    Good frame to add about 30 pounds.

    Early playing time is going to be important with this one but we are in a good position to get a OV from him according to Adam.

    Not sure why we would want a project playing early. My preference here would be a GS opportunity.

    Not sure that this is a GS kid, but I agree that his size, or lack thereof seems like a limitation for him playing early anywhere.

    Looks like the type of athlete that Mac likes.

    If you remember Wilners article he said that he likes taking pure athletes and building them up.

    We need DE help right away. Can he play as a true frosh?

    Yeah he might not be GS but a guy with this frame is going to need 2 years in the weight room before he will be able to compete. For sure he is a RS.

    247 Seems to be really high on this guy. Likely not a GS candidate like I initially thought. He will probably end up with some decent D1 offers as recruiting comes to a close.

    I don't know about playing early, looks like a guy that should be ready to compete for a starting spot in his 3rd year in College.

    Just watched his vids and he looks good. Very quick first step and seems good vs the run and pass. I'm surprised he doesn't have more Pac-12 interest

    Awesome. He'll need some time to put on weight, but he has a lot of potential imo.

    Nice. Given that we lost a few DE's in this class I'm in. Like that he has a UW offer, at least we have some guys in this class that other peer schools like too.

    Nice pickup. Confirmed CU did not have a spot for him in the end.
