He is listed on the roster on cyclones.com and in the Student directory. Some guys on cylonereport.com seemed exicited about him but this was the first i have heard of him. Anybody have some info on him?
Partially from bits I have read about him and partially my own guesses...he was forced to go to a juco out of hs but then was able to get everything in order in a year so his recruitment took a lot of places by surprise, so a combination of a little good fortune and a good job by the staff. I have read he had a good season in juco and is someone that is exciting to add with a big upside (no pun intended).
I was at a golf out that GC talked at. GC said most schools were thinking he was two years at the JC.We had a good relationship with the JC coach and grabed him out early. Very good get.
During the signing day press conference in February 2007 -- Gene's first class -- I recall that Gene said the same thing about Alex Alvarez . . . most everyone else thought he was going to be a two-year JUCO guy. We got him after one (and redshirted him last fall).
Heartening to see that our guys are on top of it, that they seem to go an extra mile to do the job.
