Marsh’s Mailbag: Who Stood Out Most During Spring, Miami Defense, And Underrated Canes.

How likely is it Miami goes to the transfer portal for linebackers? And can the Canes defense be dominant again this year? With the injuries to Waynmon Steed and Bradley Jennings Jr., how likely do you think it is we bring in a linebacker or two via the portal? I wrote an article about this last Sunday, and talked about some potential linebackers Miami could bring in from the transfer portal, such as Rahyme Johnson from UCLA. Canes have a depth problem at the linebacker position. I took a look at a few possible options within the transfer portal. https://t.co/WVVxcgRxe5—...

2019 NFL Draft: Texas LG Patrick Vahe scouting report

The four-year starter developed notably last season under Herb Hand, but he’ll require further polish before he’s ready to suit up in the NFL. Throughout the course of his four-year-tenure with the Texas Longhorns, offensive guard Patrick Vahe registered 45 starts in 48 career appearances. After going through some ups-and-downs regarding his performance on the field and battling various injuries throughout his first three seasons, Vahe excelled in his one year under first-year co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Herb Hand. He started in all 14 games and was named an All-Big...

Thursday Quickies: Jemarl Baker Edition

Baker is now in the transfer portal after two years at Kentucky The biggest news of the day yesterday was that Kentucky guard Jemarl Baker aims to transfer. Baker, a redshirt freshman, began to come into his own this year after rehabbing from a knee injury last season. He played in 28 games, averaging nine minutes per game and knocked down 13 three-pointers over the course of the year. But Baker was able to find minutes due to his improved defense, which became even more evident late into the season. I believe he could’ve found a role on this team as a guy who could knock down jumpers...

Now healthier and heavier after adding approximately 15 pounds to his frame throughout the offseason, it was Ingram who earned recognition as ESPN’s under-the-radar star expected to blossom for the Horns in 2019. “The Longhorns have been reliant...

Trajectory of Texas QB Casey Thompson has Tom Herman feeling confident

The redshirt freshman doesn’t have the experience of Shane Buechele, but he’s a dynamic runner who is progressing quickly in commanding the offense. Several months ago, Casey Thompson was the fourth-string quarterback running the scout team, tasked with impersonating opponents instead of running head coach Tom Herman’s offense. Coming out of spring practice for the Texas Longhorns, the redshirt freshman who spent nearly a month in the NCAA transfer portal is now the backup one injury away from the starting job. In the Orange-White game on Saturday, Thompson concluded a key spring...
