    That’s entirely possible. However I’d wager that during the entire recruiting period LJ and Meyer never said anything other than that LJ would continue to coach at Osu. Just like they did with the running back a few years ago... Weber I believe?!

    worked miracles my ass.... he recruited great DL. They did the rest. the best recruit brought in was his son and it took too long for LJ Jr to get the starting job. LJ was a DC/Maryland recruiting machine... development????? Not so much.

    Good. I hope he gives you orgasms.

    The guy had a hard on for CJF to the point he told a player that was not ready for the NFL to leave the program for the NFL.His son, LJ Jr is 100 times the man the LJ Sr is. A lot of PSU yes men didn't like the frankness of LJ Jr. Well, LJ Jr. was right and his performance after being given the job he deserved, speaks for himself. Sr. lacks character.

    Really, convincing talented football players in the mid Atlantic area to play football at the best football program in the mid Atlantic area is what you consider working miracles? Guess what, I went to a convince store today and for a dollar and some change they gave me a 32 ounce soda! I am a freakin’ miracle worker too, just like LJ Sr....

    Let see? LJ's last DL line recruiting class at PSU had one 3 star from NJ and one 4 star from Michigan..... who were they? Also, Who coached them way up to their extraordinary performances in their senior years? SS and DG. Before that they were for 3 years... decent. The other NFL DE was a walk on that .well.... was discouraged by LJ Sr. Jr. has been PSU all the way..... SR.... like him if you like..... means nothing to me.

    In Lincoln, NE for work this week and just had dinner across the street from the HUDL headquarters. Just thought I’d place here for additional perspective.
    Btw, the Haymarket area is pretty sweet...

    You always have a shot when they visit especially by themselves! Yes, they have a real good shot. Florida is opening up.

    No, but according to Fitz, Hunter has several PSU visits planned. He will OV for the Ohio State game.

    Well with the NCAA rule change, when LJ retires in a year, Smith can transfer to PSU with no penalty ;)

    I know you speak tongue in cheek, but I think the article makes it clear, Franklin is done with him.

    I don't know Michelle Smith but what does she think it's called when you promise to do something and then don't?

    Should we really get upset about flips? If a kid comes on campus and has serious misgivings, will he look to transfer at the first bump in the road anyway? Lying? What's the divorce rate in the USA?

    You need to go back up and read again. You missed the point entirely. It's not what she did, it's what her son did.

    I read the whole thing. She's worried that her family (or her son) will be perceived as a liar. Well, if her son told James Franklin he was coming to PSU and then he didn't, then her fears have become a reality. Tyreke Smith is certainly allowed to go wherever he likes and he is allowed to change his mind, too. But none of that changes what a lie is.

    Really, picking a college is nerve-wracking enough as it is. We’re in good enough shape recruiting wise to make it easy enough to get over players flipping.

    I for one am glad Saquon went back on his verbal. I'm not saying I think people are bad people for de-committing after giving a verbal (silent or otherwise), all I am saying is that if you give a verbal and then you go back on it and are afraid you will be viewed as a liar then well, your fears are justified.

    I don't think Tyreke Smith or his mother are bad people. I don't know them but I mean her fears were justified in this sense.

    Did Tyreke Smith reclassify to the 2019 class?

    Lying is making a false statement with intent to deceive.
    The kid committed to play for PSU, intending to do so. He changed his mind and didn’t honor his commitment.

    Huge Difference in Intention.

    I don't even think they should feel about it. At the end of the day the kids should do what they think is best for themselves. If that means going back on their word they should and not feel bad about it. However, the staff or even others may feel they were lied to if they do. That's how it works when you give you word and then do something else. But again, no player should feel bad for giving a verbal and then de-committing.

    Roberson just got his 4th Star on Rivals. Do they know he's 5'9?.....j/k

    Just another 3* QB that CJF & co identified early and shot up the rankings.

    And I still don't understand why we need a second QB with Tommy coming back next year.

    Should Franklin & staff set up a conference call and try to explain it to you?

    I think it’s appropriate for people to feel bad when they don’t keep their commitments and let others down. Clearly, the 2018 decommit and his mother feel that way.

    Let’s try to get back to 2019 recruiting in this thread.

    The issue, in my opinion, is that Mrs. Smith made promises that she wasn't able to back up, because it wasn't her decision, it was her son's. This should be a lesson for CJF, make sure both player and parent are all in before you stop recruiting other people. As it happened, we weren't left empty handed, getting Parson's and Oweh, but not Smith, is hardly something to cry about. It's just not as great as it could have been.

    Average star rating on rivals is currently 3.89. For perspective, that's currently a higher average than Bama.

    I thought it was relevant to RECRUITING in general a story to illustrate what type of person Urban Meyer is, according to the parent of one of his current players. YMMV.
