    Everything that I have read says UGA.

    Is this like everything about Gilbert was saying Bama?
    This is the darkest timeline.

    So what happens next? Will Saban continue to try and flip him?

    I bet he will.... are there any other TE out there besides him and Washington to look at?

    It just goes to show you that many recruits like the games and attention......wonder what kind of tales Yaw Yaw spun him?

    Either the player lies to multiple people, or he made a last minute switch.

    Pretty clear what it was in this case.

    Re: 5* TE Arik Gilbert

    I don't know how to link the article right now, but there is a good article on Arik Gilbert on today's ESPN.com. It basically said he did not tell his parents or anyone but he knew about a month ago (I assume when he took his visit Oct 5) that he was going to LSU. He said knew the media was saying UGA or Bama and he just played along with that and tried to keep his decision to himself all these weeks.

    I would still like to know if Saban had an idea of that over the past few weeks, or if Gilbert outright lied to Saban and said he was coming to Bama.

    With LSU's new offense, Joe Brady, the atmosphere, etc, unfortunately I can see this happening more often for LSU. They have always had the talent on D.

    Each year it will still be Bama, LSU, and Auburn in contention for the West, but it looks to be much more difficult these days.

    Seems lately that many times recruits like the whole shock value thing......... Id rather them be honest rather than string someone along

    Can you say bag of cash? Something going on down south and it stinks bad. Starting to smell like Ole Miss a few years ago. Who in the heck would want to go down there? Apparently lots of great players that aren't from the bayou... hmmm

    In his interview after announcing he said that he told no one, and purposely let people believe that he was going to their schools. He said that he made up his mind over a month ago. IMO, as long as he didn't lie to Saban or the other coaching staffs, he can play that type of game with the fans. Really, it is only us nut jobs who follow this stuff year long who even notice. But if he lied to the coaches and told them that he was coming when he knew otherwise, that isn't cool and shows that you are better off without him.

    Still don't know why he wouldn't tell his parents. I cannot imagine having that kind of relationship, or lack thereof, with my boys.
