2017 RB Recruiting

93 posts in this topic





The last one? Mason.

But he wasnt a very celebrated RB coming in...although a 4*. I think Dyer was probably the "biggest" RB recruit landed recently. Thoughts?

Jovon was either a four or five star by every service out there. He could have a great year.

Yeah, but I really don't care about stars or whatever. But yeah dyer was awesome. Especially in 2011. He really carried that team and nobody respected our pass game then

Who would you say was the last "explosive big play hb" that played for us was?

Big play every time they touched the ball? Corey Grant in 2013 and OMac in 2009-2011, 2012 was a wasted year for him. I was hoping Roc Thomas would follow suit this year, oh well.

I suspect the last explosive big play RB to play for us is Jovon Robinson.

Matthews runs a little high for my taste. He's a tall guy with a long stride. He looked really good catching the ball in space and making people miss. Looks like another very good running back in the stable of options. I could see a lot of diversity in the way we use our RBs if he's sharing the backfield with Kerryon.

I hope and expect AU to have many explosive big play RBs after Jovon. I am certain you do too.

If "explosive" is your desire, then this Matthews guy, who averaged 9 yards per carry, should be making you celebrate!

Cordarrian Richardson commits to Clemson (3/6/16)

Cord Richardson has decommitted from Clemson recently. Does anyone have any new information on him? I'm interested to hear if we are still recruiting him since A. Williams has supposed grade problems

As things stand now AU is done at RB barring Barrett or Matthews flipping. If Alaric does not qualify the staff does not plan to replace him in this class with another RB.

Mike Blakely was pretty well "high profile".  I think had he been able to keep it together between the ears,. He could have been a very good RB at AU.

Does Matthews remind anyone else of Brad Lester??? 

And Barrett is a Beast. 

I don't think A Williams plays RB if he makes it in.

Barrett is showing interest in Clemson, so I believe it'd be wise to have Horton knock on Richardson's door after the dead period is over.

Well, we found out Dyer was up for the games,  just not the way we imagined.

Jovon was a 5*, wasn't Roc also? 

Yep, Roc was a 5*. Some of the best high school film I've seen.

Kerryon was also a big running back addition for us as well. No way Dyer was the biggest RB that we landed recently.
