Oh, I'm calling "Recruit Speak" on that one. How does not knowing who your coach is going to be not impact your decision, at least a little? For a guy like Derrick, number 1 running back in the nation, he has his options open... why would he pick a school where Little Miss Tuffet could be coaching him next year? Hell, with the season Auburn has had, why would he want to go there at all? They're certainly going to be playing second fiddle to Alabama/Saban in-state for quite some time, not to mention LSU/A&M (apparently) and the rest of the SEC. Has anyone checked out his twitter lately? I haven't been on it but I'm sure someone will ask him if the news will impact his decision at all. He is probably just high on them/being nice because he visited on the 10th of November.
I did not make this headline up
