This is an excellent, insightful piece from Austin Meek of The Athletic on 2021 quarterback J.J. McCarthy (LINK).

Former Michigan S&C coach and Arkansas defensive end Tank Wright is headed to Army (LINK). Remember that he was elevated to “coach” when Chris Partridge left for a short time before Bob Shoop was hired.

Review of 2012 TTB Ratings

Jeremy Clark

I did a review of my TTB Ratings from 2011 here (LINK), but it’s been a while, so it’s long past time for a look at the 2012 class.

I do not take into account how players will do once they get to the NFL or how they will pan out if they transfer to other programs. I will give myself a grade of 1-5 like a 5-point grading scale (5 is best, 1 is worst) for each player; I reserve the right to give myself an incomplete if the guy never made it to his first season. I’ll work down the list from highest to lowest with a brief career recap for each player:
