    Celine Dion?

    If he played D, the most fitting answer (notice I didn't say "best") would be -
    Nickelback. :p

    (Shudder)

    You know what I like about these WR commits?

    The thing they're known for is speed.

    Atheletic as heck. I remember he showed up to the first tryout in jean shorts LOL didn't let him forget about that the entire year. Really hard worker as well. The other teams could put three guys on him and we would still throw him a fade and he would come down with it.

    Do you recall the kid having absurdly long arms? In the video it looks like he could tie his shoes without bending over. Well maybe not that long - but long. Which of course is nice if you're a wide receiver!

    That was Tebow's nickname in some circles, I do believe.

    And strangely enough, possibly Nike titan Phil Knight's.

    I keep forgetting Roger Harriott is the coach there now. A lot of people forget he was at SU with Marrone. It was the shortest coaching stint ever. He will be a college HC soon.

    My favorite recruit in the class not named Devito. Natural athleticism with great size, haven't had many receivers of this stature over the last 2 decades. Ashton Broyld comes to mind, but he was never a natural receiver. This guy looks like he'll come in game ready, and hopefully will have Ish to learn from for a year. Nice to capitalize on some Canadian talent, both he and Tyrell Richards look like above average athletes for their positions. Got to capitalize on any locational advantages we have (though they be few).

    Keep in mind that he is going against some of the best in the country everyday in practice. Asante Samuel jr is a DB, remember the Blades family right? One of their kids plays in the secondary too. Josh is competing for his position everyday too. They have the 5th ranked WR in the nation (Grimes) and there is a slot WR committed to West Virginia. Lets just say he will be ready to compete early at Cuse.
