    Why didn't he sign during the early signing period?

    Because they didn't send him the papers.

    Sounds like they sent him on a wild goose chase.

    He is being recruited by UCF. Randy Shannon paid him a visit, and he has a visit set up. Maybe a better fit for him?

    The Goose is cooked.

    Actually feel a little bad for him. He's is scramble mode now, but this is a business and he took his chances.

    I’d take him back in a heartbeat. Georgia loaded up on big guys and had less room for the athletes. He is still amazingly good.

    Cooked? His recruiter at Rutgers is Baker.
    Maybe he learned a valuable lesson. A goose in the hand is worth two in the bush?

    I have ZERO problem taking him back right now. He ditched us for Georgia. Runner-up for the national title. I'm good with that!

    Seriously? People feel sorry for him? Like, not.

    I'm sure Rhode Island or Delaware might be looking for CB's. Or maybe Monmouth.

    I, for one, don't feel "sorry" for him but I'd still take him.

    The lingo that coaches use in this era to describe this:

    "He got processed out".

    He's not that good, certainly not enough to trump our need for DLs. Now, if he wants to walk on ...

    Hey DJ,If he ends up at Monmouth at least you will get to see him in 2021 when we play them on a Thursday night game in November at Yankee Stadium. I know how much you are looking forward to that game.

    So, Al, for the record, you don't like the 10 DBs we recruited the last 2 years? Before the 2018 season starts, you will be claiming that they are all Devin McCourty.

    I like them. But They're a notch below Rachad Wildgoose.

    Tough crowd here. I feel bad for any 18 year old that gets chewed up by this recruiting process. It’s not like he strung RU along for months. As soon as his recruitment unexpectedly blew up he decommitted.

    This kid doesn't upset me like he does others. He was never a dick to Rutgers and had kept his commitment to Ga for a long time. But it should serve as a word of warning to some players about the SEC. No doubt this kid will land somewhere and most likely have a good career. I almost feel as if I may actually cheer for this kid if he does not end up in the B1G.

    Exactly. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Pass. Besides, NJ has enough wild geese, and they sh!t all over the place.

    I can confidently say that there is no other board on the Rivals network where the fans worry so much about what happens to recruits who commit to their school and then decide not to sign.

    This x2. I’d take him back in a heartbeat. I’ll take what he did all day over what McDonald pulled.

    I don't get why any Rutgers fan would feel sorry for this kid.

    In April, he "committed" to Rutgers. One month later, after other P5 offers started rolling in, he stated that he was "still committed" to Rutgers. Which was clearly a bold faced lie since 1 week later, he de-committed.

    So, basically, he jerked Chris Ash around and played Rutgers. I feel sorry for Coach Ash because he, and all coaches, have to try and fill out a recruiting class while dealing with kids saying they're committed while they are, in fact, simply stringing the coach along until they get an offer they consider better.

    I know Wildgoose was only committed for about 1 month but it still bugs me when kids say they're committed and can't wait to play for so-and-so school when in fact they're just using that school as a safety net.

    All that being said, I'd still take him back in a heartbeat. I'd hate myself in the morning ... but I'd still do it.
