New commitment this morning: Millard "Nook" Bradford, a 5'10" 180 lb safety originally from San Antonio O'Connor who played a prep season at Fork Union Military Academy this fall.  He'll be enrolled in the spring.

 

Also - Daimarqua Foster and Blair Conwright were both named finalists for this year's Mr. Texas Football award.  

 

Check out Foster and Conwright's stats:  "Conwright ended the season with 105 catches for 1,540 yards with 25 touchdowns. Foster finished the season with 2,800 rushing yards and 44 touchdowns."

 

The coaches wanted Bradford last year but he wasn't qualified academically.  He played both ways for much of his career much like Derrick Kindred.

We got a commit from Mikel Barkley, WR from Palomar Colege.  He only played one year of JUCO ball so he has 3 yrs of eligibility left.

He’s a speedster with 10.7 100M speed and had an offer from Utah.  He was under the radar because he didn’t play at a high school that threw the ball a lot but they did wn state in the 4x100 relay.  He is a full qualifier and can enroll in January.

Barkley looks like a good pickup who can make teams pay a price if they double team Reagor.

 

But what we really need are junior college linebackers and defensive ends.

I think we will get Parker Workman at DE.  However, Victor Viramontes, the JUCO LB from California that seemed to be in the bag for TCU, has apparently had a change of heart and will go to UNLV instead.  Jeremy Clark of HFB just put in a crystal ball for UNLV this a.m.  Right now, all we have at LB is Wallow, Ben Wilson, Jacoby Simpson and the oft injured Montrel Wilson.  If we don't get a JUCO, they're going to have to pick up a grad transfer or something.

And mutliple crystal balls now have Steven Parker to Kansas, after the Jayhawks hired the position coach who'd secured his commitment at Tech.

 

Just reading the tea leaves from Jeremy Clark's posts on HFB, I think we have a silent commit from a DE committed to a P-5 school.  So losing out on Parker may not be that big a deal.  Once he committed to Tech, TCU completely quit recruiting him because of his ties to Emmett Jones and because he grew up in Lubbock and has tons of family there.  TCU just didn't think it was worth spending time and resources on Parker under those circumstances.  He truly was that rare kid whose dream school growing up was Tech.
