yay for completely ambiguous vague commentary... any details to support?
I'm sorry. Should I have added some f-bombs in there to make the post more exciting and easier for you to understand?
you could have also added you are hearing and who you are hearing it from... just sayin
How's this for a source?
"He is going to be outstanding," added sophomore offensive tackle Bryce Givens. "He actually reminds me of a younger Brian Orakpo. He is just real quick off the edge, has good hands, good feet. Once he gets a little weight on him, he is just going to be unstoppable."
Obi has a similar quote in the article.
His first step, allegedly, is ridiculous. There's talk that as much as he could use a redshirt year he may be so good that we have to play him as a pass rush specialist this year. Dude's only been playing football for a year and a half. He never lifted weights before last winter.
Talked to a couple buddies who have seen some practices. They were amazed at his athleticism. Would be nice to have some speed at DE again, would rather have a true 4-3 than the 4-3/3-4 hybrid we have been using.
I love good news.
i was about 15 feet away from dl snap drills the other day. he was jumping a bit early sometimes and bandi got into him, but man he is quick.
No weights before last winter?! Definite redshirt then. Definite. If he comes out expect him to play 3 plays a game. I do enjoy the reports of athleticism, but he definitely is going to need more technique and strength before he can compete day in and day out with the Big 12/Pac 10.
I'll be looking forward to him next year (whatever he's squatting, add 150 to with 10-15lbs more muscle and he'll be good to go).l
High praise, hope he lives up to it.
I should add I think he really would benefit greatly from a redshirt year. Let him bulk up to the 245-250 range and look out.
I think the only way he dont redshirt is if he is better than anybody we have.
let's not forget his cousin is osi umenyiora. hell of a guy to be able to call and get pointers/tips etc.
he only has 4 years... can we bargain for a quick start?
This is another reason why I think Bandison deserves more praise.
Herrod, Cunningham, Pericak, Bonsu, Kasa, West, and now Uzo-Diribe. If Poston and Poole can develop in the next couple of years that is an impressive rate of recruiting/retaining/and developing talent. I am the first to say that we have needed more numbers along the D-line (OK maybe not the very first), but Romeo has done a very good job as a coach and eye of talent.
As far as Chidera goes, I LOVE his story and potential. How cool would it be to have non-football kids Poole and Uzo-Diribe as our sack-artists of the future!
This sentence makes me :lol:
just generally makes you happy, or some specific, sarcastic, "WTF-is-this-guy-talking-about" type of way?
