this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Per Bill Greene at Scout, Lattimore is a Glenville product (Ginn, home of Willie Henry/Frank Clark) and was ranked 22nd in the country overall in the new 2014 Scout 300. Already holds offers from Ohio State and USC among others.
Scouting Ohio Film (2012):
Talk about an interesting event: The Kirk Herbstreit National Kickoff Classic is being played from Ohio Stadium on ESPN right now.
Glenville (OH) v. Camden County (GA) is the matchup. Obviously Glenville is a OSU pipeline and both teams have D1 players...
Wow, never thought I see those words come out of anyone's mouth with a straight face. That's Frank Clark, TE from Glenville, talking about his visit on the 21st today in an espn insider article.
I hope this is a good sign going forward for us having a shot at future Glenville prospects.
I know this kind of stuff at Glenville is not news to us, but Sam Webb reported this morning on WTKA that two 2011 UM football recruits at Cleveland Glenville were supposed to have received UM offers from RR via the fax machine at the high school. When UM contacted the two recruits (sorry, don't remember their names but it will be on the podcast I assume), they both said that neither knew anything about a fax, and that nothing had been given to them by the adults at the school. They subsequently received their UM offers via snail mail. Webb was very careful to say that this was all a coincidence, but he was speaking very tongue-in-cheek. One missing fax is a mistake, but two is proof enough that the school officials themselves are taking direct steps to aid OSU and hamper Michigan.
I wonder if any high school in Michigan would even think about doing the same to OSU faxes.
HUMONGOUS (6' 5" 355) tackle Aundrey Walker has been offered a scholarship by the University of Michigan. He's a Glenville product who's offers are just starting to roll in. He has stated that he wants to go to the same school as a few of his 2011 teammates if possible. Michigan doesn't have much of a chance unless they somehow break the Glenville - OSU pipeline.
