Thread: Cravens: Do we have a shot with this kid?

    Cravens: Do we have a shot with this kid?

    I just watched highlights of him, HOLY CRAP, what an amazing football player. It seems like he could play any position in the back 7 if he wanted to. Seems like he would fit our system EXCEEDINGLY well, especially if he were in a roll similar to what Eric Hagg used to do.

    Do we have a real shot with him? It seems like there is a lot of super high profile interest in him.

    That was for 2010 when he was a sophomore. Any video of him as a junior?

    He'll be a Trojan in the end.

    The staff needs to find a way to get him on campus one way or another. I figure if you get any kid on our campus for a game, then we have a shot with them. The kid is a game changing talent in that defense, and he's particularly suited for our defense in my mind.

    He will have success in any defense he plays in....my friend at USC said Sanders is drooling over this kid....

    As long as he wants to play with Mathis we have a shot, as Mathis loves us right now. But for some reason I don't believe it will be enough of a pull in the end.....get him in for a game day and you never know what could happen. Our 3 seniors at safety could intrigue him....

    His desire to play with Mathis is a buddy buddy wish but not strong enough to pull him away from the West. Him being on campus and experiencing the culture of our program first hand will do wonders and I believe that's the only chance we would get to sway him in our direction.

    He has talked about visiting this fall....I suspect, should he commit to USC, that it will be 50-50 if he even comes....he is a S. California kid and getting him out of their was never going to be easy and frankly I don't think our chances are slim to get a commit even if he visits....USC seems to be his 'dream' school....

    Cravens has told a few other recruits that he has already made his decision.

    It's time for us to give up the dream here and just forget about him.

    If recruiting has taught us nothing else, it should be that its not over until its over. And its not over until someone signs on the dotted line.
    A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.

    Maybe he's one of the silent commits....
