It's sad what you say, but I'm going through a lot of what you did. Keeping your core together is key, so I understand and don't blame you at all. It's gotten to the point that getting together with family for Christmas has been such a pain that it's no longer worth it and I threaten to take my wife and kids skiing out West or up to Montana for a fishing trip. It stinks, but I get it man.
I would agree with this under normal circumstances... Because Mac has proven to be a very good option and the #1 overall player is coming in at his position... But shit, Mac was in the same type of situation just a few years ago. Most kids would probably be looking elsewhere, but his pops will call the shot. Whatever he decides, it will be a principled approach which is something you have to love about that family.
From a hometown point of view (only), that will be what we're watching. Sawyer Pate guided THS to a state championship. Because he's played behind Lia for two years, he never received a D1 offer. Gus gave him a preferred walk-on offer; Pate grew up a barner, so he took it. Bo Pix is not going to relinquish his starting position, but in two years, it might be interesting to see what role Pate has on the team.
I'm not basing my opinion on anything else other than that family dynamic. After reading and listening to how they are, my bet would be that wherever Tua gets drafted is where the entire family will move and Baby Tua will transfer close to wherever that is.
