Do you fell that he's been promised a scholly down the road?

Bill, as you know scholarships can come in many different formats.:)It is doubtful that Padilla is paying full boat ($50,000+) for International students. After all he had full Division 1 ships.

For Nesbitt tweeting a decision date this board sure is quiet.
 
       
Hope we get him. I also find it very amusing that future ‘top X schools’ announcement tweets are now written the same way commitment announcements used to be.

Hopkins took a visit down to Lexington today.

Even though no interaction with the staff, certainly they can have a friendly open gym workout. Also, IU possibly on his way home. C/U is not that far out of the way too.

Whether it's from insiders or "insiders," I'll be happy to read the updates either way.

As of today, SLU.

Small possibility things could change between now and the announcement date.

The tides have already changed it just hasn’t broke camp and gotten to the “Gurus” yet...

Crystal balls USUALLY get more accurate as we approach the commitment date.

We will probably start to have a good idea in about a week or two.

+++++, staff, particularly OA, likes to mess with Piper/Werner and send them down the wrong rabbit hole.

TC are you hearing same thing as QC is hearing about Nesbitt? Thinking Illini??
 
       
+++++, staff, particularly OA, likes to mess with Piper/Werner and send them down the wrong rabbit hole.

The staff hasn’t gotten to Piper yet. You think just because Piper says that they are a “text” or a call away that they automatically answer DP every time he texts?

Piper has no clue what’s going on here, his hand is being forced because of the National Snow article. And Snow has no idea either just like he didn’t with Jones up until the last minute 💯

The staff is in a good position here and the Nesbitt’s are keeping things close to the chest, which is good. Things have not changed in a couple weeks, this announcement is only on the heels of one momentum shift... and that’s when the Nesbitt’s made Illinois their leader and decided THAT was the best option. Nothing since then has changed...

The National punditS here just don’t know it yet because everything has been so SLU heavy up to this point..

Sure hope your scoop is correct, QC. Nesbitt would set us up for an excellent class.

Interesting. Did you read that somewhere?? You don't typically play the "insider" card for yourself. I believe you have stated before that you just read, see, and hear a lot from the internet.

Knowing that OA likes to mess with, AKA feed false info, to those guys seems an awful lot like insider info.

Nesbitt will be a good test case for this theory. Piper has been SLU for quite awhile. For David Jones, Piper was solid Illinois up until the last 4 or5 hours of that recruitment.
QC's theory regarding Snow and Piper is a good one. Snow is flat out saying SLU in a recent article.
