    yea but he had #1 overall recruit hype didn't he? I think he at least fits with Robert Foster as a player who didn't reach his hype. Idk he's an interesting case. I've been pretty happy for him and his NFL success to date though.

    Another borderline case is Robert Foster. He was on the team for four years, but only produced in small doses. He was a solid his last year, but was constantly overshadowed by other receivers around him. The fact that he’s now showing signs of being a breakout player with the Bills shows how much potential production we missed out on.

    I wouldn’t call him a miss per se, but definitely a disappointment compared to the hype that surrounded him.

    yeah - I was thinking about it from a pure talent standpoint, not really from the missed production standpoint.

    Foster certainly match the hype with production for sure, but to your point, the talent is starting to show for him now. If I recall, he had to fight through a few injuries during his time in Tuscaloosa and that was what kept him somewhat limited.

    others mentioned Hand, and I wouldn't put him in that category. He played a lot, even as a freshman. the thing that kept him from getting even more PT was a completely beastly DL rotation of guys who were here before him; namely A'Shawn Robinson, Reed and Jonathan Allen - all 1st and 2nd round picks.

    For a #1 overall recruit I can agree but I don't think Hand can be mentioned with Love and Sims and he had a better career than Robert Foster but it is somewhat close.

    Robert Foster's problem was Jalen Hurts tendency to focus on his primary too long. If he had a QB who spreads the ball around like Tua then he'd went in the top 3 rounds at a minimum.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Re: Status of Anoma

    These comments are responses to several posts. In the limited time Eyabi played last year, he flashed off the chart physical talent. I really expected him to blow up this year, and maybe be a CFB superstar in a year or maybe two if he stayed that long.
    Anoma and Alfano have totally different body types, and while both may be athletically gifted enough to play the others position, that would never happen. Just not maximizing either players talent.
    As far as Locksley, unfortunately that is the new trend in CFB. with the transfer portal and recruiting shenanigans, I expect more of the same moving forward instead of the old loyalty and gratitude for opportunities. Especially when that much money is involved for coaches.
    to 16 and beyond........

    Spoke with someone who knows Anoma. He said he has never really felt like he fit in with the bama program, and that it is not a given he transfers to Md. He said Anoma is not leaving because he is being lured by Locks. He would probably be gone whether Locks was at Md or not.

    It takes a special person both mentally and physically to play at Bama and not all are cut out to do it. Good luck to him and I do expect him to make it to the NFL if he gets his mind right.

    If I remember correctly, Tyler was an offensive tackle, and we recruited him at about 275# and he could not gain good weight. His problem was never about ability or effort. You just canít play offensive line at that weight in the SEC!

    With what I have seen and heard, I would say that is accurate.
