The guy was set to come here. The situation changed when LSU offered.
There are thousands of recruits out there that would change their mind if a different team offered. I like my job, I enjoy it, am content with it, but if Bo called me up and asked me to be on his staff, I'd quit in a heartbeat. I don't consider myself to be placeholding.
Just because something better comes along, doesn't mean one is placeholding in the spot they are at.
