The other members of the scholarship freshman class and newcomers either reported at the start of the spring semester or for the first semester of summer school.
Ramacher is not as thick as I thought he would be but he is very athletic. Blake Webb looks ready to go and jumped in with the offense to take his reps on the first night he was involved in metabolics. Brantley appears to need conditioning help to get ready for the upcoming fall camp, but that is the good thing as he will get that throughout the month of July.
He also seemed very confident throughout the metabolic workout as he shared directing the offense with fellow quarterbacks Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh. Lunt throws the ball really well and seems to have worked on his consistency with where he delivers the ball on certain routes. His slant routes all go waist high. His out routes go up and to the outside shoulder of the receiver.
According to Moore, the newcomers are all pretty good, and I got a good indication of that watching four guys in particular that show up well. C.J. Curry and Brandon Sheperd each run good routes and each shows good hands.
Curry caught up to a deep route in drills and made a snag catch of the back half of the football. It was a pretty athletic play. Sheperd appears to do things very easily.
Jhajuan Seales is also a receiver that will wow the coaches some when camp starts as he has a nice burst and also makes catches. A receiver that will surprise and looks like he might earn playing time this fall is Austin Hays. The 6-2 product out of San Antonio has put on some weight since arriving, runs really well, and has good hands. The receiver class looks good.
Offensive tackle Parker Graham complained about being listed at 295 pounds in the last issue of Go Pokes Magazine. He said he is 315 pounds now. The great thing is the 6-7 Graham is at 315, but he looks 295. There are no guts on the linemen which means Rob Glass is winning his professorial battle of the budge as the Cowboys master of strength and conditioning.
