Say goodbye Kelvin McKnight and hello A J Toney. It might be a little premature to credit Toney with the talent of Kelvin, but there are similarities.
247Sports listed Toney as a 3*** just like McKnight, and Toney has at least 7 FBS offers. The Jackson Olin standout is a fine addition to the Bulldog roster. He just announced his commitment today and here's hoping it is a final decision.

Watched some of his highlights. He could play early. He appears to have a lot of McKnight like qualities in the open field. I didn’t really pay that much attention to his hands. McKnight caught the ball as well as anyone I have ever seen play at any level.

One more to add is a big 6-4, 240 TE also a local kid. This one is a 2** rated player. Chose us over a couple of FBS offers and over JSU. :D

I state this with relative certainty: No one will be happier about this commit than my son will be when I tell him tonight. Vice is one of his favs--we had to instruct the boy not to fist-bump Vice after big plays while running balls on the field this year as a ballboy at VH. Vice was one of his coaches at VHHS basketball camp for the past two years. When we showed up for the first scrimmage this summer so the boy could be "trained," he walked straight up to Vice and they did some sort of two-step handshake they'd concocted during the summer. Vice called him by name and he treated him like a teammate. Michael Vice is the kind of kid we want at SU and in the football program.

QB of the future? I usually don't watch all of the HUDL videos, but this was 5 minutes that I couldn't let go of. I have mentioned this kid before, but now his senior year highlights video is out. Thought I was watching Devlin LOL. This Samford commit's dad is an assistant coach at Troy, and Cade has literally been raised on the gridiron.

By way of update, I told the boy about Vice's commitment and he wore his SU shirt to school on Thursday in his honor.

Fast and shifty. Forty reported at 4.4.

My observation is that if he runs a 4.4, there are a bunch of dbs who are running 4.41. 4.4 is crazy fast. I’ll have to wait to see it in person to believe it. Looks good, but . . . .

Big DT will have official visit to Samford this Friday. Has good ACT and GPA. Stiff competition for his services.

Aforementioned QB Cade Blackmon is graduating HS this month, and will become a Samford student athlete next month.
