I'm sure there will be more mudslinging from this one.
EDIT: For those who didn't click the link, he says that JH says they didn't know if they would have room for him and ultimately offered him a PWO. He does thank JH and UofM for the opportunity. Not as bad as Swenson, but some will overreact to it.
It's that time of year.
He has offers from Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and LSU, among others. The favorites as of now are Alabama and Florida.
Being a Detroit-based Buckeye, I tend to follow recruiting for both the Bucks and Wolverines. I am finding it kind of strange that Michigan does not have any Ohio recruits in this class. I am not even fully aware of any Ohio guys that they recruited heavily. I am just curious as to everyone's opinion on this.
1) Urban Meyer has a total lockdown on the state of Ohio ? That seems to be the popular consensus amongst Buckeye fans.
2) Harbaugh hates Ohio so much he doesn't want to spend a lot of time recruiting the state or doesnt want a lot of native Ohioans on the roster ? The claim of some of my Wolverine friends.
I personally think the truth lies somewhere in the middle but maybe a little more heavily weighted towards #1. Harbaugh is no idiot and would take a good player from Ohio if he were to have the opportunity. However, I also get the impression that with Urban's current success (against Michigan) & popularity (in Ohio), Harbaugh has easier pickings nationally and doesnrt need to rely on Ohio as much as Hoke did.
NJ DB Jordan Fuller will announce his college decision via "commitment video" next Monday. Here's to picking the good guys!
EDIT: Connor Murphy tweets that he will be announcing on NSD.
It's been 24 hours since the weekend edition, and going down the final crazy stretch might be close to time to putting one up daily. (Shouldn't need 1 tomorrow though as Wednesday seems to be next stretch of activity)
Since yesterday's guestimate - 3 new commits. Add those commits to guys most feel lean strongly blue (5 trusted agents) and you are at the 30 limit.
Michael Dwumfour Elysee Mbem-Bosse Joshua Uche
Then we remove the 3 decommits and that opens the final 3 spots that we need to stuff a lot of people in. I consider Nate Johnson out of the class with the avalanche of Notre Dame ballz, while Sam labeled Elliott "50/50.... at best" this morning. Which doesn't make him a commit anymore to me - just someone we are going after and at best have a coin flip chance.
So that leaves this chart. I've added "potential trusted agents" at the bottom - of those Brian has deemed both Murphy and Nordin as a "surprise to shock" if not in final class. So that would leave 1 spot for everyone else. Hudson will let us know Wednesday if he is to be trusted.
Still foggy on Dytarious Johnson's inclusion in the class.
