It would be tough to get a Dunbar kid away from Locksley.

What is the status of these players with Illinois? Not saying these guys would be the immediate answer, just wondering.
Randy Heideman committed to Miami (Ohio) last Friday.

Except early enrollees count towards the previous class.

Yep. That is why the possibility of getting so many early enrollees is huge.

I think I'm going to make it my goal in life to have a rule named after me. It must be a good feeling to know that you bent the existing rules better than anyone else, so much so that they had to change them.

On that first play his explosion was unreal. 0-60 in no time flat. Daddy likey And on the 3rd clip, he turns that kid inside out. Bright future for him in the O & B as long as he can wait for the minor leagues.

I think he is a perfect example of how stars don't mean a thing. He's a 2 star on rivals and a 3 on scout. If he's on either coast, he is a 4 star.

Seems perfect for that Eric Page type role Toledo had last year. Get his the ball on missle screens, jet sweeps, etc. and let him get in space and work.

I wouldn't say crazy speed because it is HS level. I've seen a lot of film where a player looks great and fast, but doesn't have it the next level. he does have some good moves and is quick, but it is hard to say how fast he is until he gets here.

Agree. He doesnt look like a burner to me, more of a Danny Amendola type. That shifty, make people miss ability is more important anyway for the role he will fill.

His acceleration is what has me excited.

It looks like he has gotten quite a bit stronger this year. At least his youtube clips show him running through a lot more tackles.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Quick, strong, and very elusive.

If Moseley play defense look for him at corner. Day is probably little better safety than reciever at the college. His speed noything special ans might well only be a possesion reciever he would be able to make more impact on defense.

When you think of Timmons think Hermosillo but with more speed. Judging speed may be the hardest thing to do when watching tape. Hermosillo on scouts was running around 4.40 in camps. Prefer him at running back but he can be a playmaker. Timmons ditto except his camp times were around 4.32 to 4.34 if memory serves.

Looking at cb offers nobody from the juco ranks currently (Sendish) look to land here. There 2 highly appealing hs guys left Frazier who I watched very early on and he landed in a tie for the highest rating I gave of the 200 some I have watched since signing day. If we were to land either Frazier or Clark chances of Moseley going to the offense increase significantly.
Dawson is very raw only started playing a few years ago. I think he is a cb, his tackling his spotty and needs coaching hence the doubt to play safety. He played next to no reciever his junior and have seen no evidence that he has this year.

Regards to Barr first time I watched his tape it was hs film and left me tremendously underwhelmed. Then less than a month ago I watched his juco tape he has talent. He has better speed than probably everybody at reciever save Lankford maybe a draw with Millines.
