    No! No! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Do not want.

    Attitude and entitlement, allegedly dating back to high school playing days. Envisioning more DP or BDC headlines of "Buff (/ex-Buff) sucker punches cadet on the Hill." This dude had trouble putting the work in to solidify his position on a depth chart at Texas and though I can understand us wanting a few of their castoffs because they could certainly be an upgrade over what we currently have, the baggage is never worth it. Second chances and all that are cool, but not on this guy.

    Yeah! Like Paul Richardson! And our new starting QB!

    This would be a nice pickup for us providing much needed depth at WR

    Don't care. We have to take chances if we want to seriously upgrade our talent

    Fair enough if he gives us the replacement we'll desperately need in 2014 when Paul has left early for the NFL. Arizona seems to have some recruiting momentum going as of late which scares me more than it usually would to see them in that list. At the end of the day, if the head coach thinks he's worth a scholarship risk, I'll be happy to have the talent on the roster.

    The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. Tennis player was dating his ex-girlfriend. I'm sure HCMM will thoroughly investigate and find out about him.

    If the staff is comfortable, I'm comfortable. I'm not going to turn my back on talent because I've decided to pass judgment off of one headline.

    Let's let this play out with the understanding that if he ends up at Baylor we will call them hypocrites.

    Need to take chances and up the talent level. Trust MacIntyre. This would be enormous.

    Ex-teammate and "other QB Connor" transfer Brewer just announced he was going to "Airzona." Either that means they have less room for Jones or it'll help their chances. No idea.

    He lost his lady to a tennis player? Next thing ya know it'll be a soccer guy. As long as he can make the grade, who gives a damn? We had some hard men when we were good.

    I'm with Nik on this one-some fans want to be judge, jury and executioner on 19 yo kids w/o having all the info. If HCMM wants him, he must think Jones is a talent who can be managed/molded.

    BTW, anyone know if there is a connection b/w Jones and Wood? I realize Connor left before Jones got to TX but maybe they have some common friends on the team or Connor has found a way to start recruiting him.

    An infusion of talent would be welcome. Just leave the baggage in Texas.

    A lot of red flags when you sucker punch a dude just 'cause he was hanging with your ex. Sounds very Lawrence Phillips to me. I'm ok with a checkered past, but it depends on the nature of the incidents. My opinion only.

    He's apparently a passionate dude-just get him to channel those passions on the football field and he could be a beast.

    Boulder would be a fantastic/gorgeous place to rehab your imagine and start over Cayleb. Please see Toney Clemons and Paul Richardson as examples.

    LP is a huge leap from this guy. LP was one step from being OJ.

    Nik is on the right track with this one.

    All we know about this situation and the kid is the little bit that has shown up in the media. Things are rarely that simple. I'm not a fan of bringing in a guy who has problems dealing with women and controlling his temper and his jelousy. At the same time he's 19, an age where lots of people have allowed their impulses and emotions to get the best of them and done things that are entirely out of character for them.

    Key here is the deeper story. Let M2 talk to the HS coaches, talk to the kid himself, get the background. If the kid has a history that would indicate that this event was a reflection of who he is then thanks but no thanks. On the other hand if this event was something that was out of character for the kid and he recognizes it and is willing to work to make sure it doesn't happen again then we could certainly use the talent.

    As far as him being a prima dona and not having a good attitude that could also be determined from checking with the people who really know him. UT has a lot of kids who get caught up in the Longhorn machine and don't stand out right away. We heard some of the same stuff about our now starting QB. That's an issue for the coaches to look at.

    At least we know he is not a racist.... wait, maybe we should do our due diligence. Did he use any racist epithets before, during or after he broke that guy's jaw.

    What was his 40-time again... never mind.
