Yep, we need this guy!
I never will be or compare myself to such. Acting like a Gump, however is a distinct possibility and one must be diligent in refraining from such.
But...but...but...Miles claps funny and does not call the plays that all of the professional coaches in the stands thinks he should call.
Dawson's (Pearland, Texas) Tony Upchurch is currently the only true wide receiver committed to LSU. When the 6-foot-2, 220-pound playmaker committed, it came as a shock to many. While he is highly thought of in the Lone Star State, much of the focus has been on Louisiana's crop of receivers, who are considered to be the best group the state has produced in years.
Upchurch has grown considerably over the last few months and if he continues to do so, it is possible that he could develop into an H-back. Furthermore, Upchurch does have some experience at running back to go along with the skillset and frame to play the position.
Speaking of only true WR LSU has in the barn, Upchurch is so big now and if he bulks up just a little more, he will end up at TE for LSU. Which is not a problem, LSU has the inside track on 4 elite WRs for 2014. And D'haquille isn't out of the question either. So make that 5 potential stud WRs in this class, although I doubt we get them all.
I saw Upchurch play last night against Clear Falls High School. He is definitely a physical specimen. Unfortunately, it was hard to evaluate him. They seldom threw to him and when they did, his quarterback was very inaccurate. I assume the LSU coaching staff was able to get a much better evaluation of him at camp.
Pearland Dawson beat Santa Fe 49-10 with LSU commit Tony Upchurch catching nine passes for 164 yards and a touchdown and running for 33 yards and two scores on six carries.
