    Thaddeus LaGrone decommits from Baylor, ISU on the table

    Thaddeus LaGrone drops Baylor - On The Trail Blog - ESPN

    ESPN Insider link which I don't have but the free part says the following.

    High two-star safety / outside linebacker Thaddeus LaGrone (Allen, Texas), a 6-foot-2, 195-pound senior, has decommitted from Baylor, according to multiple sources.

    Iowa State, Michigan State, Navy and Nevada are his other scholarship offers. Missouri, Oklahoma State, Iowa, Kansas State and TCU could also join the mix.

    LaGrone, who previously attended Boyd High School (McKinney, Texas), originally gave Baylor his pledge in June. He's posted a 4.82 40-yard dash, 4.34 20-yard shuttle and 34.4-inch vertical on the combine circuit.

    Baylor's Class of 2012 now stands at 18.


    Iowa State is the only other Big 12 school that put out an offer. Though I could see TCU snatch him up as they will be Big 12 next year.

    Rivals has him listed with a 4.5 forty time, which sounds much better.

    Sign me up. He would be perfect at weakside LB for us.

    Iowa is only going to offer him after Iowa State offered him because they needed senior film on him. The other BCS schools will offer him only after Iowa offers him because when Iowa offers, other schools know when the kid is good enough...

    A 4.82 40 is what you look for in DL. Must be wrong. Usually the 40 times are severely understated.....

    Yeah, the 4.82 seems like a bad time to me. Rivals has 4.5, so I'm guessing that might be closer.

    There is a big difference between 4.82 and 4.5.....like 60 pounds of more luggage....

    My guess would be junior year 40 time vs senior year 40 time

    He lived in Ames until 8th grade, when he moved down to texas. So there is a Ames connection for sure

    From Scout.com:

    Good sized safety, if he grows more he could be an ideal outside linebacker for pass coverage situations. Hits with purpose and viciousness. He squares up and drops the ball carrier or receiver, usually getting a very solid hit. Great timing on passing situations and for knocking the ball down.


    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."
    -- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
