[quote=“cltniners, post:20, topic:28638”]clt doesn’t like his quote about communication. How where we not communicating?[/quote] How where we not communicating? Clt is so ironic.

I saw that he committed to Louisville yesterday. I guess things didn’t work out with the SC verbal.


#23

Without bothering to look? Recruited over.

We’ll get to see him in 2016.

Stories like this piss me off, but make me feel good for the kid’s sake. DAMN! I hate mixed feelings. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/high-school/article225554310.html?fbclid=IwAR02vRKt5tkRasTDfezuKp4PUNoCRCEMCgNBBhILsr7mo54pQ7QI-jAaCRo

What in that story pisses you off? Surely not being able to compete with Louisville (especially years ago).


#26

Really? I think you may have an idea.

“Alexander initially committed to Charlotte’s 49ers but switched to South Carolina.”


#27

Yeah I could understand if he chose Gardner Webb over us but not South Carolina. Maybe we’ll get the next one.


#28

Oh a real fan hunh? Why are you here?


#29

I try to be a realist in my fandom approach to the niners. Today and prior, If a kid chooses South Carolina in football over us it makes sense to me. Hopefully that will change one day. Once in a while we’ll score a kid that doesn’t want to be 5 min from the home cooking.

Anyways. You feel the way you want. All good.

We just signed a 3️⃣*️⃣ from Rocky River. Perhaps he too will shine.


#31

My problem with Jaire was he only committed to leverage it for a P5 offer. He jumped at the first one he got and then still didn’t go there.


#32

That’s the way football goes, hopefully now we’re in a better position with Healy & staff to better leverage the nuances of FB recruiting.


#33

Certainly and Jaire’s decisions definitely work out for him. I too am hoping now that have someone with a bit more enthusiasm, we can keep guys like this rather than look back and wonder what might have been.


#34

Not saying he would’ve signed with us then but the new early signing period may help land guys like this.


#35

Early signing day is really for recruits that are certain of where they want to commit. Late signing day is for players trying to get the best offer. I think young Jaire falls clearly in the latter category.
