And buy him some nice J’s
For the love of god! Parents stay out of your kids recruiting. The decision they make is what’s best for THEM! NOT YOU!!!!!!!
A year from now his stat board will say:
Led FSU with 25 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks
Have a nice day.
Respectfully disagree. These kids are young, naive and easily influenced. In most cases (but not all) the parents are a little more objective and are looking out for the best interests of their kids.
Good for Mullen. FSU has trolled us too many times in the past in recruiting, and it seems the more things change, the more they stay the same. FSU's recruiting tactics are slimey, no matter who coaches there.
I see both points. Of course a parent is going to be involved in a decision of this magnitude. And MOST of the time they are looking out for their child best interest.
However, lol there are times when they have done their part and a young man needs to make the final move himself. For what he wants.
That said, don’t think players are the only ones enticiced by the cheap and easy lure of the bag men’s wares...
Totally agree. What is the point of coming at all if you know you won't be signing? It can't really be all that much fun to walk around and look at stadiums and dorms and locker rooms and coaches offices and waste time getting to know players and coaches you will never see again. It's nothing but a waste of funds.
There most definitely are parents who are looking out for themselves over their kid, which is one reason I said "In most cases (but not all) the parents are a little more objective and are looking out for the best interests of their kids".
But while they may also look out for themselves and take some sort of benefit (money, car, job, etc), I think the number who would actually choose to take for themselves, knowing that it isn't in the best interest of the kid, is relatively small.
At the same time, I think there are relatively few parents who would not respect the choice of their son. I believe that if Fuller's mom thought he was seriously interested UF (even if that's not her preference), then she'd probably be willing to at least make the visit with him.
I don't want to be that guy that says if UF doesn't get him it's because the other school bought him. But this one smells. Louisville? Something smells. His Mother must really dislike UF or perhaps is not being courted the way $he would like.
Here's is offer list fwiw.

Maybe Mullen smelled it too?
Didn’t some of you work for the phychics friends hotline
Knowing what is inside parents and kids heads and knowing which one has the best interest in mind
Is a true gift
I was talking about the parents that make the kids decision for them. I should have clarified that. When my daughter started looking at colleges for lacrosse, UF was where she wanted to go. As a diehard Gator, I wanted my daughter to play lacrosse for UF. But after camping there she was just not happy, for whatever reason. I wasn’t going to make her go there. Sure I was involved with her recruiting, but my number one thing was, I wanted her to be happy! These kids should also pick a school that they could see themselves at whether they were playing a sport or not.
I never understood this and never understood why coaches recruit guys who don't have them listed high on their list of schools. Like Dontae Lucas this cycle...anybody with a brain knew he wasn't going to flip from FSU but I felt we wasted time on him when we could have put that focus and recruiting effort towards another OL.
I guarantee Mullen has seen it all from his previous time here and from slimy ole miss.
why are we even talking about somebody who doesn't want to be a Gator. Lets focus on those that do.
More importantly they know better than to swing at the piñata blindfolded. If Mom is not willing to come they know she would likely dissuade in private. I’m glad they aren’t desperate. He’s a good prospect but barely top 300.
Who would you like to discuss?
