    His offer list doesn’t seem to line up with his ranking. That’s a hell of a lot of offers for someone ranked 83. Could we envision a definite bump here? Not that it matters, just curious.

    Imagine that speed, quickness, and athleticism with an additional 20 pounds of muscle. Scary.

    Beating out schools like Mississippi State, NC State, and Virginia Tech for a defensive player out of Georgia is a pretty good recipe for success.

    Not ideal but not a dealbreaker for ILB imo

    Depends where they'd put him for that to be a problem, hell, might not matter anyway.

    A 5'11 ILB was just drafted number 10 overall by the Steelers. "6'0", not 6'2" makes zero difference.

    It does make a difference. Not necessarily a deal-breaker, but there is a reason the measurements are taken.

    Height is far more important on the outside than inside though. As long as he can run, I’ll take an ILB of Gamboa’s height.

    At 5'11" Tucker needs to consider pulling the offer. :whistle:

    If all the other stuff is there, height is not a concern, especially at ILB. A shorter ILB might have some matchup problems covering a TE, but on balance it’s pretty far down the list of important characteristics.

    Picked up a 5.7rr from Rivals which moved his composite score up pretty significantly.

    He also picked up another crystal ball for the Buffs this morning from a Miss State insider.

    With 13 low to mid P5 offers that seems about right.

    Skill Set Breakdown

    Position Specific Profile Evaluation relating to level of play through the lens of a College Coach:
    [​IMG]
    Very intense and athletic OLB who has great instincts and can run. Plays Downhill and is very aggressive. Covers a lot of ground and does a great job setting the Edge. Does a good job getting into his drops and is disruptive in coverage. PLAYER!

    FBS Linebacker – Evaluation and profile will vary on Coach specifics of MLB & OLB!
    Physical Measurables: Key Stats:
    • Height: 6’2″ – 6’4” 40yd: 4.6 on Beam!
    • Weight: 230 lbs. – 240lbs. Bench: 315 – 325 lbs. Squat: 445 lbs. – 465lbs+
    Coach Keys:
    *Physical Impact – Displays the ability to take over a game physically. Extreme disrupter all over the field. Physically is a dominate factor knocking blockers and ball-carriers on the ground and backwards. Great instincts with a great nose for the ball. Strong and explosive to play at LOS, athletic as a skill player to play in space. /
    *Versatile Efficiency – Displays great loose hips and great knee bend playing under pads exploding on contact. /
    *Effort & Motor – Great match up with RB, TE, Slot and can run with all. Great understanding of pursuit angles with great closing speed in space, level changing hips on target and accelerating feet. /
    *Demonstrates High Level Ability – Multi-year starter, All State & National recognition from recruiting media and Premier National Camp & Combine presence helpful

    I wish all prospects came with that level of breakdown. Thanks for posting that, I enjoy reading stuff like that.

    Free article from earlier today. He quotes himself at 6’2” 207 lbs and sounds like the coaching staff is selling him on being the Roquon Smith of this defense.
