He should get his own thread, which I’ll do.

Roderic Lewis- 3 star commit just de-committed due to an “issue within the program.” Not sure what this means exactly but we could potentially be seeing a coach exit or something. I have no idea

Check out his tweet: https://twitter.com/rj_nobuckets23/stat ... 84512?s=21

That could be anything, right? Full class, coach leaving, recruited over

Well that's not exactly great publicity.

Could also be a way of saying "after watching Navy and Houston, I'm not so convinced Tulane is a team on the rise like I was sold by the staff".

It doesn't reflect that great on the kid. Decommit and move on, don't hint at something that "made you do it."

Funny in trying to give an excuse so he didn't look like the typical teenager who changes his mind, he looks even worse

I think it might be this. The staff is realizing they need stronger players on the defensive side. No offense to this kid, but he wasn't recruited by AAC or better schools. Tulane needs to try and start recruiting like SMU and Cincinnati, not like USM or LA Tech. This guy belongs in the Sun Belt, not the AAC.

The way we have played year to date certainly raises questions, especially our style of play. I hope we throw 50 times tomorrow and we give the secondary some help. We are a veteran team that is not playing like a veteran team. Let’s hope tomorrow is a changing point in the season.
