Man that's crappy. First Smalls, now Ritchie. It has been an unfortunate run for our recruits with Young in the car wreck earlier this season. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

SIAP, but I noticed Kalan is now listed on Rivals as a DE. I hope that's where he ends up with us, need some depth there.

I think he will be a DE here. Anybody have any idea what our plans with KC Crosby are yet? I know when he committed he said he was all tight end. Isn't he a tad short?

I think we recruited him for the TE/H-Back position similar to how we used DiMarco during his time at USC. Crosby has played some LB in HS but prefers offense in college. I think Clemson recruited him as a LB and he didn't want that...

All he needs to do now is beef up a bit and he could see some playing time early.

Default Re: 2014 Commitment - Kalan Ritchie

I would ask jayceecock re the odds of Ritchie qualifying. He is the only one, if he is even willing to comment, who would know if he will /might /won't make it. Personally, if it is just a test score issue, I will be very happy (5 to play 4 after prep school & they nearly always stay committed + make it in vs JUCO)

Apparently has been less than impressive in shrine bowl practices. Guys on TBS said he does not seem to have the upside as originally thought and looks to be a huge project. Btw.. everyone has him as a TE except rivals who has him as a four star defensive end.

Yeah, Im not sure if he will be a TE. I bet the coaches either look to use him as a DE or a OT. They say KR is a great blocker and has good footwork, but it will take 2-3 years to get his body shaped to become an OT. I could see him move to the defensive side of the ball, and that is what KR prefers as well.

Wes on tbs said he's actually been pretty horrible blocking too.

Damn, maybe he is just having a bad week, or the competition there is just that good. He said in an interview at the Shrine Bowl he wants to play defense, so I guess we will have to wait and see what happens when he gets on campus.

I guess 247 agrees with this...bumped him down to an 84 rating

Edit: lol I just noticed your TBS reference, so guess that makes sense

Default Re: 2014 Commitment - Kalan Ritchie

These so called recruiting pundits crack me up.

Kalan Ritchie is an excellent blocker, watch his film.

SC Shrine Bowl team runs a one back spread offense. Kalan is not accustomed to its blocking scheme, technique and max protection blocking.

Brandon Shell had the same problems when he was making the transition from a power I run offense in high school to a spread, zone read offense. It took him two years to get comfortable, and Kalan has only one week to prepare.

If the SC Shrine Bowl team was running GT's offense, Kalan would be applauded for his blocking and the recruiting talking heads would be deducting points to the two QBs because they look horrible at QB.

Idiots.
