Jordan Nevels to Highlands?

Page 6 of Thanks Oldbird. If the Nevels move here, I guess their other son, Joesph, will have to commute to SK for a few months. Shouldn't be too bad to do. If J... 153 comments | 25764 Views | Go to page 1 →

    WHO Cares? no offense but if this kid goes to Highlands so be it. Then he learns the "bluebird" way and become part of their team and not SK. So be it. If SK wants to make a big deal out of they can (question his eligiblity, gradianship, so on) will they probably not will the AD sign off on it probably even if the AD and the football coach is one and the same will this make Highlands better? maybe will this hurt SK? maybe but if the kid wasn't happy there how did it help SK?

    Aren't message boards like this meant to discuss different topics?If you don't care, then don't post a response.

    I think some people care. I mean the thread got to 4 pages with you posting.

    It has :kiss: but really why is there 4 pages? talking about a high school student leaving one school because of not being happy taking his ball and going elsewhere:bounce: What about loyality? Hhow do college recuiters look at that? wouldn't u wonder when a player leaves one school goes to another very close to former school and changes gaurdianship to do so? wouldn't this set off a red flag in your head? is the kid coachable and left because he wasn't a team player?

    Because it's news. It's football news. Football in NKY is as big as Basketball is in the rest of the state. Something happens affecting the football world up here, people want to know.

    Loyalty? Maybe in college, maybe. But not in highschool. They didn't recruit him to go to SK, he lived in that area and had little choice. In college they recruit you and so there should be some loyalty there. See Marvin Stone story about transferring schools and loyalty.

    College recruiters, what do they care whether you transferred or not, they're only interested in the bottom line, are you qualified and are you coming to their school.

    Changes in guardianship I didn't know about until today. I thought the family was moving to Ft. Thomas. If true, then that does raise a little concern and I'm sure will be looked in to by SK or KHSAA.

    By the way, I couldn't find it scanning(really fast scanning) the other posts in the thread. When school starts in August for Highlands, what grade will Jordan be?

    By the way, I have met labs and I think he would be a good sideline reporter. He speaks well, is quick on his feet, and he is funny and I know how much you guys like to be funny on TV.

    One more thing, the only problem with labs is he has a radio face.
    my source on this is as good as it gets, that was insider sarcasm

    The thread title is "JORDAN NEVELS TO HIGHLANDS?" So why not discuss it. Obviously, it is quite possible this is going to happen. Otherwise this thread would've been shut down because of the rule about discussing rumors.

    I do agree that nothing it certain until it actually happens. But it's fun to speculate about what could happen and what he might bring to the team.

    If you've been a coach for over a decade, I'm sure there's been a time or two where you thought you might be getting a good player transferring in to your school. You can't tell me you didn't sit around with some of your friends and discuss what could happen on the field if you get the kid? It's human nature. That's pretty much what's going on here, except that it's in a public forum and not in the garage throwing back a few brewskies.

    Just like in Cool Hand Luke when they say 'if my man says he can eat fifty eggs, he can eat fifty eggs", if Oldbird says its a done deal, its a done deal.

    true but some post read like this kid is the second coming. Kids a good player his brothers were all good players but I have issues with a kid leaving one place and going else where?

    I know what I would like to see happen but I don't think I really have a say in the matter.

    I'm curious, what would you like to see happen?

    I didn't say it was a done deal. I did say that I have confirmed that he is coming from people both connected to the Highlands program and the SK program. However, Jordan is still a kid and he could change his mind at any point.

    If I was predicting I would say he is leaving SK.

    Where have you been, Oldbird? Good to have you back.
    I have been in Florida for the past week. I ran the Disney marathon with my wife and took my family to Disney World.
