Tennessee Commit Asked To Leave Visit To Auburn After Showing Up In Vols Gear And Attempting To Recruit Their Players
SB Nation- The rumors out of Auburn were that Williams was "being a distraction" and "disrupting the weekend," but we are hearing that Williams was actually asked to leave by Auburn staff members because he showed up wearing nothing but Tennessee apparel and was actively recruiting other visitors to join him at Tennessee.
Couldn't possibly love this move more. How often do universities take advantage of college athletes? How often do recruits gets offers pulled, or end up getting promised more than they actually receive? Hell, the entire process of recruiting is based on glorifying your school and campus. To say that the truth is a requirement of recruitment is like saying that a solid education is a requirement to a successful NFL career. So, what do you do when you are offered a trip to sell you on the benefits of a university, even after you have committed to a conference rival? You go and try to purge them of all their talent. Maybe not the best idea to show up dressed in Volunteer orange. A move that outrageous, that lacks any ounce of subtlety whatsoever, will get you sent packing before the trip has reached it's conclusion. Not the best way to leave town with a couple of 4 or 5 stars following your lead, but it certainly shows his dedication to his team.
I wonder what kind of looks he got walking around campus. As someone that attended many games dressed in my team's colors in enemy territory, I know it can be difficult to hold your tongue. Generally I try to keep walking and not engage the less than inviting portion of the home fan base. Meanwhile, this kid is walking around enemy territory in bright orange, and trying to pilfer players from right under everyone's nose. Just sneaking around campus with Tennessee pamphlets and Volunteer hats. Eating their food, fucking their women, and propositioning their football players.
True be told, this guy would make a great NBA player. The reason these kids go on all these visits is to have a bunch of people suck their dicks, both literally and metaphorically speaking, and tell them how amazing they are. Regardless if they have any interest in the school or not. It's the same reason Carmelo spent a month traveling to half the arenas in the league only to end up in NBA purgatory. This kid was doing exactly what Dwyane Wade was doing when he premeditated the completion of the Big 3 far before it became a reality. Tampering with other team's players in order to benefit his future team.
What's the difference between this kid trying to recruit kids that have committed to Auburn, and Auburn trying to recruit this kid that has committed to Tennessee? I suppose he didn't have to accept the invitation, but what fun is that? The only downside is you get kicked off campus before the official visit is over, but think about how much respect he just got in his own locker room? Already trying to make the team better without playing a single snap. They should just give him the captaincy upon arrival.
P.S. Would you expect any less from this guy? He is basically a doppleganger of Jamie Foxx in 'Booty Call' with the same deceitful personality. If there is one guy that has the charisma to sneak on campus and steal recruits it is the guy with the twitter name 'PrestonTV'.
