I have started seeing a lot of 2014 recruits retweet articles from 247 and BOL. Just informing ya'll that they can easily read these threads, so just be careful what you write on here.
Just a warning, but this also is good for 247/BOL as more and more people including these young men are paying attention to what is being written on this site.
Wait, does that include me?
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Any kid who would base his decision on what anybody writes on a message board probably doesn't have the mental ability to last at the University of Alabama anyway.
That might be true...remember the Chik-fil-a guy? We would probably be amazed on why kids go to certain colleges.
While I could see a prospect reading these boards to see what people say about them, I would hope the realize that sometimes people on these boards are pretending to be fans of one team and really fans of a rival team. We have plenty of people on this board that say things about prospects and are really auburn or tennessee fans, and I'm sure there are plenty of Alabama fans on other teams boards as well.
That is why Tim and the boys are over these threads and can delete them at anytime
We have to remember that 17 year olds are 17 year olds and not quite as mature as we might imagine...and I suspect we were the same way in our younger years....I firmly believe Bama or any other school could lose a great recruit in a close battle over some silly board comments. In a very tight decision It might just be their perception of fans that sways them one way or another.
You pretty much only write about them once they are on the team, so you are exempt.
Thanks for posting.
Really don't like bashing any high school kid...no matter where he chooses to play
demetrius goode says hi.

FYI they have had access for years......
goode was committed to kentucky. he went to their boards and saw that they were talking trash about him (grades) and he decommitted. he then came to Bama.
