TomVH: Potential New Visitor
Scout lists him as an OLB and 10 pounds lighter than Rivals, so it sounds like he has some position flexibility.
Rivals 250, #17 SDE, Top 25 in California
Scout 300, #20 OLB
Offers from basically the entire Pac-10
is he a texas kid?
thanks for the update, always fun to read about the potential future of the school
EDIT- the other posts about being in cali came up after i submitted this.
for the info

|Pos: OLB||Pos Rank: #20||Pos Rating:|
|Scout.com Player Evaluation:|
More of a pass-rusher than a pass-cover guy. Good quickness off the ball, an aggressive player with good agility and lateral movement. Needs to refine his pass coverage skills.
Had 95 tackles, 45 for loss and 21 sacks as a 2009 junior at Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian. Named All-League Defensive MVP, All-CIF and L.A. Wave Player of the Year.

Perhaps it would be better for us to just post a link to the player's profile instead of just taking a screencap of the entire thing and placing it here. I know some of us aren't fans of the pay sites, but the bottom line is that without them, a lot of us would be much more in the dark about recruiting. Guys like TomVH can only do so much for free. And it's free to view a player's profile, so I don't know why a screencap is necessary.
Good night! Who did they play against? Half of your tackles being made behind the line of scrimmage is just insane.
Wasn't this kid committed to sdsu or another smaller university befor he chose smu? I think I remember seeing that somewhere at one point. I could be wrong.
I don't think so, he just had a ton of offers from bigger programs. Here is a piece from "The Top 10 Most Surprising Commitments from 2010" on Rivals:
I'm glad Anthony Zettel isn't on this list. He definitely could be.
Excellent. I am really stunned at how this recruiting has turned out. I was convinced we would have around 10-12 recruits this year. Wow. Just Wow.
Hoke has done so many things to make me jump on his bandwagon, I'm thoroughly impressed with the job he has done thus far.
Bandwagon? I think it should be called Freight Train..
I'm curious why this guy turned down some great Pac 10 schools for SMU. SMU is of course a good school, but the football program is only so so.
... He wanted to be "a big fish in a small pond"
Read my post above.
I miss the Michigan Tight End waggle.
I wonder if Hoke is trying to maximize this class in light of the fact that there may be some attrition this spring?
I love that he never gives up on a play, always seems to want to get a hit on the ball carrier.
I particularly enjoyed the late hit out of bounds highlight at the 0:50 mark.
This kid really comes off the ball. That burst can't be taught but if you pair that with a few pass rush moves, you may have yourself a very special player.
Moreland is obviously handpicked by Mattison to play his hybrid DE/OLB position. Once he puts a bit of weight on, he will be perfect for it.
Well, we know he can run after seeing that video
