I'm really shocked this hasn't hit the board yet. I'm trying to reach out to him, so hopefully, I'll have an interview up with him shortly.

We had a player from Euless several years back. Who was that?

At just under 6' tall and 258 lbs he looks like a load to move from the line of scrimmage. I trust he has wheels to move that bulk around the field.

I haven't heard from Elelyon yet. We also had one of the top 5 kickers in the country at the game on an unofficial visit. His name is RJ Lopez and I have been told that we are his favorite right now. He is training with none other than Brad Bohn.

I'm pretty sure Salanoa went there as well which may be what he was thinking?

Brad Bohn has helped us get a commit or two. He seems to bleed Aggie Blue.

The kid is stout. I'll bet he hits hard. Knock 20 lbs off him and he'll be a helluva backer if he has speed. I seem to recall a 'backer at Miami (Dolphins) a few years back who was 5'11' and was All Pro many, many times. BWags is all of 6'. Just sayin.

I'd rather put 25 lbs on him and let him play DT. Walter Feifia was just shy of 6' and was an amazing NG.

I'm still working on an interview with Poukesi but I just wanted to add that he has just become our highest-rated recruit.

Right. And you don’t recruit like that if “your heart’s not in it” as some have suggested recently.

I like the kids motor, doesn't quit on plays. Got knocked down on one play, got up and still made the tackle. Looks like he sheds blocks well, multiple times he waited for the runner to come to him and tosses the guy to the side to make the stop. Maintains his gap assignment, lots of plays came to him after a cut back when he was where he was supposed to be. Once he makes the decision to go, looks like he has a quick burst. Hopefully all that continues and he kills it as an Aggie!

We are ranked number 121 on 247 team rankings, which is 2 spots ahead of Montana State. Not quite sure why everyone keeps saying how good we are doing at recruiting. There are a ton of G5 teams ahead of us. Am I missing something, like are we low because we only have 7 commits and we are going to jump up a ton?!

The rankings are determined on a total points basis. Total points are calculated by how many recruits you have, their ratings, and how many other players of that position you have on roster/are also committed.

USU is going to suffer in the RANKINGS because of class size.

USU is going to have its best year ever with RATINGS.

Small class, terrific players.
