A little something called "Spring ball"
Do we have any chance with Delvon Simmons?
Sorry for now knowing, but who is Delvon Simmons? I don't remember hearing about him. I know we're recruiting a guy named Jordan Simmons (and so is the rest of the world) but I don't know who Delvon is. Please inform, thanks.
He is a 2011 recruit who committed to North Carolina. I guess he never signed with them and is now looking at USC and Texas Tech (according to rivals).
Edit: It actually seems like he signed with them and asked to be released from his LOI.
But is there anything to indicate he has an interest in M? Says none at the Rivals link
TomVH - Greg Kuhar is a nationally ranked wrestler (Top Ten in his weight class). What is his likelyhood of choosing football over wrestling at the next level?
We've talked about wrestling, but he's never said anything about choosing that over football. As far as I can tell he's going for football.
Big name QB like Pike showing such interest. Also great that RJS is already heading back for a visit.
First we get Pike and then we get Diggs.
I really hope we can get both, but I really really hope we get Diggs and Brown.
Tom -- I thought that I heard that Chris was coming in. Any news on that?
Any word if the Pike visit will be longer than just one day? I know some recruits like to come at the end of the week to stay the weekend. Praying Pike stays Thur-Sat and commits to HOKEMANIA.
I believe he's visiting North Carolina over the weekend, so it will probably just be a short trip to Ann Arbor.
six to midnight
That is a nice list of recruits coming up this weekend. I really hope we can get some commits soon so that those guys can help recruit for us, just like Hayes and Miller have done the last couple classes. Thanks as always Tom for the updates.
Sam Webb said on his recruiting roundup that Wormley would be on campus this weekend as well! Sounds like they're pulling out all the stop sto get this kid in the Maize n Blue
That is confirmed with Chris, he will be there.
Great weekend set up, if this keeps up the Junior day should be outstanding
Finally some Chris Wormley news.
Add Kaleb Ringer to list according to Sam Webb.
Wayne Morgan does not have an offer yet, right?
You'd be correct sir! He does have a couple nice offers from the like of Alabama, Boston College, Miami(FL), Penn State and Syracuse already though. Maybe were next on the list?
Does anyone have any news on Latwan Anderson? Last I heard was he left the University of Miami (FL).
So, on Scout, their calling the 26th "junior day" now. I"m guessing this will be our official junior day apparently because its over 25 kids? Its behind a paywall, so I'm asking if anyone in the "know" has anymore details and what not???
I was also surprised to hear (Chaparral) OT Shane Callahan visited and was apparently at practice yesterday? Any updates on how that went Tom or anyone else for that matter?
edit- I"m hearing Ohio St. commit Brionte Dunn will also be visiting.
It seems like Mark Harrell (OL) from North Carolina will be in for the junior day as well.
