    Wow is right. Our staff needs to do what it takes to woo Momma over to our side. We need this kid in the O & B.

    Everything I'm posting below is hearsay, so please keep that in mind.

    I've heard that Gibbs was a 5* talent before his knee injury. The staff is very high on him and with our loaded RB room, he will have time to fully recover.

    I've also heard that Glover doesn't have the green light to commit. The mutual interest remains there, but he is a conditional guy.

    My personal feelings from the video are that he is a 4* type back.

    Looking at the RBA video, he is the beneficiary of some bad defense, poor tackling, etc., all of which is NOT his fault. He is doing what a great back should against that mess he is playing against.

    Just saying its hard to get a handle on it. I do like his moves though. Not Toney level, but he is shifty as hell. Not break away speed, but with DBs these days, its hard to have when you are 215-220.

    You mentioned the things that I question about him. What is his top end speed? I realize some kids only run as fast as they have to. Someone else posted that he was fast.

    The other is that our backs are expected to be receivers. He doesn't have a very big wingspan, which if he was playing this year would be a problem. For whatever reason EJ has some problems with short throws going errant, making catches harder on the backs.

    On the up side, he could be a real bowling ball with his height to weight ratio and is definitely shifty and has vision.

    There were a couple of swing passes where the defense just gacked it. In a spread formation, it is almost always suicide to blitz a LB from the strong side of the formation. If the RB goes to the flat, that leave the opposite side LB to cover, which even our guys can't get there, if they run speed option, you are hung up in the A or B gap, if the QB hands off, the RB is running away from you, if it is QB power, the backside guard winds up trap blocking you in the A or B gap leaving no one behind you.

    Just saying that is why he was wide open on those wheel routes and swing passes.

    I don’t know who the opponents in the clip are, but I do know that he went for 250+ yards against Lakeland High School and the number 1 rated defensive player in the state (Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy) last week. He also lead the state in rushing ( for the year) after that game.

    yea for his size, I don’t see that “homerun” speed one would expect but he seems to be the type, and is now obviously, that just gets it done regardless. One of those dudes you pass up by overthinking it and regret it a few years from now

    While I realize that guys Do recover from their injuries, we already have two guys on the RB roster that are injury recovered that would likely return next year. Wright and Linguard. Gibbs may turn out recovered and be as good as any of them. Davis sure looks good. Finally. We may pass on Glover. He may stick with the Utes. But the kid looks good and will likely end up being a player.

    I have to be honest, between Glover, Gibbs and Gibson I keep getting really confused.

    Exactly, pure speed for a rb is nice but the least important skill needed. Can he consistently get those 5-10 yard runs, break tackles, and make people miss.

    Or that the second rb is up in the air. Not sure that’s a priority atm. Might depend on what other player at another position does. Or maybe portal action. There’s a lot of things that could determine if we take another rb.our 5th rb deep won’t decide if we win a title next year.
