Maybe a bit as a dime LB kinda like mosely did in his first year, but since Mack had that role last year I think it would only be if mack needed a rest.
    I don't think anyone really knows how much he weighs at this moment. we will all know once he steps on campus. but what is certain is that most in the know have all stated that his weight loss reported by Washington fans are untrue.

    Absolutely Jam, and I`m in no way trying to intimate that I don`t think he won`t be possibly a great one for us. Roquan Smith played at around 235, I believe, last year.

    Its possible for him to play some at special teams and possibly deep in tge rotation if needed.

    But safe bet may be rs year.

    But there's no telling given the need at ILB

    Regardless, this is a fantastic addition and takes some pressure off a portion of need for next years class.

    guess I wasn't clear so I'll re-frame it. I was thinking about and answering the question about being in the rotation right now. If he had to play this season, 2018, at 218lbs, I'd be worried. Smith left UGA at 235ish and even Evans was only 220 coming in and was also 235ish. Kaho's got lots of time to get bigger and stronger so not concerned at all longer term.

    I am more worried that he lost weight when going through those tough times. I have lost weight due to stress and it effects more than just the way that you look. I hope that he gets healthy, mentally and physically. Football will come.

    It sounds like a great get for us, but, if the issues he claimed to get his release from UW are anywhere close to accurate, this looks like another one of those high-risk propositions that usually do not end well.
    i am pessimistic, but I hope I’m wrong.

    Like has been mentioned with the new redshirt rule he can be inserted against these smaller teams this year and play his 4 games to see if he is truly ready or not.
    I need you out there slinging coconuts and pineapples!
