this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Taco Charlton Interview
Thanks for posting.
I am really starting to like your Blog...
Great interview, especially with the way he talks about Michigan.
Has anyone seen video or watched this kid play live? I'm just trying to gauge how big (not size) a recuit he is supposed to be? If he commits, I need to know if I should squeal like a little school girl.
Well the last I knew 247 has him as a 4* and the #124 overall player for the class of 2013. But they are looking at him being an OLB.
His rankings will almost certainly be based on his potential because he still has a lot of learning to do only playing the position for a couple years.
I'm thinking the coaches are looking for a certain type of upside player on the end. Ojemudia is much like Charlton; athletic as hell but very very raw. With the proper coaching they could be potentially dominant at the college level. I'd encourage you to read the full breakdown on Taco as it's pretty detailed as to what kind of player he is.
Wow. That's was detailed. Thanks.
In the close win over cross-town rival (and Jake Butt), I was most impressed by how he was head and shoulders above the rest of both teams. Consistent with your review, aqua, though, he did not seem to be doing much with that great size and potential in that game - I'm not sure I saw him touch the North QB once or even put much pressure on him. And when the game was on the line (Central saved their season by winning by 3 in the final minute), I don't think Taco was even in for the final defensive stand against North.
I do think he had better games later in the season and it sounds like he has a lot of great potential. He also sounds like a smart, upstanding person; hope he chooses to Go Blue.
I just want him to commit because he has a sweet name.
"Who are you bumping before the game?"
I must be getting old because I thought this question was kind of perverted. I was happy to see Taco's answer.
I always appreciate you posting these interviews! He sounds like a good kid. Taco, Go Blue!!
