Katerian Legrone's potential at WR

Recommended Posts

Here is perhaps our big bodied WR, who redshirted last season. Looking at his HC highlights, he is very athletic — elusive and fast enough, even though he may not be a burner. Someone posted in his profile thread that he ran a a 4.6 electronic 40 time. I believe he is about 6’3 and 235 pounds. He can also leap up above DBs to make tough catches.  This is one, among other newcomers, to watch this spring.

C'mon man. You made me think he was leaving...

Hopefully you both are joking. I was talking about his athletic talent mainly. Why not express your thoughts on what this young man could potentially bring to our offense next season. I like to read them. Again if you are being humorous, cool.

Lately when a player’s name comes up on the main board, it has something to do with them leaving.  We were all afraid to open it.

 

DON’T vote for Pedro.  :lol:

Gotch you. For now on my title will be “Not Leaving — Katerian Legrone.” Now, come on, tell me your thoughts are on this WR. I want to read them.

Edit: Well dang, I can’t edit the title. Now the whole board will be mad at me.

Sounds like a plan.

 

I think he's a solid athlete that we can use to find some mismatches. If you look at his high school film, he's all over the place making plays.  We have lots of weapons and I'm excited to see Frost's offense evolve from year one to year two here.

We are FURIOUS with you.  J/k.  It would be better if people (not just you) would put something like “Thoughts on Katerina Legrone” or whatever player is the subject.

 

As for my thoughts on the player... i don’t have any yet.  His HS stuff looks ok, not great, but we DO need a big buy at WR to go along with the burners.   Will it be KL?  Maybe.  Someone needs to up their game.

Updated the thread title for you.

Legrone is not a WR but has the potential to develop into a very good receiving TE. Down the road I could see him splitting out wide (similar to Gronk) to create mismatches - but by no means should he be considered a WR.

He had a catch this year right? I think i remember him playing in garbage time against Illinois.

 

I think it was against Bethune Cookman, but he had a catch and a good block. With McGriff gone I think Legrone has a chance to contribute next year - Stoll, Allen, and Rafdal all good but they don't have Legrone's speed. Could see him having some expanded packages in a few games.

Hybrid TE/WR is what I’m thinking.

He was working with the TE's during the season, which I think is good. That is where he is headed size-wise anyway, better for him to learn his future position than get some token reps in at wr. Plus in this scheme TE's do split-out and play somewhat of a hybrid role in the first place.

He is now up to 260 and is testing well this winter, according to Hail Varsity. I expect to see him him on the field some next season. That gives us possibly two athletic TEs in the future when you add Hickman.

He will be similar to the role that Jordan Akins played for UCF last year. Athletic TE that creates a lot of mismatches.

 

It’s something I think we are missing and something that is really vital. Frost loves to use vertical passing concepts down the middle of the field because his main constraint play are outside screens. This results in a lot of split safety and cover 0 looks leaving the deep middle open. The problem is a lot of vertical concepts like switch or y cross, both of which he uses, can be slow to develop. 

 

A little bit of speed at TE, either inline or as an h-back, is a straight line down the middle of the field.

He was smaller(weight wise, similar height) but I remember when we used Kyler Reed like this and loved watching that
