    I think he is our most under hyped guy in the class... should be a strong 4 star at worst.

    Idk if he'll jump that high. And I persoanally don't want him to. Let him stay underrated and surprise everyone in the big 10 in a few years

    Say what? You think opposing coaches are looking at the former star ratings of players when they prepare for games?

    Wow, what a difference between his JR and SR film. Underrated, sure... but I think I'd say most improved. Easy to see now what the coaches apparently saw in Tracey. Kid gets after it. Looks like he can't be stopped by one O-Linemen at the HS level. Tracey is really good at shedding blocks and making the play. I think he's going to fit it really well with the guys we have committed.
     
  9. Definitely.

    His top end speed isn't remarkable, but he has a quick first step and seems to be a sure tackler. He also has a nice, tight spin move. I'm interested in seeing how big he gets after a couple years on campus.

    He plays with that aggressive chip on his shoulder attitude that the coaches are waiting to see from Adolphus. He may have less elite talent than Adolphus but he's tailor made for that that tweener DE/DT position. College strength training, I feel, is going to make him great. He already plays with leverage which is very hard to teach.

    I got to see him play live for one half this year. It was against Cuyahoga Falls, the team in all black in his highlight film. I'll make a gentleman's bet, he ends up being moved inside to DT at OSU, and does very well.

    Future DT all the way imo. Uses his hands well to get off blocks, pretty good leverage. array of moves, very strong, wraps up really well, and decent athleticism. Not the kind of first step you need as a DE at the next level but will work at DT. No real "wow" factor but he flat out produces.

    Overall, I see a fundamentally sound, strong player who is very tough to move and is always in the right place.
