What's the story on this guy? It appears we have thrown our name into the hat and he seems to like us. I had never heard of him before today. Is/was he leaning anywhere?
so. much. swag.
His film looks good but I have no idea about the competition out there.
Doing 7 on 7 drills in Wayfarers? Yes, please.

Yep. Starks follows his own rules. Fvck the world.
Saw one writer compare him to Marshall Faulk. Very dual threat out of the backfield but still has power.
I'm getting way ahead of myself here, but just say this happens:
5* TJ Yeldon
4* Kenyan Drake
5* Derrick Henry
4* Tyren Jones
4* Altee Tenpenny
4* Alvin Kamara
4* Roc Thomas
4* Nathan Starks
5* Bo Scarbrough (ATH/RB)
You're forgetting our silent commit Fournette.
I know OU is right there for him. They have a bit of a pipeline to Bishop Gorman. I think one of their assistant coaches used to coach there, but don't quote me on that.
I have been talking about his since his soph year, and liked him better last year, than either of the runningbacks we signed in our past class. My #1 target for USC at rb this class.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Have you guys gotten anyone out of BG since Demarco Murray?
They play a strong out of state schedule every year. Played top teams from CA, AZ and Florida recently.

Too bad there's only one ball
Good looking athlete. His Bishop Gorman team's game #1 of the 2012 vs Our Lady of Good Counsel was televised and he was impressive. Played both ways.
I think Rock Thomas has better balance and agility as a RB but both guys seem to be somewhat comparable in terms of size and measureables.....although I wasn't overly impressed with Rock's score at the Atlanta SPARQ on yesterday. With that said, I favor film/on-field performance over combines in evaluating RBs.
Wonder why Bama has chilled on Rock? His film is very impressive.

Not sure. But in the end, I think Roc ends up at Bama.
I didn't know DeMarco played for !. Yeah DeMarco was the last from there. Cale Gundy has been talking to him for almost 2 years I believe. As of this moment he says OU has the lead and he talks about following AD and BG alum DeMarco to OU but we'll see how it goes.

i'm going w/ R.Thomas,S.Perine,& B.Scarbrough in 2014. the buzz i've heard is that Starks is being recruited as a DB.
imo Bo will be used in a modified HB/slot role.
try & visualize Amari & Foster wide, OJ Howard at TE,with a 225lb slot (Bo) reciever.
which ever QB replaces AJ in 2014 is going to have fun.
OU, USC, and ND in no order..
He's the star of a top 10 team nationally. Bishop Gorman is a very good FB team. The Nevada competition isn't Fkorida, Texas or Cali, but it's not terrible. Plus BG played alot of top 50 teams and fared well. This kid's legit.
Bishop Gorman...is that where Shabazz Muhammed played? Sounds familiar.
Rock said Auburn and Georgia are his top 2 on ESPN and wants an offer from Oregon.
"Georgia and Auburn are sticking out to me right now," "An offer from Oregon would be outstanding," Thomas said. "I would really like to visit them then."
I think I read an article where he said Bama's depth was the reason he wasn't high on Bama and he wants to play as a freshmen. Don't kill the messenger, just telling ya what I saw.
We know but the general concensus among Bama fans is if UA wants him they'll get him.
Rumor is he has tried to commit to us twice (once per his twitter account) but we wanted him to wait. We will be the team to beat late in the process. I feel pretty confident in saying that. His feelings are just a little hurt right now. Personally, mine would be too.
