Hmm, he is a 3 star on 247, but a TE? interesting

Sure seems like we are going with the shotgun approach in the final days before NSD. Makes me think there will be a lot of movement on our boards.

Put this guy in backfield with Crosby and we will have our way with defenses. This guy is AT LEAST a high 3 star talent. I like this guy better than Ritchie honestly, and I think Ritchie probably won't qualify.

I thought the same thing. I really hope we're not in for a bad surprise on Wednesday. It's odd that there's so many names popping up this late.

Nothing in his measurables nor his film looks other than "project." Not an encouraging rumor if true.

everyone is a "project." Just because you personally can't see the potential doesn't mean it is not there. The guy is really fast for his size and has good hands and runs with power. He'd be rated higher if he was a prototypical size and teams clearly knew what to do with him. If our coaches offered than they know what they want to do with him.

That'd be surprising. USC doesn't even show on the Rivals list of schools that show interest and I couldn't even find a thread on him. It came out of nowhere.

If you use offer lists as a gauge, he was offered by Minnesota, Ark State, Furman, Iowa, La Tech, La-Laf, Nicholls, Northern Illinois, Old Dominion, South Alabama, Troy and UAB. Doesn't give me much confidence, but time will tell how good he is.

I don't know if its that surprising, all 5 of the main targets needed to choose us to fill out the class. Prince is all but out, Scott has chosen Tennessee. That alone is 2 spots. Factor in Caldwell being borked by the SEC and we are now at 3 additional slots to fill at RB, DL, or some other position of need. I am sure they would love another good Olineman, but none seem to be "on the market."

So take those 3 additional slots they are trying to fill at this moment and then consider that we might not get Wideman, it's still iffy at this point. That is possibly 4 slots they want to fill, and the only people we have a really good track on flipping (outside of Wideman) is McClain.

it's called "under the radar." Contrary to popular belief Alabama and Auburn can't get everyone in their state, they don't have the room. Some slip through their fingers like Johnathon Walton last year, and this Robinson guy this year.

And a lot guys won't qualify including the chance for some we didn't expect.

2* & 3* = who cares. Ask Captain, Norwood, & a boat load of other former Carolina greats. Heck Skai was a 3* until the end...how did that work out?

He's really underneath everyone's radar then, including our own since it doesn't seem we made contact. That's why I'd be surprised if he was any kind of surprise to USC.
