At first, I had a real bad feeling about AA heading to OSU this weekend, but after thinking about it, I've come to realize this kid is just very smart. He never really shows his cards. I checked his tweets. He seems to treat each school and each visit with the same amount of attention. Much different than a kid like David Williams who retweeted over 100 comments from PSU fans during his visit the last weekend in March. Williams barely mentioned his trip to Wisc. He's a lock (maybe this weekend). The only thing that scares me about AA is that pic he posted with Meyer and his henchmen. Alex sort of looks like a kid who just found an X-Box under the Christmas tree. Let's hope he's as smart as he appears and doesn't do anything rash this weekend.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Meyer has a Svengali like appeal. He can be all things to all people, that is why he has been such an effective recruiter throughout his career. If you are a religious family he will summon up his divine visions. Education based? He will talk academics all day long. If you are a naive kid with stars in your eyes, or your family comes from less than great financial circumstances, he will sell NFL Riches. I suspect he will be all over Alex and family the entire weekend. He will push hard for a verbal, and with others likely committing, it might prove hard for Alex to resist. If he comes back w/o committing we have a shot, but I don't view us as a leader in his recruitment.
Kid has visited a ton of places and managed to not commit. I think he'll manage getting through another weekend unless OSU leads by a large margin.
I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said.
