Despite backing off his pledge to FSU and committing to Kentucky, the Seminoles are not done with four-star defensive end Denzel Ware.

All I got from this was nothing he does should be taken seriously until NSD 2014. Kid is going to piss off a fan base somewhere.
His decommitment and subsequent commitment was hasty, but expected after Eliot left. He's already wavering on Kentucky for FSU again.

W/ UF and FSU battling for him and apparently Bama being interested I'd put the chance of him landing in Lexington at about .0000002%.
What is it with DE recruits being the flakiest people on the planet the last few cycles
In the end, I think he ends up being at FSU.
Thats if there is a spot left for him when he is ready (NSD). I'd rather have McClain, Street, Carter. Ware is in the Thornton, Featherson, Pugh, etc group (hybrid)....
I'm almsot glad he decommited from FSU. It seems to be harder to hold on to these kids once they verbal to you, especially when they are kids like Denzel.
Still think FSU has an excellent chance with him.
Would love to see him grow an inch this year. I really get nervous about DE's that are 6'3" or under.

If he ends up at Kentucky then obviously winning isn't a priority of his. Playing at probably the biggest doormat in SEC football he'll see his fair share of losses. Quite honestly it was a death trap job for Stoops, too IMO.

I can almost understand committing to a school early because that school might not have room, but I really don't understand a guy like Ware committing early and then saying he might flip. Its not like Kentucky will not have room for him..
I want this kid in our class...........he's a true football player that plays with an attitude......I was very impressed when I watched him play
Everette brown seemed to be pretty good at that height
Dwight Freeney is like six foot.
Elvis Dumervil, anyone?
Okay, thanks guys. You found me 3-4 guys that play at a high level under 6'3". I'm not saying he can't be effective at 6'3", I'm saying I would prefer him at 6'4".
And I'd agree for the most part. But if a guy has tremendous quicks and long arms that would help make up for a slight lack of height. Not saying Denzel is that guy physically though, I haven't watched his film yet.
hey i know what your saying....99% of the time i would agree with you and prefer tall rangy d- ends. but this kid reminds me so much of everette brown. do you remember how brown dominated against alabama a few years ago? thats exactly what ware brings to the table....speed, ferocity,and a knack for getting to the quarterback in a hurry....not to mention he is just as good at finding the running back and defending against the run game
Would the following length really have an effect on his ability to play DE (no input from you, ladies): _________
I think there are much more important qualities for a DE than 1 inch. Brandon Jenkins and Werner measured in at 6'2 and 6'3, respectively.
I hate it when posters do this. You say a certain player at a certain position does not bring the ideal height, size, or speed to the table, and they go and point out the "exceptions" to the general standard.
