I'm hearing that too.. 

I read on 247 where posters were saying EJ's Marcus Tillman commitment article seemed like a rewrite of a Shepherd commitment piece. Apparently he didn't change all the Shepherd references over to Tillman before he posted.

Oh wow. The Tillman commitment caught me way off guard. I think it caught everyone off guard

Not people who are into fencing (the sport, not the work).  They are often "On-guard."

I imagine Orlando was already a little wigged out by depth issues and then with Boyd falling off he was like get me some bodies!

Not to short change the kid. Could be a steal.

You could be right. Dealing with the lack of depth in LBs and the situation with Boyd probably was the scenario with this committment

The staff knows they need depth, but they aren’t just going to take bodies.

To me he looks like the perfect kind of recruit to fill in / out a class, strong, quick, athletic and likely a great program fit with blow up potential, and from Florida with all those implications. Just the timing makes me wonder if our depth issues played a part. Depth there is my main concern anyway. I guess Roach is the wild card. If he's playing tons of reps at LB maybe it's not such a worry.

Put a Texas pick in for Tyler Owens. Feel like this is another case of making too much sense all things considered.

This must be the plan B to Cine and that's all good.  Kid looks like he can ball.

Just put my pick in for Tufono to Texas. Once thought this was a pipe dream, but there is optimism that Texas will be the pick. 

Who comes to mind when you see his film? Who does he compare to?

not sure but that film is really damn good. if he is 6-3 225# thats impressive. he will hold 240# very very easily. i want him to keep the movement and flexibility. he clearly is a MLB in our system and a good run stuffer, great at sniffing out screens, he even back peddles well into zones but does tend to get lost a bit when he gets back in space. that can be improved with time. reports are he is very disciplined and a student of the game so both will be huge. He can blitz pretty well. i wasn't sure of the Hawaii HS football quality but someone on here (sorry forgot who) posted  their top level is pretty decent low Texas 5A. He would be able to interchange a bit with Floyd so it would be hard to tell who is blitzing and who is covering. He is polynesian so you know he has nice ties and is innately stronger than the average person his size, racist but true. :P

What position is Mookie?  

He goes in the offensive weapon category with how he is used currently and will he used at the next level. Think Ramonce Taylor or Percy Harvin. He will line up all over and be used anywhere from running back, slot receiver and even dabble as a return specialist.
