Is there a movie on this flight?

He's taken visits to Ohio St. and Mizzouri. Now he's ready to move up his timetable. Can't see how that's good for Illinois....even if the Illini still get a visit. Seems the kid knows and has seen what he wants. Hope we get the chance to change his mind.
Vastly better than pulling the plug on his recruitment and committing. It appears we'll be given the opportunity to make our case. And that is most definitely a very good thing.

Alot of "insider" info can (shouldn't be) relayed off of a premium 24/7 site....some the info posted here or insinuated here today is on there...jsut saying?
But we do have a few posters that have a bonafide link to coaches (or something). These are the ones that I pay attention to. These types, as a rule, do not out their source, and they tend to be pretty guarded by principle. But they will let things drop that don't make their way to premium sites. Like many have mentioned, Stu is part of that crowd. Luckylefty is another.
Nothing to see here, Stu posted before the date stamp from Brian Snow...the real question is where did Brian get his info?

Just curious to know why if he knows already what he wants, why he would waste time with a visit and/or an in-home with someone he has no interest in. If a person truly has decided and wants to end the recruiting process, that would seem counterproductive to their goal. Now, if he takes no more visits, than I would be inclined to agree with you, but if he takes another visit, then that means he is not sure. He could be 99% sure, but he isn't 100% sure or I believe he wouldn't bother with another visit.

It all depends. If the rumor is true that he plans to basically cancel two visits and move one up, it means he has seen two contenders and feels at least two of the remaining schools just can't measure up and wants to see the third remaining school sooner rather than later and then get the process over with. That is not necessarily bad for school #3. It means he still wants to give them a shot, but it does also imply they have to play catch-up a little bit. Hopefully this is all true and we are school #3.

As stated above, it would take two other schools out of the running as well. If I were him, I wouldn't want to drag this out over his senior season. Deciding in early fall seems like the smart play.

My guess would be that BU would push for an in home, and wouldn't view it as a waste of his time. One last opportunity to state your case and possibly change his mind or keep things open. Any chance to sit down at home is a good one.
 
He is a teenager, we were all counter productive in general at that age...:sneaky:
Except, it has pointed out ad nauseam that the kids don't make the decision on their own; that their parents, their families, their AAU coaches, their handlers, someone else is involved which would prevent this.
