One of my good freinds (who happens to be a huge Hurricane fan) went back to Miami to visit some family...he comes back saying he met this kid Devine and said he was a real classy kid...respects his family...isnt arrogant like some high prospects are.

Whoever gets this kid will get a special person...not just a player but a person

His highlight videos are CRAZY. IMO, Reggie Bush V. 2.0

Really? I've heard the exact opposite. Isn't this the guy that Deion adopted? And has 2 or 3 kids and still in high school? I've also heard his academics could prevent him from getting into certain schools. No questioning his talent though.

I've heard the same things.

Ive heard VERY mixed things about Devine

From what I can piece together he is a really good kid, but he has made a few mistakes. Im sure he has his not so good days like everyone else where he may come out as arrogant or mean , and when he does thats what gets showed to the media. Thats a lot of pressure on a high school kid.

I wasn't questioning his personality or "coolness" by any means. Just passing on what I've heard. I'm very interested in seeing him at the next level.

Being academically eligible for college is his biggest issue. Then remaining eligible if he does manage to get in

First Half:
stuffed on his team's first two series. ZERO blocking. Four of his five OL'men are 200 lbs. or less.

After that it got silly. After those two series, he's averaging around 11-12 YPR and two TD's

Ended up with about 160 yards and 2 TD's against a very good team headed for the playoffs.
Noel didn't get many touches in the second half, but played more of a decoy role, which opened up the whole offense.


On his personal life:
Noel Devine's parents BOTH died of AIDS. Father when he was 3 months old, and monther when he was 11 years old.
He does have two of his own children.
His grades and scores are trouble spots or him, but supposedly headed in the right direction.

His top schools are LSU, UF, FSU, NEB, and WV

FSU is horrible, and Bowden looks to still be running the offense next year. That, and they brought in the #1 RB recruit in the country last year. I don't see FSU landing him. I can really see Noel fitting into WV, UF, and probably NEB's offenses the best. I don't know about LSU. That might just be my hopes and prayers that he doesn't end up at LSU :wink:

Devine actually has more than those schools as favorites. He also likes Michigan, Penn State, USC, California, etc (but of those teams Michigan has the best shot at him).

Basically last year he was a Miami lock, but has since turned away from them, and Tom Lemming believes he'll head up north.

Well, this is according to the announcers that interviewed him the days leading up to the game.

Devine is a VERY good person and good kid. The only reason he gets a bad rep is because he has 3 kids. He has no criminal record, he doesn't get in trouble at school, he only has bad grades. He works hard at football and to support his 3 kids. If he had good grades he would going to wherever the hell he wanted and starting first year in most cases.

At least that's what ESPN-U was reporting.
I can't attest to his character, but he had the skills to be an impact player at any school of his choosing... except the U, apparently Coker wanted him to be a CB :lol:
