    Excellent article/interview. This kid really has a great mind. That is as important as the physical
    attributes he has. Just look at C.McCaffrey. Very excited to see him have a chance to lead the
    Pac 12 in rushing this fall.

    It's mentioned in the video highlights that he was the 4th back the year before, and had NO scholarship offers out of high school.

    Was just watching these highlights again, Laird's a very impressive runner. And, like Jack mentioned above, the announcer says in wonderment at 2:26, "He had no scholarship offers coming out of high school." Yet another announcer feigning ignorance of the Caste System. Just once it would be great to hear an announcer say, "And to what should be no one's surprise, like most star White running backs, receivers and defensive players, he had no scholarship offers coming out of high school."

    The kid has very nice moves and toughness to go with it. He has the top end speed to take it to the house too. I'm
    very excited to see if he can build on last year. If he can rush for over 1000 yards again on a poor Cal Team, he should
    be a lock to get drafted into the nfl. Of course that is in a fair world. I think he is going to have another big year!
