You're talking about Ginther in the Jesse Perry thread.
Because the post I replied to was talking about Ginther in the Jesse Perry thread.
So far, all of the QBs. Some bounced but Hooker and Milton were both rejects thought to be busts.
Nico and now the kid from GA will represent a change from that.
OL is absolutely a position where you are as likely or more so to see the great ones "built" rather than found. In all the argument about "stars" some things have been ignored. Both of these recent commits appear to be really, really smart. Both look very nimble on their highlights. Both show some nastiness. Both have good height and length but need bulk. All of that seems to suggest a very specific profile that they're recruiting to without any regard to stars or who else likes a kid. I don't know if it will work or not... but IIRC Heupel's OLs that dominated at Mizzou were made up of a bunch of nobodies who were well developed.
Did you see the video with the kid from Colorado? He said one of the reasons he committed is that Heupel and Ellerbe was straight with him. He asked Ellerbe where he was on UT's "board"... coach didn't try to snow him. He was 5th. That's both good and bad. One, you have to wonder where they stand with the 4 above him and who they were. Did UT miss out on better prospects? But two, it means that regardless of ratings and all of that he is considered VERY talented. I imagine everyone in the top 10 on UT's board at each position is considered a very good prospect.
