More Inside...

Christian is an offensive lineman.  He becomes the second commitment for the class of 2010, joining defensive linemen Darius Cummings.

Christian plays for the Lowndes High Vikings, of Valdosta Georgia.  The 'Noles are really doing well with Lowndes kids lately, having landed Greg Reid (The #2 CB in the nation) and Gerald Demps (an ESPNU 150 Safety) in the 2009 class. They like our no-nonsense approach and we like their South Georgia attitude.  Lowndes is a multi-year champion in Georgia and Randy McPherson runs an excellent program.

"Me, Greg, and Gerald are real close," Christian said. "We're doing track and stuff together right now."_ Democrat

I like getting multiple guys from a single high school because the players tend to hold each other accountable within their group.  Also, multiple guys from one high school might make it less likely that a player will get homesick.

Christian is a huge Seminoles fan and he was telling people that he could commit on the spot if offered by the Seminoles.  On Wednesday, we did just that.  The Democrat article (linked above) profiles his excitement.

As for his eventual recruiting ranking, I think we are looking at a 6.0 5.8 rated 4* recruit (rivals).  He plays with great aggresion and he is relentless.  Championship teams are built under center and in the trenches and FSU is getting a good one here.  Christian is currently sporting a beard, which is awesome, but it might not help him play better.  He was named to the AP's 1st team Georgia Offensive Line and an honorable mention offensive line selection by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, a paper that famously neglects south Georgia kids.

Christian checks in at 6' 5", 278lbs.  He might still be growing, considering he's either an old 16 or a young 17 years of age.  Watching his film, he can easily add 20-30 more pounds without looking sloppy.  He will play Left Tackle for Rick Trickett, which means we still have some work to do on the defensive tackle front (Maybe we think Amp McCloud is a sure thing?
