He already verbally committed. To not send in the LOI obviously means that something is wrong.
Watching his interviews...he comes off as a somewhat shy and introverted person.
Not showing up to school and pretending to be sick is something an introverted person would normally do when they are conflicted about something.
They tend to emotionally shut down.
Am I right?
Or are you claiming Monty simply didn't know how to operate a fax machine?
Either way...I'm glad CBD cleared the air.

In response to CoachedByDuffy's post on the back story:
I'm glad that this came out. I'm really going to be pulling for him to succeed, whether it's in football at MSU, or just in the classroom to set himself up for the rest of his life.
I didn't gas the kid on signing day, but I was pretty sure he wasn't coming to MSU, not based on any knowledge of the situation, just because I figured it smelled fishy and that was bad for MSU.
Thanks for posting this CoachedByDuffy!
I'm sorry, but there's no way in hell Moeller's HC was speaking ill of MSU to Monty. MSU's staff and Moeller's coach have about as good of a relationship as you can get in athletic recruiting, considering MSU has taken three of his players, one of whom was a multi-year all-American and draft pick, and another who was a freshman all-American and future star. There was also an article directly quoting him on how pissed he was that Monty had not faxed in his LOI.

I think you missed the comments from the other day that the current HC at Moeller is a fairly recent hire and did not coach Rush and Jones...
I thought CBD said he coached Rush but not GJ?
Moeller's current HC did not coach Greg Jones. He coached Marcus Rush for 2 yrs.
Obviously, you have no clue about the soap opera conducted by the current Moeller HC.
The Moeller HC is a BS'er. He doesn't have that good a relationship with the MSU staff and that's a fact. He is a big-time O$U fan and also a UK fan.
He kept telling Monty to wait for an O$U offer. When that wasn't happening he tried to set up a visit to UK for Monty.
He did not coach Greg Jones and he only coached Marcus Rush for 2 years..

In Madaris, Arnett, Burbridge and Cox, MSU may have 4 more future NFL draft picks...the future looks very bright!
thanks CBD for posting the background on Monty and all your great analysis.....brings a lot of grounded perspective to the crazy recruiting process.
Darn. That's only one freshman all-American, a history of turning Moeller players into pure gold, and direct quotes about him being unhappy with Monty's waivering. I'm sure he totally hates us. Sorry, man, but I still don't buy it.

Don't really care whether you buy it or not, just don't try to bluster your way thru this with absolutely no knowledge of the situation.
Moeller HC is no friend of MSU. Confirmed in private by MSU asst. coaches.
No offense, but I doubt those coaches are happy you're posting that info here.
I'm sure they would like to maintain a good relationship with the guy.
