Here's an article from Bryan Curtis about Will Lyles.
Bryan writes for Texas Monthly, Grantland.com and has written for Slate and New York Times Sports Magazine.
Every year high school recruits receive an avalanche of dazzling offers from universities to play football. But in the big business of college athletics, the schools hold the cards—and far too often, the kids face the biggest decision of their lives all alone.

Interesting read. How many people can do a good Mack Brown impression?
Great to get Mack's actual thoughts on third party involvement in recruiting.
Bobby, I may have missed it, but what it the status of Lyles/Oregon? Is the NCAA investigating?
Bobby the Dean...good story
great story. lyles belongs behind bars.
Bobby, I'd like to say thank you for your roll in exposing Lyles. Integrity is the name of the game in all walks of life. Lyles has none, you sir, have plenty.
Investigation is ongoing.
Good read thanks for the link Bobby.

My take: Manning doesn't know who works for 247, Bobbys a guru with telepathic powers, theres a mack brown imposter out there.
Live away from Texas long enough and you realize just how good Texas Monthly is.
I wonder if the NCAA will read this?
Great job Bobby!
I'm gonna guess Luicci. He is a mouthpiece for ATM and would do anything the coaches ask to keep his position.

i especially enjoyed the part where Lyles tries to gain a little sympathy by pointing out "guys like Sandusky".
The delay in punishing Oregon for their obvious paying of a street agent for a player means they can continue to pull good recruits, like Dontre Wilson. Makes me angry.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
Uh I think you missed the point a bit.
