does anybody have n e information on any recruits?... or any prospects about to visit??
Yea I have a lot of information....
Is there anything specific you'd like to know?
if theres and new prospects... and/or a visit list.. the most info the better.. thanx!!
I'm still not sure what you want specifically, but here's some pertinent stuff for the present:
- Rich Rodriguez and Coach Dews took a visit to Cass Tech today, and is having an in home visit with all 3 boys, Will, Teric, and Thomas Gordon.
- Donovan Tate said he's not going to take anymore visits, he's still going to have the coaches visit him though (I don't know what's going on with him, I'm still nervous about the MLB draft)
- Je'Ron Stokes isn't visiting this weekend as of now.
- This weekend will be a big visit for us, and a lot of snake oil could be spread around. Outside receivers, commits, Pernell McPhee is supposed to be there, Santa Claus, pretty much everyone.
- Taylor Lewan had to reschedule his visit because his team is in the finals. I might go to their game, because I think it's at Sun Devil Stadium (ASU). I'll let you know.
Not sure what else you'd like to know....
There's not going to be a lot of noise right now, we'll have to wait until after this weekend, then after the AA game, then signing day.
what recruits r visiting this weekend??
They keep changing, but for now it's......
- Will "the thrill" Campbell
- Teric Jones
- Thomas Gordon
- Fitzgerald Touissant
- Ike Bell
- Justin Turner
- Jamal Patterson
- Pernell McPhee
- Donovan Tate (was supposed to, but I don't think he is)
- Je'Ron Stokes (isn't visiting anymore)
i am getting nervous that he still hasn't committed yet. florida is who i am worried about b/c he seems to fit perfecty in DC charlie strong's scheme. we desperately need a gamechanger like him (not a knock on vlad/bell/jones or redshirt frosh smith). i hope ricardo keeps chatting in his ear and Rich Rod makes him a priority. what are your thoughts?
in other places (maybe even here too, i don't recall) that M-Rob is a silent verbal to Michigan at this point. And Tom, on Donovan Tate, I am 99 percent confident he's going to MLB. Just a gut feeling. He'll be a high draft pick, and I look forward to tracking his rise through the minors as well. Maybe he'll get picked by the Tigers!
Don't expect a commitment from MRob anytime soon. He seems committed to riding out the entire process and in interviews he is only naming four favorites: Florida, North Carolina, The Worst School on Planet Earth, and The Greatest. This should in no way diminish Michigan's fans excitement about him. But just be patient b/c he is going to go through the process.
And you're right, I have zero confidence about Donovan Tate ending up in Ann Arbor. Or any other school, at least for football.
a commitment from M-Rob. Like I said though, I've heard he's a silent verbal.
On Tate, you say you're not confident he'll land at any other school "at least for football." I'm fairly certain he's not going to any school period. I believe he'll skip college completely and head straight to pro baseball where he'll make an excellent prospect. Supposed to be a top-10 draft pick in 2009.
All I'm going to say is I'm not nervous.
Thanks for your constant info. FYI - my grandfather has worked the UM games for 62 years now (50 yard line) and I was born on campus. So the blood is thick. However living in Midland, Tx now I only get extremely bias info from my "Pops" so getting real useful info from you and Brian is huge. Thanks for what yall do.
What does your pops think of Rich Rod?
Pops was a huge Lloyd guy but will never forget the way Bo energized the team, stadium, program. He loved what the non-Michigan man did for the university. He thinks it was time for another "Bo-like" guy to get us back on track. He believes the guy has what it takes to turn the around.
Is there a good chance of anyone new committing after visiting this weekend?
There's always a chance, but I doubt it. I think the guys coming in, that aren't M commits, will take their time, and take some other visits. Pernell McPhee maybe, because of what happened at Miss. State. I just don't see Jamal Patterson making a jump decision like that, unless he's wowed, which could happen I guess.
What about a Will Campbell recommitment? If he is planning on enrolling early wouldn't he have to decide in the next two weeks?
He might tell the coaches somewhat soon, but he's announcing officially at the AA game in January.
Regale our new compatriot tales of the Great White Hope.
Don't read into anything about leaders. He's milking the process for what it's worth.
And as for OSU pursuing him - he told them to stop a while ago. He's already made his decision. He's in it for the free trips now.
I'm not questioning you as a source, but I'm just curious of who/what your source is.
