    A constant battle. Next year's wide receiver draft looks like a possible shut out. Grim city here we come. Unless?

    I am sure many remember WR JJ Worton of Central Florida. He really came on and there was some NFL chatter but if memory serves he got banged up some and never made it.

    Last year his brother, former Florida WR CJ Worton posted a 37-627-6 stat line for FIU. Now a redshirt senior, Worton will have a chance to improve on those stats.

    Recently he took part in the pro day drills as some college seniors to be are prone to do.

    Make a mental note. He burned a 4.37 40 yard dash. Worton has solid size at 6'0" 183 and has proven he is a down field threat.

    If he can blow up his senior year (FIU has another rising white WR in senior Austin Maloney) Worton just might wind up on the NFL radar.

    Next year the pickings are slim so we need the few players that might have any chance to come through.

    Worton should be at the top of that list.

    CJ Worton surprising declared for the draft in January. He is already 23 years old since he spent 5 years in college but did have a year of eligibility left since he never played in more than 5 games in any of his 3 seasons at Florida. May not be the best move since he could have a big senior year but best of luck to him on his NFL journey!

    Let's see how everything pans out. It's easy to look ahead and get disgruntled but honestly having only 4-5 WRs for the past few seasons with a shot at getting drafted is just as bad. The caste system is so well entrenched that even after a decade of greatness by players such as Welker and Jordy white WRs are still not making great inroads. The AAF did a great job at ignoring talented white players as well - they would rather march out black scrubs than white players with NFL ability. The caste system is essentially a cult with people like us being the only ones who question it. I will say that when checking out the updates in the recruiting class threads there do seem to be more white WRs getting recruited than I can recall (always appreciate the great work everyone who monitors/updates the recruiting class threads - dolphins15, Bucky, Shadowlight, Rockybleier, Heretic, DeceptiveSpeed and all other contributors).

    I am sure we will come across some surprises as the college write-ups start up. Twenty-Two also does a great job of combing through not just FBS teams but also FCS to find white WRs to track.

    I had the CJ Worton situation half ass backwards. I didn't realize he declared for this draft. Wasn't playing close enough attention. I thought he was just running and doing the drills preparing for the 2020 draft thinking he would suit up for FIU this season. Like mentioned above he had a year of eligibility left and 23 isn't that old.

    Crap. I agree with Red Raider. I don't think he is on the NFL radar and I was thinking if he had an outstanding final season at FIU then some doors might open.

    2020 WR situation looked bad enough as it was and here I go shooting myself in the foot trying to get things off on an optimistic start.

    South Carolina QB/WR Jay Urich may be a guy to watch this year. He was the spring game MVP with 9-130-1 receiving stats and also playing at QB and throwing a TD pass. He’s about 6’5” 210lbs and coach Muschamp said he probably runs under 4.5. I hope he can crack the rotation!

    A lot of spring games yesterday. Fascinating and mind boggling. These games are often loaded with white players including the skill positions. Nebraska's two main running backs were white, Mazur # 37 and Belt #38. But like some magic trick by the time the real season starts the white players scatter like mice and are nowhere to be found.

    At first I thought this was a neat story until I found out that Penn State WR Dan Chisena #88 is a senior. He was given a scholarship after he burned a DB for a 59 yard TD. He was a sprinter on their track team. But being a senior chances are pretty good he won't be able to establish himself as an NFL prospect or even earn playing time. His size 6'2" 210 and his blinding 4.3 speed are enticing but it all sounds too good to be true and too late in the day for anything good to come out of it. If he was a sophomore then that would be a different story.

    I believe he was mentioned here at caste when he became a walk on back when. Hoping for a miracle lets hope Chisena somehow emerges. Nice video above hopefully Rigdon emerges too.

    UCONN WR Mason Donaldson
    He made some plays in 2017 but for some reason did not have a catch in 2018. Hopefully he can crack the rotation again this season.

    Michigan’s RB group will be one to watch in 2019. Ben VanSumeren has impressed harbaugh this spring and should see some carries this season. The dude is jacked and looks like a white DK Metcalf. They also have former walk on Tru Wilson who has a darker complex but is a white/Hispanic mix. Ben Mason should also see some carries and snaps at TE/HB in addition to playing along the defensive line. I’m most interested in seeing VanSumeren, as he does not look like your typical running back.

    In a surprising and questionable move, Penn State SR QB Tommy Stevens entered the transfer portal yesterday. He was assumed to be the next starter after Trace McSorley but maybe Coach Franklin had different plans? Tommy Stevens is very versatile and has lined up all over the field during his years at PSU.
    His career stats
    Passing: 24/41 304 yards, 4 TD 1 INT
    Rushing: 76-506-8 TD
    Receiving: 14-62-2 TD
    6’5” 230lbs

    Cue the Nick Fitzgerald comparisons

    Looking up Max Borghi, I found out that LB Cole Dubots has moved to running back
    Thin at RB, looks like one of their lunch pail fullbacks may get some carries, also.

    Looks like Cole Gest will be buried on the depth chart in Indiana.
    Cade Carney of Wake has a shoulder issue, but should be good for the fall....
    Air Force will be bright at running back once again.....
    Taiwan Deal is gone for Wisconsin making Garrett Groshek number two on the dc.
    For Illinois, Mike Epstein is listed 2nd on the depth chart....
    Looking for a bounce back year with Zane Dudek at Yale.....

    Worth watching where this dual threat Taysom Hill type lands because he will be eligible to play this season.

    OSU qb Michael Baldwin has decided to transfer. My guess is the new head cuck as OSU has gifted the job to his quotaback. Martell saw the writing on the wall a few months ago and left. Now Baldwin who put up better numbers than fields in the spring game has decided to leave. I believe fields was something like 4-13 passing but had a long td pass and some runs which got the media all hyped up for him.

    I remember reading some positive things about Baldwin so hopefully he surfaces somewhere else much like Joe Burrow did last season.

    Shame but these White QBs are retarded in their college choices. Certain schools and coaches have reputations as only playing Black QBs. Wake up n smell the coffee. Ohio State is one of those schools. Another "QB Battle" that wasn't really a battle. 90% of these go to Black QB now. Pathetic.

    Yea I agree. My hope is that the entitled Fields falls flat on his face. White kids need to wisen up and know who to avoid. The new Oklahoma head coach is an all time cuck in the making too. Check out his mystery meat recruit if you thought Mahomes was funny looking.

    You can’t lose if you don’t play the rigged game. Both of these young men were wise to transfer. It’s clear that part of the negotiating package to land the overhyped afrolete quotaback was a guaranteed starting job. The Ohio State Cuckeyes are a shameful program that disgrace the working class Whites of Ohio.

    I got to watch a little bit of the Arkansas spring game a few weeks ago and there was a white corner out playing real well. His name was Nathan Parodi from Texas. I don't know if he is even on the 2 deep or less but he is a red shirt freshman and once again looked real well defending every time they threw his way. I was in the hospital so I had the sound off. Did not hear anything on him.

    A pair of four-star Washington quarterbacks have both entered the transfer portal, sources told 247Sports.

    Following the conclusion of Washington's spring camp, Colson Yankoff and Jacob Sirmon — both members of the Huskies’ 2017 recruiting class — are at least exploring the option of transferring out of the program.

    Jacob Eason, the Georgia transfer and former five-star, is widely considered the frontrunner for the job, while Jake Haener (spelling) looks to at least have the backup spot locked down.

    The Huskies are looking to replace Jake Browning, a four-year starter who exhausted his eligibility last season. He guided Washington to 39 wins over four seasons and left as the program’s all-time leader in several categories, including passing yards (12,296), touchdown passes (94) and passing efficiency (150.6).

    Hope they both transfer and are able to get starting jobs next year. Hate to see the stockpiling of talented white QBs on one team.

    Nevada transfer and TTU slot receiver McLane Mannix was granted a waiver and will not have to sit out the 2019 season! I expect him to start at in the slot with non-white guys TJ Vasher and Seth Collins on the outside, he should have a big season once again. Caden Leggett, Dalton Rigdon, and Sterling Galban are 3 other white receivers who could see some playing time for the Red Raiders as well. Matt Wells seems to be a white friendly coach, his Utah State teams usually had a lot of white defenders.

    Bucky should be happy to hear that RB and converted safety Jax Welch was named one of the 16 team captains. That’s a pretty big statement for a walk on player who isn’t a senior. Matt Wells seems to like him and I hope he gives him some carries this year in his first season as a running back. He’s a popular player in the locker room and the team captains were voted by the players so that speaks for itself. He even scored a TD in the spring game. In an interview Welch said that he asked the coaches to switch to RB because he played it on scout team and liked it and was pretty good at it so he wanted to give it a go full time. He had never played the position in high school but he ended up liking it on scout team. Will be a pretty cool story if he ends up making plays at RB.

    Great to hear McLane Mannix was (rightfully) granted a waiver. Looking over the college landscape he is probably the most important white WR for this upcoming season. If he can have a big season maybe he can declare early and get drafted but I am getting way too far ahead of myself.

    Sterling Galban is a red shirt freshman who tore his ACL last year. Too bad about that because he is a 4.3 burner. But overall Red raider it seems that Texas Tech likely has the most impressive white WR layout than any other Power 5 conference school.

    Of course we will have to see how things shake out with this new coaching staff. I have been frustrated over the past several years with TT because it seems that black WRs have been the main focus. Dylan Cantrell stands out but even he wasn't a primary target for most of his career.

    But this is an exciting group of WRs with a lot of giddy up. Dalton Rigdon is slight but looks fast on the field. So a lot of promise on paper at least for Texas Tech this season.
