He decided on W. Virginia, but I've heard he's now going the prep route. I don't know which one he's doing for sure.

i'm pretty sure he's goin to prep school. you're right he did commit to West Virginia but withdrew that commitment. i heard his mentor is deion sanders and he persuaded him not to go to WVU after he committed because he wanted him to go to prep school, then Florida State or sumthin...

He's from my home town so I know most of the scoop on him

He's an amazing talent, but he's a straight up prick, and not much of a student, not much of brain at all really.

He didn't have high enough SAT/ACT scores to get into West Virginia so he has to go the prep school route for a year before he can commit officially, It's doubtful he even goes to WV at this point.

I don't know if I'd say that. Rivals has him listed at 5'9" 178. That sounds more like Garrett Wolfe to me. However, he may be Reggie V2.4 in college, but at that size he probably wouldn't be much of a pro prospect.

I can see him being a Warrick Dunn but even better.

Rookie Season for him that i see - 1400 RushYDS, 4.6 YPC, 12 TDs

if he puts on pounds, 5'9'' is plenty of size for a running back. Most running backs are under 6 feet. and im sure he will be able to put on 20 or 30 pounds by the time he goes to the NFL...hes not even in college yet.

Clearly that's true, but when he does put on weight will he still be as fast and shifty as he is? I'm not so sure.

Me neither, he also seems like somebody with bad work ethic.
How many LBS do Westbrook and Jones-Drew weigh?

ironman4579
03-12-2007, 02:37 PM
Jones-Drew-5'7" 212 lbs

Westbrook-5'8" 207 lbs

according to their player pages on NFL.com.

And Drew was also listed by Rivals as 5-8, 190 and running a 4.4 40 as an incoming freshman, and 205 by his junior year. I can't find Westbrooks measurables for his freshman year, but I have little doubt that he weighed in at more than 178. Put it this way. Devine would have to put on 12 pounds of weight just to equal Jones Drew as a freshman, let alone the 34 pounds he'd have to put on to equal Jones-Drew now, and I'm sorry, I don't see a kid putting on 34 pounds and maintaining the same speed.

yeah he needs some size but he's strong as a ox, he could bench 300+ as a freshman.

He only has 2 kids.

Also, to all you saying this kid is a "thug" and will never make it to the NFL. He has never been arrested and it's been said many times that he doesn't smoke or drink, and he takes care of both his chlidren. Last time I checked having trouble at school doesn't make you a "thug" or a bad person. I don't think it's a huge deal that he took Deion's car and drove to the airport. How would you feel if you moved 5 states over to live with some star you barely know? He got homesick so he took the car to the airport and flew home. This kid has had an extremely tough life losing both parents, his best friend, and growing up in a bad neighborhood. He should be applauded for staying out of trouble and making it to where he has today especially with the kind of fame he's had since he was a freshman.

I think the reason he isn't doing everything for football isn't b/c he is too lazy/doesn't care, I think it it b/c he has more important things in his life [kids, family] than football.

Like HookEm said...give the kid a break.

03-16-2007, 08:51 PM
isnt he 19 right now...so the time he is a freshman he is going to be 20 ??? ouch

the kid has alot of potential BUT his size hurts him from playing in pro style systems
i expect him to sign with WVU with the intention of starting as a true frosh and playing in rich rodriguez spread offense

Couldn't agree more, it seems like people want to just assume he's a thug because he has 2 kids but a lot of people don't know much more about him other then he has 2kids, took Deions car and has gold teeth.

My point was that there are great white athletes.

and my point was you completely missed the point of my first post that had absolutely nothing to do with you. i believe it was directed towards big mike and his obsession with white athletes and their physical shortcomings compared to african american athletes. it was an older thing that i'd been ribbing him for. people have preconceived notions about white guys athleticism and black guys intelligence, when in fact neither is true and both are blatant racism. but i would(and did) catch more flak for posting about a black mans intelligence than a black man would posting about a white mans athletic ability or lack thereof.

i didn't mean for this to become a dissertation but i just wanted to explain why i said what i said and that there was a point behind it.

Nothing really thuggish about Noel except for the gold teeth that he's chucked and the dreds he's since cut off. He's had NO home to speak of for the majority of his life. This isn't a kid who rejected parental guidance, he didn't have any that was offered.

He's survived and hung in there. He's going to get to Hargrave and mature more and hopefully he'll find a place where he is comfortable and where he can get his education.

Having had the opportunity to meet Noel last summer and keep a bit of a correspondence with him over the last 10 months, I have tremendous respect for him. He's not perfect and he's not a saint, but he tries to do the right things and his heart is in the right place. For a 17-18 year old kid that has had to learn through trial and error, I respect the fact that he's survived and has put himself in a position to get a college education despite his mistakes.

Justin Gwaltney was like that. Led Long Island in rushing but didn't play a down of college ball because of his brains. And for the record, he was supposed to be better then Slaton. That panned out well...you can visit him at NCC (Nassau Community College).

my cousin was at the same school as him but shes a nerd so she didnt know much about him :P

Gwaltney at Nassau Community College that's funny. I guess I'm still bitter he rejected the Buckeyes. I still think Devine is a premier talent. At 5'8 or so there are certainly smaller backs who have succeeded. With a college training regiment and some actual discipline in his life (hopefully) he'll be able to put on some good weight while maintaining his explosiveness. I just hope he can turn it around.
