Title: Emmit Gooden?
Post by: wps11 on February 06, 2018, 10:52:50 am
I know he has posted about Hogs being in Top 3 of his choices, but haven't heard anything about us trying to get him. Just wondering what's up there... he's a 4*

Really? A 4 star? I hadn't heard.

Just kidding. I think he is not yet eligible for SEC and is probably going to WV.

Makes sense to put SEC schools in your top 3 and not even be eligible for them. Thanks for the info.

My source is HV, so I don't know any more than anyone else. But what I heard is that he is 1 class shy of being eligible in the SEC, but not for B12. I understand he at one time really wanted to be here, so who knows. Maybe he can take the class and get it done, like, was it Martin last year?

Dudley said on Boís show that he would not have an Arkansas LOI to sign.
I heard him say that as well.  Then he kind of backtracked... the he kind of leaned that way again.  confusing.  It's so weird though, that Gooden would come out with a top3 , and apparently he isn't qualified to get into 2 of the schools in his top3  which is Tenner and Us.  So that only leaves WV.  Which, that's where I hope he ends up since he wont be a Hog it would appear.  Sucks, because he was going to be a good one I believe.  But, then again, do we sacrifice 'right now'  for a kid we'd have 4 years?  Who knows, perhaps if he had qualified, and graduated early, he might of been a Hog, cuz according to Dawson, Who I like to call Boooger, because 'Dudley dawson' was the same name of the character nicknamed Booger from the revenge of the nerds movie. =-)      but, yes, according to Booger, the former staff called Gooden from the Golf course and had told him they weren't gonna have a scholarship for him when he didn't graduate early.  Then, later for some reason, they called him back and said yeah they would.  So, that part is just weird.

Apparently it is also Chavis who doesn't really want Gooden as well.   From hearing booger, he also mentioned that the WR from OU who decommitted probably would have been a razorback but he appears to be having to go to a Juco.  Perhaps after he is done there we'll revisit him.  He  didn't mention Parker though, who many think may end up at Texas... he didn't say anything about him going there.  which was a good sign perhaps?    we'll find out tomorrow.  seems like he liked our changes of getting Gerald though.. that would be awesome

They wonít be giving Gooden a Scholarship unless our other 2 Dline options turn us down. Because of the risk he wonít qualify and the need for speed DEís

Right, and I assume Agim is referring to Gerald leading us on.  I don't know who the 2nd DL recruit is.

Tennessee.  I guess he did qualify.  I'm sure there are reasons this coaching staff decided to go a different direction.  At this point all we can do is wait and see how this program builds.

Today is a good start.

That's what I'm thinking.  His 247 page shows that he committed to Tennessee today, rather than signed.

Post by: SooieGeneris on February 07, 2018, 03:08:16 pm
He may not be qualified YET and TN is taking a chance he will. There has to be a reason that other SEC schools like UF backed off as well. D Linemen with his ability aren't on every street corner..

He committed to Tenner out of HS before going to JC, so it's probably the best fit for him, going full circle.

Both schools had room to take a chance on him. Surprised UA wouldn't take the chance. My guess is they were willing.

I'd think any negatives toward him stem from wanting him out of the sec if he's not at arkansas.  It's not a knock on him as a player or person

Evidently this new staff wouldn't take the chance.  Word broke yesterday that he wouldn't have a letter from arkansas to sign.  Goodens tweets over months of recruiting made it clear that he wanted to play alongside Agim

I agree we don't need to knock him if Arkansas didn't want to take the risk (of him not qualifying) but at the same time he shouldn't take shots at Arkansas!!!

He would have been a Hog, but the new staff did NOT send him a NLI to sign.  When we took ferrel from within our own state, we didnt have q scholarship for Gooden. We still have 1 left for Gerald, but if he doesnt sign, then we may save it until next season, or give it to a walkon. Or perhaps even to the signing day leftiver that usually happens that just so happens to be a 3 or 4*

I wish he was a Hog. Think he would have been great.  BUt it is what it is.  If we had more scholarships Gooden probably a hog. And if we had a full alotment of scholarships, wed have a top20 class too!  Oh well, onto next years class now!

Ok fine, the new staff didn't offer. Why didn't they? Did they fill every slot and not want to waste a spot? You can't save #'s for next season any more. If they didn't offer the question should be is "why the hell not"?  They had absolutely NOTHING to lose. If he signs but can't make the grade then you're in the exact same spot you're in now...

It's not us saying that we didn't want him. We the fans wanted him badly, but for some reason(I don't pretend to know why)the new staff didn't want him. Agim , who is one of his best friends said himself that Gooden didn't have an offer from us anymore. We have to trust staff at this point.

Chavis didn't want him, simple as that. He wanted speed rushing DE's, we didn't get all we wanted there, but he wasn't going to take a DT he didn't want. They didn't offer Noah Jefferson either, I guess they have a plan?

Actually looks like a late qualifier from JuCo.  My guess is we didn't want to risk him not making it and wasting a scholarship.

I can tell you that Chavis didn't want him, I can't make you believe it. The previous staff pulled his offer in Nov once they found out he wasn't eligible to enroll in Jan, they did offer him again a couple of days later. Morris never offered him in the advice of Chavis, believe what you wish.
