"We have a head coach who now has full control over our recruiting board and he is forcing our assistants to take oral commitments from players no one wants or players that everyone has backed off of."
I know about the Humphries kid and the Grisham sibling already being on board and this is what I presume the poster was referring to. I hope our coach is not just being a nice guy in some instances and creating scenarios for some kids that may prove beneficial for them later in life as like what has happened to him.
This situation, if accurate, combined with the lack of depth due to 11 walk-ons on scholarship does not bode well moving forward. Swinney may not know X's and O's but he should understand recruiting and numbers given the fact he was a former recruiting coordinator and a successful recruiter.
