I just checked his Instagram, saw it there, and was coming back to post that here.His decommitment was announced on this site by Peegs staff, which said it came via Instagram.
You didn’t miss anything, it’s just recruiting. When players commit that far in advance, rarely does it hold up without second thoughts. You can count on the fact he has a bunch of people in his ear about what he should or shouldn’t do, and you have to remember, these are kids.Why is this not a shocker? What did I miss?
I've never put much stock in commitments from kids who won't be out of high school for two more years.
Considering this young man lives far from Indiana and has no connection to IU, that I've seeen, made me think from the beginning that this commitment would probably change. Hopefully he'll come back but I won't be going to Vegas on it.
That seems to be true. Whether it is football or basketball, the biggest “recruiter /player” are the ones who indicate they are trying to sway other recruits to come to IU and within a couple years, they bail.I was concerned about it because he was such a 'true believer'. Those are usually pretty unpredictable/irrational......see the Water Cooler for many examples.
I hope when he visits he finds he made the right choice and chooses IU as his team to play for.Think he is still taking a visit to IU, so don’t think he’s burned tthe bridge, just letting himself take visits. I don’t blame Hine for that, just wish he held off committing the first time. It if he ultimately ends up at IU, I still welcome him!
