    I think you nailed it.

    The 2014 #1 QB recruit Kyle Allen surprised everyone today and with no deadline just announced on Twitter that he has committed to play at Texas A & M.Interesting timing with Kohl Stewart and his advisors attempts at leverage and such.May not have an impact but everything does just 3 days before the draft.

    Most experts said Stewart wouldn't turn down first round money to hold a clip board behind Johnny M. Now this. I see no way he doesn't sign now.

    Exactly, I think he would of signed no matter what but he was playing the "Im going to play Football" angle to get some leverage in the negotiations. All this did was give him less leverage. Maybe the school was mad because they knew he wasnt gonna attend so they got back at him by announcing this several days before the draft?

    The timing of this is weird, to say the least. Maybe Allen just really doesn't like Stewart?

    Yesterday was a pretty crummy day for Stewart. First, Keith Law goes upstream of previous reports and says Stewart could fall as #18 if he's not taken at #4. Then this, which surely decreases Stewart's leverage.

    With both of those scenarios, it could be that if the Twins draft Stewart with #4, he signs for less than slot, leaving them some extra money for the next couple of rounds.

    Or maybe the QB that committed wanted to undercut his possible competition. Sounds more likely than the school retaliating against a potential player who hasn't decommitted yet.

    Wow the conspiracy theories are flying! I think it's most likely the QB commit waited until he finished his junior year then spent a few days figuring out what he wanted to do with his future. He probably just didn't want this hanging over his head during his senior year. College football recruiting is incredibly time consuming and invasive. There are kids who just want to get it over with. My guess he doesn't really care what Stewart does.

    I also don't really buy this lowering Stewart's leverage. He still has a scholarship. He can still make the choice to go to college. Nothing has changed.

    With the #1 recruit I don't think Texas A&M is doing this to throw Stewart under the bus by any means. Every football team is trying to get the #1 QB recruit in that class every year. It does hurt Stewart though, probably quite a bit, he goes from having solid leverage to little.
