UC picked up another commitment, at least thats the indication as of 10:46 on Thursday. There is a link on the front page of bearcatlair.com about a commitment from a 2011 WR. But because I don’t have a account with bearcatlair I can’t be sure who it is. Scout has the commitment being Alex Chisum a three star wide receiver from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone Georgia, an exurb of Atlanta. But until the commitment is updated in the rivals database I can’t be too sure with scouts history of falsely reported commitments. Anyway that is the same high school that produced Calvin Johnson aka Megatron back in 2004. Chisum isn’t quite the athletic freak that Johnson was and is, but he is a very good prospect. He seems to be a bit like Armon Binns, he isn’t the biggest or fastest but is a very smooth guy in and out of his breaks and he sets up defenders with his route running. He also has fantastic ball skills and a good understanding of how to clear space to make catches. You can tell that he is very well coached, that point is corroborated by the AAAA state title that they won last fall. All in all this is another very good get from coach Jones.
Welcome to the Bearcat program Mr. Chisum
update 6:30 AM rivals has indeed updated their database with Chisum listed as a UC recruit.
