    I’ve been scrolling through the pages here of white players whom are getting intentionally slighted and pushed away and then going over to 247 to see the pics. Many of them have a darkened out picture and very little data. Accident? Hell no!

    Here’s an example.

    Cole, Oil City Look to Continue Record-Setting Role Against Slippery Rock

    OIL CITY, Pa. (EYT) – Averaging 306.3 yards per game, Oil City running back Christian Cole is having a season for the ages.

    The Oilers running back has rushed for 2,450 yards on the season and has a good shot at the District 10 record of 2,934 yards set in 2013 by Blake Reddick, who was coached by current Oil City head coach Dan York.

    Thanks but I didn’t say there wasn’t anything online at all. The link I posted has zilch except for a shaded non photo and 247 lists Cole as an OLB. There are numerous examples of the same shaded non photo with other white players too on 247

    Idk man that one sounds like a long shot, there's a whole lot of recruits with non-pictures like that when you get below 3-stars

    I agree with you, I just wanted to show who the prospect is. He seems to be a good one, but he's up against the caste system.

    I think you are hitting on the issue...so many below three stars that get pushed out by hook or crook or coaches letting blacks threaten to break white kids legs etc. It happened to me but I had enough white friends off the field that had my back in fights. Plus I had already established a reputation of stomping mud holes. I had no choice because my dad would beat the hell outta me if I didn’t fight back. Hell he beat my ass many times when he got drunk so fighting was never a problem.

    Too many white kids aren't toughened up. MMA etc has helped the culture for white kids to fight.

    He does look legit and hopefully he’ll find the right coach to play under.

    More importantly, although he was a superb RB in high school, his profile on 247 shows him listed at the more caste-appropriate position of OLB. Rivals does this as well. If all things were the same, except him being black, he'd probably be a 4 or 5-star recruit at RB and have 40 offers.

    Yes, exactly. I mentioned they had Cole as an OLB and they do it all the time. They got the Connor kid as a safety. Same bs, different day.
