I was thinking the same thing. I know there have been countless allegations, and they are simply allegations, but if he was part of past problems, I can certainly see the new leadership politely and discretely asking him to find a new place to play.
He could tackle until the horses came out to play. Watched him get ran over by the A&M's Mond a quarterback. All that talk about losing weight to get faster did not make much sense to me but I am not him. I understand that he is not happy but not a fan of how he has handled the situation. Poop or get off the pot.
I think National Recruiting director for 247 football knows a little more about talent than armchair QB's like us. Read his, and others, assessment on 247. He is fast and has good cover skills, and a great tackler. At UT he was at a disadvantage because he literally had to do double duty for line and other LB's mistakes. Of course he is going to be burned because it is humanly impossible to cover the whole field. I think at Ohio State it will be so greatly minimized and he will basically just be responsible for his position.
I do believe he has already been gone for months now...... my understanding is that he is taking on-line classes at home in California to finish out the semester. I do still think he is interested in Alabama and that is why he hasn't signed yet. If he doesn't sign by friday at Ohio State he will not be allowed to go there because registration ends then. The fall semester is when he can register then but that ain't going to happen.
