Friday, Elder is scheduled to see a couple of tight ends including Brandon Vandenburg as well as Woody Quinn.

Quinn is an extremely interesting story as he played football his freshman year of high school and then went on to play Volleyball in high school and at Pepperdine before want to give football a go. Naturally, at 6-foot-6, 250 and an explosive leaper for someone his size, Santa Ana College gave him a chance and his tape from this season is just now beginning to get out and he picked up his first offer Thursday night as Fresno State pulled the trigger.

But, that likely won't be the last as Tennessee, Auburn, San Diego State, among others have taken a serious interest in Quinn.

I hate to that guy again Ron but I want guys that love football. Choosing volleyball over football isn't part of a championship resume IMO.

I know it happens but for every gates there are countless others that proved that their love for the game wasn't high enough for them to be successful. Sure there are examples to contradict everything in life but as a general rule if something's not a passion for a person they can't achieve greatness.

I am darn sure doing that with jones. I am not a very big fan at all of the spread but am choosing to have a positive outlook. I appreciate your info you being here a lot and certainly don't mean to be that guy all the time.

Yes but you made a blanket statement about his choosing Volleyball...

maybe he was more developed at Volleyball and wanted to pursue his chances. maybe he was thinking about trying to make the olympic team, maybe he took on a challenge and met it head on...

for you to judge him as not having a championship resume without knowing a single thing about him or his character is rather silly.

Well Seems like a fast learner,coach-able. We need some TE's. If the staff thinks he can play, I,m OK with that.

If he chose to play volleyball then he clearly had more of a passion for that than football. The reason for that choice is irrelevant. I cant imagine having concerns about a kids lack of passion for a sport being silly. In fact it is very relevant and basically all we have to go on here. The point is he better have freakish talent if he is to overcome his lack of football experience and lack of real commitment to the game IMO.
