Behind a pay wall at Rivals, but Gardner made it official: Go Blue.
spoiler alert: i linked this
I'm pretty sure the article is free.
I just stop trying to read stories at Rivals because 90% of them are behind walls. I assumed this one was the same. Apologies.
I think this kid will be really good at football.
I think this kid will be tremendous at football.
I'm tickled to death this kid will be playing for Michigan.
ps i think it's sweet that he committed even with two good young QBs just a year ahead of him.
He did say he liked the color red growing up...that's probably a good thing since that's what color his shirt will be for a year I bet.
He's slow, Tate is obviously 400 times faster than him. Why would CoachRod waste a scholarship on someone who doesn't run a 4.2 40?
too tall, and from too close to Ann Arbor
This is a very good thing.
But on a serious note. I believe Devin Gardner to be the most important pick-up in this class. Good job RR! He will look great with a winged helmet on!
I would say that a redshirt for Devin is likely, but does he then push for playing time? Even if he doesn't he'll have two years untill Denard is done, then two years to play.
We still have a ways to go before he signs that letter of intent. We'll see how Blue he is.
He's the future of U.M. football, RR has to keep him blue, no?
we were gonna have to battle for this guy. This is a great pickup, obviously, and anti-climatic, which is how I likes my commitments
The lack of a battle might be due to UM being a great prospect for any talented dual threat quarterback right now (or, before this commitment at least). This is a top-notch program that is thin at the QB position (QBs that fit the system). Therefore, we are a good prospect for a good dual threat QB prospect. I think he made a very good strategic move by jumping in early before another talented dual threat QB jumped in.
26 touchdowns in the air. 22 touchdowns on the ground. As a high school junior QB? That is exciting stuff.
If remember correctly Tebow in his Heisman year had stats similar to that. Seems like it was a combined 50 or 52, something like that. I will not say that he wins the Heisman just something to think about.
He's coming from a great HS coach, learned a ton at camp, will come to M camp, his mechanics will improve quite a bit, right?
He's fun to watch, glad he's coming.
