Looks to be the best receiver at The Opening. Very fluid when running his routes and always catches the ball with his hands away from his body. Hope we find a way to get him come February!

The best receiver at the opening? That would be awesome, but I've heard little mention of it, most comments are about Ridley. What makes you say that

Just my own observations after watching him in action. Always seems to get open. Scored 2 tds, made catches short and deep, and was definitely the main target of his qbs.

again, just my own humble opinion, but he looks damn good.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but A&M has a lot going on right now. Here in Texas 5 years ago we were talking about the trash program they were. One player later they are the it school.

I loved watching him play. Thought he'd end up in the league but never saw him land on a roster. Was like a much larger Jerome Betis. Not to mention having Jorvirskie as a first name.

I know he was in Miami's camp a few years ago. I'm not sure if he made the 53 man roster.

Meanwhile Texas is struggling to regain elite status. I don't pay that much attention to them, and maybe I just haven't noticed, but I would say they are on a major downswing. New staff might resurrect them.

Kirk was awesome. If he could only shut Trent Dilfer up.

I didn't like that he was on the same team as Kyler Murray.

Kirk and Ridley were hands down the two best receivers all day.

bbb's picture

what's your take, is kirk committing to the good guys?

305Buck's picture

Will be tough but seems like we're one of his top choices with A&M.

I think in the end Ohio State will win out for three reasons, 1. He is building a great relationship with Smith and Meyer even calling Meyer the type of coach he wants to play for, 2. He has been quoted saying he wants to be like Percy Harvin, and 3. Johnnie Dixon is all over him and I'm sure we all know the ending once Dream 14 gets involved.

CK needs to be a Buckeye and I think we got the right recruits in his ear all week.

I think Birm has a man-crush on Kirk

I've said it a few times: I think Christian Kirk is the best receiver in the country and it's not even close. He's uncoverable. He may not have "track speed" but no one can catch him on the football field, he catches everything and he's built like a tank. Combine his physical tools with his work ethic, mental approach to the game and the fact that he's completely atypical of most WRs in terms of drama and prima donna antics and he's a no doubt, can't miss kid in my opinion.

Birm, I'm only watching the 7-on-7 on TV, but it looks as if he is, literally, not sweating.

Is he human?

Yeah but what have you done to get his commitment?

In the past you've also said that Gibson, if he decided to play receiver, would be the best receiver in the country.  So out of pure curiosity, if Gibson decided to play receiver how would he stack up next to Kirk?

It's the Arizona connection. Either that or we can trust Birm and realize that Kirk is a baller

Wow, that's really sleazy to steal a watermarked photo and then do a crappy photoshop of another team. (That said, this guy looks like a random A&M fan, not a TAMU staffer.)

A must get but it concerns me when he says things like  the sec is arguably the best and I want to play against the best. Of course he could play for us against them in the playoff but It wasn't meant that way. Hope he has had a change of heart. Could be those kind of words came from whose reporters he was speaking to. GO BUCKS

Think he is A&M's to lose but never count out Urban. Especially when he has in game recruiters like Hilliard and Cornell.

It is slightly frustrating that we don't have a QB out in Oregon to help with the recruiting. Hilliard may be the leader of the class, but I'm sure Kirk is thinking about who is going to be getting him the ball when he's in school. I like Burrow and think he's a good QB, just wish he was in Oregon to help Hilliard and Cornell with Kirk.

I've been thinking the same thing. In the same way that Cornell and Hilliard wanted a "Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis" combo, I wouldn't doubt an athlete of Kirk's caliber is hoping for a "Jerry Rice and Joe Montana" combo. I love Joey and Collier, but neither of them are blockbuster names, not yet at least. 

Obviously, there's more to the kid's recruitment than having a big name QB at the Elite 11 with him, but it certainly would make me feel better!

Question for Birm, which coach is in charge of Kirk's recruitment? Would it be Herman because he's in Texas and is closest? Or is Smith on it because he's the WR coach, regardless of Kirk being outside his region? With Smith being the B1G recruiter of the year last year, I hope Smith is in charge. 

tussey's picture

Kirk is from Arizona, so my guess is Smith.

ECSAGESTER's picture

Regionally speaking, Herman is closer. That was my point. I hope you're right though, if Smith can go to Southern Florida and pluck Dixon, I have faith he can go to Arizona and get Kirk. 

sivaDavis's picture

Birm. Birm is his recruiter.

I can agree with Kirk being the best but everything I have seen from Ridley has been utter ridiculous! The catch he made on Tuesday in one on ones still blows my mind!

so to say Kirk is better than Ridley tells me he MUST become a future buckeye!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

But if he is not a buckeye, can our cb's cover him?

Sorry if this has been posted...but does Kirk have a commitment time frame?

He hopes to decide in November. He likes coach Smith and has a good relationship with Dixon and Raekwon:
