You do realize that we have also gotten players that way. Carte'Are Gordon was a very dirty recruitment. Jordan Goodwin's dad got a nice payday. Ford is a good recruiter, but he's not clean.

I always appreciate the updates to these threads, so I figured I would contribute by putting together a scholarship grid. Let me know if you see any inaccuracies on this initial version.  @Pistol

That page has a nice pic of Jayson T in his Celts uniform. Just tell Jordan he can practice against him if he comes to SLU. Unless Jayson suddenly goes to UI in the off season. Also, he might even bring Mr. Smart along just for the fun of it. 

Smart’s growth as a player and general success/national pub has to be great for Ford’s recruiting. Such an easy sell to point at your NBA lottery pick (granted he was a McDonald’s All-American out of HS) whose entire game/persona is built around effort and hustle. A guy you want your whole team to model themselves after and epitomizes #TeamBlue

Funny, even posters on the Illini board have noted how quiet the Illinois “insiders” have been since Nesbitt the date when he will commit.🤣🤣🤣

Just wait until he commits to SLU.  Then it will be that Nesbitt was a lock for the Illini until SLU cheated.  They are going to be demanding that the NCAA look into what exactly @Box and Won and @slufanskip are up to.
 

So everyone keep your mouth shut 🤐.  Snitches get stitches.

“No sir. That duffel bag filled with money was delivered, as ordered, to Slam Dunkley. We never paid Jordan Nesbitt a penny!”

NCAA comes calling to Box or me and Mark Emmert will find his ass in Salina KS  

Actually Box and me are on the Duke plan. The NCAA's head just won't turn in our direction

We have a very particular set of skills.

Skills that we have acquired over a long career.

Skills that make us a nightmare for people like Illini fans.  And the NCAA.

I am not saying you two had anything to do with the NCAA laying off their staff at this time, but.....

Nesbitt taking next step

This recruitment doesn’t appear to have too much drama, but Jordan Nesbitt is set to take the next step in his decision making process. He is narrowing down his list to three this week, and then he will make his commitment on October 1.

While Nesbit is definitely in the process of narrowing things down, the reality is, he wants to stay close to home, and Saint Louis is the big favorite here to keep him as close to home as possible.

Travis Ford and his staff have done a fantastic job of recruiting Nesbitt, and they are definitely the leader.

Some other schools such as Memphis, Illinois, Iowa State and Alabama are all involved and could make his final three, but it would take a major sea change for Nesbitt to end up anywhere other than Saint. Louis. -- Snow

Is Pit Bull warming up?

Over at the illini board, they sure seem confident.... Sure hope they are wrong...

 

"The staff hasn’t gotten to Piper yet. You think just because Piper says that they are a “text” or a call away that they automatically answer DP every time he texts?
Piper has no clue what’s going on here, his hand is being forced because of the National Snow article. And Snow has no idea either just like he didn’t with Jones up until the last minute 💯
The staff is in a good position here and the Nesbitt’s are keeping things close to the chest, which is good. Things have not changed in a couple weeks, this announcement is only on the heels of one momentum shift... and that’s when the Nesbitt’s made Illinois their leader and decided THAT was the best option. Nothing since then has changed...
The National punditS here just don’t know it yet because everything has been so SLU heavy up to this point."

At this point, there is no they.  There is one Illini poster who doubled down a week ago and is now tripling down to save face.  He spent last week accusing Depaul of money laundering after a recruit he claimed was an Illini lean chose the Blue Demons.

SLU just got a 6th crystal ball prediction for Jordan Nesbitt at 247. 

I'm not sure why I ever thought it was a good idea to look at the Illini board...

Which board are you guys looking at? Would love a little afternoon reading.

This is HILARIOUS! Everybody is wrong except this dipsh—t on the Illini board. The national recruiting experts are clueless. The Illini recruiting expert is “pressured” to say SLU, because the national recruiting experts are clueless, despite the fact that it might cost him a wrong crystal ball prediction and make him lose credibility. The Nesbitt’s are keep everything so close to the chest that only this a-hole on the Illinois board really knows what’s actually going on. Then when Nesbitt picks SLU, here’s what he’s gonna say. “Dude, this is such BS! Chaifetz bought Nesbitt a Bently and his family a mansion in the Hamptons. His high school and AAU coaches were pressuring him to stay home because they each received $50,000 cash. Nesbitt was TOTALLY gonna come to Illinois this whole time, but all the cheating and politics, he changed his mind at the last second...ya know? I’m TOTALLY an insider who TOTALLY has inside info. Nesbitt’s commitment to SLU TOTALLY doesn’t change that. I just wish every other school in division 1, besides Illinois, would fight fair!”
