His junior film was not overwhelming ,but Sam Webb says that he had a monster senior season with something like 170 tackles. Rivals shows him at 6'3" so he may have had a Ryanesque Jr. to Sr. growth spurt. He is fast and might be a good fit at SLB if he can put on enough good weight.
Update on Jamieon Moss
Moss thread yesterday had more info and the headline seems like recruiting news.
Is a link or something missing.
did your read the whole post? He'd be a good SLB. I didnt know that before viewing mgoblog this morning.
I also would have learned he needs more weight - which I'd never guess for a 210 lb HS kid who will apparently play SLB in the B1G.
i thought we weren't going after anymore linebackers. are the coaches thinking that ryan might declare?
Poole and Ringer both missed the season due to injury.
Do we know what the injuries to Poole and Ringer were? Or are they just "boo-boos"?
IIRC, Poole's was a pec injury and Ringer's was a knee.
We have offered several LB in the last couple weeks, starting with Reschke.
I think we are losing a LB, probably not Ryan; more likely one of the old redshirt freshman.
...here. And only here. Because they are ridiculous. And unfounded. And ridiculous. And did I mention ridiculous?
I actually don't know if his measurable a at the combine would even be that great. There's a reason the coaches repeatedly call him an unorthodox player who gets the job done. He just has football smarts and knows how to get to the ball by any means necessary. That doesn't show up in non-football drills. And as far as who's leaving I think it's gonna be a younger guy, maybe Poole. You just said yourself Ryan could make more money by waiting. I don't think he's even considering it.
Ridiculous if Ryan jumped, and dumb if he considered it. His season was definitely very good, but it is far and away, and really not even close, to the kind of dominating season that would raise his stock to the point that it makes sense for him to jump. Not that others haven't done it after similar seasons, but mostly that hasn't worked out. A great season next year and he'll be in far, far better position to go.
I haven't read anyone citing a single source or even Jake even hinting at NFL. Guesses but I wouldn't say ridiculous.
I'd still like a rumor of Reschke going big time with UM ...
Brady Hoke said that Lewan was the only underclassman who's being evaluated by the draft board, and he said he does not expect any others to ask for an evaluation.
should be put to bed. Good for us. Onto the next rumor ....
Did he get an Honorable Mention? That's not enough street cred to even get a look as a free agent at the next level.
Injuries, Poole, Ringer. The other one would be someone is leaving, either transfer or via draft. My guess is the coaches know a player is leaving.
Quit teasing us and post it already!
Snippet from a Hokies website: Moss stands 6-foot-3, weighs about 217 pounds and has been timed at 4.61 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He used those skills to collect 107 tackles, eight tackles for loss and three sacks to earn All-Northeastern Coastal 2-A/3-A Conference honors last season.
Rivals said he squatted 580, which is rather incredible, since former Michigan target Gary Yerden set a state record deadlifting 630, and weighed over 100 lbs more at the time. Maybe he did, but I can't imagine someone 100 lbs lighter putting only 50 lbs less than the deadlift record on their shoulders.
Yergen walked on to the football for a short amount of time.
Yeah, he had the preferred walk-on status offered to him based on his size and 1 really impressive deadlift.
He made it through all of 3 weeks of training camp before quitting and moving to North Carolina to help out a sick
You know a person can squat a lot more than they can deadlift, right? 580 is a lot to squat, but not to the point where it's unbelievable. I had a buddy in HS who could squat 620.
I do, and it's even easier for shorter guys. We had a kid who was barely 5'6" lifting the most on our team consistantly. Either way 580 is pretty incredible for an athlete.
What about his motor? Does he have a good motor? I love kids with good motors and based on absolutely nothing more than my ability to type words on a computer screen I love his motor.
And his pad level. His pad level is nothing short of amazing and is second only to his motor in thrillingness.
Oh.....and his football smarts. I mean the kid just flat out makes plays. What with his motor, his pad level and his football smarts well....I mean you just cant go wrong here cause he's making plays. FOOTBALL PLAYS!
Or that he's "deceptively fast"
FWIW reportedly only gives 109%
And I'm hearing football when he plays. I mean, I'm hearing football!
