With the first weekend of games in the books, it’s time to look at some recruits and a new format in the future. Since the season has started, I’m going to change this column to focus more on the actual games that happen. Not a week in review thing but more of a good, bad and ugly look at that weekend’s games. There was plenty of each this weekend, such as the collapses of Oregon State and Notre Dame and LSU’s big win over Oregon. That’ll be coming next week. I will probably add in a recruit or two to keep the recruiting theme going, especially if there are big ones.

Pros: A very big guy with a big wingspan he uses to engulf defenders and tackle opponents, uses his size to get into the offensive backfield, adept at both pass rush and run defense
