That's who I am... a Sooner.
When a player commits then says he wants to take a few more visits to other schools that’s his prerogative. However it also shows he isn’t committed and is unsure of his choice. I think that in those cases the school should treat those players as players that have shown some interest but with that said should reopen recruiting to see if they can find a better player to take that players spot.
If this young man doesn’t want to play here that’s fine, I wish him well. We are one of the top programs in the country and it’s a gigantic honor to be offered to play here. If it’s something a player doesn’t want to accept that’s not a problem. I don’t think it detracts from us it just shows that he has other ideas of what he wants to do. He did us a favor really by backing out this early it gives us a lot of time to find a player to replace him that does what to play here.
And from another perspective, it again proves what has been fairly obvious over the last 5 years (or more), it is very hard to get top players out of SEC country, and the more national titles they win, the more TV exposure etc, the more the kids buy into it, because they have grown up hearing nothing else.
I thought the chances of getting the Broken Arrow RB next year would be diminished with both Ford and Bryant ahead of him. I'm ok with just one running back in this class and then shoot for two in next year's class.
As long as Murray and Peterson continue to star in the NFL, RB will be just as easy for us to recruit as is QB.
Normally I would blow a gasket over this however I don't think we are totally out of the picture though we are now a loooooooooooooong shot to sign him. Also the way auburn has pulled in players from all over the country I think that being in the See Everyone Cheats league will catch up with them.
D: All The Above.....
