    All I can guess is he must be a stud to get a scholly this year. Welcome to the Flats.

    He is Irish, but comes to us by way of ProKick Australia, an academy that has produced 5 Ray Guy winners. So this guy is bred to kick the football. I know its hard to get excited about a punter, but no way Collins gives a scholly to one this early in the cycle unless he is the real deal.

    No rating, as Rivals just made a profile for him. From what I have seen, specialists who get p5 schollies are 3 stars, as Harvin was.

    I love this. I’ve never understood why teams would have 5 RB’s or 5 WR’s sitting the bench on full scholarship when punters and kickers are so vital.

    If he’s a punter with an offer this early then he’s a bomber. Glad to have him.

    Even a great offense needs a good punter. Cuz every good punter you have, is a good punter the other team doesn't have.

    *sigh* there was a time we didn't have to punt. That was so much fun...
    If this kid can be as devastating as Elvis was, more power to our coaches. Has he got an arm like Harvin? ;)

    False. There was a time where we often didn’t punt when we should have.

    People forget the 4th and 6's on our own 40 where we just threw up our hands and went for it with passing plays that were doomed from the start. Not to say there weren't some ballsy calls,too, but those were frustrating.

    Let's hope that he can flip field position like Rodney and Durant did so many times.
