    Bill Kurelic on Wesley Lyons

    Yes, this is Devon's little brother; however, at 6'6", 185, maybe I should say that he is Devon's younger brother.

    Wesley will be a junior at Woodland Hills this fall; last season, he caught six passes.

    Wesley likes Ohio State, amongst others.

    if he grows any taller he might have to move to the line (either te or ol/dl)

    If he does, he'll have to put on about 60-100 pounds...not sure if he has the frame for that. I'll take a 6'6" wideout anyday. Need to work on his speed a bit, but that's doable...

    Wesley is in the 2006 Rivals data base, so that info is free: I linked and printed it above.

    His speed is 4.65 forty - not Nike-timed.

    6'6" is Plaxico Burress size, and he can definitely be effective like Buress (I still remember MSU tossing up those jump balls in '98 to Burress and him consistently outjumping Winfield/Plummer). However, he's only going to be a junior this year, so saying that he might grow to 6'8" isn't a stretch, and there really aren't that many guys 6'8" who're playing WR.

    LJB: Saw that after I made my post. Thanks. By the way, great find, as always.
     
  7. I believe he is the same hieght as the tallest NFL reciever, Plexico. He needs to put on good weight. He could play WR, TE or DE with that height.

    Hopefully his older brother is already recruiting him for the Buckeye Nation! IMO, we need a tall, rangy WR. Here's hoping.... :osu:
     
  11. Correct, but purdue has 6-9 Kyle Ingram, he is an absolute match up problem. I remember last year as a skinny little forsh some teams were playing wrs who were like 6-4 on him becuasue of his reach and jump ball skills. Ingram played wr like a bball 4 and played with his body well this will be the key for lyons

    Could be a good TE

    If he's not done growing yet he could turn into a monter tight end. 6'8" with 4.65 speed would be a huge target. Hopefully he likes cuz better then his big bro!

    Well Devon Lyons is Ryan Mundy's cousin

    So that would mean that the upcoming Lyons is also cousins with Ryan Mundy.
