5* Auburn OL Calvin Ashley Announces Transfer to FAU
jgf2017 saidIíd literally have more faith in a 2 star high school kid than these transfers. If the guy wasnít good enough to see the field then what does that say. It says he was overhyped. Itís been proven over and over again, McNeal, Franklin, Riles, that if theyíre not good enough to play at P5 theyíre not good enough to play G5. Itís just the way it is. This guy will never play a down and if he does will not be effective.†Posted On: Mar 19th 2019, 9:37 AM
I think it's important you separate JUCO from other transfers.
World beater or not Riles came here and started 10 games for us and plugged a hole, Taleni was great for us in 2017, Chris Robinson could be a great QB for us, and Durante was our best WR last year.
Who knows how Ashley will work out, but maybe him spending three years(two playing) he can take the next step.
Also the " if theyíre not good enough to play at P5 theyíre not good enough to play G5. Itís just the way it is.''
Is simply the most ridiculous statements I have ever read on this forum.
jgf2017 saidI said this last year and I stand by it, you donít want the P5 kids that werenít good enough. If you want them so badly (personally I have more faith in HS recruiting), then you need to find the kids that got kicked off the team for something stupid. Grad transfers like Taleni donít count Bc remember he was good enough at Tulane. He didnít leave for poor performance. Neither did Robison. However, guys like McNeal, Riles, and Durante did come here Bc they werenít good enough. And what did that bring us, Durante? Admittedly he was the only one of these guys that could actually play, but he had serious drop issues.†Posted On: Mar 19th 2019, 11:26 AM
I am all for high schools kids as well, but when you get a chance to take a 5 star guy who has no off the field issues, will have two years of eligibility who just wants a new start at a lower level of college football you take that 10/10 times.
