I’m disappointed when it’s not hahaha. I really like this kid. After a bit in Coach Fitz’ S&C program, he’s gonna be even more lethal than he already is. Strength, length, freakish athleticism........just for you @Glitch @chargervol TWSS!!!
Haha. I should probably just stay quiet and steal the credit but alas, not in the "twss" club.

Heck, given my phone changed it to "tess" 3 times, apparently I've never typed it out.😄

Marqise Lee? How so? Lee was a decently thick 6-0, 190 as a freshman. He beat people with strength and separation off the line whereas Wideman is maybe 4-5 inches taller, remarkably thinner, and wins with athleticism on contested jump balls. They seem like very opposite kinds of players to me. What similarities do you see?
He reminds me of either Calvin Johnson or Wes Welker. It's too hard to make a distinction.

Brandon Johnson is also returning. He led us in receiving yards in 2017. I'd say that's pretty good experience returning between him, Palmer, and Keyton. And DWA at TE. Lot's of experienced playmakers for any of our QBs to throw to in 2020. Having the same OC for another year should help as well.
DWA gone.

Rewatching that video just made me realize how impressive Gordon’s all star dunk over taco fall was.
This kid is a athlete and one of the best dunkers style wise I have seen. Excited to see him on b-ball and football team.
Gordon was robbed. Again.

Sorry, not sorry if already posted. Enjoy the rewatch.

That kid is kinda thick and has some wide shoulders to grow into and body looks more ready than Gaines and Pember in basketball. I think Wideman is going to shine in football, not too many teams are going to try to bump and run with him anyway. Looks plenty strong enough not to get jammed up and once he gets down field and it's one or even 2 on one, Wideman's basketball skills and athleticism will get him into position to catch the ball at it's highest point. Potential Freshman All-America, imo. Playing time is out there to be taken and we already know Pruitt and Chaney ain't scared to play freshman. I don't think I've been this excited about a true freshman WR since Preston Williams, didn't turn out real good for UT, but he had mad production at CSU (?) and playing in the NFL. Next year may be PWs breakout year. Anyway, damn @TDawg , u would like this, has my rambling on, Wideman will have an opportunity to shine next year, just has to seize it
