    I didn't realize LSU was the 4th school he had committed to.

    LSU’s Les Miles came to Champagnat. Another morning, Alonso looked up and saw Mario Cristobal, Alabama’s offensive line coach. “Then I saw the guy in the suit behind him,” she said. “It was Nick Saban. I thought, Is he that small?

    LMFAO

    What's the word on this guy? Has he been cleared, or what?

    Clearinghouse has everything they requested. Now just time for them to look at the dates submitted for 2 of his classes and he should be cleared. But they move at their own pace as we know.

    About damn time! Probably a redshirt at this point unless he is just super good.

    Probably would take a least half a season and multiple DT injuries.

    WUP!!! Wonder who the "'other SEC program" might be?

    He (Valentine) hinted that another SEC program might have presented a case to the league office that delayed his enrollment, even after the NCAA recently cleared him academically.

    Looks like he can enroll and start classes but can't practice until the SEC review is complete.

    Word going around is that it was Billy Gonzales who coaches at Miss St now. He recruits Valentine's area and has hard feelings about him and Stud on being let go from LSU. Can't for the life or me understand how they don't realize we kept giving them chances over and over and kept them longer than anyone else probably would.

    If shown to be a false report the Billy G should have some sort of sanction. I understand recruiting is cut throat, but he is hurting the kid not the coach or program. That is beyond the pale!
