    Eh, whatever. I tend to believe that these three have already played the last football games of their careers.

Also, Jaylon Ferguson was definitely a team leader. As a defensive teammate, if Ferguson told you to do something different to help out the team, YOU DID IT! We just seem to have a vacuum of team leadership this year.

    But, I certainly foresee current freshman LB Tyler Grubbs and a couple of others on our defense --maybe Milton Williams and BeeJay Wiliamson-- taking more of a leadership role next season.

    It's the LA Tech OFFENSE that's starving for leadership this year that Justin Henderson was supposed to supply.

    So many of Skipís other recruited transfers into the program were leaders as well.

    You might very well be right about that. At least as far as the NFL is concerned.

    Time to get rid of the participation trophy terminology.
    For better or for worse this mindset has taken over sports, from the youth leagues, throughout high school and college into the professional leagues. Everybody and every team is a winner and champion.

    NCAA says once you "recruit" someone with official visits, etc., the athlete CANNOT walk-on at that school. You're either a recruit or a walk-on.

    Walk-ons can visit the school on their own, meet with university personnel on their own appointment, go to their camps and visit with the coaches. If you're strong academically and not identified as a recruit, you will be (discreetly) encouraged to go the walk-on route during these unofficial visits. This is especially true when you're identified as a certain position player and the coach is only allocating a certain number of scholarship(s) to that position.

    Unless you're officially designated as a recruit by a program you're NOT going to get offered out of high school by that program.

    I have heard of cases where a kid was recruited, but the school ran out of scholarships before the kid signed. Instead of "greyshirting" he became a preferred walk-on, was that a violation? That is a situation where a recruit became a walk-on.

    Re: 3 Opt Out

    I don't see any benefit for Skip to harshly criticize any of their decisions. As for opting for the draft---Hardy maybe has a shot of getting drafted because of his physicality and good routes. Henderson didn't show any burst this season. And I only know about Campbell because he missed so many blocks.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    Never said that. Praising a guy who just got kicked out of school is wrong. Did you read the praises he offered for a guy who just got kicked out of school and probably should have been kicked out long ago?
