The fact that they’re both announcing on the day just seems like too much of a coincidence for them not to be connected somehow...which means they’re probably not connected at all and I’m just looking way too much into the psychology of teenagers.

This was the report from Frank's show "He also said that they are hoping to get an answer from Kern around Oct. 1 as well."

That is a far distance from it being "a fact" that they are both announcing on the same day. It's weird how stuff like that get's twisted, especially when Frank himself is just reporting a rumor and the "hope" of the Billikens staff.

Kern has a countdown on Instagram.  That is why people are assuming he will announce when the countdown ends.

The Memphis writer from The Athletic wrote about Nesbitt's recruitment today and broke down each team's chances after interviewing the coach at St. Louis Christian Academy. Apparently Nesbitt's coach doesn't view SLU as the favorite...

Saint Louis
With any given talented player from Memphis, you’d be on the right side of history to assume that kid would end up at the U of M. The dynamics seem to be a bit different in Nesbitt’s case as it relates to the city of St. Louis. The Billikens haven’t exactly been there from Day 1, offering the 6-6 guard just last summer, according to Autenrieth. Each Crystal Ball prediction at 247Sports has Nesbitt ending up at Saint Louis; Autenrieth pushed back on that this week.

“He’s not super concerned with (the hometown angle),” Autenrieth said. “I see that being broadcast all over, but that’s not really coming from our camp. He’s not really concerned about them being a favorite just because they’re the hometown school. Saint Louis has done a great job. They’ve done a pretty good job of resurrecting the program. Jordan’s been to some games there, and they’ve been building a relationship. But as far as (them) being a favorite, I wouldn’t say that.”

That's what you're supposed to say to the Memphis beat writer.

Exactly. I don’t think anyone really knows what’s gonna happen next week. I want Jordan Nesbitt to be a Billiken as much as anyone. I really really do! But if there’s 1 thing we know, it’s that coach Ford is gonna find talent here at SLU. Hopefully, that includes Nesbitt. But if it doesn’t, there’s no doubt in my mind, our staff will find someone else.  That being said, I still really hope Nesbitt chooses SLU next Thursday.

gotta believe jordan does not want to wear orange.   horrible guady color.   that alone knocks them out.   

next, you got the the memphis fight song that sounds like a rip off of "old gray mare".   memphis plays over and over and over as a player that would drive me crazy to listen to that for 2 hours.  

no way we arent the favorite.

Box and Skip have upgraded their operation.  I've confident that they've done all they can.

When Box and I were in business together, we closed recruits. Sad!

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.

Sources? Anybody can make BS accusations about anybody, but you better at least have a shred of evidence to back it up, otherwise it’s just desperate and sad.

P.S. when a new member shows up and their very first post is about SLU paying recruits, using the pronoun “we” isn’t as clever of a disguise as you think it is. 🤦🏻

From The Athletic:

Nesbitt's HS coach: "He's not super concerned with the hometown angle. ... They've done a 'pretty good job' of recruiting the program. Jordan's been to some games there, and they've been building a relationship. But as far as (SLU) being a favorite, I wouldn't say that."

Not exactly encouraging.

I'm actually a SLU alum, got my Masters there. Wife is an alum as well for both undergrad and masters. I follow a lot of Midwestern basketball recruiting. You are asking for "proof" of the recruitments of Gordon and Goodwin being dirty, but I think if Nesbitt goes to Illinois or Memphis you will be quite comfortable saying it was dirty without any such proof.
