What's up Raider Nation!
The office ended last night, a sad moment for me. I remember when it first got started with Jim pulling pranks on Dwight, falling in love and stealing Pam, working his way up to Co-Manager and eventually starting Athlead (weather he stays in Scranton or not, I won't tell for those who haven't watched it yet that might be planning too). Also his good looks too..... but I don't go that way. I hope to find my Pam someday.
Anyway Here are some updates on how the recruiting trail is going
Abu Lamin - DT (Fort Scott CC, Kansas)
Damn this boy this huge (insert Yo' Mama joke here). Looks like he was originally from Hope Mills, NC and was recruited as a DT out of there too. His 40 speed was a 4.95, which is really not bad for a Plus sized guy. He uses his explosiveness it get off the line quick and grab the RB or QB. His film (here's another one from HS) really impresses me a lot, which I can't say about everyone. He's seems like the type of guy that will give opposing defenses stains on their pants. Anyway, this guy is ready to blow up on the next level (and maybe UT's head while were at it)
Right now, Arkansas is the favorite (he like the SEC, so that kinda sucks), but he also likes Arizona State and Texas Tech (who recently got in the running)
Silvester Hayes - OLB (South Oak Cliff HS, Dallas, Texas)
Time for a guy from D-Town #representing. I don't have lot of info on this guy from film because I couldn't find any, so that kinda sucks :( . He from from Dallas though, which means that his competition must be pretty good then. I did find though that his 40 time is 4.83, which isn't exactly great if your going to be an OLB in college. It says that he can play two positions, but i don't really see him playing much time at DE only weighing in at 215lbs, might need to bulk up a bit.
Right now, we are in the lead with baylor, who has yet to offer a scholarship to him.
Josh Malin - DE (Steele HS, Schertz, Texas)
This guy has been off the radar as far as recruits go, but DAMN IS THIS BOY BIG. Now I can't find any film for him ethier, but that will change by next year. If the school Steele HS sounds familiar, that's because we already have two recruits from there (Justin Stockton and Deionte Noel) and a coach (Mike Jinks). Maybe that will make a difference in the long run. He said he was going to be the next JJ Watt at Texas Tech, and if he commits to us, I sure hope he does.
Right now, we are in the lead with Baylor and OU, whose junior days he also attended.
