I remember when GJ Kinne moved from Canton to Gilmer. I believe it had something to do with family reasons. But I do know that UIL was swarming all over that situation like glue. 

His dad was a coach, did he transfer with him?  I remember his dad was shot in the chest by a former player I believe, but I don’t remember if that was at that time or after GJ was done playing HS ball?

I’m not sure. I’m with you on Eaton though. He’s all projection right now and needs a lot of time in the incubator. 

Is Eaton or Caldwell from last year’s class the better prospect?

Another kids dad shot Coach Kinne (GJs dad) over his son not playing enough. GJ still played at Gilmer His senior year. His mother had lived there already so that’s how he got his waiver.

Eaton has all the physical tool. However he is very raw. He does not like contact. And does not play very physical. His high school coaches are hoping the light comes on this season..

I played with GJ at Canton before he transferred to Gilmer. Our coach (his dad) was shot before our junior year, but he came back to coach us junior year. After that season, GJ transferred to Gilmer and his dad got a job at Baylor if I remember right. A receiver from Canton tried to transfer to Gilmer with him and got denied by the UIL. He played at a private school senior year and ended up winning a TAPPS state championship in 2006.

So, with the Demas situation, if he ends up going to a TAPPS school, he can still play even after losing UIL eligibility.

Kids get denied eligibility all the time. We get at least one denied every year, and you almost never hear about it. The only reason Demas is a big deal is because he's a high profile recruit. If the behind the scenes details were made public you'd understand why it's a 6-0 vote in favor of him not playing. If the UIL becomes lax in this area the integrity and popularity of public school athletics will in the state of Texas will collapse and it'll become a Florida/Cali/Louisiana type where private schools and pay to play dominate the high school athletic landscape.  Also worth nothing about 90% of transfers are granted eligibility to play for the new teams and this is nothing new. It's been going on for years.

Caldwell is a kid TCU usually lands and turns into a stud!  I like the kid.  Eaton has the offer list and they're similar in size.  But, I'd give the nod to Caldwell.

That’s a really good question. I wasn’t a big fan of taking Caldwell last year either. Imo, in 2-3 years in the system both could play (especially as depth) vs KSt, Iowa St, Baylor, etc but I’m looking at playoffs and vs Bama, Clemson,Ou etc. if we lose a CB (to targeting or injury) I don’t think either are good enough. Especially to take them in back to back classes and to take one this early in a small class doesn’t make sense to me. I hope I’m wrong, it’s happened before :lol:

Thank me for this post. Enlightened me about the UIL. I also just read some of the reason it was a 6-0 vote and if half of them are true then I am see why the kid isn’t eligible to play. Sounds like it was about bettering his academics. Thanks again!

You just described Michael Huff's HS profile.

I actually heard Caldwell's name a couple of times over the past two weeks (when I ask who stands out).

Good enough for me.

No, it wasn’t. See my comment above. I was at the high school when it happened.

    • RES SCHEDULE STANDINGS RANKINGS         LOG IN           Friday Five: Five teams not named Alabama or Clemson who have a realistic shot to win the national title If the Crimson Tide or the Tigers don't win the College Football Playoff, here's five teams who could by Tom Fornelli  @TomFornelli 3 hrs ago • 5 min   Over the summer, I wrote about the 16 teams that can realistically win a national title. The premise of the post that while every team technically starts the season with the same chance, the reality is much different. Now, only a few weeks into the season, that list of 16 has been culled a bit. It hasn't stopped anybody from asking me a familiar question, though. Whether on radio, podcasts or social media, I've been asked multiple times some variation of "which team is most likely to win the national title if it isn't Alabama or Clemson?" Well, for this week's Friday Five, I'm going to answer the question, though I doubt it will stop anybody from asking me. There's still a very long way to go in the season, but based on what we've all seen so far, these are the five teams I would give the best odds to right now. 5. Texas: Sometimes I wish I called this feature Friday Four instead of Friday Five because it's not always easy coming up with a fifth entry for the list. This was one of those times. I was going back-and-forth between Texas and all the honorable mentions listed below and ultimately decided on Texas for a couple of reasons. First of all, Texas is a talented team, and you need talent to win national titles. In 247Sports's team talent rankings, the Longhorns rank 7th in the country, ahead of the honorable mentions. More than that, however, Texas has an "easier" path to the College Football Playoff. There's only one obstacle in its way in the Big 12, and it's named Oklahoma. Now, it won't be easy to beat Oklahoma twice in the same season, but it's not impossible. Meanwhile, Auburn might be the third or fourth-best team in its own division. Michigan hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2011. Penn State has to get through Ohio State as well. Notre Dame can get to the playoff, but it has to be perfect to do so, and that's very hard to do. Then there's Oregon, which might be the best team in the Pac-12, but being the best team in the Pac-12 doesn't seem to mean much to those who decide which teams get in. So Texas gets this fifth spot in a bit of a tie-breaker. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/friday-five-five-teams-not-named-alabama-or-clemson-who-have-a-realistic-shot-to-win-the-national-title/
