Hey Richard- We have been getting a lot of visits from quality guys, especially from TX which is great to see. CCM and staff seemingly are doing all the right things to at least get these guys interested and on campus, but as of late…all of the sites seem to be pretty quiet in regard to who is likely to commit or may have silently already committed. Are you hearing anything, especially in the linebacker area? Also- Starkel is about to hit campus. How likely is it that he takes over as the number 1 QB?
Maybe I am reading to much into it but just seems like he is still bothered by the fact we didn’t offer until earlier this year as he still mentions it. I guess I get it but I guess I don’t as I know it is an evaluation process by the staff but it’s not like it was a month or so before signing day. It was a year and month before signing day. Oh well, guess it is just me but I somewhat scratch my head on it a bit.
I’m still puzzled why we can’t get a sniff from ANY of the 4/5 star RB’s we offered. Not one. But CCM says we run the ball. Obviously it’s not being translated that way. That’s the key to this offense along with QB play. It’s not a good look that we can’t get a big time RB. We used to be RBU.
Also, the top player in the state going to OU again is bad for us as well.
I just don’t see BToll as a good (fit) athlete here. Too slow to play TE, and too slow for speed edge DE. Great athlete…but I think he’ll have to gain weight and play DT or Strong DE.
Seriously, if you have to be pampered on your time frame, then you aren’t looking at the big picture. If he goes to OU, then good for him. It’s a good school with great history. but he isn’t a player that stands out to me as a must have.
I don’t pretend to know anything about recruiting and frequently have to look up recruits mentioned here because I’ve never heard of them. But I did watch Hazen in the state 3A final against Junction City and Toll did not stand out to me even at that level of competition.
I know he did sir, but that is not impressive to me compared to other athletes I see. Plus, his game film doesn’t impresses me either. Similar to the WR at Ole Miss who has great measurements but can’t shake a DB from his shadow and drops .33 passes thrown to him. He was still a 2nd round pick, but I don’t see BT being that great of a player in our system.
That’s all. He’ll probably prove me wrong and I’m ok with that…but I just am not impressed.
Jrdent is spot on. You just can’t miss on in state talent like that. We only have 2-3 players a year.
But yet we give schollies to kids who don’t get offers from those same teams we lose in state players to. We offer kids who pick between us, Illinois and Kansas. Players that we already have a ton of. Sweet!
