    It's his decision so it'll be on his schedule, not ours.

    y0yoyoin That is a serious injury for Willis McGahee

    Your talking about a kid with the mindset of someone in high school....

    Could the visits have something to do with us going after Wilson hard? I remember it was news that Urban told EE he would be the only RB taken for the 2013 class.

    Wilson wouldnt be playing RB though. Hed be a deanthony thomas, type player who primarily plays in the slot and in the return game. And occasionally will take handoffs or screens. He'll pretty much be the same as jalin marshall. A hybrid

    I don't question whether it's ok for EZE to take the visit. All is fair in recruiting, especially for the recruit in my opinion. Even if he de-commits and goes to Mizzou, I would wish him nothing but the best of luck. I just think it's naive to suggest there isn't any cause for concern considering the timing. And I would hope the staff is preparing for all contingencies.

    I'd imagine the staff considers all possibilities for every recruit not named Spielman up to and including LOI day until that letter shows up on the fax machine. Mr. Elliott has shown himself to be a thoughtful and respectful kid for a high-schooler, and to me this visit to Mizzou fits more into that mold than anything else give his family history with the school.

    However, the cliff jumping seen here (not by you) and on other forums, not to mention twitter and other places needs to stop.

    He's a great kid. Can't wait to see him suit up in scarlet and gray.

    Ehhhh... anytime the home state is getting an official, it's worrying IMO. Might not be that big of an issue, and possibly nothing at all, but it's something I didn't expect.

    That said, I do like that you're confident here because you certainly know more than I do here.

    You need to keep in mind that recruitniks are anxiety junkies. They're not happy unless they're worried.

    So quit raining on their parade. :lol:

    Bottom line is that no kid is "solid" until he sends that letter in. I'm sure the staff isn't worried but are making sure they are on the right side of this when the chips fall. Everybody needs to breathe a little bit and trust in Urban!

    ShowMeBuck Insert clever tag line

    Have you seen Bama's depth chart at RB and their current RB commits for this class? Stud's like Zeke shouldn't be worried about things like this. Especially players like him with a unique skill set. He might have the softest hands of any RB on the depth chart next year and Urb will utilize him for that alone.
