete indication of a change in our O philosophy or just a coincidence.
He was ranked around 1ooth OT out of HS.
Well then let's hope he's improved on/off the field!
And Johnny Manziel was rated 39th QB.
"2-star" JJ Watt says rankings aren't everything, people. Let's try not to look at stuff in isolation!
And Coach Muschamp recruited him as a Safety.
I hope he's really good but I'm not going to let myself believe we stole one here. My post which you quoted was an answer to Gatorologist's post hoping he was highly ranked but had grade issues.
Doesn't really matter what he (or any of our recruits) is ranked. Matters what he can do.
From looking at the highlight clip above, I like his tenacity and his ability to lock up the defender when he gets his hands on him. I thought he did a really good job keeping his hands between the shoulders and locking his guy up... like Bama OL do well. He also does a pretty good job keeping his feet moving, and recovering when needed on guys trying to beat him with speed, as well as staying with blocks on run plays. His balance looks pretty good.
Of course, that's from a highlight film against his JC teammates. Hard to tell if he is agile enough, until you see him against that SEC athletes.
So he basically needs to be as good as Silberman this year
