USC RB Amir Carlisle will transfer to Notre Dame from USC and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2013 season. Rivals had him listed as a 4 star coming out of high school.
He was born in Evanston, so transferring to be closer to home.
So, I'm officially confused. Apparently Tate will not transfer to Miami (YTM) after all. Due to personal reasons. It's a short article that doesn't propose what else he would do. Any word on what Tate will be up to?
A former Colerain High School football star has been arrested on allegations of burglary. Mister Simpson, 23, of Mount Airy is accused is stealing four firearms and a pair of night-vision goggles from a home in Green Township on Jan. 1.He was arrested in Colerain Township on Wednesday when a car he was riding in was stopped and police say they found the weapons in the trunk and a shotgun shell inside Simpson’s left coat pocket. Police say he confessed to the crime.Bond was set at $5,000 on Thursday when he made his first appearance in a courtroom at the Hamilton County Justice Center.In 2008, Simpson was arrested with former Colerain teammate, Terrill Byrd, an All-American defensive tackle, on drug abuse charges. Simpson was cited and paid a fine.Simpson was a top-rated senior recruit running back on the Cardinals 2004 state title team. He signed with Michigan after high school but was red-shirted in 2005.His prospects of playing for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats were dashed a few years later when he learned that he was academically ineligible to play football.
I wanted to create a post that could operate as the first in a series of of entries that highlighted those commit/transfer decisions that had significant career/financial ramifications. This is not intended to be a "LOL you didn't go to UM and now you SUXORZ" but, rather, the beginning of a log of those who fans wanted to suit up in maize and blue and who chose less green pastures.
It will be updated, with a write-up, based upon comment suggestions. As such, I really encourage people to write-in so these become Community pieces and not a GB piece.
Because the flashiest always goes first
By his own admission, Pryor likely missed out on the chance to make tangible history when he chose to go tOSU. While he has been to a bowl game every year, it was Denard, not Pryor, who broke the NCAA record books this season. Meanwhile, back at the Columbus ranch, TP (T Profit for short) has put up decent numbers in an offense that for all intents and purposes limits him and forces him to utilize his weakest abilities (pocket passing).
Minor occurrences have taken place featuring Pryor in bars or flashing jewelry/cars that have failed to allow allegations by Clarett to disappear regarding OSU recruitment/player care. What's more, maturity issues on the field and off have raised questions about his leadership abilities at a school that, for all intents and purposes, does not have a historical encyclopedia of "field generals" (with some exceptions, such as Laurinaitis, Spielman, etc.)
Slowly languishing in Tressel ball over three years, Pryor has failed to live up to perhaps unfairly tall expectations. Now that a garage sale of fail has led to him being suspended for the first games, the Buckeye passer appears set to either go into the NFL draft with an unheralded college season in which he was not named to the All Big Ten team (and perhaps sit around for a year during labor talks) or play a shortened schedule with OSU sitting potentially at 3-2 before he comes off the bench. In short: has failed to become the next/best Vince Young.
The Detroit News is reporting that former Alabama redshirt RB Mike Marrow is transferring to Eastern Michigan over offers from Michigan and Wisconsin (among others).
Is this real or is Marrow trying to make it sound like he had more interest from big time programs than he really did? According to Rivals Michigan wasn't in play with Marrow back in 2009 so I would be surprised if we were actively involved in recruiting this transfer now.
Players that have transfered, left, or entered the nfl draft from 2007...Ryan Mallet, Tony Clemons, Donovan Warren, Artis Chambers, Vince Helmuth, Avery Horn, Zion Babb. This has hurt Michigan in 2008, 2009, but how bad will it still affect 2010. Im hoping not much, but we will see. PS Donavon Warren is the only cool person on the list, kinda.
