    From a Texas based recruiting site:

    Athletic Accomplishments

    This dominant 2017 grad is a defensive line standout at All Saints Episcopal School, competing in tough SPC private school play in the DFW area. Before transferring to All Saints, Max was a 3 year varsity starter at St. Andrew's Episcopal in Austin, TX. A varsity MLB starter as only a freshman, he started both ways for the Crusaders at TE & DE as a soph and spent some time at OLB. Again a 2 way starter as a junior, he was the team leader in sacks and earned the Statesman's Game Ball. Now a senior, Max has been dominant at each position along the defensive line at his new school, and helped lead his All Saints squad to their second consecutive SBC Football Championship!

    Athletic Statistics
    Standing 6'6"-246lbs as a senior, this complete package combines his tall frame with his 327lb bench & 500lb squat strengths with his 4.8/40yd speed, 4.16/20yd shuttle speed and 7.05/3-cone speed to certainly have all the tools for the next level. Through 10 games as a senior including their Conference/State Championship, Max recorded 72 tackles, which ranks him as the #2 tackler on his team & #2 in the SPC Conference. He was also credited with 7 TFL's, 5.5 sacks, 3 PBU's and 2 forced fumbles. As a junior from his TE position, Max averaged 14.5yds a catch on 19 receptions for 290yds & 3 TD's. At defensive end, he recorded 61 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 25 TFL's, 5 forced fumbles and 1 recovered.

    10 yard dash: 1.66 seconds
    60 yard shuttle: 4.21 seconds
    Deadlift: 477lbs
    Broad Jump: 9' 5"

    While it isn't something we've seen from Diaco (although RE on occasion would do it) I would like the plan for this kid (and Brouse from last year's recruiting class) to bulk up to 285 or so and move inside to DT. To do so we would also need to commit to a four man front, which I personally believe would allow us to better utilize our hybrid DE/LB (as full time defensive ends).

    Tom even at 10 lbs he fits the mold to be a weak side DE in a 4 man front that will be tough to handle because of his speed. Same position Carrezola should be lined up at all the time.

    You have to develop talent at our recruiting level. If this were hockey, this kid would be off to juniors for 1 or 2 years. You want to get to the point where your starters are mostly 4th and 5th year players ideally. This recruit with his speed could develop into a very good player by his redshirt junior year.

    Every time I see one of these now, my thought goes to something bad, like I'm going to decommitt or go to Temple or
    no one called me. Welcome MAX, you will enjoy Storrs!!

    Looking at this picture its amazing to think that Diaco played LB in The B1G. Cummins is a big kid, but he looks tiny in comparison standing next to him.

    Well that's a bummer. I wonder which way the cookie crumbled here. He's an intriguing player, but we do have a lot of tall DE/TE hybrid guys and fewer guys built like Fatusaki, Myers, Marian and Campenni for interior Dline than we should have.

    I am always on this wave length. Makes it even worse when I'm browsing twitter and see he received an offer from Houston.

    And just like that he has decommitted as I see from a couple posts previously. Well, this might only be the beginning.

    We will be fortunate to get ten kids in this class. Rebuilding this roster will be a massive undertaking.

    Nah. We'll be fine. We'll get some kids to red shirt, some jucos and some fifth year seniors. We'll be ok. QB will be the key. Hopefully Sheriffs will stay.
