Going into the season, I jumped to the conclusion that the Horn's secondary was the deepest, most talented positon on the team. I threw QB position out because it is pretty much Colt or bust kind of situation. After a week or so of practice - I have changed my mind and now believe that WR is the deepest and most talented squad on the Horns. Here is the argument:
- When Kirk passed Brandon Collins it made me realize that a stud like Brandon is now 4th receiver. There is not a better 4th receiver in the country.
- The speed and athleticism that Malcolm, Kirk, and Shipley put on the field is unfair. Having a QB like Colt makes a passing game that can only be stopped by NCAA rule changes (and they are thinking about it as we read)
- Hales, Buckner, Monroe may provide another ridiculous talent.
As for the secondary, they are great as well. But Deon Beasley and Blake Gideon are still in the mix for jobs - and they just don't brink that dynamic athleticism to the field like the 3rd and 4th receiver.
