So after the game, all the students rushed the court and started chanting "it's great to be a michigan wolverine". I turn around, and who do I see next to me? Will Campbell, joining along in the cheering (Dude is huge!). Before I had a chance to say anything, the person next to me asks Will if he is coming to Michigan. Will just smiles and nods his head "yeah". There was another recruit next to Will joining in the cheering, too. Was Taylor Lewan there? He looked like an athletic o-lineman.
Big Will ;)
Great to hear. Hope that he does, confident he will.
Jealous that you were at that game!
pics or shens
i am skeptical
Lewan is scheduled to be in next week.
I don't mean to be crass or insensitive, but the guy you saw next to Will celebrating, was he black? Because William Gholston was there too and apparently was getting into the atmosphere, and he fits the bill of a big athletic guy, except he's black, and Lewan is white.
He was white. There might have been a 3rd guy with them but I can't remember.
there were a few in attendance, and I am guessing they probably joined in the celebrations.
Are you the same person who posted this on the Scout board?
No, I hate the scout board. There was a bunch of people there so I'm not suprised someone else posted it.
The only question is was he serious or just wanting to have fun after the game and not be a negative Nancy.
you are right.
scenario as far as a non-football activity to take recruits to. Hyped fans, beating Duke, rushing the court.
IMO probably the best game to bring a recruit to so far this year. wisconsin was good but we had a terrible 1st half, we played a great game the whole day against duke and the crowd was way in it. if you're a recruit it has to be impossible to not like us more after seeing that game
i was there too...and i told will campbell to come to michigan
so if he comes, its all cuz of me....o yea, and the u of m team shitting on DUKE!!!
How did he respond? If you are serious, that is.
You're not really serious are you?
This is legit; my buddy and I just got back from dinner (hence just now checked MGoBlog) where we talked about him seeing Big Will and hearing him chant. Nobody I know talked to him though.
Good stuff. Real good stuff.
What does Dandy Don say?
That the guy was a Will Campbell body double planted there by Les Miles. He is there to trick us into thinking Big Will is coming and to dissuade others, such as Quinton Washington, from coming.
I hope this story is true, it would be huge for the wolverine family. I remember when i came on my recruiting visits with my brothers to the Michigan vs Ohio State and Michigan vs. Little brother, those two games really convinced me to come here. I remember my two brothers (who also went to UofM)and I running on the field and chanting "Its great to be a michigan wolverine" after we beat Ohio State, next to Gabe Watson who is also huge. Ill never forget that feeling.
Are you Chris Forcier?
I just talked to Will Campbell, and they did rush the court with everyone, and they were chanting. He also asked me a question in regards to where the female species hang out on UM's campus. He's hanging out with Brandon Graham tonight.
LOL, now that's the kind of crucial information you take OFFICIAL visits to Michigan to find out about!
If we want Big Will to commit on the spot, all we need to do is find David Oku's "hostess" from Tennessee, pronto.
["I have a lovely hostess who's showing me everything," Oku said when asked of the trip's highlights. "She's been lovely and I appreciate her.
"If I wasn't with her, it probably wouldn't be as fun as it is."]
if hes hanging with bg tonight hes def gettin' some
I hope you gave him some good advice
"He also asked me a question in regards to where the female species hang out on UM's campus."
Uh...the Vu? East Lansing?
Sweet. I hope Brandon Graham can pull him in for good.
I was there as well on the court next to him. He was having himself a good time.
For recruits to be in town and get a wonderful non-football experience to show them what Michigan is all about. The combo of Sims & Harris is definitely a good one. Thanks boys for pulling through this weekend - we needed that.
Big Will is going to LSU. Dandy Don said so.
look for a black coat. With a big black man in it.
Uh, not to be racist or anything, but if you're talking about the "big black man" in the "black coat" that shows up around the middle of that video...
...looks more Brandon Graham to me than Will Campbell.
that's totally BG
No way dude, that's totally LaMarr Woodley. Or no, I think it's Tyrone Wheatley. Oh shit, I think that was actually Chris Webber or Glenn Rice!
I thought it was Wesley Snipes.
And that is totally Brandon Graham.
And I only say racist things.
I knew I recognized him from somewhere.
Actually, it was Jazzy Jeff.
No, im not him, ill just say my team went to the sweet 16. Im not trying to sound cool or anything, but we had a great year. I should have posted on here so we could have gotten more people to come out to the games though.
Are you Marosevic? That guy was awesome to watch this year.
Though he was far from the only one, you guys had a great season.
Was worse than watching Cloverfield until the very end when the camera stopped going all over the damn place.
I am the kid who asked Will Campbell if he was coming to Michigan at the Duke game Saturday. Our conversation:
Me: Hey, Will...you coming to Michigan baby?
Handshake and hug
Will: I am making my announcement at the All-American Game? (Big grin on his face)
Me: Alright man
He then began jumping with the other recruits to It's great to be a michigan wolverine.
I think it's a good sign. He was on the edge of his seat the whole game, unlike Mr. Texting Fiend himself Terrelle Pryor last year against Iowa.
question. Did you happen to see how William Gholston was enjoying the game? Was he into it, or did he just kinda sit there like TP.
William Gholston said that the game was crazy. That was pretty much it. FWIW.
as well and was jumping up and down and all that. i'm thinking he just got caught in the moment but it's a good sign nonetheless.
To be honest I didn't recognize Gholston. He wasn't sitting in the first row with the 09 commits, but I guess there is a pic of him on the court with BG that Brian put up, although he is looking down (texting maybe...in a mosh pit).
Ok so don't kill me for this but I have no idea who William Gholston is, and I looked on rivals and couldn't find anything, unless his name is really Alvin. How many stars is this kid? What position? I'm guessing he is somehow related to that dreaded Vernon..
He's Vernon's cousin, DE class of 2010.
Oh Thanks. He better not go to Michigan State..
