    Franklin uses that as an aspect of his whole pitch. It was seemingly the sum total of LJ’s. My negative opinion of the man aside, there is no doubt he is a phenomenal recruiter. Lots of charisma with a big personality. Quite frankly I was willing to give LJ the benefit of the doubt when I knew his head coach was a principled guy who cared about our kids.

    In my experience Urban cares about football, period. Smith’s parents got that exactly right. Surprisingly honest and refreshing take. Think it might cause Smith problems in Columbus. That fan base does not like any doses of truth.

    I too was surprised by the level of candor from the Smiths, especially given that the son is just starting at OSU. Will be interesting to see where his career goes. Will also be interesting to see if these snippets have any impact at all on Mr. Harrison's recruitment (there, circled back to 2019! )

    I haven't seen any discussion of this on any Ohio State boards. If anyone does, link it please.

    possibly because someone was in his ear that LJ was retiring. makes sense to me. then he visited and UM/LJ said LJ was staying. done deal

    Maybe it was because LJ wasn't committed to continue coaching as opposed to retiring as LJ Jr. tweeted about.

    Thread should be renamed the "Tyreke Smith Thread". Funny how some of the same posters that have complained about others taking this thread off topic are themselves taking this thread off topic.

    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.
