We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
From Poggi himself? Or a "source"?
I trust the actual recruit. And he literally just said about 45 minutes ago it's bs.
It's hard to believe CP would lie about it, maybe he just got some bad info or Poggi doesn't want his scholly pulled just because he takes a visit..
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
I don't know what's going on with him, But I've followed recruiting for more that a decade and he would not be the first to lie about it. Luther Davis said he was not going to Bama either for an OV so his ship would not be pulled and he showed up. They found out and he ended up at Bama. All I know is, Tim knows his stuff and has owned BOL forever. He's not lying. We will see what happens. Maybe they let the cat out of the bag and they were not supposed to.
I don't doubt he is lying, but there is a difference between lying and being wrong. He's wrong IMO.

Well I guess we will all know on the 11th. He very well might have planned on sneaking in the visit and won't now that it's been made public.
Honestly, both sides have reason to be optimistic and pessimistic. They have rock-solid sources saying a visit will happen. Rock solid sources are reliable but can be wrong. We have Poggi denying it. That should be reliable but recruits often lie.
Nothing to do now but just wait and see what happens.
It appears some Jimmies have been rustled in this thread.
People going full rainman mode if they thing Wiltfong posted anything based off an insider. No one said Poggi is switching. He just contacted about taking an OV. The odd part is that Michigan has decommitted other guys for doing so. If they would do that to him, it would make one think a minute.
Could be that word has gone down that Bama is out for Tunsil and it seems more appealing for Poggi to possible play at an elite program sooner than it seemed possible before.
Who knows, but no staff members are quoting message board insiders as sources I can assure you.
FWIW, I remember a lot of Michigan fans that thought Dee Hart was a lock as well.
Locks come with signatures and nothing more.
This is what Tim Watts posted on BOL. He's not a rumor starter. I'm sure others will disagree with that, but he's just not.
On Poggi he has made plans to take an official visit to Alabama. The source we have on this is as close as it gets to Poggi. Also heard it from the other side.
On a side note David Dawson was the commitment Reggie Ragland and DeMarcus Walker tweeted about that night. He called several UA commitments and told them he was committing to UA. However UA had Hill back in the fold and passed.
We will see how it plays out but 100% for sure Poggi had made plans to officially visit Tuscaloosa on January 11th. Charles spoke to the source today with 2 witnesses with him.
We will leave it at that. And its January and recruiting. Lot of odds things happen this time of the year.
...isn't Tunsil an OT? And Poggi a DT?
You are correct. Meant Walker, not Tunsil.
Well we have the kid himself denying it, and the father saying he doesn't know where people get this stuff from. Then we have "the source".
It sounds like Michigan fans are making an issue out of something that no Bama on this board is. The OP asked a question and we posted what we are hearing from our staff. There is not one Bama fan ITT saying that we know one way or the other. You asked where we were getting it from and we posted what we knew.
Has anyone ITT said that we expect him to commit to Bama? We will know on the 11th which staff is right about the visit. No reason to bitch about it at this point. If you have an issue with it, go bitch to our staff members who posted that he was visiting. None of us have spoken to him or his family.

True, but it's a lot easier to feel this way when you weren't on the receiving end of the on-field raping this season.
I don't see what our game has to do with this at all.
I have no issue with Bama fans. Just saying it's pretty easy to say whatever you want to when you don't have to reveal where you're getting it from.
I'll choose to believe the kid himself, although it certainly wouldn't be the first time somebody lied if it ends up happening.
Ah, recruiting shenanigans. Gotta love it. Thanks Bama fans for giving us Michigan fans some insight on what y'all heard went down. I hope Poggi stays committed to Michigan(obviously). Kid's talented.
What you eat, don't make me shit.
Our staff might have helped you out by posting this information. If Hoke really pulls schollie offers for visiting other schools, they might have killed the visit before it ever happened, it it was even in the works. He may have wanted to sneak in a visit, and if he was, the discretion is gone now.
UM people naturally are going to get more worked up over one recruit IMO. UA is on top of college football and doesn't appear to be changing any time soon. Labor Day weekend is just a nice little avatar.
This is an idiotic post.
Interesting turn of events.
Why is this an issue. I wouldn't mind any of Bama's recruits taking a visit somewhere else.
Some players want to be and play for the best. Some don't. Either way, I'd like to know now than before his Junior year.
Don't know what's going on, but kids always deny these things at first. It's recruiting season don't believe everything they say.
