I'm far from convinced this was ever close to the certainty that the early projections & feedback indicated. I think it's very much up in the air & has been all along.
Just sayin. Now he is planning on announcing on June 27th. Still hasn't visited USC to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please feel free to correct me.

garnet black 215 is correct. And this whole thing is not setting up well right now. It could absolutely change but right now I just don't see the reason for a lot of the optimism.

Optimism is not in some of the user's vocabulary on this board, even though there is 9 months to signing day.

No idea what this means. garnet black 215 just reported information straight from the players mouth. You can choose to believe what he said or not.

Maybe in your world him naming a top 4-5 schools that does not include USC is a positive thing, in mine it's not. He's suppose to visit here for a camp sometime this month, or was at least scheduled to, maybe things change drastically at that point if he comes. But we're dealing with now & right now according to the prospect we are behind multiple teams. That is reality, and reality is very much in my vocabulary, how about yours? Also nobody on this board has written him off that I can recall.

Saw on Twitter McGirt was sent a photoshopped cover of an ESPN magazine with McGirt on the cover. Apparently we're doing this with all our recruiting targets:

Here is Korn's article dated June 4....after reading this, it sure seems like he changed his mind in a hurry. Also, just because he commits, I doubt very seriously if we stop recruiting him. He has always said academics is very important to him because most of his family graduated from UNC. Perhaps he hasn't heard about some of their "transgressions" lately.

McGirt thinking hard about USC as decision nears
By Phil Kornblut
OL Emanuel McGirt (6-6 272) of Durham picked up an offer from Georgia last week and is interested in finding out more about the Bulldogs. He has added the Dogs to his favorites list replacing Virginia Tech. The others on the list are USC, North Carolina, NC State, Duke, Florida, Vanderbilt and LSU.
The Gamecocks have recruited McGirt very hard for one of their offensive tackle spots and right now he considers them to be one of his front runners.
"I definitely like coach (Shawn) Elliott, he's a good guy," McGirt said. "I like coach (Joe) Robinson. They've been recruiting me for a while. I really like the coaching staff. They're all good guys. They need tackles in this class and they feel like I can be that guy to mold the offensive line around a couple of years from now. They came down twice (this spring) and sent me hand written letters from the whole staff."
McGirt has not yet visited USC but plans to visit within the next two weeks. He also plans to visit Georgia while on that trip.
"I don't have an official top four choices but if I did they (USC) would be in there," McGirt said adding the rest of his imaginary top four is North Carolina, Duke and NC State so there's the obvious argument being made for him to stay close to home. "Of course, they always throw that pitch line, don't you want to be the hometown hero. But I have a chance to play in the best conference in college football and as a competitor you want to better yourself and have that opportunity."
McGirt is an excellent student who wants to major in pediatric psychiatry or veterinary medicine, so the academic side of things will weigh heavily in his decision making process.
"I come from a very strong family with academics," he said. "Academics is very important in my family. Athletics, I just want a chance to play and I feel like at those eight schools I'm needed. I'm not going to go somewhere where I'm not needed or go somewhere and be just another guy on the depth chart. I want to go somewhere where I can have an impact. At every school I listed I can make an impact early or after my redshirt year. The social life is pretty big. I don't want to go to a school where I'm not going to have a lot of friends."
As an aside, McGirt said his favorite football player is Jadeveon Clowney and includes Clowney's number 7 from his USC days as part of his Twitter address.

The UGA offer has had a pretty big impact. We sure fell out of this one pretty fast.

tarhole insider says it'll come down to holes or NC State. He doesn't think the UGA offer will amount to much. Looks like we'll, hopefully, get one chance to make a big impression.

JC on TBS changed his prediction from USC to UNC today based on new information. That's where all his family went to school.

Fedora is doing work this cycle. He has seemed to have made a lot of headway in closing down the borders. Chalk me up as someone that believes he should be on our short list if he keeps it going.

I'm far from sold on Fedora. I hope like hell we can do better than that when SOS hangs it up. There are several on the current staff I'd take any day before Larry Fedora. To each his own but that hire wouldn't excite me one bit.

He had decent talent this year & parlayed that into a 7-6 year with a loss to Duke, & giving up 55 to ECU.
