He really sounds like a mulit-level winner. Someone we would love to have on our roster not just because he is a top-rated player and a play-maker, but he sounds like a really sharp guy; the type of guy you want your kids modeling themselves after. It'll be interesting to see how his recruiting goes at other schools and I think he should do a paper or something on his experiences. Would be interesting to see what he has to say and how he analyzes the different visits and offers.


Wow, 31 offers; we're probably in his top 30***

If he chooses us, I guess we will have to over sign to get him. Seems he wants to play the hat trick game on signing day.

To each his own. I like how some recruits go ahead and commit quietly but I also don't blame kids that want the production - after all, how many times in our life will any of us have the opportunity in front of the camera (for a good reason!)?


I'm glad to hear...***

Sign with us. Start. And he will have 100's

of opportunities to be on camera.


This article is a huge TEASE

i thought dgreen committed today!!!

The guy could move.


Cross cut

I've got a feeling that with our limited scholorships and having already gotten Wayne's commit that Tyshon Dye will pull the trigger and not wait till fall...afraid that Derrick might commit ahead of him...either way, they both won't come.


Sorry, but that highlight reel isn't very impressive.

He looks like a strong kid with some speed, but nothing overwhelming to be #1 RB.

But others know this stuff more than I do, so I'll shut up now.


I thought the same thing........


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 2:09 PM
 

I think his size and speed may be creating a lot of buzz for him. IMO, from watching his and then Dye's video, it looks like Dye is the better RB.


Here is Dye, you be the judge

We need the one that doesn't fumble the ball!!!

Posted: Jun 22, 2012 2:17 PM
 

anybody can tote the rock for decent carries, but it is the one that takes the pounding, and protects the football that we need to go after. Just my opinion!


Re: Here is Dye, you be the judge


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 4:39 PM
 

Reminds me of Merriwether in that he seems to like lowering his head and hitting someone at the end of the run, and a few of those stop jukes were Spiller-esque. Not a bad combo.


Re: Here is Dye, you be the judge


Posted: Jun 23, 2012 10:54 PM
 

F*ck it, I'm greedy, let's get both of them. Seriously, these two would be a perfect compliment to one another. One guy's a between-the-tackles/North-South type of guy and the other one is more about getting into space and then making people miss.

Not only would both of these guys thrive in The Chad's offense, but they could do it simultaneously.


Re: who is the db that ran him down when it first started?


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 6:15 PM
 

Never saw him break a tackle. Also dropped hard many times on the 2. Not overly impressed


He's so well spoken.***

That video is impressive. Reminds me of Marcus Lattimore.

I like the way he looks to inflict pain upon the opponent. That's a mentality we've been missing in a RB for quite awhile.


MAN!!

After DT Mantraviois Adams, this kid (Green) is
next on my wish list.
#21


Possible Psychology major makes a Freudian Slip!?!?!?

“Coach Elliott is my position coach, and we talk about everything, not just football.”

Really Coach Elliott is "your" position coach!?!?

Sounds like a Freudian slip to me!!! :)

Dye and Green


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 2:46 PM
 

Do we take both if they want to come? If one commits will the other pull a gurley and come or will he go elsewhere for less competition?


Can we afford to take 3 RB's in this class, with such


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 2:55 PM
 

limited numbers?

AND we have two highly rated RB's already committed for 2014.

I can't see taking 3 this year.


YES! Original # for this class was tighter than it is now. L


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 3:07 PM
 

Losing Bellamy, Josh Brown & Marty Williams will give more options.


Re: YES! Original # for this class was tighter than it is now. L

But the question is can we afford to use up so may scholarships on RBs. if we take 3 this year, in 2014 we will have Howard, Brooks, Gallman, Dye, Green, Cook, Oglesby. That is 7 RBs, several of which were highly rated and will want to be starting.


Hopefully...its GREEN.***

I agree with Dye's video being slightly more impressive than Green's but perhaps the competition is a little stiffer in Green's area. Just look at the DB that chased him down in the first vid...pretty quick for a RB that can run a 4.37


I think Dye is a little shiftier where Green.....


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 3:01 PM
 

is the type of back that is going to pound and pound and pound until the defense wears out and then bust open the big one. I will be glad to have either one. It will also be easier to tell which is better when they get in some of these all star type events where they are playing against relatively the same competition


We have had enough shifty stile agility backs lately.


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 3:34 PM
 

I miss the ground and pound big backs like Merriwether and Chad Jasmin. I hate it for Buice, but I think Green will be a better style back. Especially with the others that we have coming in that have more agility. Pistol formations have some duel back setups!


Yeah I thought of that too.

[1]
Posted: Jun 22, 2012 4:31 PM
 

Green as the every down back and then Brooks, Hot Rod, Cooke ,Gallman to provide the change of pace.


I just realized I spelled "style" with an "i" in my post

I've been hanging out on TNET too much!! And reading too many of Mickey's blogs!


VERY happy to see Derrick Green's face back up on


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 3:11 PM
 

front page - even if it's nothing definite. Want him to see he's needed.


Re: VERY happy to see Derrick Green's face back up on


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 3:46 PM
 

He reminds me alot of Jamie Harper.


I was thinking Trent Richardson


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 3:51 PM
 

;)


Re: I was thinking Trent Richardson

I was thinking Raymond Priester. Well, hoping Raymond Priester...Gotta get/develop some hogs to open the holes first.


We don't need a 230 lb back tap dancing when needing to hit


Posted: Jun 23, 2012 10:13 AM
 

The hole. Harper would do that and the look for someone to run into if he got into open field.


Please leave photo up all weekend***

Is that a tiger stripe in his hair?***

Posted: Jun 22, 2012 4:42 PM
 




Would "experts" give us any credit by signing two #1's??


Posted: Jun 22, 2012 6:37 PM
 

I sure many schools have signed multiple number ones, but at such important positions is impressive. I know people tend to think in terms of QB mostly, but DE & RB work just fine for me.

That Orange Stripe
