He gonna walk-on at A&M?
Looks good. Scrappy. Is he really 5'10"? He looks smaller.
i like..greyshirt prospect?
No brainer T...Take him as a walkon and not spend a ship since his dad is an employ of the university and kids go free.

Looks a lot like Terrence Frederick. Yates must have gotten started early. He just barely turned 35 and his son is a HS senior already...
Btw, anyone else on a macbook pro have trouble with Hudl? Every time I watch a video on there my entire screen turns blue and freezes up.
Cool..a Consol Tiger.
I don't seem to have that issue.
Won't play on my macbook air either.
Damn. That kid cld atart for baylor or isu.
Hes 5'9 max but plays atrong and fantastic instincts. Against spread teams...hes my nickel. Against lsu or bama or georgia....not his game.
shoot, put some weight on him and he can play safety
Taylor if he can break 4.7 legit tell him to drive to waco....
He's tiny. I like the kid. He cna play ball somewhere but walking on does nothing for him. This isn't a fb, te, punter, safety, ilb position. This is cb. We spend lots of ships on cb's.
He's not going to crack our 3 deep. If he just wants to go to school for free under Daddy's situation and play football, but he can go somewhere and play.
I don't think he's got enough size/speed to play for Iowa St in his zone. They like bigger guys that can tackle (they aren't recruiting speed).
Rice would be a good spot if he wanted to play close.

Univ of houston im sure knows about him. Another good spot. I want him to find a spot because he plays the game very well.
But walkon here first.
How tiny is he? He's listed at 5'10", if he's close to that or if he is still growing then he'll be big enough and would just need to put on some size to play safety. With how thin we are at that position, it certainly isn't a bad idea to try him out there. If nothing else, his dad being coach pretty much guarantees that he'll be a smart kid that makes the right decisions during any given play.
His dad being a university employee means he doesn't pay tuition, right? So he could be a preferred walk on and we wouldn't have to use a scholly if he wanted to play here. That would be great. He looks pretty good and we could use as much help in the secondary as possible!
Good walk ons to play scout team are highly underrated. They're who your team goes up against every day
definitely a good player. Shermanager is right about the scout teams especially in the sec. you have to be primed for combat every week in the sec. scout teams prepare you for that and if you are good enough you graduate to varsity.
Future 12th man
Taylor - what ever happened to this kid? I can't find it online. Is he coming to A&M as a walk on or preferred walk on? Seems like he could be really solid in that role and may also help keep Yates around for a few more years before he gets a job as the solo DC or a head coach somewhere.
Have the rules changed for tuition in the past 15 years? My dad worked at A&M and I did not get free tuition. I seriously doubt things have changed during that time.
"who is your daddy and what does he do"
I think coaches' kids get free tuition. At least I know Sherman's son did, but for all I know that may have been in his contract.
If we can take him without spending a scholarship, by all means.
Plays with tenacity, good instincts - he could be a special teams game changer.
