ATH Jacquille Veii [Maryland - Signed NLI]

Recommended Posts

i just made a thread not to long ago on the main recruiting page didnt feel like making a profile can you make one for the other guy too? Nexus will come by and clean um up with the stars and links.

 

Actually wouldnt be a terrible pickup can play slot or CB, definitely on to the backups.

No want. Save the spots these guys are just to fill the roster.

 

I agree. Rather see an offer go out for a 2014 prospect. Don't want to commit four years to a guy that just fill up a class.

Just watched the video, I wasn't excited about this offer but the video may have changed that a bit if you look at his defensive highlights, he will come up and hit you hard and has GREAT closing speed!

Is it just me, or do a lot of these recent guys have a bunch of schools like Alabama Weslyn, Stony Brook, Roast Beef State, and then Iowa with offers?

 

Hahahaha ^^^^ so true and now us with Iowa, ugh lets not get lumped in there

I dont know why everyone is not liking this kid. He seems to have a lot of pop in his pads and above average speed too. The fact that he played offense bodes will for good hands which we all agree we need more of on our defense. I agree that he will likely be playing at corner but it looks like he did run out of the read option in high school and has good vision (although not as athletically gifted as Taylor or Newby) so wouldn't be surprised if they at least looked at him at rb too.

I seriously don't get a lot of these posts. Look at his film. For about six minutes, it almost all touchdowns. Then, for the next six minutes, it's ints, sacks, great hits, take always, ect., and that's only his senior highlights. Listen, even if you don't think he's that great, why in the world would you post that? Bo obviously thinks he's good, and by your actions, you are hindering his recruiting efforts. It's his call, and he is running the team. Try helping, not hurting our chances. Bo has recruited a number of players that didn't have that many high profile offers, and where in states that get far greater attention (eg, Martinez, Abdullah, Bell -- pretty much our offensive stars). He did a pretty good job picking them didn't he?

Also, look where he's playing and what ranking he has. MD is not going to get hardly any attention recruiting wise, and 2 stars usually mean that they don't have enough to properly rate him.

 

I know there is a lot people will attack in this post (namely that the players I mentioned were recruited by some programs), but look at big picture. Not only are you hurting Bo's recruitment, you are attacking a kid. Just keep those comments to yourself, or phrase them in a better way.

Good post. I watched that whole highlight film and the kid is worthy of an offer. Atheletic, fast, good size, tough, and great instincts. Kid forces a lot of turnovers. I don't understand how people can say pass and wait for next year. Why so we can end up short again after a few kids decide to decommit. Just because he is a late offer doesn't mean he isn't a good offer. Last year people were saying the same thing about Thomas Brown and Leroy Alexander and now everybody is singing a different tune. Three years ago we had to try to get Kenny Bell late and a kid named Cain Colter was our backup plan. Our coaches probably have been reviewing hundreds of films with so few guys left on our board, and they are bound to find some more diamonds in the rough.

I really wish we could have taken Cain Colter... not improve over team, but to make sure he isn't f'ing us every time we play NW.

He is friends with Marcus Newby so he said he would feel comfortable coming here. JP is visiting today to lockdown a visit. Wants to play CB but we are looking at him for the slot, but said he would do what's best for the team. Ran a 4.4 laser timed and a 4.28 handheld. I don't think we want him at corner he's only 5'9" but the versatility is nice.

5'9" is fine at CB as long as he's not a scrawny guy who gets thrown around. I can't remember where I heard it, but the average height of NFL CBs is 5'10"

I'm sure you're aware that 5-9 to 5-10 is pretty common for CBs. We'd like to have taller guys but there aren't a lot of those to go around.

Yes but it's not what we recruit.....why we didn't pursue Dashon Hunt. It's not what the staff wants. Starting to see a lot bigger corners in the nfl as well. Pete Caroll and Nick Saban love tall corners

Isn't Alfonzo Dennard 5' 10"?

 

What's your point? Doesn't change the fact that Bo prefers taller corners. It's a trend in our recruiting the last few years. Doesn't mean they won't take the occasional one like Josh Mitchell if the identify him early, but your not going to convince me we are going to reach on a CB this small this late in the process, when we turned down Dashon Hunt because of his height. If he turns out to be the next Dennard than all the better

 

Besides he said we want him on offense, and special teams.

He just said in an article he was 5'9 170 and we are looking at him on offense. According to his own words we are not looking at him as a corner.

 

He seems like a good kid and I think he would be a good pick up this late because he's willing and versatile enough to play where we need him and we need athletes on special teams returning kicks, getting down the field on punts and kickoffs or what not.

And we all know how bad we need someone good returning kicks and punts. If this is the guy and he is willing to put in the work, then I am good with it.

he will be a slot or safety, too small for CB

 

Too small for a CB, but big enough to be a safety...

 

WTF? :confucius:dunno

I'm glad I wasn't the only one confused....

Ya, slot or CB, and I'm pretty sure they are looking at him for slot from what I've heard. Don't think we have much shot at James Clark so they want to fill that slot position.

The only reason why I say CB is because there is a bigger need there then slot IMO. Some of it depends on where they play Dixon, Moore etc.. I think he would be a great slot guy too if that's where he wants to play. If he is open I think there's an opportunity at CB in 2014.

If you tabbed 4 stars next to his name, nobody would dispute it. The dude is a baller.

 

Then you watched a different vid than I did. Watch Terrell Newby's tape (and actual 4 star recruit) and then watch this kid's again. Not in the same realm of talent.

 

Edit: I hope that if we take him he ends up in the secondary. He has great instincts back there, whether he's at CB or S

Terrell Newby is one of the top 100 kids nationally. screw what the services say. He and Taylor are top 100 recruits. Im not looking at him to be a rb but he has a great physique for his size and is fast. I've seen guys who have 4 stars near their name and dont deserve it. this guy's tape is better than Boaz Jospehs.
