Either way the kid is a really solid athlete. Wish we went after more athletes and figured it out after they got here in some cases.

He better not go to Bama as a DB. He's too good of a back. Can't believe we were looking Marquez Grayson more than this kid. Sometimes I just don't get it. Kind of kid you can let return kicks early on too.

You must've forgot Dr. Phil, excuse me, Nick Satan, excuse me Saban is a world renowned shrink. Freudian like. He'll play DB and like it unfortunately.

SN: see if you'd paid your $ like I told you we could've got our Bounty Gate going on. It worked for the Saints defense why couldn't it work for ours?

So Alabam could have five running backs in this class with only two being an actuall running back. Kmara will be their slot Wr, Henry will be a linebacker, and this kid will be a Db. I'm sure Saben told everyone of them that if they come to Bama that they would have a chance to be the guy at running back.

Henry won't be a LB. He's too good with the ball.

I doubt this kid goes to Bama. But hell this state is Bama crazy so who knows what happens. If I were advising him any it would be to go to Stanford as a RB. Top notch OL, less competition at RB, run heavy pro style scheme. I wouldn't think twice about it. But you know family does play a role.

Kamara has pretty much been recruited as an athlete throughout the process by Bama. One of the main reasons he hasnt pulled the trigger, imo.

Breaker is right regarding Henry. He might not be the prototype but he produces and thats all that matters

Why in the world did we wait until now when he is committed to Vandy. If we had offered earlier when we had some momentum with this kid then he might have committed to us back in the summer. I like the offer I just don't get why we waited so long.
