I watched the FoxSports interview with Cyrus and his family posted here on AUC. Cyrus seems overwhelmed with this decision. I think the "vibe" he felt when he visited Auburn is familiar to most of us. But his family know little about Auburn and they seem more comfortable with what they know which is Tuscaloosa. My opinion is that if Auburn can't get Cyrus and his dad and mom to Auburn for a visit soon, then he will sign with Alabama and go play with his brother. I think he wants to please his parents. Good luck to the young man.
Cyrusw needs to be at peace with his selection. No one can provide that for him other than himself. I have a sinking feeling that Cyrus is dealing with family and coaches who assumed all along that he would join his brother in tuscaloosa, so the announcment that AUBURN was his school of choice sent them into a tizzy. Immediate reaction was to throw jabs and ask how could you change "our plans for you" and choose to go somewhere other than bama? Certainly, the parents would have to split their time watching two talented sons play football, but to make matters worse, Cyrus would be playing for the enemy. This can't stand. Combine this with the rhetoric spewing from the bama faction that obviously weighed in heavily too, because the national recruiting experts had all called for a bama signing. Too much B.S. for a young man to deal with by himself.
Cyrus needs to get away from the talking heads and clear his mind before sitting down and taking an inventory of his personal needs and desires that support his dreams for a bright future. When he realizes which university and their football program offers him the closest match against his list, then he will be good to move forward and sign his NLI accordingly.
Make it worth your while, Cyrus. We would love to have you join the class of 2011 in AUBURN, but wish you well if you decide you need to go somewhere other than The Loveliest Village on the Plains. War Eagle!!
well I think a few of us need to step back and give his parents a break and let him and his parents work this out.
