OK, I’m beginning to understand now.
1.) We should be recruiting guys who are also being recruited by bigger schools, but we shouldn’t get excited because they will proably end up at the bigger schools.
2.)We should not be excited by guys not getting offers (that we know about) from bigger schools because they probably aren’t any good even if they have great stats because they’re probably not really playing anyone.
Assuming 1.) and 2.), we may as well just sit and sulk about how everyone else is excited about their recruits.October 20, 2015 at 4:18 pm #22756
Well LG has his own fears but he may be correct here. OK,rather a fact of life for us. Still gonna get excited for our verbals and worry until NSD. If we cant,there’s no real point in following rcruiting. Might as well just waiting for LU to release our signed commits. Not for me.October 20, 2015 at 4:38 pm #22758
Me neither Rich.
LG may very well be right but I was just pointing out the hazards of just going after the most desirable recruits. Lehigh’s niche will continue to be the “diamonds in the rough” while we continue to chase the stars and hope that they understand everything that Lehigh has to offer.January 28, 2016 at 12:48 am #25025
I really hope this one sticks. He’s been posting lots of big school activity on his twitter (@StephenPuhl87) every day it’s another visit that he was on.
This being said he did commit to LH with some big offers already on the table. Looks like he was at an invite only camp between his Freshmen and JR year at Notre Dame. He’s holding a Heisman Trophy at OSU in another, on the field at Oklahma and TCU. Lots of Pitt and PSU pics as well.
If he does sign, I hope the coaching staff sits down with him and pic his brain about the recruiting process (at other schools) and what made him choose LH over the Power 5 schools.January 28, 2016 at 1:04 am #25028
Nervewracking but not unusual for recruits to take numerous visits even after a verbal. Lets all keep our fingers crossed that he sticks. I follow his twitter also. He also keeps in contact with our commits.January 28, 2016 at 5:08 pm #25035
I’ve seen this kid play, he’s a plodder. Most likely will end up as an interior lineman.January 28, 2016 at 6:06 pm #25041
I’ve only seen his Hudl but his SPARQ sore and 40 times are not even close to a Plodder. Don’t want to fight with you but I just don’t see it. Also, often he’s running down the field blocking for a very fast running back and keeping stride. He does have VERY good blocking skills and is very explosive out of his cuts when running routes.January 28, 2016 at 6:12 pm #25043
buch, Puhl is a legit 4.7 player. As wilson pointed out his SPARQ and 40 times belie him being a plodder.January 28, 2016 at 8:41 pm #25046
He’s more like a 5.0 but no sense in quibbling. I saw him with my own eyes, big kid that would be a good Patriot League TE. Certainly not a D1 TE.January 28, 2016 at 8:45 pm #25047
Which game did you go to?January 29, 2016 at 12:26 am #25051
somebody should tell buck that PL is Div 1January 29, 2016 at 12:31 am #25052
Naaah,he would just claim we are not a real D 1 school. Not worth the time.
Mr.Puhl is an excellent athlete with with good hands. From video, the young man can block.January 29, 2016 at 3:56 pm #25054
You tell me if he’s fast.January 29, 2016 at 4:55 pm #25055
Here is what I need in a TE.
1.)6-3, approx 240#…Puhl has the height and is still growing physically…check
2.)Preferably 4.8/4.9 40 speed. More interested in quick feet…check
3.)Willing and capable to block….check, check
4.)Able to find the open area and catch the ball when thrown to him….check, check
Mr. Puhl has everything I want in a TE and would be a perfect fit here at Lehigh. Now please move on bucky.January 29, 2016 at 6:52 pm #25058
All I can say is WOW! I hope this one sticks!
Thank you Buck for making me watch even more of this guys HUDL. In the game films you can see him run in stride with #4 one of the top RB in the Country PSU Commit Miles Sanders. And in his JR year film he is performing, to a high level, some blocking schemes that most Collage players struggle with like pulling. Not only does he pull to the right but he hip turned and made the block to his left, most impressive. (maybe you missed that Buck)
You may even see me at a game this year sporting a jersey with his number!
WAY TO GO LH COACHING STAFF!
