I hate bad news but

Postby muskieman » Wed Aug 22, 2018 10:28 am

Elias king tweet

Due to family reasons I am decommiting from Xavier. I would like to thank Coach Steele and the university for recruiting me. I will give NO interviews by phone or social media.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Sounds like family pressured him to stay at home.

It does seem that it is harder and harder to keep commits. Sign of the times.

this one seems weird. he was all about X and even after committing came with Ramsey to get him to come. I now worry that Ramsey stays.

My hope is that Johnson now commits to X but I believe he is Louisville's to lose.

We all must remember, Trevon Bluiett committed to UCLA, and then, de-committed and came to X. The reason: to be closer to home (Indianapolis)...so the matter cuts both ways.

I never said it didn't. Just making an observation.

But in fairness UGA had coaching change; cannot be shocked if ends up @ UGA again.

Only way to lock in a recruit these days is to hire his dad or his AAU coach as an assistant. I don't count on any of them until they're in school and the season starts.
