I actually met him last year in Eugene and he’s definitely taller than 6-4 . This is a good one for the Bruins.
Bruins are quietly building a defense.
Dead wood per LA Duck. To everyone else, seems like a good get!
So it appears to me that this is the game now. This is a kid who has 4 star talent. Redshirted and didn’t play a lot as a rd shirt frosh.
not long ago we would consider this normal. He would now begin his upward ascent to starter. Contributor. Then possibly star.
now he is upset that he couldn’t jump start those first couple years. And decides to take his trajectory to a new locale.
meanwhile oregon recruits hs 5 stars. Keeps those who survive and becomes a feeding ground for other peograms to continue the development of kids who didn’t show out early.
the result will be those that do leave oregon after 3 years and those that don’t will end up at other places and play 4-5.
im not judging. I’m mentally working through the sense of this.
so if you’re usc or ucla you have a choice. Recruit a top class of hs kids knowing you’re going to keep whoever pans out and lose the rest. Or go get those kids who are more proven and looking for greener pastures. Like recruiting a smaller and perhaps more elite class of hs kids. Assuming a greater percentage of those elite ones will stick around with PT and fill in the rest w transfers who are proven .
Does that sound like What we are seeing?
im trying to make sense of this crazy world we now live in
Brandon Huffman’s evaluation of KW out of HS:
“Has a quick first step and plays with leverage, using his length to get to the ball carrier and quarterback. Can get caught overpursuing but shows ability to get to the play quickly. Good at dipping and ripping, showing a variety of moves but also using his strength and physicality overpower blockers. Plays with consistency and shows a good motor and routinely makes impact plays. Projects as a Power 5 starter and third day NFL pick.”
