Tigerfan4120 and et al that called me an idiot,
quote]OP, don't be such a fricking idiot, plz. Harris has to go to camp and impress in order to get a commitable offer from Bama, too. Or is the issue that Bama's camp apparently costs $375 and LSU's is $400? I really hope you're not connected to Harris in any way.[/quote]
Please, Please tell me you are still reading this post.
"Recruiting has steadily picked up for four-star quarterback Brandon Harris (Bossier City, La./Parkway), and that trend continued Monday.
Harris received an offer from Alabama, the defending national champion -- more specifically, from UA coach Nick Saban himself.
“It’s a top-10 program,” Harris said. “They’re ranked No. 1 or No. 2 every year, and Coach Saban, his resume speaks for itself. I don’t think any of us question Coach Saban’s resume. He’s a great guy. I was just shell-shocked that I was even talking to him on the phone.” The Crimson Tide have been selective with the quarterback position in this class. And Monday’s offer came with an unusual stipulation: Unlike the other signal-callers who have been offered, Harris doesn’t have to come to camp and throw in front of the coaches.
“The key thing [Saban] told me was that I don’t have to go to a camp to show him that I can throw a ball,” he said. “He wants to get me up there, meet my dad, who’s a great role model. I want him to meet my grandma and everybody else who are big influences on me on a day-to-day basis.
“If I wanted to commit right now, I can. I think he’s got a different opinion on me.”
I am most positive that I said this from the start and it is why I defended Brandon's decision not to camp at LSU if he didn't want to. I'm not one to show anyone up because it's not how I tick but this should be a valuable lesson to think before you talk negatively about someone and attempt to discredit them.
