    I think this young man may prove to be good. He's really grown a lot fast if he's now 6'4" & 205 lbs, he was 6'11/2" and 180 in what I saw measurement wise.

    He has a nice delivery, good accuracy, good range, agility and decent speed in the 8 min film clip I saw. Of course, he is playing a relatively low level of competition, but he appears pretty good.

    If he's a leader and can draw others to him, like Corral did, that would be wunnerful.

    He played quite a bit of DB and some RB early in high school. He's still learning the position.

    He'll help pull in some studs that's for sure. Along with Sanders and Mycah Pittman we will have a big time class.

    He's not recruiting "afraid", that's what I'm loving about him and this staff.

    Mac didn't seem to host top talent hardly at all.

    Dan and staff are everywhere collecting stars like we collected soda bottle caps in the 90's.

    Eager to see what he does in camps and throughout his senior season. I know it's early but I can't help wondering why he's not a top 10 DT QB.

    Yes Strange, after rewatching his film I was really surprised at how much better he looked to me the 2nd time. He appears like a more powerful and accurate thrower than Emory Jones and a quicker, more elusive and more powerful runner. Admittedly, he's playing against relatively small school competition (like Keyvonne Lee), but somehow, I don't think that detracts much from what you can perceive.

    Is it just that he hasn't attended many camps?

    Mullen has now bested Meyer for both Joneses. I love it. Meyer can recruit, but Dan's got his number.

    I don't want to downplay with win, Mullen got his guy and that's a good thing...BUT it's not clear whether JJ had a commitable offer from Urbs. I haven't seen it reported either way, which generally means it wasn't commitable.

    Then playing for us should be a smooth transition.

    Does anybody know if he is known by the safety Nick Cross who is visiting us from Maryland? They have similar visits lists.

    Are you suggesting mdf that before he committed I looked at him differently than after he committed?

    That's certainly possible, but if you've observed observational phenomena a lot, you quickly see that the 2nd time you view something, you see a lot more than you did the first time, and the same is true the 3rd time, although after that, the gains drop quite a bit.

    From an experience perspective, it's like when you travel, hike, canoe, boat, etc. to a new place, on the way up, things take forever because you are integrating the environmental factors into your experiential network. When you come back, it always takes a lot less perceived time, even if you are returning upstream or uphill, because you can now focus on specific phenomena along the path rather than attempting to integrate everything.

    I have always been more Spok-like than most humans (my nickname in HS), but, unbiased observation is an utter fallacy, so, I'm sure there was at least a little O&B shading in that 2nd viewing. One thing I've never seen in my viewing is when a kid decommits and chooses elsewhere do I get the Sour Grapes perspective. I continue to see what I saw initially. Evidence of less bias than most.

    I agree, I was just making a funny...I like this kid a lot and fully expect him to be a solid 4 Star and a good fit for what dan wants to do..

    Agree. Watched some of his film. Weird throwing motion, but it’s compact and accurate, even when rolling out. No need for a windup - plenty of arm strength. Showed nice touch on his passes. Very decisive runner. Plants his foot and takes of. Pretty good speed too.

    Looks very promising.

    At 6'4" 205 already, he very well may show up on campus ready physically to play as a Freshman. could grow into a Beast.
