I've seen the names mentioned together on Twitter. Does anyone have more information on the Will Lyles and Larry Porter connection?
Odd topic, what prompted this?
My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Porter and Lyles making out at 31 Flavors last night.
I guess they're pretty serious.
Try Baron Flenory.
When Porter was at Memphis I believe, he came out and said something to the effect that he and Lyles were friends and he supported him and he didn't care who knew it. I don't know exactly.
Hiring Porter shows some desperation by Mack - he would not have hired a guy like him last year.
it isn't about who reps the recruits they are after. It is getting the right guys and then getting them up to speed. the coaching and the development side at tu is broken. just look at the talent they send to the league that gets better there. they have the guys just can they get the most out of them. porter adds nothing to what they have in place unless he is just a better coach.
Well played Hugh
Good point. I think it's amazing Mad Dog survived their purge after 5-7. Complete lack of development with the talent they bring in. Very soft program, and the one good thing about that program walked out for Florida after 5-7.
I'm going to start using this more often IRL.
Hugh, what prompted you to look at porn while at work? Twitter.
Hugh, what prompted you to tell your co-worker that he's an incompetent piece of elephant shit? Twitter.
Travon Randle was investigated in connection with lyles and recruited by porter. Porter also said lyles was a great guy and didn't have a bed thing to say about him.
LSU assitant Brick Haley is the coach that attended recruiting visits to Clear Springs (Trevon Randle) and others with Will Lyles. Trevon Randle said in an interview during the Will Lyles media blow-up over Lache Seastrunk and Oregon that Will Lyles is really funny, knows the Baton Rouge restaurants really well, and is really tight with Coach Brick. ....Coach Brick told investigators that he didn't really know Lyles (yeah, right).
LSU also claimed that they only paid Lyles's company $6k one year for a CA and KS JUCO recruiting package, which does not explain Brick and Lyles hanging together and meeting HS coaches together in Houston, TX.
Re: Lyles and Porter, there is this:
"Memphis coach Larry Porter knows Lyles from his time as assistant head coach at LSU. After Memphis hired Porter away from LSU in November 2009, Seastrunk started considering Memphis as a college choice.
In an interview in July, Porter described Lyles as “a genuine guy with me so I have nothing negative to say about him.”
But Porter said he was unsure whether Lyles is a positive influence in college football.
“I don’t know the conversations he’s having with these kids when we’re not around,” Porter said. “We’re not around him much. Who knows where the influences are coming at the end of the day?”
“I think the kids listen to him. I do. Some kids he’s probably closer to than others. Some kids know that he goes around to a lot of different universities so some of them like to jump in the car with him. What goes on and what’s being said, again, I have no clue.”
