    I am following the Gee Scott recruitment, & Washington & ND are the two schools recruiting him the hardest. From his own account, ND talks to him the most.
    He is the 54th overall player in the country (Composite 97.53) and lives 20 minutes from UW’s campus.
    He said he talks every week with ND 2020 QB commit Drew Pyne. Also his father is from Chicago & played college ball in Indiana.
    I think this will be a ND/UW battle, but I’m a little surprised that UW isn’t giving him more attention? ND is all over him.

    my uninformed guess? in the gee scott jr recruitment?

    here it is:

    petersen and uw probably think quite highly of gee jr but there are some things that hold the recruitment back.

    - gee sr has been vocal in past but lately he's been relatively quiet (that's good). petersen is a total program control freak. he really doesn't like or tolerate much any external sources grabbing control or influence unless it's unavoidable (see tracy ford etc ...)
    - unless it's someone like kalepo who is worth the extra rope to allow him to recruit for uw. big nate is more important for recruiting efforts than many realize outside of HH .... and so petersen allows kalepo to do stuff like visit USC and talk like he's still enjoying the process. when UW approaches recruiting in all positions like we have for the secondary you'll probably see alot less rope given.
    - evidence has been seen of petersen trying to maintain bridges with the local talent programs. how good he's doing is still up for debate.
    - we don't really know how much attention or "fucking" is happening unless you are at petersen's office with the assistant coaches ... and ruth doesn't count.
    - because of all the factors involved ...we're seeing alot more "slow playing" of hands for local athletes than it would seem for some 3* dude from buttfuck nowhere or some 3* dude from a recruiting stronghold elsewhere. even though people complain bitterly that we aren't attempting to lock up local high end athletes immediately and allowing external schools like alabama and clemson get a foothold ...
    - petersen is actually cognizant of his benefit/cost ratio of recruiting to a degree. that's why he offered and took the commitment of gaard memmelaar because he was probably comfortable that this kid wasn't going to get all starry eyed with the recruiting process and shit and represented a likely low chance to flip despite being a 2020 kid. Resources can be spent elsewhere and little resources for maintenance (unlike whatshisname the receiver). also, petersen was probably pretty scarred and learned alot about big boy recruiting from the marlon situation which spills over further into his recruiting philosphy.

    fuck, i'm starting to sound like tequilla ... anyways, some random thoughts thrown out there.

    in the end, scott jr is being slow(er) played because of many reasons, justified or not.

    I’m guessing since he is a 2020 kid & 20 minutes away they can take their time, unlike ND who needs to get in early.
    If UW decided they want to visit him now, they can just hop in their car & go to his house for dinner. ND has to plan it out a month in advance.
    Also interesting is he & his dad flew out last season to see ND play Miami of Ohio (Miami of Ohio? LOL) as fans. It wasn’t a visit, just wanted to go to a ND home game.
    He did mention he is wants to make a decision but is waiting to have more communication with other teams before he decides anything.

    There have also been some rumors of a poor attitude by JR that could also be playing a factor. I think specifically it’s been alleged that he yelled at a coach for taking him out of a game. I have no idea if that is true or not but we all know Petersen hates shit like that so it’s been speculated that could be playing a role in his recruitment. The ol’ waiting for him to mature bullshit.

    I think what we do know about Petersen is that he has no problem passing on talent if they don't fit his okg shit. Although he's certainly made concessions in the past it seems.

    He has more leverage now at UW (or so he thinks) so I can see him waiting Scott Jr out. But many here at HH think he's playing a dangerous game with all the talent coming up in the next few years. Whatever, trust the coaches as DDY says.
