I like him! He holds a block well and loves him some pancakes.

He's a friend of a friend and I have talked to him a couple times about his recruitment. Really was sold on James Franklin and his offer extends to PSU as well. He also really likes CBJ and staff and I think if we do extend an offer we would be #1 in his mind, however with the guys we are in on, I'm just not sure he'll ever see that offer.

His family has ties to Vandy. Someone in his family, can't remember who exactly, owns or works at Commodore Grill over near Vandy. I worked with his older brother a few years ago, and he is a huge Vandy fan and despises UT. Don't know if it will be a big factor, but worth mentioning IMO.

Haha in his Hudl video almost every single snap he was making sure the man he was blocking ended up on the ground. It didn't matter if he was on the same side of the field or not he would still make that kid eat dirt. The kid looked nasty. That's the type of mentality an O-Line should have.

I think his situation is that he would have to do the camp circuit and be very impressive to get offers. His competition on film is very weak.

Talked with a NCS dad this morning. Family owned Vandyland restaurant which is now closed, but weren't Vandy fans. The kid does not despise UT, thinks he'd go to UT if offered. Zero character issues. This kid mauls opposing players. Hope we offer.

appears kid has matured and found his way, not a Vandy fan, character issue analysis debunked, is a mauler... Ok, we'll take him 😊

It's amazing how a kid's entire personality and history can change in an hour.
