RE: 2020 Transfer
I don't understand why we take transfers from smaller schools. If they were good, they'd already be at ODU. You never get stronger, you never get faster, you never get more experienced; once you pick your college, that's your level forever and ever amen. Them's the rules.

I don't understand why anyone is worked up about a walk-on?

Well, it is one dude and he's complained about recruiting for the last 10 or so years and apparently that wont stop despite the new coaching staff and improved recruiting rankings.

I don't know if I am reading it correctly, but he was the #15 rated LB in VA coming out of HS.

Could have been under recruited because of competition or something. I know Dematha has a great basketball history, but I have no idea how good Dematha football is.

I didn't see the tweet can you share?

Looks like that tweet was deleted or "unavailable" now. Land had retweeted it but the link now says unavailable. Maybe he changed his mind.

He is now following the CB Coaches at Indiana and Western Michigan on twitter in addition to ODU coaches.

Looks like Central Florida is all over Tayvion Land.

Notre Dame is after Land. I predict we will not get either Liberty transfer. They will go to P5.

Fire that effin' RR. Another can't-recruit loser. While we're at it, shut down the program, everything. Sick of it, SOS every year. Can't even beat out a Catholic school out in the boonies.

There is no guarantee that he is not getting some sort of financial assistance. Also...this means less reps for scholarship players, will he get free meals, equipment, etc...Times I guess are not tough enough and the AD is flush with money. I understand your point but ODU should be aspiring to bring in higher level recruits even walk ons.

We were one of the most successful startups in history.

Im trying to understand what you are getting at. All walkon....which evry team has 20 or so walkons but they dont take reps from scholarship players unless they earn them...but you ar saying our walkons should be better? Like who are expecting a G5 to have as walkons?

Detroit Lions WR and 6th round pick Travis Fulgham was a walk on.

Walk-ons have played key roles at ODU, especially at LB:

The chances that the NCAA makes them sit, is slim to none. They will be highly sought after
