Moses Douglass has not yet finished his sophomore year of school, but he’s already been on recruiting radars for several years. His lineage probably has a bit to do with it. Former Bears and Giants cornerback Maurice Douglass, who coaches his son at Springfield (Ohio), has plenty of recruiting contacts from both his playing and coaching days. But instead of trying to convince the younger Douglass to go to his alma mater, Kentucky, he’s showing him as many options as possible.

Josiah Price didn’t get invited to the NFL Combine, but that hardly matters now as the Michigan State tight end gets ready for the draft in April. Of course, he’s been told for a long time he didn’t measure up — not fast enough, not strong enough. Instead of buying in, however, Price became the all-time leader in touchdown catches for tight ends at Michigan State with 21. And he did it at a program that has made its name on overcoming the naysayers.
