The rich get richer, eh Blake Baker?

Continuing the past month of hot recruiting, Eli Drinkwitz and Blake Baker have landed yet another blue-chipper to the 2024 class. What makes it even sweeter? They plucked this young gun out of Arkansas.

Huff, a 4-star linebacker out of Jonesboro, joins Nicholas Rodriguez in the 2024 linebacker class and gives the staff another high-end recruit to build around in the defensive core.

Welcome, Brian!

Man oh man, does Mr. Huff have a lot of tools in his kit that you can’t teach. He’s massive for a high school linebacker at 6’3” and 220-plus, yet he’s got some deceptive speed when he gets a head of steam behind him. I anticipate the staff will want to trim him down a bit to capitalize on that agility, but I suppose there’s a world where you try to bulk him up a bit and make him an outside rusher? Either way, Huff is a powerful, naturally gifted defender who should add quite a bit of strength and size to the Tigers’ defense moving forward.
