Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
WE ARE UK
Bama or UK? Just like Derek Kief!
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
I think he will end up at UK too. The closeness to his mother is paramount. I do think its a mistake to not go to Bama. If you want to win a national title, it's a no brainer. I thought Barker was a little different in that you can easily argue TOBC doesn't get qb's to the NFL. No such argument can be made against Saban with defensive lineman. You guys may have picked up a hidden gem in Middleton too.
I hope he doesn't base his college decision on what position he wants to play in the NFL. Playing NT in college doesn't always translate to being a successful NT in the NFL. There are several guys who played DT in a 4-3 at a high level in college that now play NT in a 3-4 at a high level in the NFL. Vince Wilfork, Casey Hampton, Shaun Rodgers, and Haloti Ngata are just a few that come to mind. I'm sure Stoops has informed him of this though.
You guys are absolutely right. It also does not hurt though.
