i still love the irony in getting a beast out of Anderson, SC named Pickens!!! it makes me smile! Oh and he’s a pretty good football player too.

I can attest the write up on Zacch is 100 percent on the mark.
He is a very well-mannered, respectful young man who really tries to best represent himself, his family and his community.

If I was in school and was being bullied, I'd want Zacch on my side.

Also, he is a very positive guy and a leader in the locker room. If you went to a Hanna game, he is the first one out through the banner, is always next to the head coach in the postgame huddle and leads by example.

We are getting a good one...he will be a fantastic ambassador for the university, regardless of what he does on the field. And, he is a model student in the classroom, and I doubt we have to worry about him hanging around 5 points in the wee hours of the morning.

NOt sure if there is room for him, but OL Darius Washington has not yet signed with Miss. State.

I don't know if we are still taking him with the signing with Jakai now in the fold, but may still be one to keep an eye on.

At 230lbs, that isn't slow. People need to get off this kick of all running backs need to be sub 4.5.. You can't tell the difference in that .2 seconds. Its mainly about their acceleration and explosion. He tested off the charts in the shuttle.

Yeah 4.5 is fine. No one was catching squeaky Watson.


Was Green expected to sign today?

So that's 17 signed so far and 2 misses this morning (Hopper and Bedford).


Last year we had 23 that signed in December. This year we have 17, but I also think the 2 transfers here count against this class, so that makes 19 total, with room for 6 more? Anyone have an accurate list on who we are seriously considering now?

No, JUCO rules prevent him from signing in December since he isn't an EE.

He will sign in February.

We can sign 23 total because Cook and Belk count against the 25. So we have 6 spots remaining w/ one of those spots reserved for Jahkeem Green to sign in February.

The guys we know that are on the board going into January:

Jammie Robinson
Darius Washington
Jashawn Sheffield
Jacquaze Sorrells
DeQuan Watts
Shiloh Sanders
Xavier Leggette*

*possible as a greyshirt

Green will sign in February, and Davis should sign today too. That would put us at 19. Cook and Belk make 21, leaving 4 additional spots available.

I think we're still looking at Darius Washington (OL commit to Miss St.), Jashawn Sheffield (WR commit to Auburn), Jaquaze Sorrells (DL), Dequan Watts (DB), and Jammie Robinson (DB). I think the ship has sailed on Steele. Probably signed with Florida today, but we won't know until January 5.

Won't Leggette count towards 2020 if he greyshirts? Also, we're still waiting on Devontae Davis's LOI which would put us at 18 signees today. With Green making 19, we should only have 4 spots left.

I just want to say how awesome our class is this cycle. Even if we don't land another player, the guys we have are going to be special. Everybody should be really thrilled with the guys we're bringing in.

That is a shame - I was hoping he would have my back if I was getting bullied in Five Points. I guess I will just have to hang out in the Vista, LOL.

People also need to look for vision, patience and catching out of the backfield.
In today's game it isn't necessarily how fast you run a 40, shuttle is the true determination of quickness in space.

also, our staff clearly is looking for backs with bigger bodies who can grind a game...Harris fits that mold.

It is not just about how well you test, but how well you also fit a team's scheme. Harris probably would not work in an air raid type offense with quicker, smaller backs...but in our type system, he fits.
