FYI... Adeosun to UVA, Outlaw to Tx Tech. Bummer.
It's hard to accept losing recruits to Virginia and Texas Tech.
I don't think Adeosun was all that surprising as James said OU basically stopped recruiting him after Savage committed. However, James said OU had a good chance to sign Outlaw.
Apparently Tech offered Outlaw and two of his high school teammates. Kind of a package deal. All three of them took their visit together this past weekend. The other two were are a low three star linebacker and a two star receiver. I'm sure his buddies had some influence on him.

.....from ga to lubbock.......that's quite a culture/landscape shift
Right. Here's James' comment:
Best of luck to them both in their college careers.

It was heck of a weekend, but come next fall, they will be waking up every morning in Lubbock, TX. Talk about paying a steep price for a weekend of fun and frolic.
Kittle really has to go. You have to cut your losses now - guy is in so far over his head
Only reason OU got Savage was because of D. Williams.
I'm hell when I'm well.. And, I am never sick!
True, kind of like the Trent Williams circumstances a few years ago. We likely would not have recruited Savage without D. Williams (see very late offer) and we likely would not have signed him without D. Williams (see very late offer).
UVA is a perfect fit for a guy with Adeosun's interests. I would have liked to have taken a chance on him though.
Home Run for Adeosun. He may not win any championships, but a UVA degree is worth $$$$.
Kittle was 0-fer.

I will give Kittle some credit for Lane, but I also give S&C and patton credit too. At the end of the day though in college football you have to be able to evaluate and recruit and he has proven so far he cant do it
One high school offensive lineman. One. We were told that they planned to sign 3, possibly 4, high school tackles, coming into this year.
I wonder what this oline class would like like today if Stoops had hired an established elite recruiter like Adam Klemm, for example, 2 years ago instead of Kittle, who had never done this. For a top 5 national program, and a head coach who is paid like a nick saban, this is unacceptable. If we don't have the beaches, we sure as hell better have great recruiters, Bob.
amen........been saying this for 3 years
The world hasnt ended.... Surprised by Outlaw but not after reading about the situation.... St John is huge get and was most important....TE wasn't really recruited except for maybe 1-2 JUCO's.... cant blame kittle for that.... Daimler I think will be a good one with time.... All is not lost guys... calm down....
