He chose to play for us. I never heard of this kid before. Did he ever play for us or did he change his mind and commit somewhere else? Florida_Owl any idea?

hahhaa that was good, yeah me neither. I looked all around I see nothing about him being dismissed. Maybe he didn't get into the school cuz of grades it would be fitting lol

Here he is on the signing list from 2004.

Football Inks 23 for 2004 Season - Florida Atlantic Owls Official Athletic Site

He's on there, you just have to look for him.

Maybe his situation was similar to Daniel Joseph's. He didn't have the test scores to get in at first. Then after working a few years he decided to give it another try.

I think I remember OG Owl having some things to say about him which were good.  (who remembers OG? we miss you OG!!)  :) OG was familiar with many of the HS players around So FL.

I know he's on there. I saw his name when I was looking at past classes on Rivals. My question is though, what happened to him? I like to think I'm a pretty knowledgeable fan and I never heard of this guy and I'm pretty sure he never played for us. Anyone know what happened to him? Why he never played and where he ended up going to college?

OG was very knowledgeable with HS & younger players.  He was very involved with youth programs & stuff, even did some writing for Rival Varsity at one point.  And the guy guy had a wealth of resources, at his finger tips.

Clearly left a huge void for Owl fans, especially on this board.

i was his roommate in college. the kid didnt want to play at all. from the first day of camp he was always complaining. he never went to class or practice and just wasted the schools money. i swear to god he told me his excuse for missing everything word for word was he had "blue balls" from getting hit. you dont miss a season and class for that. now the coaches didnt give up on him, they got his parents to take away his car and his phone so he could stay at school and get focused but that didnt work and he always was gone. personally he was a good and cool guy to be around. i just couldnt see how he committed to football but then just gave up on it.
