Monday Notes
I had some notes and wanted to put them in an article, but I'm still a bullet point guyConnor Galvin played well despite having a fingers taped together due to an injury against Texas Southern. If anyone has injured their hand and then has to use it in a week, there is pain, but the likely future NFL draftee showed his toughness and played without issue. Siaki Ika has been a lightning rod of sorts with some on the board not understanding the position and Apu hasn't done the best job early with his conditioning and play vs. Texas State and suspension for team rules violation against Texas Southern. Saturday started to show what he is capable of with some excellent disruption and controlling the middle. The issue isn't his talent, it is conditioning. Being far from home, he had gained bad weight and was closer to 400 against Texas State than his listed weight. He's dropped close to 30 pounds since then and you saw a difference in his play. Once he gets near the 330-340 range, the conditioning will be better as will his play. Garmon Randolph got his first run of the season and the 6-7 JACK was disruptive in his limited time on the field. He was the projected starter before an injury and this has forced Matt Jones to JACK despite having little time in Fall at the position. Anthony Anyanwu was starting at JACK before a fracture in his lower leg sidelined him after the last scrimmage. He's expected to return in 2-4 weeks and the defense will get another boost with his return.Raleigh Texada is lonely and I don't remember Kansas throwing his way in the game. AJ McCarty seemed to replace him when the subs came in, so it will be interesting if he has moved ahead of Mark Milton or the camera work was just ESPN+

Practice Notes: The Strength Of The Defense?
I know Ashley and Colt have their notes coming as well, but I had a surprising note come to me. It was about the secondary being the strength of practice so far. There could be some negative stances on this, but there are also sources saying the WRs have stepped it up during practice and Tyquan Thornton is standing out with his new size and strength on display. RJ Sneed remains reliable and makes every catch, but all are being blanketed by the secondary and the instruction of Kevin Curtis. Brian Stewart raised the bar and Curtis has run with it. The attention to watching film in the DB room is among the best on the team and it is paying off. The CBs are able to keep their heads inside during an outside press with their speed.Raleigh Texada continues to be leader at CB and best on the field. Kalon Barnes has a little more height, but is still in his progression as a CB. He has the physical tools, but he can get his feet flipped at times on breaks, which leads to open receivers where he has to rely on athleticism to make the play. Chateau Reed is the surprise as he continues to do things he shouldn't be able to do at his size and youth. Extreme athlete is what one person told me. AJ McCarty is still growing into the position, but will see time on the field early in the season to get ready for conference play. He as the speed and strength, but needs to trust technique. Alfahiym Walcott is another big CB moved from safety that is pushing Barnes and will see the field matched up on outside big WRs. Byron Hanspard and Brandon White are the two running 3rd now. White continues to move from CB and S and back after his injury. Mark Milton continues to improve as well and could slide to safety in an emergency. Zeke Brown, now on scholarship, isn't going to hurt you.Christian Morgan is up to 215 and ready for a breakout. Physicality has never been an issue and his athleticism is still there at this weight. JT Woods is also close to 200 and his length is allowing him to get to balls and make it more difficult for QBs to go over him. Mike Harris continues to improve and gain strength. Jairon McVea is solid and better in his new role and understands the entire secondary. Devin Neal is backing up Morgan and able to step in as a starter in 2022. Neal is not afraid of contact and improving in coverage and understanding of the defese. Walk-on Colby Delashaw returns from an ACL injury this season and has added good weight. He likely would have played last year before the injury on the final play in 2020 fall camp. Don't be surprised if he gets on the field against Texas State and Texas Southern besides special teams. Jalen Pitre, Lorando Johnson, Jr., and Devin Lemear are all going to make an impact, but I see them as more LB than S, but each has coverage skills and the ability to stop a TE or slot and as Mims from OU found out, don't think it'll be easy for you on a slip screen.Tevin Williams, Cisco Caston, Romario Noel, are built like Reed, Walcott, and Woods, and as athletic.

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a SicEm365 rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the SicEm365 Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide SicEm365 readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.
