Recruiting Nationally Discussion

I'm sorry but recruiting all of these Louisiana guys (sans Tillery) is a huge mistake. Just setting ourselves up for decommits. I honestly do not want any of these guys regardless of how talented they are unless they are signing day commits.

I disagree, I think the John Curtis kids have genuine interest and sound like a match. Sure Noil, Quinn, and others might not but an offer can't hurt.

They can always get out of their LOIs

Only half kidding

Not to make you more pissed but we just lost a signing day commit, but I get what you're saying. If we think there is pressure on CA kids to decommit I can only imagine how much pressure would be on kids from the heart of SEC country.

Yeah, EV jokes aside about not even being committed after signing... my point is grabbing early commits from Louisiana is just asking for them to get poached later... and they'll just be hogging a spot in the class until they flip, and we all know we don't oversign. Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi are all notorious for having flaky top tier prospects AND Notre Dame isn't local AND we're not going to play dirty like the other schools.

I simply do not want any of these kids signed up until after the football season.... and I don't really understand why we're trying to make inroads into one of the most loyal deep south states in the first place. Just seems really misguided.

Lax's concerns are certainly legitimate and he has the right mindset here. Don't John Curtis kids tend to wait until later though, similar to Don Bosco?

As early offers roll in, John Curtis High is a key destination - High School - SI.com

Head coach J.T. Curtis, fully versed in the recruiting process, has had a front-row seat for the increase in early attention and is less than pleased.

"The trend has been over the last five to seven or eight or nine years or so with early offers and early recruiting," Curtis said. "To be honest, I'm not a fan of that. I'd much rather see guys evaluated through their senior year. But it is what it is so we deal with it the best we can and try to keep a good sense about what's going on."

Even with the increased attention and prospects making earlier commitments, Curtis encourages his players to take a reasoned approach.

"I encourage them to take their time, and if we do commit we are done," Curtis said. "We are finished with any kind of recruiting and I want them and their family to know that because the word "commitment" to me means we're finished, we're done, it's locked in place. The only way that changes is if something happens in terms of the coaching staff being let go. Other than that we're not changing."

Doesn't matter what they say. We've all heard that from kids before.
