Tech takes a kid thats undersized but actually passed on Dylan long at SPS a couple years ago. The long kid was a beast in 5 A
It's all about the system a team runs, as well. Long was undoubtedly talented, but didn't really have what Tech was looking for in a ballcarrier. It's not because he's white either, as Tech has two white RBs.
It's a shame SPS is going away from the fullback position (what I played over there) and moving to the spread. But, the times are a-changin'.
