    Rico Gafford '14 DB/WR

    Hearing that if he performs well at camp this Friday, he may get an offer from the coaches. Super fast.

    Re: Rico Gafford '14 DB/WR

    Heard he ran the fastest time at the Michigan camp, obviously turning a lot of coaches heads. He is a little short but if he can beef up some he could make a great special teams player/wide receiver (similiar to Jarvis West) with the type of speed he has.

    I'm all for offering Uncle Rico! He can throw a football over those mountains, and now can apparently run and catch it on the other side.

    Maybe you should watch him play first before you express such a negative attitude.

    Re: Rico Gafford '14 DB/WR

    There's a lot of slots on the roster, nothing wrong with picking up a guy that's "too short" when he brings something to the table the other guys can't. His speed would be nice.

    How fast is "super fast"? Is that like being a "super friend"?

    Or, are we talking Superman versus the Flash here...?

    Re: Rico Gafford '14 DB/WR

    Ran a 4.41 at Jr/Sr day in June. I know the guy he's been training with and he thinks he can run a 4.3 something. There's a spot on most teams for a guy who can run a 4.3.

    Re: Rico Gafford '14 DB/WR

    Take a look at the WRs in our last class, and Lazard who is committed in this class. They are taller, outside WRs. We could use a couple slot types in this class, who are usually shorter, quicker types. Not sure if this is the guy but I bet we land a couple shorter slots (well not as short as Jarvis West though).

    Apparently, though, speed isn't everything--or he would have been offered then.
