I think Fleck decided pretty quick after some incidents at WMU that he would have a very short leash with off field issues.The story on 247 mentions off-field transgressions. Doesn't go into detail but story makes it seem like that is part of why he is in the portal. Always disappointing when top rated recruits don't pan out for one reason or another but it does happen.
Unfortunately this is probably it. School is simply not easy for many. Don't doubt he spent much time in study halls trying to catch up and or maintain and probably exhausting doing so.I wonder if he wasn't able to become academically eligible here after one year, so he's transferring to potentially find a place where he can be?
Will be interesting to see if any additional details surface as to what those off-field transgressions might have been.I think Fleck decided pretty quick after some incidents at WMU that he would have a very short leash with off field issues.
Absolutely impossible to know if PJ should be lauded or criticized. He did evaluate and recruit the player. Now after one year he is gone.You have to respect PJ on this one. He is very clear that he is not shaping these young men just as football players, but also academically, socially and spiritually. We all know there are tons of coaches who would look the other way for the right amount of talent. PJ is at least sticking to what he has always preached.
Wish the young man the best, but I'm all in on building our program around guys that want to buy in on all levels.

Who is letting who down? Some kids are harder to coach than others but if you made commitment to him than you need to find a way to help the kid succeed.
No idea, but again lauding PJ and making it all on the player shouldn’t be automatic with no information.
Hopefully, it all works out for him.
Again, we have no idea what the situation is. But, if I sit in your living room and tell the parents I’m going to make your son a man you’ll be proud of. I’ll take care of him.Pretty sure there was information in this thread. Off the field transgressions and we know he was an academic redshirt last year. If a kid doesn't want to do his lifting in the classroom and also stay between the lines off the field, he is making a choice. Not sure it has anything to do with taking time to coach him. I'm sure PJ has a pretty good idea on which kids are going to align with the program within the first year. No coach hits 100% on their evaluations.

And then after a year he’s gone...why should PJ be praised?
That’s just blindly worshiping PJ. Yes, he does make mistakes.
Heck, this could be the best decision and clearly so...but not based on the information on here. It is gossip.
Pretty sure PJ knew he was an academic redshirt when he made the decision to recruit him.
Ah, I remember now. You are a real anti-PJ guy on here. I recall some of your other posts.
