    Colzie can be dangerous at the slot for ND.

    10.36 for DK - right in the mix early and gets passed down the stretch. Probably outweighs next biggest guy by 30 pounds. Post race interview hilarious seeing him hulk over the winner.

    That much more impressed with a HS kid of Colzie's size running a 10.82.

    Colzie and Styles could both earn serious minutes this year if raw athletic talent is enough to break through.

    These are my kind of traits.

    I really just think the ND hivemind dumped him mentally when he decomitted. Was a big time prospect, and still is.

    One of my favorites from the 2021 class. I don't have high hopes for him this year, but he and Styles next year as starters is a conversation for the future. Can't wait to see him on the field.

    It would be nice to see all of our freshman WR's show our older WR they want their spot and see how the older WR's respond.

    Right. Maybe his 40 times are worse? or cone drills? There are people with long speed who lack suddenness/acceleration, hopefully he has both. That's what can make a dominant receiver.

    I think, assuming Austin is healthy, you still almost have to throw Colzie and Styles with the 1s for a few days. If Wilkins and Lenzy aren’t going to “grab” the spot then three things possibly happen if you do that. Either it lights a fire under Lenzy/Wilkins and they earn the spot, Colzie/Styles goes out and takes the spot or you’re back to where you started.

    Real shame that he couldn't EE. I think Styles is studly and would compete for time if he didn't have two older guys at his likely starting spots, albeit he still may get on the field. Colzie fills an immediate need for a big bodied WR with Austin still in recovery.

    I certainly think he’ll get a shot. If I’m BK, Rees, and Del. I’m making a very concerted effort to make Styles and Colzie feel involved.

    6’4 WR’s that high jump 6’8 and run 11 sec 100’s don’t grow on trees. Let’s get it, Deion.

    Very good numbers. While he won't use the track start on the field, it will help with his explosiveness at the LOS.

    I'd go look for it but it's most likely in a tweet that got corrupted when Thanos snapped his fingers.
    That’s not the same body as a Sophomore. The impressive part is this guy is not even in college yet but he’s that size and moving like this.

    Chase's strong track and field profile included an 11.05-second 100 meters and a 24-foot, 2 1/2-inch long jump, which won the Louisiana 5A state title his junior year.

    Smith ran a sizzling 10.67 100 and a 22.45 200 as a senior, following a 45-foot, 3 1/2-inch triple jump in his junior year.

    Toney was a two-sport athlete who competed in track and field. He posted an 11.50 100 and a 21-5 long jump (not to mention throwing the javelin 148 feet).

    If he can run and jump like this, he doesn’t need any wiggle, lol.

    But, in reality if he’s going to stay at WR I do think getting in and out of his breaks with make the difference between a possible 1st rd WR or just an NFL guy. But what a athlete to for Bali’s, Kelly, Rees, and Del to work with.

    There is just no way, if we knew this information when ratings were being done, he’s not a top 50 to possible 5 star guy.

    If he even has a little more wiggle then Boykin....

    I was going to say the same thing. If he can track the ball well and if he has good acceleration, could be a monster pick up for us.

    From what I heard from my dawg pals (early on) is that UGA's roster was heavy on big WRs, and they just weren't pressing for him.

    I was still surprised he signed here too. Someone also mentioned that the HS he went to was a prep school, so perhaps he's just a smart kid lol.

    Yea, poor wording by me, I'll blame it on lack of sleep, lol. It should read, it kind of feels like the staff knows more than most. Because the knock on winning the Colzie sweepstakes was that the others on his list weren't recruiting him very hard or had spots for him. Similar to the ESB recruitment. And that turned out pretty good.

It kind of feels like the staff may know something we don't here. Johnson, Styles, and Colzie at X, W, and Z.
