Looks to me like another Stephen Plein/Corey White type: a 'TE' commit who will end up as an offensive tackle in a 2-3 years. Staff seems to like those types and I do too.
We were recruiting him as a TE. I know BC wanted him as a TE and I think UVA did as well. I can't think of any school I've heard recruiting him as a OT. All that OT talk that I've seen was from his HS coach that spewed it to Canesport after the commitment. I haven't see any college that wants him as anything other then a TE or DE.
Sucks because I think this means we know Alex Smith is headed elsewhere and I know we felt really good about him for awhile there.
Mark Whipple is like having an extremely smoking hot girlfriend. You're happy about dating a 9.5, but she's got millionaires and famous athletes chasing her and you just feel like you know she is going to leave you and you're $60,000 a year salary/Nissan driving self at any time and you can't enjoy it as much because all you do is worry about her leaving you.
Osirus I was about to mention the same thing, you have to think the way this offense is executing, and pretty much how well the team has started off in general, that this has gotta help us down the line for recruiting. Now that the U is actually winning I expect to start churning out 1st round picks year after year like the past.
