he's a DT long term......he is too good not to go after....he would also fit really well on the outside in a 3-4.....

I saw a tweet earlier from one of the Rivals guys that said Darian knows three teams that will make his top five. Don't know if we fall in to that category or eventually will, but we were one of the teams mentioned. Hopefully his good visit jumps us in to the conversation.

Keep in mind Lewis could be a 1 year guy and Sawyer a 2 year guy. Of course that would mean they are playing at a very high level but these JUCO's imo should be considered a short term luxury.

That could certainly happen. We've had a ton of JUCO's my lifetime & I can't think of a single one, off the top of my head, who stayed 1 yr & left for the NFL although I'm sure it's probably happened. The vast, vast majority don't do so because the 1st year is typically a year to get their feet under them & generally they work their way into the rotation as the year progresses if at all. Point is, it would be very atypical. Even Jasper Brinkley returned for his Sr season (twice, med RS) after being named All-SEC after his Jr yr.

DJ Jones has already stated he wanted to play 1 yr & move on. We'll see how that pans out for whoever he signs with.

I think it depends on the quality of the player. If they request a letter from the NFL and get high grade, it all likelihood their gone. So if Lewis and Sawyer are as good as advertised, we're only getting them for 2 years. This is another huge reason why it's so important for kids to be able to go to prep school......they stay for 3 years.

Doesn't matter how good Lewis is. He already used a RS year & will have only two years eligibility left after completing this season at Hutchinson. He will have 2 to play 2.

And of course it depends on the quality of the player. But my experience tells me a JUCO is no more likely to leave after his Jr year for the NFL than a 3 yr player who is enrolled as his original school. Actually I think they're less likely but I have absolutely no stats to back that up. As stated above, I couldn't name 1 JUCO at USC who left after 1 year for the NFL. I challenge anyone to name 3 in the history of the school. Not saying it can't be done but I'd be highly impressed with the poster who could do so.

Yeah, see above. I was talking about at USC & immediately edited my post to reflect that since maybe it wasn't clear even though I stated "in the history of the school".

Back to Roseboro, normally I would like USC's chances of beating NC State on a guy they really wanted IF he decides to stay in the region. There just doesn't seem to be a lot of information on this guy given his talent level to draw much conclusion as to how this thing is likely to turn. Insiders overwhelmingly have him going to Michigan so I'll go with that for now. But I've found that anytime a player is leaning toward going to school that far away that as the time gets shorter the reality of the distance starts to set in. Sometimes it's a game changer, sometimes it's not. But it's quite common for doubt to enter into the equation.

I think USC has a puncher's chance.

I would say this is disappointing, but we weren't even in his Top 10 a month ago, so I'm not shocked.

Default Darien Roseboro

..maybe I'm spelling his name wrong, but I couldn't find a thread on him, and I'm sure I remember seeing one on him earlier.

4-star DE from NC, just saw on Yahoo sports that he decommitted from Michigan, wants to be closer to home. And he apparently is an early enrollee.

Anyone have any idea if we could get back in the mix with him? Apparently he decommitted and went to the NC State/FSU game.
