    One of the top tos guys posted that he heard early this week for JJ to announce, which reinforced what i heard last week from my top guy. Hearing alot of duck rumors and swing. But could be talk

    mentioned time-frame in my first post on this topic....no verbal last week put us behind going into this weekend. Appears to be slipping away, but have faith in KO.

    Zionn and/or Husky99 - are we in a period where coaches can still contact recruits?

    So, let's recap. 99's no longer confident and is hearing Oregon. Zionn's also lost confidence, but is still optimistic and has faith in KO. Huskyforlife's last post on the topic still favored UConn. On top of all this, I've got a source that claimed she was told Maryland by JJ himself. What does all this mean? The field is wide open. Even during and before his commitment to UNLV, Jackson had the reputation of being ambiguous and very tight-lipped. This current situation is only par for the course with regards to his commitment. Hopefully this ends well for the good guys, but who can be sure? I'll stay cautiously optimistic until given a good reason to be otherwise.

    In other words recruiting is fluid and take the recruiting news with a grain of salt because these are young kids AND there is a lot of external pressures on them.

    Like the recap!

    My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw JJ say he was going to Syracuse at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

    I'm hearing parents like Oregon, he likes UConn. I still think we land him.

    He got himself in this position, hopefully he realizes that. Nothing against his parents wishes, but if that's true, he shoukd make his own decision.

    Yeah, Oregon 247 mod is saying that Mom was already a fan of Oregon, and that Dad accompanied JJ on the official to Oregon and that won him over too. Usually tough to overcome what Mom and/or Dad wants (most recent example for UConn: toss-up between UConn and Louisville for Christian Vital and his mom preferred UConn), but like Zionn said, total faith in KO.

    Didn't know that.

    Also have heard Maryland has been out for awhile, so who knows at this point.

    And the Maryland 247 mod is saying that UConn isn't a factor at all (which I really don't believe). Regardless, it seems this recruitment should be wrapping up this week.
