    Immediately pinned this tweet and tagged MacIntyre, Leavitt & Clark with it. Chev plus Edsall & Baer also following. Looks to be a main target now.

    I really liked what I saw on the film. Closes well. Drops pretty well in coverage. Really good pass rush. But the thing that stood out was how disciplined he was in his assignments for a junior in high school. Never lost contain even on reverses, scrambles, etc. Very good football player.

    Kid can run. He's got quick feet, too.

    I'd like to see what Leavitt could do with this guy.

    Don't know who he was talking about but his other uncle is J.R. Redmond, former ASU RB.

    From Scout article, "My uncle is (former ASU and NFL running back) J.R. Redmond," Fa'avae said. "I actually train with him on Sundays and Thursdays and have been doing that since I was little."

    I remember him, pretty sure he played on the team when they played for the national title.

    JR Redmond was a stud, legit Heisman candidate.

    Also from that article:

    Fa’avae, how did the USC 7v7 tournament go for you on Sunday?
    “I did well. I got a pick-six, and I tore some people’s heads off.”

    Got a Crystal Ball prediction on 247 from Gabe Encinas, the Desert Swarm (UA) recruiting director.

    Faavae has his CU offer pinned.

    Sent this late tonight:

    Haha awesome! 247 doesn't even have our offer posted yet. Would be sweet to get him before he even visits, means he likes our coaches a lot like Fontenot.

    Love this dude's film. Excited to watch some Mater Dei games as well if we land him.

    Edit: Thank you.

    A player each from Servite and Mater Dei in the same week would not suck.

    While encouraging, that doesn't sound to me like a guy who is ready to commit any time soon.
