Looking at his Twitter, Dorian seems like a guy who is truly conflicted.  Doesn't much look like he's delaying his decision to enjoy the process . . . it's because he's still trying to decide.  I really like this guy.

Post by: SooieGeneris on February 08, 2018, 02:09:06 pm
He posted something on twitter last night in response to someone accusing him of delaying his signing due to wanting more attention. Something to the effect that he was delaying to allow his family to be there or something like that.

He is in CA and his family in is SC. He tweeted that his family had not seen him play since HS so the least he could do was to let them be there when he signs. At least, that's the way I took what he said.

It sure would be exciting to see this young man with Sosa Agim in the same front four...I hope he chooses Arkansas! If he doesn't, I wish he'd choose someone we don't play!

If he comes here, I really would expect he'd be an almost immediate starter. At minimum, I bet he'd play A LOT.

I was at Signing Day In The Rock when CCM took the phone call. It *looked* to me like the whole thing was orchestrated by CCM & Chief.

Morris was giving some intro to the class & Chavis walked up on stage with his phone & said something to the effect of 'yeah, he's on the phone.' Morris took it & tried (unsuccessfully) to put him on speakerphone. He held up the phone to the crowd to let Gerald hear the crowd call the Hogs (and it was a good loud call) then said 'yeah I'll call you later tonight.'

After getting off, CCM said 'we're really excited about the 16 we have now & 17 we'll have tomorrow, I mean hopefully we'll have a 17th tomorrow.' It didn't sound like a 'cross our fingers' kinda statement, it sounded confident, like he was already counting him in the final tally but had to correct himself since he wasn't signed yet.

Not trying to escalate hopes too much. I wasn't optimistic about Gerald with what I've read about him, but tonight Coach seemed to act as though he's planning on him joining the fold tomorrow.

i beg to differ on devin white. i was absolutely correct. I said "IF he plays RB in college it will be at Arkansas". Well, he was all-sec at LINEBACKER, so, I was right and SO WAS HE no go there over committing to Bert's ass.
was right on whaley and he was a uga commit at the time.
was right on petrino when he was a falcon at the time.
was right on merrick when he was 100% crystal ball to FSU at the time.
These are just some super long shots. Oh, and I made $200 head up on the Eagles ffs.

I am not like most on here afraid of anything bold AND INCLINED TO THINK the HOGS will fail all the damn time like a lot of you timid dudes.
Feel free to carry on with your bias.

You cannot set up anyone for disappointment after the fact. I think you meant, Why did CCM set everybody up for disappointment?... I believe that the guy is smart enough and the recruit is committed enough that it was a not so subtle way of celebrating with a recruiting event crowd the direction that the program is headed. CCM IS making it fun to be a Razorback again.

I hope he does come.  I wouldn’t be on here if I didn’t want him to come.  I thought it was a good sign he called last night but also cautious about it.  Plus the picks for A&M doesn’t look good.

RD said Dorian Gerald doesn't give anything away and other than him saying that I haven't really heard Arkansas recruiting guys say much recently. JC Shurburtt is a big pick for us. He is also from SC so until he flips his prediction to A&M I feel his prediction for us yesterday carries enough weight for me to have some hope that we could land Gerald.

A couple more picks to A&M, but Shurburtt and Kirk still predict to us. It looks like UF probably really is out of the picture because A&M is just gaining UF's predictions. They just keep dropping in prediction percentage. My hope is this is the end of the recruiting cycle and guys are making their final pick that to the best of the UF predictors knowledge it's not gonna be UF so they are going with their next best guesses which are going to A&M.

DGB was different because everyone was saying he was going to Arkansas.  Gerald was a long shot from the beginning.  The staff did a lot just to get him to visit.  A full year building relationships and more wins will help Arkansas get more of these recruits in the future.  Anytime you are competing against every SEC school you will lose more than you win.

If you really want to know I will tell you. It's because you don't make "predictions" but rather state that you are in the know about how something is going to turn out. (No need to cite references to this). Then, when you are right you claim like you had a leg up on everyone else because you are on the "inside." So when your guess doesn't turn out correct, people like to remind you of it more than most.

Pretty much all Morris said was I have this Razorfast ‘18 recruit on the phone.  We hope to add him to our team.  He made a couple comments about he would wear #5.  Someone asked him during the Q&A if it was Gerald.  He said he cannot say a recruit’s name or confirm or deny it.  He said I can take a drink of water if it is him though, then took a drink.  I don’t know how some on this thread got that Gerald said he was all Hog or that CCM said it was a done deal from that.

I believe about the only thing he said was that we'd be signing a 17th recruit later this week, or at least hoped to sign a 17th recruit.  The obvious inference from that is he's talking about Gerald, but he didn't say it was a done deal.
Title: Re: Dorian Gerald

No, he was talking on the phone in front of the crowd about the playmaker he's got on the phone "that will make 17, that will hopefully make 17 tomorrow."

It seems he recruits with swagger, from the small glimpse he gave the crowd last night. Spoke confidently with the young man and, with him on the phone, talked about adding him to our signee list the next day.

But there was probably little point in getting him on the phone in front of the crowd to call the hogs on speakerphone if he was a done deal. It was orchestrated to show the kid love & give him some exposure in front of a live crowd; I'm sure Gerald ate it up.

A couple more picks to A&M, but Shurburtt and Kirk still predict to us. It looks like UF probably really is out of the picture because A&M is just gaining UF's predictions. They just keep dropping in prediction percentage. My hope is this is the end of the recruiting cycle and guys are making their final pick that to the best of the UF predictors knowledge it's not gonna be UF so they are going with their next best guesses which are going to A&M.


I would say the young man played the experts like a fiddle...........

Notice the hat is not a $5 special from J-Mart. That cookie reminds me of an old joke. Something about a guy's wife told him something dirty a shoe salesman told her as she was trying on a pair of shoes in a mini-skirt with him on his knee assisting.

She asked what he was going to do to the guy and he thought a second and replied: I'm not messin' with any guy who can eat that much ice cream... Just substitute cookie ;)

Seriously, this guy is a stud AND he plays with a chip on his shoulder due to not being recruited out of HS. He arrives at the ball in a bad mood, whether it's run or pass. He has a knack for the strip sack also.

Often times, Otis won't change his prediction, even when he knows that Arkansas is out of it.  I'm sure he lets his subscribers know, though.

The more telling thing here is that JC Shurburtt changed his prediction to A&M.  Whenever he picks Arkansas, we always lose.

Some of them are actually claiming we paid to get him.... lmao

not really. it's just the average ranking, not necessarily the most accurate. a lot of times the one that calls a tweener 3-4* as a 4* ends up being the most correct. Ive even seen players that were 4*s on 3 sites yet were a 3* composite. Happened to one of our recruits last year. The composite said 3*, yet, literally NONE of the sites had him a 3*. he was a 2* on one and 4* on the other three. Can't remember who it was as he ended up elsewhere. Maybe Chris Daniels. Idr. At any rate, it just ups the pool to almost everyone is a 3* average. Like 80% of D-1 prospects are 3* composite. It doesnt tell enough of the story imo.
