Cody Blanc Is A Baller
It is funny to look back to see posters criticizing Derek Dooley for signing Cody Blanc. They said he was too small or too slow.
I have only seen him play in the Orange & White Game and it is quite apparent that the kid is a SEC football talent. He is not too small. I'd guess from looking at him that he is weighing around 210. He was plenty fast today as he got open routinely and broke some tackles on a couple of plays.
Will Cody always line up as a receiver? I don't know. For now he is good enough to see the field as a freshmen and see a lot of quality minutes. In the future he could grow and move to linebacker or even play safety. he is that athletic and physical. I'd venture to say that he will be a big part of our special teams play this season with his size and speed.
Dooley did a great job of evaluating this talent and others failed.
