Frankly, I don't see the speed for him to be able to move at LB. I don't doubt that he can come in and put on serious muscle, but speed might be an issue if the staff wants to move him to LB
230 lb dude hurdling dudes is impressive no matter what level of high school it is.

The point is Blue, Walton and Crosby are all good athletes and can play multiple positions on either side of the ball. These guys give us a luxury not many teams have.

I can't imagine Crosby not being on offense. He would be deadly running down the seam, and wheel routes.

Speaking of Crosby though, that dude could realistically play about 7 different positions and be a beast at them all. That is one versatile guy.

Think he could do both FB and TB. He is a stud.

And you know what, speed doesn't matter when all the tacklers are bouncing off.

I totally agree. Norwood on defense, monster FB, great receiving out of the backfield, he could lose weight and make a mean safety, etc.

I don't disagree, but he is 6' 230 & anyone who has seen him @ backer will tell you....ALL SEC caliber LB prospect (ask Saban). Again, I fear he is too much like Rainey (also a kid who everyone wanted at LB & would have been a beast of a LB had he moved there during his 1st summer).

We just don't do much w H-backs, and don't cite Dimarco bc he was more of a FB regardless of what the roster said. I love Blue as a bone crushing FB & Crosby getting PT (2-3 deep) right off the bat @ WILL &/or MIKE. He has acknowledged this & is willing to play any position if it gets him on the field...refreshing!

Somebody needs to explain to KC that HB/TE never go high in the draft. I know he has stated that's where he wants to play, but with his athleticism, LB makes so much more sense and he has a much higher ceiling there than HB. I hope the our coaches give him a look there this summer.

You tell recruits what they want to hear until you get them on campus. You give them a shot at whatever position they prefer and then you end up playing them where they fit.

You your idea is to lie to them until after they sign an LOI. That sounds more like a Dabo comment.

All I'm saying is to lay it all out. He's a very smart guy, he'll figure it out.
