Sorry Miami, looks like you lost a stud.  Solid Urban flip.

Before anyone asks, individual position rankings are released on Thursday. There aren't 50 tackles in the top 100.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Freaking man-child.  6'9", 305 lbs. And looks late 20's to early 30's and something from a comic book.  I think I'd go out of my way to stay on his good side.

the kid is an absolute monster.... 6'9" ?! I kinda feel bad for our QB's there

Yeah, I'm not exactly sure what the staff is thinking recruiting that tall on the o-line.

A kid that is 6'9" can ONLY play OL.

Many HOF LT's are ~6'8".

It has been brought up in the past as a concern for quarterbacks not being able to see their receivers downfield over their o line. That's the only reason I said that.

305Buck's picture

That would be a legit concern if he was in the middle of the line, but I don't think it's that big of a deal for a Tackle to be that tall.

Woodshed's picture

Most OT's are tall because they inherently have very long arms. Long arms are desirable when going up against speed rushers to keep them away from your body and to force them farther outside so it takes longer to get to the QB.

Still interesting that Hilliard (#49) and Feder (#87) are our only commits in the 100. Surprised to see Cornell not in there. Also find it interesting that Torrance Gibson dropped completely out of the top 100

Gibson probably dropped because he has us as his leader..

Possibility for a huge jump was there with Feder considering last year's injury/ new position. Could move up a bit if he continues his solid play this season.

You're automatically a Top 100 prospect if you can bench press a 1992 Buick Roadmaster

You know, Per Rivals and whatnot

Feder is great do not get me wrong, but I have never agreed with Rivals rankings. These are atrocious in my opinion. Sweat at 5? Gibson and Cornell not in the top 100..? Kyler Murray is all the way down at 54th! I mean really, if you think Gibson and Murray aren't 5 star talents then what is?

After GSW & Gray Box, 305 has been killing it with some very informative contributions to the site. Much appreciated. Thank you & keep it up !!!

So am I the only one who thinks that when Kevin Feder is playing, the offensive line becomes the Feder Line?

I didn't want to start an entire new thread, but wanted to share this interview that scout.com had with Kevin Feder yesterday.

Feder's team took down Walker's team last Friday. Walker is a top 10 player, and the #1 RB in the 2016 class.

Excited to see this.  I thought for sheer size and athleticism, he's been undervalued by all the recruiting services.

I don't always downvote, but I do always downvote a Michigan fan trolling the Buckeye boards.

Does anybody know the tallest football player in history?  I assume that he was an OL.

Thanks!  Did he really play football in college or pro, or was he just an actor playing the role of a football player?
