Four-star-rated athlete Jalewis Solomon announced his de-commitment from Auburn on Tuesday, according to his Instagram account.

In an article on On3.com, Solomon said he rushed his commitment.

Solomon is rated as a top 200 player in the class of 2024 according to 247Sports’ composite ranking. He initially committed to Auburn in August just after the team’s Big Cat Weekend recruiting event on campus in late July.

The Georgia native picked Auburn over a list of schools including South Carolina.

A prediction on his 247Sports recruiting profile expects him to eventually choose the Gamecocks.

According to 247Sports, Auburn still has a top-20 overall recruiting class for 2024, ranked 17th overall.

Saw something this morning about him backing off. Hopefully we can reel him back in, but I remember when he committed that all signs pointed to him liking the Cocks.

Also, I don’t know how you can look at our defense as a high school DB and not salivate. Such a fun defense to watch.

We didn't want him anyway.  He hasn't been on the roster since the Sugar Bowl.  We already roll 10 deep at....well, whatever position he plays.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

Meh.  He wants to play WR and our coaches wanted him as a DB.  The cocks promised him a shot at WR.
Much like WT and Snaggs, he loves the cocks.

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

One of our local sports talk guys is a former Bama beat writer. He can't help himself.  Every time he mentions Auburn and recruiting, he has to throw in a, "IF they can hold on to these guys."

The reality is, we're most likely going to lose a few more from this class. But, we're probably going to flip a few more ourselves before it's said and done.  And so is Bama.  And so is Fuck Georgia.  And Tennessee and LSU etc.  That's just the way it is now in the NIL world.

when you play with the big boys in the nil world, this happens. this is happening to a lot of the top teams as nil bids float around. If anyone is on the ledge over this, recruiting in 2023 may not be for them.

I’m not a fan of the “athlete” tag. I want dudes who know what they play and are damn good at it.
Gus filled the team up with “athletes” and barely had enough to catch the ball.
They days of lining up and just whipping your guy with talent is over. You have to have talent and skill.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

He seemed to chase stars and not worry about roster management/shoring up depth where it was needed most (hint: offensive line).  Couldn't agree more.  I have been pleased with Hugh's strategy in finding specialists thus far to fit what he is wanting to do in the future.

Guy I work with is a UCF Alum from Orlando. Talked to him a solid 20 mins yesterday at the office and asked him "well, what are your thoughts?".....his response was like Deja Vu - in re to Auburn 2018-ish. Gus is crazy consistent with some of these bad traits. 2 very Gus-like games and gets an extension in between. It's just uncanny how this guy does it.
