I feel like there were coaches saying the same stuff last season, and after the debacle of February, he tried to make some recruiting pushes. So it’s not surprising. He’s a lazy recruiter that nobody wants to play for. I think all of this stems from an “I’m not going to beg kids to play for me. They are lucky if I even want them” mentality. He seems a little high on himself .

ALL of this was rehashed around the time the February fiasco was unfolding.  Some people would trash any of us for questioning Harsin's tactics, they assured us that he had to get recruits that "met HIS standard" and a lot of the highly rated players just didn't fit His prototype.  Then a huge campaign was unleashed after the investigation was completed where ALL of the media outlets pushed positive vibes on us and did everything possible to make Harsin seem likeable and friendly.  Then the Tiger Ambush or whatever it was called where he was pounding the pavement on a recruiting tour.  Then we see folks hyped and jacked up with lists upon lists of every recruit that ever mentioned Auburn ..........It was all not naught!

Mods, if this needs to be in the recruiting forum, feel free to move it.  But it feels like with Harsin's job security in the air, this could be an illuminating part of the reason.

Should be able to fire him for cause...

What shocked the $h!t out of me was there were seasoned SEC coaches on staff that I feel confident told Harsin & the Boise staffers who and where they needed to concentrate their recruiting efforts. There's no freaking way Carnell/Friend/Bobo/Mason didn't inform the entire staff and tried to set up the recruiting ground work.  And for Harsin to come in and either brush them off or totally ignore them is asinine.  Greene and any other member of the athletic department had to have known what was going on.  My God, it's so glaringly obvious when Auburn University doesn't attempt to have a presence at the largest high schools in-state.

What a shock........ we've known this for over a year.

AND what has been done about it?  

Have changes or adjustments to the recruiting processes changed to ensure Auburn has a presence in the top high schools?  Has there been a follow-up to the articles that came out earlier this year?

Would this be a topic up for discussion if it had been fixed? 😒

I honestly don't know if I can handle it right now with what I'm also dealing with in real life it might be too much for me.

You are correct it would definitely be the most Auburn thing to do 🙄

 I honestly don't know how I would feel on one hand we won but at what cost? I don't think it would be good for Harsin to stay as our coach.

Oh man I am sorry. I hope everything is going okay or you at least have support. At the end of the day this is just a game. I hope you prioritize yourself and whatever else is impacting you.

Yes. We have the portal which is a big asset to any coach 

We're sorry. The portal you have dialed is disconnected, or is no longer in service. If you feel you have reached this message in error, please fire your coach, and hire again.

With the  support staff that Auburn has, you can reach out to every high school coach in Alabama with a letter, email, text, phone call or visit in 2 weeks time.  You tell them that you are making every effort possible to get by and see them, but if I don’t get to see you, here is my cell give me a call or text anytime. 
 

That support staff can find every possible recruit in Alabama and have a list from best to least.  If little old 1A Keith High school in Orville, Al has a 2* Div 2 recruit, you at least call the coach and say hey.

Very close to the situation at Thompson HS and know for a fact he has spent virtually no time on their campus 

I live a mile from the school and attend every game and can confirm this as TRUE!

I think “damning” is too far (some of the coaches liked him) but it ain’t good or even passable either. Seems like he doesn’t understand you have to recruit the HS head coach and the recruit and that the HC showing up in person is a huge deal even if for only 30 minutes. He is way out of his league and it was correctable but that chance is long gone now. I don’t think he would correct corse anyway. Seems stubborn as hell.

Hey, I'm grateful it only took a little over one season to figure this out. Much better than him going 12-0 last year and getting a raise and an extension and then this sh*t coming to light.
