    I'm fairly certain this has been posted before but it's worth another look. This is must see stuff folks.

    This kid is :wow:

    Rodney Stewart

    It takes the vid awhile to load, so pause it for awhile and watch the whole thing. Amazing.

    That is pretty impressive.

    Is he that good or was his competition that bad?

    He has some nice vision and makes very nice cutbacks.

    He's strong too, especially being a little dude. From what I remember, the competition was pretty decent. Ohio football is not quite Cali, TX or Florida, but it's pretty strong.

    I for one, watched him his entire senior year, and YES he is the real deal! The reason he was so low under the radar is because he tore his ACL his junior year during a scrimmage, and you all know how important your junior year is in high school. He played as a freshman and contributed to a Division 2 State Championship year. I am going to say it, agility wise, he is like a reggie bush. After tearing his ACL, it only took 8-10 months to get back in full force. He squats over 450 lbs and benches around 350 lbs. He is very strong! His work ethic is crazy. You will get a good return man, but he will surprise a lot of you on how good of a running back he is. His vision is an A +. I haven't followed Colorado football, but me being an Ohio boy, I will follow for the next four years because of "Speedy". Good luck to you guys. Let me know if yall have any questions.

    Thanks for the visit as well as your analysis. Stewart's LOI was a completly unexpected, and thus he has drawn a lot of interest and speculation for the Buff fans. We're very, very excited to see him on the field!

    Whoa Nelly.
    Stewart s barley even getting touched.
    Just lots of defenders left in the dust an lots of refs signaling TDs.
    That's quite a highlight reel.

    Do you know what's up with Chris Freeman from Trotwood-Madison? I thought he and Doug Rippy are good friends.

    Cool vid link.
    http://www.columbuscityleague.com/videocontent/vidmain.html
    Go to '2008 Signing Day' on the right. Rodney is in the begining.
    Then skip to about 5:33. His coach or principle has a few words about Rodney. He explains how RS got injured fighting for more yards during a scrimmage.

    Man, DH knows talent. Great vision and awesome speed. If he was taller he would have been a 4*. What a great get. Cant wait to see this kid returning punts. I'm getting antsy for the season to start. DH will rebuild the program back to the Mac era. It takes time; it took Mac time, and it took Mangino and Pinkel time to rebuild those teams. Soon DH will have CU soaring past those 2 programs and we'll be leading the North.

    Ohio State didn't get enough tape on him since he lost his whole junior season due to a torn ACL. But his senior highlights are enough. I would say that his coach didn't do a lot of promoting either. But he is a huge still for you guys, I'm telling you.

    Actually it wasn't Hagan that found Stewart, it was Rippy who knew of him and told our coaches to give him a look.
