QUESTION: G.J. Kinne is a big-time Texas prospect, what have you seen from G.J. Kinne that makes him such a hot commodity, and what do you feel Baylor's chances of landing a kid like this are?
ANSWER:I think Kinne is headed to Baylor. I think he'll look
around certainly, but
his dad being at Baylor is just too much to overcome
for other schools. He's
got a great arm and has good accuracy. He's been well
coached and is great
in the pocket, but unlike some other quarterbacks he
is a threat once he
begins to scramble as well. He's certainly a drop back
guy and not a dual
threat type, but he is athletic enough to pose a
threat on the ground. The
one knock on him that I have heard is his height. He
is not the 6-foot-3
that is listed, but closer to 6-foot. Still though, he
is one of the top
five quarterbacks in the state and would be a huge
pickup for the Bears.
QUESTION: Romie Blaylock (Cedar Hill, TX) was at the
in Waco, Texas and looked really good during
one-on-one drills. He is also a track guy. Can
shed some light on how he has compared to the
this year that you have seen at combines or in
ANSWER: This is a great year for receivers in the state of
Texas. There are plenty
of the good, big wide outs and the smaller slot guys.
Blaylock obviously is
a slot guy. He has great hands and good speed. He
plays much faster than
anything that would show up in a 40 time. He's also
very elusive and hard to
grab a hold of, which makes him a big play threat
every time he touches the
QUESTION: David Gettis was a big signee for Baylor last
he didn't get past the clearinghouse, but
with Baylor this year. Gettis played in the
All-American game in San Antonio as well. Can
describe what he brings to the field?
ANSWER: Gettis is a bigger kid with super speed and one of the
best prospects the
Bears have signed in years. He has all the makings of
a super star if he
picks up the system well and could be a quick
contributor. The one thing
about him is that he has been considered more of a
track guy than a football
guy and sometimes they haven't panned out on the
college level. However,
from what I have seen of Gettis he isn't scared to
take a hit and has good
hands. I think he's a player that has NFL potential.
