Influential 7v7 team based in Virginia Beach. May or may not have influenced some last minute decommitts (pure speculation) last minute

Well it sounds like they weren't on our side anyway. It just looks like people representing the old guard trying to sling mud at us. Is there really anything new here?

RE: 2016 Old Dominion Football Recruiting Den
The best players in the 757 are always going to be looking at UVA, VT, or other SEC/B10 schools, nothing has changed. The spot we have been focusing on and have to be successful at is the guys that are recruited by UVA/VT, but not at the caliber of the top guys being recruited at the school. Guys like Brickhouse who could certainly play at either school, but may not get a chance for 2-3 years, if at all. Those are the guys we should be spending the most time recruiting, imo.

I'm lost. "They never crown you KING from where you from.... it's always somewhere else where they show you your royalty." Does that make sense to anyone else? It sounds like a really far reach at something not profound.

So what they are attempting to convey is that people who stay home in their local area are never held in high regard? That's not very logical in 757s case because when have we ever had a school in the 757 that offered up as high a profile as ODU does now? I'm sure if someone cared they could come up with a huge list of student athletes that stayed in their hometown IF they happen to live in the area of a large school. Otherwise if you live in Gates County you have no option but to leave. shrug.

Clearly the tweeter was trying too hard to sound important. That's what I got from it.

I would think there's a chance the tweet is not a reference to college selection at all. It could be that it is referring to the fact that they are a high level travel team that plays tournaments outside of the 757 area. I may be being naive.

This might be in response to their athletes leaving Virginia altogether. Levonta did just get two SEC offers. ODU90 could be right as well. 7on7 season is quickly approaching.

I don't think we have a snowball's chance in hades of getting a commitment from him, but it does speak volumes on the growth of our program that he would even come for a visit. One day in the not-too-distant future, we will start signing an occasional four-star.

I guess if nothing else a kind word from some of these kids to their buddies back home doesn't hurt. Never know when a slightly less talented team mate might hear good stuff about us and pick us. Guess it's all about the marketing of the program. Doesn't hurt our image at all to have 4* coming in for a visit.

We've got to start landing a few 4*s here and there to keep up with the Marshalls, La Techs and other conference mates. Cant land em if you don't try to recruit them.

We have an answer:

Quote:Smothers has family in Norfolk and his father lives across the street from the campus.

We have to get into the conversation before anyone is going to remember our name and call it on signing day. Nice to get the visit from a WR of that caliber regardless of where he commits.
