Of course I can help you, Coach Heupel.

I’m talking about backs that we’ve just been legitimate contenders for. I know Cobb listed us in his top 4-5, but we were never really contenders and it was always Auburn or Clemson wasn’t it?We haven't landed any top 10 type RBs in years. At least not from the high school ranks. Not since Jalen Hurd.
He’s a kid. Could it be he had much more to prove his sophomore year and as a junior he had already “arrived?”It will be interesting to see what this kid does his senior year. He was much more impressive his sophomore season than as a junior. Maybe there was an injury or something that hampered him. He displayed best RB in the country ability as a sophomore. Not nearly as impressive as a junior. Before anyone pulls out the flame thrower, just go watch his hudl highlights for both seasons.
That's a possibility. He transferred to IMG Academy for his junior year. That alone creates various possibilities.He’s a kid. Could it be he had much more to prove his sophomore year and as a junior he had already “arrived?”
Motivation or “want to” is a huge factor that imo, often times gets lost in the evaluation process.
We've had some success. You at least kick the tires. Not every talented kid wants to stay instate. This just doesn't appear to be one of those kids. But....I agree, because GA seems much more ripe for the picking.
I will take him if we can get him.Don't think he's the top back in the class. The Tatum kid in Texas and maybe Tovani Mizell are better imho. Jerrick is good at everything but not sure what trait he is exceptional in. He's definitely not the best back in the last 3 years tho lol
You didn’t specify that recruits he’s gotten while here are guys we and other top schools wanted. JWT, Cam Miller, Sampson, Slaughter, Keith. I agree they’re not eye popping but he’s had about 1.5 years to build his reputation at the D1 level. Multiple seasons at NC Central and Rice doesn’t exactly give you clout.
