Gotta be happy about getting Bush!

:neonu:

Pun intended either way.
Yep. I realize the issues there. I know his attitude has been questioned and certainly he didn't impress playing CF this year. I really don't care. He has special tools. If we have a DB coach, D-Coordinator and Head Coach worth their salt, he'll be molded (by the DB Coach), utilized (by the Coordinator) and his personality will be driven/managed (Head Coach).

In terms of attributes, he's the most gifted (attributes) DB we've picked up since Brandon Harris and maybe Jeremy Davis, and the argument can be made he has better tools (maybe not a better football player coming in).

Lu, I remember you compared him to Eric Berry.

Do you see him settling in at safety, or cornerback?

His attributes. Arm length. Feet. Aggression. Speed.

His instincts, awareness and apparently his attitude (though I don't know this personally, just what people have told me about him) aren't there.

If he's missing those below, he'll likely get placed at CB. It may be an easier transition for him.

Lu, got a question for you. I can't remember if it was you or not,but a couple of years back there were a good amount of people that weren't that high on Eduardo Clements coming out of high school, yet there was one poster that was adamant that Clements was a damn good prospect. Was that you?

That was me. I still like him a lot. I definitely thought he'd gain a little more weight (those are the guesses you can't do much about), but I like his style a lot. Not sure if I'll ultimately be wrong on that one or not. Maybe I'll just be "less wrong." I've taken my lumps for it, though. Most either wanted him as a DB or didn't think he'd amount to much.

I wasn't sure if it was you or not. Reason I asked is because from the little that I saw this past season, I think he has a chance to have a really nice season/career next year and beyond. Out of high school, I was like whatever with regards to him, so I just wanted to know who I needed to give props to when he breaks out!

i always went to bat for Clements also....

He may have the softest hands on the team....kid is a threat out of the backfield..... expect alot out of him the next two years if he puts in good work this off season..gains about 5-10 pds.

Deon Bush athletically is BIG TIME....HE wants TO BE A CB....and his tackling shows that may be him...but he is a PLUS SIZE CB..with wheels..wingspan..and a CRAZY VERT..which is why saban was all over him...kid could be a 6'1 200 pd cb as a true soph.

Looks more like a CB then safety to me, we could use another safety commit

This will be the make or break class for Golden. I feel about as good as I did with the 08 class, just this one is going to be much better. We need more DTs (Goldman would be nice finish).

Did you see his hands too? Awesome. I hope we are on him already. That looks like the game changing WR we need.
