He sure uses the word "steal" very liberally. If recruits were chattle, this might hold some water. But, they aren't and his argument is (somewhat) invalid. I see he also thinks that recruits were "pressured" into commiting. Sparty likes to play this card, a lot, and yet I have yet to see anything directly attributed to a recruit, that indicates they were pressured into commiting. A lot of sour grapes IMO.
