If TB verbals and signs in Feb, he would be the biggest recruit in the school's history. I have heard the argument that the staff shouldn't go after the kid because of the loyalty the hometown stud. DeMarcus Smith has shown the program by sticking to his commitment.
I love DS and I can't wait to see him on campus in January which could very well happen. He not only is a big time player, he's from the city, has been a fan his entire life and as previously mentioned, remained firm in his commitment.
DS was one of the first to commit to the program when HCCS was given the keys. I watched a couple of his games personally and think we are in for a heckuva ride with him behind center.
At the same time, a 5 star Quarterback has visited Louisville and cancelled a couple other visits since. A visit to Cincinatti was cancelled as well as a return visit to his original school of choice; Miami. I nearly left out another visit that he cancelled; LSU.
Twitter was abuzz yesterday with news that TB committed to the Cards, but no announcement has been made by the young man. With the uninspired hiring of Al Golden at The "U", the feeling that some folks are getting is that Teddy's mom was not happy with the fan's reaction when TB decommitted from the Canes.
So it seems the Cards are in good shape with the signal caller. What does this mean for the program? It means that IF TB chooses the Cards, we have two elite QB's that could enroll in January and compete immediately for the starting job next season. BOTH of them here in January to learn the playbook and participate in Spring practice.
I understand what a coup it was to land Peanut Whitehead a few seasons back. Taking the Defensive End out of Auburn and Alabama's back yard was an enormous step for the program here. But TB is a QB. The most important position in all of sports.
And while a commitment from the young QB doesn't put us on the same level as the "Big 3" in the Sunshine State, it certainly sends a message to the Big East, and more importantly, the young ball players that are looking to get away from home and compete for National Championships. In short, this would be HUGE!!!
