Peppers at 10, which seems low.
IMO, he is a must-have if for no reason other than this:
For my commitment day, I just want to have it at my school. I'm not going to have three hats. I'm going to have one hat. I'm gonna call the coaches the night before. Tell them what school I'm going to and that's it.I'd love to know who made the M. Jackson statement

Sam Webb does a very nice ARTICLE on Jabrill Peppers's background. Many of the general points are known (esp. re: Peppers's dad), but a very worthwhile read all the same. He discusses his commitment freestyle, as well as several deeper matters.
My favorite observation from Peppers re: Michigan's football program?
Michigan provided an ideal mix of all of those attributes, but there was one specific trait that allowed the Wolverines to distinguish themselves tangibly from their opposition. The ability of the players and coaches to connect with Peppers during his early April visit to Ann Arbor was summed up in one memorable statement.
"Real recognizes real," Peppers said afterward.
Just a quick wallpaper I worked on tonight. It's not my favorite, but I'm pretty sure that's because my taste is changing slowly due to all the damn baby/portrait photography I'm doing at the moment. Anyway, it's a neat look for Fitz, who, having DIED (I can only assume an injury as brutal as his caused his demise), has risen again as an undead running back of doom. Enjoy.
EDIT: I don't normally put these in the board, but since the substance was so minimal for this wallpaper (no, I'm not doing a mobile version), I figured it was best to not be a diary. Feel free to move, mods, as you are omnipotent on these pages. Also, not sure whether this should be OT...?
Da'Shawn Hand has earned his second invite to The Opening.
Drake Harris has also has an invite this year. I tried to find who else has earned an invite but couldn't find anything.
Hand quote on Peppers after watching his film:
"He's a freak. Oh my goodness, he's a competitor."
Edit: Ian Bunting has also been invited.
I know that it had been speculated previously on this here board but according to this report, an announcement will be made tomorrow wherein the Pinstripe Bowl will officially become part of the Big Ten's bowl rotation for 2014.
