    Former Freshman All-American a Possible Grad-Transfer for UA

    Link

    It's a 247 VIP article but judging by the picture the player is Walter Brady. He graduated from Middle Tennessee State but played for Coach Kool at Mizzou for his RS Freshman season.

    Well, given the events of the last few days, we certainly need help in the front seven. Hope he can contribute.

    Fine! If Coach K knows him and he and CNS think he can contribute to the front 7, bring him on and welcome! We`ve had enough " subtractions " for one week!

    I suggested that we might see a transfer coming to UA in light of injuries and Saban doesn't want to go through what he did last year.

    He's had some issues, but the guy gets sacks...

    FWIW, A short article on Brady leaving MTSU. This is from June and Alabama is not mentioned.

    If we could take a ticking time bomb like Jonathan Taylor, well - nothing in this short article should be an automatic "Veto".....

    It is likely he was contacted at the last minute.... and I don't think it's right to compare him to Taylor... given how Taylor situation was messed up... and how it was determined it wasn't his fault. Let's not go there...

    If Brady can help the team and stay out of trouble, I'm all for it.

    He was contacted this week.

    I am not sure that he is going to help Alabama much. He was pretty average in HS, had a single great year at Mizzou, and has been pretty average since.

    the difference here is that he is coming back to be coach by Coach Kool a familiar face that brought out the best in him. and this isn't MTSU, its Alabama where he is surrounded by a stellar group of studs. he is a warm body with experienced and just what the doctor ordered.
    if CNS wants him, I'm all in.

    Hopefully this is a positive addition.

    You won’t get the warm and fuzzies if you go read any MTSU forums right now though.

    Based on that information Coach Cochran will be a huge deciding factor on if this works out.

    Doggone - from the jersey number, the general exuberance of his body language and some physical resemblance in the photo with that article, thought the comparison to "Taylor" was LT, Lawrence Taylor....

    Lots of players were pretty average in high school and turned into studs when in the right situation. Heck, as I'm sure you know Mark Ingram was a 3*. Granted, I doubt the coaching staff is recruiting this guy with high expectations. He's probably being recruited more as a vehicle for adding an extra body for depth. If that's the case it doesn't matter if he's average or not, landing an average player is better than nothing.
