Should be fun.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Where did you hear this?
Via Joseph Wilson, friend who goes to Miramar.
Can you confirm this Tom?
If you think WVU hates us now... imagine if we stole this kid
great if mr smith came to visit
I think someones trying to start more rumors and get our hopes up yet again!!
sorry, I'm not a recruitnik, but interested in the topic...
Eugene Smith is the #5 (I think) dual threat QB in the country. He's from Miramar, FL, and is currently committed to West Virginia. He was high on Michigan even when Michigan had two QB's committed, but he never pulled the trigger and opted for WVU. Now that things are shaky at QB for Michigan, we might try to get him back into the fold.
was he the kid that was involved in the brawl down there? I thought I remembered seeing video of that somewhere. Maybe it was a different kid....
I don't think so. I could be wrong, but I haven't heard anything about Eugene Smith getting in a brawl.
there was a brawl between his team and another at the end of his junior year, IIRC, and he got suspended for a game along with a dozen others.
his 40 time is 4.8?
I havent seen video on him, just asking.
It's listed at 4.8, but considering a lot of players list a 4.6 when they actually run a 4.8, I think Smith's is probably just truthful. I've watched his highlight films, and he plays faster than that.
But I have a feeling the coaching staff wouldn't invite Robinson and Smith in for the same weekend.
"First one that commits gets to wear #2"!
No way anyone gets to wear #2, not after McGuffie. They should retire the #2 jersey right now!
#3 would be the new #2....
Look for Justin Turner to make a play for that number. Woodson was his favorite player. He also maybe awarded a 5th star after his preformance in the Army Bowl.
On the topic of #s...Who do u think will wear the Holy #1 jersey next?
at the rate we're throwing the ball? Nobody for a while. If Stonum can't get it with Tate throwing him the ball the next 3-4 years, then I don't see who will...unless they lower the standards.
It will be Pryor.
I'm not comparing JT to CWood but watching him play kinda reminds me of Woodson, going to be fun to watch him play the next few years.

I don't and can not find any information to support Mr. Smith coming to Michigan. I almost looked for a
And then some gloating and basking and levitating at the end of this post. But I've been wrong before.
Like I said before I think someone is trying to start some more BS rumors!
He's listed as a "soft verbal" on Rivals and still has medium interest in Michigan. This would not surprise me at all not that Beaver is gone. He was high on Michigan back when we had Beaver and Newsome.
This weekends visitors are:
**** WR Cameron Gordon - committed
**** LB Barkevious Mingo
**** DE Sam Montgomery
**** OT Marcus Hall
**** Michael Schofield - committed
**** ATH Denard Robinson
(unrated!?) CB Adrian Witty
*** WR/ATH/QB(?) Travante Stallworth - Auburn commit
No Eugene Smith.
Wasn't Eugene Smith enrolling early at WVU?
I don't think he was enrolling early.
Oh - and Adrian Witty is Denard Robinson's best friend or something. He has 3 D1 offers - us, Kansas State, and Florida International.
Odds on RR holding up two LOI in front of Robinson and Stallworth and saying "who wants to play QB? come on...."
I really don't think either Stallworth or Michigan intends on Stallworth playing QB. He's pretty much a WR - Auburn's QB depth chart consisted of a kleenex and a puppy, and they didn't entertain the idea.
well in that case we better focus on getting Pryor...
expected to commit this weekend?
I don't know when we could expect a commitment, but from what I read:
Mingo is extraordinarily unlikely to commit to Michigan.
Hall is extremely unlikely to commit to Michigan.
Montgomery is unlikely to commit to Michigan.
There is something of a chance Robinson commits to Michigan (though it seems like we have to sell him on the fact that we'd give him a fair shake at QB)
Travante Stallworth seems somewhat likely to end up at Michigan.
Witty is probably 100% contingent upon Robinson. If we didn't get Robinson, I would imagine we would revoke our offer to Witty.
Guys over at Scout have debunked the "Eugene Smith visiting" rumor.
