Ala. can qualify Lacy, but not McNeil.
What does that tell us about McNeil?

Laugh all you want. It's like offering someone a job then not accepting them to work for you.

Completely different. One was qualifying out of high school and had to take summer school to make it. From what I remember, Lacy had a terrible sophomore year in the classroom and spent the last two years making up for it.

McNeil took a class that won't transfer. He didn't fail. This is a round hole, square peg situation.

Recruiting is not a job search. They are not employees. That is a bad comparison.

All schools do it this way. All scholarship offers have conditional language in them so the coaches can back out. Nothing is final until the player signs on the dotted line and registers for classes.

Sure, but if his classes won't transfer that won't happen.

I told y'all a few days ago that he was flipping lol, got flamed since I'm a "bammer" don't care, was just trying to give you guys a heads up, maybe you should listen next time

ETA: Good pickup though he's a really athletic TE who will do well in LSU's system

This is not a case of miscommunication like the Adam Taylor one. McNeil told the staff he was committing and the staff kind of gave a wink with the caveat that his grades must get in order. Same as Gardner. Not committed but if the grades are there then they are. Basically a commit but not officially.

Now I can understand people questioning which situations are different from others when it comes to grades. We currently have kids committed that are grade risks and yet they are officially commits. Why is the situation different and what is the line of thinking? I can come up with many different reasons this could be the case but none are any different than guys like Cutrer, Lawson or Robinson. Imo a grade risk is a grade risk. If the plan is to take them if the grades are there then why not just accept the commitements of Gardner and McNeil? If they don't qualify then what does it matter? If they do then it's just the plan working out. Ikm sure the staff has their reason and I'm not questioning their thinking or strategy. I'm just looking for ideas from others to try and figure out how the situations are different.

And at the time you were saying that, the discussion from LSU's side was that he wouldn't qualify anywhere.
