Richard Jibunor, Soph LB Enters Transfer Portal
« on: June 17, 2019, 12:13:45 pm »

Richard Jibunor is a 4 star LB  that played for Auburn.  Enters the portal.

How badly do we need this guy, since our LB is looking pretty thin?

I think we make it a priority getting him.

Not so sure about this one. From 247:

"Jibunor had much to improve upon during spring practices in March and April, teammates said.
"He showed us speed, but he has to get better with hands and heís got to be coachable," Moultry said at the time... Because [defensive line coach] (Rodney Garner) canít keep saying the same thing, and once he keeps saying the same thing, heís going to give up on him...
Jibunor was arrested and charged on New Year's Eve 2017 with a DUI, failure to maintain lane and improper driving..."

He's an athletic specimen and was expected to compete for the starting job, so the transfer alone raises red flags. Overall, I'm not sure he's a good fit for a team in the process of rebuilding.

I don't like the sound of that assessment even one little bit.  I am adamantly opposed to bringing reportedly problematic kids on board.  They may have an admirable amount of athletic potential; - - but their apparent potential for engendering thoroughly negative episodes on more than a single front outweighs any potential overall benefit in my book.  I'd pass on him.  Too risky.

Well, he could count toward next years class like Jones and Smith. Itís not like we wonít have a LB need this time next year.

Of course CCM will have to determine culture fit vs glaring need with Harris not returning

True, but he is from Athens, GA and didnít have a GA offer, just one of the many things that makes one pause.

Depends on a kids makeup. Sometimes when a kid runs into adversity slash trouble he kind of wakes up. Not saying but this guy would or would not learn from his mistakes, but sometimes people turn their lives around when they realize they are about to throw a huge opportunity away.
