I get what you’re saying. I could be wrong. I have no inside information in it. As you have pointed out, they have really upped their game in recruiting locally. We got most of the big targets, and I include Fidone as a local kid. We may still land Dickerson.I guess I have a hard time believing we offered a PWO spot to a kid that doesn't fit our offense. If that did happen we have massive issues.
I personally think it’s possible that they were on the fence with IZ. But I think IZ told them he would not consider a walk on offer, only a scholarship. That was something I heard early in the process but I can’t confirm it’s accuracy. Then, once he realized he wasn’t going to get a scholarship to any P5 program he wavered. Then the walk on offer came. I think there are two sides to this story. I don’t think there’s anything outrageous on either side. And I don’t have any concerns about him choosing Misery. He does have family there. As someone else said (I think it was Lars) I think this is a big nothing burger. There are plenty of other things to be critical of, just not this.
