Surprising about Lewis
Wheatley is the best and will take the RB coach position to a new level IMO.

This is exactly why I prefaced that post with "I don't know when these times were run". And I showed an example of a high 4 or 5 star S/OLB running 4.7's.
If it makes you feel better Jalin Marshall (4.66) and Eli Woodard (4.63) also ran in the 4.6's

There's no way that the next Percy Harvin is that slow.
It was our 2014 commit Ward, BK said would flip
I must have missed that
Who is BK?
The writer from Bucknuts, Bill K-something...
When did he say that?
4.6 is fast for a HS senior and most guys get a lot faster after years in a D1 S & C program. IIRC Patrick Peterson ran like a 4.5 or a 4.6 as a HS senior and ended up running a 4.29 at his pro day.
If that number is legit for Delano imagine how fast this guy is going to be in a couple of years. I hope he gets a shot at corner.
Don't get too excited.
This is the scouting report (from a rival site) for a soon to be redshirt junior:
"At almost 6’3” and weighing close to 200 lbs, _______ is one of the fastest players in the state (4.3 forty). With his versatility and athleticism he can take away half the field in coverage, lock up on a wide receiver, crowd the line in run support or blitz."
Gotta be Josh Furman, but what does that have to do with Delano? When people talked about Furman playing running back, scouting people quickly fired back that he ran too upright and didn't have the wiggle to play RB. Kind of the same issues he has had at safety right? He still has 2 years left though and some guys just take longer to develop, especially if they miss a lot of practice due to legal issues prior to the season. Delano's scouting report seems very different from Furman. I believe Clint watched him at The Opening and said he had great hips and agility to go with his speed.
Well, that same other site lists hip flexibility as an area of improvement for Delano, but my point is to not get too excited about those common measurables.
Those metrics may tell you a lot about what type of player Delano will be, but aren't too helpful for overall quality. I think offer sheets (while still problematic) are a much better guideline for how good a recruit is and how excited we should be.
A few interesting tweets about Leon McQuay
Leon McQuay isn't sure if he'll have 3 or 5 hats for his announcement Friday. #Oregon #FSU #USC #Vandy #Michigan
Leon McQuay says he plans on enrolling early, only #FSU has admitted him as a mid-term student so far. He is working on the others #UAGame
I'm not liking our chances.
I hate hat parties.
What's the difference between 3 and 5? I'm sure he knows where he is going, especially by the time of his announcement. Everyone knows Oregon is trailing far behind the pack.
If I were a recruit I'd have two hats. A hand on each one. Make it real dramatic.
If he picks a Michigan hat I may have to change my mind about hat parties.
I think it's going to be USC. Unfortunately
It's legit. Ran it at The Opening.
Bad decision on his part if he does indeed choose USC, IMO.
