I'll care about these kids when they sign the LOI at this point. I know circumstances were a little strange last season, but we lost a goddamn St. Louis kid to a rival SEC school on national signing day, I decided I was done caring about the verbal assurances of 18 year old kids.
(Holy hell, though; kid's an incredible specimen. C'mon Gary! Make him a CB!)
It beats not getting them. Besides, last year was a different animal. We recruited kids who wanted to be in the Big XII and play in Texas. Its only natural that we lost a bunch of them with the move.
Now, kids are signing on knowing we're in the SEC. There will be defections, but I don't think there will be nearly as many as last year.
