That's 100% the reason I always say( no matter what a kids directly telling the coaches or even what they tell me,)recruiting is fluid. For the kids who flat out arent interested in the games and have no interest in the money any school can throw at them then I can tell u this is what hes gonna do. But as anyone who knows this game can point out when you get down the stretch, late 4th quarter these powerhouse schools start telling the kids they really want life changing offers. It's real easy for someone who's never experienced recruiting for elite kids at the p5 level kids a troll or hes just playing games. Yall ain't walked those shoes. A kid can 100% want to come here or anywhere else in his heart. But when that kid comes from poverty and his mother,father,brothers,sisters,cousins,friends etc all start being DIRECTLY effected by this one kids recruitment. When nick Saban's starts showing up at your job. When strangers show up at your house with car keys,with book bags full of money,drivers who take you to some house and just give you keys and drive away... it's stupid the **** that goes on in recruiting. Yall really need to stop judging kids for this process. It's by far the most difficult decision I ever made up to that point in my life and that's with everyone telling me flat out you're going to um. I'm guilty of it from time to time myself just out of passion and knowing the back story. All that being said if we did our job these last few seasons and offered the kids we were supposed to and did the most basic of shyt on the field I can speak on atleast 5 5 stars that currently would be on this team. Not their fault they didnt get that opportunity.I am convinced 80% of the recruiting experts are skeezy bozos gassing up their readers for clicks and they don't know sh!t.
But even when I hear it directly from a recruit's mouth, I can't completely trust most of what these kids say about where they are going. In most cases, it's not that they're trolling or lying, it's just that they don't really know what they want. And if a kid doesn't honestly know where/what he wants, then it is very hard for him to be honest with others about that (no matter his intentions).
