For an 18 yr old's first game I was impressed. I am looking forward to this 18 yr maturing, getting stronger, learning new moves, using his hands and improving his footwork. He has to get better every year or he could be closer to Amobe Okoye rather than Reggie White.
I finished the game, and I saw it differently.
To be honest, if nobody told me about his status (including the TV guys), I wouldn't have noticed him.
I mean, there were other guys that showed up more on both sides of the ball for both team.
Vandy put up 35 points and over 400 yards, didn't they? With a new QB, no less.
Yes, for a freshman playing his first game, he showed plenty of potential.
You can see that he has a combination of power, quickness, and tenacity.
If he keeps working hard, he has a good chance to reach his potential.
Ole Miss is one of the SEC underdogs that I root for against the big boys, and so I hope he does well.
