Troopah & pals have a tendency to attract kids who are easily swayed by flash and salesmanship.
These types of kids are usually pretty mentally weak and tend to break down under pressure and/or have off the field issues.
Their fambly value sales pitch often works on kids from broken homes and troubled pasts.
Ultimately, Aubie gets these overly-hyped kids on campus -often with someone lubing the deal - and the kid never achieves his potential for whatever reason.
Once the superstar freshman realizes he's only as good as the average sophomore - which happens everywhere every year - they have 2 paths. The mentally strong will work harder and the mentally weak will self-destruct and wilt.
Aubie commits have a tendency to wilt.
