there is no way he will see the field at safety why not give him the option to change positions or stay where at safety even if he may never see the field. 

I guess with your "level of football knowledge" you think this is the wrong thing to do.





yes it's wrong for a college player to choose which position he plays.
do you follow cfb?
can you imagine saban, belichik, or any good coach giving positional decisions to a non established player?

I know this will probably be too difficult for you to understand given your need for brain surgery and all of that, but recruiting services often and do miss on their evaluations. Which is why most coaches don't go by recruiting services rankings but by their own evaluations and rankings instead.

He was obviously recruited for his athletic ability and potential, as opposed to his ability to play safety.

Then why put him in a group where we're loaded (WRs) and not where we don't have as much depth (CBs). He has played on the defensive side of the ball.


I get that if he hasn't lived up to his high school recruiting ranking and all that but to keep moving the kid around is just weird. We lack corners, he's played on defense, he's a talented kid, let him play on defense. We have enough wide receivers. Just my opinion.

how the frick are you still allowed to post here?

you do nothing but make unprovoked personal attacks when anyone doesnt think O cums pink starbursts.

you literally never post about the actual playing of the game.

This will be one more thing good to use against LSU on the recruiting trail.

Stevens was a 5 star recruit. Could have gone to any school in the nation.
If I were him, I consider transferring after this last move.

This guy (CP3LSU25) has to be a fan of another SEC school posing on this board as an LSU fan. Either that or he is one miserable SOB. I don't know how someone could go through life like that. I would just blow my own brains out if I were that miserable.

re: Stevens moved to WR on spring roster
Well, if the kid stood out at either position, he’d have a fast track to playing time, wouldn’t he? I don’t know about you guys, but if I’m a coach and a player is killing it at one position or another, I don’t go looking to move him to see where he fits.

I haven’t heard his name anywhere as far as kids standing out. Maybe he’s just not as good as his 5* said he would be? Ever think of that? Some kids don’t transition as well as others. You would think if he were actually the 5* they claimed, he’d be getting more reps than Justin fricking Jefferson.

Justin Jefferson is probably the best route runner on the team. Him or Giles. Don't question the Jefferson genes

re: Stevens moved to WR on spring roster
Well, the Rant loves to judge a player by his high school ranking. Nevermind they have no clue what the kid does in practice.

Stevens was a 5*. Jefferson was not. Therefore, Stevens MUST get the reps and not Jefferson. That’s totally based on seeing absolutely zero practices

Yup. Pretty much. If Jacoby Stevens is good enough to get on the field and play, he will. You would have figured people have seen this before. Over the years there is always 3 stars that out perform 5 stars. Literally all the time. I'm not saying Jefferson is better than Stevens by the way, just saying it's easily possible.

I think everyone can see Stevens is a hell of an athlete though. Just gotta put him where he will help the team most. If our 3 wide set is Marshall, Dee/Jamarr, and Giles with Stevens/Sullivan/Jefferson as our 4th, that's pretty fricking solid. Focus on the strengths of the team. I trust Aranda to make our secondary work.

No, he played both wide receiver and safety in high school, and he is too big to play cornerback.

Moreover, we are going to be fine at cornerback as Jontre Kirkland and Kary Vincent are really good.

Furthermore, when Kelvin Joseph played cornerback he was a five star, but when he switched to safety he dropped to a high four star. Hence, he is a better cornerback than he is a safety. Not to mention, that there is a glut at safety, which is why Stevens is swapping positions.

Several people on the team have said the reason people are concerned is that they don't know how good those guys back there actually are.

quote:

So you would prefer the kid stay at safety and just sit the bench for his entire career. Don't ever apply for O's job because you won't get it.

It's a good thing Russel Gage didn't stay at cornerback because he would never have seen the field like he did his final two seasons.

Furthermore, the kid doesn't have to move if he doesn't want to, but because he wants an opportunity to play he's taking it upon himself to change positions to have a better opportunity to play. Apparently, he is not slow like you are.

quote:

We lack corners, he's played on defense, he's a talented kid, let him play on defense. We have enough wide receivers. Just my opinion.


He's taking the place of Manny Netherly who swapped to cornerback a couple of weeks ago. Moreover, Stevens is too big to play cornerback.
