Lol. I check TD about once every 3 months. It has a tendency to irritate me and make me dumber all at the same time. Yes, Jarred Mitchell has underachieved but he is not too old by any stretch of the imagination. If he figures it out he has a legitimate shot at sticking in the bigs....

Not so much at AAA, but he is close to having to figure it out. If he was still at AA or below then absolutely. Several guys get the call from AAA between 25-30. As a prospect, he gets an extra year or two. With that ...

What film are you watching? Brandon has to clean up some footwork, but there is no way he is "way less polished." Jennings can't throw a 10-yard comeback. Brandon can spin that route at 20-yards on a dime. Brandon ha...

We had a 6-6 TE that played a little WR, Artavious Lynn. He is very gifted athletically, just needs to buckle down in the classroom and I anticipate some offers. William "Boo" McKnight, 6'2 200 WR/RB will be highly recruited next year. He put on a show in the dome against Acadiana....

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Brandon Harris has to be a major piece to our class in my opinion ... - LeagueCityTiger on 5/20/13 at 9:07 am|
His accuracy is affected by three things:
2) Learning not to throw everything hard
3) Parkway's offense does not dink and dunk. Everything is pretty much vertical passing game
All of these are correctable
What you can't teach coach and why he is so coveted is that there is n...

I think that all depends on where and what level you are playing your high school baseball. .366 in 5A Houston area baseball is pretty damn good especially in the BBCOR era especially if you are hitting homeruns as well.

The $400 remark was off-the cuff and was probably the wrong thing to say but I was dead right on everything else and I am of the absolute firm belief that LSU's decision was reactionary to Bama coming in and offering with no strings attached.
