    Kind of interesting to me to see if Knighton and Robinson both sign up. Knighton is absolutely a take in my eyes, but getting two backs of that caliber both on board in the same class is a tall task. Not undoable, but difficult. Cautiously optimistic, but let's see how this plays out if/when Robinson hops on board.

    Greene CB for Ohio State. Think this one is close to done.

    Just watched his highlights and wow is he sudden... he was surprisingly more physical than I anticipated. Reminds me a bit of Reggie Bush in having the ability to start and stop.

    If we land this dude and Robinson it's not close this is the greatest collection of offensive talent I've ever seen.

    Finally got around to watching his entire junior film (didn't think this was a realistic option until lately) and he has another gear to be sure. But you are right, he definitely has some physicality to his style that Coach Mic could really bring out in droves once he adds some muscle. Loving the momentum to the good guys for sure, just hope that Knighton would not drive away Robinson if that BOOM comes earlier. My greedy mind wants both but just know it can be tough to keep both by the time the ink drives, although its not unheard of.

    Regardless of how the pieces fall though, definitely would love to have Knighton in this class.

    Big fan of Knighton. This kid is just electric to me...like a Curtis Samuel. He has the speed, the lateral movement, the abundance of open field moves, the ability to run nasty when he wants to, the vision and patience, etc.

    Bijan for some reason reminds me of a more slender Beanie Wells with his running style. These two could not complement each other any better.

    Love the Dalvin Cook comparison. I was watching his film and the whole time kept telling myself to "stop it, don't say it!" because I kept thinking Alvin Kamara. Thank you for giving me someone to lower my expectations a bit.

    By the way, 247 compares Bijan to David Johnson. So David Johnson and Dalvin Cook in one class!? Yeah, I'll take that!

    Love how he gets up field in a hurry. North and South type of runner with some good jets to boot.
