Hey guys, sorry if this has been asked but do you guys feel like his rankings are justified? I have not seen him play but from what I hear he sounds like a stud. I am not a huge rankings guy but was curious just to see why so many tend to think he is not a top 100 type player.
I'd have him around No. 8 ILB and a 92 grade. Ranked in the 150 to 200 vicinity overall. So a bit higher than 247 has him.

Think this post will meet his dad's criteria and earn you the right to speak to him?

He's probably not a top 100 guy, but I think he's going to develop into a quality player. He's just not in that "elite" group. We have him as a four-star prospect, I'm comfortable with that.

That'll teach him to not give interviews to 24/7.
Some ceiling mumbo jumbo will be here soon. He's been to good for to long. Seriously underrated on 24/7.
Maybe this thread was started by his dad...
you got me
Will he have a better career than Vince Williams?
There is a lot to like about Levenberry, but the question marks remain about his play. I believe he is a top 150 player and I lean toward the 100-110 mark. He can play far too stiff at times, but so did Nigel Bradham, even in HS. I think he will end up as a very productive college player.

If i may ask but what is opinion of talent based on, his stiffness or flexibility in pass coverage or side line to side line ability? Speed? I don't have much issue with is ranking because it doesn't really matter. Just want to know what his weakness or strengths are and what are the opinions on him?
I think Levenberry is going to be a better college player than a HS player. There are a lot of people who are down on him and to be honest, rightfully so, but I do believe that he has the tools to be an all conference linebacker at the next level.
*Large frame with good size
*Does a good job of shedding blockers
*Solid when blitzing the QB
*Coverage skills are solid when covering tight ends, rather than running backs
*Gives 100% effort at all times and he simply wants to be great
*His technique needs to become more consistent
*He shows poor form when tackling; tends to thud tackle too often, rather than wrap up
*His speed is not what you look for with an 'elite' linebacker and it
*He's not very instinctive. At times, on game film and not a highlight tape, you can see him sitting back and waiting for the ball carrier, rather than attacking.
the weaknesses are the skills that can be improved with coaching the strengths are a must have. so I agree he should be a better college football player.
Life is good. Now lets go win another championship.
