Exit Interviews: Signed prospects share memorable social media comments
MORE EXIT INTERVIEWS: Signed prospects give advice to younger players
With the majority of the 2019 recruiting class already signed and just a select few big names still on the market, we thought it would be a good time to give the elite prospects from the class the opportunity to reflect on the recruiting process. In a series we are calling “Exit Survey” we polled some of the nation’s top talents at the recent all-star games to get their thoughts on notable recruiting topics.
Today’s question: What’s the most unusual/memorable thing a fan said/tweeted at you during the recruiting process?
“Just, there’s a been a lot of LSU fans that get on me. They start with ‘How are you not gonna stay home?’ I’m like, ‘LSU didn’t even offer me. How am I gonna stay home?’ I can’t go to a school that didn’t offer. I didn’t get anything too vulgar. I mean, maybe I have, but I don’t pay attention that much.”
“One fan told me I was a god - he said I was a walking god - and I was like like, what? Alright, bet. It was just somebody on Twitter. I think it was an FSU fan.”
“One day I got a random DM from an Ohio State fan cussing me out and talking about how Jim Harbaugh is dumb and all that stuff - you know how Ohio State fans are - but I just don’t pay attention to it.”
“A fan told me ‘I love you’ once. I was just on Instagram one day, and some dude tagged me telling me he loved me.”
“I’ve been hearing lately that I committed to Kentucky to win Mr. Football in my state. But you can go ask the coaches that vote on the award if that’s why I won it. But that’s probably the craziest thing lately and I just shake my head at that.”
“Nothing really bad. Just a lot of people not wanting me to go to their rivals. I have had people telling me things and a Michigan fan made a Twitter account just dedicated to trying to get me there. I think that’s the craziest thing.”
“I was on Instagram Live once and a fan told me ‘I’m your biggest fan. He was like, you better remember me. I was your biggest fan when you were laying down doing nothing. Remember that.’ I was like ‘what do you mean? That’s weird."
