Think it might be a tad reckless to say JSN and family could be bought or bribed into going there when there's been nothing to indicate they are the type to be swayed like that. I understand it goes on literally everywhere to a degree but Givler basically scoffed at the idea JSN would head there.

I mean it's recruiting so anything can essentially happen, BUT I find it hard to fathom Texas just now recruiting JSN breaking the relationship he and his family have with the staff/Hartline and undo a year's worth of trust established. Also find it hard to fathom their WR coach can come close to turning him into the WR Hartline can.

Givler does a bangup job giving his thoughts on this "faux" JSN situation.

Needless to say from reading that I don't think the family are real big on the horns.

Just found it funny he completely contradicted himself and the whole point of his post. Also find it funny when fans get butthurt over the decision of someone they'll likely never meet or get to know. This also is not my board it's ours however we do seem to have less trolls than other boards which is nice :)

You do realize you said you'd never trash someone for picking the home school then proceeded to trash said individual for doing so? In the same paragraph no less....

Comment 05 Aug 2019

How do you know any of that? Did you already perform a background investigation into the matter? Bc if our staff hired you to perform such an investigation then 

Comment 05 Aug 2019

Sooner DB commit Ryan Watts (TX) said he talk with Day almost everday and Hafley weekly. Said he might take an official for Miami of OH game.

FYI but Givler said people in Texas feel we have a great shot at flipping Ryan and he fully expects him to take an official. Said he's at the top of the board and we'd still take Elias or Kelee regardless. 

Comment 05 Aug 2019

Lmao so apparently our old pal Brenton Cox is transferring from UGA and was dismissed from the team. 

Would like to at least see an inquiry from our staff to see if it's a situation worth pursuing. Would've liked to see what he could become under LJ as a true DE not an outside 3-4 LB. 

Comment 04 Aug 2019

Just an FYI but Cam isn't bigger than Jalin was not sure where you see that. As for Bradford he's a member on Lancaster's track team that is one of the best in Texas 

Comment 02 Aug 2019

Givler did an article on RB targets:

- Jalen Berger: we can land him IF we push. Been dialogue recently

- Kevontre Bradford: Bears watching closely in coming weeks

- Torrance Davis: transferred from Glenville to Garfield Hts 

- Michael Drennen: in no rush to decide

- Zach Evans: longest of long shots

- Keyvone Lee: prob a long shot but a name that could pick up steam

- Jutahn McClain: expects the staff to gauge interest 

- EJ Smith: official visit this fall likely

- Lawrance Toafili: name to keep in mind to see what movement occurs 

- Miyan Williams: should get a look this season

Can you find out his current height/weight? On film he looks bigger than 5-11 190 and is been reported he's put on a lot of good weight this offseason. TIA

Comment 02 Aug 2019

The complicated thing for EJ is the official scheduled for Stanford in January. Now Givler said he had heard it's possible EJ may not want to wait till after the first signing period to commit. My preference would still be him first then Drennen/Berger. Now Gleitman did say this morning Alford spoke with Berger on Tuesday this week. He also said he thinks Jalen is hoping we pick up our effort recruiting him too. 

The one thing the previous 2 RB recruitments reiterated to us is that things can change on a dime in recruiting. So I always like to do a wait and see approach that includes a majority consensus from our insiders and a few national people in the region for OOS kids. 

But I think we should be able to land any combo of EJ/Drennen/Bradford/Berger. Then in the event we don't land any of those I would say it's an official disaster for that position this cycle. 

Edit: in the case of Drennen vs EJ the staff may actually view them as the same prospect for that role. If that's the case it might be a question of why waste the resources when you can easily land the kid that's in your own backyard.

Adding OH RB Kyree Young to the big board Ben though he doesn't have an offer to date. BG is really high on him and I believe he even said he might be the best RB in state. Per the below article Kyree is 6-2 210 now with a 4.5 40. Though it appears he does have work to do in the classroom since he said it needs to be a bigger focus for him. He also transferred to Buchtel for this season. LSU, Nebraska, WVU, and BC are some schools that already offered.

Forgot to add that he's already used up his Wisconsin official back in June.

Also my worthless player comp for him would be former USC back Ronald Jones. 

Comment 01 Aug 2019

Yeah Givler said they'd be talking back to him but he's still be on a lower tier even with the remaining targets left.
