Changing Of The Guard (Part Four)...Leading Up To Signing Day

Quincy PierreContributor IJanuary 16, 2009

Denard Robinson, ATH, Considering Michigan, Florida, Louisville, Georgia

Denard is a supreme talent wherever he plays, that’s how good this kid is. He plays quarterback and can make all the throws and has “track speed” to get out of trouble in the pocket. While most schools are recruiting him to play elsewhere, I think he would make a great college quarterback. I still don’t have a clue on where he will sign, but I think he will go to Michigan.

Chad Bumphis, ATH, Considering Alabama, Mississippi State, Florida

The only thing that doesn’t have Chad to the top of recruiting boards is his height. Chad is a burner, who is excellent in running routes and has strong hands. Chad is extremely dangerous in the return game as a kick or punt returner. He is probably going to choose between Alabama and Mississippi State and I feel he will go to Alabama.

Petey Smith, ILB, Considering Alabama and Auburn

Petey is a rock-solid run defender, who moves around in traffic really well. He is an explosive hitter and he will intimidate you with those bone-crunching pops. He is an adequate pass defender, who will have to get better to be an every down player. Alabama and Auburn are the only two schools he will be choosing from and I think he will go to Auburn.

Cliff Harris, CB, Considering USC, Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State

Cliff has all the intangibles you want in a cornerback. He is tall, smart, and has good speed. He is better in zone than man-to-man. It doesn’t mean he can’t play it, but will have to improve on some technique and will have to get stronger to cover college wideouts. This is a two-horse race between USC and Oregon. I don’t see Pete Carroll letting Cliff leave California, but Oregon has put on the full court press to land him. I think he will sign with the Oregon Ducks.
