    I watched his highlights and the kid has a huge wingspan and thus ...a huge tackling radius. Glad to have him on board with us!

    Looks like he would make a great WR or TE but I bet he's gonna end up at outside backer.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Drew was upgraded to a 5* today and it is well deserved.

    Lots of time left, and Oklahoma won't quit recruiting.

    In our favor is the need at LB, Saban's track record as a defensive coach (all-time great), Riley's track record as a defensive coach (not good at all, even by Big 12 standards), Saban's record as a recruiter, and the fact that the kid's not from Oklahoma. Don't know who he grew up rooting for.

    Time, though, is not on our side. While Saban is a great recruiter, Riley's no slouch, and he has no small amount of time to flip him back. The vulnerability is less than it was before the early signing period, but there's still roughly six months to go until then.

    Serious question: Are there any stats on kids who flip this early? As in, "Of the recruits who commit to one school, then flip to another with 6 months or more left until signing day, what percentage stick with their second commitment?" The obvious concern is that if the kid will flip once, does that indicate uncertainty on the kid's part and/or a predisposition to flip again? How much does the amount of time left for other schools to get in his ear (whether the original school or another one altogether), affect the eventual outcome?
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    He flipped from OU for a reason. He said the way we play defense and the way the Big12 plays defense is the reason he flipped and said his decision is final. Saban against Riley in recruiting is a mis-match. Of course anything can happen but I don't see it happening and I am not going to worry at all about this one.

    If I’m Lincoln Riley, I’d have Jalen talking to this kid 24/7.

    Homer take incoming...

    What could Jalen honestly say? I came here because Nick Saban let a guy younger than me start because he was better.

    Here is an article form 247Sports on why they made Drew a 5* and the #13 recruit in the nation. He might be my favorite player in this class. I like the pro comparison of the Cowboys LB Vander Esch.

    Looks like a guy that plays right away. Great size and speed combo. These HS athletes are so well developed physically nowadays.
