@703buckeye... Its not the unstable environment itself that is the issue, its how he handles the environment he has. If I had the football talent you can bet your A$$ my academics would be in order and I would not squander the opportunity to earn a top college education for free and a chance to play for one of the top 3 schools in the football nation. Just because he comes from Gary and fits a profile of inner city kid who did not place any importance on academics and then its too late to change it. Dodson's is an inner city kid (Not Gary level inner city) example of someone who is taking the initiative to improve his grades, improve his body and get ready to play at the next level, its taking him longer than the average recruit but he's working on it and he will be good when he gets there
I didn't disparage the kid in my original post, but we all know Urban can and will recruit better players with the proper drive and tools to succeed. And furthermore as I re-read his de-commit tweet it smacks me of smug self- importance. As I said before, we can and will do better, good luck to him. Down vote me if you must (again) but I don't think this opinion is out of line, it doesn't need to be popular but he has a responsibility to take care of his business to earn that scholarship and he obviously wasn't willing to do it. And where is Meg when we need her ??!!
