    Adam should we be worry about the decommitments in the past week. 4 in less than a week.
    Im trying to be positive about the whole situation, but what the hell is going on?

    I agree Adam. Given the situations surrounding those guys there wasn’t much surprise, with the exception of Bell. Who knows, it could be addition by subtraction as it opens up some slots for some other guys.

    Were not most of the decom’s put on notice about grades….thats why they bailed? Just kind of looks bad when the whole stories not out there, like the headline “Adams drops Florida” on Rivals. Guess when guys commit so early, these things happen.

    The kids hold all the cards when they decommit. Whatever they tell the media happened is what gets reported. Coaches are not allowed to talk about recruits at all, much less discuss grades, poor behavior, etc. so they cannot give their side of the story. A school may tell a recruit to hit the road, but it will then be reported that they decommitted and left on their own.
