to think about that. Never saw a football player literally hide behind his 3 year old daughter to make his commitment. Really amazing.
Good gosh. Did you see him kiss the BAMA helmet at the end?
He is ours and thats final. I know! ROLL TIDE
"To be the best; you have to beat the best...and BAMA is the best...'nuff said. ROLL TIDE!!"
He's scared to death of the backlash it is going to bring that's for sure. I think at the beginning he was playing the game and having fun but lately he's realized it's not that fun anymore.
He was nervous as crap. Reminded me of Julio a little. Uncomfortable in front of the camera.
Look at it this way. Our chances are better than they would be if he said Auburn.
Not every 17-18 year old person is comfortable in front of cameras or public speaking type stuff. And who knows what has been going on in his head
I think it's a kid who is overwhelmed by everything. He has a ton of pressure on him and I think he is a pleaser, he doesn't like to feel like he lets people down. I don't know if he signs with us on Wednesday or not but I hope he does well wherever he ends up.
Sometimes people forget with all his physical attributes and recruiting hoopla that he is still a kid. One who seems to love his daughter very much. I can respect that.
The boy is hurting...he is conflicted. BUT, he finally let his head take control to do what's best for him and his family. Who can doubt that he has friends and acquaintances that he loves, and I'm sure TT made him tons of promises, but that's all over now.

I can't imagine the pressure he's been under, not to mention being on TV to announce something that has been built up like this. I can easily see this as a normal reaction. I thought the same thing about the Robert Foster commitment (clearly he hasn't had hardly any drama though), but Foster has been solid despite his announcement appearing to be excruciatingly painful for him.
Follow me on twitter, @BSCTIDE. Let's tweet.
I actually felt a little pity for him. He needs a strong male influence in his life.
Coach Saban is the man for the job.
Roll Tide Reuben.
The minute I saw that he had a jacket on to cover his tat I knew he was going with Bama (tonight).
You would be better off not "thinking".
But Roll Tide and all
Trust the King!
