    Told me he won't be able to make the spring game as he's attending his little sister's birthday, but will be in Boulder Sunday/Monday before potentially catching a flight to Oklahoma State. He said CU is in his top three, despite lack of offer.

    Ringo confirmed he was at practice today and said he looked like he could play now based on size.

    Man look at the size of that monster. Seems unreal that a 17-18 year old kid could be that big.

    Okay, okay! I'm just looking! :)

    Hard to believe with that size more schools aren't on him yet. Looking at him, it looks like the right kind of size too...muscle and not extra fat.

    Hmm. If he thinks our facilities are amazing, what adjective will he use to describe Oregon's? Was he talking about our planned facilities or the ones we have now?

    Beavs do a great job with OL evaluations. Makes me even more excited about this kid's potential. Need him to be a Buff.

    He certainly has the size to play early. I think the coaches would really like to get to a spot where they're not playing freshmen on the OL. A 5th year senior will almost always be better than a true freshman. That said, if he can play, and would be an upgrade over what we have currently, get him in there.

    I like this kid a lot, I hope we can land him. I'm curious to see what others think where he could/should play on the line. Yes he's huge, but he doesn't seem to have quick enough feet to play tackle in the Pac 12. I'll admit I know practically nothing when it comes to evaluating linemen.

    I agree with you. Even against Utah HS competition, he was giving up the outside to pass rushers. That said, I think you still recruit him as a RT and focus on his technique, footwork and foot speed/agility drills. He'll never be the most athletic lineman on the team, but he should show improvement and that size can mask some flaws.

    Bowen picked up a Boise State offer recently.

    ...

    I swear I had nothing to do with it.

    Their Jr. Tackle Is Actually Better. Between Corner And Timp, I'm Guessing 8 d-1 Scholies
