    Second team all-district as a junior (Peyton Williams was a first-team WR in this district). He was his team's second-leading receiver (behind Conner Crane) with 38 catches/676yards/5 TDs.

    He was a standout at the Army underclassmen combine.

    Starting to get more attention. He is making the Junior Day rounds. Hard to get a read on his feelings toward CU.

    Is still getting looks from several schools and might need to camp at some schools to earn offers. I think we have a decent shot at getting him to Boulder this summer, which would give us a shot at a commit IMO.

    Rivals subscribers can see some video at OU's camp. Looks a legit 6'3"/6'4" and fairly athletic. He probably lacks top-end explosiveness, but I hope we can get an official visit from him in the fall.

    Do you remember the "Jumbo" love fest we got when HaLk landed Darden?

    Vaguely. I don't believe I participated in that. I was pretty high on Ussery, though, from that class. Both of them were hurt more by their high school injuries than fans knew when they were recruited. Looking back, HaLkins took a lot of injury risks after others had backed off.

    Yup. Terdema's issue was concussions right?

    Collinski started it. Long before Darden.

    Interesting highlights.

    I think his position at the next level could be H-Back/flex TE. Long strider with really good hands, but athleticism is not off-the-charts and the speed looks above average, but nothing special. If he could get to the 6'3"/215 range, it seems he would be a weapon.

    His speed is definitely his only problem. Other than that, he looks pretty good. Still not sure there's a huge difference between this guy and Bobo, though. I'd really rather we target someone with some serious speed, but I guess Dunston covers that area..

    Solid pickup for ASU. Got the verbal from an unofficial visit. Always surprises me when anyone visits Tempe in July and decides they like it (personal thing with 120 degree heat since it feels like torture to me).

    The girl in the asu bikini is the little sister of one of my ex girlfriend. She went to Central Florida and is on some show on the golf channel.

    EDIT - Did not mean to further a threadjack on a recruit's page.

    Helped Denton Guyer win the state title today with 178 yards and 2 TDs. Overall, he had a very good season with over 900 yards and 10 TDs.

    Given ASU's struggles in holding on to Texas commits, might be a good idea to make a play here.
