    I thought the exact same thing.... IF he plays, it won't be at QB.

    I also definitely didnt see him as a D1 talent. I watched them play a couple times this year. He has some decent speed but nothing special. I'm sure Carthel does it to keep a presence in the Panhandle so that when a really good one comes along he has a chance. He signed a QB from Canyon a couple years ago to Commerce that I don't think has a chance at ever playing

    Nick Saban said he pays no attention to stars when offering a kid. He said in the last 10 years Alabama has offered 8 kids who had NO Stars and over 20 Kids who were 2 Star Recruits when they offered them. Within a week of being offered by Alabama they were all moved up to 4 star recruits by rivals. I agree the teams that sign the best classes win at a much higher level. I just don't believe the people ranking the classes really have any ideal who REALLY signed the best players.

While they don’t list FCS schools separately you can go down their rankings and develop a top 20 FCS class list. Using this method it looks like SFA is either second or third. By any measure SFA had a great recruiting year.
    Did you expect anything different from the Carthel'S???

    Kid is a JOCK.....a real STUD. Carthel has something in mind.

    Today's TOP Qb is 5'9 & under 200 LBS. He is a stud with quick feet, laser arm, and great vision.

    The old 1970's pocket QB is dead. A new wave is a coming. AND is already making it all the way to the NFL. BE READY or get LEFT BEHIND!

    This is exactly how it works.

    If two players are exactly the same, the one committed to Alabama will be a 4 star while the one committed to UAB will be a 2 star.

    Yep... recruiting class rankings are bunk. Seriously no one knows how any of these 17-19 year olds will do. Its all just fodder to keep us old guys engaged and spending money!

    His stature didn't seem to match a Carthel quarterback.

    I'd take the QB kid from Glen Rose that WT signed, Cameron Griffin, over Rikel. Without question. Griffin is 6'1 and 190. I've watched his highlight video 4 times now. Good arm, quick release, accurate, very mobile, able to pull it down and make something happen when it's the thing to do. A prototype for the kind of QB Pops was describing.

    Pop, take a look at Griffin and give me your opinion. It will be valued.

    I like this QB. He plays a bit slow, but in all fairness he competed at 4A....he WILL learn how to play much faster at the collegiate level. Excellent play-maker in my opinion. Very hard to defend. He knows HOW to win.(most important) Thumbs up from me!!

    Thanks! Get him a RS year, some PT as a RSF and soph and maybe it's his job for his last two years. I have a feeling the Levelland kid and TxTech transfer, Nick Gerber, will be ensconced for the next three years.

    Unless they can find a better QB than Gerber or Griffin. That's an even better solution.

    He had some family issues. He’s back in Austin. They hope he’ll return this fall.

    So UAB has comparable talent to Alabama because the recruiting rankings are bunk ?

    What do you bet that Colby will have the LumberJacks in the FCS playoffs in a couple of seasons? Optimism is running high down in Nacogdoches!
