You have two ships left for February signees, and you have the following three recruits on hold waiting to get patched through to your office to commit. Channel your inner Sumlin. Who do you take and why?
Alexander, Saviianaea and Foster.
Alexander and Foster. They are both program changers. The Savage is very good but not on these guys level.
Savage and Alexander. Something about Foster bothers me. May be a great kid bit the roller coaster that has been his recruitment isn't my thing
Alexander and whoever called first
Win we shall, yes we can, yes we will.
Savage and Alexander. Savage seems like the most level headed one and is probably gonna have the best chance to improve the most because of that.
Alexander because shut down corners are hard as hell to find.
And Foster is a little sketchy.
Savage and Alexander. Partly because we will actually land both and partly because I am wary of drama queens. Foster is a beast yes but I really think savage can be a great player and emotional leader in the middle. Hey he might even win a heisman because of it.
The australian and Mackenroes bro
I only recently started following all of this stuff, but why wouldn't you take all 3 and drop the lowest committed recruit you've got? I've been kind of confused by all the "numbers game" hand-wringing that's been going on. It seems like you would want as many recruits as you can get and have your pick of the 35 that you like the best. The Cobra certainly doesn't seem too worried about it. He'll probably keep scooping up 4 and 5 stars until signing day.
Now you have potentially burned a bridge at a school you routinely recruit from.
lol y'all need to watch Foster's film, blows Savage's out of the water
You shut your mouth about Isaac.
Alexander and Foster. Both absolute freaks.
One of the first films I ever watched from this year's recruits was Foster, and my jaw dropped. He is a monster. Anyone who thinks Savage is better needs their eyes checked.
Of course, all 3 and a drop of a grade risk or lowest ranked recruit (from a school we don't routinely recruit from hopefully) would be best.
I can definitely see that as being a potential downside to dropping recruits in favor of higher rated players. I wonder how often recruiting staffs take the feelings of high school coaches into account when they have an opportunity to land a player that could make an impact on the success of the team? It would seem that if they are thinking of dropping someone from a school that they routinely recruit from, they would have the type of relationship with them that would allow them to call them up, explain the situation and hope that the logical reasoning of the decision would be enough of an explanation. They would certainly have to be tactful and respectful with them but in the end, I would think that winning is the best tool for recruitment and top players help you get there.
Doesn't matter if he turns out to be a head case.
Why is he a head case? Both players have decommitted from schools.
Foster is a real risk IMO. certainly he is worth the risk, but of the three I think he would be most likely to transfer out or bust. On the other hand, if he came in, kept his head on straight and Larry Jackson got him in shape then he would be a game changing player.
Difference is, Foster has decommited 3 or 4 times already, and two times he decommited from Auburn. He has been committed to Auburn, UGA, and Bama.
Issac committed real early in the process to save a spot for himself at Stanford, but he found something he liked better.
lulz @ you clowns saying anything other than "Zadarious, Foster and Mack Alexander"
And I'd get if that happens 1 of the current D commits looms around/leaves on sheer comp #s alone
I'm going to say there are at least 3, if not 4. As long as we are dreaming:
4. Hall (dependent on Z)/ A Top Rated Safety
5. This is separate because of Za'Darius being a midtermer
