Daniel's Crystal Ball Picks

Recommended Posts

From TFB about JUCO OL Mikey Grandy

 

Really really nice player. Good thickness, nice length. Nasty. Good hands. He finds work and plays to the whistle. Good offer. He’s a plug and play. He’s better than Kerstetter already. He’s a tackle but think he’s powerful enough to be a guard. Reminds me a lot of Connor Lanfear for Texas A&M.

As far as I'm concerned, Tom can't offer too many OL. I'm sick of the OL drought we've had for all these years.

AMEN With by my count only nine OL it a far cry from three deep at each position.

Bookie to UCLA Daniel?  OU thought this guy was one of the commits from a few weeks back.  Could you see Pledger going with him since him and Bookie are buddies and he seems like the kind of RB Chip likes.

Also, time to worry with Grandy with the UCLA offer?  Glad we get the OV right before he decides.

Definitely a bit worried about UCLA entering the mix for Grandy.

Daniel changed his Grandy pick to UCLA.  Looks like we're gonna' strike out of the 1st two JUCO OL offers.  Lets hope we get J. Johnson and offer Elbert.

Being a Cali kid I feel like UCLA holds the edge. Texas has to hope he doesn’t pop on his visit this weekend and they get a swing.

Just put one in for Katy DT Moro Ojomo to Texas. I think once his season wraps up and the staff gets him on campus that this one will get done.

He looks a head taller than anyone else on the Katy defense, maybe a candidate for the 4i position?  If he just turned 16 back in August he may not be done growing.

Looks like Grandy is going to make his OV this weekend, think we may move back in front on this one Daniel?

How many DL are they going to take? One more to add with Ojomo and Coburn?

First hurdle was getting him to follow thru with the visit to Austin. We will know more after he visits.

I've seen Ojomo play a few times this year and he was certainly impressive against Northshore a few days ago (as was the entire Katy defense).  Would love to see him on campus.  In addition to his physical attributes, he's going to have the mental part down too since Katy plays such disciplined defense.

He's listed at 6'3 on his profile page would you say that's legit or maybe even short?  Kid looks like a giant on hudl compared to most around him.

Daniel, 2019 related but I noticed an aggy mod had a pick for Tyler Johnson to Texas and that Javonne Shepherd has a pick or 2 to Texas.  That would be a great get for some OT's, you like where we stand early on with these 2?

I got a bad feeling Kenyon Green either sticks with LSU or flips to aggy.  Hope I'm wrong.

Ojomo has tremendous "get off" and is a legitimate 6'3.  The thing that is tough with him as he dominates as a DT at about 50-60 lbs less than Spring Westfield DT Keondre Coburn (UT commit);  that can be tricky b/c he would be engulfed at the next level at his current weight unless UT wants to kick him outside.  Always a roll of the dice when assuming a DT can put on weight and keep his explosiveness at the next level.

    • And then there was one . . .  And then there was one. One Texas commit remains in the hunt for a state championship crown – Cuero’s Jordan Whittington. QB commit for 2020 Hudson Card and his Lake Travis team were eliminated by Galena Park North Shore. In other state final games of interest . . . .  Texas 2020 prospect Landon Jackson (DE, Pleasant Grove) will be in action when the defending state champs take on #5 Cuero and Jordan Whittington. Game time Friday is 11 am. Class 3A Div 2 #1 Newton had a mild scare last week with East Bernard coming within 7 points of Newton. This week, the pride of the Panhandle, #4 Canadian is the only thing left standing between the Eagles and a state title. Expect Canadian to give Newton a good game. Grandview vs Malakoff may be the most underrated state final this week. They face off Thursday night at 7 p.m. #3 Liberty Hill takes on #4 La Vega, a match up that has been anticipated for weeks. Could be one of the most exciting class 4A finals ever. Class 5A #1 Aledo has mowed down competition all season. This week, however, Fort Bend Marshall might present a more evenly matched game.  History and tradition meet up against the modern and new when Highland Park takes on #6 Shadow Creek, a school that only recently began varsity football. CAN #4 Longview break the curse? No state title in Longview since 1937. They’ll have to make it through an upstart West Brook squad to get it done. Next to Lufkin and Rockwall, this will be Longview’s toughest test to date. In what may be a game for the ages, #5 Duncanville will take on #2 Galena Park North Shore in the Saturday night cap at AT&T. There will be so much D1 talent on the field at the same time, it will be a better game than many of the bowl games set to be played. SHA’s PICKS GP North Shore over Duncanville

    • Lol Hamm and that looney mawmaw lady.
    • Ags calling their shot.  Sheppard flip
    • Typically, this is the time when they'd get some meaningful playing time (in the bowl game). So I hope they can recover fast enough to play in the Sugar. That said, even if they do, they will not have practiced through the whole period so there would be some rust to kick off.
