    Could be thinking of someone else, but I think he wants to study an engineering field (?). Pretty sharp young man.

    [QUOTE=Tideflyer;3235257]Well, obviously we physically don`t have room for all of these guys, unfortunately, but if we fill out our remaining slots, especially if that includes Sanders, Dean and Webb IMHO, I`m not sure anyone will catch us for # 1 class, however important that might be in reality. Man, that was a long sentence![/QUOTE]

    He reminds me of a quicker/shiftier Ezekial Elliot with Todd Gurley Power/Speed.

    He's in that 6'1 200 range with a 4.5 40.

    Not big like Henry who was like 6'3-6'4 240.

    Thought I saw someone say Sanders weighs 240. Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me.

    At any rate, if he has the qualities you speak of, he'll be good wherever he goes. If he comes to Bama, he could easily be our next Bama RB that wins the Heisman.

    You did and that is not right. His profile says he is 6' and 216 lbs. Similar build and style to Kenyan and has good vision and breakaway speed.

    So did hand before he understand the rigors of engineering and college football. Our engineering dean is exceptional routinely beating out mit and Harvard at robotic competitions. He has got us a few players like hand as well.

    We have a better shot than most think. Stevenson as well.

    Re: So, Who`s Left on the Board?

    The BOL guys continue to say Alabama takes around 28 guys.

    Going by the best count I can get, Alabama has 83 scholarship players after the Cowan and Davis news. There are 12 or 13 seniors on the team (Holcombe makes it 13). I don't expect 13 guys to declare early for the draft, so we're going to see some more departures before the 2019 season starts to make room for all of the guys signing.

    Now, some of those guys might be asked to either grey or blueshirt. We'll need to keep that in mind.

    You`d absolutely have to be an EXCEPTIONAL scholar and athlete to negotiate an engineering curriculum AND play major college football. Not saying they`re not out there, but they`re a miniscule minority, I would submit.

    Re: So, Who`s Left on the Board?

    Agree 1000000000%...I'm not saying it's impossible. I'm just saying that it's impossible. I watched 3 players walk into our freshman engineering class (one of whom played in and now coaches in the NFL...SUPER smart player and student). They were in there for 3 weeks. Next thing I know, they're in the business school..

    Here's one of the main reasons why: Most engineering courses have an accompanying lab that is required for the course. The lab times are almost never the same day or same time slot as the class. So it's like having an extra class. So you're taking a 90 minute class plus a 120 minute lab for 3 hours of credit. And that's just one class. It stinks. So that on top of the fact that being a D1 athlete is basically a full time job.....again...I'm not saying it's impossible. I'm just saying it's impossible.

    Chuck is a good salesman though. He's doing what's asked of him.

    I had him for a Numerical Methods class in 1994 when he was in the Engineerig Mechanics department. I had done very little programming and it was a 500 level class. I spent a bunch of time in his office because the class was kicking my butt. He seems like a pretty neat guy.

    My crew doesn't care too much for him. LOL. When he was named Dean,the first thing he did was dissolve our department (Industrial Engineering). Richard Shelby was cutting checks around that time and they erected a science building in his name (that was less than 15 years ago and the building already looks outdated). And then he created a department that was "encouraged" by Shelby's team to replace the IE department. Something along the lines of Construction Engineering. I didn't care too much. I was trying to get out the door and start my life.
