Notre Dame Commit Gets Injured
The biggest news was not good news. Torii Hunter Jr. went down with what looked to be a left leg injury. It was tough to make out what the injury was, but it was severe enough that he looked to be in tremendous pain and the training staff put him in an air cast, carted him off the field and hooked him up to an IV. On the bright side, initial feedback is a qud injury and it does not appear to be a torn ACL or broken bone.
Notre Dames fans can be excited about its other legacy commit as WR Corey Robinson had the best catch by any receiver of all practice sessions pulling in a long pass down the sidelines and making a great adjustment to the ball in the air.
LSU Commit Locks Down
Tre'Davious White continues to shine. Some comments were made that he may be too small to lock down and press bigger receievers, but he had little trouble locking down and staying with the biggest of them all in Derrick Griffin. He seemed to be matched up with him every time in the one-on-one reps and proved that he could lock him down. He also had one of the days best defensive plays with an interception that may have been returned for a TD in a game situation.
Running Backs Go Hard
Thomas Tyner and the grouping of running backs continue to impress. Thomas Tyner, who has been known for his speed has great size to him. He is a plant his foot in the ground and go runner, but also has great hands and gives the appearance that he could be a physical presence. Justin Davis, Altee Tenpenny and Ezekiel Elliott round out the group and all of them have star quality as well.
Defensive Line Reigns
The interior defensive line continues to run roughshod over the offensive line in one-on-one and even team drills. Eddie Vanderdoes had a real strong day. He is quick on the rush and uses his great hips to maneuver around linemen and get great positioning and finishes with authority. Justin Manning continues to give offensive linemen fits with his combo of size and speed, he fires off the ball low and quick.
