    Disagree. I want him under the radar and for other teams to laugh at how bad Day is recruiting

    Some highlights:

    Gee Jr. is currently 6-foot-3, 213 pounds, runs a 4.60 forty, and does 18 bench reps at 225 pounds.

    Gee Sr. says that Brian Hartline is one of the best WR coaches in the country; Hartline has the respect of other WR coaches.

    Gee Sr. didn't want Gee Jr. to go to Ohio State - he didn't think Gee Jr. could compete at a powerhouse program like Ohio State.

    After committing to Ohio State, Gee Jr.'s work ethic "went through the roof". By April of 2019, Gee Sr. felt that Gee Jr. was finally ready to compete at a big time program like Ohio State.

    Gee Jr. has a younger brother - Zion - who also plays wide receiver at Eastside Catholic (class of 2021). ED: Zion doesn't appear to be a Division I prospect at this point.

    It was a good listen and refreshing to hear a level headed father not living vicariously through their son to the point that it becomes an obstacle for the recruit themselves.

    Cool piece in the Athletic about his recruitment. An excerpt:

    On of my buddies here in Seattle is pretty plugged into the UW program; when I told him that Scott was coming to tOSU, he blew it off, saying the Husky coaches didn't want him and that supposedly a big hurdle in the recruitment was the old man, Scott Sr. who was seen by the Husky staff as a LaVar Ball type of father, thus the kid was not worth the hassle?

    Of course that struck me as total 'sour grapes' nonsense, but I'm sure there's more to come.

    all comes down to that doesn't it, perception? If a staff is overly indexed to it, I could see any highly involved parent getting the LaVar Ball label.

    Maybe he is and maybe he isn't, I personally side with the involved parent until they show they are taking it too far or have their hand out.

    These coaches have significant pressure and significant financial incentive to win games and that will make the majority of them tell your son whatever they think he needs to hear in order to get him to sign.

    Grown men, with decades of experience between them vs the wide eyed teenager, maybe his HS coach and maybe 2 parents who likely have zero experience at the recruiting game. Like I said, I will always give the benefit of the doubt to a parent until they show that to be a mistake.
