This is great info, thank you.  

It is really hard to be a great football player when a player doesn’t have great athleticism.  It looks like receiver is the easiest position to overcome that though.  

Comment 03 Jul 2019

If the staff thinks he can play a tackle spot, which seems to be indicated he can, then I think another tackle is a priority. You can never have to many players that can play tackle effectively.  

If he were strictly destined for the inside, I would agree with your point.

Andrew strongly insinuated that there is something specifically deeper going on with Ringo.  Given Birm’s confidence as well I think there staff took him off the board after an incident occurred behind closed doors. 

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Could explain all the Rivals crystal balls coming in- hard not to pencil a kid into a class when it can be seen he’s recruiting for them.  

Comment 23 Jun 2019

If Robinson is trending away I wouldn't be opposed assuring Trayanum he would be a RB, he is probably in the next tier of options. 

You could do worse than a combo of Trayanum and Adams/Berger/Knighton/Corum. 

Comment 22 Jun 2019

Robinson is going to be a complete stud too.  Upset I got my hopes up.  

Next in line should be Adams- elite athleticism with plenty of room to add to his frame.  

Comment 22 Jun 2019

Not sure the criticism to this post- this is a very fair take if you genuinely didn’t know he had a lower body injury.

But yes, that is a big reason why.  He is a lot like Adolphus Washington and think he’ll have a very similar career- 6’4 Cincinnati kid that is prolly putting on enough weight to move to the 3-tech. 

Comment 14 Jun 2019

I know this is going to sound like rationalizing the now likely loss of Milton, but I don't see it seeing a big drop from him to our other options.  I think we would be just fine with a combo of Adams/Berger/Knighton.  Then get Trayanum on board and move him to linebacker if the RB options prove to be legit.

That said, I think missing out on Robinson would be a bigger blow.  But it's hard to get upset about that though because he has seemed a lot less likely recently.

Comment 13 Jun 2019

Better question might be is who on that ‘19 list wouldn’t we take a commitment from if they wanted in? Frayer maybe?

Not only is that a long list, it’s a quality one. 

Comment 12 Jun 2019

I completely agree.  Based on everything that’s come out on Cavazos he is starting his career at corner.

But with two of our top corners likely leaving and not signing anyone last year, I have to imagine we take a third.  

Comment 11 Jun 2019

Landing Milton, Knighton, and Trayanum would be fantastic. 

Really hope that additional OL is someone we swing for the fences with, preferably at OT.  

Comment 02 Jun 2019

If Flemming, Scott, and JSN are okay with it I’d have a hard time saying no to that type of talent.  

Doubt it comes to that though.   

Comment 25 May 2019

Impressed you could post this after having ~10 Buffalo Traces.  

Good news regardless, probably most important recruit in the class.  

Comment 20 May 2019

Yea, that’s not good at all.  I’d argue though straight line speed is more important for a DB than RB.  

Some reason for optimism: his 20 yard shuttle time would have placed him 4th at this year’s NFL combine.  Very good for a 220 pound high schooler.
