Have gotten tons of texts from coaches and people close to school. An asst coach was fired yesterday for recruiting. 

Got a text with picture of three kids from York County wearing AK jersey's with the word from a coach "Recruited" This is not a good look for the school. 

Will not release names of players, but this is serious. 

Funny though, how a school who has fans who complain about Catholic recruiting have been caught doing it themselves.

I can confirm CMS has been contacted and the three players are NOT at AK. Just want to clear that up. CMS voided the "transfers"

You are a school of 3000 kids yet you still need to recruit? LOL. That's the joke right there.

They got to meet Urban Meyer?

Rumors about this have been going on for over a month. Looks like CMS acted on it.

That's a one time deal. Urban aint gonna be at AK much so if that's a selling point they may wanna rethink it

Hey Cougs---

York County is fertile CC territory but these are NOT CC type players. None are 150 lb diabetics!

These kids were way too athletic for us to take. I do know that our diabetics are better at football than yours!

This is information recently provided by former Catholic player, Ladge.  

 

Sad to see a teamate passed away this week. Eric Grant Class of 86 at Charlotte Catholic was an All Mecklenburg County RB in the 85 season. He took over the main running duties when Boo Hood ( Elijiah's Uncle ) went down for the season. He is the example Oddo would typically use when accused of recruiting. Why would I recruit a 150lb diabetic running back?

We know. That's why Fred posted it, Grant was a helluva player for that team.

I felt pretty confident Fred was referencing that.  I wanted others to know it was a real story.

 

RIP Eric Grant.

Curious how an assistant coach--not the head coach--takes the bullet. If the "recruits" were meeting with Meyer at AK, and the head coach was on Meyer's staff, how does he not know? Or maybe I'm not following what I'm reading and hearing correctly

No clue why an asst got fired and not HC to be honest with you.

they know who they are, they go around trying to contact kids during every offseason. They get a decent amount of transfers every offseason so it must be working. Not 100% sure, but I believe CMS may have been notified at least once about this staff, but no penalties for some reason.

And no, I'm not talking about Mallard Creek.
