The highlight of him getting a block in the middle of the field, realizing his guy is breaking away down the sideline, and turning on his afterburners to catch up and get the last block down the field
Love this.

He catches every ball with his hands when he doesn't have to. It's good to see that already, not all HSers have that.

Jumped up a ton of spots on the 247 composite and is now tied for #438 overall with 11 other players (so between 438-449), including Jack Larsen. #437 on the composite is the last 4-star recruit.

OMG. I just saw it.
This is Will Fuller part deux. Put a pin in it guys, Cam Williams is hugely important and immediately will challenge for snaps but Logan Saldate will not be waiting until his soph/jr year to contribute.

He might be a deep ball-only guy his first year, or maybe he'll get some bubble/tunnel screens mixed in but his acceleration and speed are incredible. We must keep him in the fold with the others. We're on the doorstep of 3 fantastic, early-contributing classes.

Agreed. Check out the unconscious competence at the 33 second mark of that clip when he just naturally switches the ball from his right hand to his left to avoid having it stripped by the defenders. No thinking. Just doing.

I don't think he has Fullers "fastest person in college and nfl combine" type speed, but he definitely is fast. I do expect him to have better hands, and probably a little bit better strength.

It is very hard to find a will fuller. If he hadn't had major hamstring constant injuries, he would still be dominating NFL.

It’s nice having back to back recruiting classes with healthy numbers at receiver. Both groups being able to contribute early is gravy.

Not entirely sure he’d still be in the NFL. Believe his plan was always to get paid and disappear pretty much.

Oregon State, Washington and Washington State all made offers here. That's quite credible enough for me.

We also have KK Smith to look forward to……he should also be a burner.

He's run 10.8 as a JR and I expect him to be in the 10.6x range this season but more importantly is the explosiveness! He's a 24'1" LJ'er and the State Champ favorite this season.

Exactly. There is a subtle difference in players who run fast 40 times. Some aren't the quickest out of the blocks but they just keep building and some have exceptional 0-10 and 10-20 yard splits. Tyree looks like the former to me, Saldate looks like like the latter. Both are great but his smooth strides and speed just scream Fuller. He has that same smooth athleticism that makes it look like he's never really shifting gears or pushing, his moves just happen.

And while I love many of our players, I think this is the first time I've gone all in on a guy since Kyren Williams. I like to pump up our prospects and I'm always hopeful but something in that clip from ISD clicked in my brain.

I love these back to back absolute hauls at WR in the 23 and 24 classes
Same. It was needed and they've shown the sense of urgency to get it done. Now they have to get coached up and worked through the program for a couple of years.

Wasn't an easy situation roster and two deep wise that unfortunately came to a head this year with Colzie and Thomas being injured more often than not.

Excited to see how he performs once on campus. Wouldn't surprise me to see him compared to another Faison.
