Is our Shane Morris. A five star who was overrated and was demoted after a below par season. I cant get excited about a 4.7 40 from a converted qb to wr. Please tell me why im wrong.

Its simple..watch the tape of him playing some of the best competition in Ohio and completely own them when he was literally the only player on offense on his team worth a damn...and lets look at the Under Armour All-American game where he pretty much was the best receiver there..and lets look at Shane Morris during the same game...c'mon man!
When everyone runs out...we run in. Support your firemen.
In truth, damn near every recruit who walks onto the campus of a major cfb program has the potential to be a bust.
That being said, don't get too hung-up on 40 times. There's a lot more to being a good cfb player than 40 times.
Marshall is a lot faster than a 4.7 40. I remember hearing there was something that malfunctioned when he ran that bad 40 time
This is true- I believe it was at SPARQ (I could be wrong on the location). And Jalin decided not to run again. Dude is faster than a 4.7. He will be a beast.
It was the opening but all the same the timer did malfunction..Ill take on field performance all day everyday over some time
We sure do have some dolts on this board. I understand every school has their share of them but man oh man, how come it seems like there are way too many on here. I don't mind opinions but at least do your homework and post his stats, etc. before telling us why you think he wont pan out.
Why would you even start this thread? Marshall was offered a scholly by EVERY MAJOR PROGRAM IN THE COUNTRY. yet some guy on bucknuts has it firgured out. Maybe 24-7 sports will hire you to evaluate talent because saban meyer and guys like Bill k and Duane don't know how to evaluate talent.
We're really lucky to have you on this board to help us make sense of it all
He's the fastest and shiftiest player once he steps onto that football field. That 4.7 40 time is a BIG JOKE once you watch this kid's film. This kid was the best high school player in the nation last year. No doubt.
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Its because we have a very large fan base and the biggest 247 team site in the network.
The more people, the larger sample of idiots unfortunately.
I was wondering the same thing a couple days ago.
I don't see any reason to call the OP an idiot on this one. He's just being honest and wants to be more informed on this kid. It's obvious that he hasn't watched Jalin's film because anyone who has watched his film knows that he is of the best of the best.
Watch Jalin Marshall, and 21 other videos.
If you go to his 24/7 profile it shows that the last timed 40 that he ran was 4.40. I think we will be okay.
Edit: His profile has to be in the full site mode not on the mobile site.

4.7 40? Anquan Boldin laughs!
I wish I could up vote this more than once.
He doesn't run a 4.7 40.
Since that's the entire basis for your opinion, you may want to re-evaluate.
Timer malfunction for jalin and other prospects 40 times at the opening is 100% fact! Not a guess. Furthermore, Go watch his film, and than YOU convince the board he is not the real deal!!
I asked for reasons he'd be good. I got called an idiot. Stay classy, bucknutters. lol. Let me understand, The 4.7 isn't accurate because the clock malfunctioned. When asked to run it again he declined. Awesome. Fills me with confidence. Mike Mitchell's time that was better than NFL CBs is golden tho, because it was awesome, lol. Every report said Jalin struggled as a wideout catching the ball and running routes. Morris struggled throwing the ball. Oh, but Jalin caught a long pass. I forgot
Shane Morris had a scholly offer from Bama as well. He lost a star because he SUCKS. But because Jalin's a buckeye he's going to be awesome and Morris is a skunk weasel and he will suck. You guys have heightened my fear he will suck. Thanks. Duane, I expected better from you in particular. I don't care about his film against 15 year old kids for a 3-8 team AS A QUARTERBACK. He also had a horrible game against Winton Woods. Different demographic than the other suburban schools he went against. I obviously hope the kid does well, but I'm much more confident in Dontre.

You are wrong. Happy?
Feel free to go for beer when he's on the field. We won't miss you and you can always catch his highlights on the post-game wrap up.
