Amari is the best football player he has ever seen. Said wait till you see what the 4th qtr program did for him. Stronger, faster, unstoppable. Predicts that he will be remembered as an alltime SEC great. He has seen a bunch of great players in practice settings at a bunch of schools. Tifwiw.
I dig it
Sounds great. Would be great for Bama's QB/WR recruiting for him and AJ to light it up this year.
He does look like he's more ripped in the practice pictures. Can't wait to see what he does for a sophomore encore.
I absolutely love that Amari has all these other great tools in his game, as well as the work ethic of the greats to go with it, it seems. But, his first and foremost greatest tool is his hands. Unreal, soft yet strong when he needs it hands. I have only seen hands like these once before catching a football and this other player is going into the NFL Hall of Fame this year. This player is one of the 3 or 4 all time best WR's to ever play the game at the highest level, and is known by one very cool nickname...
All he does is catch touchdowns! One Cris Carter. Until now, he had by far the best hands I had ever seen on a wr. Now, maybe in time and as Amari continues to grow through his career, we will have the next.
What the OP stated doesn't surprise me. Amari absolutely floored me this past season with his combination of hands, ball skills, agility, and explosive burst. Rare that you find the super athletic WR that also elite hands.
Again, as the OP stated...... I think he could go down as an all-timer by the end of his Bama career. He looks so smooth....just makes it look easy.
FYI....some questioned his pure speed.....he ran 4.38 at a Bama Camp in the Summer of 2011, between his 11th & 12th grade season.

You get out of it what you put into it!
He pretty much got open at will last season. I lost count of how many TD's we left on the table on overthrows after he left the coverage in the dust.It's hard to believe he was a true freshman, Julio 2.0 - maybe better. I'm editing this to add he has much better hands than Julio.

AJ in the film room - "You are about to see the WR run the wrong route(against Ole Miss) and still score a TD thanks to a great throw by the QB". Said they crack jokes on each other constantly.
Give us the full discussion:)
ANYONE that would question Amari's speed after this past season is nothing but a....well....dumbass Barner....
+1 for thinking exactly the same thing I was. I thought of Cris Carter as well.
He is a keeper!
The guy moves effortlessly. The way he absolutely dominated Damien Swann in the SEC game on that TD that won us the game was incredible. His attention to detail on his routes, his adjustments, and his body control are things I've never seen at Bama. On some plays he looks like a 6'4 Julio or Crabtree. The next he makes moves that make you think he's a 5'9 type like Prothro. The guy he reminds me the most of both size, route, and speed wise is definitely Torry Holt.
I hope we practice inside today..me and @HaHa_CD6 Don't feel like chasing @amari_coop2 in these conditions
Highpoint Snatch, it's what's for dinner!!!
Lol. That's awesome.
Dig the Torry Holt comparison. +1. What I still can't get over is that he wasn't a top 10-20 player nationally. Seems like we jumped on him when others weren't recruiting him as hard as we were outside of the Canes.
Man sept can't get here soon enough
He's almost as good as me!! With my help he could be the best!
dont forget the 2 under throws against TAMU. He's leaving guys at will, which will promote a lot of safety help on his side next season I assume. That leaves Bell, White and Black to do things underneath..options unlimited if OJH gets in the action early in his frosh campaign. Hope the OL gels well, even greater things a coming. Didnt think it was possible
