Just by his twitter thread, I think this kid has been begging for an IL offer. He has asked for ways to get in touch with Lovie and Hardy but didn't see any response. He also asked for them to 'follow' him.
He said he was coming on an unofficial visit this weekend but didn't see anything about
He tweeted that he had a conversation with CPaterson but Corey didn't retweet it, which he usually does.
My thoughts is he is not on IL radar. Maybe gave him that phone call incase he blows up his senior year....

Littyville is where all the cool kids hang out and Fred is the kid trying to get invited to the party.

I have to think the coaches have at least reached out to him and shown interest otherwise How could we make his final 5

Because it is where he wants to go. A kid can put any school in his top whatever, doesn't mean that it is a realistic option.

And I'm cool with all of this. She's being a parent and championing all of her son's attention and fans.

Oh so am I. I posted about a week ago that I think we get Shammond, partly because his mom. Every time I see something, I just get more anxious. Kind of like Charles Billingsley

Too late. The narrative has rampaged out of control and killed the program.

I love the fact that the crack graphic design team came up with using 1960's uniforms. I hope they are getting paid what they're worth. I wonder who designed them back then. They should get royalties.

I thought Fabian was going to commit 2 weeks ago! But on Jeremey Werner show, he makes it sound like we are the front runners for all three. Just waiting for it to happen

Has anyone on here look at the Twitter Marcus Washington’s dad. I got a feeling he is the reason we weren’t in the top 10

Winning attracts kids to your program not cheesy edits and cornball tactics
The team last year wasn't projected to win a whole lot of games in the first place. I don't get all the negativity. Jahleel's dad tweeted similar stuff, but it seems like it was more about the staff not being in contact with him.

Yeah and to me his goes a little further than me.billingsley but I think u gotta look at the coaches not the record. Did u know from 2012 -2015 were the only years we didn’t get at least one person drafted. Lovie literally had to dig the program up from its grave

Isn't their some sort of rift between the dad and Coach Patterson? Or at least from the dad's point of view? Or am I confusing him with another player?

They made it sound like Marcus's family had issues with Corey as well. If his dad doesn't think Marcus is getting enough attention at Trinity, he is probably going to try and push him to a current powerhouse. Let us hope that we nab all the other Trinity kids. Then Marcus will have another good reason to come.
