Why would you choose to leave a national title contender to go to a dumpster fire? That would be a pretty stupid move. Plus, he could reasonably play pretty easily here given we lose two safeties this year.
Auburn's new staff will make him a big priority to the point that their collective dedicates more NIL money towards him than anyone else would be willing to just to make noise on the recruiting trail. Absolutely no other reason for him to flip to Auburn other than their collective throwing the bank at him. Hopefully he sees the better long-term fit in sticking with UT.
If he flips, so be it, but how many have we had decommit from this staff since last year that we didn't encourage? I really like the way this staff builds relationships and I don't just mean with recruits, I also mean with the guys on the team now. Maybe I'm wrong but I believe when recruits ask questions of the players about the coaching staff they get the type of answers they don't get from many other teams.This is the reason I believe they will lose very few commits, love the way they operate.
