The point is he a 3* Athlete and could have played defense. Bring him and and let him compete !

Do you put more stock in coaches opinions or a website?

I put more stock in the programs that offered him.

Delaware State, Ohio, Connecticut, Liberty and Howard. (As a OG)

He is a "3*" that nobody wanted. The list of schools recruiting him is probably far more telling than his * rating. It doesn't sound like they dropped the ball, it sounds like they backed off.

RE: What are our coaches doing?????
When i am in charge of recruiting, i will report on this recruit and give my in depth opinion of how well he can contribute to our program. So, until my promotion, the sun will rise tomorrow, and we will play fooball in September, and I can live with the loss. For i know another will graciously accept the skolly and work hard to prove himself in spite of a star rating that may or may not be an accurate indicator of his talent.

all hail the monarchs!

No matter what happened or how, it’s certainly negative press for the program in an in state area we need to recruit better and generate more positive awareness.

Unfortunately, we really can’t control what “the press” chooses to write. Let alone the Fauqier Times. Do you think they’d write anything other than a limited scope, myopic, first person account that blames the big, bad university? We’re probably not going to hear a rebuttal because it’s lose/lose. If you say the truth and say we don’t think highly of his defensive abilities or we don’t have a need at his position for his talent level, you’re denigrating the kid. If you don’t say anything, some folks assume you’re “guilt”. We’ll see how he turns out. What happened with the last kid that did something similar? How’d he turn out?

Edit: corrected spelling

Clearly all bastions of football greatness.

I really fail to see the need in getting worked up of recruiting. Until the kids are here and playing it is all just speculation as to how they are going to pan out. Prime example: Tommy Reamon. Also are we seriously worried about something on the Fauquier Times website (Do they have a print edition?)? If it was the WaPo or even the RTD sure but the Fauquier Times?

We must be in trouble with all the kids that read the Fauquir times.

No, but parents and coaches likely do. And if athletics is supposed to a big way of bringing positive awareness about ODU to students and athletes in areas of the state west of 95 (where we are basically an afterthought) this doesn't help. Im not saying its the end of the world, just that it doesn't help and is contrary to the positive benefits we hoped football would bring.

You cannot control what the media chooses or doesn't choose to run or air. If a recruit or his parents want to know what happened from ODU's side, I'm sure they'll get an answer.

We have a lot of positive articles that you arent going gaga over the PR, so why stress over an article that had only 13 reactions on Facebook?

The only place this will hurt us at is Liberty-Bealeton. And that too will pass.
