Taking commits from 8th graders? Tim Floyd is taking recruiting in a very bad direction and can only hope the NCAA steps in and puts an end to this stupidity since the parents won't. I know I would tell a coach off if he tried to do that used car crap with my middle school child.

It makes the school look like recruiting pedophiles. Really its almost funny cause it means nothing,, not really.

I had the same thought when I saw that last night. Michael Jackson might be their recruiting coordinator.

I don't know whether I think this is right or wrong. The rules really don't say it's ethically wrong, so I have no problem with it. As Billy G said, if you don't want to be behind you will start recruiting a player when he's a freshmen.

^^^That's b/c he just got a commit in the 2010 class.

Always liked USC, so good for Floyd. :)

Simply amazing and that's wanting to win pretty dang bad. I agree though this is out of hand.

it's just the way things are today, agree or disagree with it. as much as i don't like it on one hand, OTOH I can see exactly why it's legal like this.

Freshman maybe. Middle school kid? I find this entirely pathetic. I will laugh if this blows up in his face and the kid is a marginal prospect by his senior year of HS. What kind of PR would you get for blowing off a kid you took a commitment from when he was still very much a little kid?

I blame the NCAA more than Floyd. The NCAA shold make it illegal because if ints not there will always be coaches who do things like this. Floyd is just doing his job.

Good point. If the NCAA made this a violation then Floyd wouldn't be doing it.

No, Gillispie said that before Euton ever committed. You don't really believe Gillispie has changed his philosophy on that all of a sudden, do you?

It's silly, but why is it wrong? Really?

That's how I feel, GD88. What's wrong about this? If you don't get on a kid early, somebody else will.

So did UK get a commit from the 2010 class or what?

NCAA seems to favor bball than football, b/c no way that would happen in college football recruiting.

:cheers: Really I worry about how this is going. It's great that UK has a 2010 and a 2009 commit, but these kids could change their minds or they could turn out not to be top players by the time they get to UK. I went to high School with a kid that was ranked the number 1 freshman in the state of Kentucky. By the time he finished high school no one wanted him at any college. I really feel it's OK to be talking to Sophs and Jrs, but they really shouldn't be recruited until they are Srs. This will go on anyway until the NCAA makes a rule. We all know that the NCAA gets bored not making new rules so they will get to it some day.:rotf:
