    Question for anyone who might know. I saw ITS a handful of times in HS with the ball in his hands. He was impressive. Any particular reason he hasn’t gotten a shot since he’s been here??? I don’t even see his name as a possibility.

    He suffered a leg injury last game of 2019, with USC track record of snail pace recovery of its injured,,,. Trojans medical staff seems not be up to snuff, ill diagnosed injuries, slow recovery of players,,,
    Can medical staffers be pouched from other programs? because something seems wrong with this current team.

    I recall Dontae raving about the size and speed of ITS, now fully recovered(we hope) should be in the mix for locking down a spot.

    Still haven't seen Griffiths run the fake punt. It would be an awesome sight to see the Australian Rules footballer steamroll some domer, duck or bruin.

    He has had some concussion issues so maybe they are being cautious with him?

    100% agree. You took him out of K-State and they regressed and his new team improved 110% . That's what good coaches do. Instant results. So why has it taken Clay Helton 6 years and he's still building?

    Snyder will be like any other 5* recruits we get. He'll regress under Helton. Soon we'll start kicking the ball out of bounds on kick offs and fair catching at the 2 yard line.

    Did you get hit on the head with a Hockey Puck?
    Snyder is the real deal!

    Agree. He needs to figure out the return aspect though. The coverage and the kickers were outstanding.

    Can you comprehend. I likened him to a 5* recruit. Another great, full of talent and potential, staff member I said that if he stays on "Helton's" staff he'll regress. Everyone and everything Helton touches get misused, under utilized, or turns to Ship.

    My point to you is that Snyder is the truest of pros, the man is immuned to such possible distractions.

    I agree he's a great coach. We've had a few coaches that were once considered great or potentially great coaches get handcuffed under Helton. Helton's lack of physical practices, playing "Loves" of his life over best players, and poor game decisions put his coaches in bad positions. This makes it hard for them to have continued success. This isn't a reflection on the coaches or their abilities. It's all about how bad Helton runs the team.
