A guy transferring is not "something else". It's a guy who knows he isn't going to see playing time here making the decision that he wants to play. If anything, the prep school thing couldbe seen as "something else", but realistically that happens and isn't necessarily a symptom of oversigning. Eddie George went to the same military prep school that Michael Thomas and Cardale Jones went to. They all had reasons, grades, maturity, etc.

There is something that no one in the national media has pointed out. Tunsil claims that this video was when he was 17. But look at the flag on the wall behind him. It is a "confederate battle flag" with "Colonel Reb" (The Ole Miss mascot) and the words "rebel pride" on either side. He's from Florida and didn't commit to Ole Miss until signing day. So he's either lying about being 17, or this video was shot while he was on a visit to Ole Miss.

One guy with an ax to grind, who posted information showing 2 athletic directors were involved in funneling money to a player.

It's easy to sit here and say that a player who didn't get drafted made a mistake. Hindsight is 20/20, and we just don't know all of the facts. That being said, I wish Tyvis had stayed. He's one of my all time favorites considering he committed in the midst of coach Tressel's resignation and all that he said at the time of his commitment. Plus, he's a funny dude and would have brought some needed experience in the back end. But he's gone now, hope he (and the rest of the undrafted) catches on with someone.
