Gabe Rivera says hi.
So did I.
I think Chambers will try to move him to TE. What's not to love 5 '10 295 makes sense to me.

So Gabe really wasn't 6'2" as listed.
He was shorter after the car accident.
Nope. More like 6'1", at best. And Vince Wilfork is not 6'2" either.

its been almost 30 years so the statute of limitations has run its course. great player though.
Billings isn't much taller
Exactly. This kid is almost a carbon copy physically coming out of his sophomore year.
so he isn't really the 6'2" they have him listed at either.
Football heights are generally as accurate as asking a teenage boy how many women he slept with
However he had a confirmed measurement of 5' 10" at the rivals camp 10 days ago. Those are usually spot on,
Now, does this one shave?

"Don't know. Never had one"
-- D. Royal-Mack Brown how to coach a team after a losing season
This is a kid who wants to be at Texas, is playing a position of need, and is a good prospect. Big kid, you can't teach that. More likely than not over the next 2-3 years he grows at least 2-3 inches which would make him 6'0" or 6'1". I grew 5 inches from freshman year of high school to freshman year of college. These are the years when kids grow. I don't have a problem with this it keeps the upward trend in momentum building going into the biggest recruiting weekend of the year. I actually love this personally.
Is this not a kid we could have gotten in another year or two? If we ran things the Saban way I'd feel fine about it because I'd know if this kid busts out we'd just give his ship to someone better.
I don't feel good about this with Mack doing it. If this kid Bible's on us Mack will still take him. This super early offering isn't Mack's game and it might bite our asses.
What a dufus! Clap clap!!!
Leverage, strength and quickness, height be damned.
This board wants Claude Mathis on the Texas coaching staff...
Claude Mathis has produced several players for Texas in recent years...
Claude Mathis has high praise for Bryce English & recommended him for an offer...
Some on this board don't understand this offer...
Someone mentioned this earlierm but almost all the guys we've gotten from desoto have sucked or transferred.
Yea, those guys have been huge contributors.
