Bad news for Courtney Gardner. Our "recruiting experts" don't know dick.
According to one of them, he was "let go Friday". FSU backed off him as well.
The 'Experts" are saying DGB to Mizzou now too.
It would be great if we got this kid but if he decides to go to his home state school I can't blame him too much and am not going to lose any sleep over it. One position I will never worry about with Petrino as coach is WR. Now if he he was a 5 star 300lb DT who runs a 4.8 then I might weep a little.
who are these "experts" you speak of?
UPDATE: Texas continues to linger in its attempts to land the nation's top wide receiver, Dorial Green-Beckham (Sprinfield, Missouri/Hillcrest). But, the team's recent addition of another wide receiver, Daje Johnson, indicates where Texas believes their standing is with DGB.Instead, a top two has emerged for Dorial Green Beckham. Arkansas and Missouri appear to have a 50/50 shot to land the 6-6 220-pound target."In some ways, Arkansas seems like the perfect fit for Green-Beckham," Stephen Spiewak of Maxpreps.com wrote. "He would be close to home and get to play right away for a team that can compete for a national championship next season.Spiewak considers Missouri the favorite to acquire DGB."While Arkansas will be tempting, Missouri could win out by executing one of the biggest recruiting coups ever," he wrote. "With family all around the state, Columbia makes sense as a centrally located destination for Green-Beckham, even if Fayetteville is closer to Springfield. Not to mention, his last official visit was to Missouri, meaning Gary Pinkel and staff got the often critical last word."
Alabama has 12 of the ESPNu top 150 commited. The rest of the West has 9. I started a thread about recruiting after the Alabama game and was lambasted. I stand by what I wrote. Bobby Petrino is a GREAT coach but I've yet to see him assemble a staff that looks to be great recruiters. I understand that he doesn't like recruiting, but he needs to hire someone that does. Yeah, we have been in the mix for all this elite talent but our staff really struggles at closing. We will whiff on DGB, Santos, Peters, Diamond, Goodman, and Gardner. There is no way to positively spin that. I hope I am wrong.
Please try not to be that guy. It makes the rest of us Razorback fans look bad.
That's what I don't get. Why? I am not trying to be "that guy". I am just suggesting that as awesome as BMFP is, he might could do well to get some recruiters on this staff. We obviously want DGB, Neal, Diamond, Peters, Orijke, Santos, and Garnder. Starkville, we even get them to campus. We had an incredible recruiting extravaganza lat week filled with pep rallies, 19,050 fans at BWA and TulsaPerv stalking recruits at The Catfish Hole and nary a one commitment has come from it. Surely I am not the only one who sees this.
There are probably over 50 schools that want each one of those guys, only one school is going to get him. In your way of thinking the other 49 schools are failures.When you go for higher caliber players you run into more competition and are going to have fewer successes.
I suppose that is true. I also suppose that we all want to win a national championship. I don't think we have a staff that recruits well enough to do that. Yeah, we lost two games this past year but we were rather outclassed in my opinion, NAMBLA has an undeserved reputation. It wasn't anything we did on the field, it was 3 years of signing day catching up to us. Has our recruiting improved since the new regime? Clearly. Is our recruiting good enough for a national championship? Hardly.
You're not the only one who sees this...you're just one of the only ones stupid enough to care what a bunch of nerds rate some high school kids.
I don't care if DGB is a 2 or a 5 star. We rolled out the red carpet for him and it is board sentiment that this would be the most logical place for him. Doesn't appear that he will be coming. Yeah, I am disappointed.
I understand that he doesn't like recruiting
Apparently Texas, Oklahoma, and Alabama aren't getting him either and I can promise they rolled out the red carpet for him as well. Do those programs suck?
You got a source on this, because it's pretty much the foundation of your argument and I think you're full of shit on it.Back up this assertion or pick something else to blather on about.
