Jake, is ARB supposed to mean a running back?

Tanner Thomas rated 3 stars by top service (and he hasn't played his senior year yet!).


This guy and rb Alex Gibson are fast, explosive, smart runners, both top drawer. In a year or two we'll have a fabulous stable of rbs.

Al has always been able to recruit a stable of great backs and to go three and four deep, which is critical for a position in which guys get hurt.
