I would like to know examples of "showing them all the love".and choosing another school. My statements are from actual recruits experiences and not the pretend social media hype.I am personally tired of all the gnashing of the teeth about in-state recruiting. We have made kids priorities, "showed them all the love", and they still took off to Michigan, Georgia, Alabama and Notre Damn. It isn't going to change until the program improves. A 3 star Illinois kid is not the same level as a 3 star southern kid.
Whether anyone believes Collier is going to bounce or not, he is currently committed to IL. The QB room is sitting real nice. You got room for 1. Who are you taking, 6'3" 210 from a power house in Texas or 6ft 180 from a power house in Missouri. Come on guys
Most (don't come at me with examples like IW, I said most and you know it) kids do not care about loyalty. Big stars see big lights. Big lights come with winning.
Team Texas 3 Stars vs Team Illinois 3 Stars - The question is not who wins, it is how many points does Team Texas win by
Your comments about Texas is obviously the way the staff feel as well. That being said, why blame in state players and coaches when it's clear they are not wanted? I am having difficulty understanding the logic. Kids everywhere else is better but, we want you to come and be put on the back burner whenever we can land a "better kid". I just don't get it.
