agreed. Teague is more physically developed but under right S&C program Valentine has the body type to develop

Fenwick and Valentine would be a very good RB class, especially when you consider Valentine has Damiere Byrd speed except much bigger.

Until I see CB to other schools, I'm saying Dax is headed to Columbia.

A VT insider said Dax ran back to back +5.0 forties. I don't think this is a big deal because playing inside, speed isn't as important as playing on the edge.

I don't think that there are too many LB's that run a sub 5.0 forty.

I would disagree, if you did some checking virtually every LB that's even moderately highly ranked will run a sub-5.0 40.

IMO, if a VT "Insider" is posting that Dax ran multiple >5.0 40's, it's likely damage control because they don't think they'll get him, the "Insider" is downplaying losing out on him.

Hopefully good news for us.

Four-star linebacker Dax Hollifield has made a slight adjustment since SEC Country visited with him at Shelby (N.C.) High School late last month.

North Carolina and Virginia Tech have long been the primary programs contending with South Carolina, but Florida is now in the mix, too.

But first, more on his interest in the Gamecocks.

“Just how close they are to home,” Hollifield said. “They’re only 2 hours from my house. I like that. Keep my family close. I like their depth chart. They’re not very deep right now and I can step in and get some playing time.”

He returned to Columbia late last month for the SpursUp Cookout.

“It was fun,” Hollifield said. “It was just like a party. … All we did was have fun, talk — it really wasn’t much recruiting. You’re part of the family, so [they] treated [me] like family.”

Florida, which hosted him for a visit a couple of weeks earlier, is now in the picture with South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.

“I love the weather down there. Also, the same thing about the [Gators’] depth chart; they’re not very deep and I feel like they’re going to win. They have a good team. I like the coaches. [Linebackers] coach [Tim Skipper] is really great.”

Hollifield (6-foot-1, 220 pounds) is ranked as the nation’s No. 4 inside linebacker and the No. 107 overall prospect, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

Whoever is smart enough to make an accurate translation there probably has multiple PHDs

I think Dax is more along the lines of a 4.8 speed, sometimes you just don't have your best couple runs and all you need to do is be off by a couple tenths of a second to have an awful time. You don't need blazing speed to be a LB but you do need to be faster than a 5.0 40 and from his film I feel confident he absolutely is.
