C Michael Stewart and QB DaMarcus Smith

 

I understand that DaMarcus is going to attend prep school and then return to UL in January.

 

It was further confirmed that while recruiting DaMarcus, the UCF staff had told DaMarcus that Jeff Godfrey, the very successful starting QB, was going to move to WR.  In another post, it was reported that when DaMarcus spoke to Godfrey about the position change, Godfrey denied the move.

GREAT report Lakinit!

 

You keep amazing me at every turn!

A source very close to DaMarcus stated that they are still waiting on the NCAA, and Smith is NOT going to UCF regardless and coming to Louisville!!!

 

Either way, DaMarcus is going to end up where he wanted to be all along at THE VILLE!

You all are the gurus of recruiting, how often does this situation happen where a coach promises an open position and after signing day they change the story?

Kid has a lot of fans to get back...including me hope his drama is over.

@Mark:

 

O' Leary, the HC of UCF football, lied to Notre Dame when they were thinking about hiring him, so lying is nothing new for O' Leary.  Par for the course.  Check THIS out.......  O' Leary is a straight-up joke.

I just did NOT want DaMarcus going to UCF with O' Leary.

I would like to see DaMarcus come to U of L.  It bothers me that a coach can use a bait and switch tactic to a potential recruit --- that is only 18 years old, for goodness sakes.  I was in professional sales all my life and if my boss received calls about that type of behavior by me, I would have been in some major trouble. 

 

I have to turn this back onto the NCAA.  They need to start looking at situations like this that are --- JUST WRONG!  Fabricating situations to recruits is --- JUST WRONG!

So if he starts school at UofL how many years will he have to play?
Comment by Lakinit on April 23, 2011 at 12:07am

Good question.  I will pursue a responce.  (no, GREAT question!)

Comment by Jeff Taylor on April 23, 2011 at 12:18am
Welcome aboard, DaMarcus.  5 years to play 4.
Comment by Terry Jackson on April 23, 2011 at 12:20am
If he starts UL without a release he has 4 to play 3 after sitting out a year. If he goes prep route he has 5 to play 4.
