Watch McCray's highlights again - the guy is clearly taller then most of the other players. I'd bet that he measures in at 6'3" or more in August.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Agreed||
ohio was meant to be the last of the three visits so I don't see any great advantage to them from this news.... I'll go with Sam Webb and continue to think we have a good shot.

He's coming for the BBQ in July with Cole.

Thank you for this annual series on the incoming "lifeblood of the program". It gets us pumped for the June enrollments and the ever-exciting Summer weigh-ins.
As always you have anticipated all of my questions before I had the chance to ask them - the picture with Gedeon silences some people's 6'1" fears (as does his highlight film where he towers over most of his teamates). Totally agree that he doesn't jump out at you yet.... he could be really solid.

Thank you Seth. Great perspective and excellent timing.
One quibble: You say "consensus five stars" but I think we are talking about Unanimous five stars. A consensus 5* would mean 3 or possibly even just 2 of the 4 ratings being 5*.

The consensus has him at about 6'3" which is fine for a SAM... and he could still grow some.

Odd that Rivals shows his Nebraska interest as "Low", while 24/7 predicts that he will wind up a 'Husker. That will all change when he gets his Michigan offer.....
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Ferns is an ILB||
Ferns seems much better suited to the inside, and it seems he was recruited to play there. I agree that he has some length and speed so could play SLB, but most scouts see him as a prototypical MLB/WLB... with emphasis on the MIKE.
EDIT- meant this as a reply to EGD who sees Fernes as a SLB.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||Jimmie Swain||
Thanks for the heads up on Swain... first I'd heard of him. He looks good and with the physical tools to play either inside or outside.
|5 weeks 6 hours ago||I think we take three||
We are definitley after a SAM prospect (Winovich or similar), and likely will take another inside guy now that Ringer is gone. It looked like that might be Watson, but we cooled on him... probably due to a meh camp performance where he measured only 5'10".

You are way too informed to really believe that DG's redshirt was for an "injury".He was slated for a redshirt but then everyone was up in arms that RR had wasted it. Then came his "back injury" after Tate came out of the doghouse... and methinks that 's why it took so long to get the extra eligibility confirmed.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||" I completely agree with you||
" I completely agree with you about redshirts, for any position. 5th year guys contributing are largely a thing of the past."
Fifth year seniors on this year's two deep:
Toussaint, Gallon, Lewan, Schofield, Q. Washington, Cam Gordon, Thomas Gordon, Brenodon Gibbons.
Throw in Devin and and Jake Ryan next year (from a totally depleted class).
It's still smart to redshirt as many kids as possible.. unless they are the best players at their position... like Peppers in 2014!

Ferns as a SAM? I guess it's possible but he plays like an inside linebacker.

"Ferns to the strong side"?
Seems like we are looking very hard for a SAM to complete this class of linebackers, so Ferns is most likely seen as an inside LB.

That horse deserves to be thrashed. I love and trust these coaches.... but they aren't perfect and they really blew that one. It's even more frustrating when amateurs like us could see it so clearly. Nonetheless, I say again, lest I be misuderstood, I would not trade these coaches for anyone in the country... and they are human.

He meant the defensive backfield when he said "back end" . Avery remains set at nickel corner and possible back-up outside.

I can see Gelen as either a WDE or even a SLB . He won the state wrestling championship at 220 lbs., so I guess it depends on how much bigger he gets. Really like his athleticism.

I always thought he looked about 5'10". Hoping for the best as he gave us so much joy. Really anxious to see his 40 time.
