    Time for a profile.

    From Xavier Watts HS. Runs 10.9 100's and 21.8 200's... as a 6-2/200 LB.

    This is the kind of speed you sell out for. Funny thing is, he doesn't play as fast on film as Sebastian Cheeks, to me at least.

    Anyways, they know who he is and there are some mutual follows.

      He’s an absolute stud. First rd LB type ceiling with that speed.

          BGI has had multiple updates on him in the last couple of months. Sounds like we’re recruiting him pretty hard. One of my favorites for the cycle.

            Is he still.being recruited as a vyper? Wonder if he is a better Rover to buck?

              He trains under from ND linebacker Mike Goolsby in the off-season. Goolsby brings him up again and again on the BGI Podcast with Lou and Singer whenever they talk about defensive recruiting.

                Love him; tons of room for physical development.

                  I thought I read somewhere that his parents both played at U. of Illinois, so maybe there isn't the strong pull toward Nebraska. could be another JOK with all that speed. also having Xavier helps.

                    Yea, top 5 want for me in the class.

                    Ziegler, Cheeks, Jackson, Tafiti, Ford, and Wesolak are the front 7 guys I got circled.

                        STRONGGG front 7 wish list there. Gotta add little Hinish in there as well, and Since the DT depth will look like:

                        SR - Lacy, Cross
                        JR - Mills, Keanaaina
                        SO - Rubio
                        FR - Hinish?

                        May want a 2nd DT. Curry would be fantastic, but if he is still leaning Ohio St, Miles? (Although I read he is falling off like Rooks)

                          I left off the DT's because I have no idea what's going on there, lol. It would seem like Hinish and Miles are the guys but how do you not take Kaleb Artis or Anthony Lucas if you can get them.

                            I thought Artis and Miles wanted in. Kind of wondering what the hold up is

                                    Sounds like Freeman will be treating him and Cheeks as such.

                                      Really interested to see his year one effect on recruiting. With the talent on the roster already and coming in, with development we could be a few bright newcomers away from being very dangerous in the coming years.

                                        Will he still be recruited as a drop?

                                          I haven't ever read anything that would indicate he was specifically recruited for Vyper. He was always being recruited by Lea and Lezynski from I've gathered.

                                          I've seen Goolsby at BGI mentioned that he can play on the edge and he does some training for that. But nothing beyond that.

                                            I thought I read in another thread he was potentially a drop? Either way I never liked him at drop.l, at least not as much as a Buck or a Mike.

                                                                                      10.5 LB's only come around every so... NEVER!

A 6'2, 200-215 lb freak speed safety is something we could use. I don't even know if it's possible for him to "outgrow the position" because that kind of speed is unreal. I'd love to have verified 3 cones/ shuttles because his straightline is off the charts. Wonder how quick he is when repeatedly changing direction.

But how many could you make a quick reasoning on not being here? 5? 6? How many LBs you take this year probably relates most to how the 2019 class sorts out. Liufau is only one you’re probably deeply confident is on the roster in 2022 of that group. Underclassmen is only 2, 3 if you think Ghee is part of it.
