For the Coogs out there I'm curious to know how he did against primetime programs. Admittedly I don't follow UH at all, but my vague recollection is that he never had a signature game against a top program, I could be wrong of course so don't go building a cross just yet.
Come on, what any player does in college is important. You evaluate there skills, movements, ability to handle body weight, maturity and positional strengths/weaknesses like back pedal, laterals, push, verticals, hip rotation, first step, routes & coverage etc. Sure you take into consideration who they play but that is a useful tool also. Does the player dominate the weaker opponent and step up against the greater guy? Does he have good motor or coast? If you follow college ball at all these are discuss annually as folks are this year with Clowney.
