    He sounds like an intriguing prospect. Should he decide to become a Trojan, I hope he's more substance than hype ( think Wole Betiku).

    I asked the coach specifically about that — international players or guys who have played different sports growing up and have all the physical tools but not the mental background in the sport. He understands that angle, especially having coached in Germany, and said he feels like Kanu isn’t one of those guys because of how much his football IQ has improved in a short amount of time.

    Always a bit of a gamble, but then again, guys who have played football their whole lives and have the same physical gifts sometimes don’t pan out either.
