|2 days 15 hours ago||He's 6ft 200lbs at corner and safety.||
He's got plenty of size at the corner or safety spot. His frame can likely push him upwards of 220 or so if he really tried to add weight.
|2 days 15 hours ago||He told me he was up to 198 last week also.||
I think he will hit 206 or so by Spring, which will all be good weight. I think he will fair very well with the Oline Drevno is putting together.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Absolutely.||
I talk with him a few times a week. He loves Michigan. He's been doing very well at practice and is eagerly anticipating his opportunity. I think the staff has plans to shirt him which isn't a bad thing necessarily. He will be very tough to keep off of the field next season. We will get a chance to see him play in the Spring for sure barring something unforeseen this season. Very excited for him.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Depends on the scheme.||
He's pretty versatile. He can play field, boundary or either safety spot. Ideally he would make a pretty unique hybrid db that has the flexibility to drop in coverage and play closer to the LOS. He has a nose for the pigskin and bad intentions when he gets there. Solid ball skills also.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Haven't put him on a laser.||
He's an explosive athlete and has run several hand held 4.5s in front of our staff and apparently the Lake Wales staff as well. Nothing to hide on him.
|2 days 16 hours ago||If he gets to 215...||
He will make receivers very uncomfortable across the middle of the field. He will excel in run support also.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Here is Josh's sophomore film when I had him.|
|2 days 18 hours ago||There is so much talent down here.||
Our freshman team has about 9 kids we think will be D1s. I have a freshman named Zydarian Grable that is going to be a monster. We have a '17 corner Zahodri Jackson that is going to be a hell of a player too.
|2 days 19 hours ago||He's getting a lot of looks and has a pretty solid offer sheet.||
Michigan just now became aware so it's about what they like him as and how much. He can definitely play here in my opinion.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I think he will stay 4.5 range up to about 215 or so.||
This kid is very strong in the legs and he's put together. Even at 220 he's going to play 4.6 which is plenty fast. As of now he's legit 4.5 and he really plays angry. Pretty cool seeing as how he's a grade A kid off the field.
|2 days 19 hours ago||He did a while back.||
They like him at the "Husky" position which is their hybrid DB spot.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Michigan got his info today and we will see where it goes.||
This kid is a player and at 200 lbs and 6ft, he's got a college body already. Character guy as well. Recruiting is really weird sometimes. A guy like this has a serious offer sheet but is a mystery to big schools like Michigan. Josh can play multiple positions and brings some serious fire to the game. Him and Karan are pretty close and we had them on the same squad a few years ago. This kid is one of those few guys that you can envision in the NFL one day. Legit 4.5 speed and ideal size for DB. He has the physical potential to grow into an OLB. I think he fills out ideally at about 215 or 220 and mans a safety spot on Saturday afternoons.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Here are the numbers.||
I'm not sure but I believe he has a pair of fumbles offset by a pair of rushing TDs. Jake is not the worst QB in the B1G. He also is not the best. The lack of ability to hit a deep ball is literally what keeps us from being a serious playoff Contender. He's been up and down to say it best. I'm looking forward to a QB with far more arm talent next season in O'korn. That being said, Jake has done a decent job of running our offense. When a QB routinely misses open deep throws and throws more picks than scores it simply is not possible to call that "good" quarterback play. Hopefully he gets better as the season goes on. We will need him to be more accurate in the coming months for the B1G title race.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Michigan is a QB away from being a Playoff team.||
O'korn will hopefully change that narrative. Next year's team will have to replace some good Linebackers...but aside from that...Yikes. Michigan is a likely top 5 team next year. The problem is the schedule.
|6 days 14 hours ago||This defense may be our best in 18 years.||
Rudock really bothers me though. ...he is so average it hurts.
|6 days 15 hours ago||The offense simply needs more explosion.||
Plays that go for first downs would go for touchdowns with higher grade personnel. This offense is still in its adolescence but it will need improve soon.
No idea why you onside there. Wow.
|6 days 15 hours ago||The play has to go to the sticks.||
OLINE is playing absolutely terrible.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Izzo has a monster class. Wow.||
Can't even hate on this class. Pressure will be on them to win it all.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Very important to get a stop and another score here.||
2 score lead in this game will be the equivalent to a 3 score lead in most games. Defense looks good again today.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Offense is tough to watch.||
Missed blocks all over.
Once Michigan gets a better QB in here this team will really take off.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||I think 29 drafted in 3 years is more the reason.||
The last 3 QBs under Fisher have all been drafted 1st round and Jameis went #1 overall.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Lol.||
If you think this doesn't happen at Every major university....Lol. the kid didn't steal anything. You guys need to chill with the witch hunt. It's pathetic at this point.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Wilson is not 3rd string.||
Wilson will play before Robinson and Donnal. He may be one of our most talented players and can block shots. We need rebounding and defense in the paint....badly.....I'm all set on the entire team jacking 3s from everywhere.
|27 weeks 6 hours ago||Smart Kid!||
Welcome Peters! It's damn great to have you!
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Watch O'Korn. He has MAJOR upside.||
I understand that he will sit out this year. It will be hard for any qb to beat him out in the future. That kid is legit. His freshman tape at Houston is very promising. He will play on Sundays.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||If we add a Shonn Miller for example...||
And return Levert...Irvin...Walton...MAAR. ..Wilson and Dawkins...we will have the same type of athleticism. Add Doyle as a thumper in the paint and the savvy of Spike and you've got yourself a well balanced ball club. That roster can and will make a deep run next year.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||I think MSU plays a rugged brand....||
Which allows them to slow games down and use brawn to match up with almost anyone. MSU can also shoot it great from outside and has two great guards. They're overall athleticism and ability to run is what sets them apart in this tourney.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Kid is a high level athlete.||
People need to stop with the 3 point emphasis. We cannot continue to live and die by the doggone 3 ball. We need more athletes that have an edge and this kid has that. I think hed be a great addition. We don't need another guy jacking 3s all over the place. We need defense and rebounding...athleticism.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Not a bad choice.||
Harbaugh will land a good QB or two this cycle. Would've been great to get this kid thoUgh.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Marquette and Pitt are very solid teams.||
Those 2 offers are substantial.
