For a guy that had his parents very heavily involved in his recruitment, it's really insane he'd make such a short sighted decision. SMH
Troy has a high octane offense and 11 wins this past season more than any of those other schools on the list. He’ll probably mostly block at those other schools vs Troy.
In their last 4 games they scored 42,62,32 and 50 points respectively. Just a guess as to why he may have choosen Troy. Didn’t hurt that they beat LSU either.
The nearsightedness of this decision is that the Troy coach, with continued success, will be gone as quickly as after this young man’s first season.
What won't change, is that it is close to home.
Actually, Troy is further from Mobile than is New Orleans.
According to Al.com (Same as NOLA.COM):
"The three-star prospect, ranked No. 34 on the 247 composite rankings for 2018 prospects in Alabama, also had offers from Alabama State, Alcorn
State, Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Army, Florida Atlantic and Chattanooga among others." http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2018 ... nd_an.html
Although AL.COM is not renowned for its journalistic exccellence, It seems that if he had an offer from Tulane it would probably have been mentioned considering that quality of the other programs mentioned.
On another Mobile related note, Tanner Lee just replaced an injured QB in the Senior Bowl. Who thinks we should start another TL topic?
