There are rumors that Anthony Fera is going to or already has decommitted. Anyone hearing the same? Looks like I picked the wrong season to quit sniffing glue.
you quit sniffing glue?
You picked the wrong week dude. He's solid thus far. Took a visit to another school a while ago but solid since then.
It's not coming from the site itself, but sounds like someone with some good info. If not, he did a good job causing a shitstorm.
I've also heard rumors that he's gone.
why are you getting worked up for a kicker? Yes, he might be one of the best kickers, but he is still just a kicker.
Don't need no stinkin' kicker. Go for 2 instead of kicking the PAT.
Or maybe Carson Butler could do it?
have you seen our kicking game the last few years?? we need a kicker.
StevieY19, do you like movies about gladiators?
We all know to be a good kicker at michigan, you must be an overwhelmingly fat white guy.
Yep, Fera is gone. Tough times right now.
That he decommitted in their header...
I'm not freaking out (I'll wait til after signing day to do that), but boy there's seems to be a lot of switching going on this year. Is it just because guys are committing too early anymore?
Brendan Gibbons come on down.
At least he decommited relatively early, rather than waiting a day before signing day and all the decent kickers would be locked up
what is scout and rivals actually saying about the decommit?
There are more rumors about Shavodrick Beaver and Dewayne Peace possibly taking visits elsewhere. Seriously, anybody that thought that its "okay" that we have a terrible year and expect recruits to just ignore it are crazy. Like it or not, Fat Charlie has Super Bowl rings to flash at recruits. That's why Notre Dame can get away with it and still pull in a top class. Rich Rod doesn't have that luxury. The negative recruiting that other schools are using against the spread-option (zone read) offense isn't helping, either.
i said the same thing at the beginning of year but eeeeveryone said there was no way it could happen.
I really thought Fera brought ALOT to the table. He will be missed. And by the way, a great kicker is a big deal and this is a loss.
is really disturbing. I know its only a kicker, but he will be the third decommit so far and I have heard those rumors about Peace as well. I think this bad of a year is going to bite us in the ass if we don't beat a few more people. If we finish 2-10, I think we will lose a lot more guys.
I was excited about Fera coming in. I know Rivas had a decent rating for a kicker, but Fera would be the best one we've had in a long time. I don't know how many times I've wondered why Michigan could never seem to get an elite kicker. This sucks. Had to be Joe Pa's line at the end of the BTN commercials.
According to Rivals Penn State page, Fera just committed to them.
Fera says his heart is with Penn State. His dad says it has nothing to do with us being 2-5.
I heard a week or so ago Shavodrick Beaver was getting soft. Now, much more recently I'm hearing even stronger rumors that he will decommit very soon, like within the next week or two. If he does, hopefully we'll have a shot at Eugene Smith or even Boyd.
