Did you notice that Marcus had that ability. From the giggle or was he like a late bloomer. From a physical standpoint and also ability or was he like looked like a basketball players come in the political law are well when you first set eyes on him. He yes you do about this case you aren't hearing yet he would. He was a basketball player. I would say that he would forget that developed. You know a lot of people would be everybody's this stone but I don't know I deeply people Mitt when he was ready made. It took him time and development. And fortunately you know he would any place where time was on society he had an opportunity to be developed. And wouldn't you know meager 210 politics that we keep hearing the few sixty well look government. As a tremendous speed until he the amazing thing he can get bigger. Faster and stronger. Job as time went on board. We got glasses when we felt like that we had seen before a cat in earnest Olympia been Coca quarterback they can go out been under it peeking into play with eating the curve the tickled with it that that tan and eventually EPA. Coach what do you say when. You know a smaller school on time the NFL NFL critics might say you know we didn't he where we're concerned about the level of competition would you say that. Yeah well you know is listed to again win they comb forum. The steps and I get calls when you work within mobile. If you have any questions you'd think you can get Canada and they can't catch him miss Christine Alabama over the issue came. Put him against them. That he can you do you implement it in the NC. And Q question and I and I think. I'm mobile it happened yet again and then he was tested and stretched in Prague. Could see woody wouldn't who he was. I think yet the question that's solidified his spot. Now break. Boy you know they are hard to find because every once our number of individual players and specialize on the pass rusher. I'm stout against the run and I can may begin to sag now and then and it is hard to find. That every down glowingly cam jar and first second third down. He finally got recognized and only his approval but all of parole. When you look at mark is Davenport now I don't think is gonna throw mob there every down home. You know and hopefully gauges contribute and and for from the gaggle the point being do you think he has that potential though. Like on first down. He's in the he might be playing a running team big Iran right Adam deacon holes on and do his job and an obvious pass try to situation. He get to the quarterback Izzy has that ability. Debated every down these nets have been. I think he'll you know. Being around those kept clear for many years. I think he has those tackles they attribute I think he's greenish current. It could be able to to Russia quarterbacking. And baca. Check quarterback. Bush I do think yen in the curtain of fortitude and strength to hold the point. At once toward him. Certainly nobody has the ability to issue an account from on a week. As well. Arnold booty he understands that which. He understands how to use campaign. And how to disengage from an all that clear to put an open position. To be involved in in in the tackle well yeah but I think he can become an recount every down back. You TSA head football coach frank Wilson here on sports talk go to look at your schedule for the rule rajoub W as Arizona State and Baylor he has come out the gate. Swing and on. Haven't done that before it got here. But Billy. Arizona State Baylor and in the league of the men and cancer the appalachians they still.

But being in Texas San Antonio and you have the University of Texas right there in Austin in your backyard and and all the universities there but. To me there's so many players in Texas. They came UV. Difference maker and entice them to go there but is that a case implied also that even though they have these number of players in. In Texas that you still. Have a lot of ties to Louisiana and garlands river parish region then maybe you give an opportunity to a diamond in the rough for a player. To go play for yet the University of Texas San Antonio. Here so we. Good question certainly understand the importance of recruiting I think we've done pretty gaps since he's been here. Texas certainly is is fertile recruiting ground and called the multitude of players into your numbers allow us. To be the recruitment. In state.
