Re: 2019 5 star DL Ismael Sopsher

He's going to school with his JuCo brother no matter what...Like I said in another thread...

Good Luck wherever you land. We'll win with you, and we'll win without you. But we sure as heck aren't taking your demands to bring on your JuCo brother.

***LSU has offered both he and his brother, and most SEC schools are right behind with that offer as well...
Link is broken, what happened?

So if this kid is saying he will play with his brother, and LSU is the only school that has offered then we can pretty much draw a conclusion he will be wearing purple and gold next season.

Well, I would assume it would come down to full ride vs. preferred walk on. If LSU offered the brother a full scholarship, the staff will have to decide if IS is worth matching that. I`d say, though, that the chances he`s in crimson went WAY down. That`s provided, of course, that it`s not a bluff.

Doesn't appear so...This is what I put up a little while ago.

I'm trying to figure out how his brother factors into him coming to Alabama here. Is the brother real good?

Re: 2019 5 star DL Ismael Sopsher

yall need to stop he's trying to get his brother a scholarship. Bama leads.
So, when he says that Alabama does not lead (and he just said that), it is just him trying to get his brother a scholly at Alabama?

Re: 2019 5 star DL Ismael Sopsher

bama isn't going to offer his brother a scholarship maybe pwo. He's doing what a lot of athletes are doing trying to get family or friends a scholarship. Look at UF with sanders brother etc. Allen was different because his brother was eh back in the day. Cal deemed him worth it. Ish wont sign until feb nor announce, why because if someone sends his brother papers they are on the hook.

Re: 2019 5 star DL Ismael Sopsher

JMO, but if a team sets aside 2 spots for him and he chooses to go elsewhere, they not only lose him, but they might also lose another really good recruit that you slow-played. Playing this game with a recruit is too risky.

He does not have to sign with you, no matter how much he promises that he will.

Re: 2019 5 star DL Ismael Sopsher

Oh well, if its a package deal then I think he goes to LSU. I don't like it when recruits start putting contingency riders on their recruitment.

I don't think that his brother will get an offer from Bama, especially with the others that seem to be in line in this class. Numbers seem too tight to basically give one away. Time to find the next Q, and he's probably not it.

Re: 2019 5 star DL Ismael Sopsher

Right, so we are split in how we've handled it.

but with Dareus, there was no real risk in him taking up a spot since we knew he would not be able to enroll. If this kid has done his juco time then he'd be likely to be able to enroll and consume a spot. As mush as I'd like little bro on campus, I'm not sure he'd be worth two schollys.

He said he will not go to a school unless his brother is coming to the same school. I think Texas A&M will offer his brother and he has talked about how beautiful the campus was. Who knows where he will go?
