Where is the outcry about this:
Tillman, a running back/defensive back for West St. Mary High in Baldwin, La., had said last June, shortly before his senior season, that he would sign with Stanford. He turned down all other recruiting overtures and visited no other schools, his coach, Ryan Antoine says, and the Stanford staff was in frequent contact with him.
Co-defensive coordinator Derek Mason made a home visit as recently as Jan. 16, Antoine says. But four days later, Antoine says Tillman got a phone call from Stanford, telling him he would not be accepted. With signing day then less than two weeks away, the coach and player were stunned and confused.
I am not saying this is right. But would be nice to get some perspective to know that Nick Saban/Alabama is not the only school in the country to do this...and I am sure there are a handful of stories just like this...
