Simple question. Who would he be doing this for, you or himself? There is a lot to recruiting and, making a decision in a rush is not a good way to do things. All schools tell you what a great school they are and how badly they need you. I actually leaned towards Stanford before I picked Illinois. It was a really close decision but, Illinois won out simply because I didn't like Stanford's dingy red tops when I went to visit. They actually changed the color the next year, lol. Still red but, not the dingy red. I am hopeful that he picks the school that is the best fit for his desires. I would love for U of I to get the kids that they are going after but, at that age, they do not need to be rushed into a decision.
Well put. As much as I'd love to have Cooper commit (yesterday!), I'd rather have him be dead certain about his decision. Especially, after his Texas dalliance. Other schools are going to woo him until the ink is dry. This pretty much holds for all prospects. They're 18 YOs, impressionable & receiving heavy pitches, left and right.
