Then shortly after all this talk started, Langely became real high on SC almost out of nowhere and committed shortly thereafter.

All of that's a long winded way of saying that this isn't surprising and I don't know how much you can actually blame the staff for this when Carolina was clearly a back up option all along for Langley - though I certainly don't know what went on behind the scenes.
SMART EFFIN MOVE TOO! Carolina should have seen the writing on the wall quicker and said to this guy, 'adios!'

Did they demand respect? Because I used the word 'and' to complete the thought. Obviously we pined for this guy when we should have cut his @ss loose.

HE is one recruit. He is not the enitre class or the key player for this class IMO.

See this is what I don't get...we have some very informed posters blaming the staff..now they know more about this than I do, a lot more..but what else could USC have done if he didn't want to visit? Can't very well kidnap him and bring him to campus. If they did at least push for him to visit and stay in contact then there isn't much else they could do imo. Sounds like he just preferred uga..which does suck. Oh well..4 in a row next year in athens should be fun

Default Re: Langley decommits.....

Ridiculous... What the hell was the point of having all those recrruits for the UGA game and then blowing the shit out of them??? Looks like it helped us get one recruit (griffin) and lose another (langley), and now recruits etc seem to all have forgotten about our dominate win.. Once again UGA looks good bc of a piss poor schedule.. we play a tough one, lose two games, and are chopped liver apparently?

WHY a DB would choose UGay over USC (dbu) is beyond me.. especially one who talked us us up so much. Look at the track records please.. one team has multiple pro bowlers and starters, the other has Champ Bailey (old)

We needed needeed a big corner this class.. sigh. Really can't wish this guy well, not with how this turned out. I hope we absolutely smack him in the mouth

Why would you even think that's a possibility when there's an entire board dedicated to recruiting?

Yeah he sort of played us the same way UGa played him. They got him after stringing him along. Very similar to the way they played Griffin.

Just go steal a CB from another school or jump on a highly rated, non committed guy. Pretty simple if you ask me.

Okay, wasn't Langley and Griffin sorta friends? If UGAY decides to accept him, is it possible he'll switch as well?

Still have about 4 good Corners out there. Robbins, Likely, Williams, and Alexander. Personally I think Robbins would make up for losing Langley.

I think they'll try to make a last ditch effort to get Alexander. A few sites mentioned in the past after he decommited from Tennessee that USC could've been a BIG player for him. Grady Brown is his recruiter.

I also think Shedrick Williams will get a call.

His situation always sounded fishy. Even if the coaches could have done more it seems like he always wanted to go to ugay.
If he comes here great. If not we will move on.

Better he decommits now than in December, at least we have time to find a replacement. I just don't want the coaching staff to fill the spot with just anyone, if we can't get another good DB then fill the spot with another position.

I agree on Alexander. He has had interest in us before so we need to make the move on him asap.

It would be big if we could get Alexander. He looks like a stud. Plus to steal him from Florida would be the icing on the cake.
