    Mike Matya is reporting the same! Great to hear, because as of this morning there was a complete different story following this kid. Great to have him!

    Awesome, the kid looks like a beast. Might be tough for him to see the field this year but I'm looking forward to watching him play for the next couple years

    In my opinion he is college ready right now....alot will depend how soon he gets here and if they want him to get settled in on his academics...

    He is that good in my opinion....

    I agree that he looks ready physically, but I think he would probably benefit from a redshirt year. Assuming Anderson is slotted to play a lot this year, I'd think at least one of the freshmen will redshirt. Unless Afalava is completely dominant, I'd like him to be the one to redshirt as I think he has the most upside.

    With our LB situation he could play as a true Frosh....

    He already has the size and weight to play...no need to RS him....for that anyway....

    Afalava is that good.....he and Rose could both see time this year...

    With Love and Bandaras coming in this year we are building some real depth at LB....

    I'm for RS if it make's sense...in this case in my opinion it doesn't....

    However, when he arrives etc. could dictate what he does...

    Depth at LB is one of my top concerns for next season. I actually think we will be better at the top of the depth chart than some might believe, however, we cannot have injuries at this position. Afalava and Rose could really play a huge hole next year giving us some depth, working kickoff coverage, and prepping for a run at starting jobs in 2013. By the end of 2012, one of these two guys (add RS Frosh Santos into the mix as well) could be fairly well entrenched for years to come.

    I hope that's the case and in 5 years we're arguing over whether he could have been a 3X vs 2X all american
