I can see the Gordon references but not sure how I haven't seen any comparisons to a larger version of Jamal Charles with his ability to side cut make himself small and not lose acceleration.
Believe I read an article where Rashan Gary's mom stated people are blowing the whole coach to Meatchicken out of proportion because they really only knew the guy for at most three months.
By all account he is a great coach but his calling card is recruiting as a recruiting ace. More specifically his recruiting in the State of Florida is his specialty this only helps us going forward to have him and Zach Smith down there. This is a home run hire in every aspect and really should alleviate any and all concerns regarding Kareem Walker. Just a big-time pickup and kudos to Urbz for making it happen fast.
Hoping this is true would def be an absolute monster hire!
Tony Alford and Vince Marrow are two I'm sure will be on a lot of speculation lists. Important to note before anyone freaks about Kareem Walker his recruiter is Warinner and the person whom he committed to.
QB: Jarrett Guarantano
RB: Kareem Walker
Pivot/H-back: George Hill, Demario McCall
WR: Austin Mack, Justin Layne, Donnie Corley
TE: Jake Hausman, Luke Farrell
OL: Tyler Gerald, Liam Eichenberg, Prince Sammons
DE: Nick Bosa, Austin Robertson, Terrell Hall
DT: Rashan Gary, Kyree Campbell, Micahel Owenwu
LB: Brendan Ferns, Johnathan Cooper (prob plays hybrid role though)
DB: Jared Mayden, Wayne Davis
ATH: Kierre Hawkins
Best Guesses as of now but with this staff guessing at this point is a crapshoot. Also, I know people are saying they hope we hang on to Walker, but his coach has a school policy of once you commit that's it plus Walker is on record stating staying loyal is most important to him.
The latest update from Doug Kimmel is that the family was completely blown away on the visit so that would be in line with that USC article from reign of Troy.
From what I've read there is no indication that he is going to serve a Mormon mission and is something I'm sure would have been brought up in the tons of articles by recruiting sites by now. Also, it's premium info so I can't copy and paste but Doug Kimmel from scout who covers the Utah region, was a former Utah recruiter, is closer to this situation than almost anyone, had a very favorable update. Long story short he received texts from Porter's coach with Porter stating how amazing his visit has been so far.
Not sure but I think you can apply for an exception to the 25 limit just as long as you get to 85 total. Also, I'm not sure why no one has brought up the fact that Liam McCullough is potentially a gray shirt candidate which means he doesn't count towards this class.
Alex at 247 just CB'd him to the good guys FYI
Edit: Saturday you beat me to it buddy
OL Brandon Bowen is from Utah and prob overlooked amongst the OL commits we do have so like you said not entirely impossible. I just think this might be the Urban special and he doesn't lose many kids he takes over the recruitment for.
His high school coach has a team/school policy once you commit your recruitment is over and I'm sure he asked Kareem if he was sure.
Visits the weekend after Beckner too which will help them see where they're at on that front.
Barton Simmons from 247 switched his pick to the U this morning after overhearing his family telling Lawrence they did not want him going to Bama.
'15 OL Jurkovic a Nebraska soft commit definitely is and Cager and Gallimore are announcing at the Army bowl. As for 2016, McCall and Guarantano could possibly commit.
From both Birm's article and other sites looks like the bananas should be warmed up for Jurkovic. Also read that Josh King for 2016 was one to keep an eye on. Not sure how much truth there is to that but I would put the over under for commits at 2.5.
Rashod Berry is the TE for this class even though he's listed at DE still. Hard to find a lot of his highlights at TE but he's in the same mold as Marcus Baugh. Rashod also went off in the playoffs against Mentor for 160 yds and 3 TD's. Add in Kierre Hawkins for the 2016 class who's in the same mold as Rashod on top of adding either Hausman or Farrell or possibly both and the future is bright at this position.
Could not agree more that this is how he should be used his freshman year.
Senior mid-season highlights drastic improvement from his junior film.
Fits the CB scheme under Ash like a glove and if you've ever seen him live or on tape play CB than you would get a better idea as to why. Add that with the pivot position being full and Demario McCall being more special with the ball in his hands for next class and it makes sense to have more guys that fit the new scheme.
Lot of the insiders have Mizzou on top but all you can ask for at this point is a chance for LJ, Ash, and Urbz to impress him and his family.
Has a really big arm doesn't always know where it's going when it leaves his hand, but amazingly enough throws a pretty accurate deep ball.
There were during the spring and early summer, however, they subsided after he announced we were his leader after visiting for FNL.
