I wish the kid best but his recruiting was not handled properly on his end.

That is exactly the point. Muschamp is one of the best recruiters in the country and he totally understands what to say and what not to say to recruits. I think the kid made it up hoping Muschamp would honor his fake commit to Carolina.

Another announcement coming soon?

Quote:
#STRecruiting: According to Stone Mountain, GA Stephenson assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Corey Johnson, LB Tra Wilkins plans an announcement of some type Friday after the spring game. Wilkins tweeted a commitment to USC April 13th, and that tweet remains pinned to his page, but USC coach Will Muschamp has not publicly acknowledged the commitment with his "SpursUp" tweet. Wilkins has tweeted several new offers in recent days including Texas A&M and Purdue and he visited Minnesota last weekend.

So by his HS coach we're talking about his LB position coach, and not the head coach of the HS program?? Is this another Kenyatta Watson type guy? And he seems upset at another twitter dude, not upset with our staff.

But again, we've had a great relationship with the staff at Stephenson, and that's resulted in many of their kids coming to play for USC, as mentioned above. Muschamp isn't a guy who burns recruiting bridges just for the hell of it. I'm sure there's a legit reason for why it's played out like it has, and our staff hasn't done anything wrong here.....

Now he has a tweet saying,"You know you're the GOAT in recruiting when folks hate on you that don't know you. I'm everywhere. Watch your mouth because I'm better than you!!! The hot sign is on!!! (That was a tweet by him from 5/10/18)

That was by Corey Johnson and even John Whittle called him on being selfish and putting out bad advice.

We may be welcomed but I bet the kids are going to get an earful from the coaches about us for a long time. This happens when you don't make it clear whether an offer is committable or not to a kid and his coaches.
