Figured since Scott is gone and we never did have a thread on Tyrrell Pigrome, we should have one.

These days until it's up on Twitter, nothing is official. ESPN also has several other guys still committed to Tulane, but decommitted long ago.

It's either a bizarre mistake or a very interesting development.

James Smith is writing that he suspects Pigrome to have trouble qualifying academically wherever he goes. If that's true he's not even an option for this year (maybe never). It looks like it's going to be Bradwell, Brantley or Cuillette unless there is a very late surprise.

Jimmy "Tiger" says Pigrome is a questionable qualifier. The staff will have to make due with Bradswell and Brantley. Time for Fritz to work on his 2017 quarterback.

Jimmy has no clue what he's talking about regarding Tulane or any of the players we are recruiting. He made repeated references in the chat to players coming to Tulane who have committed to other schools. The staff wouldn't be expending this much time and energy on a guy who they think won't qualify. Neither would Maryland or VT. You see kids like Travez Moore from Bastrop who isn't going to qualify....he gets almost no recruiting attention. Take what Jimmy says about Tulane with a grain of salt.

Do we know for sure how much effort has been put in? He was here on Jan 15th for his OV but do we know anything else for sure?

Maryland and Va. Tech are at VERY different levels of immediate need than Tulane. I am not claiming to know anything personally about Pigrome's academic status and I understand that Jimmy Smith is a big LSU guy, but if he can't qualify, he is not doing anybody any good this year. If Jimmy Smith is willing to throw that out there, there must be something to it and the effort to sign quality players at this stage of the game might be better spent elsewhere.

Maryland is ranked by USN&WR at #57. Maryland is also an AAU member. If they think they can get him qualified, then I'm sure we feel the same exact way. I don't buy what Mr. Smith is selling.

As TU23 pointed out Smith incorrectly, in his blog today, referred to several players as Tulane commits or prospects who have committed elsewhere or are no longer being pursued by Tulane.

Mr Smith continues to do his best to undermine Tulane with half truths and outright lies.

Things seem to be pretty silent the last few days in regards to Pigrome. Can't stay any quieter for much longer though.

Not to put a damper on anyone's #Fritzmas eve, but I had this nagging thought. What if Pigrome doesn't make his decision tomorrow? Imagine the anticipation if it carries on a few more days or weeks. Has he actually said he's going to sign tomorrow? Just wondering.

Looks like we won't find out until this afternoon.

1) All Eyes on Pig
Mr. Football runner-up Ty Pigrome is weighing his options. Hope he got some sleep this week. Tulane. Virginia Tech. Maryland. And don't forget any last-minute, 11th-hour recruiting pitches.

The Birmingham area's top offensive talent in 2015 will likely take his recruiting decision to Wednesday afternoon's press conference at the school (1:45 pm). His dual-threat talents made him nearly unbeatable during two seasons as a Clay-Chalkville's starters. Starting next fall, dozens of college football programs believe he can do the same.

I think so as well. Just the fact we were among their final choices is a change from the past. Add winning and some plans for new facilities to the mix. Also, the more I look at highlights, I like this kid Johnathan Brantley out of Houston. Tall kid, somewhat lanky, but looks good on tape.

That's why Chase Fourcade decided to stay with N State instead of signing with Maryland.

I'm thinking the Maryland offer to Fourcade was a conditional one.

I am not worried about the QB position, I think the QB's from Florida or Houston will manage the game very well.... this opens a schollie for a JC or Grad transfer needed on the Line....

Looks like LSU may lose that #1 recruiting class title after all. They had one guy flip to Clemson today, and Erick Fowler chose Texas over LSU.

I agree. How much difference is there between a 2 star and a 3 star dual threat QB? At that level, they are all better runners than passers. Maybe Pigrome had better coaching in high school and gave him better opportunities. We have two signed with Cuillette already on board. If we have a good coaching staff, it won't matter at all.
