laconophilia is everywhere...
They booted 3 players off the team. Secondly, they didn't offer Knevel, there was a miscommunication.
This one just doesn't make sense to me. It seemed like this kid was interested in us early and we got the "didn't offer, won't fit our system" line from the coaches. That said, several schools that run a similar pro-style offense as us (i.e. Bama and UM) are chasing this kid...seems he "fits their systems" just fine. I might add that some of these schools have a better reputation than we do for putting lineman into the NFL...WTF? There has to be something else to this?
I think he is a pretty raw, project type with a ton of upside but also has a huge chance of being a bust. Maybe MD decided they couldn't take a chance on him with how bad the line has been/how many injuries they have experienced in the past few years and would rather take someone with a higher floor or someone who will be able to play their rs fr/so year if needed.
If he's a bust at Bama they run him off the team and use the schollie on someone else. If he's a bust at UW, not too big a deal since they have plenty of hawgs. If MSU takes on a project that doesn't work out with all the injuries and duds they've already had, it's a different story.
Rivals says we didn't offer because coaches didn't see him at camp and because of suspect competition.
