Why So Serious?
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
Guys, no offense but we are all WAY too scared of this decommiting situation. Let's really look at this, what it seems the reasoning is for the last 3 years recruit decommiting:
--Cyrus & Calloway (THANK GOD HE LEFT!!!), both decommited due to family pressure, in my opinion it sucks but I understand. These people are the closest to themm I would take what my mom & dad thought into factor what my decision was.
-Yeldon, Foster, & Liner all seemed to leave due to the change in coaching staffs. Yeldon was recruited by Malzhan, and had said he was excited to have him as a OC. Gus left within a week or two we lost Yeldon. We know Foster's main reason for leaving was his relationship with the former staff (and of course his Daddy Trooper) was a MAJOR influence to whether or not he stayed. When they left, we lost our guarantee. Liner, a FRUIT who unless he grows up in next 2 years WILL not see the field in Crimson, (too much talent in front of him who will work for it, I could be wrong, but I would be amazed if I was. Actually alot of UAT fans I have spoke with think he will flop) left because he was close to the Chizik regime. I think Gus wasn't really fighting for him, he was to get hard working talents like Lawson, Adams, & (the guy who I would MUCH rather have) Elijah Daniel.
Folks, we have an AMAZING coaching staff, who is one of the best recruiting-wise groups EVER assembled (4 of them were recruiting coordinators last year at: Clemson, FSU, UGA, & Arkansas) & also PROVEN coaches at their respective spot. Also, we should not lose a major position/coordinator this year, so the staff will be consistent as hell. We will be fine this year, quit stressing & expecting the last 3 years.

From what I have heard he will commit to us during or after BCW, most likely within the next week, if everything at BCW goes good!!!!!
WAR DAYUM EAGLE BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!
