    Was it just me or were some other players' pursuit angles terrrrrrrrible?

    The kid looks fast though.

      Very fun watching him tear up St X. the reffng there is atrocious (they beat my HS on a last second TD after we were forced to punt on a PHANTOM holding call and several instances of "frozen clocks" that were never corrected)

                According to rivals, he said there is an 85 percent chance he'll be playing in warm weather.

                  Is it possible that he knows about a warm front going through South Bend that we don't know about?

                        Just got offered by FSU, which is apparently the school he has been waiting on... I think his 85% chance just became a 95% chance.

                                If he does go to FSU, I hope he has a change of heart like Lynch, because this kid looks like he would be a phenomenal defensive back (I don't like his receiving ability from the vids posted, but hey, what do I know).

                                        Love this kid. He is literally everywhere and making great plays at the RB, WR or safety positions.

                                                  This is going to suck......

                                                  ESPN Insider

                                                  College Football Rumors - Rumor Central - NCAA - ESPN

                                                  HS teammate with Blake Countess. Blake has now cracked the starting DB lineup at Michigan and really caught Stefon's eye because it shows that if you are the best regardless of year that you will play.

                                                  "At first I was a little shaky with Michigan, because I knew Blake was one of the best guys out there but he wasn't playing," he said. "Then I noticed that he's gotten the starting job. He worked for it and won it, and that makes me feel more comfortable that they'll play the best guys."

                                                  Will come out with a Top 7 on November 29th, his birthday.

                                                  Plans on visiting Michigan in December.

                                                  Once his HS season ends he plans to announce his college decision on ESPN

                                                    The actual story is that he doesn't have good grades, but just got the preemptive go ahead from Michigan admissions. So now he is strongly considering them.

                                                    At the end of the day, I really don't think he ends up at Michigan.

                                                        Apparently he is listening.

If you watch Digg's tape he has almost everything you could ask for. Speed, Catching ability, doesnt go down after first contact, etc.. Dont get me wrong, I would take DGB any day of the week and twice on Sundays. IMO, I think Diggs is a little bit better

                                                                          People ignore this statistic at their peril.

                                                                          Everyone wants to assume they are the exception to the rule, and the fact is that exceptional students can thrive just about anywhere. As Myron Rolle deceptively demonstrates, you can end up with a Rhode Scholar at FLORIDA STATE of all places. But that is a reflection of Mr. Rolle, not FSU.

                                                                          The real question is "what happens to the average player?" If your son is a normal human being--and not an especially self-motivated kid academically like Myron Rolle or Wayne Lyons--he is going to adapt, at least partially, to the environment in which he is in.

                                                                          At that point, your are rolling the dice at most schools. If football is the only value, you are going to strive for the bear minimum. When you do this, a lot of kids fail. That is just human nature.

                                                                          So there there is the initial question of whether the kid graduates at all. But even then, there is the secondary question of whether he is actually graduating with the same education that other Michigan or USC students get? Or is there an athlete track?

                                                                          At ND, there is a culture of education, plain and simple. And because the administration and staff is aiming at achievement, players are not only graduating, but graduating with real majors. When you aim high, you achieve more. This is why ND is the best place for a football player who are NORMAL student to attends. A normal ND football player is actually going to get the great education ND offers.

If you watch Digg's tape he has almost everything you could ask for. Speed, Catching ability, doesnt go down after first contact, etc.. Dont get me wrong, I would take DGB any day of the week and twice on Sundays. IMO, I think Diggs is a little bit better
                                                                            Everyone is entitled to their opinion but my guess is that you will come close to standing alone on that one.

Oh yea, and he's got NFL size.

I just think Diggs would be more versatile and could any where on the field. I do think DGB is going to be the #1 redzone threat in the country right when he gets into college

IMO DGB is a much more raw player but has greater potential to become a dominant player as he grows older. Is he an EE? And happy thanksg
