Bullock to Providence

Rodney Bullock, a 6-foot-7, 215-pound power forward from Hampton (Va.) Kecoughtan, has verbally committed to Providence.

Bullock told SNY.tv he chose the Friars over Clemson, Xavier and Old Dominion.

“I think it fits my style of play and I’m going to bring lots of versatility,” he said.

Bullock, who averaged about 19 points and 9 rebounds last season, is ranked the No. 30 power forward in the Class of 2013 by Rivals.com.

“He’s a four guy who can do a lot of three things,” said his high school coach, Ivan Thomas. “He’s a multidimensional player. He can guard maybe a two, three and four and can play a two, three and four at times. He’s a 6-7 kid who can do a lot of things.”

I'd give the defense a lot higher than the C. They made some key stops to keep the Jets in the game and really only had one lapse (the Williams screen TD) the entire game. Also, Nick Folk's career long FG is 56 yards, Bassett.

"Also, the poorly executed on-side kick was a head scratcher."


oh, that was an on-side kick? ah, well then, OK, yeah.

Coaching Grade B:

MM gets an A+ for a great plan on offense that had the Panthers top ranked D exposed on several plays that our QB was unable to capitalize on.

Rex/DT get a B- for too many risky calls on D that invariably cost the team.

Kotwica gets a B+ for the special teams plans despite the blocked kick.

HC Rex gets a C- for not making sure the ST's had better blocking personnel to use since the personal protector was being replaced bu a gunner.

   Mike Evans is NOT THAT GOOD. The guy is slow and couldn't get open against decent college CB's. Gimme Watkins or Lee in the first round or take the OLB like the mock.

@a57se special teams gets a B+ despite blocked kick but Rex takes the hit with a C- for not double checking with the guy who got a B+?

Coaching B-

Geno D missed a wide open Holmes 3 or 4 times.

Defense C- I think Williams is still running. Reed doesn't belong as a starter. 

Special teams D ..that has to be the worst on side kick attempt I have ever seen.

Offense Line D Winters will allow someone to kill whatever qb is back there eventually.. Brick is no longer a Elite LT...gets beat every week.

@a57se @greggreen He's not slow. No, he doesn't run a 40 like Stephen Hill (see where falling in love with speed got us there), but he's got enough gas to get open downfield, and when you're that physical with great hands, you don't have to be the fastest guy in the league to be immensely successful. Ask Brandon Marshall. Evans is an animal.

@a57se @greggreen wont make my informed opinion until after the season when i start doing my "research". But for now ill take your word that hes overrated. id like to get a WR and a TE plus a OLB in the first 3 rounds. ( these new comment format is terrible right? i had to actually look back in this article and look for my own comment to see if anyone replyed. i mean come on)

@a57se This is almost as good as your argument the other day about Cousins getting a 2nd and how you don't trust what the media says specifically mentioning NFL.com and then proceeding to link an article from Nfl.com to "prove" your point about Cousins not being able to fetch a 2nd.
