I'm going to wait and see how Matt Millen pronounces it and just go with that.
Brief Interview with Ray Vinopal
- Cardinal Mooney won the state championship, and Vinopal was just named First Team All State for Ohio as a safety.
- He is being recruited as a safety, but said he'll play wherever the coaches want him to.
- Coach Rodriguez and Gibson will be doing an in home visit with Ray and his family this Monday to make sure he knows important dates, and information, etc.
- He'll be taking an official visit sometime in January, the same time that DJ Williamson will be. Coach Gibson told him there will be around 5 others coming as well, but he wasn't sure who they were.
- "I told Coach Rod and Gibson on Wednesday, and they were excited. They just told me welcome to the family."
Nothing earth shattering, but good news on the first team all state award.
Hopefully we will get some good news out of this weekend, as well. Like I've said before, I think it's going to be an interesting next few months. As everyone knows, we have limited spots left, so we'll find out if there are any commits that won't qualify, or greyshirts, etc. soon.
the announcers at the Big Ten Network will come up with.
The possibilities are endless.
GREAT tackle on that play by, errr, Pope John Paul. Just a great all around effort. That guy is definitely a celebrant right now after that key play.
First Team All-State safety out of Ohio. Welcome to Michigan, Mr. Vinopal!! We're glad to have you.
run track? Keep a lookout, this spring and we'll have a better idea whether the time was a 2 fakes or 4 fakes.
but Dan LeFevour was a 2-star recruit.
I personally watched more than a handful of highly recruited guys fall by the wayside while lesser-knowns made huge contributions and went on to all Big10 and better honors. The biggest recruit my freshman year never saw his sophomore season. Once he got to campus, all he wanted to do was smoke cigarettes, drink Jack Daniels, and play guitar.
I try to take these recruiting sites and they're rankings with a grain of salt. One of the toughest, quickest kids in MI high school right now is nowhere to be seen on any recruiting boards. This kid had the quickest time in the nation for the 3-cone drill this year and hung with AWhite at every combine/camp they faced each other in (sans the 40). So.....
Please make sure to keep the name of the kid to yourself. We definitely don't like information around here.
is who you're obviously talking about:
"The biggest recruit my freshman year never saw his sophomore season. Once he got to campus, all he wanted to do was smoke cigarettes, drink Jack Daniels, and play guitar."
Not sure if he counts . . .
