Always heard he was a 2*. Oh well ha 

He may have been.  I'm not sure stars were even much of a thing in the early '80's.  I was just making a joke since he was a 3 Sport Star. 😁

Bo Jackson was a 2 star 

Don't know where you get that.  They didn't use star ratings at that time, but if they had Bo would have definitely been a 5 Star.  He was the most heralded Auburn signee that I can ever recall.  Vincent "Bo" Jackson.  Grew up a UAT fan but UAT told him he may not start until his Jr year whereas Pat Dye told him he'd have an opportunity to compete for a starting role as a Freshman and the rest is history.  When he picked Auburn people were stunned he hadn't chosen the evil empire.

My comment is a blending of the quote you saw and premium content that I can't quote.  It's a post by a paid analyst on a message board that says his status (as someone with smaller offers) "will change" - not "may", but "will"..  You'll find it.  That's why I said this is going to be fun.  

If it's an Auburn analyst I haven't seen it. I have all their post pages bookmarked & check them daily. FTR @im4au there's no rule saying you can't post a premium link for others to check out so if you will post that link for me I'd appreciate it.

Someone mentioned H back ...maybe fullback ?

HBs are FBs in Gus's offense.

Back in the day, coaches used to turn FBs into LBs....maybe a reverse of tha

In 2012 or 2013 we took Prosh from Illinois who was a LB turned HB FWIW.

Just for reference, the deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NFL Draft is January 14th, which is next Monday. We’ll hear about Brown, Davidson, and Tega very soon. 

15th FTR unless they changed it from previous years.

DB obviously thinks his bro is a baller but don’t kid yourself if you think we would’ve offered him regardless of his relationship with DB.

He was already an All American FB.

@Mikey & @augolf1716 will have to jog my memory here but as great as Bo was I don't think he was hyped up out of high school like his talent should have been & 5* rated guys are. I got the impression from their stories Bo was under valued coming out of high school.

The "hot" signee that year was Alan Evans, RB from Enterprise, who as we all know, went on to oblivion until he was able to peddle his son to the dark side.

Evans was all state 4A, http://www.ahsfhs.org/allstate/allstateteam21sql.asp?year=1981&class=4A&source=BN 

And Bo was all state 3A .http://www.ahsfhs.org/allstate/allstateteam21sql.asp?year=1981&class=3A&source=BN

However, Evans was the Parade All-american. https://www.newspapers.com/clip/7511733/1981_parade_all_america_high_school/

I was in school at the time, we quickly figured out who the star was...

More than 1 I believe but the one that sticks out is Doc's remaining spots thread. Regardless I have posted everything in here that I posted in there also.

We don’t touch this guy if Brown isn’t here. But I agree DB is coming back anyway.

I'm neither of those guys, but if memory is correct Bo played both ways at McAdory. I think that kept him from having the really gaudy numbers at RB that one would expect  a player of his ability to have. He also was a track and field star and I believe he played damn near every sport the HS offered. Recruiting was a totally different beast in those days, I can remember seeing articles in The Birmingham News about a week before signing day about who was going where. There was nowhere near the coverage one can find currently. For better or for worse.

Gwinnett has one of the largest, if not the largest school system in Georgia.

Archer - Colby Wooden (AJC state defensive player of the year)

Grayson - Owen Pappoe

Grayson - Andrew Booth

Collins Hill - Tomari Fox

Lanier - Phillip Webb

Among others....

I don't know & am not going to to make an assumption one way or the other til AU reporters tell us if that's why the offer was made or not. As of now it's plausible KB was offered on his own merit based on need on at least 1 if not 2 positions.

I know smarty pants. I didn't say nor imply AU was the team that converted him to FB. He was a LB in high school & Illinois converted him to FB.

Maybe but I'm going to wait for a source covering the program or connected to the program to tell me that. Is this is your way of saying that's the word from your sources?

Sure. It was just irrelevant. Many have played LB/FB, LB/OL in HS.

He played both ways in HS. Don’t think he was ever recruited as a LB.

Interesting. I only read about him playing LB in high school. Bever read anything about him playing offense but you're right. I just scooped this from his Illinois Bio...
