I don't think Willis is/was playing the game. He made a visit to LSU and not for a free game like he had many opportunities to do. He always had genuine interest in LSU and came to check it out and was actually very impressed along with his family. The distance is just too much to overcome in his case. That's the case with a ton of kids every year. Goodman is more the one that has played the game and I don't think he's really played the game because he hasn't taken any of the OOS visits he could've taken. He's always been a kid that was gonna end up in Los Angeles whether it be USC(where he wants) or UCLA. He just played games with his words.
Package deals almost never happen. Don't believe what one recruit says. Just like LC's best friend last year said he's going to LSU and he went to Bama...
Priest can be just telling him what he wants to hear. That being said, we were never going to land PW. West coast kids rarely find this location overly attractive. Different culture. Hayden is like the first guy we've got out in the West in a long time.
