I wouldn't read much into it, unless it goes beyond today. If it persists, though, then things get a bit interesting.

    Edit: The reason I say this is I've seen the same thing play out with Xavier commits. A guy commits, his teammate who is also a high-D1 recruit is excited for him and is tweeting stuff about Xavier, and suddenly Xavier fans are like, "Maybe we can get him too!". They start tweeting at the teammate, and he retweets because he likes the attention and they're his teammates' new fans. Maybe in that moment of excitement he's thinking it could be cool to keep playing ball with the new Xavier commit, but by a day or two later, that feeling had subsided and nothing came of the whole thing.
    Part of it is because their coach is Simpson's father and he said the two want to play together in college. However that was told to a Purdue website back in May (who were recruiting both players). Cincinnati isn't really interested in a PG for the 2016 class and has not been recruiting Simpson thus far.

    You guys with that twitter stuff, ramp it up and talk Kaiser's buddy Kobi Simmons to come to X next year.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Thanks for the input. Yeah, I remember hearing that they wanted to play together in college back when Xavier was renewing the conversation with Cumberland but didn't think much of it, because these package deals rarely happen.

    Nah, I don't want the NCAA enforcement staff sniffing around here.

    So, of course I had to look this guy up, only to find we are one of the few schools on the planet not to offer this guy. Top schools, small schools, schools near and far. All of which confounds me and reinforces just how little I know about which schools chase which kids, and why.

    Which is why I don't follow recruits until they actually sign. I don't need to cry over potential spilled milk.

    Xavier Simpson

    Maybe we didn't make him an offer because he pronounces Xavier wrong?!?!?!? ;-)

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    We definitely have an offer out to Xavier Simpson and we're in his top 5 or 6. They're referring to Kobi Simmons, the #7 or so overall recruit in 2016. He was a high school teammate of Kaiser Gates.
