Agree .He has said he is visiting this Saturday so this issue may be settled then.Would not be surprised at all if he decommits Sunday or Monday based on what he finds out on his visit Saturday
He’s supposed to visit us NEXT weekend...might not make it.

Juju ran a 4.7 in college,I wouldn't really put much stock in it.Speed matters but if u can run consistent routes,be in ur spot and block decently id much rather have that guy.Id also like the kid runs a 4.4 and still has all those traits though just making a point.
One day people will learn that 3 cone and shuttle drills are so much more important than the 40

Tennessee still is recruiting Barber, and he has talked about returning to Knoxville soon, but he’s obviously still looking around at other options and I think the Vols are, too. It’s a situation to monitor. He’s not a bad player, but Tennessee obviously could use some impact receivers in this class. Tee Martin also wasn’t on staff when Barber committed, so you have to keep that in mind, too.

That’s not to say the Vols are going to choose to part ways with him any time soon. But it’s something to keep an eye on, I think, especially since Barber has continued to look around and visit other schools.

Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens neither approached elite speed. Yet they are the 2 best WRs to ever play.
Randy Moss was the best WR to ever step on a field.
He changed the way defenses play coverages.

Rice was the model of hard work and consistency. But he did not change the game of football.
Owens- does not deserve to be in the same conversation.

Your argument is only valid if you are talking about pure natural ability. In that there is no debate. Moss is the most gifted. Was he the best? No way. Rice and Owens were both superior in almost every facet. The. Stats prove it.

Both practiced and trained harder. Moss was superior to Owens in route running.

Nope. Only thing Moss really had over them was speed and jumping. Give me TO over Randy.
Owens was notably horrible on routes. Hands weren’t anything to write home about either. He was a force of nature player and didn’t take plays off...as Moss was wont to do. This isn’t about preference. When he wasn’t stabbing his QB in the back and dividing his teams, TO was a powerhouse. Moss didn’t want it as bad as much of the time, but speed and hands were superior to Owens and he knew what a route looked like.

And Rice was heads above both of them. No matter what his top speed was, he never got caught from behind. Most likely because he didn’t lose speed in and out of his routes.
