    And I think Beck is underrated. He is quick and can catch over the middle.
    If he was 6'2, he would be very good.

    That exactly what I'm saying.
    He is a solid WR. If he was 6'2, he'd be very good. Thanks for making my point.

    If I ran a 4.2, I would be fast.

    I don't doubt the kid has all the "tools" to be a great WR. But, like I said before, until he gets actual playing time against bigger, faster, stronger players, it's all speculation IMO. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see Tuminello scoring TD's as a true frosh, but I'm not going to be disappointed if we have to wait one more year to see him compete.

    I don't know how big Tuminello is supposed to be, but I stood by him at the Spring game--he seemed my size. That's not good. If I got hit going across the middle by a Miss. State db, it would rupture my spleen! Unless he's tough as nails, he needs a year in the weight program. I'd venture he is 6'0, 165 right now.

    Scout says 6'2" and 184...but we all know about how these guys list themselves. There are no scout.com event measurements.

    He might be that tall with cleats on. I can't believe he's that heavy. Bottom line, he has to gain some bulk or he will get killed!

    He looks every bit of 6'2 in these highlight films (unless the db's are all 5'6).

    I wasn't speculating if he'll play this year nor how good he'll be. I just said from watching some higlights of him, he is already better than Beck, whom he was compared to earlier in this thread.

    You can't be serious? He was playing against high schoolers. I'm not saying he isn't good, but to say he is better than Beck right now simply because he was able to perform so well against high school kids, half of whom could probably barely chew gum and walk at the same time, while Beck was playing against college men who've been through several years of college football weight, conditioning and skills training is ludicrous.

    Now I'm not saying he's not good and he won't be better than Beck, but I don't think you can consider your statement accurate or realistic until he's played similar competition.

    And the entire point of that comparison was that he put up similar numbers in high school.

    that isn't that surprising, but I am a little disappointed. Have you (or anyone else) gotten a first hand look at RP Stuart? I believe he is in Ruston for voluntary workouts.
