    Jamie U gave the prospect comparison of Gregory Rousseau which sounds great to me. This is a guy I think we'll all love to see in his senior season.

      Wish Koon was here to complain about another 3 star.

      "Nick Saban only offered because he was trying to trick Kelly into wasting a pick on Agu so Saban can still Wesolak!"

            It’ll be interesting to see if his teammate, SDE from Germany, Linus Zink, that committed to Lea at Vanderbilt turns out to be a good one.

              Nice pickup for the Irish. Does this mean Wesolak doesn't commit to ND? Tom Lemming thinks Agu has 5* potential:

                Wesolak is releasing a top 15 so that kind of shows where he’s at in the process. He went from committing to ND to releasing a top 15. I’d bet both Wesolak and Moss are in that take no matter when scenario but that has a long time to play out, it seems.

                    Wonder where Agu ends up finally ranked once the LOI is signed. Is it much higher than he is now? Seem's like an early evaluation win the likes of Kyle Hamilton. One can only hope...

                      His current ranking on 247, if we’re being honest, is just random. They had him as a TE and Loy probably told someone uhh hey we got this kid committing to ND in a few days and everyone is actually looking at him as a DE. So they flipped him to a high 3 Star DE right before the commitment. I’d expect a more serious eval result in a 93+ type rating

                        I feel the same in that his rating will rise over time. It has never really mattered to me because I feel the staff does an outstanding job of evaluating, especially on the DL, but it would be nice to have the quality show in the rankings.

                              It's a premium article from Loy so I'll just leave this snippet here.

                                                  The talent at that canoe wasn’t very good but he looks good doing it so it should be translate.

                                                          Too bad. He has a ton of potential, and upside. Good luck kid.

                                                                              Not a bad guy to play for when you just decommitted from ND and are also considering playing for Pat Fitzgerald at Northwestern lol.

                                                                                          However, with Gobaira and Keeley in back to back classes it’s hard to be negative on the positions future.

                                                                                          If he does end up at Vandy I’ll always wonder if Lea was doing some neg crootin on ND. Who got in his ear about the depth chart? Was he under the impression PT on a playoff caliber program was easy to come by?

Dude is talented, but will need some development to be a successful D1 prospect. He isn’t a day one plug and play right now. If he’s playing early for Vandy, or anyone, his learning curve will be steep, and there will be a lot of heartache.

It takes a special player to accept the Ade Ogundeji spot in a class. They're still going after Moss, they landed 5* Keeley and they aren't done recruiting other Vypers. I can see how he may have had a change of heart.
