Unsure if the premium interview with EE's father will assuage any of the ledge walkers, but I'm all for him taking visits. I'd rather it be earlier in the process and prior to a verbal. I have a hard time deciding where to eat lunch on most days, can't imagine the pressure of a 4 yr commitment...(marriage aside).
I'd rather he be certain of his choice versus coming to school and finding himself homesick or feeling like a square peg in the round hole. See O'Connor's quandary.
I read some of the notes on the FR following his dad's interview. Sounds like they've unofficially visited Missouri a bunch of times prior to this visit, which shouldn't be a surprise considering his folks are both alums.
Unless there's something going on behind the scenes that has him concerned about his role on the team or he feels Urban's reneged on his pledge not to recruit any more RBs in this class (Dontre Wilson?), hopefully he'll stick with the team he's been committed to for nine months and not be swayed by his parents alma mater two weeks prior to NSD.
All we can do is cross our fingers and hope.
Actually I am also a physician and I can not say that I am ready to advise some one to sell insurance in preference to a career in medicine yet, however I didn't go to school in the era of crushing debt and that could change the playing field. My first quarter tuition at OSU medical school was $375 although by the time I graduated it had risen to something on the order of $780.
Holy sh*t bats Trootwood! When was that? Were you still using leeches and Trepanation!?
Kidding aside, I should be so lucky.

This is nothing more than a last minute reach.
They aren't going to come in and scoop up Elliot in 2 weeks time before signing day. Elliot is all buckeye. Mark my words.

I still make good money. But with the debt, and how long it takes...ugh. It is not an easy way to get rich, I will tell you that.
My first semester in medical school cost me about $10k...and that was without room and board. And that was about 15 years ago.
Hope I didn't offend....I have a couple friends in both professions and the Doctors have been less and less happy with the way the healthcare industry is going, the cost of their malpractice insurances and the cuts they've had to endure. Meanwhile my insurance buddies are playing golf 4 days a week, raking it in....
I'm not making a blanket statement, so again, hope I didn't offend...
It makes me wonder how much of Jordan Hall being granted his 20th year of eligibility is making he and his parents think more. Obviously, mom & dad want to see him stay closer to home and Mizzu is their school as well. He may have felt that with so many ahead of him (Hyde, Hall, Smith, Dunn, Ball) he's go no chance at all to compete for a starting job as a freshman. My guess is that Mizzu is telling he and his folks "he da man!" Hope he stays, but if not, good luck playing at a 3rd tier $EC school. Now a days, it's all about PT as a freshman. They don't come in thinking 4 or 5 years, or winning a job anymore. If he (or anyone else) goes, UFM gets another schollie to use.
but we knew for a while that hall was going to redshirt. he just needed the ncaa to approve it. i can't believe that keeping a senior on for a 5th year would be the reason elliott might be having second thoughts.
Highly agree, however with Urban its always the best player plays no matter what. Dunn and Ball do not fit his system as well as Zeke. I think we could see Hyde and Zeke as a certain USC team of Thunder and lightning(White/Bush) I think they would complement each other well with Braxton running the read option/spread. This could be a very scary offense.
It probably isn't easy. How the heck do you get any doctorin' done being on Bucknuts all day?
Plus, we have not had a cheerleader with tits for about 20 years!! WTF!!
