      Good pick-up at a position of need. Davon Carrington is he close to pulling the trigger for us as well?

                this is technically true, but that verbal is softer than a pillow. He verballed just in case they didnt have a spot for him. I read he still intends to visit ND

                  WTF? Stepped out to get some groceries and I come home to this?!!!

                  YEAHHHHHHH BOOOYYYYYYYY!

                  Number 9! Nice because the kid is a hitter, and is already being compared to Zibby (prob b/c they're both of fair skin lol; but let's hope he can cover the deep ball better), AND his pops and brother (I think, gotta check on that) graduated from Stanford.

                  Another shining example of the power of a ND visit. Get 'em on that beautiful campus, and anything can happen. Welcome aboard Chris!!!!

                    I love his film. Similarities to Zibby are spot on

                        Think Zibby was a bit more athletic. Not an Irish alum, but he reminds me of Eric Weddle. Not the best athlete in the world, but was one of the smartest players on the field, and would never get beat

                            Zibby was more athletic than that in 2004 when he was still in high school?

                                Wow, kid can hit. No wonder Tenuta loves this guy. Looks like a good fit for the Nickelback. I love how our defense is recruiting players that are perfect against the spread

                                            I am predicting him as another kyle McCarthey.
                                            Just super solid. I think they have pretty close to
                                            the same numbers coming out of high school. I
                                            think this is a great pickup.

                                              That's kinda what I thought too. McCarthy > Zibby, punt returns aside.

                                                Easy, I love McCarthy but Zibby was a playmaking badass....I know he got beat deep some, but a lot of times it was when our whole defense had their heads up their ass....If he is anything like McCarthy or Zibby I will be very happy.
                                                Welcome aboard!! Lets keep this going, i love getting emails from Scout saying we got another one.

                                                    Wait, he got beat SOME??? LOL. C'mon brother, I respect the hell out of Zibby and I have no qualms whatsoever with you loving big Z, but the dude got beat deep A TON. ha ha, it's all good dude.

                                                    As for Badger, my favorite quote was about him "just wanting to come in and compete for playing time and just play violent". Love it! When have you ever heard a recruit say that???

                                                    One more thing: Mike Wiltfong of ISD got a text from Chris Martin, who said something to the effect of being very excited that we "brought another hard-hitter to my defense!" That's right, he said MY defense. Apparently they camped together and know each other. My bromance grows and grows with Mr. Martin and I'm not ashamed to admit it (yeah, we went through a rough patch last week, but we worked it out and are on good terms again...no Jon and Kate thing here)...

                                                        Zibby was a boxing badass, a good punt returner, and a model player and student by most accounts. He is also an excellent athlete, and an NFL player. I even bought a #9 Jersey a few years back. That said, there was no drop off from him to McCarthy. Kyle is one of the best tacklers on the team. Zibby would too often go for the huge hit, only to have the other player spin off and keep going while he ate dirt. I attribute much of his weakness to the scheme. Minters pass defense was pathetic, and later on Zibby felt he had to cheat up to shore up the run defense.

                                                          Don't get me wrong I like the pick up as I think he's a good fit for the program but he's nowhere near as athletic or as fast as Zibby. Btw, he's Mormon and there is more than a decent chance he goes on mission for a couple years. He's not an impact player that going to see PT as a freshman so he will more or less be RS and then go on mission with him returning for 2013 season.

                                                            Yeah he did, but that has more to do with his playing style. He liked to take risks and go for the big play. I love Zibby and his style, guy was a playmaker, but he was not on a team who could cover his mistakes. Zibby would be better suited on todays Irish team than the 05-06 teams. There's a reason Baltimore wanted Zibby so bad, guy was a football player. So is Chris Badgger. This kid may not have the measurables, but guy is someone who will contribute. Could be the sleeper of the class

                                                              Exactly. McCarthy is a safe player. Which i don't mind especially playing next to Hayseed, who is more like Zibby in my opinion in his style of play.

                                                                  Much of Zibby's problem can be attributed to the defese called by Minter. There were times, especially the NC game where he got "burnt", but the player that beat him for a long TD, wasn't his guy in coverage. Ndukwe was out of position as he was often in their zone coverages.

                                                                                          How many Div 1 LB play at 178? He'd have to pack at least 50 pounds on the body, that did test, to be a Div 1 LB.

                                                                                          "He can easily get faster ..." Some kids do but not easily. They go to speed school and work and puke their butts off. I know several that have done so successfully BUT most kids add to their time when their coach doesn't have his thumb on the clock. It's amazing how HS times get slower when athletes hit campus. Just as most college (team) times get slower when NFL prospects get clocked for the money.

                                                                                          That's an lineman's number, not LBs, much less an DBs.

You are either fast or slow. You may be able to get a smidge faster but other than that there is just no getting faster.

Lets just hope this kid gets faster and starts knocking the hell out of people when he gets on the field here.

Kid can hit, has a football players mentallity. Not saying he will be a superstar but he seems like someone who will contribute. He is a safety with a linebackers menatlity
