    P Patrick Fisher, 6-4, 240, DeMatha, MD. Ranked by SuperPrep as # 20 player overall (at any position) in 6-state Midatlantic region. Averaged over 47 yards per punt according to SuperPrep, and 49.6 yards according to Rivals. Botton line is this kid can boom them. He also placekicks.

    Welcome aboard Patrick - you made the right choice!

    LOL yep, TE or even LB.

    Also, Fisher made USA Today's 2nd team HS All America as a punter. The kid who decommitted from LSU to Oklahoma made 1st team (Freeby), yet Fisher did have a higher avg. per punt.

    The scholarships are dwindling down now - will this be another week where we see some more high-profile commits?!

    You bet your sweet ass, we did. Field position is everything in a competitive league like the SEC. If you can get a punter who averages 10 yards better than a walk-on, you give him a scholarship.

    He's not just a punter, he's a placekicker as well. He may do both, if the kickers we have now can't hack it. Plus, this kid is a big boy, he may be an "experiment" at tight end or linebacker for all we know.

    Does anyone have the full list of all 20 commitments? I want to see who all we've got right now.

    Dandy Don has a commitment list on his site at:

    They say Fisher puts 80% of his kickoffs out of the endzone. I'd like to see some of that action at LSU!

    I read on Rivals.com that he's 6-5, not 6-4. Either way, he'll command attention on the field.

    Guess this screws our chances of getting any roughing the kicker penalties in the next 4 years.

    Sebastian Drunkowski is 6' 2" 255 lbs to put this guys size in perspective.

    Do you think they'd penalize us for unnecessary roughness if Fisher kicked someone trying block a punt? He'd knock someone out! :D

    I went to high school with a punter/Kicker who was about 6' 240. He played TE and DE in high school, but in college, he had no chance to do anything except punt, and that was at a division II school. Just because this kid is big, doesn't mean he could do anything other than punt/kick.
