    Congrats, Eli!!!
  4. The fact that we have the 4th ranked CB in the nation enrolling early, and under the impression that he needs to ask (and hope) that Coach Meyer lets him go to the Prom tells me that we have a great player on his hand who doesn't feel entitled because of his skills.

    This is one of those kids that I picture us talking about in 3-4 years and saying that he not only was great on the field but was also a great ambassador of the university off the field...

    I really don't want to, for Eli's sake, but it's almost impossible not to compare him to Malcom Jenkins.

    Why just because they're both from new jersey? I would rather him compared to Shawn springs when he leaves

    That, yes. But also because theyre both tall cornerbacks who were/are coming into a defensive backfield missing a starter with the opportunity to play early. Above all though the the bit mentioned above about how Eli is a well raised young man who's going to make us proud on and off the field - which Malcom has shown in spades with all of the charity work hes involved with.

    Gotcha. Eli, like Malcolm, is a high character guy that fans can't help but root for. Our secondary should look good for a while. I thoroughly enjoy watching elis highlight film

    Rivals--Eli Makes Change to Honor Family

    Eli has adopted the last name of the man who has raised him since age two. Eli Woodard is now Eli Apple in honor of Timothy Apple.

    It sounds like Tim Apple is one heck of a man.

    I'm glad he's coming in early to get some strength work in. He will be a good insurance policy if Roby leaves. Doran Grant and Roby look like the CB tandem next year with others, including Apple pushing for the #3 spot.
