Oh well, can't blame the kid but he could of had extremely something special here.

He could or we could? Let's not kid ourselves.

Yes, playing close to family and with your Dad as a coach isn't special.

It was the only shot we had.

There was a 0.0% chance he was ever coming here.. There are only 30 total schools that have gotten a 5 star over the past 4 recruiting cycles.. Needless to say CUSA doesn't land 5 stars. Sure, playing for your pops is nice, but he's a top flight P5 talent.

I'm just thankful we were on his list. He got us some exposure we wouldn't have gotten otherwise.  I'm sure his Dad is thankful for that, as we all should be. 

I love Charlotte more than just an athletic institution, but if this were my son, I'd want him in the situation that would best prepare him for his future.  With all due respect to our school, I believe he made the right choice. 

And who knows?  If he's unhappy and ends up transferring one day, we are absolutely the program he's going to be most familiar with.  Happy for Coach Henry, as well as KJ.

If Lambert is dumb enough to hire coaches for their kids, he should start with solid 3 star dad's.. I'm sure Henry was hired becasue of his High School connections more so than his kid being  top 10 recruit.

It's only dumb if it doesn't work.  murmors of SC trying to lure away Mr. Henry for that exact reason.  Nave to think you wouldn't do whatever is within rules to not get a player like that.  I'm also sure he was hired here because he can help the team.  just saying

Well, it didn't work.. Lets reassess who was naive here.

We don't have the bottomless pockets an SEC does to hire an assistant.. SC laughs at our budget, they can do things like that and not bat an eye.. If we are using what little resources we have to hire a coach just to land his son, thats a terrible use limited dollars. I hate to break it to you, we could have Von Miller at DE for us and it probably doesn't make us a bowl team.

Again, I'm sure Henry was hired for his HS connections in the state, not becasue we thought there was a shot he'd play here.

True that. You don't think he knows one of those he could eliminate just to add Charlotte in there. Or make it a top 6. Someone needs a spanking. Where is AP when you need him?
