I enjoyed watching his highlights from junior year.  His new address may be:  End Zone, Richardson Stadium, Charlotte, NC  28223.  Actually, watch the end of the highlights to appreciate his speed on defense.  Tough kid---Golden Gloves runner up and excels in track.

Awesome that he will get to coach his son in college.  I guess it would depend on where he plays.  Could be a great story.

He is projected as a slot receiver.  At a recent recruiting evaluation he was the fastest wide receiver there.

That makes it appear as if Coach Mullen is planning on being around for awhile. That's not a bad thing.

I guess it's all a matter of opinion, but it would be hard to argue that a team with 3 national championship and a win in the Big House is not legit unless you are arguing with an idiot.

3 fcs national championships and one win like 10 years ago does not make them legit.

Rivals says he had interest from App, ECU, and Ball St.  Offers from Columbia and Gardner-Webb.

Big Factor in recruiting for many of prospects has been OL Coach Phil Ratliff. Players always speak very highly of all the coaches but many specifically praise him. Players also love the facilities and the general Charlotte area.

Charlotte has a lot of things going for them and will be able to continue to improve the recruiting classes. They have also been building connections and pipelines at very important schools around the area.

i wasen't. no one cares about fcs national championships in the national landscape and the win over michigan was a long time ago. at the end of the day, they are a sun belt teams picked to finish near the bottom of their league. hardly what i would call legit.

any player with multiple FBS offers I consider legit.


I still see us recruiting guys that have mostly FCS offers.


If you don't think App is legit, then you certainly cannot consider us a legit offer for any recruit either.

i don't consider us legit on the level of an sec school yet but i consider us legit because of what we have to offer a player; big city, top notch facilities, better conference than what app is in, potential for a better conference once realignment occurs. I am concerned that we are recruiting a lot more than i would like against the likes of elon, furman, schools like that. not going to win in cusa with those level players. i do trust the coaching staff however so i am not going to worry yet.

I don't really get the App hate in the first place, but come on.  I would love to be able to do some of what they have.  3 Championships is solid as hell- in any classification

we haven't even proved ourselves on the FCS level. Like it or not but App is much more legit than we are at this moment in time. That likely will not last longer than the end of this coming season but still.

App State has a wonderful football program and was certainly a huge player at the FCS level. That said, it means very little at the FBS level. Marshall and WKU had great success at the FCS level and both have had their share of struggles in FBS.




For anyone who doesn't understand the App hate, you should go back and read some of the threads on AGS when this whole football process started.

Marshall was a top 25 team when they moved to FBS. They had the most successful FCS to FBS transition ever.


They fell off because they got put on probation and lost scholarships.


WKU has done pretty well. They've only been FBS for four seasons. They have two losing seasons and two 7 win seasons. That's a pretty solid start.


I disagree that what App did means very little. They were already getting 3 star guys at the FCS level and now some of those guys that used to opt for G5 level programs instead of FCS may choose App.

Very true.  I've seen several players praising Coach Ratliff on social media and in interviews.  It almost gets me worried that his alma mater will come calling with an "offer he can't refuse."


We are laying a good foundation in Charlotte, Georgia, and WV so hopefully those relationships will continue to grow.


Side note:  Can we take the Crap State talk somewhere else please?
