She didn’t get the bag she wanted?
Waiting on Georgia or LSU to pony up more moola.
He’s officially in at South Carolina.. Gotta love the families who wants to control where a kid goes.
But.. Jordan is going to play where he wanted to play. He’s a few minutes away from USC and gets to play with his teammate/friend Alex Huntley.
So the letter got formally sent in? Glad he’s with y’all and not Georgia or LSU.
Yes it is official.. I also believe they were concerned about staff changes occurring as well. I know our defensive line coach is being considered for a job at Penn State.
Good. Glad he didn’t go to LSU. Reminds me a bit of the Cece Jefferson fiasco.
I wish the young man well, but if a 2020 commit was concerned about "staff changes", I don't think South Carolina is the place to sign. Chances are at least 50-50 that NONE of the current coaching staff will be there this time next year.
If he is where he wants to grow as a man and a football player then good for him. Not too many elite home grown talents. Gotta keep them in the fold.
Home grown can have some negative effects, like if he has "friends" who move him in bad directions. Good luck.
Agree 100%. We tried to keep our daughter close to home at the last minute. She got her way and it was the smartest decision she's made in her life.
Does Muschamp stay if you guys go 5-7, or 6-6?
Could depend on who the 7 or 6 is against
Criticizing a family for "wanting to control" ?
Its their kid for chrissakes what are they supposed to do... not care?
A couple of posters have stated some valid reasons why the family would want to hold things up...
Muschamp could be gone by mid-season
I think more often than not, the families have the best interests of their kids in mind and are trying to keep their kids from making a mistake they'll regret. At least that's their intent.
In most cases I would hope this is the case. Im sure there are some instances where the "mentor" or "handler" has other interests - but I think for the most part parents are just looking out for them. Its not D1 football related, but I had a similar tug of war with my oldest when choosing where he wanted to go to college. My wife and I knew that the school he was targeting was not a good fit and tried to steer him away. I dont have the time here to cover the arguments and tense family situations this caused. But Im sure glad it wasnt something all the world was following.
In the end he chose to attend the school he was fighting so hard for - and absolutely HATED IT!!! He was miserable just like we knew he would be. But we made him finish the 1st year and then he transferred to the school we thought all along fit him best. He is thriving there. I dont think myself and his mother were trying to "control" or "force" him into anything for our benefit. But we definitely knew what was best for him.
Just because these kids are superior athletes on the football field doesnt mean they are mature enough to always know what is best for them. They look like grown men on the outside but we are talking about 18-19 year olds. Who are being told whatever they need to hear to put their name on that dotted line.
Sometimes I wonder if posters on here have kids with all the “meddling parents” posts I see when a recruit goes to a rival. Of course when the parent is pushing them to UF, that’s a different story.
Cock, Dawg, Tiger......
And perhaps your child grew more from making that decision. That is part of life too.
If a kid was pushed to South Carolina, because of family then I don’t want him.. Let the kid go where he feels comfortable and wants to play at and that will give him the best chance to succeed.
