Two New Lions

Myles Davis

Thanks to the eagle eyed work of Ungvar from the VOY fan board, we know of two new Lions joining the incoming 2017 freshman class.

First is 5-10, 175 pound speedy WR Myles Davis from Walter Payton HS in Chicago. Davis was named to the Chicago Sun-Times All Public League 1st Team earlier this fall.

Davis is also a standout member of the Davis track team.

Payton will be the first Payton grad to come to Columbia football.

Jalen Allen

Second is 5-11, 185 pound RB Jalen Allen from Cranbrook-Kingswood HS outside of Detroit.

Allen came back from an ACL tear in 2015 to put up some strong stats this season.

Allen will also be the first Cranbrook-Kingsbrook grad to come to CU football.

all look good. Any idea who the standouts are, or who has other Ivy or FBS offers?

Jake, do you think one of these guys is the "game-changing offensive weapon" the coaches tweeted about?

We are going to have a lot of WRs on the roster next year. Tre Gabriel will be a junior; he was highly touted when we recruited him in Al's first class as a dynamic WR/playmaker but hasn't seen much action. Any explanation?

Roar Lion said...

Just a guess but Gabriel might be too small. He does not offer a QB any kind of wingspan (and our QB is not super accurate in any case). Maybe the Old Lion can think of the last all-Ivy receiver who was 5-8? Given our issues with fielding punts for two years, one would think Gabriel would be the KR/PR if he were truly a dynamic playmaker.
