Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
For those that don't tweet I will share a link to the picture I was sent from the BBQ of all the commitments together, including Wormley. Before you ask, far left is Bo Dever walk on receiver.
(If this picture gets posted anywhere else without the link to TwitPic it needs to be removed. This was sent to me personally and not intended to be used anywhere else.)
I thought I'd create a thread for this just to do a mini update for now. The BBQ is from 11-3 today. Some recruits area already there, some are still on their way.
Here's an updated list of visitors that I have confirmed. Caleb Stacey sent me a text saying he decided not to go because he has two a days tomorrow, and he was likely going to be Kaleb Ringer's ride so he's not going either. Not a big deal, but Ringer sent me a text that said he would have really liked to hang out with the recruits.
Monty Madaris isn't coming, so my note about Michigan having the potential to get a wide receiver soon will probably be pushed back. I'm not expecting anything out of Chesson today, but visits can sometimes change things so never say never. He told me he would still like to take some more visits. Michigan is in good shape with both Madaris and Amara Darboh right now too, so we'll see how everything plays out.
There is potential for a few things to happen today. Key word is potential. There is a chance with Pipkins, Wormley (don't be surprised if he doesn't do it today), and 2013 DB Dymonte Thomas said he's thinking about things. I wouldn't be surprised if he waited, but he did tell me that he really likes it at Michigan so we'll see.
I'm also not expecting anything from the other 2013 kids. WR LaQuon Treadwell told me that he would probably wait if Michigan offers him today. He want to talk it over with his mom first. Wyatt Shallman said he's also likely going to wait awhile before making a decision.
Like I said visits can change things either way, so none of this is 100%. We'll se what ends up happening.
Article about the support Kelly is getting from admissions and the school administration to bring them back to glory:
"And it appears Kelly can get a player if Kelly wants a player. That perhaps is no departure from indulgences that brought, say, Tony Rice to campus for Lou Holtz — but, again, Holtz never enjoyed Kelly's total package of resources and breaks elsewhere to amplify the admissions concessions."
I just received my tickets this year, and next year would like to upgrade my seats, cost be damned. Has anyone upgrades over the last year or two? What is the process like?
This is a huge signing for the Lions, hopefully Stafford can stay healthy and they should be able to fight for a playoff spot. All they need is to resign Houston or get another decent corner and I will be happy with the makeup of this team for now.
