    Re: '10 CA WR Kevin Smith

    We're the first in on him and not a lot of info yet.

    Supposedly he's already got over 500 yards receiving this year, has a 40 inch vertical, and should get even faster since he still runs like a basketball player (all this according to his coach).

    Hopefully being the first to offer will pay dividends here.

    I hate to quibble, but 405 lbs. seemed a little high.

    Try:

    ??seriously?? You wouldn't like to see 405 lbs running at 4.5 40 speed through opponents (and maybe goal posts)?

    Solid FS and WR. I would like his speed in our secondary, but would gladly take him at WR. Great acceleration and speed.

    I don't know. I'd love his ball skills at safety and he's definitely got the body for it, but he's still learning how to hit/tackle. As an ex basketball player, he'll probably be ready sooner as a WR. I bet he gets his first shot on offense in college. I'd love to land this guy, btw. The new video confirmed it for me.

    Looks like the best out of the group of his teammates. Hopefully we can land of couple of them and that will sway Smith.

    Interview with Grammage last night made it sound like the 4 guys from Compton (Smith, Street, Davis & Gammage) would like to go to college together. If so, we're in great shape on getting these commitments.

    Re: '10 CA ATH Kevin Smith

    Scout just did an evaluation and has Smith as a 4* Safety.

    One line I loved from the new article I loved was about how the knock on Smith is that he is sometimes overly aggressive and will miss some tackles because of it:

    "From a scouting standpoint though, if a player is going to miss a tackle, I certainly want it to be mistakes based on aggression rather than hesitancy. One of my favorite southern expressions: It's a lot easier to put a bit in his mouth than a boot in his butt."

    I love me some overly aggressive players.

    Sounds like UW is the team to beat here, though.

    Pretty much expected, but still disappointing.
