Van Ackeren

I was really excited when this kid transferred. Any word on how he is doing? Playing safety or linebacker? He seems like a kid that will really excel. My apologys if already discussed but I've been away.
Go Griz!!
 
Article by Fritz Neighbor said he's "getting a look at linebacker". That makes sense I guess since the Griz are loaded with great safeties who pretty much shutdown opponent's passing games last year. Oh wait.....

They better give him a second look at safety and a third and fourth look.

If the coaches feel they have better options at safety, this kid must really suck.

Or else the coaches really suck. Possible.
 
Or *GASP* our safeties may have actually improved.

I know most of you think that's impossible, though. :roll:
 
I was surprised to read that, too. Mr. Van Ackeren hasn't indicated on egriz that his son was playing linebacker.

The kid can play. Hermanson and Tully must have naked pictures of Delaney or something.

Nope, the Mickster's standard protocol is dumbfounding. Nothing new here, move along.
 
I know Kendrick van Ackeren is a versatile athlete, but at a little over 6' and just over 200 lbs, he is a prototype strong safety (D-I-AA) or a prototype free safety (D-I-A). The U of Hawai'i played him at weak side linebacker and he left the U of Hawai'i to play safety at the U of Montana.

Now, the U of M coaching staff is "giving him a look at linebacker." Kendrick could have stayed @ the University of Hawai'i and played Division I-A football if he was going to play weak-side linebacker. He could have sat out a year and played safety at the Pac-12 level or went to Eastern Washington University; he still can.

The business of collegiate athletics works both ways. I heard the Huskies and Cougs need prototype safeties.

Ken, have they been "giving him a look" at linebaker the entire Spring?

I am guessing due to injuries, and a lot of safeties, he is at LB. That may not last long, based on how many big plays safeties gave up in the final spring scrimmage tonight. They looked a lot like last year, from what I hear.

I hope you're right MGR. It just seems strange looking at this from the outside. We needed safteties and a talented kid ends up in our laps and we move him to LB, where we are so strong.

He was terrific tonight at weak side linebacker. Made multiple nice plays.

He's a versatile athlete; he could play multiple positions and excel @ the collegiate level. But, if he has a shot at the NFL, CFL or both, it'll be at safety.

He left the U of Hawai'i to play safety @ Montana not weak-side linebacker.

Someone should establish a collegiate athlete players association, too many young adults are getting trapped and used by the business of collegiate athletics!
