Reginald Davis' story is probably the favorite in this category......But you have to admire both Conner Groom for walking on and then Chase Robison for turning down Tenn.-- supposedly the team he admired growing up...I also like Quinton White-- his twitter handle is "hardworkpaysoff" or something like that. Not sure if he'll do anything, but I also admire Austin Stewart-- kid was passed over by D1 schools out of HS in spite of having some pretty good numbers & measurables. He was on a state championship team and I believe had a big game.

Got the ball rolling, and I believe, is a big reason why we were able to hold onto Wheeler.Micah Awe is my other guy. This quote just sticks with me, and I wish every player had his attitude..."I’ve always wanted to have a big Division I school come get me. I didn’t think it was going to be possible, because I’m undersized, but Texas Tech’s not worried about size or how big a player is. They’re recruiting for leadership and heart.”

And what is the story about Bynum switching his name? I only kinda sorta heard about it but didn't catch the important details.

To me this says we will definitely continue passing the ball a lot which I want to see. We really need Lee Adams, Starts and Delvon Simmons to give us an SEC-like front 4 we can control games with by 2014.

When you look a year or two down the road though, they'll be needed. So despite all the questions about moving people to defense don't be surprised if most of these athlete types (guys like K Ward) actually do stick at WR.The one I'm curious about most is Reginald Davis. You gotta figure a guy like that from a place like Tenaha played both sides of the ball. And he seems to have decent size and the attitude of doing whatever he can to contribute.
