    Any word on his weight?

    His Rivals profile has him at 6'5" 195... solid measureables.

    Thanks, wasn't sure if that was accurate. Scout still listing him at 158.

    Kyle has to improve tremendously to get an offer from tOSU. He has all of the athletic measurables one would want, but right now he is not a "football player."

    A track guy who plays football? Someone who is athletic but raw? Are you able to expound?

    That is the predominant opinion right now. KJ was a disappointment this year...hopefully he can get it together for his senior season.

    He was in the Rivals100 for next year though... so somebody must think he is pretty good.

    Nobody is saying he doesn't have potential, but he has not yet met that potential. Being from Glenville, having off the chart measurables, and already being in the databases will get you that type of attention.

    so true, and not just of Glenville...

    Well more so than if he played for Yellow Springs. :wink:

    Being at a high profile program does help quite a bit, and Glenville is about as high profile as a school can be at the moment.

    my point is that there are other schools where there is equal bias...Mission Viejo, Hoover, St. Bonaventure, Long Beach Poly, DeMatha, De La Salle, Bergen Catholic. kids from schools like these are automatically bumped up a few notches because of where they play and who they play for. this is nothing new and has been going on since recruiting services first showed up on the scene.

    Wisconsin, Ohio State, Boston College, Florida State, Florida and LSU are some of the major programs in touch. Ohio State (leader), Florida State and Wisconsin are at the top of his early list. Jefferson will take some visits and then make a decision.
     
  13. He is a project at this stage, but I think with his height and speed, if he can add some muscle mass to his frame he could get an offer, but I don't look for it to come anytime soon.

    he definately needs to be more physical and quit trying to avoid contact. He also needs lots of time in the weightroom. But if he really puts forth the effort to improving his ceiling is about as high as they come.

    Wasn't it true that he didn't get much opportunity to play last season due to being behind Daven Jones, Royce Adams, Ray Small, and Ray Fisher?


    I'm not going to say anything about him until his Senior season is over. Some people simply bloom alot later than others.
