Thread: NSD #1

    Garrison Hearst played at Lincoln County. He certainly didn't fly under the radar. I'm having a hard time understanding our recruiting strategy. This kid may be an all American one day but the fact is, he's not showing any other offers except ours. Confused? I am.

    If I remember correctly Cherard Freeman played at Lincoln County...
    Yes he did, good memory. He and I hung out a lot as students.

    Yup. It's hard for me to believe that half of our commits flew under the radar of 128 other fbs programs.

    Something everyone needs to understand is Georgia Southern has advantages of finding late bloomers with kids in neighboring counties. Some kids donít mature until their Junior / Senior yr. heck some kids hit puberty that late while others hit it in 6th grade. With a player from Liberty County (small school and playing competition who may not have DIV 1 prospects), Reid would fly under radar especially without big offensive stats.

    It would be nice to have built relationships with 3 star recruits, but that ship has sailed this season with coaching changes and offensive and defensive philosophy changes. Trust the coaches especially when a recruit doesnít have Div 1 subdivision scholarships.

    Apparently, math is hard.
    From gseagles.com:

    The Eagles added five defensive players - four safeties and an inside linebacker - and four offensive players - a quarterback, a wide receiver and an offensive lineman - in the period.

    I think I still have my differential equations textbook from 30 years ago. I might want to check that.

    Some players never get noticed because they played on terrible teams. Chad Motte played for Arab (Ala.) High which posted a 2-8 record during his freshman season, then went downhill. Arab lost 30 straight games during his last three years.

    He earned a scholarship to Georgia Southern after Eagle coaches saw him knocking down one defender after another during a passing drill in an Eagle youth summer football camp held in Statesboro.

    "It's a great story," Davis said. "Here's a guy who didn't win in high school and now he's at one of the best college programs. He knows both sides of winning and losing."

    That’s not something unique to gs. Every school can do that.

    Itís unique in the proximity of Statesboro. Now if someone in this forum had some insight if Reid attended a camp that our coaches partake in, that would be insightful.

    Also Southern by not offering this recruit until late in the game basically hid his abilities from others to see.
