You're fast... Just got the tweet
Now we can poentially take both Diamond and Garnett...
yay. and aw shucks!
Best of luck to the guy, I'm just glad that we've positioned ourselves well to pick up some equally talented O-line guys in his absence.
I think this is the best of both worlds. Stacey gets to play closer to home and we have more room to sign better players. Its not a knock on him, its just reality. Wish him the best of luck, and lets hope Garnett and/or Diamond/Kozan commit.
This comment is kinda of asinine. There is no guarrantee as of now that either will commit, much less both of them. If we get neither, our depth at OL is down one body and that will hurt
No its not. I never said it was guaranteed we were going to sign anyone else, but the chances are good. We now have room for two OL and those two could be filled by potentially better recruits. Not sure why it is asinine. Lets wait and see if we get any more commits before you go saying a comment is asinine.
I have a feeling this is part of the reason he switched his commitment. Definitely more playing time eslewhere, especially with the recent news that at least one of these guys is (probably) on board.
Edit: Also, if we do land both of them, that would make our OL class two 3-stars, two 4-stars, and three (!!) 5-stars (to at least one site). Holy smokes.
I think we could even see everyone winding up with 4 stars or better (from at least one ratings service) before things are through. I'd be more surprised if Braden went down or steady as opposed to up. He's got some good buzz now, as does AJ Williams. Bars' school seems lower profile, so he might not be able to move up as easily, but the talent is there.
Good luck Caleb
His upside from this? He gets to practice, every single day, with LEVITICUS PAYNE. I'm happy for the guy. I just wish I were even lucky enough to meet LEVITICUS PAYNE.
Wish him the best.
It couldn't have been an easy decision.
WTF? He was like our second commit?
Out third, Standifer, Brown also.
Edit : Sorry misread it, he was our second commit and 3 over decommits.
Yeah, and that's the reason I'm disappointed. I can't say I'm surprised with our OL haul though. I wish him the best of luck at Cincy though.
Best of luck to the kid. Committed to play before everyone knew how good this class was. I hope he does great things at Cincinatti. I think our OL haul is still top notch.
That is a very ignorant thing to say. You know nothing about Caleb or why he decomitted.
Wow. Just, wow.
I hate you.
This is beyond stupid.
Wish the kid the best and move on.
...Or maybe he has family issues and wants to stay closer to home. There are millions of other reasons as to why he wants to goto Cinny over Michigan.
You can obviously read minds. Kudos
There are also players who can "literally" spell.
study hard, and keep your principles in-tact. I hope to see you in a new years day bowl.
I would be upset, but oh well. Best of luck to him!
I wish him luck. I think everyone can understand his decision.
Luckily for us, our O-line class this year isn't too dependent on one guy so hopefully everyone comes out of this positively.
Good luck man. This guy was the second commit in our class. This is sad.
I still remember that letter from his high school coach talking about his character. Hope he does well in football and in life
Good luck at Cinci, Caleb. I can understand where he's coming from...would have been extremely hard for him to work his way up the depth chart with the OL haul we have coming in.
I'm glad he gets to stay home and play, and be close to his family. A lot of kids don't get the chance to stay home and still play division 1 football. Good luck to you, Caleb.
Good luck at Cinncinatti Caleb!!
Hope not. I don't know how good his HS program is, but that won't sit well with his coach in the future.
I don't think it was even that much of a hint. The coaches have made it very clear to all the recruits and players since day one that they have to compete for playing time regardless of prior experience or rating. They've made it known that they were going to continue recruiting OL because they want depth and competition. If Stacey did decommit because he was afraid of playing time, I'm fairly certain it wasn't because the coaches told him he wasn't going to play.
these coaches say every one competes no matter what and the best guys play. no way they called him and said they have better guys or lots of guys so watch out you may not play. That's some saban shit.
Now he may have figured it out on his own.
The odd one out? I disagree. I think a lot of people had him pegged as the eventual starting center.
youluck you know our recruiting is going well when your first response to this news is "best of luck to the kid, wish he stayed but does not hurt that he left.". As others said, I hope he does well at Cincinnati.
Cincinatti's putting together a pretty nice class. Hopefully, he does work down there and gets a chance to knock off OSU anyway.
Best of luck, Caleb.
If he has a girlfriend at home, I blame this on her.
the power of the ........woman. I had a HS teammate that made all state. He was offered by Bo but chose to stay home for his gf. She left him for a married man 1.5 years later. Now he is a janitor.
