I've been watching some of Tabuyo's film and can't figure out why his ranking is so low. Can someone give me insight on this?
I know they're called HIGHlights for a reason, but his speed is killer and is very versatile. I figured his hands may be subpar, but they look great to me. Anyway, thanks ahead of time for any responses.
Coming off knee injury is why they say he is
No one really goes to Hawaii to watch an entire game or multiple games is another reason. There aren't a lot of camps that test these kids is a reason. I believe Byron spotted this youngster from some film he was watching and he got the recruiting ball rolling on him. He was on no radar when we began pursuing him to any degree.
The under the radar aspect is BS because he was incontention for Hawaii's number 1 prospect ahead of the Savage and the DT before his injury.
It really is just his injury and the lack of an analyst TE reevaluate him.
With his speed, he should be in contention right away for a return spot, and who knows, maybe he's good enough to land a slot spot next to Kennedy.
I'm thinking redshirt. Good player though.
I can't wait to see the use of these WRs we have coming in. If they can block a lick, I want to see a size reversal situation by having Seas-Jones and Clear in slots and speed outside to enhance run blocking. LBs would be on slots but no match for our "size" and the middle would be loosened up as you would need to bring a S down and a OLB out to combat the size discrepancy. How about a 6'2", 210lb WR in the slot on a SS or LB. The name of the game is to cfreate mismatches, and some of the WR combos are going to be nightmares for DCs. How about Tabuyo's speed against the "small" Bama CB that covered Evans and Evans inside along with Clear, Seals-Jones, JaQuay, and Parker. The way Sumlin is building the O, as long as we keep a stellar O-Line, we will be nearly impossible with the JFF run threat.
A list of guys that he is more ready to play than.
I didn't necessarily say better than. But he is a more complete receiver at this point and should play next year given the openings at slot.
USMC- Breaking shit since 1775
Thanks guys, good stuff.
I think he'll definitely compete to start. He's not only blazing fast but has incredible quickness and can block too. I think he may even turn out to be better than Quiv (gasp).
I'm interested to see how many more "diamonds in the rough" we get in the future. Do we still take some of these guys or the more nationally known, highly ranked players, now that we will be at the top of recruiting for years to come? Would we still be talking to Tabuyo now if he hadn't already committed? Stuff to ponder.
I believe we would. When our coaches did thier eval on this kid they went all out to get him. Says alot about what they think of him
