Not sure where you saw 4-stars, but I'm super excited to land a 6-7 stud DE with a motor. This is a huge area of need, so really excited to see the need addressed in an equally huge way.

Plenty of potential but no 4 star, that's for sure

Weird there can be that big of a discrepancy between ESPN (4*) and 247 (0*). Is it that 247 is working in limited capacity?
Yikes. No TJ and especially Reggie is devastating.

Need a recruitnik to weigh in on why he's not even rated on 247 site, but having just two offers from P5 programs suggests he's not as strong a prospect as others who carry 4 star ratings on that site. Regardless of any ratings debate, he looks like a guy who could have an impact for a program like SMU's and obviously our coaches believe that to be the case. I will trust in Coach Joyner's judgment.

Stars mean little IMO. But turning down offers from Arizona state, Colorado aaaaaand Cougar High means quite a bit.

Welcome to the Hilltop.


I recall Stallion writing more than a decade ago that one should focus on the offers, not the stars. Didn't always agree with him, but he was spot-on with that advice. (It's still nice to have a 4 star commitment.)

And Max, speaking of Stallion, whatever happened to him? Don’t recall seeing his posts in ages.

Yes sir - he could be a lighting rod, but offered valuable insights into the game. He surely Ioves SMU, but wasn’t politically correct enough for some on this board.

It makes me think he is a very frustrated individual. He was around all the time when we were really down, and criticized everything wrong about the program and there was plenty wrong at the time. Now that we are good and can enjoy our modicum of success he is nowhere to be found. It's sad really. I do enjoy his insights in recruiting. I think the Chad Morris debacle really did him in as he is the one who really touted Chad Morris to SMU. Chad was successful but moved on and we found someone who was even better, which he did not predict. Some people would rather be right than happy and I think that fits the bill with him.

Nor can I recall when I last saw him post. As for why, I dare not speculate on the ways of the Stallion.
