According to Rivals.com, Sanders visited DeKalb 1/4/04.
Anyone have an idea of how the visit went?
Has NIU extended an offer?
Have any other FL players visited?
Whatever happened to fellow messageboard member flahuskie?

Hes 6'6 180...and runs a 4.80 40. Hes a little too slow to be a WR, i can see if he visited and we told him if he came here he'd have to play something like DE or OLB if he puts on some pounds.

Judging by those statistics I would hope we take a pass. Short of being able to put on 50 pounds of pure muscle and being quality enough to play tight end, its hard to imagine someone of those statistical qualities being a good addition.

His height as a receiver is intriguing, even if he is built more like Rome Sanders than Harold Carmichael.

Rivals has 6' 4" 185 lbs 4.5 sec 40
As with most things, the truth is probably in the middle.
He did visit Pitt in November, but the Panthers drifted elsewhere it appears.

I'm pumped about Wednesday.
This may sound silly but...any chance this NIU class will equal ANY of the Big 10 recruiting classes?

Probably no...But we are close to teams like NW and Indiana...though those two schools got a blue chipper or two.

This guy sounds like the prototypical "Q" position type player if he can catch the ball. That position is pretty much a possession receiver and blocker. I think you have to recruit to your system and a guy like that maybe good (since he's tall) at that position. Maybe Joe has someone else in mind for the Q position and that's why he passed on him ?

Some of the best TE's in college check in at 230-240 lbs - Winslow is listed as only 230, and Shannon Sharpe was only about 235. So there may not be a lot of weight to put on to be a good sized TE.

Brandon Davis is going to be the perfect Q...Sanders is WAY slow at 176...He puts on some weight to play the position he may lose a step or 2.

That's fine and dandy about Brandon Davis, but what happens when he graduates? If you red-shirt this kid, he'll be able to step right in. That's what recruiting is all about- "succession planning".

I think it's academic, because I don't think Sanders has a scholarship offer.

Your right, 4 years and 50 lbs later this kid may be worth a darn at the Q...Oh yea and his 40 will improve by like 2 tenths...That will make one hell of a player.

I wish all recruits could improve like that.

It's great that we have such an expert on this board. I don't know what I would do without your fabulous insight on the future. Thanks in advance for telling me that I'm wrong with my thinking. I guess that I'll just ask you for now on what the future holds.

It doesn't bother me if this kid isn't offered. I just wanted to point out that you shouldn't rule out a kid now because he's overweight and slow. Who's to say that he doesn't have one more growth sput in him (which isn't unheard of for 17-18 year olds) or he works out with an NIU trainer and gets fit.

That's the point that I was trying to drive home. Joe may have an idea of where he would fit in the offense, and that's why he made the initial recruiting contact with him.
