    Does anyone remember what he was rated coming out of high school (2 stars, 3 stars, etc.)?

    I'm not sure what his rating was, but I do know thus far he hasn't lived up to his potential. Its too bad because he is one of the fastest players on the team (if not the fastest).

    Now is a perfect time for him to step it up and prove the doubters wrong.

    From lsusports.net, for what it is worth. I don't think he was a really highly recruited guy.

    I think Brazell should be used only on plays where we could use a reverse and have Clayton hand off to Brazell and let him fly. Maybe he could return if he could catch.

    I remember in high school we put the fast guys who couldn't catch in the defensive backfield. Why cant we put him at safety for added depth?

    If you thought Jack Hunt got dragged by running backs, then Brazzell will just ride on their backs into the endzone. He would never hold up trying to tackle guys with 40-50 pounds on him. I think his best use (if he can't catch the ball like last year) is either on end arounds or as a decoy on fly patterns to open up the middle of the field for a crossing pattern.

    He wouldn't be much of a decoy unless he can make the defense respect his ability to catch the ball. With the kind of speed he's got there has to be somewhere he can fit into the offense or kick returns. Does he have amy moves after he catches the ball or does he just have straightaway speed?
