Watching elite players in HS is hilarious. It's like watching Benny Hill.

Just watch that first vid and play the Benny Hill music in the background.

Prob can get him in the 7th!

Also, the kid has some work to do on his speed. A 4.4 40 isn't much like his dad.

Barry Sanders is one of the most disappointing stories in the NFL for me. The guy deserved to own all the records and was able to just walk away from it all. If his son is half the player he was, I look forward to seeing him play.

4.4 in high school before the body is fully developed and before he has true training regimens isn't bad at all.

Not "bad," but still not his dad. I believe his father was running in the 4.2's his freshman year of college.

Also... why the **** would he go to CSU.

He "received scholarship offers from Alabama, Arizona, Auburn, Mississippi, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa and UCLA."

Those were two different kids.

Barry Jr is undecided. No-name from Ill is decided.

It wasn't Barry Sanders, Jr. it was: "Kapri Bibbs, a Colorado State commitment who plays for Plainfield North (Ill.) High. According to the Chicago Sun-Times and Plainfield.Patch.com, Bibbs ran for a state-record 520 yards and seven touchdowns last Friday against Oswego, and he needed nearly every last yard to help his Tiger team edge past Oswego, 49-43."

Though we'll see if his "soft verbal commitment" to CSU holds up after that kind of showing.

Wasn't he kind of a name-only prospect? I thought I saw somewhere he wasn't really all that good. And did he just walk away? I remember him picking somewhere in AZ and faintly recalling something about it but never got a full story.

I think thats almost exactly what Barry ran coming out of college.

Did some research.

Numbers ranging from a 4.2, to a 4.25 to a 4.38.

I doubt he did a 4.2 on the dot.

Not going to go through and find it all again.

This was the 4.37 one though. (I said 4.38 for some reason).

"Sanders measured up at 5-foot-7 5/8, 203 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37. ..."

A lot closer to 4.4 then 4.2.

They still can't get perfect 40 times today, who knows what he really ran back then.

How would you like to be the father of one of those kids on defense, and hear your son tell you that he's playing against someone named Barry Sanders Jr.

I'd tell my kid to knock the **** out of him (within the rules).

Pfft... people spent quite a while trying to do that to the original.

I think I'm gonna go watch a Barry video. Probably my favorite all time player.

His dad is my all time favorite running back, I think he was the best ever. Doesn't appear to be as fast or shifty as his dad yet, but still fun to watch him run. He definitely looks like a talented kid. I look forward to seeing where he commits to and watching his career develop.

I hope it's not Texas. Ricky Williams and Cedric Benson have both been interesting characters. Has there been a successful offensive UT player?

Don't give me Selvin Young or Roy Williams, either. I specified successful.

Texas is known to be a school of luxury for athletes. It has been described as a "country club atmosphere" by several people.

I hope Jr. goes somewhere that will develop him into a great person and athlete. I would love to see him go somewhere like Notre Dame, Stanford, Vanderbilt, etc if he doesnt play for OSU. His dad was such an outstanding person, that it would bug me if he went to UT. I'm sure Barry would be proud, but the legacy of Barry Sanders is so great that I'd hate to see his son involved in things he shouldnt be.

Agreed. Nothing would crush my boyhood worship more than to one day see Barry Sr busted with drugs or a hooker or something. He seemed like what Marvin Harrison was before the shooting stuff came out. Respectful in every aspect of his game, well spoken, etc.

Barry was the ultimate. His teammates used to give him a hard time because he was such a good, down to earth guy while they were living the rich athlete life in the fastlane.

Its one of those things where you feel a little ownership in the deal. Barry left the game on his own terms as a great, unfettered man. He didnt complain when he played behind Thurman Thomas at OSU, and he didnt complain that the Lions basically went cheap and used him to sell tickets without giving him the players he needed to win a championship. I would feel bad for Barry, and it would be a shame if Jr. went to a school like UT and spent all of his time getting wasted and pulling a Travis Henry and it tarnished his father's sparkling legacy.

Best back ever.

Do you know who had the previous record?

Our very own Howard Griffith.

It's just not fair letting a kid like this play against 3A defenses. The school that the article said he roasted? It was a "home school" team.

That being said, he still looks like a spoecial talent and should do very well in college. He has 6A talent, but it's just not fair letting him beat on 3A defenses like that. Poor kids...

Let's don't forget Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas were in the same backfield at Oklahoma State......:strong:
