    If Mr. Johnson signs with the Buffs, he'll have to take on the moniker of his namesake -- The Rock.

    Big dude with some nice, quick feet.

    When I posted this profile, I wondered who would be the first idot to post a quote, vid or pic from The Rock.

    I shouldn't have wondered. :lol:

    Yeah, I really can't wait to replace that "pancake" stat with "laid the smack down on his candy ass"

    OK. Let's keep in mind that this is a recruit thread. If you feel a burning need to talk about men in tights, do it in the Pub.

    I'm really impressed with how well he moves and is able to handle the Center position at 6'6". Maybe he played a lot of basketball or something. You usually don't see that.

    it would be good a pull another quality lineman out of texas--- we've had some good ones over the years. it looks like he can move and he has a mean streak: both are excellent qualities.

    fingers crossed!

    Where is Bellaire? Have we ever had any other players from that school?

    He looks quick on his feet

    Bellaire is the "good" Houston public high school that you want your child zoned to. Hasn't produced a ton of football talent relative to other schools. However Dennis and Randy Quaid both graduated from there.....

    Good size on him. At 6'6", what do you think he has the frame to play at? 300? 325?

    I haven't heard, but that's a safe assumption since he's lead recruiter for the Houston area.

    The Rock is gonna lay the smackdown on your candy ass! The Rock is gonna go down Know Your Role Boulevard, hang that right at Jabroni Drive, and proceed to check your candy ass in at the Smackdown Hotel. Know you role and shut your mouth. If you smell... what the Rock is cookin'!

    article suggests we are just about full but are willing to make an exception for certain players.

    Can't say I know much about SMU's academics, but I'm surprised that he's concluded it's better than CU. I imagine it would depend a lot on what he plans to study. Hopefully it's not a case of negative recruiting by other schools labelling CU a party school.

    There's a lot of "conventional wisdom" in Texas based on state pride that isn't always based in reality. For example, Texas kids are told that Baylor is the equivalent of Stanford for academics. SMU, by extension, would be like going to USC.

    ^This. It may also be that our staff has backed off with a full O-line class, and he's rationalising his decision for SMU or Purdue.

    In terms of threat to students that's actually a true statement. You could get kilt!
