because people doing the rating have never played football and they don't know any more about judging talent than we do.

TBS said a couple of weeks ago we may have staying power going forward. Where things stand now is anyone's guess.

Let's get this right:

Offers from Winsconsin, South Carolina, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Michigan State, LSU, Florida State, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.

Not to mention 6'5" 295 with a top notch fro. How in the world does 247 rate him the 63rd best tackle.

Hope we bring him in. Getting him and Bailey would round out another great OL class.

I read that he's only played 2 years. Either way he has a 3.8 GPA and is supposedly Bama's top OL target.

The fro should automatically move him up 10 spots IMO.

I really thought after his visit 3 weeks ago and reading his comments, we had a legitimate shot with him.....at the time it was either Florida or us....now all of a sudden, Miami leads. wtf

It is still VERY early. Let the football season play out first is my guess on half these kids. Signing day is a long time away. Dylan Thompson is our biggest recruiter this year IMO. His success will prove to a bunch of kids that the 11 win seasons weren't flukes.
