Underclassmen: staying or going?
 
Just thought I would start a thread where we could announce word on underclassmen who are entering the draft or staying in school:

Some who are staying:

Orien Harris (DT) Miami
Winston Justice (LT) Miami
Gabe Watson (DT) Michigan
Verand Morency (RB) OSU

Leaving:

Troy Williamson (WR) SC
Ciatrick Fason (RB) UF
Rian Wallace (LB) Temple
Chris Henry (WR) WV
Pac Man Jones (CB) WV
T.A. McClendon (RB) NCST

Justice LT USC
Winston LT Miami

both can be on the list.

Looks like you can add Alex Smith (QB) Utah to the list of players leaving.

I doubt E. Winston will leave. He is a STUD, but injured his knee earlier this year.

Ut Dl?
 
I can't think of his name but Longhorns have a stud Nose G, perfect pick to be groomed by S Payne. Anybody know if he is staying or going?

*Utah QB Alex Smith hinted at the Fiesta Bowl press conference that he is leaning towards the draft. 3rd year sophomore WR Steve Savoy is apparently considering the draft as well.

*Rian Wallace is in and his teammate, QB Walter Washington apparently is leaning towards entering as well.

*Virginia OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson has made it pretty clear he plans to return. Teammates Daryl Blackstock and Ahmad Brooks are also expected to return.

*Tennessee coaches appear confident that FS/CB Jason Allen will be returning to the Vols next year.

*Oklahoma State RB Vernand Morency has decided he will return to the Cowboys next season.

i was talking about the staying list...think both have done so publicly, did not mean to confuse.

TAMU Free Safety?
 
Does anyone know if Jaxson Appel is thinking of coming out as a JR? That kid is a tackling machine...he would be a good pick-up in the middle rounds. He might be better suited to SS in the long run but he would probably be an immediate positive impact on special teams and a solid back-up for Coleman.

Most likely not, the middle round good football players, but not great athlete types usually stay all 4 years.

Marion Barber III said he was returning to Minn next year. Be warned this is a second hand source, but I trust it.

texasguy346 12-30-2004 02:43 PM

Morency could still leave if his coach leaves to take the LSU job, but he alluded before the Alamo Bowl that he'd be staying.

texansfan88 12-30-2004 03:27 PM

talked to mathias kiwanuka about a week ago and he's still waiting on his nfl evaluation back before he makes his decision, so don't buy into the boston globe just yet.

They haven't decided yet. I think their waiting till after the game. Richt probably doesn't want any distractions.

DC ROCK posted a link in the 3 A.M. thread, and in it Davis says he's more go than stay right now.

For everyone interested in Ciatrick Fason the RB out of Florida you should definately watch him and the Gators face off against Miami tonight in the Peach Bowl. I believe it starts at around 6:30 or 7 tonight.

TexansCanes 01-02-2005 02:36 AM

for miami, frank gore is almost certain to come out. i think his mother is quoted saying that he will probabaly leave. a surprise is that roscoe parrish is thinking of coming out. he said something about it before the peach bowl and was talking about it even more after. lb roger macintosh who was thinking of coming out has decided to stay for his sr. and to improve his draft status. he is a physical freak big, strong, and fast (4.5) i don't have a quote or link to confirm, but this is the word on the miami message board.

maybe we should forget what i said about gore, according to an atl radio sation he is going to stay. i think it also has to do with what the draft advisory board has to say (frank said he would go if he is a 1st or 2nd) and if he is able to get insured for next season. we will know by jan 15
