    I read some stuff from a poster (I think before he signed) that claimed his teammates in HS didn't like him. But you never know how accurate internet posts are. :rolleyes:

    Was well known, they knew. Not the sexual stuff but kid is off. And urban should get blame for a lot of the kids he brought to campus. He brought a lot of bad seeds.

    I did. He was suspended for fighting in a game. Not normal fighting.

    He probably deserved to be pilloried about Ahern. If he was pilloried about joiner is was because another negative cloud appeared, not simply because of one man's actions.

    Yes Steve’s Dad was a great man that lived his faith. Funny story,my best friend is married to his niece and every time they would watch a game together he would jump up and change channels every time a commercial came on. He was puzzled by this and later asked her why did he do that and she said he hated how the beer companies glamorized alcohol. Mr Spurrier was a awesome pastor.

    Anybody have an update on Arjei? Looks like his Twitter profile has been stripped of Gator references.

    Not an encouraging sign for his academic/admission status.

    I won't make a lifetime claim but agree that it's pretty bad. Steele, J. Jones, Black, Hammond, Wilson and Henderson - six in total? Pretty embarrassing to be honest. How does this even happen?

    ^^^ and there were several others that almost did not make it in. When you don’t recruit well, you have to take a lot of academic risk kids to make your recruiting class look better. Some of these kids were not recruited by other programs due to grade concerns

    I'm going to say it and I don't care how many posters here get bent out of shape about it: Dan's not going to last here if he can't improve as a recruiter. There is simply no way we can suffer attrition like this and expect to stay competitive with UGA and others.

    It doesn't matter how many transfers we get. We won't be able to mask our depth issues if we keep losing recruits at this rate.

    What's the latest on Wilson? Is he a definite no? Last I heard he was still trying to figure out the visa.

    Seems like every factor that could go against that class certainly did. The margin for error for the next class (possibly the next two) is pretty much used up with the unraveling of the last one. Better meet the roster needs and have almost no attrition, or there is a mediocre setback season coming in the near future.
