    Just read an article on this kid on Rivals. Apparently we have already offered and his coach had great things to say about us, including the fact we're his early leader. Supposedly has sub 4.4 speed. I found an article but you have to register to view. Conley was quoted as saying he's the best back they have seen in years.

    Here is an article about him from earlier in the year.

    Edit: Thanks for adding the article, 86.

    Nutty- he was First team RB (along with Bobby Washington) in Florida's 6A- the biggest school division in Florida

    Gartrell Shavers was 2nd team

    Plus Larry Bluestein (Insiders Florida guru) has him rated no. 37 in his early '05 rankings

    Thanks for the info BN

    Here is the article you wanted

    Looks like we have another sub 6ft and 200lb back to consider

    not too bad for a junior. His coach seems to think he'd be hard pressed not to sign with OSU if he comes up to see a game.

    It's a shame this guy couldn't have been here in 03. Then we could have had a combination of our last two starting halfbacks replace them.

    Looks like Wells was born in Ohio and has family here. Things look pretty positive with him :oh: :io:

    I have to chuckle every time a see I picture of Jamario. Is THAT what 17 year old High School Juniors look like these days? For God's sake it looks like he's wearing shoulder pads next to TGJr. The really scary thing, is that Freddie Lenix is a bit bigger and even meaner looking. Freddie has got to be a Top Priority, would love to get a verbal from him before the season starts. The Glenville to Columbus pipeline is going to be huge, they're totally loaded with outstanding underclassmen, and couldn't have a finer man molding their talents than TGSr.

    If we get him, then ringer and sutton will have to look elsewhere for a scholarship

    i originally disagreed with u tress but now i think that we can get wells and king and then chris wells next year and we'll be loader for a long time, but i think if we strikeout on wells or king we offer ringer or sutton and if we miss on both we offer sutton and ringer or another oos back

    Lets just hope the kid doen't plan on waiting until signing day!!! If we get him some really good Ohio kids will need to go elsewhere (esp. if we get Williams from this year... next year)...

    Keep in mind that Wells might outgrow the RB position by the time he graduates high school.

    Edit: USC has now offered Wells. Let the games begin :sick1:

    It looks like Petey Carroll has offered Mo. Key quote from Rivals article from Mo's coach

    This could get interesting - Pete's rap is that USC passes the ball. What is he going to do, chuck the passing attack and break out student body left and right? Mr. Wells needs to ask why a RB would go to a passing attack school.

    I was reading a Rivals article today where Wells said his mother would like him to go to Ohio State. Anyone else think Maurice should listen to his mom? :wink:
