    WR Cason Grant transfer from Miss. State to Oklahoma, I don’t expect him to ever see the field there.

    Boston College WR Christian McStravick is in the transfer portal now, he had 7 scholarship offers coming out of high school but never recorded a catch in his 4 years at BC.

    RB Josh Foley transfers in-state from New Mexico State to New Mexico.

    LB Eddie Hahn headed to Monmouth.

    FB Joe Ludwig going from Iowa to Utah.



    Also in regards to the transfer list above, I believe John Petrishen is transferring to Pitt from Penn State instead of the other way around.

    I messaged Grant and told him it was a bad decision unless he planned on growing 5 inches to play tight end lol. He had a much better chance at Miss St. Leach has started over a dozen White receivers and they were all around his size.

    Clemson DE Logan Rudolph is forgoing his last 2 years of eligibility to move to Hollywood and pursue an acting career after he graduates in May. I thought I had heard it all until this one, best of luck to Logan. Would be cool to see him in some future movies.

    Wow kind of a random decision for the Younger Rudolph. I'm assuming he's already been contacted about acting and has some work lined up? Hopefully they don't hold Mason's "racial slur" against him.

    Nice at least someone tells him! Not really sure why any White Athlete would commit to Oklahoma or school's of the like. Career suicide. Some guy's I think just have supreme confidence in themselves without realizing cards are stacked against them. The Old "work hard and you'll be noticed" "best players play"attitude. Not a bad attitude to have, just doesn't shake out that way nowadays.

    In the 1980's, Northern Colorado was know for having an excellent low brass musical program. It was also supposedly a beautiful campus.

    Wow Dox Aitken is a name I’m very familiar with! I have actually watched him play lacrosse in person twice since I’m a big lacrosse fan. He was a BEAST at Virginia and was their best player last year when they won they won the national championship. I’m excited to see how his football season goes, he was a football stud back in high school.

    Maryland lacrosse player Jared Bernhardt has also announced his intentions to play football in 2020 as well.

    Good work gentleman. Better late than never. You never know. DE Patrick Kerney played a couple of season of lacrosse at Virginia and turned out to be a star in the NFL. And Chris Hogan we know about him.

    I noticed both Bernhardt and Aitken are noted for their athleticism and speed.

    Yes both of them are superb athletes who have accomplished a lot on the lacrosse field. Both are 3 time all-Americans. Bernhardt is interesting because he played option QB in high school so it remains to be seen what position he will play, he also hasn’t made a decision yet on where he will play. If you look through the bios of lacrosse rosters you will notice usually over half of the players were great football players in high school. But they are mostly small white guys so they choose the lacrosse route, and up north they get more lacrosse exposure than football exposure.

    Ohio State has moved highly ranked LB/DE Cade Stover to TE. He played RB in high school and had nearly 1500 rushing yards his senior year. Hopefully he can develop into a weapon, Ohio State hasn’t had a great tight end in a while.

    BYU is moving LB/S Zayne Anderson to CORNERBACK for his final season. He’s a big athletic guy, I hope he can stay healthy and make an impact at CB.

    Two sides of a coin.

    Ohio State didn't have great production at TE last season but it wasn't for lack of talent. Senior Luke Farrell will likely get drafted and junior Jeremy Ruckert is seen as a diamond and some speculate if he progresses he has first round talent. He certainly looks the part. The feeling is the offense will feature the tight ends more this season. And if Ruckert has a productive season look for him to declare for the draft.

    I do not like to see teams move white defensive players to offense. It is a pet peeve of mine. Once a player is slotted as a defensive player out of high school that is where I want to see him. That said I hope it works out for Stover.

    On the other hand I have no problem with a white linebacker being moved to the defensive back field. Cornerback would be great for Anderson but I would have to see it to believe it. Maybe safety?

    Anderson was discussed before the season as having NFL talent but injuries ( see article above) killed his 2019 season. Anderson will have to have an injury free season to keep the NFL interested because his injury history will keep the NFL away. So he needs to show them that his injury issues are behind him.

    But back to tight ends. The thought is the 2021 class will be an upgrade over this year's group. Two names that are getting a lot of buzz are Penn State's Pat Freiermuth and Alabama's Major Tennison. I am really impressed with both of them. They exhibit front line talent.

    Just another reason to hate Ohio St and their latest caste stooge coach Ryan Day.

    Maybe this is better for Stover, OSU is having plenty good players, even white D-line players, from 2020/2021 class they are recruiting some white kids with 4/5 stars.
    OSU doesn't have too much white TE, maybe this is his chance.

    Brian Hartline seems doing well there, star skill position (high school) white kids like Stellato and Shipley all put OSU/CLEMSON as their final cut.

    San Jose State WR Bailey Gaither who we all are familiar with has been granted a 6th year of eligility and will be returning this fall. This is huge news as he may be our most important senior in 2020. With another 800+ yard season he could be invited to the 2021 combine where he would almost certainly run a blazing fast 40 yard dash time. Lets hope this deep threat can remain healthy and have another big year!

    I read this as good news for Gaither too seeing that he was on nobody's radar for this draft. It will give him another full season to boost his stock.

    Following up on the Gaither news Ohio State WR/PR DJ Saunders who missed last year to a knee injury is awaiting news if he too qualifies for a sixth year of eligibility. Red raider wrote about him last year. His head coach Ryan Day is optimistic he will receive it and we should know sometime this month. While not a starter a lot was expected of DJ in 2019 so if he is granted another year expect him to make some noise.

    His teammate senior LB Pete Werner is probably the most versatile LB in the entire 2021 draft. Nice article below on one of my favorite college football players.

    https://lettermenrow.com/ohio-state...ckeyes-football-linebacker-spring-film-study/

    Another player recovering from an injury is Utah's WR/KR/PR Britian Covey. He hobbled around last season and wasn't himself after tearing his ACL late in 2018 but word is now he is finally back up to full strength. When healthy his quickness is off the charts.

    Meanwhile small school UT-Chattanooga senior WR Bryce Nunnelly ( Twentytwo and I have been on his case for over two years now) is coming off a down year but that shouldn't detract from his talent. Naturally the draft gurus pretend he doesn't exist but the hope here is he has a great senior season and starts to get noticed. See nice piece on him below.

    Screenshot_20200406-213334.png Leach apparently has offended black players by posting this, one is transferring. Apparently a noose makes it racist? Don't expect him to give White players a chance any time soon, probably gonna bend over backwards to show he's "not racist". He deleted the tweet and apologized.

    Yes throughout history Noose's were only used for Black's, no one else. I wasn't expecting him to do **** for our cause at Mississippi State anyways, SEC is a lost cause.

    *I typed in Lynchings on Google and one of the first articles was from Washington Post reads like this: Over 4,000 Lynched in US, and Trump isn't one of them. Imagine the manufactured outrage if a "reputable" paper said the same about Leftists wet dream Obama?
