.From Geoff Ketchum of Orangebloods.com:

33. Jonathan Williams - (Running back/Allen)

If there weren't already a couple of superstar running backs in the state of Texas, there would be a lot more discussion about the 5-11, 205-pound Williams, who was a 2,000-yard rusher for one of the state's top 5A powers and ranks as perhaps the best big running back in Texas. Of course, you have to be careful about the big back stuff because it would typically indicate that a player lacks explosiveness and that's not Williams at all. While he can certainly run between the tackles, break tackles and accumulate a ton of yards after contact, this is a kid that possesses a really sneaky burst that allows him to run away from all defenders once he gets a crease. He's not a guy that has great 40 speed, but when he's in pads and in a game, he runs faster than just about everyone when he needs to. I also love the fact that there's not a lot of wasted motion with Williams, as he gets North/South as quickly as anyone in the state. As if all of that wasn't enough, he's more than capable in the screen game. If there's anything to dislike, he'll expose himself to contact a little openly, but that's correctable. Bottom line is that this is a very talented running back that has the chops to play for any program in the country.

Player he reminds me of: Darrell Scott (Colorado - 2008)
Current offers: Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri and Virginia
Current LSR Rating: 5.7
Previous ranking: 54
Highest ranking: 54 (1/12/11)
Debut ranking: 54 (1/13/11)

Exciting news. Great to see Williams get on board (He was starting to receive some major attention from other big, out-of-state schools like Michigan and Notre Dame).

The 2012 class has the potential to be a huge one for the Tigers. I'm not going to hold my breath on Dorial Green, but there is a lot of big-time talent on the board.

My next hope is Ohio QB Maty Mauk. Hopefully, he escapes South Bend, Ind. without a commitment this weekend...

He's spent a lot of time in Norman and is considered to be leaning towards the Sooners.

Honestly, I think if Missouri was picking between Mauk and Kiel, it would prefer Kiel. Better chance at Mauk, though, from what I've heard on PowerMizzou (main comp is Notre Dame).

Who knows for sure on Green? He's got everybody after him.

Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Alabama are the schools you hear the most. I think Ole Miss might be a school to worry about, too. His younger brother has cancer and is being treated in Memphis. Oxford is very close. I think that makes them a factor.

I'd probably lean towards Oklahoma at this time, but the family played it very close to the vest prior to the diagnosis for the little brother. And has been silent since the diagnosis.

He's a hell of a talent, though. Just going to be a lot of competition for him.

Williams is a nice get and an interesting one, IMO. He doesn't look like the kind of runner we normally go after. He's more of a straight ahead runner...not shifty like Lawrence or Moore. Combine that with the reports from spring ball about changes to the running game and it peaks my interest. Anyways, good to have him.

I've always thought a powerful runner would work better in this scheme.

We run our splits so wide that we spread out the line. Well all that does is make it more difficult to get the edge. One would think it would serve to soften up the interior a bit though in that it pulls the D-lineman out wide.

So if you can have a big body make one cut and explode through the thinned out d-line, that would seem to be more effective than a jitterbug like Josey or Lawrence trying to make 3 guys miss on his way to the corner.

Saul Good

Our splits aren't nearly as wide as they were a few years ago. That may be a function of having Blaine Gabbert versus Chase Daniel, though. We will have a shorter QB next year. I don't know if that means the splits will open up again, though.

It could also have been a function of watching the big ol' boys on the OU and TX lines pushing our shit in straight up the middle.

Or Yost being incapable of running the offense as Christiansen designed it, so it was watered down to make Yost's tiny little pea-sized brain capable of understanding it. BUBBLE SCREEN FOR THE MOTHAFUCKING WIN!!

They also had a really nice piece on Missouri football on the ESPN Draft Special (or something like that) yesterday evening. Pinkel was interviewed and they talked mostly about Gabbert. Prior to that, Egnew was discussed as one of the top returning TEs in the country.

The positive publicity for MU football has been incredible.

NCAA
Will Tyler Gabbert’s Transfer Affect the Missouri Tigers?
Hank Koebler
By Hank Koebler
NFL Writer
May 9th, 2011

Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel announced Monday morning that redshirt freshman quarterback Tyler Gabbert will transfer next year.

Gabbert, whose older brother Blaine was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, left to pursue what his father Chuck described to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as “an opportunity to compete and vie for a starting position.”

“There are other factors that went into this decision that we’re not going to discuss with the press,” Chuck Gabbert told the Columbia Missourian’s Dave Matter.

The Post-Dispatch’s article listed Nebraska, where Gabbert initially committed, and Louisville, where former Nebraska offensive coordinator Shawn Watson is the quarterbacks coach, as the most likely landing spots for Gabbert.

Wherever Gabbert transfers, NCAA rules will render him ineligible to play for another year. For Gabbert to sacrifice a year of eligibility just for a chance to start suggests that he didn’t think he had a very good shot of beating rising sophomore James Franklin for the starting position. Although Gabbert was a local media favorite, the results of Missouri’s spring Black and Gold scrimmage made it clear that Franklin was too good to sit on the bench.

While Gabbert’s playing style very closely resembles that of his older brother, there are some minor differences as well. For example, Tyler has a much better (and quicker) release than Blaine, but is slightly less accurate. Both players have similar straight-line speed, but Tyler’s acceleration, though not impressive, is a bit better than Blaine’s.

Where both players are most similar, and where Franklin is far superior, is their pocket presence. The Gabbert brothers both continue to drop farther back in the pocket when pressured, and eventually tend to get forced out of the pocket too far behind the line of scrimmage to pick up yards with a scramble. Franklin does a much better job stepping up in the pocket, allowing him to evade rushers and, if necessary, tuck the ball and run.

In the Black and Gold game, Franklin started on the second-team offense, and completed 13 of 18 passes for two touchdowns and no interceptions. Gabbert, who started on the first-team offense, completed 8 of 22 passes for no touchdowns and the game’s only interception. The statistics show a stark difference in the two quarterbacks’ level of performance, but watching the game made it even more apparent. Despite having an assortment of skill-position players such as T.J. Moe and Wes Kemp, the Tigers’ first-string offense was stagnant, but the second-string team offense moved the ball well. When Franklin was inserted into the first-string lineup, he immediately provided a jump-start, completing 5 of 7 passes for 57 yards and a touchdown on his first drive with the first-string offense.

One area of Franklin’s game that will greatly help the Tigers’ offense take the next step and become more multidimensional. They moved the ball well last year, but struggled with finishing drives and scoring from within the red zone. A large part of Missouri’s redzone struggles last season stemmed from an inability to run in the red zone. The Tigers’ offensive system frequently uses zone reads, and although Blaine Gabbert was fast enough to pick up the occasional first down with his legs on broken passing plays, he lacked the initial burst and acceleration to be a dangerous threat when keeping the ball on zone read plays. With Franklin’s speed, defenses will have to account for two different runners, both heading in opposite directions, when either one could have the ball. The run game will improve tremendously as a result of Franklin’s speed, which will eventually cause defenses to commit fewer players to pass defense in order to stop the run.

While it’s far too early to speculate on Franklin’s potential for an NFL career, it is not to early to say that he has the potential to have a better college career than Blaine Gabbert did. In fact, with his speed and his arm, Franklin is the ideal fit for Missouri’s system, and could become even more exciting of a player than former Missouri quarterback Brad Smith. Between the spring game performances of Franklin and rising sophomore Ashton Glaser, who displayed laser-like accuracy, there is great depth at Missouri’s quarterback position, and the Tigers won’t miss a beat after losing both of the Gabbert brothers.

Kiel is a legit pro style QB and is a top 20 overall prospect like Gabbert was. He has the talent to be a top 10 draft pick in a few years.

Mauk is shattering high school passing records in a spread offense tailored for him, but like Daniel his height will keep him from being a 1st round draft pick and an elite 5 star prospect out of high school.

What is crazy is that we have had our success the last 5 years or so with only mid-level talent. If we step up our recruiting level, we could be in for a very nice run.

I thought Mizzou would land only one of the DGB, Kiel, Neal trio, but landing all three is a decent possibility.

OU is consensus preseason #1. OU, OSU, and A&M will be ranked ahead of Mizzou to start the year. Remember, we just lost our 1st round draft pick QB. We will still be top 20 to start the year though.

OU is consensus preseason #1. OU, OSU, and A&M will be ranked ahead of Mizzou to start the year. Remember, we just lost our 1st round draft pick QB. We will still be top 20 to start the year though.

Passive aggressive flaming comes off weak when it is not even accurate.

I see eight wins

a loss (at OU)

and three others that are up for grabs (at aTm, oSu, at ASU)

Assuming Franklin ends up being pretty good. I am giving Pinkel benefit of the doubt there based on his track record but obviously it remains to be seen.

Eight wins is a negative outlook. We are going to pound A&M like Pinkel always does. I don't buy into their type. Their QB was mediocre against everyone but the patsies.

The biggest question for MU is not Franklin, but depth at DT and LB. I think we have much better depth at DT this year, and that should help us quite a bit as the season goes on.

Nine wins at a minimum with a very good shot at another double digit win season.

I'm getting less optimistic about this because Sheldon Richardson still hasn't qualified. IMO, if he had, the staff would be jumping for joy and making announcements. It may just be my negativity, but I don't see him ever suiting up for the Tigers.

Perhaps I wasn't articulate enough. I am not predicting 8 wins.

I see 8 games I expect to win.
I see 3 others that could go either way (They aren't losing or winning all 3 of those).

And then of course OU, which I expect us to lose down there.

Which leaves me at 9 or 10 wins, same as you.

Franklin is the most important question at the most important position considering the offense.

Yeap, I misunderstood. I am in the same boat as you as far as wins.

A new QB would normally be my top concern except for a few things.

Pinkel has done a great job with his QBs where ever he has coached. That earns him some trust. We also appear to finally have a good defense. Franklin also has some great tools at his disposal.

1) One of the top OLs in the Big 12. Both guards and tackles are returning from last season. Hoch and Fisher will be three year starters.

2) A stable of capable running backs. There probably isn't a Daniel Thomas in this group, but our first four RBs all averaged over five yards a carry last season.

1) A pair of fantastic possession receivers. This will be a huge boon for the young QB.

Gabbert had some great performances last season, but overall it was a pretty average season. That was in part due to our defense. Chase Daniel had to go into every game with the mentality that he had to score on every possession to guarantee a win. Gabbert had some mediocre performances last season, but the opposing team couldn't score, so it didn't matter a whole lot.

If Hamilton, Ebner, and Lambert clog up the middle as they did last season before the injuries started to mount, our defense should have another great season. If our defense takes a step back, the pressure will build on Franklin to take over games, and we will be in trouble.

He's a nice get, but he'd have been a worse loss, if that makes any sense.

This is the kind of kid that we can't lose from in-state if we have any hope of being a consistently strong program. He's local, he fits our scheme and he plays a position where we'll need talent soon so he's not going to have PT issues if he's any good. To have lost out on him to a program like Arkansas would have said some pretty lousy stuff about the program.

Getting him locked up is kinda like KC winning that Buffalo game last season: I'm glad we got the win, but mostly relived that we didn't take the loss.

Still glad to have him though, you can never have too many athletic linebackers. MU may be considered a "QB school" at this point, but we're not doing too bad for ourselves with LBs, DEs or WRs at this point either. MU is absolutely a place where a LB can go to make a name for himself and play at the next level. I think the fact that we're bringing in **** recruits with more regularity speaks to that.

There's a nice pickup.

The backcourt desperately lacked athletes with legitimate size. A 6'5'' 2 guard to play alongside the Presseys and Dixons in the program will be a huge help.

He also progressed a great deal down the stretch last year. I wonder if they won't try to get him some minutes at the 3 (with both Pressey and Denmon on the floor with him; maybe slide Kim down to an undersized 4...EDIT: Scratch that, Kim will be gone by the time the 1 year wait is over)

ESPN Eval on Brice:

Brice is a tall and rangy cornerback prospect with the height, length and athleticism out on the perimeter that is coveted. Could be falling under the radar at this time due to those attributes. Speed is good not great but he pursues and closes fast. Instinctive, understands coverages and is versatile in both man and zone schemes. As an underneath defender he reads the quarterback accurately, levels off and soundly anticipates the pass. Quick out of his breaks and does a very good job jumping routes and closing the cushion fast. Flashes good first-step burst out of pedal. Needs to sharpen his footwork and become cleaner transitioning but he can flip his hips and turn to run with faster receivers in man and recovery quickly with inside positioning aided by his good arm length. Best asset may be his jump-ball defense skills. This guy is an athletic leaper who does a great job with the timing of his jump. Positions himself correctly between the ball and demonstrates great high-point and ball skills. Needs to continue filling out but is active and aggressive on perimeter run and pass support and shows some pop from his hips as a tackler. Shows solid strength breaking the stalk block and overall good underneath pursuit speed and range. We do feel like he will need to continue building upper-body strength and add size to remain effective as an underneath player, in press, for positioning on the jump-ball and if he makes the transition to safety where his speed and hips may be better suited. Would like to see him sharpen his footwork and become smoother working out of a pedal. Has some areas to refine. Overall, Brice is still an underrated defensive back prospect with the good blend of size, range and athleticism that is currently being overlooked on the recruiting trail.

Sounds like he'd be a great FS.

It still seems a little surprising to me that everyone's this fired up about getting a guard/center.

I guess it speaks to an understanding of what our program needs, but it still seems strange to me that after years upon years of seeing "Get interior lineman late in the draft!!!" during the draft threads, some folks are about ready to pee themselves at the prospect of getting an in-state guard prospect.

Great player, one of the premier gets in our class, but ultimately he's still just a guard on a team that doesn't utilize the interior power game that much.

Just a strange bit of euphoria, that's all. People seem more excited about who we took him away from (Neb, ND, etc...) than what he'll actually do for Mizzou.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited to see us locking up our borders and keeping most of our premier talent.

I've only been a little surprised by the degree of excitement he has brought with him. I mean getting Boehm is not quite even to the level of getting Hoch (who was considered a better talent when we stole him out of Iowa). Ultimately Hoch has been a very nice lineman for us, but has anyone considered him a guy that's going to make/break us?

Again - very happy and I'm loving where the program is going. It's just that the excitement level for this particular player seems a little beyond what I would have expected.

I could be wrong, but I think some of that was magnified recently by Neal committing to OU, and OU presumably being one of the major players in Boehm's recruitment. Just a guess though.

I don't think any one player makes or breaks us. However, a lot of people feel that the reason we never got over the hump against OU and TX during the Chase Daniel years was because we couldn't match up with them at O-line and D-line. Little by little, we are starting to see the talent gap decrease.

I think we are going to begin to see more pro-style elements in our offense, and it starts with getting talent like Boehm, Demien, etc. and RBs like Williams and Steward.

Also, Boehm was long considered an OU lean, and only recently did people think he may commit to us. There would probably be a bit less excitement if people thought he was in the bag for awhile. Beating OU after the Neal fiasco is also nice.

Well, from what I have read, Neal's committment may follow the path of Sheldon's in the sense of really enjoying the process. Doesn't mean he will come to Mizzou, but he might not end up at OU either.

As far as DGB, well, I am not even getting my hopes up even though Mizzou is in the mix.

Boehm is a HUGE, HUGE get. For a lot of reasons:

1) He's the best in-state offensive linemen. Gotta lock those up.

2) They beat Oklahoma for his services. Even though he was LONG considered an OU lean (kind of like Neal for Mizzou).

3) It makes a strong statement that OU can't just come in and take whoever it wants.

4) He apparently is pretty good friends with Gunner Kiel. Can only help.

5) Can never have too many good offensive linemen.

Gunner Kiel would be the biggest statement ever made by Pinkel's staff in recruiting. Bigger than Gabbert, bigger than Richardson. Beating OU, Bama, Michigan for a kid from Indiana... wow. That would be amazing.

From Pitt's article:

He plays in an up-tempo style of offense at West High School (under his father and coach, Royce Boehm) that is similar to the one the Tigers run under coach Gary Pinkel. He hopes that will help him see the field early once he enrolls at Missouri.

I also expect we will see more pro style sets in the next couple years given the personnel we are recruiting and the comments made by insiders such as Dave Matter.

Jonathan Williams and Morgan Steward are both big, more pro style backs, rather than the typical scat back type RB we usually recruit; Gunner Kiel is a pro style QB, etc.

Anyone going to the Kansas - Missouri HS All Star game tomorrow??

ww.examiner.net/sports/x1732979565/Rival-states-best-to-clash-on-the-gridiron-Thursday

The 19th annual Greater Kansas City Football Coaches Association Country Mart Kansas vs. Missouri High School Football All-Star Game will be played at 8 p.m. Thursday at Southwick Stadium on the campus of Belton High School.

The annual game features all-star seniors from the rival states with Kansas holding an 11-7 series lead. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students (with student ID).

Area players who will participate in the game are Blue Springs’ Tyshaan Alleyne, Jon Trocosso, Myles Hicks, Cory Phillips and Lewis Foutz; Blue Springs South’s Jacob Moore, Logan Adkison and James McDonald; Lee’s Summit North’s T.J. Semke and Andrew Baggett; and Fort Osage’s Shayne Parsons.

“We are really pleased to have the Belton School District host the game this season,” GKCFCA president and Baldwin High School coach Mike Berg said. “We have had tremendous support from high school football fans over the years, and with this year’s game to be played in a city that is well known for its passion for high school football like Belton is fantastic. We expect the event to be outstanding this year.”

The Kansas squad will be coached by Louisburg’s Gary Griffin. The Missouri squad will be coached by Greg Jones of Kearney.

The game will be televised at 7 p.m. on a tape delay by KSMO Channel 62 on Saturday, June 18. All proceeds from this year’s game will be donated to the Joplin High School football program. Joplin was recently hit by a tornado that devastated much of the community and destroyed the high school.

“I think it would be great to see all our great area high school football fans come out to Belton to watch a great game, cheer on the Missouri team and help the people in Joplin,” GKCFCA co-director Tony Wrisinger said. “This event just gets bigger and better every year, and we can’t wait for Thursday night.”

Mauk has family in Springfield. Hmmmmm ... Wonder if he will stop down there to "bend it" while he's in the neighborhood.

I know its been said before, but this really does seem like Chase Daniel versus Blaine Gabbert. I'm torn on which I'd rather have, but there is no downside either way.

After seeing that video again the Chase Daniel comparison sunk in way more.

We could be picking between Quinn Mecham and Jordan Webb!

I think you might be onto something. Here's the latest tweet from Power Mizzou:

With rumors about Kiel and DGB's "relationship", the commitment of Mauk to #Mizzou might have more impact on DGB. More later at PowerMizzou.

Apparently there's a rumor floating around that Mauk and DGB hung out yesterday in Springfield and tossed the ball around.

What is the "relationship" between Kiel and DGB?

There's something I really really like about that video: Watch his head when he's on the move.

Once Gabbert started moving, his head went to the rushers and the space in front of him. He was looking to scramble or simply avoid getting blasted. As a result of that, I think he started feeling more phantom pressure as well.

Mauk appears to have a great innate feel for the pocket. He's constantly looking downfield when he's moving around. Look at how many plays he started moving around in, only to stop and fire 20-25 yards down the field. His ability to keep an eye on the 2nd level while moving as opposed to the area immediately around him created a lot of yards and points for his offense.

Maybe it's just a product of HS tapes, but that seems to be something you either do or you don't. If you don't have that feel for the pocket, you're not likely to just acquire it.

He's a very nice consolation prize.

It is interesting. Usually even with good players unless its a RB a lot of those HS vids look pretty "meh". I was way impressed with his athleticism and vision in those highlights.

Exciting.

Another couple of things:

The play at the 45 second mark made me JIMP. He got hammered to deliver that ball and it was nails.

That offense is very very similar to ours. That middle screen he runs at 1:35(ish) is straight out of the "get Martin Rucker drafted" playbook.

He moves to his left a lot. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. While it's nice to see a kid that can go to both sides of the field on the move, I'm pretty damn sure I don't want him throwing across the field or across his body against DI defenders. He'll get pick-6ed a dozen times against OU doing that. I think it's a nice club to have in his bag, but he needs to do it less often, IMO.

I'm also not sure I'm in love with his throwing motion. He seems to pull back quick and whip it from about 3/4. It's really apparent at about 2:09 and 2:15. He reminds me of a middle-infielder more than a QB. He has that shortstop throw that you'll see those guys develop to speed up their mechanics. I think that could lead to some trouble with deflected passes or balls sailing on him if he's under duress.

But again, the best part about him is that he seems like he's generally running in order to buy time to pass, as opposed to Gabbert who would break the offense and bolt too easily. I don't think that can be taught and I love seeing it. I'm loathe to go to the "Daniel v. Gabbert" stuff because it seems cliched, but there really is a lot of Daniel in that boy, especially with the fact that he ran a similar offense in HS.

There seemed to be talk that those two were talking about their recruiting experiences with a possible desire to go to the same place in some sort of Lebron\Wade situation.

Today I read from Gabe DeArmond that those talks never happened. So wtf knows really.

As for Mauk’s personal strengths, his coach broke them down in four categories.

“Number one is his leadership skills,” he said, "his ability to communicate with the other 10 guys he’s playing with and what they’re doing … the rhythm of the offense and the tempo we set and getting the plays in so we’re all on the same page. He has good leadership skills in our conditioning and preparation. That’s the first thing.

“Second is arm strength. He has the ability to make every throws that’s necessary in our offense. A lot of things aren’t just drop back, step and throw. Sometimes you’ve got to avoid a guy or do it on the run in pressure situations. And he’s able to deliver the ball to our receivers.

“Number three would be he’s a pretty physical player as a quarterback. He runs hard. He has good physical skills as well.

“The fourth and probably most significant thing is his accuracy. He puts the ball where he wants it to be. That’s from a lot of practice and repetition.”
