In a shocker to absolutely no one, Brian Kelly’s best attempt at becoming the dancing queen did not pay off.
In fact, the LSU head coach scared off one of his top recruiting targets and sent him to one of his biggest rivals. Days after cutting a rug with Kelly while on an official visit to Baton Rouge, tight end Danny Lewis committed to play for Nick Saban and Alabama on Wednesday’s National Signing Day, per The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman.
It appears Kelly’s moves weren’t enough to keep the New Iberia, Louisiana product from leaving the state.
Now after taking in whatever that was from Kelly, ask yourself: Would Saban or Kirby Smart ever dare be seen doing this? You probably don’t have to think much to figure out the answer.
Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin clearly wasn’t impressed. He instead took the opportunity to troll Kelly and perhaps steer more recruits to Oxford.
Meanwhile, Lewis, the nation’s No. 31 overall tight end, will now play against Kelly and the Tigers for the next few years in the SEC West.

All Saban could offer was a ring.
and a legit shot at a top-5, 1st-round draft spot [as a junior]… not a rare occurrence for a BAMA DB…
