    I disagree about White being a reach. His offer sheet is good. It isn't elite, but he's not someone we are trying to get over FIU, NIU and so on. He has offers from Duke, Nebraska, Louisville and West Virginia. That's not bad. He isn't a CJ McWilliams or Luke Ancrum. That said, I do understand your concern about his footwork. I have the same worries when watching his film.

    Bubba Bolden, USC safety is withdrawing from school following a 28 month suspension due to an off-site incident. He is friends with Chis Steele.



    Are we interested? No denying the talent. I think the suspension was totally excessive for underage drinking and trash talking?

    Well, if you think we should be competing w/ Duke & Louisville for football players it tells me how far we've fallen as a program. I'd prefer to see 10 or so SEC teams, along w/ most of the ACC, and Ohio State, etc making offers. Like I said, I'd take the kid....and I think they should hold onto him until we know what's going to happen w/ the other kids. But he's not that good. Can he become good? Maybe. I'd add him as a 6th OL, but not in the top 5 (if we can get the other kids we're after).

      Steele making a path for his exit in their class. I’ve said it all along I think he’ll end up a Gator.

        Must be more to that Bolden 28 month suspension than a drunken fuss. Gotta be some #metoo girls involved?
        And this question: can you transfer or re-enter another school devoid of punishment. (Didn't Grier's NCAA-punishment diminish once he went elsewhere?)

        Another consideration is if he's academically eligible. Was he taking classes during the suspension?

        There's also an SEC rule about not being able to accept a kid who left another program because of behavior issues.

          According to his tweet, he was cleared by the Title IX coordinator.

          But it is no longer about just sexual harassment. You can file a complaint that a classmate gave you the stinkeye in class and you can get suspended for a number of months. I would not want to be in college these days. All you have to say is you felt threatened. The 28 months was calculated as the latest graduation date of the persons that were involved. It is no longer the police and arrests that you have to worry about, it is the student judicial committees. I m all for abolishing them altogether except for cheating.

            Leo, sounds like the worst threatening encroachment comes from the council ?

            Absolutely. Here's a link to some articles about it from USC's 247 site:

            With the grumblings at Auburn this is a good time for the coaches to go hard after Kiondre Jones. He'd be the highest ranked OL in the class. They also have a couple of kids we could probably take a shot at; 4-star SDE Jaron Handy from Mississippi (6'5 280), 3-star WDE Jamond Gordon from Mississippi (6'4 275), 3-star OT Justin Osborne (6'4 300) from IMG, 4-star Safety Zion Puckett from Georgia.

            We're not Alabama or UGA (recruiting wise), so I'm not sure where the arrogance comes from that we wouldn't take any of those other players.

                  I'd rather take Ingraham for SDE.
