    You can tell they’re going to try and force his son to go where THEY want him to go. That is all. This would be over with for us by now in a good way if they got out of the darn way

    Ugh. Hate these situations and the drama. And so sad for the kid. No problem with parents helping a kid make a decision, but forcing him to do what they want is unfortunate.

    When he turns 18, can't he pick his location without his parents?

    Just curious, where do his parents want him to go to school?

    And im not saying they’re all in the interviews saying “I want my son at Michigan blah blah blah” but certain quotes that get out make you get that feeling.

    AND YES ILL ADMIT THIS A LIIIIIIIIIITTLE SOUR GRAPES ON MY PART lol but yea a quote like this makes you hope they’re speaking independently and not applying pressure to him:

    I'm told, they have backed off a bit. Maybe not as good a visit as had been hoped for by the parents.

    For the record, a parent being involved in their child’s recruitment and having a preference is no problem, none at all, just hope they aren’t PUSHING him to go someplace he doesn’t want to go whether it’s UM or UF or any school

    If he ends up being a gator it will certainly be because he WANTS to be. He’s doing a tour of the SEC plus others.

    These kids, especially 5 stars are under enourmous pressure. Everybody has an opinion. Some in the kids best interests, some in their own. That includes parents. Not every parent is scrupulous, sadly.
