            Jake Brown saying that Cooks went by the school to look at Hill as a potential LB option, most likely ILB. They must have liked what they saw. He's pretty well put together for a HS senior. Hopefully we'll find some highlights.

              Seems like we're identifying contingency plans right now. Which is better than completely whiffing at a position and once again having horrible depth.

                He must be freaking out with the offer.

                  Christian on ISD said he had been quietly on our radar for a bit before Cooks went down to see him today. Guess what he saw / heard cemented things for us on the offer front. Can't get mad at an offer of a Texas athlete that fills a position of dire need.

                  He told Jake Brown the offer was 'very humbling' and he is 'in shock right now'.

                            Before you say that lets get some highlights and find some pictures of him. Physically he's a impressive looking kid.

                                There are physically impressive kids at every single school in the country.

                                We are suppose to be recruiting football players, not bodies. Just my opinion.

                                  While I agree with the statement you have never seen the kid play football so how can you make that assessment because rivals and 247 didn't rate him high.

                                    Not to be a stalker haha but his twitter account is @kolinhill45. He's following back Irish fans right now so he's excited. With that offer list, I give Diaco/Cooks credit for taking a gamble.

                                                      This is why film is meaningless. He is apparently an unranked kid, but he looks big, fast, and hard-hititng to me.

                                                      I know nothing, but if he has a twin brother with similar offers, is there any chance they are going separate ways?

                                                                    SCHERTZ -- Clemens coach Jared Johnston sees the trend that has taken over high school football everywhere he looks.

                                                                    Teams have turned to up-tempo and no-huddle offenses, employing four-receiver sets in the latest revolution of the game. But Johnston prefers substance over style, which explains his old-school approach.


                                                                    “You can score a lot of points, but if you can't stop anybody, you're not going to win very many ballgames,” Johnston said. “That's what we hang our hats on. We want to make sure that our guys that are on defense are special football players.”

                                                                    The Buffaloes have plenty of such players on their defense, headlined by fraternal twins Kolin and Kaleb Hill. The senior defensive ends have combined for 70 tackles, 13 sacks, 12 quarterback pressures and five forced fumbles.

                                                                    Clemens' defense, led by coordinator Danny Lengyel, is allowing 5.3 points and 186.8 yards per contest and has recorded two straight shutouts heading into Friday's District 27-4A game against Lockhart (3-1, 1-0) at Lehnhoff Stadium.

                                                                    “Defensively, we expect to go out there and get the job done,” Kolin Hill said. “We're a lot faster than we were last year.”

                                                                    The Buffaloes (4-0, 1-0) also are bigger and stronger, attributes that have figured prominently in why they have made a swift turnaround from last year's 0-10 mark.

                                                                    This time last year, Clemens had allowed 129 points through four games, almost 30 per contest. A big part for the struggles, Johnston said, was the Buffaloes were simply physically overwhelmed by opposing teams.

                                                                    “We knew we had to work on things, like getting bigger, getting stronger,” Kaleb Hill said.

                                                                    The players lived in the weight room during the offseason. The Buffaloes spent all of their time getting buff.

                                                                    “I just kept telling them to trust the process,” Johnston said. “When you go 0-10, as a young kid, you're like, 'OK, is this really going to work?' To their credit, not one kid questioned it. We said these are the things that we need to do to get better. These are the things we need to do to win.”

I'm glad that it sounds like they look pretty good, that he plays good competition and looks physically ready (which makes his 2star ranking bizarre. Scouts had to have evaluated him by now).

                                                                          I mean... I'm no scout... but if that's 2 athleticism then about half of our recruits over the past decade should've been 1 players.

The Hills read plays well and have strong motors to go with enough speed to keep up in the Pac-12. Detractors will point to a lack of BCS offers and a lack of stars, but Colorado's recruiting staff appears to know what it's doing in Texas.

He looks big, long and athletic, but the thing I like most is how he actually engages and sheds the blockers. He's not just running by or bull-rushing everyone in that film, but rather using good technique and hands to read the play, knock the lineman's hands away, and then run down the ball.

                                                                                  Also, 4A competition is usually pretty strong, but I don't know anything about his district or scheduled competition.

Thats the goal right? For the staff to identify football players. He looks every bit the part of a D1 prospect.
                                                                                              I hear ya, but being a D1 prospect doesn't make you capable of becoming a difference maker. We need difference makers. If this kid came in late in the cycle as a depth/project type guy, then yes... I would be psyched.
