This clown JC Shurburtt has now accused the barker family of lying/misleading him and the uscjr coaching staff.
A. This guy made an ass out of himself in the last week. He all bit trolled our site and belittled uk fans.
B. he told half truths in the last 24 hours about the things going on in the recruitment.
C. For this guy to own one of the fan sites but also be considered a national stylists has a massive conflict of interest. Darrel, Matt & others need to disassociate from this guy and encourage 247 to stop allowing him to be one of their national analysts.
D. As I said in an earlier thread this isn't "rocket surgery". This jc clown had a ton to gain by pumping barker to uscjr. (His association with the site). His writing can influence other recruits and can create a lot of strife. What he did on this recruitment was shameful. His reaction to what happened is to claim he was lied to. To do that is even more shameful. This is the poster child of what a conflict of interest is.

Your team. All the time.
Not sure about all of what you wrote, but there's definitely a better way to handle this situation if you are JC Shurburtt.
Sounds like the USC fans are now calling out Drew AND his family as a result of the post by JC. Pretty sad group if you ask me.
First, admit that your info was wrong, take the high road and wish Drew will. Instead it appears he blamed the kid for "misleading".....that's weak.
Second, Drew developed a good relationship with the staff at USC and he could have "strung" them along on purpose. But there is nothing wrong with that and there doesnt have to be a negative connotation attached to it. He still could have changed his mind up to the point of picking his hat....its called hedging your bets. It happens all the time in recruiting. And it happens all the time on The Bachelor.....lol.
As for the conflict of interest - I personally could care less if he is a national analyst and a USC fan.....it obviously made ZERO difference in where Barker ultimately chose to go to school.

C'Mon. No truth at all to your post. Nobody has accused Drew of lying or anything else.
National Recruiting Analyst
Really? By implying that barker strung along and lied to usc coaches? He chose his words in a way they would imply that barker broke his word to USC coaches. He also reported stuff that was said off the record to TRy to cover his ass.
Proving more and more what he is.
That's why we're proud to have the integrity Chris, Matt and Darrel and the integrity they use when doing their job.

I don't ever come to the Kentucky website but you seem like a real piece of work. Everything else I've seen from the Kentucky fans seems like good people. Your posts come off like an angry 16-year-old.
Also I'm pretty sure JC is a part owner of the entire 247 network so it might be kind of hard for 247 to disassociate. You are basically bashing a national analyst for coming to your website and giving you every bit of information he has.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
I'm bashing him for implying the kid misled
Somebody and for breaking journalistic integrity by releasing off the record info (if it was even ever said)
In the three threads ive read on the site he has come off as a douche bag. To the op Wtf are uou talking about. Jc being doing this recruiting thing for years. He have a incredible track record and has sources.
You have no idea what you're talking about or who JC is, That much is very obvious from your post
No kidding! Have you ever seen anyone complain because someone from another site or a national guy came over to give extra information? That is exactly what makes 247 the best, IMO.

The thing that really doesn't sit we'll with me is although JC didn't actually say the Barkers lied or misled the USC coaches the USC fans thought that was what he meant. Then they go into a full on bash mode on the character of the Barkers. JC could have easily made a statement that he didn't mean it that way in the number of posts he had after his initial one but let it keep going. Poor journalistic integrity on his part. If he is so pissed about being wrong on his crystal ball prediction he should have just consulted with me.
Did JC just report something they was supposedly said off the tedoreV
Did JC imply they barker was misleading/lying to the staff when he supposedly told the uscjr staff that they didnt need to recruit another qb?
Outstanding post. He knew exactly what would happen when he chose his words.
The fact that he didnt put a stop to the bashing shows what his intention was.
I have serious doubts about the "facts" in his original post.
