SI.com has a story today on how recruits deal with negative recruiting tactics from college coaches. Take for instance a conversation Nerlens Noel had with a college coach about Kentucky offering him money:
“(Nerlens Noel) recalled a conversation with a college coach during his recruitment process who urged him not to let money play a factor in luring him to Kentucky. Noel, a center, eventually picked the Wildcats.
“I was shocked that he would say something crazy like that,” said Noel, the No. 2 player in the Rivals150 last season. “Of course I would never accept money and of course Kentucky never offered me money, but to hear that from him turned me off. I didn’t hold it against him because I know coaches get jealous at times. I just look at it like they’re really just insecure about themselves.”
Any guesses as to who this coach could be???
