I am happy to see him doing so well.  If I remember right, he had a pretty rough childhood so to see him in this setting is great.

The Mine / No. 17 QB Transfer
« Last post by kuhlero on Today at 11:48:12 AM »
17. Zack Greenlee, UTEP (from Fresno State) With Mack Leftwich sidelined for the 2016 season, Greenlee was a key pickup late in the spring for the Miners. In two years at Fresno State, Greenlee threw for 1,079 yards and 14 touchdowns to six interceptions. The California native did not transfer in time for spring practice but is expected to be locked into a tight battle with sophomores Ryan Metz and Kavika Johnson for the starting nod this fall. - See more at: http://athlonsports.com/college-football/ranking-college-footballs-top-30-impact-quarterback-transfers-2016#sthash.4Llgi0Xo.dpuf

That guy is amazing. I've seen him do tricks before and he's very good. He should have gotten the instant promotion or whatever they call it where he goes directly to the big show and all the confetti comes down. I'm glad I'm recording AGT as i'll be watching him some more.

How fun. The last card was slight of hand and when Simon named the card he worked on folding that 3 of clubs, pulled the card in front of Mel-B, put it in his palm where he had the folded 3 of clubs waiting, then pulled it out. That was the easiest part of the trick, but it got the most attention. What blows my mind is how he figured out how to shuffle to get all cards in order. Lot's of work went into that one.
More importantly, how can you not have fun with that act? When he retires from football, I hope he comes to UTEP and does a magic show.
Exciting and fun to watch.

Thanks for that Maniac.

He's gonna foul a lot at 1st. All defensive minded big men start off that way. The key is how long will it take for him to acclimate himself to the speed of the game. I hope he turns out to be like Big Ben Wallace. With fro and all.

heres a story from the Times where they speak to KJ.

A quote to consider:  Jones said, "I'm looking forward to being here. My game definitely needs four years. I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't thinking about the NBA someday. But right now I need to focus on where I'm at. Right now I need to work on my game. Coach Floyd has given me steps to get there and I need to focus on those steps."

We got another C Lang! You know how lucky Floyd is to get a young man like that mature beyond his years, has seen the under belly of human behavior through the evil cartel in his own community and yet stays positive and focused?!

This, my fellow miner fans, is what you call a true "diamond in the rough".
