House Money - 2019 PWO Edition

Recommended Posts

Great thread, I like the greater importance on a PWO program.  We need to do this every year, we can still talk about PWOs in the main thread but this is a good commitment place holder that can be referenced.

My one suggestion is to rename the thread “2019 PWO commits” offers can go in the main thread but this should be reserved for the ones that are here to stay.

I have heard of Preferred Walk-Ons before but what is going on here seems new somehow...or have we been getting these guys forever and they just never publicized it before? Because this seems exciting. One and Two star guys who can come in and fill up the practice squad and maybe a few of them might be contributors down the road.

Damn. We got a modern day Marshall Faulk to be a PWO? Granted the original Marshall Faulk had to play at SDSU so maybe he would have been a PWO back in 1990.

We now treat our PWO's like any other member of the program, they are not excluded from any activities and receive the benefits of being on the team. Sounds simple but many programs struggle or flat ignore them.

With how difficult it is to get into our school now, this only makes sense. SoMe and our staffs attention to detail with edits make it easier for us to become aware.

There’s something weirdly similar about these guys, I can’t quite place what it is.

Coaches on the field? Non Youth & Community Studies majors? Potential BMD family members? High floor-low ceiling prospects?

They will be keeping Bru McCoy company on the practice squad if he has to sit out a year?

They all bear a disturbing resemblance to Ed McCaffrey?

The PWO program seems like a huge potential benefit to the program. Guys like Hunter Renfrow at Clemson have gone from PWOs to starters and major contributors. Wouldn’t be surprised for us to eventually hit the lottery like that as well.

So this Parker Alford character has the fastest shuttle in the nation, sub-4.6 laser timed 40, and 2000 yards / 20 TD his senior year and didn’t get any offers? ifeellikeimtakingcrazypills.gif

I literally LOL'd a few times watching Bush's tape. If nothing else it's going to be fun watching him on special teams. He looks like Sandler in The Waterboy.

Maybe he hit on all the visiting coaches' wives and daughters...?

I'm glad Charlie brought the PWO program back from the dead but like all things Charlie it got Charlied.

Herman is getting really good players.  I'm not sure why some of these guys don't have offers from UNT or Rice

Coach is obviously making our PWO program a priority since we are getting kids with options deciding to join our program. 

We just need David Neil to join us.

First up is Jett, a combo of Ray Lewis and Luke Kuechly https://247sports.com/Player/Jett-Bush-46055186/

 

Great thread idea. Why did it take someone like Goodman to think of it?

He was a PWO last year?  How have I not heard this kids name?  That was amazing vision and impressive speed on his tape. 

The fact that he is only 4' 2" may have something to do with it.

Not only contribute, but start. Every time we play a team on the level of Air Force or New Mexico State, there are one or two players who I’d gladly trade for one of our starters.

Guys like that have never been a problem for Texas defenses. Do not want.

Do PWO’s count towards a team’s gpa? If so this could partially explain why so many of these guys have great academics. It makes it much easier to hit the minimum ncaa requirements.

Pretty sure they have to qualify for admission under normal criteria and that yes, they do count toward academic standards

247 had an article about the star rankings of the Superbowl starters. Amazing how many 3 star and lower guys there was. Malcolm or is it Malcom Brown was either the highest or 2nd highest rated recruit on either team. I believer there was as many unrated guys as there was 4 stars. Nebraska used to have a ton of these guys. The average star ranking for the Patriots was like 2.64.
