Four-star running back target Harold Joiner from Birmingham, AL (Mountain Brook) has eliminated LSU from his recruitment, according to Sam Spiegelman with SEC Country:
quote:

Joiner, who was planning to commit to the Tigers on Saturday, Jan. 6 at the U.S. Army All-American Game, has eliminated LSU from contention.

“It was going to be LSU. I was [supposed to commit], but they stopped talking to me and I don’t know why,” Joiner told SEC Country at U.S. Army Game practice on Monday. “I was shocked, kind of heartbroken. I was ready to go to that school, but I guess they didn’t want me.”

“They loved me. They were in my house talking about family, staying overtime and then they didn’t answer,” Joiner recalled of the December in-home visits. “They were supposed to call me on the early signing period about what they wanted to do, but they didn’t call. I tried to contact coach Tommie Robinson, but no one answered.”
LSU currently has two running backs signed for the class of 2018 in 4-star prospect Chris Curry and three-star prospect Tae Provens.

@earl, good one, you are so witty. Oh wait, you are fn dumb . That's what I meant to say,

@TampaTiger, o won 9 games this season against opponents that combined to have a winning percentage of .375%. Take out the Auburn record, it's drops to .275%. that's pretty poor. You might be fine with it, but some of us aren't. Good ole Coach o also talked down about some players not competing or playing in the bowl game, but lets not forget that he himself quit the LSU football team when he was a student athlete. Like I said, no chest.

Damn, that’s not cool at all. If you don’t want the kid, be a man and tell him.

Two things I know for sure. 1) This is the dark side of recruiting we often don't hear about. 2) There is more to this story.

It is now a numbers game and the Early Signing has made the numbers worse. LSU only has 4 players remaining to sign and I would suggest to Recruits to sign early because now the numbers are limited at all schools.

Agree. Had only 4 spots available after early signing period, but 5 guys on the board. Looks like Joiner is the odd man out, plus next year is looking good at RB.

Who did we sign that's better than this kid?

The signed Chris Curry and Tae Provens at RB. Both are ranked a lot lower.

Well all the recruits Lsu signed didn't want all the attention joiner wants to get, they don't need someone to hold their hand. Really need a qb and some db and maybe an elite wr to complete the 25 signed for 2018 season

I hope they told this kid that if he didn’t sign that we wouldn’t have a spot for him.

Regardless of what anyone feels about our coaching staff. If we really wanted this guy and believed we had a shot at him, we would be in constant contact with him. I’m not buying Joiner’s story. He’s probably going to sign with Bama or Auburn, and just wanted to add a little intrigue to it all. I also mentioned earlier the possibility of Guice telling O he’s returning next year, thereby eliminating the need for Joiner and freeing up another scholarship for a position of need. I don’t think that’s the case, but Derrius is of high character and is all about the LSU program, so it wouldn’t surprise me at all.

Guice isn't returning

It's 100% a numbers thing. We take 3 DB's and Chase at WR. Joiner would take the fifth spot if we had it.

attention whore.

He wants attention....prolly a Bama lock

I am willing to bet they told him the spots might be available after the early signing period....

That's awesome Mr drama queen joiner, So who else did ya want to hold your hand. Hmmmm everyone can't hold your hand while you commit. Time to be a big boy now and put on your big boy panties getting to be big stage :) Lsu moved on when found out joined wanted to play games, it was in his hand had it, didn't commit. Next man up
