If this kid was from another State he would be rated a 5. LSU did great here.

Burrow was not rated a 5 don't need to be a 5* burrow is prime example : )

I love it. A Heisman gets kids excited about a program.

He is also young, and may end up growing a few inches taller. I can see DB's not wanting to blitz more than once.

Reminds me of Ben Roethlisberger - gonna be really hard to sack

Can't wait to see us with a string of QB's excelling and developed by Brady after what he did with Burrow. Hope TJ works hard and is ready when it's his time.

Ensminger is the QB coach, not Brady.

No, Ensminger is the OC. Brady is assistant OC and QB coach.

I don't know much about Finley. Is he an accurate passer?

The video shows talent but I wanted to see some Cam Newton moves. Opponents won't like to see the QB draw.

I am assuming because of his size, that he will not be fun to tackle when he runs. If he can throw, watch the F out.

This Kid can sling. His decision making is little concerning but that can be fixed.

Any word from a reliable knowledge source just how legit this kid is?

Seen him since a freshman. Nice kid. Good arm. Nothing like Cam Newton running the ball. Probably at best a 4.8 forty.

I was assuming it was a typo that was edited, I just made a joke off his comment. I dunno. It's Larry, anything is possible.
