Roy Schmidt: It’s Not Weber’s Fault

SHARE Roy Schmidt: It’s Not Weber’s Fault

Recruiting analyst Roy Schmidt of the Illinois Prep Bulls-Eye Report sounds off on the Eric Gordon decision:

“None of this was [Illinois coach Bruce] Weber’s fault,” Schmidt said. “It’s becoming quite clear to me that various people in the recruiting process are trying to run Weber out of town. That’s just my opinion.”

“I don’t care what school Eric Gordon chooses,” Schmidt said. “What I do care about is integrity. This sends the wrong message when it comes to how to recruit any student athlete. It says that verbal commitments are non-biding. It says you can go back on your word.”

Schmidt, who has covered the recruiting world for 20 years, says the Gordon recruitment is the craziest situation he’s seen.
