    I would be interested in seeing a Tua/Bryce side by side but I feel pretty confident Bryce is a good bit shorter. 2 full inches would not surprise me.

    Bryce is fucking tiny.

    Tua measured 6’ even at NFL combine.

    If Bryce is over 5’10” I’d be pretty shocked.

    Bryce is 7 ft tall and shoots lightning bolts from his arse

    Honestly, Bryce is going to fucking ball. He’ll be a top 5-10 pick no doubt. Don’t really care about his size. He is the best QB I’ve been seen in HS

    So when I say athlete I'm talking in a more literal sense, as in combine setting measurables, etc. Kyler didn't run at the combine, but he reportedly timed in the 4.3's while at OU, and outran Andy Isabella who has a verified 4.31. Off the top of my head, his 60 yard for baseball was something like 6.11 which is elite/top of the food chain by MLB standards, and he was also the Cardinals #1 pick in 2019 before deciding to stick with football. His lateral quickness is probably the most impressive thing about him despite this, and while I can't find recorded 3-cone results for him, I wouldn't be surprised if his time would be in the 3.8~ range based on what we know about him as a player.

    Bryce is without a doubt more explosive than Tua, but he seems to be more of a 4.6~, 4.1~ shuttle type which is really fucking good for your QB, but a huge difference from a speed and agility standpoint compared to Murray.

    This is assuming he has a similar career or season to Tua/Murray, which as much of Bryce stan as I am, is something we need to see actually happen first. In that scenario, Tua's height may be valued more (every inch under like 6'1 makes a huge difference in NFL front offices), and Murray's athleticism would almost certainly be more valuable despite being probably an inch or so shorter than Bryce.

    Overall though I was just dropping an example and we're going into extreme hypotheticals over our millionaire/yet to start a game QB.

    No idea what the exact measurements are but I'd think Tua has about 30 pounds on Bryce too. Really, really small. Tua is short but powerfully built.

    Not worried about it though, Bryce is gonna be a stud

    He's got panache. He'll be running this joint by the end of the season.

    I agree with the last part. Dude was basically the perfect QB prospect aside from size. They put him #1 overall despite that for a reason.
    because he committed to Bama

    Not sure about this year but I know he’s been there in the past. Also, pretty sure he got to ask Saban questions at his press conferences last year, to my surprise.

    Completely random, but if we pull Walter Nolen/Lebbeus Overton/Peter Woods/James Smith over the next two classes, holy fuck at our interior DL from like '23-'25.

    I feel like Woods is the only virtual guarantee of those, but 2/4 is as close to an actual recruiting "lock" as you can get. Overton and Nolen I'm not particularly convinced we land, though we are in a good position for each.

    "I think that actually I like the quote. I think it's important because we're not scared of Alabama. I know that a lot of people want us to be scared, but we're really not. They had a great team last year. They beat us last year head to head, and they beat us pretty bad, but that game was close at the beginning, and it was honestly closer than they had played. There at the end of it, they just did what they do, and they obviously had a great team.
