Always searching and hoping for the next Kory Sheets ... would be nice to strike gold twice in the same decade. Cyrus has the bonus feature of being right out of college. (I wonder if his nickname will be radio).

Wonder what the inside goods are on this fellow? Why would he not wait till after the NFL Draft? With all these credits you would think worst case scenario he would be a late round pick......maybe hoping for a special year then jump to NFL as a free agent. If so someone did a good job of recruiting.
