Don't shoot the messenger here... and maybe this is old news because I haven't fully looked at the board... but
I live in MS and an Ole Miss fan co-worker is saying that the reason Jones is going on an official to FAU is because his coach and school admins had lied about his grades to keep other schools off of him and that the principal said he hasn't taken his ACT when he has...
Apparantly his parents have found out and are PISSED... and since Melvin Smith is now at FAU, the thinking is he blew the whistle...
Hope we can get him for an OV... I believe we could have a great shot if so!

There has to be a law broken here to forge a transcript either to make a player look better or worse.....please these rumors are so outlandish that you would forge a transcript to make a player look unqualified?? Im shaking my head....
I don't think he can take an official visit without taking either the ACT or SAT. I was under the impression he just went on an official to MSU which means he has taken the test.
Well wouldn't his HS be involved also. My son was allowed to have his ACT and HS transcript forwarded to his schools of choice during the recruiting period. We even hand delivered a few HS transcripts. I am not buying this.
Well what I was told said nothing about transcripts being forged... It was saying that his head coach was telling College coaches when they called that his grades were not real good... I'm speaking of early on here... this didn't happen last week, as I understand it was happening early in the process so more people didn't show interest in the kid... obviously, after the UA game, his stock soared
I gave you an upvote just in case one of these whinny arses, decide they want to down vote you for just passing on info. I for one appreciate all the info I can get, good or bad, and then see what comes of it. RTR !!!!!!!
Thanks! Was wondering where it came from... It is crazy that you have to defend to the death info you pass on...
Very stupid indeed! It's like everyone is 12yrs. old on here at times!
No one is bashing him what so ever about passing the info on. They are attacking what he was told which is fair game. I do not doubt one second he was told the info. How are we attacking him?

Is a random down vote for what he posted not lame? I think that it is.
upvote here too just in case....!!
I feel you. There's always a ton of rumors around this time of year.
But it's not too far off of the crap in Memphis. Not Albert. The kid with auburn this year.
Well you will have to excuse me then. I do not pay any mind to the voting and did not notice it.
So your source is some dude from your office? Just making sure...
He was reading from an OM message board of which someone from Houston was saying... Good lord, I don't give a Rat's ass if anyone believes it... not sure I do... Guy's I'm no insider by any stretch of the imagination and have never claimed to be.
I would figure that before any strong consideration goes to a recruit, that that players coach is contacted... about grades, attitude, character etc... outside of Camps how else could a college coach find any info out? It seems logical to me that if any Coach was a fan of any one school (MSU), he could be persuaded by a that school (MSU) to say things like... "the kid has a ways to go in the classroom", or "doubtful he'll qualify" to throw other coaches off... Then Mullen and Melvin can say... look, no one else gave you the time of day, we offered you first and were loyal to you...
Maybe I'm as stupid as Te'o, but that seems like at least a little bit possible...
Also, no one really pays very much attention to recruits from MS... this kid was on really nobodys radar until the Under Armour game
so is he going on an official to AU (auburn) or FAU (florida atlantic)?
AU = FAU
Dang triple post
