    I'd say when you get a guy that has played for 2 years and started 11 games you can throw out the HS ranking. He may not be All-American, but he's had better production in 2 years than our overall #27 DE recruit (Clayton). Not sure he'll ever start for us, but we have scholly's to give and he's big and fast and adds depth.

    565 is 247Sports rank while 902 is the composite. I guess 247 thought of him more highly than other recruiting geeks. :D

    Who cares where he was ranked coming out of HS. Some players (most actually) mature a little later than others but when they hit their prime they excel...forget the past ...look forward like DJ Trump!

    I was just adding some back story because I'd bet most on here weren't aware of this kid in high school unless they were from his area but I agree with you.

    I like it. His body has gone through two full years of college conditioning, and he was at least productive in a Power 5 conference school. He will contribute.

    He's actually Will Grier. Continued use of PEDs contributed to his exponential growth spurt.

    Hell, this kid may start. He's a true SDE in this new system, especially if he adds 10lbs. Most of our DE's were recruited for 4-3 and are in the >255lb range. This kid is 270 and has made 11 starts. CeCe will be playing OLB, where he should have been all along. And some of the 240-250 guys (Zuniga, Polite, Clayton) will have to grow into SDE or move to LB (I think Clayton is up to 270+).
