TFW you have too much time on your hands

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.

    Whatever happened to Zach Evans? Seems like coaches would be calling him first.

    Recruiting seems like such a creepy thing. Didn’t Urban once talk about calling kids while he was showering?

    At the end of the day, this is grown men calling high school kids at all hours of the day, and it’s just bizarre.

    I’m glad Kirby recognizes that as an issue. Not that it has ever been an issue for me, personally, but if got calls from people repeatedly it would turn me off. I do think there are kids who like the attention. The trick, I suppose, is figuring out which kid is which. All indications are that Kirby is pretty good at figuring that out.

    And just like that “Hold On Loosely” is now running through my head….

    I would thing that the opposite would be true. With no football in the spring and possibly this fall all of these heralded recruits will fall further and further into obscurity. They might be just like other high school kids and not celebrities. Who knows… maybe even some in the pay em crowd might pause and realize that there is great value and opportunity in the full ride. At least those who don’t have skin in the game.


  6. It’s like flirting and dating. It all depends on how interested you are on who’s calling. Hey babe, if I can’t get that free trip to your crib I don’t want to talk right now.

  7. If theres no HS football recruits may need to be sold on good training over immediate play time. The immediate play time guys are either going to lied to or their gonna get demolished in 2021.

    It would be hilarious if Mullen ran off Evans after trying to zoom him 5x a day.
