Sagan recruited trindon.

If remember the story right Miles almost pulled Trindons scholly when he got here.
Well, unfortunately you remember it all wrong.

Trindon was a high school senior in 2005- Miles first year. Saban didn't sign him or recruit him. And Miles didn't almost pull anything.

Well unfortunately you are wrong as well. Trindon played his senior year in the fall of 04. Jimbo wanted TH bad and attended several of our practices at northeast. Saban left in dec 04 and miles signed TH to a gray shirt in feb of 05.

Ok- so he was a high school senior in 2005? And Miles signed him?

Saban offered Trindon but couldn't sign him since he left a month before signing date. Miles signed Trindon along with most of the other athletes that Saban made offers to, which is what most incoming coaches do out of necessity. Think about it, Miles couldn't bring all his Oklahoma State recruits with him and he couldn't build a recruiting class from scratch a month before signing day either, so for the sake of continuity, he honred Saban's commitments.

Trindon committed to lsu on feburary 2, 2005. So he had to have committed to Miles, not Saban.

RP, Lafell, RJF, Holliday, RJ Jackson, all committed after miles was hired. You can thank saban for fricking us that year with a total of 8 commitments from nick saban.

Besides these guys had to have developed in this program. So its a testament to recruiting and coaching these recruits. None of these guys are nfl ready from day 1 out of hs. not a single one of them.

Holliday signed with LSU on 2/02/05 but he verbally committed long before that when Saban was still the coach.

My father was a parent as well as my mother. I'm just glad they got together and did something to bring me into the family.
