Wow just chill out. I think Dawn and the coaching staff know more about these girls than you and I ever will. You think Dawn would sign a kid tht has a boat load of issues or was uncoachable ? Neither do I so we will have to trust her and the other coaches who will do their homework on this. If Dawn takes them, then I am good with it. People will try to trash others that don't do what they want them too. Clemsux fans wanted Clowney and drooled at the thought....when he didn't sign with Clemsux...he was stupid, couldn't get in, was overrated.....none of which was true. You can't draw a conclusion from disgruntled people she left behind or the ones she left at the alter. You do that...and you are the one that doesn't get it. You spread this crap on VolNation (yes, I see you there) and these kids read these post, you are not helping anything. You don't know personally so just let it go......

Why would we not want any potential transfer to consider all factors before pulling the trigger?

We're not Clemson...we dont want to hide anything from recruits. Just be up-front and let them make a decision that they feel is best for them.

You could provide a supporting fact, or at least a little insight on why you feel the way you do.

If Diamond is talking, it can only be good as far as I am concerned, no matter the outcome.

She want to make sure what she is getting into, and likewise, we have to do what is best for the team.

I stated that only because she left our program after her freshman year just like Diamond left UNC and I don't know if Bone left on good terms with Coach Staley.

I have a lot of faith in Coach Staley. She is the best thing to happen to womens basketball here at USC. She will make the right decision about DeShields. I have the same amount of faith in her as I do with Coach Spurrier. She knows what she is doing. I am excited about womens basketball and I am not even a big basketball fan. lol. Cannot wait until the next season starts. This is what good coaches do....get fans excited and filling the seats.

Absolutely. Tickets will sell based on the names A'ja Wilson, (and hopefully) Diamond Deshields alone.

Maybe Coach Staley suggested to Diamond to contact Kelsey. I imagine that the situation was brought up during DD's visit, so it would be a good move on Coach Staley's part (IMO) to encourage Diamond to get Kelsey's perspective on it as well. There's nothing that Dawn needs to hide in that situation and a move like this would prove it, again IMO.

I always was under the impression that the biggest reason Kelcey left was more about her mom. Didn't her mom move to Columbia with Kelcey? I could be wrong, but it seemed that was factor. Mom intervening, that is.

I don't even think Diamond and Kelsey are having a conversation per se, unless someone really has insider info. Kelsey tweeted something like this. "Going to A&M is the best decision I've ever made" (i.e away from USC and Dawn). The irony is that it was during Diamond's visit and she re-tweeted it. Then, a "fan" tweeted something to Kelsey, which prompted her mom to jump in.

Doesn't surprise me at all. This should get interesting.

I doubt it has an impact on Diamond, tho. Seems like very different circumstances to me. Dawn also has better players now.

According to Twitter, they were discussing different things via Facebook. No idea what their conversation is about and what it isn't about. A few obvious ideas:

1. She wants to know why Kelsey left USC, and if the same problems could surface for her. - This is good and bad for us, good in that she is very seriously considering us and bad in that Kelsey may have an ax to grind.

2. She wants to know more about how things occur in the transfer process, what to expect about that. - This probably doesn't lean good or bad for us.

I also don't believe that "going away from USC and Dawn" is what one has to come away with when they say that going to another school was the best decision of her life. Sometimes people just want something else.

For those interested, here is an in-depth article about Kelsey Bone and her family history. It's very long, but really pretty interesting.
But anyways long story short, the tipping point was her mother moved to Columbia to support her. But she didn't make the trip to a game at LSU due to distance. But of course it was close to her Texas family and they were all there. That really upset Kelsey and at that point she knew she wanted to go home. She was homesick.

I wouldn't gather that off of one post either. I'm not that juvenile. However, most of Bone's posts tend to be negative/neutral against USC. Almost, as if she doesn't want to acknowledge she's been there before.

The person that chimed in on that may be the biggest idiot in the world. Just look back at their tweets about Nunez when he committed to USC.

To be honest, it felt like a troll account, or an undercover Tater.
