    Williams is in my neck of the woods. I plan on seeing him play a few times this year. I'll be sure to take the camera with me.

    LR-looking forward to hearing your reports and seeing your pictures

    this kid sounds very, very special

    his coach is quoted in the latest Rivals article saying that he is the best player he has coached in his 10 years coaching- and he has coached 3 NFL players plus Derrick Harvey last year

    His offer list is already like a who's who of CFB-Tennessee, Florida, Ohio State, LSU, Maryland, Oklahoma, Penn State and Virginia have already formally extended offers

    How long before Petey says he will be his no. 1 guy?? :biggrin:

  6. I think our chances of landing him are slim to none. He stated that he wants to play in a conference which passes the ball a lot. The big 10 does not fit that criteria. He could change his mind, but I think he is another WR that doesn't want to block he wants to play in a spread offense.

    He sounded like he has a good head over his shoulder. As a receiver, I would like to go where the pass the ball as well, who wouldn't? I like the fact that Zwick is a great passer, and that should give the coaches more confident passing the ball more. If that plays out, then we will have a better chance then we think, especially Holmes might be leaving early...which I hope not! It would be great to land him and see him run track with Ted Ginn and company.

    If the Clarett decision holds up (as it almost certainly will) I think this is the category of player we need to look at as one or two years and gone (the top 4 or 5 CBs and WRs).

    It would be great to have kids like this, but I don't see JT (the man who redshirted Santonio Holmes) retooling his Offense to attract kids who want to play two years without throwing a block before going to the NFL. In fact, if it does prove to be the trend that this caliber athlete is a one or two year player he may not even target them.

    He is up to 43 offers and is still working to graduate early. He has not narrowed his list down yet and hopes to start doing this late in the summer.

    I don't get what you are saying. The Clarett decision will hold kids in school for three years. This is not a RS type kid.
    I think i read somewhere that he was a Buckeye fan growing up-hope I'm right. Usually I have a bad feeling about these kids, but I think if Santonio puts on a show w/ Zwick this year, we have as good a chance as anyone. That said, I predict he will attend 1 of 5 schools-Ohio State,Maryland,Virginia,Florida, or Miami. Mark it down.

    stx, Oh8ch's post is from before the decision to allow Clarett to enter the draft was overturned.

    Derrick Williams has an update on the Cane's Rivals board. He now has a top three and obviously Miami is one of them.
