    Taivon has some incredible track times, but winning summer AAU track nationals (a great accomplishment) is not the same as being #1 in the nation.

    For example, his 400m time of a 47.51 is fast (Really FAST!), but the top HS times in the nation are over a second faster (46.41 & 46.44) and are only going to drop as the season moves on. Many of the top national track kids do not compete in these meets.

    Either way, he is a burner that can play football. Which probably can't be said about the majority of the top track kids.

    *Further thought, it would be interesting to see his times if he lived in Florida, Texas, etc. I know the joke about "southern speed" but having a whole year to train vs 8/9 months does have an impact. Anyway, back to football....

    He reminds me of Deshawn Jackson a little. I havent seen this thread near the top so this is the first time I'm aware of this young man. Anytime a HIGHLIGHT reel is over 10 minutes long you know the player is very talented, here's hoping we get Taivon.

    I haven't seen him mentioned in a while. I wonder if we cooled on him and went after other players instead. He'd be a great addition in the slot in our new offense. I think he and quick are comparable players. Get them the ball in space and watch them work. I may be wrong though, opinions

    Is there a chance he pulls the trigger for us soon?

    This one baffles me. I'm not sure the staff would take his verbal right now with Allen and others still in the mix.

    Why not, IMO, he is better than anyone we are currently recruiting outside of Foster.

    I'm not sure I agree with that statement. You might be right, but I'm not ready to say that about Jacobs.

    I'm with you. Great athlete, but I think we take 2 more WR's and frankly, I would think the staff would have Foster, Gibson, and Allen ahead of Jacobs...plus maybe Lavonte Whitfield/Cornelius Elder. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see Jacobs in this class but I saw the offer as contingent upon what the aforementioned WRs do.

    That may very well be true, but I feel Meyer wants more of a guy who can score from any position and any part on the field. IMO, we have enough route runners, we need gamebreakers that's when we become a juggernaut.

    Remember, this isn't the standard offense we are used to, we need guys like Taivon Austin, Jeff Demps,Ted Ginn, Percy Harvin to make this offense work.
