Urban said that he wasn't handling his business in the spring. My guess is that his grades and workouts weren't where they should be. He got a wake up call and for a young freshman he made a quick turnaround. It was enough for Urban to mention his improvement last week.
He has quick feet for his height. I expect that he will gain a few lbs. and with his hands and speed make a significant impact in the next couple of years. Look out for these unknown guys from small schools they have a tendency to come out of know where.
My arms are just as big as his
So if he runs a 4.3 or close and was only a 3 Star, this could be a very nice pickup. BD you are right, with the right system he could flourish. As a few pounds of muscle it could be interesting. Funny how we are now after tall receivers.
How fast is his 40? We went from having smaller receivers to tall lanky guys. The thing about tall lanky guys if they can't get separation throw the ball up and let them catch it in the air. Smaller receivers don't have that as an option all of the time.
What is this dude doing underneath that bell?
I would like to see his 40 time, shuttle, etc versus Zeke's. One thing I noticed in the video was his vision and ability to make quick and seemingly easy lateral moves. Players would have an angle on him and soon were grabbing air. Get him in some open space and watch out. It will be interesting to see if he has the top line speed to run away from DB's once he breaks the line. I am glad he is playing for us. I will be the first to put him on the Heisman watch :)
SEC knows what a guy is worth and pays accordingly....
...BTW Michigan now pays their assistants better than us.
I think one reason the SEC pays their coaches more is they would like them to stay more then just a couple of seasons. Kirby Smart stayed at Alabama for something like 7 years before leaving to coach at Georgia. He was paid well and stayed until the perfect job for him became available. Ohio State and maybe now less so at _ichigan, based on their current pay rates, bring in coaches knowing they are likely to leave in a few years for better paying or head coaching positions. If Urban goes through a period of mediocre performances, as a result of poor coaching, I would bet Ohio State will start paying a little more to their coordinators to keep the good ones a little longer. Also, I agree Warriner should have never left the O Line.
I know a guy, who is related to another guy that sent me a text saying Lattimore is definitely going to make a decision...
