    Re: Another decommit today?

    Why would you post a thread like this with no source and no information besides a tease of a sliver of possible information.

    Re: Another decommit today?

    Based on some Twitter speculation, looks like John Leday is putting pressure on Jalen Barnes to switch his commit to Houston. High school teammates.

    This is a tweet from a fan directed at John Leday that he retweeted:

    good job getting Jalen Barnes down at UofH! Big things happening here in Houston
    Not sure if it's a done deal yet or not, Barnes may be having trouble with the decision:

    Damn imma f*** up ..


    Im stuck between a rock and a hard place
    Apologies in advance for Twitter speculation but this thread needed some info, regardless of how bad it may be.

    Check for yourself, Barnes on Twitter is "@YungPhenom_" and Leday is "@CatchAnything"

    Jalen Barnes - Yahoo! Sports

    Kamari Syrie - Yahoo! Sports

    Both 2*s. Barnes seems to have better offers (Oklahoma St, Mississippi St, Utah) vs us and North Texas for Syrie.

    Agreed. Not even a mention of where you could go to get the information. Come on man.

    Email from a buddy. Not sure of his source but he would have no reason to lie about it. He is a hard core Cyclone.

    Nice. In the future include that information in your first post. Your buddy might just be speculating off of the twitter posts above. Who knows.

    Thus the question mark. His email was pretty funny as we always discuss these kids and their understanding of the word commitment.

    Re: Another decommit today?

    I know it's cliche, but Houston (losing record in 2012, no bowl game, 30K fans/game) or a BCS Conference team (ISU: bowl game, 54Kfans, did I mention BCS conference?)? I just don't quite get the logic behind some kids' decisions.

    Obviously, each player has to decide individually what is best for him, but it seems like they should hold on their "commitment" until they're truly sure of where they'd like to play. Rivals shows Barnes never visited - if true, wouldn't you think he'd at least want to do that before finalizing a decision?

    Two years ago, Houston was 13-1, ranked in the top 20, beat Penn State in a bowl game, and got all kinds of national exposure. They were likely one loss away from a BCS bowl. When is the last time ISU had a season like that? Also, I believe that Houston will be part of the Big East in 2013, which is a BCS conference. And don't forget warm-weather school in an NFL town...
