Not sure but he sent his LOI...this is a huge pickup for UA on paper. Hopefully it translates to the field...must be CAA and the new stadium.

I don't know much about football, but if he really had offers from Syracuse, Maryland, Purdue, Ga. Tech and Virginia, then it wasn't CAA and it wasn't the new stadium...

Re: OT: All things Purple Fam

May be Albany will give him the chance to start right away, where as those schools might have wanted to redshirt him the first year.

Whatever the reason, he is a quality addition.

Re: OT: All things Purple Fam

Here's my take. The kid is ridiculous...the video shows clearly why: athletic freak, runs down every play, is positioned well...and hits REALLY hard for his size.

My guess is that UA said he will get seriuos time right away. He is also listed as an athlete by most schools...which means at the big boy schools he may have been moved to Safety depending on the system because of his size and speed.

At Albany, he will chuck on 20 lbs...and play OLB, which will be really scary at this level if he plays to potential.

THIS...is why he is at UA. But make no mistake: NO Ford; No Stadium; No CAA...and Albany isn't sniffing this kid.

The QB from VA got a late offer from Penn State. He is really raw (1 yr starter) but has serious potential as well.

Thats stupid.. its their loss and Albany's gain. I hope that he uses that as a chip on his shoulder when the season starts.
