Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
According to Scout.com, Iowa pulled their scholarship offer to Braylon's little brother Berkley Edwards.
"They said if Berkley didn't choose Iowa by now, he wasn't coming," Stan Edwards said in a text message.
Stan Edwards said on Monday that he and his family were waiting to see what happened with the coaching situations at the schools he was considering - Iowa, Cal and Minnesota. The Bears fired Jeff Tedford a day later.
It looks like the Gophers or a MAC offer for the 2013 Chelsea (MI) High running back unless Cal stays with the recruitment.
I know Michigan doesn't have any serious interest in him at this point, but hopefully he ends up at a quality school where he can get some playing time. He definitely put up some nice numbers for Chelsea the last couple years.
Just wanted to pass this note along regarding Braylon.
1. Stan Edwards (Braylon's Dad) called into WDFN (small local Detroit sports radio station) today in the morning, and stated clearly and unequivocally that his son was not taking a shot at Richrod when he mentioned UM during the Jets game yesterday. He stated that along with many former players Braylon still works out at UM in the offseason and is pleased with Richrod in general.
[Now whether this is actually true, or a proud UM alum covering for mouthy son is not clear.]
2. It appears that Stan is also going to call into WTKA as well tomorrow morning...this was specifically mentioned by the host when Brian was on the station this afternoon. So we may get even more clarification at that time.
Just thought I would put that out there. No matter what Braylon's intention actually was, he had to have some idea this was going to at least stir things up...oh well, may the next story be something positive, we need it!
