Title: I'm the BAGMAN!
Post by: wesfau2 on April 26, 2021, 02:07:57 PM
This is the closest I've been to the recruiting process.  My nephew (my older sister's kid) has a step-brother (his dad's new marriage) that is highly recruited.  He's gotten a UGA and FSU offer to go with this nugget:

Can he play TE?  If so, can we move him from there?  Asking for a friend.

With the offers he's getting, he must be pretty damn skippy.  I'm just glad to see some different recruiting tactics going on.  I could be wrong, but I don't recall us offering very many guys this early in their HS careers.  The occasional player going into their junior year.  Also, I posted a while back, quoting a recruiting piece that said Harbinz already had offers out to something like 70 offensive linemen around the country for next year.  It's a given that without quality big uglies in the trenches, you're only gonna' go so far.  Glad he gets it.

And this man knows a lot about quality big uglies.

To this point (early offering), a frosh QB from Gulf Breeze got a LOT of Bobo's attention yesterday and was told that the staff would be in touch with him after the camp.  Ditto two DBs that spent a lot of time with Zac Etheridge.

Nephew had nothing but positive things to say about the coaches, especially Schmedding. He also says that Tank is HUGE.

They offered Bobo's son yesterday.  He's a 6'5" 280 3* O-lineman.  Already has an offer from FUGA, so despite how much a loathe the pups, that tells me a lot.

What's that make you guys?

Absolutely nothing.

Exactly.

Unless we need to funnel money to the kid.  Then we have a long-standing relationship and he's like a son to me.

Latest update: Kid hated Bama.  Said the vibe was awful there.  Loved Vandy.

That’s interesting.
A place where it doesn’t matter if you play well, you’re still gonna tote a proverbial ass whipping every game.
Love your body. Go elsewhere. Love the school. I would have gone there had they gave me a scholly. But not if AU had offered the same.

They are investing $300MM in their facilities and the kid recognizes the value of that Vandy paper.

That Vandy “paper “ has always had the same value.
That beat up ass may not let you bounce dem babies on that knee.

I don't get the condescension.  The kid isn't a dyed-in-the-wool AU fan, so he's going where he fits.  A Vandy degree is substantially more valuable than an Auburn degree, generally speaking.  So he might never win an SEC game.  As the old Vandy chant goes: That's alright, that's ok, you're gonna work for us some day.

If the kid had his druthers, he'd be Clemson bound, but Vandy is his #2 as of now.

Not an issue. But it will come at a more physical price. Smaller school players always take a physical beating from the bigger schools.

A lot of boys have had a little Wes in them.
