again, because we have room and need RBs.
However, I have not understood the incredible amount of hype he has gotten on here. (Yes, the hype long pre-dated the RR firing and persisted while we had the best RB in the country locked up, so the answer cannot be "he'd be great in Hoke's system). Can someone explain this? He is the 77th RB to Scout and a 5.6 rating on rivals. He has great size for a RB, so that's not artifically depressing his rankings.
CMU is the only other school going after him. What gives? It can't JUST be grades - grades don't play the biggest role in recruiting rankings and schools tend to continue to pursue good players that are borderline. It has to be the case that a ton of schools have taken a look and were not interested.
