How big of an impact is Shannon making on the recruiting trail so far? Has anyone heard anything? Maybe he will talk to the Mitchell kid from Plano... that'd be a solid grab I think.

Anyone else sick of already seeing "predator" on TV these days -- Adidas, Subway, EA Sports, etc.

Don't think Shannon has made a huge impact yet on the recruiting trail. He was at a camp in San Antonio this past weekend, but that is really about it. Hell, he just started. Yes, we need him on the recruiting trail, but we also need him to get familiar with the D considering practice is coming up soon. With the LB depth we have right now, we need him focused on coaching.

LA Frog, yes I am sick of "predator" aka Jar Jar Binks! He sure is setting himself up for a big fall if he doesn't live up to the hype, but I think he will actually be good(hard to admit). Then again, he got paid, so isn't that all that matters if your a pro athlete these days?

Agreed Bucknasty... (nonsubscriber status for those sites) but I saw some article about our commits talking about it... curious what was said.

Fortt is going to Cal.

BuckNasty said...

Not a whole lot said at first. Some of them said it was a great hire and were excited to meet him, a few said they didn't even know who he was. That probably changed shorty afterwards. I think everyone is still curious as to what his role is in recruiting right now, if he has one. I would bet he has a limited role right now in recruiting some LBs and is mainly focused on learning this defense.

By the way that TCU produced by TCU student = not very funny. I didn't watch it before I posted it.
