    Without watching film, he reminds me alot of Manny Lawson, a real tall guy that uses speed rather than power.

    I LOVE tall defensive ends. Thats just me personally. Especially athletic ones. Why? They block passes easier, generally have more upside, usually have longer arms, and have more room to hold good weight as opposed to a 6'1 defensive end.

    Sounds a little bit raw with a huge upside. Gotta love guys like that.

    Wonder why we aren't pursuing as hard.. That last update from Rivals made it sound like we've cooled, but that he'd be very interested in hearing from staff and our recruits.. But then that newspaper article says we're going after him harder than everyone else..

    Any of you guys know which is the case?? Is he still on the OSU rader?

    We have not cooled...grades could be the only hold up but the staff is very high on Coples. As long as everything is okay as far as admissions goes, expect the staff to make a huge push for Coples. He or Keith Wells could very easily end up in this class.

    Read Buckskins' post on 7/4...

    Quinton wants to take official visits to Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, Florida State, and Tennessee. In the mean time, he will take unofficial visits to some local schools such as Clemson, North Carolina, and North Carolina State.

    An article on several East Coast prospects.... According to Mike Farrell, North Carolina is the team to beat for Coples, with Tennessee being the dark horse candidate.

    Quinton says Clemson is recruiting him the hardest and he hopes to narrow his list soon. He is also considering Florida State, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, NC State, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.

    He is our target. This looks like it will develope late.

    Maybe old news but
    He may be our surprise late in the process. I hope the Brew Crew is in contact.

    I don't know if it's possible to do this by just eyeballing a kid but how much weight do you think he can put on while maintaining his speed and quickness?

    He looks like a 260-270 type of player down the road...

    People were ready to write off Worthington because they thought he was too tall to play DL. By all account he had one of the best spring/summers and is ready to be a force in the rotation this year. Coples is already 235 at 6-foot-7 and looks fairly skinny, which makes me think he could at least carry another 15-20 lbs. if not more.

    I love the tall DL, especially at DE. As wad said, he could easily get in the 270 range with that frame and if he maintains athleticism, he could stay at DE, which is where I would like to see him. DT is more about leverage so it makes it a bit tougher for a taller guy but I see Coples at DE anyways, using his long arms to get past tackles and to the QB.
