Just going by what someone who follows KU recruiting very closely has stated. So, I guess ultimately it is one person's opinion, but a person's opinion who is usually right on about KU athletics.
KU isn't going to offer a KSU commit. In fact, MM (and KU Rivals admins) have, in the past, pulled and/or denied offers to KSU commits. I couldn't care less--happens all the time in college athletics. But, just because Rivals says KU didn't offer doesn't mean they didn't or didn't want to. There are two specific cases I know of in the last few years where a player committed to another school and either KU and/or this site changed the database as if there was no offer when, in fact, there was or had been.
I'm not saying that every other Rivals site doens't do this either. Truthfully, I don't know. The only reason I mentioned what I did is because I know if to be fact (family friends w/ the recruit's parents). My point is not to point fingers, but to reiterate that just because Rivals says there is no offer doesn't mean there hasn't been or isn't one on the table.
KU hasn't been on Lamur for months and when they were it wasn't much interest, he can play abit but we've obviously had alot of guys alot higher on our board.
Name these guys that the KU rivals guys pulled listed offers from.
Here is an easy one Todd Reesing, had a KSU offer, a KU poster pointed out on cat chat that Reesing turned down KSU for KU and the next day Reesing's offer KSU offer was gone from the database. So name the players that Kirby apparently pulled the old switcharoo on.
I have no idea nor do I care. We all know that school sites are vying for their fans and that there is opinion inserted in to almost everything that comes out from a Rivals site. I said that happens every where and certainly wasn't excluding KSU. It has happened on this site. I don't doubt it happened with Todd Reesing and GPC.
The only reason I brought it up is to reiterate the point that just because Rivals says so doesn't mean it is.
