    I was reading a rivals article on Nuckols (He's working his but, says he'll be ready academically for the fall) and I went and rewatched his videos. He's just a freaking beast. He destroys double teams along with being a pretty damn good FB.

    The video quality sucks, but you'll get the idea here.

    He's throwing shot put right now and trying to get to state.

    We have two legit DTs coming on to campus this fall. I keep having to pinch myself. both 6-2ish and 300#. So sweet.

    That's just not something you don't see everyday "DL/RB". How fast is this guy?


    edit: Watching that video kind of makes me wish the Kai experiment would have worked out. Would have been cool to have a 275# + FB. Oh well.

    He would have had all kinds of offers if he did not have qualifying concerns. Guy is ready to step in from day one and be a starting DT.

    I'd move him to fullback unless he can punt.

    I remember a couple years ago people whining about never getting blue chip DT's...glad that's changed. We need some t-shirts made for him like the Rabid Goldfish T's

    one of the things i like about this class. national rank is not what we'd hope, but i thought Hawk did pretty good with needs. getting the Kasa decommit was also huge.

    7-8 wins and a bowl this year and a top 25 type class will follow.

    Florida tried to snag Eddie from us after we took Kasa from them.
