    Stringfellow figures to be one of the more highly recruited players in So Cal for the 2013 class. He was injured most of his sophomore season, but showed well at camps over the summer and helped his team to a 14-0 record in the fall. He has been getting attention from most of the Pac-12 and plays for a traditional power in the Inland Empire. Could not find film on him yet, nor could I find junior year stats (his high school does not keep them).

    I'll post some video. It's on Hudl. KID IS VERY IMPRESSIVE. Body type reminds me of Roy Williams at UT. Very good route runner, great release off the LOS. You can always tell the best athletes on the field when they start and stop, it's so smooth. This kid has that. He's going to be a very good player provided he can stay healthy.

    He was a standout at the LA Nike Camp over the weekend and was selected to the Under Armour All-American Game today. Easily one of the top WRs in the west this year. Hope we enter the race because he is the big target (measured in at 6'3"/205 over the weekend) we need.

    Wow, I thought CU would be smart enough to offer this guy.

    Picked up an offer from USC. Have to admit that the WR recruiting is a bit head-scratching right now.

    Think it is an issue of looking for a specific skill set with this year's class? Just seems like we have a different board than most other teams.

    I would have offered based on the name alone. I really want a WR we can nickname Airwolf.

    Not really sure. If you look at all of the WR offers out right now, attributes vary quite a bit from player to player. I guess what confuses me a bit is it would seem we will not be taking many WRs total for 2013 and we already are pretty low in numbers at the position (even with three in the 2012 class).

    Ya. Either they LOVE who we got last year (seems a stretch since they aren't on campus yet) or they really feel that since Prich is guaranteed to come back for one more year they can afford to go light on the position in order to focus on bigger needs in this small class.

    I think it's a lot easier for a freshman receiver to make a difference right off than a freshman any other position. Most other players need some time to bulk up and/or learn the system but all a WR really needs is to know what routes to run and when to run them. I know this is a simplified view of looking at things but I can't think of another position where it's easier for a freshman to have an impact IMMEDIATELY.

    Interesting, it seems like they say the opposite about receivers going the NFL, that they need two or three years before you can count on them. Obviously a different game from the college to pros so who knows. For the sake of the Buffs next year I hope you are correct.

    I disagree. I think the easiest position has to be running back. Not close either. Next would be corner and safety. Wide receiver would be 3rd or 4th.

    If we get great play from a QB this year. Expect a 4 or 5 star recruit the next year.

    If Embo and EB are going to run a true WCO type offense, tall possession type recievers can flourish. Ed McCaffrey is a good example. Even Jerry Rice wasn't a burner. Look at McCullough and Spruce and they seem to be of that mold. Now having said that, wouldn't I like to see a bevy of PRich type wideouts? Of course I would. But then again Stanford did OK in the WCO set with some great TE play and hell, I couldn't name even one of their WO's...

    I love big wide receivers. I like some smaller guys with quicks and burner speed in the mix, but I would rather focus on big guys on the outside. They help you in the run game, they can make catches even when they're not really open, they're better in the red zone, they make big plays down field even if they haven't outrun the CB because they win jump balls (remember Simas), and they break big plays on slants because they break tackles.

    A great college example is Oklahoma State. A great NFL example is the NY Giants.

    You guys are calling JE's offense a West Coast Offense, but he calls it a pro-style offense. Is there a difference in your mind between the 2? I don't know enough about it either way so just wondering.

    Every NFL offense incorporates a lot of West Coast elements. "West Coast" anymore is just basic concepts within a Pro Style. Basically, it is a system for using high efficiency passing to control the game rather than the previous idea of using the running game for that purpose. It also asks the RB and, if used, FB to be multi-dimensional by having an active role in the passing game. No one is running a pure West Coast any more, especially in the pros.

    Just to add onto what Nik said, WCO uses a lot of options in the passing game. If the QB sees a certain type of coverage, that will dictate the play. Audibles change the routes, sometimes the play. It is pretty complex and uses the same sort of mismatch, ball placement deception that the old wishbone was designed to do...sort of a hit 'em where they ain't approach to FB. The WCo was the prototype, now pretty much all pro sets use the concepts but they have morphed past what Bill Walsh implemented in the beginning.
