I got a wry chuckle out of this.
“There are a lot of kids in the 2021 class who are already fed up with it,” Smart said Thursday on the Paul Finebaum Show. “Because when you think about it, Paul, the recruiting has ramped up because we’re not really spending any time with our players because they’re not on campus. You talk to a 2021 prospect right now, he’s averaging about 10 to 15 calls a day and he’s about fed up with it. So a lot of those kids are going to make their decisions maybe a little sooner than anticipated.”
Sure, I can see some recruits make a commitment to get the phone calling to stop, or at least slow, but I wonder if a few recruits simply walk away from coaches who are too intense chasing them.
