Negadawgs will hate because they’re both only rated as “3-stars” but these kids were offered early so obviously the coaches have them as high priorities.
Anthony Jones: HUGE pickup! Huge! Just getting one OLB last class was not ideal. We need two OLB’s in every class because having an elite pass rush and depth to rotate guys in and out is everything. Jones is a beast. He has the size, has the twitch, and has the aggression. This is why I laugh at these star rankings. I can honestly say that talent wise, there isn’t a noticeable difference between Jones and Savell Smalls. Their Sophomore film looks so similar. Savell played some TE/WR in high school too. Man, Coach K is killing it with these way underrated 3-star kids. First Tryon and ZTF, now Heims and Jones.
Sir Mells: UW is not beating anybody without a stud NT like this who can stop the run. This kid is built like a refrigerator. He’s going to be a tank in the middle. Not a sexy pickup. But a good one. Nice to see Ikaika can recruit D-lineman who aren’t Poly.
I fucking love the early momentum being built in Nevada right now. Nevada has a surprising amount of talent in the 2022 class and it’s ripe for the picking. We got the Liberty boys. Now let’s get the Bishop Gormon boys and then maybe shock the world with that ELITE RB Jovantae Barnes. Nobody will be bitching about “RUN THE DAMN BALL” if it helps UW get that kid.
