As I was reading Varsity Blue today, I noticed today's entry talked about how UM could get several more commits. Does anybody know what recruits will be at the game and which are likely to commit? Thanks for the help in advance.
Question: Recruits at spring game?
Stephen Hopkins will be there and mat commit if he likes how he is going to be used. I know a bunch of the instate guys like mylan hicks will be there,\.
That bodes well for UM considering he'll get a great look at his type of role with Minor getting the majority of snaps. Hopkins looks pretty legit, I'd love to see him commit to UM.
Hicks won't commit at the game.
It's never set in stone, but some of the names I believe are scheduled as of now to be there:
Ricardo Miller will also be there, and I'm sure a bunch of the usual suspects from instate will be there as well.
that's a good line-up. you think we have a legitimate shot of any of them committing while there?
same question by the way does anyone know who latwans top 3 were? Sorry dont have rivals account.
In no order, it's Michigan, Michigan State and West Virginia.
With his high school destination in flux though, who knows. If he goes to Glenville and he's a legit top 100 player like Rivals claims he is, wouldn't be a surprise to see Ohio State replace Michigan on that list.
There have been hints that M-Rob might take the plunge the next time he's in AA. I wouldn't be waiting for it, though.
I could see a commitment from a guy like Pace, maybe. Other than that, I tend to lean toward no other commitments. Of course it's possible that there's someone I missed or one of the guys I DID list is just blown away.
Overall though, with the emphasis RR and staff are putting into the entire atmosphere and magnitude of the Spring Game, I definitely expect all the recruits there to give glowing reviews about their visits, and I'd bet some of the ones in attendance will sign on the dotted line for Michigan next February.
Marvin's coach is getting in the way again.
Are you free to elaborate?
I think I heard somewhere that his coach is a Buckeye fan or something.
Big, BIG Buckeye supporter.
We need to get Ricardo to bring M-Rob to Huron with him.
Or just have this idiot coach killed by live wolverines. Either way.
Before we crucify the coach, I'd like to hear his reasoning for wanting Marvin to go to OSU. As much as I'd like him to to go to Michigan, it's not exactly an evil thing for a high school coach to suggest to one of his players that he should take a long, hard look at a premiere top five program in the nation that has put quite a few defensive players in the NFL during Jim Tressel's regime and is also consistently playing in BCS games at the end of the year. Let's not sit here and act like OSU would be a terrible choice for a top recruit play at.
He's not looking out for Marvin, he's looking out for the school he's a fan of. He's a Buckeye, and he wants his star player to be a Buckeye, and he basically threatened to bench Marvin during the playoffs last year if he committed to Michigan when he visited for the MSU game.
So yeah, he deserves to be crucified. Coaches that try to blatantly steer players to THEIR school of choice don't deserve the benefit of the doubt. And don't bring up Thomas Wilcher, unless there's a big mixup and Joseph Barksdale is entering his 3rd year in the Michigan program and we're all looking for Youtube videos of Vernon Gholston's stellar UM career.
just tell his coach to fuck off?
According to Scout, Clay almost committed to Oregon after he received his offer.
great pick-up. Another road grader for the interior line.
He appears to be a Miami lock. But, I guess anything can happen.
I have heard from the infamous "someone" that Ricardo Miller will be travelling with M-Rob and Lo Wood.
Are as good as the paper they're written on. I am a lot more comfortable when those LOI's are announced on signing day.
Who isn't more comfortable when the LOIs are signed?
I'm more comfortable with the verbal commits. Those are rock-solid.
