Bannister from Fayetteville
« on: January 08, 2019, 08:49:05 pm »

It is my understanding he walked on at Mizzou.  Did he go there because that is where Powell went?

Did we offer him a PWO position?

I can understand not using a scholarship on guys that donít have the measurables you are looking for.  But if we didnít offer a PWO spot for him it makes absolutely no sense.  Especially when he was in our backyard.

Kid is going to be a baller.  Already turning into a reliable 3rd down receiver.

Don't think we even offered PWO but I am sure Taylor going there didn't hurt (who we also obviously didn't offer a schollie).

He is Tim Horton's nephew and Harold Horton's grandson.

I'm guessing you were pushing for him in 2017?

No.  Didnít even know who he was in 2017.  But then again, I donít get paid 4 mil a year to make evaluations.

I didnít know he was related to the hortons.  Knowing BBís relationship there I think we just found the answer

My point was, it's easy to set back and MMQB on missed offers/walkons two years later. As to BB and the Horton's, Long got ride of Harold, and Bret went with Lunney over Tim. New HC'S are going to bring in people they want, correct?

I understand that but letís not pretend that Bret was buddy buddy with the hortons.  The first year injury tweet from Tim and Bretís response was quite telling.

I wouldn't expect him to be, and Tim was the coach at a conference foe.

If Tim Horton had a nephew that was a prospect, I think we would have seen his name on here at some point. I don't recall that ever happening!  I'll admit he looked good in a bowl game, but a future baller that we missed out on is a bit of a stretch at this point. He had what, 8 catches this season? I can't even find much about his HS contributions.

I still like the Hortons and glad to see someone in the family exceeding walk on expectations in the SEC, but it's hard to say how much more he'll develop. These slot receivers are hard to project sometimes, but I'm pretty excited about John David White & Finn Corwin and ready to see what these all state/undersized HS stars can do in our offense.  Hopefully they don't get blown away with a late offer.

No one from that family is fanning any bad flames toward Arkansas

The kid might be great and good for him

Could he also the grandson of Glenn Bannister out of Ft. Smith??  Uncanny resemblance  if he's not.

Lunney > Horton in my book. Lunney has turned into a decent coach and recruiter.
