    This ship appears to have sailed without us. While it's true Foreman and Davis ended up at USC, both were never committed at any time till the very end.

    I'd look elsewhere for LB help this coming year.

    I think the coaches feel this as well. Probably why they took the Kana commitment.

    Can anyone shed some light as to what Helton and is staff did that caused this kid to decommit and drop us all together when at one time he was as solid as could be.

    Speed....

    Don't get too caught up with these rankings for LBs.

    I tend to think this one is a little overrated.
    Carrying too much weight already on a smaller frame.
    If he was 6-4 it would be different. But 6-1 and 240 means he is already maxed out.

    Doesn't have that elite speed/potential like others do.

    Personally I believe the Trojans suggested he look for greener pastures else place for himself. I believe it was coach Naivar who said Speed needed to improve on this team.

    Things could change but as of right now LB rankings are near the level of OL in terms of who is drafted and where.

    A lot of these LBs that have high ratings also have maxed out bodies as well.

    So ultimately I don't particularly pay close attention to the rankings as much as I do how they look...

    I want to see them in coverage. A lot of the elite LBs today played the secondary in high school.


    One of the things Orlando and Naivar are trying to change is this...

    If you look at the Texas Defense.
    DeMarvion Overshown is the one that stands out.
    They have another one in Tyler Owens. But Owens hasn't done much in college yet.
