    Sometimes I get lucky, and really find a Stud player.

    good find, White Power. kid could be Peyton Hillis' little brother but with a bit more speed. on the rare occasion whereheactuallyhasa seam to hit, he is gone. unfortunately for him, his teammates apparently are afraid of blocking which is why those seams are so rare. of course, that makes his stats all the more impressive. i wonder what his yards-after-contact numbers are ... they gotta be staggering.


    i've included a highlight vid below.

    I hope he does not make the mistake that "Hunter Furr" made by going to a school that is outright hostile to White players. Unfortunately, there's a good chance he will when you look at his list of schools:

    "I like TCU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, and UL. I am going to camp at TCU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, UL, and I also got invited to attend an All Madden Camp in Florida as well." [​IMG]

    This kid is pretty good. Whoever mentioned his teammates cant block is correct. I dont know about any SEC schools offering. I think because he really has a large build coaches are going to try and convert him. I think Kentucky would be a great fit as they seem to be recruiting white athletes again in wr Bryan Adams, cb Dayeln Hall and wr prospect Josh Smith. And Hunter Furr should at least be returning kicks with his speed.

    I think one of the problems I see is he is getting hand offs from the fullback position. Hes basically a bowling ball with great speed though. Good find white power.

    Hes not lined up as a fullback, hes lined up as tailback in shotgun formation which can be harder for a lot of backs to run out of since they aren't running downhill when they take the handoff but he doesn't seem to have much of a problem with that. They run the zone read quite a bit, the whole point is to leave a defender unblocked and create double teams but the line seems pretty sloppy and not effective.

    His best bet is TCU, they gave Ryan Christian a decent role as a rb/wr, he was 5'11 185 pounds with average speed, he got around 90 carries for two 2 seasons straight not too long ago. This kid is already bigger with elite speed.

    The thing that bothers me about players like Cunningham is that if he were even a quarter black he would have at least 10 offers by now. The fact that he dosen't dosen't sit well with me because of all the white running backs that we have found for this year to mee he seems to me by far the most gifted as far as speed , power vision, and being able to take a pounding. This kid is Gerhart except fsster, and more compact. I would not be suprised if he gets some upcoming offers soon however the fact he dose not have any yet is a tragedy that need to be remedied. I think that we need to make a bigger deal out of how white players are being treated by their stupid black player loving coaches. Anyone know how we can get the word out about this player as Bum Phillips said some years ago "It's time to kick the door down" before his Houston Oilers beat the Pittsbugh Steelers on MNF.

    I think because hes kind of thick and very strong most coaches are going to use him as a fullback and ignore his 4.3 speed. You make a great point white power that we seem to have so many of our guys dominating combines where all these black players with less measurables get taken. It makes no sense. Watch Brian Regan out of Cherry Hill , New Jersey. He has dominated in every combine and still has no offers.<div>I think certain schools like Oklahoma and Texas will never recruit whites even if they ran a 3.9 forty. Sam McGuffie has one of the highest SPARQ ratings ever and still didint get offers from Texas or Oklahoma. Its just insane.</div>

    Their is hope because of players like Woodhead, and Hillis , and even Gerhart. I think because of this bad economy that it may very well help more whites get recruited because blacks have a harder time making ends meet. So they move around alot, and some are forced into a life of crime where as before they could find jobs. We will take any advantage that we can get regardless of who gets hurt in the process. It is time for WHITES to rise up, and demand equality on the grid iron.Edited by: White Power

    Hes 5'8 and 200 pounds, he doesn't have much room to bulk up to fullback.

    Unfortunately so many whites are programmed by the liberal media that inequality only applies to anyone but whites. Yeah theres racism and 400 years of slavery but I could have sworn we are on a level playing field. You would think that the blacks that dont make it to the NFl would fall back on their degree but it is so rare and everyone knows it. I dont think whites are ever going to stand up for themselves in a large proportion. Look at West Virginia cornerback Brian King. He moves to safety his senior year and his answer to a reporter to the move was " Cmon a white corner in the NFl "? I cant believe so many people are so brainwashed. Only the Woodheads and Gerharts are going to change this. You are rite but I am not optimistic for the future.

    You are right Snow but he is VERY strong and built like a bull. This kid is good enough to start on most reams as a freshman.

    yeah he is but there is no way they could convert him to fullback at 5'8 (some places have him at 5'7 and a few quarters). He is built like Maurice Jones-Drew who looks like a bowling ball at 208. The worst they could do is slot receiver. Hes big enough to start as a freshman since he weighs more than most guys his height, but Id rather him get phased into the offense. Guys that start and get a full load as a freshman usually wear down by its time to go pro.

    Cunningham in a scout article was told by Houston Nutt of Ole Miss he got a place on the team, as his " ultimate Fullback ". Wow a 5'8" fullback with 4.3 speed and great balance and moves. Im just amazed some of these older coaches are so stuck in their ways. And the article mentions that Cunningham was begging one coach just to give him a shot even if he has to walk on. God its sickening. Whats it going to take a white rb with 3.2 forty speed. Nahh whites with 3.2 forty speed make better strong safeties. :crazy:

    WOW! This almost prompts me to want to make a phone call! What is Houston Dale Nutt's major malfunction?? He saw first-hand what Hillis & Hester could do when given the opportunity in 07'!

    Looking at recruiting list... He probably assumed "Mitchell Cunningham" was black judging from his name...looking for a replacement for Brandon Bolden; then when he realized he was melanin deficient...an available Fullback scholarship magically opened up!

    Mitchell is a Cajun!

    Just wanted to update everyone that was on Mitchell's side throughout all this. I learned so much from all of this, things that I had no clue existed! He has had to watch boys that he out played through out the year get full rides and I hate that for him. He did not get a D1 offer other than walk on at ULL, OLE MISS and MSU. Henderson State in Ar did offer a full ride as well as many, many JUCO's. He has made the choice and decided to go to Louisiana Lafayette..so we are now Ragin Cajuns! He has worked so hard and I do feel that he was cheated in this process but you take what you are dealt and that is just what he has done. It will be great when he gets down there and everyone see's what he can do.

    The best choice he could have made out of the 3. Look forward to seeing him play. In a fair world he would have a scholarship at a big time school like LSU or Ole Miss. What happened with ULL though? I thought they were going to offer him for sure? From what I heard they loved the idea of him playing for them. I know some of the older fans (some alumni) didn't like the idea and thought that he didn't deserve one since "no one else has offered him a scholarship" and "not having stars by his name."
