Good to see an athletic big guy on the team
It’s been a minute. Now, can he play SEC football at a high level? Jalen Hurd looked great on a treadmill running 20mph in the off-season and then when the games started, not so much.

That said, having a kid that massive with that type of explosion is great. If they can get his mind and technique right, we may have us a stud at nose.

Thats because Jalen Hurd, like every other player under the last regime, had no/bad coaching. Shouldnt be the case here.

Shows great potential for basketball in this vid. For football??? I think jumping over the LOS is frowned on and who the hell do we have that can catch a 30 yrd. basketball on an inside pass route? I jest,,,, hope his athletic skills translate well as we hope to the football field.

Bad coaching was a factor, but not THE reason. Biggest reason is because Hurd wasn’t who he was hyped to be. Hopefully Simmons will not only meet but exceed the hype he’s now getting.
