and... i like them? I think I like them.
Not much there, but it's more positive than earlier reports..
Nothing good comes from tweeting at recruits. If you have something to say, please refrain from doing so. You would think this is obvious, but some people still don't understand this.
Just spoke with Damien Harris' coach, he had a message he was adamant that I tweet to Michigan fans.— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) January 21, 2014
"People need to back off of [Damien]. People are attacking him and the fans better ease up or they're going to push him away from Michigan."— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) January 21, 2014
Harris' coach said the only impact a fan can have on a prospect's recruitment is a negative one. Apparently Michigan fans have been nasty.— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) January 21, 2014
Per the twitters. No Michigan offer and there really was no mutual interest. This kid hails from our Cass Tech pipeline that will likely be owned by our Little Brother in 2015.
Just posted on Rivals message board. Mike Weber (Cass Tech RB) in an interview with InsideTenn blog:
"Up there it's just football, but down here it means so much more. There's a different passion about the sport and I love that."
"All the coaches here make you feel like family," Weber said. "They made sure I felt like I was at home."
"I don't have a decision or time table right now," he said. "I'm just taking my process. Tennessee is the top school right now. Wherever I go I want to come in and help the University the best way I can to win and win bowl games."
"The facility is crazy," the 5-foot-10, 185-pound back said. "It's by far one of the best, if not the best one I've seen so far. I can really see myself here because it would be a good fit for me. The weight room really stuck out to me."
FYI - It could be Mike putting out quotes to see if Michigan comes calling after the Harris commitment per Tim Sullivan
