    Great pick up! He is ranked way too low imo. This is a top 3 linebacker in this year's class with huge upside. Inside, outside, can play in space. Delivers the wood with attitude! Welcome to LBU!

    Kirby gets what he "wants", now. He can afford to be selective. 3.5 GPA and, Son of a Minister...fits the culture.

    I remember a time when they would've jumped on that former 5-star LB that was just booted from the Clemson Tigers, by Dabo. Instead...he's going to Ole Miss. Hell...Kiffin probably doesn't have any "Rules" for him to break, there. Lol

    I think this kid could be a leader with his character, and that is a very good thing!

    Was hoping we'd get him!

    Missed on Riddick, scored on Jones.....not a dimes worth of difference physically but a universe of "star" potential come year two, three and four and it's all about mental maturity.....IMO, Kris will develop into a much higher NFL draft pick than Riddick and at that point those HS Stars will be like flat dry prom corsage. Kris definitely demonstrates DGD potential.....it still scares me that he also runs the ball!!!!! It'd take an elephant gun and brick wall to stop that!

    Jones said. “I feel like I get a little lazy on that but that’s most definitely something I will get better at.”

    this quote tells me his character and determination. He can self assess his strengths and weaknesses and will be very coachable. This young man will be a DGD

    Solid addition. High ceiling and, seemingly, priorities straight.

    Another preemptive strike? CKS has a pattern of when he releases commitment info. CKS softened the blow of the Riddick flip by announcing the addition of Williams a few days before. So make another commitment announcement a few days before the KJ Bolden announcement?

    I beleive that is why Frazier is committing the day after KJ fwiw. Yes, Kirby is very tactical in when guys commit. It's called being a consummate professional.

    Whether KJ comes or not we will all be happy in the next 2 weeks I'm sure.

    Tactical is a good word. I was thinking strategic. Consummate professional or keeping fanatics from losing their minds?

    UGA has a good shot at Frazier. He would be an excellent addition. I was surprised how fast he was in his highlight reel. Still not sure how UGA can fit much more in this class. Giving up on Nwaneri and probably Bolden. Top players want to be paid up front. Changing recruiting to a pick a few of the best and develop the rest game.

    AU is trying to be this years aTm w/how much money they are spending. NIL rules can't come soon enough.

    AL/CNS still a little puzzling how they are lagging. AL always closes strong but may take a a different approach with CNS's time running out. May focus more on cherry picking plug and play "stars" out of the TP. Win now mentality. HOWEVER, I believe, the Tuberville NIL/TP "law" calls for immediate transfer eligibility to begin only aster year 3.

    I think we get Frazier, Breland, LJ, and Cole. Might pick up Kam later.

    Think we miss on KJ and Nwaneri. Auburn stole another good one and Oklahoma has a bunch of Nwaneri's buddies playing for them so that combined with NIL is too much for us to beat.

    If we get Breland and LJ we will be more than ok. The KJ thing is tough to swallow but we will need to make it a priority to pick up a big time safety next year or get someone out of the portal.
