Neither... Plain talk? He smelled bullsh!t when coaches spoke to him, had his own plan and Grambling said the right thing. "Where do you want to play?"

For a smaller school Grambling plays some hardnose football.  Young man has some impressive stats, might be hearing about him soon.

Not sure where the article got its information ..."19th best high school recruit out of Alabama for the class of 2018"?  Not even top 50. Nice reporting newsstar

Looks like Alabama offered almost a year ago. Sounds like the guy didn't have an actually offer. Good for him for finding a school that he thinks is the perfect fit for him.

 I don't know the kid, but something tells me you just made that darn up because YOU can't imagine anyone turning down Alabama for Grambling for any other reason...

Absolutely true but I wouldn't expect people to know much about SWAC football on here. For the people who are clueless go watch the Arizona vs Gambling game and get back with. They almost won while losing there starting QB in the 2nd quarter.

SWAC usta rule when they could scoop up all the borderline academic casualties.  Their rosters arenít carrying that type talent anymore.

Bottom line, all things equal with full ride to each, there is NO Fng way I pick GSU over Bama!
There is more to it. I would agree that. Grades or competition are potential reasons.

True because there are more options now than back in the day for kids with academic issues. However, SWAC is still producing NFL quality players. Chad Williams, Grambling State is a nice WR for Arizona. Terron Armstead from UAPB is a very solid starting left tackle for Saints. I remember seeing an article that stated in 2016 there were 14 former SWAC players on NFL rosters. For a conference with mostly schools that have an enrollment of 5000 or less...not too bad. The NFL still knows about the SWAC!

No SWAC used to rule when PWI's (Predominantly white institutions) weren't allowing African Americans athletes into there schools. Once they started seeing how talented they were they changed that. And if you think the SWAC still doesn't have that same talent you're wrong. The only difference between HBCU's and Major colleges are facilities, resources, and the Strength and conditioning coaches. You know how many D1 athletes transfer from major D1 colleges to a HBCU and don't make an impact. Dedrick Poole wasn't even a featured back when he transferred to UAPB. I can go on and on. I played for Mississippi Valley State and we would get D1 transfers in and they would be no greater talent wise then what we had. They would definitely look the part though. Half of our roster got D1 offers or looks but we're passed over either because of grades, off the field issues, or size. It's a lot that goes into recruiting.

Much ta do about nothing Bama offers what 100-300 athletes.   Many of those will commit before the words are out of the coaches mouth if they let them.  Why exactly do you think schools like Bama donít fill up their classes way in advance?  Because almost all their offers are conditional.  Itís the wise player, parent and closest advisers that look hard at what Bama is ďreallyĒ offering.   Better the players keep some eggs in their baskets.

You could probably say that about other football conferences (Pac-12 for example) but that's not a reason to fold.

Kid says Grambling is the better option to play football over Alabama. Iím not buying any of this being legit. Doesnít make logical sense. Doubtful he had any committable offers to blue chip schools.

I guess the fake news headline made for a lot of clicks though...thatís what itís all about these days.

And so do 100's of other kids who don't end up at SEC or even P5 schools. 247 doesn't list which offers are committable but if you look at the situation it can be pretty easy to tell if it's a real offer or not.

For years now itís always been kind of the elephant in the room type of deal when talking about offer lists. Some of these offers are completely contingent...school will tell kid ďyes we want you, if this or this happens we will have a spot for you, we will let you know.Ē Kid tells recruiting service and everyone else X school(s) have ďofferedĒ him and thatís what ya have to go by. Makes their profile look better and more legit so people buy more subscriptions to said recruiting service.

Iím simply not going to buy that a 3* kid from Mobile Alabama was recruited hard by Alabama and LSU but he turned them down flat to go to Grambling because thatís a ďbetter option.Ē That doesnít make logical sense to me.

What's the difference between Alabama and Grambling besides Bama being a bigger platform which really doesn't matter much these days with technology and social media. Both schools offer full rides, both school won champions recently, both schools have players in the NFL. Of course Alabama has more.  But is it that hard to believe a athlete thinks he has a better chance to fulfill his destiny at a HBCU than Alabama?

All we need is that ONE 4 or 5 * recruit to actually spurn the big colleges for the HBCU and start the trend where it needs to return.  Hopefully it'll happen soon, bro. ✊🏽
