    I did not comment on his "get-off", that was Harmost. I did say that something "seemed" to be lacking in the film I watched, especially in relation to his eye-popping measureables. Btw, I thought of Hand myself, but restrained from mentioning him, hoping Alfano can be a bit more productive. Though Hand was a legit starter and had his moments. Anyway, I'm just essentially a follow-the-football type fan, I gladly defer to the coaching staff.

    Good to see you posting.

    Didn't mean to direct that towards you just answering the question before. If Hand would have stayed healthy he would've been late 1st to 2nd grade based of measurable.
    I'll be around a little more because I just finished my undergraduate degree at UA and planning my next move MBA, MS or job.

    Great to hear, Jam. Always enjoy your posts. Agree with previous poster, let an employer pay for your graduate degree if at all possible. The government paid a large portion of mine, for which I gladly repaid with four years in uniform. My best ( and fun ) years at UA were in grad school. I had to work too hard with my studies in undergrad to really enjoy it. Congrats on the undergrad degree!

    True, but in our scheme now we typically have a DL who is lined up outside on the other side from the JLB. Thats the Jon Allen counterpart to the Dalvin and Payne. Hand was in that role last year and wasn't very productive due to his lack of burst, even before he was banged up. At his current size he'd be slated for that end of line DL role moreso than the interior guys like Payne and Dalvin since they are almost always just a bit over 300lbs, but he could certainly grow into an interior DL

    Antonio is committing on Friday and we currently have 17 of the 18 CB's. Looks like he will be our next commit. Saw his Opening regional video and he could not be stopped and he had a nasty, pumped up mentality.

    UA loves the kid. Will be a 5-star by NSD.
