    Plumper should play running back. Ideal body-type. Insane speed. Great vision. He would thrive in the NFL at that position. I’m all in in Buffalo for the best few years... I would love to see either him or Max Borgi in Buffalo.

    Former UMass freshman RB Jared Cole transferred to Virginia Tech.
    Cole (5'9/190) has decided to head back to his home state of Virginia after spending one season at UMass. The freshman running back appeared in four games for the Minutemen last season, which was shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic and UMass (an FBS independent) losing much of its original schedule as a result. In those games, Cole rushed for seven yards on 12 carries while also catching two passes for another 13 yards. Cole will have up to four seasons of eligibility remaining at Virginia Tech.

    WR Drew Estrada transfers from Dartmouth to Baylor. He had a pretty solid career at Dartmouth, returning to Texas where he’s from.

    I’ve been checking in on Zane Dudek often. No news that I can find.
    Is he eligible to play one more year at Yale?
    NFL....Grad transfer?

    Another guy moving up is DB Rush Lansdell transferring from UT-Martin to Memphis. I encourage these FCS to FBS transfers, can never have too many guys in the FBS. I believe he is playing linebacker at Memphis.

    Thanks for these updates! Some really great performances.

    Great to see a dominant performance by a white running back in Hunter Luepke, hopefully his role will grow and he will become an offensive focal point. If he does end up becoming a Zenner like dominant FCS runner then we can certainly use the Trey Lance argument in Luepke's favor.

    Awesome reminiscent of Tyler Roehl! I hope Luepke keeps putting up monster numbers.

    I wasn't sure where to stick this tidbit. Apparently, there's a hotshot teenager from Germany raising eyebrows on our end of the pond.

    I actually knew what was coming as soon as I read the headline.

    There's a high school outfit in California that specifically takes on German kids who are trying to get American football scholarships. This "German of Nigerian descent" is up to 14 offers now, mostly from P5 bluebloods. What upside, what potential. Here's an article if you needed one.

    I am assuming we can put German in quotation marks for all these kids that school is trying to recruit.

    let’s hope he has a long productive career and gets elevated to 1st round status just like tray Lance! Oh wait Lance was a 1 year starter on a plug and play dominant team, his predecessor Easton stick was one of the best FCS qbs but due to his whiteness dropped to an 5th round afterthought but let’s give Lance hype even though he is not a refined passer and is inaccurate. No agenda here!

    back to college ball - I will be keeping tabs on Luepke for sure - it’s a shame the ndsu head coach has decided to make the program a quotaback one.

    As for Alvarez retiring - the long game probably does not look good for Wisconsin. Alvarez was the reason the culture was the way it was and why they recruited the way they did. Chryst is unfortunately recruiting non white qbs now which is a shame. They are notorious for recruiting running backs from New Jersey for some reason too. Not trying to knock Wisco but just worried that Alvarez and his departure are going to cause some dramatic changes for the program.

    Kyle McCord is a 5 star freshman QB and Jack Miller a 4 star RS-Freshman. Stroud is the quotaback - it's Ohio st and Ryan Day - is this really going to be a fair competition?


    The competition for Ohio State's starting quarterback job between CJ Stroud, Jack Miller and Kyle McCord remains undecided.

    Both Stroud and Miller have been getting first-team reps in practice, as the Buckeyes continue to progress towards their annual spring game this weekend. According to Bill Landis of The Athletic, Stroud went first during individual drills during a recent no-pads practice, while Miller was first up during a red zone passing period (against the defense) later in the session. “We’ve been rolling them,” Ohio State HC Ryan Day said. “Guys have had good days and bad days, good reps and not-so-good reps. That’s what happens when you have young quarterbacks. There’s a lot to improve on with all three guys. They need a million reps. The minute you think one guy is taking a step forward, he does something foolish and somebody else will make a play. Now they’re coming on and it flips the other way. But that’s expected. I think they’ve done a good job of not trying to force the action. They’re not trying to win the job in a day, and that’s huge.”
