1. I don't think we should be getting hopeful about guys that have already verballed elsewhere. If a guy de-commits, or says, "I gave a soft verbal to _____," then we pay attention. But otherwise, we as fans start to sound like we condone poaching, which we all scream at Urban Meyer about.

 

2. Notre Dame never offered him, so I don't think there's much going on there.

Thats the last time I don't click on the link. :oops: :oops: :oops: I thought it was just video of him, based on the last sentence. Apologies, sincerely.

 

I think he's a prospect thats right on the cusp of getting offered. My bet is if a guy like Omar Hunter commits somewhere else,Tony Gillespie is the next one offered. Probably higher up on their wish list than guys like Goebel or Kabongo, but you never know.

It doesn't make any sense. He said that he was getting too many calls while he was committed to OSU so he decided to open up his recruitment but not deal with recruiting so that he can concentrate on his upcoming year. HUH?

 

I also read another article that said that he said he was having personal issues that he needed to get right. I have no idea what that means but it didn't sound optimal. I don't want to sound like a d!ck or anything but IMO he won't be getting much attention from ND. Unless my impression of what I read was totally off base.

tchris, u might be the most negative poster ive seen in recent weeks. does it matter who you're interested in? or who u want? ur right it doesnt matter. also does it matter what u think? nope. so let the coaching staff do their job, if they're interested in him or any other recruit, let them be. they've been in football longer than u, and know a helluva a lot more than u, so let them do their job. i trust CW and CB, so if they want these guys, guess what...me too!!!

It may be off base then, because Scout just posted an article with him saying that he did de-commit and he's "open to all schools, especially big ones like ND" !!!!!! He also goes on to say that if ND picked up the interest again, he'd love it and they'd have a real good shot.

 

He also enjoys playing the nose in the 3-4 and actually has played it during his freshman and soph yrs.

is this kid academically inclined???????

 

Really not sure on that one, i've never seen any type of gpa or ACT score for him. But if the coaches were at his school, and they're starting to pick up the interest, he has to be at least somehwhat in the area of qualifying.

dread... I also read that article on scout and he seems interested, but not sure if it's real or all just smoke. He kept saying big schools, big schools, big schools. If he comes to ND's camp this summer or if he visits in the fall then I think we will know that he is genuinely interested.

I was saying that I didn't think ND would be too interested, not that he wouldn't be. I may have read too much into him saying he had personal issues and the whole business about getting too many calls that he needed to open up his recruitment. It didn't make sense to me until I thought about it more. While he said that the attn was a distraction and was interferring with school and his duties, what he may really be saying is that he wanted higher profile schools to look at him, now that they are, he wants to explore. It'll be intersesting to watch.
