Holy Cross RB Jaden Handy commits to Tulane

Post by long green »

Handy is a squat, quick back with very good hands. There's some Amar'e Jones and Stephen Huderson in him, perhaps a good mix of both.

Handy is a 3 star on 247 with a UTSA offer. We offered him weeks ago. We seem to have a new tweet heralding new commitments.

Perfect fit for our Slot-RB position which A Jones and Y Booker fill now. Very excited about this commit.

Handy can fit both slots which is why I think he has value.

Rummel guys aren't smart enough. Just kidding. Sort of. :lol:

Remetich is 2020
Zach Harris recently.

I forget one from the early 2010s, and Jerome Landry in early 2000s.

Beau Harvey - from my class and a great high school TE, but injuries derailed his Wave career. He passed 6 years ago this week, sadly.

Antoine Duplessis was from HC and played under Toledo. FB/TE hybrid.
This one belongs to the Wave.

Rivals just evaluated Handy as a 3 star player.

Billy Wiles is still a 2 star (likely because of his lack of FBS offers, but his tape is better than a lot of the lower 3 star guys).

Billy Wiles on Rivals is rated 5.4, a 5.5 is a 3* so there's that.

Thank you. I agree with your assessment. He appears to have a strong arm, touch, good field vision and good feel for pressure. Any idea the level of competition he was playing at?

Here's a story about from WVUE that aired yesterday, I believe. Video in the link. Handy says he was recruited to play the slot (Amare Jones) position but the report is all about his versatility.
