Article on Newman's verbal. His numbers are crazy.

We have interest in OL Max Potokar from Moeller. 6'6' 315. Has only one offer from Davidson that I can tell but lots of interest from a number of schools. Big strong kid but could use a little improvement on his agility/footwork and pad level.

Love Kerstens; top notch program too. Pretty quick and agile. Apparent SHD. Could see him on D. Surprised he has only the offer from Navy.

Potokar plays at St. Edwards, a small school that had a 14-1 record this year, including a win over Moeller 49-17. Potential appears to be there, and probably well coached ... of course great size too. Quickness? Can't believe he does not have more offers.

We have interest in LB Joe Donald of Mountain Brook High in Birmingham Ala. 6'3" 210. All state. Love his film; Classic Wofford ILB. Reminds me of Niam.

Donald is top notch student and player. Offers from Air Force and Yale. Came back from leg injury his junior year.

Rashad Byrd is an outstanding and versatile talent as well. Could excel at several positions on offense and defense. Would make a great SHD.

Have high hopes for Newman. Here is the Keenan Reynolds remarkable story; perhaps Newman could do the same.

Saw Rashad Byrd play in person. The kid is worth the price of admissions. If we could land this kid he would be an instant boost in the Woco talent pool. Very athletic and could be an asset on both sides of the ball. Must have in this class if he is interested

Keenan Reynolds is playing a super game today against Pitt. His judgment and quickness are remarkable. Solid passer too. Navy is passing it enough to keep those big Pitt dudes off balance. He truly maximizes the talent and effort of all of his teammates. And his judgment and quickness are enabling Navy RB's to get to the outside and down the sideline, something we have needed to do better. Hopefully Newman and/or other QB recruit we get can do the same for us.

In HS Keenan's offers were us, UT-Martin, Air Force and Navy. After his freshman year at Navy he thought seriously about transferring to us, according to an article I saw.

There are several of our prospects - unsigned that is - that are impressive. without going back through all of the posts I will try to remember the ones that stick out. Eron Carter and Rashad Byrd are two. I know there is at least one other and probably more. If we could land those kind of players we could be in great shape. So far we are in good shape but they would push us even higher. And I also like Donald. He is not flashy but definitely a SHD.

Reynolds finishes his career with more career td's than anyone, and more rushing yards than any QB, in NCAA history. Hats off.

And we are left to wonder: What if he had been a Terrier?
