Who knows what they are telling him. Whatever works. A crock more than likely. Young kids are going most likely going to buy whatever is sold to them. Our competition has no qualms about actively trying to steal our recruits, and it's about time we did the same otherwise we are going to suffer. We need to rebunk our policy of not recruiting kids that are committed somewhere else. The honor system has been thrown in the trash as far as that is concerned. We seem to be the only ones abiding by it.

2015 NSD. Shit time flies when you get older .How'd I miss it . The turdhounds from Tennessee get to even recruit and sign players before ANYONE can . What the hell , can anyone report this to some agency to stop this illegal practice. we just finished 2014 nsd and they have an loi for 2015 . smells fishy to me .

Default Re: 2015 Commitment - Dexter Neal, Jr.

on 247 they put up an article. It seems McClain snitched on Nebraska negatively recruiting us. There doesn't seem to be much honor and integrity left in recruiting anymore. I am never going to think negative recruiting is acceptable in any situation, but there are other aspects of recruiting where it just doesn't pay to be honorable. If the kid hasn't signed a NLI he is he is fair game. There is nothing really unethical about going after a verbally committed kid as he still hasn't made a final decision. It's too important to pass up on guys that could help us just because we want to be polite. "It's just not a polite business, it's war.

Morrell picks Williams to flip and you say its unlikely but a prediction for Neal and he's automatically gone. Make up your mind...

He'll probably flip, but what does that mean this early? Not much.

There needs to be an early signing period for football like before their season starts. Then a team would have time to fill their needs if they missed during the early period and wouldn't have to worry about losing kids during the season.

And then stuff happens, coaches fired, the kids want to go somewhere else, they are unhappy. Then they'll just eventually never sign during the early signing period. Forget it. Too many headaches with that idea.

And yet still, even after seeing everyone freak the **** out last year leading into signing day, only to end very strong on signing day- what do they turn around and do? Freak the **** out at the slightest sense of bad news this early in the recruiting cycle?

Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity. Or, stick around in the Proving Ground long enough and witness it for yourself.

BAW and this kid go a long way back. BAW's tweets are pretty telling when it comes to what the kid is probably hearing. He mentions several schools promising you playing time, but not being able to follow through with it. At the end of the day, I think we keep this guy but it is interesting what they are being told.

People don't think he is a take for our staff right now. We just turned down a commitment from a 4 star CB from Georgia last night.

We have a ton of big time guys very interested in this cycle and we can only take 20-23 guys so slots are very competitive to who gets to commit or not.

Going to be interesting when some of those big time guys go elsewhere and Butch and co. have to come back to players they're turning down. I'm sure you'll land some but not all.

If DN Jr gets everyone this worked up this early on in the process, the board might crash when other schools come into the picture with Shamiek Blackshear.

Very true, that is a risk for sure...but better than taking the commit and then turning them away later right?
