Cherries have pits known to contain cyanide. Not enough to make you sick if consumed, but nasty none the less.
Sticking with the fruit analogy, "one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch."
Why not.

So PDave, what you are saying is that the coaches didn't recognize the potential problems and failed to move on from a kid they shouldn't have been recruiting whereas I was saying they failed to close on the kid. A miss defined two different ways, but a miss nonetheless. Either way, we can agree we are both excited about the guys they did get, and just saddened they didn't land that cherry on top kid.
I think what may have happened to some extent is that our coaches could see he was talented and pursued him. With a very good class already signed they were about adding depth and value. When guys decided to transfer there were more spots to fill and they were going after talented kids. Then I think they got caught up in the recruiting battle and were just trying to close the deal. The corona virus screwed up the visits and the decision was delayed. As time went by it began to seem that there was reason for concern but nothing glaring, no major red flags. The kid just didn't seem like he really wanted to be here. That's when I really began to feel we'd be better off w/o him. I don't blame Coach Weber and the other recruiters. to the contrary I thank them and congratulate them for there amazing efforts and accomplishments on the recruiting trail.

Texas only has 1 spot open I believe, and they think they are getting the 9th player in the nation in Greg Brown. So he couldn't choose UT until that was decided. He was their backup plan.
And Greg Brown picked Texas.
