4-star OT Courtland Ford decommits fro mLSU
LINK /

Unfortunately had bilateral knee surgery and hasn't looked to have recovered from it well, mutual parting of ways here, probably wont land at a big school I would imagine. Sucks for the kid. Has gained a lot of weight too.

Looks like we are going very hard after Ark commit Ty Crawford now, he had the best showing of anyone at our OL/DL camp recently. Also heavily recruiting Dumervil from FL.

That sucks for the kid. Would've loved him but after his injuries, it's just not a take anymore. Hopefully he can recover well.

He and some lucky school will take advantage of a redshirt and go through rehab.

Hopefully it's this simple. I feel for the kid.

Hopefully he ends up at a place that he can succeed. Hate seeing injuries like this.

Apparently he got an official offer from Oregon. I am not worried about weight cause we seem to do well getting bad weight off. Likewise, there’s good rehab facilities here. Is this LSU saying we can’t take any risk? Are they not sure if 100% recovery will happen?

Don't schools usually honor scholarships after injury? I thought that's one of the big selling points of committing early

Obviously they give strong suggestions.

re: 4-star OT Courtland Ford decommits fro mLSU
Kinda depends on timing, severity, etc... It's not cut and dried anywhere... If the alternative was to leave him hanging out to dry, they'd likely try to find a way to honor it, but if they make some calls they'll get him a minimum of one committable offer somewhere... As bison mentioned, Oregon could try to grab him, and they won't be the only one... It's not necessarily in a kid's best interest to go to a school with super high talent levels of rehab is gonna be a bitch... Too easy to get lost in the shuffle.

Believe they are his knees.

Ford still has open scholarship offers from a few schools
I believe USC is one.

Not like no one wants him.


He was just an early bloomer. Usually those players who mature faster look like future All Americans their Sophomore year in high school.

Well then you know he has a spot at UNC. Mack loves those guys.

He’s tweeted our officials for Tulsa, Okie State and Oregon. Of the 19 verbal offfers, those are three he’s tweeted. Not sure why he’d omit the others.

Which of those are relevant to SEC recruiting?

Try reading my post again. If you need some help understanding it you can screenshot it and text it to a friend.

You seemed to be saying that it wasn’t SEC related. Did I get that part right?

Tool sure does seem accurate...

4-star OT Courtland Ford decommits from LSU

Seems SEC related enough... regardless of where he decides to go next. Assuming you don't take issue with that, then the natural follow up would be to mention schools where he decides to visit, whether they're SEC schools or not.

Perhaps you have trouble following simple logical conclusions though.

If y’all are willing to let him get his knees right and rehab him for next season he could end up being a very good player! Hope he ends up at Oregon tho would be a perfect fit and your facilities would do wonders for his rehab

My dude Aaron Feld can get him right...

Feld has been awesome.

That is the biggest difference I’ve seen with Cristobal. We went from one S&C Coach that cross trained other sports to 3 full time members and two GAs.

Also, we’ve had a handful of OL come in at 380-400 and drop down to good weights. Jordon Scott is another at DL.

I just wonder if they injury means he will never be the same.
