From all reports Josh is a good kid and a good ATH but as far as fit it'll be interesting to see how this plays out. This is a special day for him and I'll share some thoughts at a later point. Congrats Josh!

I think BK and Co. have been pretty good at picking these later bloomers out of the crowd. Already an impressive athlete and turns into a monster if he can add 50 pounds relative to his junior tape (I'm assuming he was 175-180).

Seeing how he was just in for II and the staff got a good look at him bulked up significantly from last fall, I have no qualms with the offer and excited for the commitment.

I am surprised to see "bruising big back" labeled here where he looks thin, runs high and doesn't run over hardly anyone in the highlight video. Makes me curious if that is what he is bringing to camps since he really didn't need to do that in HS and coaches in camps may be putting him to that challenge.
Agreed. To be a "bruising big back" usually you have to have:
1. A solid, stocky build.
2. Run with good pad level.
3. Love contact.

Elijah Hood is a power back. Has solid speed and athleticism to go with a powerful build, incredible balance, and great strength. One of the reasons so many people were sour on Ty Isaac was his fumbilitis coupled with being snakebit with some injuries coupled with his running style where he ran around contact. I've yet to watch enough Josh Adams, but GAIII was 6'1" and almost 220 and his style dictated that he was absolutely not a power back. Unless Josh can get up to 230+ (which is questionable looking at this frame) I don't know how someone like that can be labeled a power back.

I like this kid as a LB. I don't like RBs 6'2" and over as a rule.

Here's how I see this year:

The staff is tired of swinging and missing with high 4-star or 5-star kids, and then scrambling to try to get the high 3-star kids with good potential that they have been slow-playing. So this year they are signing the close-calls early as a base--getting them locked in--so they can spend their energy fighting for the bigger fish later in the process.

In other words, they are signing the Kolin Hills and Niles Sykes at the beginning of the cycle, instead of scrambling to sign them later.

Still, I consider this a great ick-up. Kid is an athlete, and you need to load up on athletes! Welcome aboard.

I agree. A lot of people have called for this strategy in years prior when we have crazy depth issues mid-season, then latently complain in the offseason when we get high 3-star and 4-star kids early in the cycle. I'm happy for this kid.
