this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
247 is reporting Mike Weber to USC??? [FALSE]
If you win they will come
FWIW no other source is saying this yet...
That same page says that Tyrone Wheatley is recruiting him to Syracuse.
It's not on twitter so it can't be true!
Clearly, Sarkisian dusted off the "Ronald Johnson" page from the "Pete Carroll Recruiting Primer" in the desk drawer of the head coach's office.
Well...that was unexpected. Winning would help to avoid this in the future.
Just heard from Rivals that this is NOT true. Feel free to delete. 247 meant to show that he picked up a USC offer.
and there was nothing indicating interest either way so I thought it had to be a mistake.
Thanks for clearing it up.
If this is true it shows how an early commitment can end up screwing you. You stop recruiting other players and if the early commit decommits you may not get anyone (at a specific position). I guess you have to recruit everyone until signing day no matter what.
Mike Weber is not, and has never been a M commit.
I think he is saying the staff stopped recruiting Weber after Harris committed and have been trying to play catch up since Harris de-committed.
But it doesn't really make sense in the context of what he said. Oh well, moving on...
He'd be available in the summer of 2016, just like every single midwestern kid that leaves for USC. They all come right back after a year.
Ronald Johnson agrees.....
Ty Isaac and Kyle Pratter do agree. 66 2/3% is a decent ratio.
Yeah, I would be VERY surprised if this was true. I think 247 made a boo-boo.
If you look at his timeline, he has never even visited USC and they don't actually show an offer from USC on his 247 page. And while the Crystal Ball is never the BEST indicator, it only shows B1G teams.
The 247 site doesn't even show it anymore. So it's not true.
If we have a promising season (9+ wins) I think we will land him and the other top targets we are seeking.
Luckily WOTS is that we will go undefeated therefore all the top targets we are targeting will be targeted and hit our target.
The ultimate click bait ploy. Just "accidentally" report a major recruiting surprise and the readers will come running.
Yes, I B D.
He is Mike Hart 2.0 with nitro fuel injection. He's tough. ..a national recruit and right from our backyard. He is a must have in my opinion. This kid has All B1G potential.
the Ty Isaac trade. We are also getting a player to be named later.
His name is Su'a Cravens.
Refused to be 'Rick Rolled'...
Well, if you can't even complete the pattern 2,4,6...i mean, come on.
