He had a great game, but he's been thoroughly mediocre the rest of the season.  

Can we please stop this habit of ripping the coaches everytime a former recruit does well?

Not trying to be a dick but u watched ever BC game this year? I think today was the first game he started I could be wrong but he looked dam good today and in some other games but the BC line is bad worse then our line has been. He is gonna be a stud and yes even our coaches do make mistakes with recruits. They were no eat with him that they want red him at LB but RB was his preference. So maybe coaches should have took him as a RB. I am by no means saying I know talent better than our staff but even Saban or Urban makes mistakes with evaluating recruits it is not always 100%. In saying that Daivd Reese looks good at Florida and he would look great next to Bush because Mcray looks like he is battling an injury. Seems like last year he was of faster maybe it is me though. Anyways I am happy Higdon had a great game but dam every 5 star RB we have gotten on this roster has not lived up to it.

When a kid commits I watch the tape, read about them, get to know them a bit. If they decommit I often continue to follow when they get to school. Apologies if I am the only one who does that, but I figured there were others who would be interested. Most of the time the coaching staff saw something and these kids fade into obscurity. This was an exception.

This is like the 10th time he's been mentioned here today.  WTF?

He didn't want to come here.  Fine, we've got plenty of other backs, including one who just rushed for 200 yards himself.

Do people not get that harbaugh will move a guy around to different positions, particularly if they guy showed upside at more than one spot.
He would have started at RB and if there was a better spot for him he would go there. Harbaugh will never give promises like you will for sure play "x" position to a kid that can play more than one spot.
But Gentry, and Mason, were given shots at positions they wanted, before being told that they have better upside at another and eventually moved. This would have happened with Dillion. He wanted more guarantee he would play the position he wanted. Which is fine.
But the idea harbaugh told him he wanted him solely for backer before he went through a fall practice is against how he operates.

They do get that and that is why some choose to go elsewhere. How can you fault a guy who knows he is good enough to be a stud no matter where he goes but doesn't necessarily want to platoon? Let's be honest, if he was here he would not have had the game he had today because he would be sharing time with Higdon, Isaac, and Evans. And maybe Kareem Walker too obviously.

And I am going off of what the kid himself said in a few interviews so I wouldn't be so quick to just dismiss it. He said he wanted to be solely a RB and it wasn't a guarantee at Michigan. Seems a pretty clear statement to me
