If that was really Manning spouting off, I'm assuming this rises to the level of pulling his offer??
laquivionte gonzales is the 50th best player in the country? kohl stewart is 51?
my mind is blown.
Keith Ford in the top-40 nationally is a joke.
I'm a fan of the ESPN 150 because they usually pimp the Texas commits hard, but I'm not sure anyone actually takes them seriously. Rivals and 247 are probably your better sources for more accurate rankings.
Sounds like a ME major to me
Did I miss him or is Prevot not in the 150
Edit: he is not in the 150 and is rated the number 21 DE in the country.

Like I said on the other thread: ESPN has not updated their numbers yet. This is the exact same order they released the watch list in. It should be viewed as outdated.
The only thing "released" is the number grades.
Damn, so Reuben Foster who is #2 overall has a 3 year old child already. Should fit right in at Bama.

so two more transfers means our # goes up by 2. any new offer possibilities not already talked about?
I think one of them was to get us down to 85 in the summer after the freshman report. So only one extra scholarship for 2013 at the moment.

This is probably my favorite tweet from Jinkens during that conversation from last night:

"Slidin they ass" is the new "slept they coach"
I remember awhile back we were discussing Jake's positionCelina’s Jake Raulerson, who is being recruited as a defensive end to Texas but could easily play on the offensive line, is the No. 78 prospect overall and No. 5 offensive tackle

It sure seems like Texas has addressed TEs in this class, in any event.
Having said that, go routes and the ability to stretch the field were critical in Harsin's O at Boise (T. Young comes to mind), so maybe this is the kind of guy we need.
I think Raulerson stays at DE all 4 years.
I have nothing to support my thoughts. I have no inside scoop.
"What he is not is the genetically freakish athlete than can just walk into a different meeting room and start rushing the passer, I don't see an Aaron Humphrey ceiling here. I see a kid who is an expert at what he does, and any talk of moving positions is just a hedge in case he can't gain the needed size. . .
His good news for you is that he's probably the most polished, perfect offensive lineman I have ever seen in high school. . . Bottom line is, he needs another 30 pounds at least to play OL, and my personal opinion is that Texas will always have better DEs than what he could become."
