Courageous Cougar: Greenberry to HoustonFebruary 2, 2012
I completely and totally respect Deontay Greenberry and applaud his decision to attend the University of Houston. Greenberry, the long time Notre Dame commit, pulled the biggest shocker in recent memory flipping from the Irish to the Cougars yesterday sending shock waves through the internet. Most stories will tell you about the relationship “Tay” established with former ASU and current Houston assistant Jamie Christian. Furthermore, this is more shocking as it was common knowledge that Greenberry, at least until recently, wanted to attend college with his cousin, Notre Dame early enrolee Tee Shepard. This made the switch all the more surprising, how does one of the elite players in the country leave sunny California for Houston? How elite was Greenberry this year? He set California state records for touchdowns by a WR with an ungodly 33 and receiving yards 2,165 best marks ever in the state of California! ARE YOU SERIOUS? Hell yes, I’M DEAD ASS SERIOUS!!!
The answer is quite simple, Greenberry had the courage to do what was right for him and not bend under the pressure that so many recruits give in to through the recruiting process. Greenberry is not afraid to pave his own way and embraced the challenge of becoming the man at UH instead of just another top recruit at Notre Dame. That put quite simply takes a lot of nuts ….. there is no other way to say it. The most interesting part of this is that Greenberry is in my opinion the best receiver in the country, yes even over Dorial Green-Beckham. Greenberry’s aggression combined with his competitive spirit, unparalleled skill set, athleticism and knowledge of the game are talents very few are blessed with.
Deontay is going to have a field day in the high powered Houston offense and you are a fool to doubt the dreaded boy wonder for even a second. Brian Kelly should be ashamed of himself after the comments made regarding this whole issue. Every year hundreds of high school stars go “where they are supposed to” pressured into conforming. How many of today’s stars that signed will transfer within two years? Hats of to Deontay Greenberry for bucking the trend and setting the precedent hopefully for more star players in the future. #Paveyourownway Greenberry will be under the microscope at Houston …… expect nothing but the best, as this California product is the real deal. Thank You Deontay Greenberry for a moment of clarity and truth on one of the most convoluted and sheisty days of the year, National Signing Day.
