Here's a guy that we should take a chance on if he's interested...he's in Coach Elliotts stomping grounds...California!!!!
Kyrie Wilson - OLB, once committed to Oregon, they retracted their offer today as their class is over filled. Now if a more talented athlete is to accept an offer, then less qualified players will be dropped. He's 6'-2" 211 lbs and runs the 40 in 4.57 (real timed at a Nike Camp). Could be a great addition to an already very good position on our roster. We can never stop getting athletes to play Defense...
Good post. People look at these times and think kids need t0 be in the 4.4s. Not that many players run 4.4s in the combine, but how many have that stat listed out of HS? I would take a guy with a recorded 4.57 at safety. There are tons of examples every year of players that looked uncatchable in college running bad times(Manninghams 4.61). And he still looks pretty fast in the pros. If the kid can play, get him.
We probably aren't recruiting him anyways. My guess is Colorado may jump in on this guy, since he is in Pac 10 territory and they need to pick up some late guys.
