No clue whether this kid will turn out to be any good, but this saga has apparently taken a toll on OD's interest in starting new threads on the main forum, so unless the kid is another Patrick Willis I think we came out ahead.
He will be back when the other dyersburg kid they were talking up is recruited in next few yrs. he will find a way to be his uncle or something

I have been very busy, but as far as Chris goes, the understanding of everything has bypassed. His family and I, have had enjoyable times here recently. It’s over, and I think everyone needs to let it go. All of the rumors needs to be put to rest, and I assure you that everyone else is pulling for the young man, and is hoping that he takes a spot away from someone out there. I’ve told him not to get caught up in no distractions, no parties, and study really hard in his classes. I’ve also told him to take charge and don’t let no one push you around on the football field, and try not to get homesick. He is ready to go, and I just basically told him to go for it.

And how did he respond to your advice?

But...how can all the rumors be put to rest when they contradicted each other and some were negative concerning our coaches? Afraid Tennessee fans will not be cheering for this recruit or anyone else not wearing orange. I'm sure he will still be a local hero.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
