And, he’s no longer coming here:

(Patrick) #11

DE/TE Dalton Williams from Goose Creek Memorial - Has offers from Howard Payne, Texas-Permian Basin and ETBU

(Patrick) #12


I need to see his low-lights. It’s hard to believe he only has those few offers by looking at his highlights. He’s disruptive on nearly every play in the video-creating a lot of negative plays. He’d fit in well with our new DC!

(Patrick) #14

He’s also a long snapper so my guess is that he’ll be coming here to primarily do that, but it’s possible that he might see the field in other areas.

Today many football (and soccer and track and men’s water polo) prospects will sign scholarship offers and National Letters of Intent. But next to them at their school’s signing ceremony might be some prospects who are donning college gear and maybe even signing a type of offer but it won’t be an NLI and they won’t be getting a scholarship, at least not right away.

They are preferred walk-ons, to use the most common term. Football Scoop asked coaches what that meant and while there is a lot of consensus, there is some room for interpretation:

Nine out of the 10 staffs we spoke with use the “preferred concept” and to those nine, the clear difference between a preferred walk-on versus someone who simply walks-on is that the preferred means he is guaranteed a spot on the 105 man roster day one of camp, while other walk-ons will have to go through tryouts to see if they can earn a spot on the roster.

2* RB Josh Williams from the Kinkaid - Son of former UH RB Jermaine Williams - This is his first FBS offer


Think he’s a PWO, Patrick. Looks like we have a good shot at a running back from Louisiana with a couple of SEC offers.

You might be right. He definitely worded that differently than his other non-FBS offers.

I’ll move it over to the PWO thread.

I think this guy is a PWO as I’m not sure we’d offer a scholarship to a Long Snapper out of high school:

LS/QB Davis Beal from Austin, TX - Has PWOs from Michigan and Texas

(Mike Higdon) #19

Didn’t he actually sign a scholly with Abilene Christian?

(Patrick) #20

Looks like it.
