    Klein is on the outskirts of Houston and features some pretty good competition. Santos' brother and another teammate signed with Nebraska in the 2011 class.

    Really happy to see the coaching staff offering several players in both Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston. Let's see if Kanavis can do some work.

    I went ahead and put him in as a Safety for the Index. I could definitely see Brownie wanting him at Corner, though. And it seems the services are divided on position. But the film's at Safety and he looks good there. Very smooth and quick to break on the ball.

    His size concerns me at Safety.

    That's the unusual thing with Brown's secondaries, though. We tend to have bigger corners than we do safeties. I don't know if that's by design or not, but it does seem we're more likely to recruit a 5'9" safety than we are a 5'9" corner.

    He wants to major in engineering, which is always a plus for us.

    Nebraska does not seem to be showing much interest right now, so I hope we can get him out to Boulder sometime over the spring or summer.

    He has picked up offers from Louisville and Boise State in recent weeks. Sounds like other schools may be close to offering as well. Sounds wide open at this juncture.

    Good cover skills. Looks like he'd be better suited to corner.

    2012 CB/S Ryan Santos

    Out of Klein, Texas. Has offers from Colorado, Boise St, and Texas. Says he favors Boise St and Colorado.




    He has a teammate that committed to Boise St, and from some Facebook snooping(I know, pathetic) he says he's about to pull the trigger on committing. Not sure to what school, but if we lose another kid to Boise I'm going to pull my hair out.

    Thanks for the info, Buffy.

    For future reference, you can check the 2012 Recruit Profile Index that is pinned at the top of this forum. It has links to all of the athletes we have profiled for this year's class.

    I'll go ahead and merge this in with the Santos profile.

    My bad, Im new and didn't know the features of this board so excuse my laziness.




    Didn't see any stats, but stats for high school db's always seem to be misleading one way or another. A CB with 20 tackles and 1 int may be a 4 star corner, while a CB with 80 tackles and 6 ints may be a 2 star corner.

    Ahh.. I didn't mean to say he had an offer from Texas. I meant Louisville. My bad again. Phone won't let me edit original post.

    No worries. I was trying to help.

    Be nice and so much easier if one our admins could figure out how to load in a program for this board that let us do a data table with all the prospects that included basic info, huh? Bunch of lazy-ass, incompetent idots - but that's what you get when you bring on a bunch of 1* mods & admins. :smile2:

    Regarding DBs, especially CBs, I think that's the hardest position to scout by far. (I think DT is the easiest.) Stats don't help at all. Lots of INTs and Tackles could mean the guy's a playmaker or it could mean that the other team ran and threw at him a lot. I try to look for electronic times for a sprint (whether it's a camp 40 or a track meet), pro shuttle time from a camp, verified height, and then on film try to see how well he opens his hips, breaks on the ball, uses his hands, and plays with discipline (not peaking at the QB all the time). We rarely get all of that from the info that's out there and the highlight vids, so it's tough.

    Why are DTs the easiest?

    Tuumalo committed to Boise. We flipped him. It's a long time between June and signing day in February. These are kids. Most flip flop.

    It's easy to see when a DT is dominant. Beyond that, whether he pushes the pile, chases down plays to the sidelines, has more than one move, can take on double teams. Basically, you know if he's disruptive. They're hard to find, though. So many quality DTs end up being guys who switch from other positions.

    Check out Nate Bonsu's highlights against great competition as a Texas prep. Quick hands, agility, great pad level, excellent feet, naturally strong, plays with leverage, does a good job of splitting double teams. What he lacked was a variety of moves, and Tui is going to have to develop that over the next 3 years. But it's obvious that he can play. And this is a mid-grade 3* recruit, not some 5*:

    The rivals links didn't play. But the physical description helped. So for DTs, basically a Darius Thomas (sp?) blueprint? What does speed have to be to be effective?

    Darius Thomas? Not sure who you're talking about. Maybe I'm having a brain fart.

    If you're asking about speed for a DT, if I see a camp 40 of under 5.0 with a 20 yard shuttle of under 4.6, the guy has NFL 1st round athleticism. I care a lot more about the shuttle time. Anything over 4.7 and he's probably more of a space eater.

    Sorry for the thread Derail. Ryan, Be a Buff!

    I would assume so, but it's still a stretch.

    Bummer, sounds like Boise working Texas the last few years is paying off.

    I liked Santos, but I think we're after a lot of guys at safety and corner that are equally good. Good luck to him.

    Ya, that's how I feel as well. Although losing kids to Boise St irks the crap out of me, but maybe that's because I live here.

    Can be hard to take someone seriously when they suggest academics are important factor in their decision and then pick a glorified junior college like Boise State. Can't wait until this school turns back into the pumpkin it is.

    That said, wish him luck.

    New Mexico.

    This is a good pickup for the Lobos.
