Cole Adam is announcing today. :)
Interesting little guy!!Appears to be tough as nails with outstanding hands,goes and gets it,blocks,and has great vision running it after catches and special teams. Doesnt seem to be exceptionally quick,nor fast,until you see his recorded times in the 100+200 meters and the 60 meters!!!...He is plenty of those things unless he is running downhill with the wind...

Seems like every cycle we recruit a guy like this. Smallish, quick, fast. Bolden, Leary, Earle come to mind , I think the staff is looking for the next waddle, I don't blame them, maybe one of these guys is that dude.

You are right about Bolden. He was smallish.Not a shrimp. But kind of smallish.But the quick,fast stuff?...For Slade?..Not quite sure about that..Now are you aware of the sizes of Aaron Anderson? Or Kobe Prentice? Or Kendrick Law? Or Isaiah Bond? And how smallish,quick,and fast they are?...Maybe none are Waddle. But who is?

The article throws some slight shade at Oregon, which is at least as known for buying recruits with Phil Knight money as aTm is with oil money.

Not that that’s illegal anymore. Just that given the vehemence of Jimbo’s protestations against Saban’s statements, and the Ags’ support of his statements, I’m guessing the Ags don’t grasp the concepts of either (1) irony, or (2) protesting too much, all that well.

You’d think they’d get that that’s part of the game now, and the only reason they’re relevant is because they throw as much as anybody at recruits.

Eli Holstein came in 8th at initial day of the Elite 11 camp. Did I read that right, and will there be more rankings and evaluation numbers that come out of that?

I wouldn't put too much into that.... Cooper Bateman and Blake Barnett had great showings at the Elite 11 and we see how that transferred over to their college careers..
He’s not in their top 11 after day 2, kind of stings that the Briarwood kid is number 5. I do agree with the sentiment that an Elite 11 performance doesn’t necessarily predict college performance, but struggling in the pro day workout yesterday could be troublesome.

I've recently watched a few brief videos of EH.

My initial, very uneducated opinion, is he looks very mechanical with his throwing motion. It looks like he has a lot of zip on his ball but it makes me wonder about his accuracy.
