The Gunner Kiel, Landon Collins, and Yuri Wright Awards - 2015 Edition



Previous Winners:
Gunner Kiel Award
2013 - Ruben Foster, 5* LB, AL
2014 - Travon Valentine, 4* DT, FL

Landon Collins Award
2014 - Malik McDowell, 5* DL, MI

Yuri Wright Award
2014 - Dalvon Stuckey, 3*, DL, AL

Description:
Gunner Kiel Award
The Gunner Kiel award is given to the 2015 recruit (JUCO or HS) with the nation's oddest recruitment. Things like repeated flips, visits to strange schools (e.g. schools outside the player's announced top group), adding/dropping schools routinely and without sound reasoning, committing because a certain school has a Chik-Fil-A on campus, and tattoos all add to the case, while keeping your head on it's shoulders is good for major points in the minus column.

Landon Collins Award
The Landon Collins award is given to the 2015 recruit (JUCO or HS) with the nation's most overbearing parents. Things like openly trying to get paid, telling the recruit where they can or can't go, chucking your kid out of the house, and keeping LSU number 1 baby are all big pluses. Letting the kid make his own decision eliminates you from contention.

Yuri Wright Award
The Yuri Wright award is given to the 2015 recruit (JUCO or HS) with the nation's dumbest social media interaction. Tweeting out cash, weapons, drugs, or porn stars are definitely major points. Releasing a nice statement discussing the rationale for a commitment/decommitment doesn't help.


Timeline:
Please submit all nominations in this thread on or before National Signing Day 2015.

Once all nominations are gathered, a poll will be created and voting will commence.

It's early, but we could have an generational GK award contender in the 2017 class if Juan Harris keeps up his pace. So far, here's his recruitment:
Arrow In July, he named Wisconsin his leader. Shortly thereafter, he moved from Illinois to Wisconsin.
Arrow In September, Harris attempted to commit to Wisconsin, but was not accepted by the staff because he's 380 pounds and is in horrible shape
Arrow In November, Harris moved from Wisconsin to Iowa.
Arrow In December, Harris committed to Iowa. When asked about other potential offers, Harris said "I will appreciate their offer but what man will I be if I commit to Iowa then decommit, then commit to someone else?".
Arrow 2 weeks later, Harris decommitted from Iowa.
Arrow 2 more weeks later, Harris named Oregon, Alabama, and Ohio State his top 3 schools. None have offered.

Honestly, that might deserve it's own award. Or give him a lifetime achievement award for weirdest recruiting story ever.

For the Landon Collins award, Tim Settle could be an early contender. His family was so obviously seeking money that OSU, Bama, and a ton of other schools stopped recruiting him. Settle also had his parents specifically reach out to Ole Miss, because paper stacks.

Some Gunner Kiel nominees we came up with last night:

Ugo Amadi: Commits to Ole Miss in March, decommits in December, commits to LSU on December 30th (was apparently the kid who Chavis personally recruited), Chavis leaves, Ugo sends his tape to Oregon about a week later, they offer, he flips on the spot.

Chris Clark: Names the largest group of favorites I've ever seen, randomly commits to UNC in March, then decommits after less than a month, commits to Michigan in June, decommits after Hoke is fired, looks likely to head to to Michigan because of Harbaugh.

Marcus Lewis: Don't know the details, but commits to VT in November 2013, decommits 3 weeks later, commits to UF in April, decommits in July.

Ben Edwards: Seems like Auburn is his favorite for several months on twitter, said he would use his 8000th tweet to announce his commitment, starts deleting tweets so he won't hit 8000, OSU offers in January, he cancels his twitter announcement and starts talking up OSU, commits to OSU in February, visits Auburn for A-Day in April, flips, makes plans to room with another safety commit we had, says he's shutting it down and he doesn't want to be one of "those kids", woke up one morning in August and announced he was decommitting, Stanford and ND became the favorites, recently committed to Stanford, but wouldn't surprise me if he didn't sign there.

He has to be the early favorite for the GK award

I'm with everyone else, I think Ugo Amadi should be the front-runner for the 2015 Gunner Kiel Award. Not sure who to nominate for the other two though.

Long way to go kids.
Also why must nominee's be submitted before NSD? That's when the real fun starts.

Also, I feel the Landon Collins Award should be the Landon/Alex Collins award. Unfair to leave the mother of Alex off that list considering she stole the forms. Laughing

For the Landon Collins award, I nominate Rico McGraw, who wants to commit to Georgia but is an Alabama commit because his parents have insisted on it.

On or before. That way we can start voting the day after NSD, though we might have to delay it if craziness happens.

Tried to change it but she ran up here and stole my computer.

Jayru Campbell

He should automatically win. He then got out of prison and was back in like 5 hours for choking his girlfriend
