Just watching a few clips of him playing at Utep, his foot speed looks like an issue. Thats what I'll be watching when we get to see him play.
Thats one of the big things I see too. I just want some bigs who can move and stay out of a boot 🤷‍♂️. Is that too much to ask? 🙏

Looks like he could turn out to be a beast in the weight room, has good timing and some range.

That statement is the kiss of death for an athlete. Pretty much well known across the strength and conditioning profession that the biggest "beast" in the weight room, rarely produces on the field of play.

I doubt they try to add more muscle to him. I expect they will spend a lot more time on agility, explosion, etc.

Thomas Gipson always seemed like he would have been a beast in the weight room. Not a star, but turned out a respectable JR and SR years. I thought between his SO and JR years he did a lot of work to slim down and add muscle, and his game seemed to improve.

You may be a big purple man, but trust me when I say I know what I am talking about. Ask any strength coach who the dude is that can throw the most weight around the weight room, and then compare that to the guy that doesn't play much. They are many times (not all, there are exceptions----but MANY times) the same dude. Especially in football. They are slow, inflexible, clumsy feet, and injury prone. Not usually the sharpest tack in the drawer either.

I was starting to understand your point about those worker warriors being less mobile or flexible. But now your saying that those that workout the hardest in the weight room are low on the intelligence scale :roll: A bit of a stereotype don't you think? One can both put time in at the gym and in the books, they are not mutually exclusive.

Good God. Why does everyone get so damn butt hurt these days?!?! Can you freakin' READ. I CLEARLY said it isn't ALL of them.

And it's not a stereotype if it's true.

And I NEVER said it was mutually exclusive. Not once.

I work with athletes. Every day. Have for 30 years. Lived it as an athlete myself. I see it, I live, I experience it. I never said it was mutually exclusive.
