          Clemson, Florida, LSU and Oklahoma are the four finalist...per the recruiting experts.

          Two of those got embarrassed this week.

          One didn’t go bowling but had a shit season

          One dominated Florida’s ass big time.

          I like our chances based on the “what have you done lately” criteria.

            Watch the crystal balls slowly flip to LSU today. No reason - I’ve just gotten pretty cynical on recruiting.

              I don’t think Caleb has as much influence as we hope he does. I think he’s well liked but maybe not too persuasive.

                Possibly....tOSU was on his list at one time.

                  Word on the recruiting board is that it looks to be Clemson. We'll see what the crystal balls start saying. I'm not especially confident.

                    Did anyone in that board watch last night’s game....

                      I'm sure lots of us enjoyed the game, bittersweet as it is to see tOSU advance, but in the end these decisions come down to more than single games or peer-to-peer recruiting pitches. Would love to have him, but his family rubs me the wrong way. But what do I know? I'm just an asshole on a message board.

                        I know that they really liked Norman but we have girlfriends and family relocation involved in this. The logistics of all this when you live in NOVA would suggest that Clemson is the easiest move.

                          As far as Clemson, just because they lost big doesn't carry all the weight necessarily. What does their offensive line look like after seniors graduate and underclassmen decide to go pro. What are the numbers? What are chances of seeing field? OU has a good shot; the losers of CFP games are not necessarily eliminated from recruiting though.

                              Not holding my breath. The guy could be in the mix at LT next year, but, whatever. We could be projected to be preseason #1, put 15 guys in the 2022 NFL draft, and have the best offensive staff in the country, and we still wouldn't get these guys. Geez!

                                For what it's worth, there is a fresh CB for Leigh to OU from an LSU insider. I'll take that considering on Wheaton's announcement day, early CB's pointed Alabama.

                                    Don’t let that hold you down. If you try harder, you could become an asshole in real life too. Set a goal, work hard, aspiration is a wonderful thing. You don’t have to be “Just an asshole on a message board” forever. Think big. You can do it.

                                        Clemson isn't exactly a short haul from NoVA. I mean, he would be closer to NoVA for away games, but Clemson is about an 8 hour drive. Might as well get on a plane. And if you're going to get on a plane, you might as well fly to Oklahoma.

                                              If I was a OT blocking for the #1 QB in the nation would be high on my list. He should get a lot of airtime blocking for Rattler/Caleb. BB is one of the best O-line coaches in the game that's put way less naturally talented players than him in the league. The O-line will have room for him after next year as well assuming he doesn't beat out an upperclassman next year.

                                                Going to games really isn't the issue. The issue is that the family and apparently the girlfriend are all going to relocate where Tristan goes. Clemson is still in the same part of the country as NoVa. From a logistics and cultural standpoint Clemson may seem more comfortable to them than to move all the way out to Oklahoma.

                                                The mom is a nurse supervisor and an APRN so she can get a job anywhere. But the girlfriend? Who knows what she is thinking. And for Tristan and his brother? As programs, Oklahoma and Clemson is pretty close to a wash.

                                                  I'd fly from DCA to LAX before contemplating driving south on I-95 out of NOVA on a friday.

                                                    Oof no joke. I95 from DC to Fredericksburg...or...I5 from LA to San Diego

                                                    Might be the worst drives to make in traffic in America.

                                                    Alpharetta to ATL on the 400 is right there.

                                                      I agree with everything you said. But that doesn’t really have anything to do with my comment on CW’s recruiting influence or lack thereof.

                                                          This one could be game-changing. It's an elite player than can immediately elevate our weakest position.

                                                                        He would be completely untouchable and Wheaton could even now end up at OU and Saban and the NCAA would be made to like it. Mr. Mogilevich would need to work remotely though due to some uh...extenuating circumstances.

                                                                        Comment
