He was kicked off Texas A&M’s team amid very serious allegations. I just don’t see Tulane would have really let him enroll.
I'm with you on this.


Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

My question was is he here for the spring, or not until summer?

Do you see some Poetic symbolism in the first names of our commits who made the "Nifty Fifty?"

Highly rated Punter, Kicker, and D-linemen. I don't how successful we'll be this year but I really like the way 2019 and beyond are lining up!

Big visit over the weekend:
One of the top available defensive linemen in the South has set a pair of visits, a source tells 247Sports.

Montgomery (Ala.) Lanier senior Alfred Thomas, the No. 21 overall prospect in the Yellowhammer State per 247Sports, will head to Tulane for his next official visit. The trip to New Orleans will begin this weekend for the 6-foot-1, 270-pound talent.

The three-star, who was a first-team All-State selection in Alabama's second-highest classification in 2017, will also make a trip to UCF just before national signing day. The final official visit will take place beginning February 2, just five days before pen meets paper and prospects can make their intentions official.
His stock has been falling fast but he at one point had offers from Georgia, GT, Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Mizzou, UNC, Ole Miss, Tennessee.

There's another commit for you. Keitha Jones, a 3 star WR/S from Port Arthur Memorial. He committed to SMU in August, but took his official visit this weekend to SMU, then decommits 3 days later? Curious. Not a great list of offers other than SMU. ULL, SELA, New Mexico,

Enjoyed another commitment but still haven’t seen a Roll Wave out of Port Arthur? There were a few decommitments from SMU this weekend. Where offers pulled?

I would imagine some offers were pulled and some players felt more comfortable with staffs that had been recruiting them long before the new staff at SMU was put together.

Currently, according to 247sports. Considering our best year ever was a 0.8003 rating, I think we're doing ok.

Natl Rank: 72 AAC Rank: 5 Avg Rating: 0.8233

No new QB. :oops:
Despite the departure of quarterbacks Johnathan Brantley and Khalil McClain after the season and Lindsey Scott's decision to sign with Missouri, do not look for Tulane to add a quarterback on Wednesday.
