We need him a bad way! I sure hope he signs with us!!
Height is nothing but a number, he can out block any 6'5" on the UT roster right now. I hear that all the time with my son, "if he was 2" taller" he could play anywhere.... I say if he was 2" taller we would still be watching the same video as we are now.
Height can definitely be an advantage, but it just seems to me that any lineman with a lower center of gravity will have an advantage just simply because of leverage. If you re-watch Billings' film it's pretty apparent. His build looks to be perfect for getting up under an opposing lineman and just jacking them up! Big, strong, low center of gravity. BEAST!
But to hold back stars on a shorter kid that produces results is a joke.
