Looks like another RB / WR hybrid. More WR IMO.
Kid is long and fluid but also needs to get stronger.
Can't tell just how fast he is..may be that his long strides make it look effortless.
continues to say Buckeyes are no. 1....going to visit in Spring with rest of GA 2014 recruits
BN$--Autry has Buckeyes on top
Myles says tOSU is his dream school and Coach Meyer is his favorite coach. He plans to visit in the spring with Raekwon McMillan, Deshaun Watson, and Demarre Kitt.
This could make Columbus look like sub-Urban Atlanta.
All of these guys are the real deal and hope they come to Ohio State.
BN$--Versatility is 2014 Autry's Game
Myles has offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, South Carolina, and Tennessee. He says tOSU is his leader but that can change at anytime.
Prep Force: 2012 Highlights
He'll make a wonderful slot receiver. He is quick, shifty, and has nice explosion and balance, but what I'm most impressed with is the Archie-like ability to not get hit straight-on. He also does a good job catching with his hands rather than his body and, although they can be tightened up, runs some solid routes. He doesn't seem to have elite speed, but it looks fast enough. The main thing he needs to address is running over the goal line rather than coasting over it. It cost him at least once in that video and it came close to costing him several other times.
Maybe the most jaw dropping highlight reel I have seen since Devine...the reel gets better and better as you go but 1:50 Everyone do yourself a favor and watch this.
Kid has GOT to be a priority for us. Outstanding lateral movement, loses no speed off his cuts, tremendous top end speed when he needs to turn it on, and outstanding field vision...he sees the field perfectly and wastes no time going right where he needs to, which is deadly with his speed and quickness. What might set him apart at the next level is his balance though...despite his size, this kid doesn't go down with an arm tackle and his balance is phenomenal. Even if defenders manage to get a hand on him with greater game speed, that won't be enough. Needs to put that ball away though. On the receiving side, great hands and he just gets open for the deep ball and shows some skill in the intermediate routes and especially adept on screen plays. Good body control when going up for a pass too. Autry has to be the best candidate I've seen for the "Harvin" role so far...great combo of vision and running ability, combined with legitimate receiver skills. Honestly, I wish Autry was in the '13 class because we need him on the field ASAP. Putting him in the top 3 of my wish list for 2014 and luckily we have a great shot.
Edit: To piggy-back off you Hodgepodge, I think there are times where he shows near-elite top end speed but as you mention, he coasts so much at the end it makes that difficult to tell at times. There were a couple times he turned it on though and blew off the doors. Not like Demps or Ginn but almost nobody is going to catch him if he gets a step.
Perfect fit for a Meyer offense.
reminds me of a longer striding deanthony thomas
Yeah, Urban's "two seconds of maximum effort past the whistle" would do him some good. The coasting stuff won't work at the next level. With that said, this is a really, really talented human being. Wow.
Similar film to Stefon Diggs, which is high praise. Also reminded me of Eric Glover-Williams' film.
He'll have to put on some weight for sure though, especially considering the teams we're planning to face in the near future.
