    Measurables look good. Dominates when singled up(usually when the team plays a 4-3). Struggles to penetrate against the double teams but holds ground well and frees up his teammates(usually when the team plays a 3-4). Good motor and show a burst when the ball is snapped and even some closing speed to the outside for his size.

    It's obvious he's got a ton of talent but is he smart? Any DT with his talent that chooses any school over Nebraska (with Bo and Carl's coaching talent ) would have to have their judgement/ intelligence questioned.

    A bench max of 450+ to start your Senior year of high school is unreal...

    Mickey Johnson wont be here now for the Oct. 29th game. Sounds like he is going to wait and take any trips until after the year.

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.
