Unfortunately there are always going to be skill position guys from SFL that are Miami-caliber that we won't have room for. And that has never been more true than it is right now with the top guy on your board (Chaney) committed, not taking visits and outwardly advocating for a top notch 2nd back in the class.

My take: It seems that the staff has Holmes rated higher than Parrish and you're seeing that play out. Its obvious from reading that many of you (and many respected posters) either disagree with this or think we should take Parrish regardless. I don't think you can really go wrong with either but strictly going off their films, I like Holmes over Parrish.

Ultimately, its a great (and persistent) problem to be able to choose from ~5 Miami-caliber backs every single year. And, yes, we will make the wrong calls occasionally but look at the bright side... it gives the Negative Nancy's on CIS something to gripe about year in and year out.

Who is better this guy or the dude from NY? Take Holmes and put him wherever you want. At Rb, take Chaney and this guy or the NY dude.

Personally, we have the opportunity to get better than Parrish or Murphy.

Holmes is a swiss army knife so I am not even counting him as the second back.

Gah if Parrish was a 2019 kid, then he is easily the take and ends up a Cane.

No he is in 2020 class. Ugh

I can't speak for who is better but Murphy is blowing up. Has gotten offers recently from everyone. Alabama, ND, Ohio State, etc. It seems like ND has made him a priority. I noticed he has liked/posted some pro miami stuff recently too. Not sure if the new staff has contacted him to reaffirm his offer or not.

Gotta think if the staff wants him Miami leads. Definitely helps with the 3 NY freshmen coming in.

It’ll be interesting to see the direction Enos wants to go. We already have the do it all back in Chaney but does Enos want a HR speed type in Holmes, a bigger/power back in Murphy, or local production with Parrish.

Agreed. My personal opinion is that we have guys with great top end speed (lingard, Cam) but theyre more one cut and go type guys. I think we need a guy whos electric laterally with top end speed. So i think Holmes should be more of a priority.

Some of you guys are saying "just take Holmes as an athlete and dont count him as a running back" Really? How are you going to explain to a kid who said he wants to play running back that you are taking 2 other dudes at his position and him as a "we will see later" guy. Yall really think hes gonna come like that? come on.

Facts. If you sign Chaney and Parrish, Holmes is going to FSU. Not saying I'd be upset with that, I personally think Parrish is the better RB, Holmes is the better athlete, but I'm just saying that's how it will shake out.

Does it seem like the staff might be prioritizing Holmes more at this point?
