Kouandjio's choice may come down to family vote | TideSports.com

Quote

The Cyrus Kouandjio saga took another turn this evening when the highly-recruited offensive lineman's father told The Tuscaloosa News that the family will vote some time tonight on the player's college destination.

Quote

"I would love to play right beside my brother," Kouandjio said after he committed. "Honestly, I'm still thinking about it."

Quote

The player's father said he was unfamiliar with Auburn until AU head coach Gene Chizik made a recruiting visit and the announcement caught him off guard.
“I knew about them only last week," Jean Claude Kouandjio. "They had a visit in my house last week. I don't know a lot about them.”

Quote

“Yeah, that's where my hope was. I was thinking that's where he would be going because his brother could be a good mentor for him too,” the father said.
“Of course. I was surprised," he said.

I literally just walked in from work and haven't had any access to updates for the last 7 hours. I take it Cyrus still hasn't signed the LOI...geez, this has been a weird recruiting year to say the least.

This one has been a strange one.
I know this is only going to start stupid remarks from stupid ppl, but if Bama has been the choice of him and his family the whole time, why Auburn now?

If it comes down to a family vote then we all know what his family will pick. If his family had visited with him, this would be a non-issue and he would already have signed...now, they will vote, ignorant of what Auburn really stands for.

If Auburn came into the picture earlier it probably wouldn't of been so strange. If he wanted to play with his brother so much, you have to wonder what made him like Auburn so much, so quick.

Chizik found a few of the pills that y'all fed to Calloway.

I'll tell you one thing...after this I sure am glad we dropped the soft commit of Marcus Roberson, and went after the solid, and eager one from Whitehead.

Going to Bama would seem to be easier on the family, they could go to one place to see both their boys play football, they could root for one team all the time.
And he seems to want to play with his brother anyway.

But, if he still picks Auburn after this he must really feel strong about playing there.

With that logic, he will eventually sign with Alabama!

From listening to the interview, it sounded like his father respected his decision, but wants him to sit down and explain the decision to him because they don't know much about Auburn. During the interview his dad said, "We want him to make his own decision", I don't think they're literally going to have a family vote, they're just going to go over his options again and I think he sticks with Auburn.

I believe Calloway was also a solid Bama commit until his sudden love for Auburn, only at the last minute did he see the light.

The light of NO playing time for years?
