    I like what I have heard about this kid. An Iso FB is attitude, but a pro set FB is skill - so it depends what you are looking for. IMO the best Iso FBs are FBs in HS (Jamar being a great example). Dionte Johnson will be a great FB because he wants to play FB - and played it in HS. White sounds like he has made the mental adjustment and he certainly has the ability.

    What does an offensive set have to do with running the Iso? Pro set refers to a flanker, split end, tight end, with two RBs either in I formation (or variation of offset) or split backs. The Iso refers simply to an Isolation block where the FB meets the LB in the hole.

    I just can't see him as a B10 safety...his best chance is to bulk up and either be a FB or an OLB...

    Not NavyBuck, but I think he just means a FB who spends most of his time running an ISO block on the ILB out of the I vs. a FB lined up in a split set who might be called on to block in space on a toss or sweep or flare out an catch a pass. Like a Jamar Martin vs. a Matt Keller.

    But you are right...there really isn't much of a difference between the type of FB you would want in either formation. Same goes for the Strong or Weak (better known as Offset I)...

    I figured that much...just a poor use of terminology I guess. You know we coaches are picky:roll2:

    You "coaches" must be jerks as well. You admit knowing what I meant, but couldn't resist trying to show your "knowledge" by belittling my post instead of amplifying on it? I formation iso fullbacks rarely carry the ball or catch passes. Pro set fullbacks, while certainly called on to block, are much more involved in other aspects of the offense, particularly the passing game as a receiver. Presumably you were aware of that "coach."

    Maybe if you would clarify your terminology, you would not have people questioning your post. I've seen you question quite a few posters, including me, so don't think you are above being questioned when you are not clear in your intentions. Learn some terminology and then come talk to me. Again, an ISO is a refernce to an isolation play and block. Pro set is a formation. Don't blame me for your ignorance.

    Then you decide to start name calling? Not sure who is being a jerk here, but I am sure of who is quite juvenile.
