    As a member of the 19th-century American bourgeoisie, I would love to see Cornelius Elder and Vernon Hargreaves III in this class. It would make our team more "sporting."

    Long strider. Gets to open grass and picks up yards in a hurry. With Urban seeming disappointed with the lack of talent at the skill positions, I think we'll start seeing a lot of offers like this.

    I really want this kid in this class. His highlights are unreal.

    Wow... Cornelius would be a PERFECT fit for this offense in the Harvin/Rainey/Ginn playmaker role. Or he could be great as a RB. Or as a CB/S. Just get him on campus and figure out where he would shine best on this team.

    Hope Urban and staff can put the full-court press on this guy. Also hope he's not too attached to his home state school Tennessee.

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    The highlight tape is 4 minutes and 40 seconds long, he didn't get tackled until 4:15. And that was a defensive play. :slappy:

    I wonder why he isn't ranked higher and why he doesn't have a more impressive offer sheet. His highlight tape sure looks good to my untrained eye. Is he a TN lock?

    I think you guys are getting a bit caught up in his speed. This kid has D1 speed no about that.
    Other than speed what you want to see is his toughness and vision. In the highlight reel what i seen was his O-line opening up holes big enough to drive a mack truck through. He was never tackled due in part to the great blocking by his O-line. I seen him break a couple of arm tackles which is good but to be a great D1 level prospect he has to be tough enough to break full on body contact. This kid is small, I'm not sure if he would be tough enough to break stronger tackles by bigger guys on our playing field.

    I cant tell you how many times I seen Chris Rainey take a full on hit, bounce back and use his 4.3 speed to gain another 20 yards. That kid was tough.

    I specifically said he was fast...Thats Is part of the reason he only had to break arm tackles, by the time guys got near him he was past them. I was only making the point that it takes much more than speed to break tackles on the college level. Gotta be tougher than the guys trying to bring you down.

    No what you seemed to do was question his toughness. I'm thinking that someone on our coaching staff has seen him on film between the highlights and he was deserving of an offer. Just because he isn't built like Eddie doesn't mean he's not tough...and I don't think this kid got an offer because we are looking for him to pound it up the middle either.
