4 star WR transferring from OU, originally from Patterson LA. His list of offers out of high school is ridiculous: LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Penn State, USC.

Obviously we shouldn’t get too ahead of ourselves after Jett . . .

As long as he hasn’t been arrested multiple times and found guilty by his school for sexual assault, I think he’ll be fine.

Tulane admissions will find some way to screw this up just like they did for the stud baseball player Justin Campnell and quarterback Jett Duffey. I hope Dannen had a private meeting with Fitts and told him point blank that this b.s. cannot continue.

It's certainly a position of need. I welcome him if he comes but he's four years removed from that ranking and hasn't performed like a 4 star. He's had injury issues. Hopefully he's healthy and performs better than he ever has.

The athletic had an exit interview with him as he left OU. Classy interview, didn’t throw anyone under the bus. He thought he was putting in his dues as an underclassman, he caught 12 passes freshman year and 13 sophomore, got hurt and redshirted and then was just buried on the depth chart and didn’t really play this year leading to him grad transferring. He was on the Academic All conference Team one year so school isnt a problem.

He was arrested once for punching a dam wall. Found bot guilty in an actual court of law with ya know lawyers and judges not a title ix panel filled with um you guess.
If you are going to make an inflammatory post, at least get the facts right.

I am aware of the punching the wall, and those facts and have commented on them several times. That doesn’t change I believe he was arrested twice (including the sexual assault). Doesn’t mean he was found guilty by the police and the state. But where there is smoke there’s fire, and Tulane is allergic to this specific kind of smoke.

This has thread drifted into yet another discussion of Jett Duffey. Let's get back on topic and leave the Jett discussions to that thread. It's all been hashed and re-hashed anyway, and Jett is at Central Michigan.

Did we land Mykel Jones?

Just read an article from Rotoworld that he has signed with us. Went on line but don’t know how reliable Rotoworld , or what it is. Sounds like the guy who cleans your pipes

Coach Fritz tweeted (or someone on the staff did so for him.) I guess that means he's in! Fritz never did so with Duffey.

If I am not mistaken, Rotoworld is owned by NBC Sports and is headquartered here in Stamford, CT.

Definitely needed help at that position. The tweet went out because he is now in class. Not allowed to do that before.

Really?

What about the HS recruits? He tweets about them at least 6 months before most of them are eligible to attend a class at Tulane. Are there different rules for HS recruits versus grad transfers? Have the rules changed?

Really. This is how it's been handled with the transfers. He also has cut back on it with the HS recruits. So once again this doesn't prove your point that it was all a hoax that Duffey was told by the staff he was in after clearing him initially with admissions no matter how many times you post it in various threads which is what you will do for months on end. It should be noted too that one wasn't done for Henry. So not reliable at all.

While this is great news (assuming Jones can stay healthy), this staff has got to find a way to start getting some HS wide receivers to commit. It seems this one may have 2 years of eligibility left, but we can't win by continuing to bring in new receivers every year and then they are gone.

Great add for the 2020 season. Hopefully we can get the ball to him.
