Re: New 2013 Class updated heights and weights
Yeah, it's nothing new to see measurables blown up on Rivals. Unless a player attended a combine, those heights and weights come either from the recruit or his coach, and both have a reason to exaggerate. A couple of thoughts from me:

Lanning - Wow, 235! That's one big QB for a FR.
Wimberly - He looked tiny in the Spring Game, so that doesn't surprise me. They'll have to be creative with him to keep him from getting hurt.
Brown - Decent size for a HS RB.
Bibbs - Right on target.
Leslie - Seems like they like to have their TEs at 245-250. He'll easily get there after a RS year.
Harris/Ajumobi - Both lost an inch and some weight, but they'll be fine.
Homa - Hopefully that's good weight. Seems like a hard worker, so I'm betting it is. Future OG.
Glenn - Right on track to be 300 after a RS.
Campos - No issues at all. He'll need a couple years, but he'll get there.
Severs - Farnioks replacement IMO. He's got 2 years to get up to at least 285. Lots of work ahead of him.
Curtis - I'm torn whether he's a OG or OT. Hwt/weight-wise, he's going to be just fine after a RS.
Tribune - Good.
Syrie - 5'9 is tough for a Safety, but Sims did it. Hope Syrie can too.
Williams - I'm betting he's the same because he's the only player in this class not yet in the ISU Directory. He needs to make grades.
Cotton-Moya - Good size. No issues with the numbers.
Mills - Thought he was destined for NB. At 5'10, I start to wonder whether he's big enough.
Madison - If he really is going to DE, he's got a lot of work to do.
Webster - No issues.
Meeks - Like Lanning, that's a big kid. I do wonder whether he's eventually destined for DE.
Garcia - That's some size! I hope he's able to stay on the DL and not move to OL, because we already have a lot of OGs in this class.
Trent - After a RS, he's going to be 285, which is good for a RSFR.
Coe - I don't think that there's any way he plays DE other than short yardage. DT all the way.
Waggoner - Not upset or surprised. He's going to be 245 by next year at this time, which may not be perfect size, but close enough.
