    This is how the LSU football program needs to pitch Arch Manning to get him to Baton Rouge. LSU football fans would be so elated if the Tigers secure Arch Manning‘s five-star commitment. Now that Alabama’s image has been tarnished in Manning’s eyes, here is how Coach O and his staff show him the love and get his father Cooper to yell, “Geaux Tigahs!” The No. 1 player from the State of Louisiana always plays at LSU. Does Manning want to be the lone exception in the last decade-plus, or does he want to be exceptional? It is time for a Manning to Call Baton Rouge. Not only can Manning win it all at LSU, he can win something no Manning has ever won before: A Heisman Trophy. Alabama and Texas have never had a Heisman-winning quarterback, only runner-ups. If Manning wants to know where the bar is at LSU, look no...
    Getty Andre Drummond confirmed he spoke with Anthony Davis and LeBron James about joining the Lakers. It was widely expected that LeBron James and Anthony Davis helped recruit Andre Drummond to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers. Drummond confirmed he talked with James and Davis but played coy when discussing their recruiting pitches. The newest Lakers center paused then smiled when asked if he had discussions with James and Davis about coming to the Lakers. “I made my decision based off what was best for me, not because of what anyone told me,” Drummond said with a smile during his introductory press conference. “Definitely, talking to these teams and talking to guys about how I fit on the team was a fun process for me. And having that conversation with those two guys [LeBron James and Anthony Davis] of what they were looking for from me was...
    Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s recruiting pitch to Louisiana recruits is an absolutely brutal kick in the gut to LSU football. Nick Saban has a hell of a recruiting pitch for Lousiana prospects that should make LSU sick. He just has to list off the names of all the stars he’s poached from the state. The Alabama head coach spoke to the Louisiana High School Coaches Association this week and used the opportunity to stick it to the Tigers. “You [the LHSCA] have certainly been good to us as we continue to recruit Louisiana,” Saban said. “We’ve had some had fantastic players including Smitty [DeVonta Smith]…Landon Collins and Eddie Lacy and Cam Robinson and Tim Williams and Dylan Moses and Christian Harris…Lots and lots of good players, and I didn’t name them all.” #pain pic.twitter.com/pwdh0fO9iQ — Michael Cauble (@Cauble) March 26, 2021 Saban might as well have taken a...
    Getty LeBron James praised Steph Curry after the 2021 NBA All-Star Game. Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal was known for giving nicknames during his NBA career and “The Big Recruiter” sounds like a perfect Shaq-approved title for LeBron James. No player uses NBA All-Star Weekend more as a recruiting tool than James who has been a captain the last four years. After Team LeBron’s blowout win, James took to Twitter to give Steph Curry a special shoutout. “Finally got to share the floor with @StephenCurry30!” James noted on Twitter. “Well overdue and I loved every single second!! #GreatestShooterOfAllTime #ChangedHowTheGameIsPlayedByHimselfAlone #RespectBeyondWords #JustSomeKidsBornInAKRON????????” The comments immediately turned heads given Steph Curry has yet to sign a contract extension with the Warriors and is slated to be a free agent in 2022. It did not take long for photos of Curry wearing a Lakers jersey to circulate like the...
    J.J. Watt didn't lack for suitors when deciding where to continue his spectacular football career. The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year said there were four or five teams seriously in the hunt. But the more he looked at his options, the more the Arizona Cardinals made sense. They had a young, talented quarterback in Kyler Murray. They had his old buddy from the Texans, DeAndre Hopkins, one of the top receivers in the league. They had defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, for whom he played in Houston early in his career and admires.

    By DAVID BRANDT, AP Sports Writer TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — J.J. Watt didn't lack for suitors when deciding where to continue his spectacular football career. The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year said there were four or five teams seriously in the hunt. But the more he looked at his options, the more the Arizona Cardinals made sense. They had a young, talented quarterback in Kyler Murray. They had his old buddy from the Texans, DeAndre Hopkins, one of the top receivers in the league. They had defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, for whom he played in Houston early in his career and admires. There were also those pictures that everyone in the Cardinals organization kept sending him of Paradise Valley. “I'm not going to lie to you," Watt said on Tuesday.

Watt to the Arizona Cardinals. © Sean Logan/The Republic via Imagn Content Services, LLC On Monday, after Watt revealed he was signing with the Cardinals, Jones posted a screenshot of a direct message he sent roughly two weeks ago. In it, he offers to be Watt’s personal chef, with two free days a week.

It sounds like he’s going to be a busy guy. In reality, Jones was probably a key factor in Watt’s decision, but not because of his cooking....
    Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan responds to New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell’s recruiting pitch to quarterback Russell Wilson. This week, the Seattle Seahawks fanbase got a taste of what the Houston Texans faithful are currently dealing with in the Deshaun Watson saga. After reports circulated that Russell Wilson was unhappy with the Seahawks coaching staff, another bombshell dropped on Thursday. Wilson’s agent told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that his client would like to remain in Seattle but if a trade were to become a reality, he would prefer to be traded to either the Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders, Chicago Bears or New Orleans Saints. On Saturday, New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell sent out a video on her Twitter account to recruit Wilson to the Saints. Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan responded to Cantrell over three hours later, telling her to “keep your eyes off” Wilson. That, and Durkan jokingly said that her city...
    New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell wants Russell Wilson and Ciara to come to her city so the New Orleans Saints can win another Super Bowl.Give it up for New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell, whose recruiting pitch for Russell Wilson and Ciara to the New Orleans Saints would make even Ed Orgeron, Nick Saban or Kirby Smart jealous. Even though the Saints have major cap issues, as well as Drew Brees not officially announcing his retirement just yet, Wilson would supposedly welcome a trade to the Saints. If he were to be the Saints’ next franchise quarterback, they would stand a great chance of winning the NFC South for the fifth year in a row. With a great defense backing Wilson up, the Saints could win Super Bowl 56. I have been hearing the rumors on the streets. ???? I dont know if they are true or not. But, I just want...
    Texas could have had Adrian Peterson but they blew it  Adrian Peterson is about to enter his age-36 season in the NFL, but the former Oklahoma football star remembers exactly how the Texas football program blew it in his recruitment out of high school. Peterson appeared Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast to discuss the matter. Despite having an uncle who played for the Longhorns, the Palestine, Texas native went to Oklahoma over Texas and USC because of the work ethic emanating from Bob Stoops’ Sooners program, as well as an opportunity to compete for a starting job as a true freshman. Oh, Texas messed up bad. [email protected] almost went to USC and competed with Reggie Bush for the starting RB job: “It came down to Oklahoma & USC, it was a tough decision. But ultimately it came down to being closer to family and the development of the players...

    Getty J.J. Watt celebrates with a teammate. J.J. Watt has hit the NFL market, and his introduction to that has sent several fanbases into an unmitigated frenzy as it relates to trying to lure the big time defender to town. The Baltimore Ravens are a team that hasn’t shied away from adding big-time veteran help in recent years, and Watt could be a player who fits in that mold as well for the future. So why should Watt consider the Ravens? Let well-known Jimmy’s Seafood explain the reasoning with a tweet. 4 reasons you should #ComeToTheRavens, sir. 1. Bragging rights/sibling rivalry with your brothers 2X a year. 2. Instant Super Bowl contenders. 3. Anthony Weaver will be your coach again. 4. We can make some charitable magic together – while enjoying some darn good crab cakes! https://t.co/OMfiReXQbY — Jimmy’s Famous Seafood (@JimmysSeafood) February 12, 2021 It’s pretty...
    Getty Cowboys players have already begun recruiting J.J. Watt. J.J. Watt just became the most-saught after NFL free agent, and we can expect Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to at least place a call to see if the pass rusher is interested in staying in the state of Texas. Watt announced he both requested and was granted his release from the Texans immediately making him a free agent. The star defensive end even expressed his love for Texas in a heartfelt video announcing his release. “I wanted to do this on video as opposed to putting out a statement or doing a press conference or anything like that, because I want you guys to hear it directly from me,” Watt explained. “I want to speak directly to you and the city of Houston so you can hear the words straight from my mouth. I have sat down with...
    Former Alabama football players are voicing their disappointment in the leaking of a Nick Saban recruiting video. Several former Alabama Crimson Tide football players have taken to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction regarding a leaked recruiting video that went viral over the weekend. A Zoom call with 2022 defensive end recruit Enai White featured Nick Saban talking him through what makes the Alabama football program so special. We’ve never before seen this in-depth of look into how the Crimson Tide go about recruiting. We know that Alabama has won 5college football national championships in the last decade, so if given the opportunity to go, recruits can always think about that. But, it’s different when you see Saban making the pitch himself. So when former Alabama football players learned that their secrets to success were being shared all over the internet, they were understandably upset.Former Alabama football players didn’t appreciate the leaked recruiting videoCurrent...
    A leaked video has shined a light on Alabama coach Nick Saban’s pitch to recruits. In a YouTube video posted by Peavy Dawg, Saban can be seen on a video chat with an unnamed recruit making his pitch, and it’s pretty much pornographic for fans of the Crimson Tide. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Alabama Football (@alabamafbl) He just listed off all his national titles, how many players make the NFL and said the recruit will face better competition in practice than he will in a game. Watch the awesome video below. For fans of college football, I’m not sure how you can watch that video and not immediately love it. That was awesome. How can any other coach in America recruit against that? Saban was just spitting facts in that...
    The Giants finished under .500 for the fourth consecutive season in 2020, but president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi believes the organization has plenty of reasons to believe free agents will view San Francisco as a desirable destination. After Giants coaches helped Kevin Gausman and Drew Smyly reestablish their value and parlay their experience with the franchise into more lucrative contracts this offseason, Zaidi thinks others in similar positions see the value of working with a forward-thinking staff. “I think we try to look for guys with ability, but guys that have the aptitude and motivation to make adjustments,” Zaidi said on a video conference on Wednesday. “That’s what everybody is looking for and we’ve been fortunate to find guys that have been able to execute at a level that’s put them in a much better position from a market standpoint.” The Giants made Gausman a top...
    Barry Switzer, Oklahoma Sooners. Mandatory Credit: STEPHEN DUNN/ALLSPORT Barry Switzer tells us how he got Texas natives to come play for him at OU.Barry Switzer just added a little heat to the spicy Red River Rivalry between Oklahoma and Texas. I mean, who doesn’t love a good heated rivalry with a side of pettiness? In terms of neutral-site affairs, few rivalries in college football can hold a candle to what Oklahoma football has with Texas football in the Red River Rivalry. Every year, the Oklahoma Sooners meet the Texas Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl to usually decide who wins the Big 12. Oklahoma normally has the upper hand. Switzer had a phenomenal coaching career at Oklahoma from 1973 to 1988. He went 157-29-4 overall, going a ridiculous 100-11-1 in Big Eight Conference play, finishing inside of the top-10 12 times, winning 12 conference titles and winning three national championships as...
