You guys will really like the Taco video, he looks great for not starting.
Thanks for sharing, they all look great!
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Do Smith and Thomas both start both ways? You have to wonder how fresh their legs are, and not seeing the full potential at the respected positions.
Yea, Taco looks pretty solid for a backup at the HS level.
Love the kids motor, never gives up on plays.
I think Taco should release a 7-minute video of him goofing off while sitting on a bench, just to say "Up yours" to the Ohio fans that try to mock him for not starting.
This is gonna sound weird, because I agree Taco looked pretty good, but Taco also looked a little soft. It appeared on a few tackles that he tried to slip to the side of the ball carrier and drag him down, rather than driving through him.
Am I crazy on that? Is it too small of a sample size?
Deveon Smith is a beast! That is all.
I'm calling him the Escape Artist, he breaks and gets away from so many tackles
Seriously, Is the tackling that bad or is he really that hard to bring down?
Not sure, but at one point looks like 3 kids about to tackle him and he spin moves out of it.
Smith's stiff arm at the 0:50 sec mark was brutal.
He's a beast. You have to tackle him below the waist if you want to bring him down, and even then you're not guaranteed success.
DeVeon Smith slamming MSU verbal Jalyn Powell down is always fun to watch
I never understood the comment about his playing time by the Ohio fans. Are we evaluating the coaching or the talent?
I agree he looks really athletic, but sometimes loses leverage and doesn't use his hands very well. Looks to avoid the power physical rush in order to use his speed and quickness. He is only a junior is high school though, I think he is going to be a great player by the end of next year.

At what point in the video is this?
Taco is a freak! the combination of size, speed and athleticism is rare. once he fills out in our s&c program and gets his technique coached up this kid is gona be a beast. I can't wait to see him in the maize and blue.
2013 MSU commit Jalyn Powell is the guy that loses his helmet trying to tackle Smith at 1:05ish

Powell is also the QB that DeVeon Smith destroys at 1:20
And Powell misses the tackle in the plays against the black team with the gold helmets at 3:45 and all the plays around there.
Agreed, looks like a slightly bigger version of mike hart, has great vision, cuts and plows through traffic, the kid is gona be a sledgehammer behind our oline, the combination of smith and shallman at rb is definetly gona wear out some defenses.
That gold helmet team is Warren G Harding...Home of Prescott Burrgess,Mario Manningham,and the headcase Maurice Clarett
