I just copied my post from the other thread giving my reasons why Cam will be incredibly difficult to sign at this point and it has absolutely nothing to do with success in the draft. LSU just had former W. Monroe standout KeKe Mingo go higher in the draft than any bama player and people are acting like Robinson hasn't noticed this.
There is a post on the 247 board laying out the roles of Bakari Guice and Cam's "uncles" Kenny and Bub in Cam Robinson's recruitment. Those guys couldn't care less about LSU when they're benefitting by taking guys like Cam on trips to bama. It may look like an innocent trip to camp, but from what I understand, there's more to it than that.
I'm not saying they wouldn't drive him to LSU if he wanted them to, but Saban has been offering hs coaches jobs as "player personnel" staff members in return for delivering their star players to bama. There are more than 25 hs coaches who have current or former players at bama that are on bama's staff. All the hs coach has to do is drive the players to bama as often as possible, encourage that player to see things the bama way, and there are incentives being offered for their roles in the situation.
It's a really shady business and other schools have attempted to put a stop to the new rule allowing these practices, but it has only been temporarily suspended, which isn't stopping Saban and the REC from providing incentives to hs coaches.
This new rule allowing unlimited staff members is the work of Emmert, who owes most of his notoriety and success to Saban, so he will always do whatever he can to give Saban an advantage.
At least we all know that Emmert is on borrowed time because his tenure as NCAA has been a disaster, but during that time, it's been quite clear to everyone that Saban is holding all of the cards.
This is a key part of the reason that bama can get mulligans in the bcs championship, dictate the schedules and basically own espn. Because people that realize what's going on understand that bama will remain on top as long as the present system is in place.
They will also continue to throw resources at our very best players because we are a constant threat. This is why mods are predicting someone like Fournette to bama even though there has been absolutely no indication of that.
Les and co. will have to be fantastic at what they do and maybe a little bit lucky to overcome all of this bull shite that is piling up right under their noses.
