How to Buy a 5-Star Recruit: The Demond Demas Saga

Recommended Posts

Condensing the great work done by @Neonmoon, @Burt Macklin, etc.

Five-star WR and aggy commit Demond Demas wanted to transfer from North Forest High School to Tomball High School. He stated it was to better his living situation, and not for athletics (DESPITE his two younger brothers not making the move with him). There were rumors he had been living with Hunter Dunn's family in Tomball. 

UIL denied the waiver. aggy blamed the evil sips. 

North Forest head coach Terrell stated under oath that Demas was being shopped as a package deal with Dunn to schools like Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and LSU.

Quote

Terrell also said he was notified by coaches at LSU, Mississippi and Oklahoma State that Whitfield was “shopping” Demas and Dunn as a “package” to prospective schools. Demas committed to A&M last September while at North Forest. Dunn has not picked a school.

It turns out QB Hunter Dunn wants a better WR to make him look good so he can get an athletic scholarship

Demand wanted to be closer to Raaschad Whitfield aka Footwork King to get free training. 

The head coach of Tomball high school is Kevin Flanigan. Turns out he went to aggy and his daughter works for them as a recruiting assistant. What a better place for A&M to make sure no other schools come calling with better offers than one with an A&M head coach.

It also turns out, that Footwork King business is on property owned by the Dunn family

@Burt Macklin's tl;dr version:

So basically, we’ve gotten as much evidence as would ever come to light without an FBI investigation that FWK was shopping Demond and aggy, who was not even in his top 5, clearly paid top price and got him to commit shortly after. Then, FWK and aggy work out a mutually beneficial situation where Demas goes to Tomball to help out the son of FWK’s financial investor and stash him on a team with an aggy HC, so they can have the HC ward off other schools and secure FWK’s loyalty beyond just being the highest bidder. So basically aggy screwed Demas out of playing his senior season so they could lock him up and then will further screw him by putting him in a system that’s terrible for WRs. I’d almost feel bad for Demas if he wasn’t a shithead who bashes UT at every chance.

Demas says it was all because North Forest is a violent hellhole (true enough), but HE LEFT HIS TWO YOUNGER BROTHERS THERE. Funny, that.

You still forgot to add that the cited reason of a better environment somehow neglecting leaving the two younger siblings who weren't college football prospects behind at North Forest. And editing the actual quote in the OP from NeonMoon that had the North Forest HC would probably be useful as well. 

 

Just constructive criticism, great work  man.

And, @closetojumping's ideas for what to do with this if anyone's having a slow day at work:

There is still an appetite for folks to dig into stuff like this, basically because there’s concrete proof and a scent trail. Aggies love turning the turret on entities and attempting to force them to capitulate to aggie demands. This is one where the idiots have exposed themselves and garnered our attention because they can’t shut the fuck up about ridiculous conspiracies. 

You could basically take Neonmoon’s post, add links and do any other simple digging that suits you, wrap it into a Word, PPT or PDF and ship it to the Robinson guy at Yahoo that did the Lyles story. I don’t know if he’s still there but this is the kind of shit he digs. The NCAA has an electronic inbox for delivering things like this. It’s also not hard to send in to the UT, UH, Tech, LSU, Arky, SMU, OU and OSU athletic programs without comment. Strong odds if you do all that, which would probably take a couple of hours if a few of you crowdsourced it, it’s not crazy to think a story or case comes in from somewhere. This one is as corrupt as a $3 bill.

The only thing missing is someone to dig up the right email addresses, honestly. Putting this in a word doc takes 10 minutes.

This is all a sip conspiracy!  My grandma always said where there is a pile of shit in your yard, you are bound to find a dog. Seems very fishy that FWK gets a spot on the land of an Aggie.  I would love to see how he paid for it.  This could get nasty and aggy will play the “We didn’t know” card.  They have really taken to life in the SEC.  I hope this goes further and they all burn for cheating. 

I would feel bad for Demond if he wasn’t such a dick at every chance to bad mouth us.  He’s guilty because he played along and he should lose his right to play college ball for at least a year if he goes to aggy.

also is it true aggy wasn't even in Demas' top 5 list? Then he all of a sudden committed to them? Do we have enough dates to put together a timeline?

Looking at Courtney Flanigan's LinkedIn her work at aggy stopped 4 years ago in May of 2015.  But she does not have a start date listed for United.

You should change that to once worked for aggy recruiting.

The rumor is that the Dunn family are actually burnt orange. Not sure if that's true, but if it is the land FWK is on isn't necessarily aggy.

There's a difference between knowing how shit works and being able to drop a document outlining all of it explicitly to recruits and their parents, dude. Sort of like the difference between saying "Listen, Jimbo Fisher is scummy, fosters a bad environment to kids and doesn't care about education" versus just tossing down some printed out copies of articles from sports journalists that chronicle the details of his fall at FSU and how they have the lowest APR in college football. 

People have been telling stories about Art Briles for decades now as a scumbag and rape apologist. Guess there was nothing different about that and the coverage at Baylor, either.

my post was focusing on the dirty recruiting aspect, since others had covered the holes in Demas' transfer case, but yeah, that should definitely be included in the overall argument.

My point was I'm sure Herman was already well aware of the connection between Demas, FWK, the Tomball move, the Tomball head coach, his prospect son and Aggy.   I mean Demas is one of the top recruits in the State.   Seriously doubt any of this is news to him.

Didn't someone post screenshots of FWK texting the parents of a "prospect" and telling them that he could get them an offer to college XYZ for $5k?

Indeed, they did. And then a now notorious surly poster who couldn't understand phone numbers berated an innocent man over text, thinking it was the FWK, only to be met with the now iconic "I'm in Hydraulics." 

That was it, yes?

I'm sure he knows there's smoke considering FWK is involved but I doubt he knows all of these details unearthed by our resident detectives.

We need Brett Mcmurphy on the case. Perhaps he can start with an interview of the North Forest HC.

I'm surprised Zach Smith didn't off that poor bloke, there was and is still some serious bad blood there. McMurphy's story on Zach Smith was huge.

People are already running away with this but it doesn't make sense. 

Assuming that A&M/FWK/Demas/Dunn/Flanagan are all working together, two of the main "facts" here are irreconcilable: 

  1. FWK is shopping Demas and Dunn as a package deal
  2. A&M isn't recruiting Dunn and even put Demas under Flanagan so that other schools can't get him

If FWK/A&M are working togehter, why is A&M letting him shop their best commitment to other schools?

Someone will say it's just to get Dunn offers and that Demas isn't actually being shopped. If that's the case, if the entire purpose of that is to buy Demas, why is a core part of the plan to pretend to sell him to other schools? It's just a stupid idea. 

Plus there's the small detail that Demas was committed to A&M and bought in to their class like 6 months before the transfer.

I initially took the "shopping" statement as a public allegation of money changing hands but it seems to be more about FWK wanting to find a school to take both Demas and Dunn? Where there's smoke there's usually fire but maybe I'm reading too much into it. Is the NCAA rules violation possibility at this point more about impermissible benefits?

Maybe.  But I think you underestimate how much coaches know. Particularly when it's an elite recruit that could really make a difference.

FWK: "Dunn and Demas are a package deal."

*crickets*

aggy: "We don't want Dunn, but if Demas commits to us, we have a plan to get the QB some offers..."

Along these lines, is this story really just wealthy dude with gridiron dreams for his son tries to buy QB son the area's best WR?
