Good God, how can you rack up that offer list and not be five stars? Just goes to show how accurate stars can be sometimes. He's definitely under the radar, IMHO.

what tommy tubberville said in an interview once was, screw the stars look at the offer list to see how good a player really is.

79 per ESPN

 

Kouandjio is a very solid offensive lineman that could play guard or tackle. He has great size and good mobility for such a big man. Comes out of his stance with good pad level for a tall player and plays with good leverage throughout the play. Leads with the hands and stones the defensive lineman across with the initial punch. Legs continue to drive after making contact and works on to sustain the block. A very proficient reach and zone blocker; keeps shoulders square and works upfield to the next level picking up scraping linebackers. Reliable getting movement in short yardage situations; really lowers the pads and drives the legs. Very fundamentally sound double team blocker that gets good movement at the point of attack driving defensive lineman to the second level. Very alert to inside stunts and blitzes and displays the ability come off the combo block to pick up the game. Technically sound pass protector but would like to see him kick step deeper and anchor down. Does a good job of stopping the initial charge of the pass rusher with strong hands and large wing span. Possesses athleticism as an offensive lineman; foot agility and quickness. Kouandjio is a very good offensive lineman that has the talent and toughness to take his skills to the next level.

JP really seems to be carrying the load when it comes to recruiting. Hope he can land another from his home state, if we can get to Arie to visit Ankrah could be of help.

That is quite the final eight in terms of variety of schools by location and scandal.

I wonder how New Mexico made that cut? Typo?

Maybe the coaches answer the phones there? :sarcasm

Arie Kouandjio will take three official visits before he announces his college destination Feb. 3 on National Signing Day.

 

Kouandjio will visit Alabama on Jan. 16 and Miami on Jan. 22. Tennessee will host the 6-foot-6, 315-pounder on Jan. 29, which will be his final official visit.

 

Kouandjio already has taken official visits to California and New Mexico and said he is “still open” to all of those schools, as well as Notre Dame and Maryland.
