Is it possible the source doesn't want it out either so it can be a signing day surprise?
More likely is Prince, Gustin and Hill
Great Hurry-Up Birm. I have the same feeling on Weber. Most Michigan people think that we were some random choice to flip to but in reality he had extremely strong interest in us the entire time.
Can you explain your Carlton Davis prediction more in depth? Have you gotten info that says he is definitely going to Auburn from either his side or the OSU side or is this just a hunch based on his recruitment so far?
He's more optimistic then before.
Honestly it's a lot of opinion. His source just says his opinion too. Nothing concrete.
And Beckner! And Hill!
Weird that Birm says this is a done deal, yet we are still visiting him on Thursday.
Will be interesting to see what happens!
Eh they're similar enough. The staff has treated Carlton Davis like a non-commit the entire process because they knew he'd be tough to hold onto.
Kyle Dodson flipped to us on signing day. Jamal Marcus too.
And while Davis may have had an offer from Auburn for awhile they didn't really start recruiting him until the last month or so.
Porter Gustin is doing the exact same thing.
I know he's not committed to USC but they've been his leader the entire process and he's visited them more times than Davis has visited us.
Get: K.J. Hill, Porter Gustin and Isaiah Prince
We Lose: Carlton Daivs
We Don't Get: Terry Beckner Jr, Damon Arnette
We Keep: Torrance Gibson
We could lose Miller, Barrett and Jones next year, Collier has never taken a college snap, Burrow isn't enrolled yet and Clark is a to-be junior in high-school. Yes they are great prospects but you never know how they're going to end up. That's why you always recruit QBs.
I'm getting to the point where I almost hope Gibson doesn't come here because no matter what he does or how good he is on and off the field, one mistake and our fanbase will crucify him because he was "dramatic" in his recruitment.
I call BS on Ferns trending WVU. Where did you hear that?
Part of it is that because he is already committed to OSU and Birm didn't predict him to OSU the first time, he cannot predict him to OSU now. So he's predicting him to the next best choice.
Although the noise has never been louder about him flipping but hopefully Urban's in-home on Thursday seals the deal.
Alex posted on Bucknuts that they absolutely DID NOT leak the info to the Bama site.
I could be wrong but from what I understand and remember, Holmes committed publically at the camp. He and his family shaked the coaches hands and hugged them and were all smiles and that's when the report came out.
It's not like Holmes texted Bucknuts, told him he committed, asked them not to report it and they did anyways.
This is false. They saw Jalyn Holmes commit and reported it. It was only after that Holmes asked people to not report about it.
Bucknuts was aware that Isaiah Prince was in town Saturday morning when he got here. They didn't release it until BamaOnline released it. Which is when Birm released it.
I don't know how BamaOnline found out about it but they were the first one's to report it.
Isaiah Prince has never committed to Maryland. Some people just thought they led.
Yeah it was released by Alabama's 247 site. Obviously if the kid is cutting ties with them they don't care about his feelings
Sorry, but are you saying you would take those four over Josh King?
I also realized I forgot Prince Sammons but he could be a OT.
Amazing Hurry-Up today, Birm.
With 2016 recruiting looking to be in full swing, how do you see the DE class shaping up right now?
We already have Johnathon Cooper and pretty much have Nick Bosa in the bag. Then we look really good for Auston Robertson, Josh King, Kyree Campbell and no Terrell Hall. Obviously we can't take them all.
Someone in his camp is convincing him to have backup options.
I'd be absolutely shocked if he ended up at Miami though. He has preached his entire recruitment that he wants to get out of Florida, Miami specifically. The city and state provides bad distractions to him and his development not only as a player but a person.
I really think he comes to OSU but I was also one of the few that still wanted him and still thought he'd be a Buckeye when he was naming Tennessee, Auburn and Oklahoma his leaders in the spring.
If people decide to spend their own money on recruiting information that's their own business. It doesn't make them dumb.
A lot of times there is good information to be had from these websites, even if most of the information gets out eventually. However, calling something dumb just because you don't like it is sort of close-minded.
I have a feeling he committed to Urb last week and is waiting until after singing day to officially announce.
Cool. Thanks for the info!
In the classroom or on the field? From what I've seen he looks like a prototypical split end.
