This. I was told he would be popping soon... and my friend was right... fully thought Blades was on board... I was wrong... but staff thought so to... even at one point told the coaches he was in... they wanted him... this was the number 2 guy on the board. Again, I was wrong. Sorry for the miss information.

You know better than that , it’s what we do . Kill the messenger that brings us the info to our FREE site then ask someone that has a sub. to tell us what they’ve heard . That’s why we can’t have nice things , some of us take too much pleasure in pointing out when the messenger is wrong knowing the whole time everything we hang on is based off of 17-18 year old kids and their whims . How many of us outside of this recruiting forum bases their decisions of others on the word of 17 year old?

Edit: that was a little more harsh than I intended but it’s early and I’m grumpy soooo yeah .
Lol all good. And i know just wondering why some people cant respect the fact that someone that has inside recruiting knowledge, spends his time to come on here shoot the ___ and let us know what he is hearing. I wish they would post more often. But i guess thats just me. 🤯🤯🤯

So it was mentioned that Oregon would enroll him for fall semester this year where e would have to wait a year to play at UT/SEC. If that's the case does anyone blame him? If he's as good as billed could he not be playing in the NFL one year sooner?

I'm a little confused as to whether he'll enroll this fall at Oregon.

It has already been said by some of the VQ and 247 guys.
Sorry, I meant from marker. I'd like to hear what he has to say about what happened, since he was so sure. We've heard from caleb I think. It's probably what everyone else was saying, but it'd still be good to hear.

I don't know how his answer could be different than blades told both coaches he's going to their school

Caleb FWIW I was being facetious when I said "so who is the non-viable source now?"

Figured some of these guys would want to burn people at the stake 😂🤣

Pretty easy to guess.

“He told the coaches he was coming to Tennessee but Oregon convinced him to change his mind”

I’ve done this before in this thread, even when Blades was virtually committed to us, but I don’t think he’d just walk into a starting spot here next year. I know, I know, all that talent and all. But he’s a one-and-done JUCO, taking reps from guys like Taylor and Thompson.

I guess I’m a little too confident in our coach’s coaching.

I really don't care...next. It would have been nice, but the dude is just a rental. These Juco guys are on the clock and have to do whatever gets them in the spotlight the quickest, so I don't blame him for taking the easiest and shortest route. Have fun in Oregon Blades, it's a beautiful place to live.
