Josh Atkinson is the son of George Atkinson, former player for the Oakland Raiders, and twin brother of George Atkinson, III, who holds an ND offer.

Josh is a couple of inches shorter, about 10 pounds lighter, than George and ONLY runs a 4.47 forty. George is listed at 4.4. Josh plays CB while George is a Safety.

According to Scout which lists Josh with 3 Stars and makes him their #32 CB the brothers are not necessarily a package deal. They'd obviously like to play together but they're not joined at the hip. They may go their own way. Scout has Oregon leading for Josh.

The two brothers currently hold several offers from the same schools including Arizona, Oregon, Oregon St, San Jose St, UW, and WSU.

Josh has been to a Cal Jr Day and visited UCLA but so far neither have offered.

ONLY, nice. i say go get the pair of them. thats not a bad list of offers for the young man. it would be neat to see the brothers lock down one half of the field!

I'm not impressed. 4.47 for a corner is average at best. Wait for a better candidate; it's still early to lock in an average player.

4.47 is not awesome for a corner, but he does have good size at 6'. Remember, the D we will be using actually prefers bigger corners to faster corners, so in terms of his numbers, he fits right in. Weather or not he gets offered will depend on how he plays in person.

If he can stick with receivers and can break up a pass/make a tackle, he's an improvement

Everybody gets so caught up in 40 times, first of all if you are sub 4.5, you are fast. Besides that I would be more worried about the fluidity of his hips and being able to turn and run in coverage.

Average at best ???

Wait for a better candidate?

Which one would that be?

His numbers are as good as those already offered by ND.

Lock him in? He hasn't even been offered.

i hate 40 times people fall in love/hate a player over it. anquan boldin ran a 4.7 at the combine but no ones crying about that. and a 4.47 is good no matter what the position, since your complaining about it can YOU do better

Even if the kis is a 4.7, if he has good form and is physical then he can play more zone than man. Never doubt the ability of a zone corner.

According to Chris Courtney, eDucks.com

7/8
It's no secret that the Oregon coaching staff has made serious impressions on twin brothers George and Josh Atkinson from Livermore (CA) Granada. Though George appears to be a little more wide open, Josh has firmly contended that Oregon sits atop his list of offers as of right now. ...

Not convinced they're a package deal. We could use either one of these brothers.

Did someone say they were a package deal? I haven't gotten that impression from the articles so far. Either one would be nice. Both would be better. I think the excitement is that the brother who didn't have ND leading now does.

Sure would make it easier for Mom and Dad on Game Day if they played for the same team.

It would be awesome to get both of the young men! But I would take either one seperately!

I feel like II had an article this past week saying something about Atkinson brothers being a possible package deal. I'm not 100% on that but that may be where people have seen it.
