The SEC of signatures....
Our first pledge of the 2015 class is an OT that can't wait to get to Austin and wear burnt orange. I wish he was in the 14 class.
On a serious note, I wouldn't count on them at all. Their definitely just taking a slap at Mack for his no visit policy. Mack cannot trust that these two kids are gonna be signing with UT come Feb. move on and find replacements now
It's pretty damn obvious the whole just going to see my dad story was a bunch of horse squeeze. I can see it now, recruit commits to school to reunite with daddy, it's full of drama so Knox will love it.
Look at it this way...unless he has multiple dads, then there should be no more "Dad" visits..............
@JeffHowe247: Per @247Blake the #Longhorns offered Manvel 2014 OT Koda Martin today. #Hookem #UT
Looks like Mack is calling the bluff
how so? Knox is a guard at the next level.
As it should be. Kid looks around, TX will too.
Too many pot shots being taken at these kids. I understand they've 'committed' but they're 16/17. They'll sway whichever way the wind blows. Earn your paycheck MB, and outsell Urban, Saban ... and I can't believe I'm writing this but Briles too. There's way too much uncertainty on the future of this program due to mediocrity over three years. Win more games, or lose the same amount and pass the baton to the next leader. Either way the program needs some long term clarity after 2013. With that, some of these kids might not look around so much.
Not what he is listed as in the process, has him OT.....
I guarantee they're not coming to Texas. Been there done that.....
You know what they say about fool me once............
Has Gresham's offer been pulled?
Daniel Gresham @DanielGresham33 Protected account 9m
Man this was not supposed to happen
Probably not, but you never know.
These kids are running serious game
Yup, they're good at it.
Wouldn't this fall under not friends of the program?
My guess is that he was promised that there would be nothing posted?
Should be, Mack gets crapped on all the time. It's about time to show he is serious, I know they are kids. But I am sure he tells them to make sure they are ready to "commit" before they do. If they are gonna play games like this and A'Shawn, then pull the offer and give it to a more deserving and committed kid.
I am actually not too bothered. Once it was determined that Knox is a guard then I was not too worried about losing them. Guards blow up late in the recruiting process. Think Rami Hammad. They can both be replaced easily.
The situation with these two seems different. There is an air of deception with these guys that wasn't there in A'Shawn's case. A'Shawn didn't begin to waiver until the fall if I remember correctly and he didn't try to hide what he was doing. Knox has never stopped looking around and Gresham seems to express interest in every school that has offered him since he committed.
I think Macks stance is the type of attitude that got texas behind the power curve in the first place. From the outside looking in, it apprears to still be arrogant. Money wise, texas is still one of the joneses. On the field, not so much. Statements like Mack made still sound like he did at media days in '10.
IMO, if you feel that way fine, but dont say it to the media. Now, youre faced with a situation that you have to back up what you put out, and this situation is textbook defiance against what Mack said.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
