    I am admittedly ignorant to the difference in our admission standards, but, if he could not get into UNC I'm inclined to believe he's going to struggle to get into Syracuse.

    I'm not sure what the reason is for his release. He was committed to Miami before Golden got canned. Maybe he jumped to UNC too quickly. Plus I see from his twitter his Dad died. :noidea:

    Maybe he's better at real classes than fake ones? :p

    Looks like he had some good offers, and Bowling Green was recruiting him previously so he must be familiar with the coaches.

    One of the links says he was denied admission to UNC so he is a late free agent.

    At 6'2 175, he would give us some badly needed size at safety.

    Runs really well. Might crack the two deep as a true frosh.

Pierre was denied admissions by UNC. As a senior, Pierre had 48 tackles, four interceptions and two pass deflections.

    I did see that UNC had a class of 26 with Pierre. Did they over recruit and want him to gray shirt?

    as a 3 star 5.7 he'd be one of the highest rated kids in the class (whatever that's worth) at a position of need.

    reportedly had offers from Miami, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisville, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wisconsin among others.

    sign him up

    Basically can't let him leave the visit without committing. Have to close when he is up here. Agree, position of need, with the size and talent to be a difference maker. Definitely a fortunate situation for us if it happens.

    These are the types of guys and types of situations that a program like Syracuse needs to take advantage of.

    We need to jumpstart things and catch a few breaks along the way...

    Not saying this kid is going to assuredly be a star for us. But his offer list and size suggest he could be.

    Love the approach the staff is taking, not leaving a stone unturned.

    I don't know if UNC is different for athletes, but it's VERY hard to get into places like UNC, UVA, and UT-Austin as an out of state student. The elite places hold something like 80% of class places for in-state residents.

    6'2 safeties don't fall off trees.

    Lock him up! Good recruiting area too.
