Ok first of all, in April, my birdies generally aren’t going to be dogging too many guys. Too early. They/we don’t know enough yet. But I’ve been working the phones today trying to get information on yesterday’s scrimmage. Here are some interesting nuggets I’ve gotten on the spring as a whole. — “Breece Hall is special.” ... --- With that, Kene has really had a great spring too. My guess is that Kene will start the season at RB but like David as a freshman, Breece will work his way into getting significant reps early and often. Kene isn't gonna be standing on the sideline much though. They love him and he's finally blossoming post the Achilles injury. — On the O-Line, apparently Good-Jones looks a lot better than he ever has in the Campbell Era. Newell continues to be a staff favorite. They think he will be very, very good. — Purdy, Milton and Rose were referred to as “elite” by one source. — From what I’ve gathered, Scates and Shaw have had the type of springs that the staff had hoped for, which will be big in trying to fill the shoes of Hakeem Butler. The 180 turnaround by Scates from last August until now is really quite incredible. — Defensive line … sounds like Josh Bailey is finally starting to make his presence felt. Was told that he and Tucker Robertson will be make a push to play this season. — “Will McDonald is a special, true freak.” — A lot of enthusiasm about the longterm potential of young corners Anthony Johnson and Datrone Young. The Rice grad transfer insurance policy feels like a big deal to most in the program. I’ll keep digging.
