I can't go into detail, but expect good news about one of this sites most loved recruits.

Assuming this is true I have to take a guess and say you're definitely referring to Torrance Gibson. In my perusing of ElevenWarriors I can say without a shadow of a doubt everyone on here loves that kid especially​ how good he is with media relations. The general consensus here is obviously skewed towards a desire for an athlete who can play quarterback.

Sorry, but what is the purpose of the post? Are you talking about football, basketball or futbol, maybe? Will we know today, next week, next month, signing day? If it is football, it would have to be Connor or Clark or Hilliard or Harris or ...

What's really sad is I JUST got a smart phone, and for the first time I actually fat-fingered someone, but then I corrected it. I never got the whole "sorry! I fat-fingered you!" until a couple weeks ago.

otrain2416's picture

No offense Ab1993, these threads are pointless unless you reveal what you heard. Everyone appreciates recruiting info and works together as a team on 11W to provide the community with good info. I understand people might know recruits on a personal level and may be asked not to say anything, but if they ask you politely to not say anything it means these posts too. Whether you know something or not this post is the equivalent of this:

Basically the staff has already mentioned some good things could happen with all the visitors and our camp. Without mentioning what or who you are basically taking a blind stab in the dark and will probably want some type of credit for it like you called it. Old and tired tactic,we are above that here.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

To be fair, I've seen multiple things on twitter saying that there is good news on the way. I think he had good intentions when he wrote this post, but I agree with others that this post is kinda pointless until we have more information. I would at least want to know who the news is about

They slow play Conner this long and then offer him? Does this mean they don't feel confident on another LB (SKL, Baker) or do they plan on taking three, maybe four?

Considering SKL is currently committed somewhere else....

+13 HS
sivaDavis's picture

Yes, I know this. So since he committed that means the staff won't continue to go after him? Especially since all the reports were that he was/is being pushed to FSU when his clear favorite for months was Ohio State? All FSU got was a guarantee that their in his top 3.

Didn't know that once you committed somewhere, there's a gentleman's agreement among all CFB coaches that you can no longer recruit said kid. If there is then Urban has pissed alooot of people off.

No need to get condescending... You used the language "confident" and I was pointing out that it is probably difficult for a staff to feel confident if that recruit just committed to another school.  It's not the end of the recruitment, but it's a solid sign to look at other options.

ESPECIALLY when that kid commits to the in-state major school that just won a National Championship and Heisman Trophy...

KINGBUCKEYE419's picture

I think after the Elite 11 and camping today he's proven himself worthy of an offer. If in fact this is about Conner which seems to be the case. I doubt it has any bearing on feeling they may miss on other recruits.

I'd take Baker,Hilliard,and Conner from Ohio and call that a stand up triple for LB recruiting in 2014.

I'd prefer that it was good news re: Kirk, Harris, or Hilliard. However, if it is good news about Conner, then good for him. I know that it is something that he's wanted for a while, and if still wants in, I think we'd all love to have him.

Birms silence regarding his crystal ball prediction of Conner to the good guys reeks of having respect for the kid (like always) and letting him announce that he committed when he's ready.

Several people now tweeting that Conner committed. 

 

Would have been nice to hold off and let the kid announce it. I wonder if they'll deny it until tomorrow when he announces.
