Whatever hopes you had of him I guess can be flushed out.
He tweeted this to me after I asked if he was still planning a visit.
"ive always liked oregon just I feel I dont fit into their scheme of a 3-4 2 gap dlinemen"

Not going to say I'm completely shocked here, still think he ends up at USC ...... Just like Vanderdoes.
Whatever, it wasn't anything bad.
I just laugh at anyone who goes and plays for usc. If someone doesnt want to be a duck, time to move on. NEXT!
Oh btw Jriv how about paying your $25 for the fantasy football?
This is not shocking news but it is still not something that makes my evening better. Hopefully, we were able to make a good impression on James.
Not even visiting, another whiff...
Lol at the two downvotes, some of you guys can't handle some 'bad news' these days.
One of the basic problems that Oregon is dealing with, and it's obviously getting more & more apparent every recruiting season, is how these kids see themselves as NFL players before they ever set foot on a college campus. They have no idea how many things can & will change re their football lives over the next 4-5 yrs. They are sold a bill of good by salesmen like Orgeron that they are this type of player and that their scheme, etc. - and not some other school's scheme - will best prepare them for their sure fire NFL future.
This is big push by schools like USC, which fortunately for them, has a long history of putting a ton of guys into the NFL. Kids like Fitts, and probably his parents, lap this stuff up like hungry dogs. They don't see college as a process, but as a means to end, with that end being making millions as a pro football player. Oregon doesn't sell that and doesn't want players that are pre-occupied with that.
I doubt it's the news, but rather you having a twitter conversation with a teenager who you don't know. FWIW I didn't down vote you, but I agree with JRIV.
Tweeting PSA is weird no doubt..but NOTHING will happen if people do it. Nothing.
A week ago it was oregon's making a big push - now we can't even get the kid to visit - seriously wtf is going on - very discouraging
Time for more meltdown! Hilarious.
Coach Orgeron just had an in home visit.

All I can say is this is pure comedy to me now. Reality is we pretty much have our class sealed up. We're not getting any more commits from kids who are going to blow our minds.
Honestly, expect Cunningham, Powell, Hunt, Smythe, Porter, Falah, etc, etc to all go elsewhere and not even visit. Best to just focus on out current commits and move on to next season. This class is done for the exception of some fillers. Is this really a surprise? Oregdon was in his living room yesterday whispering sweet nothings into Fitt's ear. Telling him how Oregons D scheme does not fit him, just like Vanderdoes was told and these kids believe him.
Most likely he's going to SC and they don't even have a DC so Fitts has no idea what scheme they'll run. I can't but laugh every time I see a new thread about a PSA because it's almost guaranteed it's going to be bad news. Moved on to next year.

Oregon doesn't deserve a 247 site at this rate of recruiting. What's the point.
Keep the faith KOD.
I need to see positive posts from you.
What I meant to say is...Fitts is an Oregon silent commit. ;)
Check your PM
Oregeron is a snake as far i'm concerned. Been following his Negative recruiting since his early Petey days.
Isn't it funny how after Vanderdoes committed to USC he almost said the same thing about Oregon... Verbatim !!

calling your boy out for $25 after he tells you not to contact PSAs... and you're bitching about down votes... seriously?
leave it to the people who don't sweat pocket change to reach out to these kids... people will obviously do whatever they want to do but I can't see see how it helps Oregon football.
That's more like it. Next time though, don't make us ask you for it or it doesn't seem sincere. We need the genuine optimism.
