Great height and lanky kinda reminds me of Darvin Adams.
Wasn't Adams a 3 star like this kid when we first recruited him?
Seems like Malzahn is targeting 3 stars who can be coached to greatness rather than going for prima dona 4 and 5 stars like we have in the past and seemed to have bit us in the butt.

Don't kid yourself. Getting 4 and 5 star talent is still key and not every recruit that falls in that category is a problem.
What bit us in the butt was a coaching staff that didn't have control or the wherewithal to run a disciplined program.
Being rated a 3-star doesn't magically make them hard working, disciplined, and humble. Nor does it mean they can be coached to greatness. Some 3 stars will never be anything more than 3 star talent.
That said, this kid has a nice looking skill set and worth the gamble as a development project. You can't teach the intangibles he has at that size.

This years heisman winner was a 3 star. So were Revis, Jake Long, Santonio Holmes, Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford. Ratings aren't everything.
