#121

I heard Mike & Mike talking about UConn recruiting the other morning. I wonder if they offered Tronti this guys scholly that they pulled?

Wow. I heard the discussion the other day too. But didn’t think about connecting the dots.[/quote]

I don’t know anything about this kid’s football abilities, but our coaching staff should immediately begin looking at film on him. He needs a home, and we probably need players.

“It’s been very wild,” Tronti said Thursday afternoon. “Obviously I’m still solid with Charlotte right now, but I want to look at these schools. It’s been exciting.”

Tronti plans to leave for Bloomington, Indiana, for a visit this weekend and then visit either Arizona or UConn next weekend in his final visit before signing day on Feb. 1.

He said he will make a final decision by mid next week.

Tronti said he originally had planned on making Hawaii one of his final two visits, but with Indiana, a Big Ten school, and Arizona, a Pac-12 team, offering, he informed the Rainbow Warriors he wouldn’t be making the trip.

“It’s going to be really hard,” Tronti said. “But I know whatever decision I make I’m going to be really happy.”

Can we just have some confidence with getting this kid??? Rich-Rod’s son is currently committed to Arizona(3* Dual-Threat) and Indiana has 6 QB’s on their roster(3 Freshmen). I may be in the minority but I have confidence with this commitment sticking! Gotta believe!!!

I still have confidence that this kid will stick. He will have so much more playing time If he played at Charlotte. I have faith still!

There must be a reason they are still recruiting him, and they may be able to convince him its a good reason, even if it isn’t.

If they sign him that means he doesn’t go to another school that may potentially play them. Even if he is there for a year or two and transfers it’s a year or two of potentially not playing against him. Power conference teams can never have enough talent at the skill positions it’s up to the kid to determine what is the best situation for him.

Hopefully for us that is Charlotte but I’m not going to get upset with the kid. I just hope he picks the best situation for him and not his coaches.

Just another example of how sleezy football recruiting is.

No one has enough talent at the skill positions. What I hope he looks at is the path to a starting job. If he come here, he could redshirt for a year and be a freshman on a team that has a graduating senior qb. If he works hard, learns the system and is good, he could start here for three years.

It’s okay. He’ll be recruited over and then play at a really swell FCS team in 3 years.

A commit is a commit to me. Backing out of a commit makes you an asshole. But with the new “alternative facts” attitude, I shouldn’t be surprised and I’m not. If kids want to look at all their options, that’s OK. But they should do it BEFORE they “commit”, and keep their options open publicly. Not commit and back out. This shit pisses me off. I don’t give a damn if this kid, his parents or his damn HS coach sees this. They can all go fuck themselves. This prick is a little liar and I wish him nothing but the worst. I NEVER want to see him even mentioning us again. And if he decides to transfer later, he can go to hell before I as a fan will accept him here.

i would have liked to land this kid but if you told me we could only keep him or the defensive lineman from south carolina we just got, i would take the defensive lineman. looked to be a good player and he’s going to need to be because he will be getting put behind a bad offensive line every week.
