Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Bailey wants to decide next month.
If you can provide no side information, don't bother posting.
Who is "Bailey?"
The kid with all those great moves.
If I don't need to bother posting, I guess you don't need to bother commenting.
When your comment was neither smart nor funny.
Maybe there is such a thing as bad karma.
That one guy.
Do we have a realistic chance here?
Also, which other receivers do we have a chance with other than Treadwell?
We made his top 13 schools per a Rivals' article.
Was it top 13 or 3? Either way it's better then not being in it.
We are in his top 3 and he is yet to visit. Leon Mcquay is his teamate. stay tuned
We have a chance with Paul Harris and Devon Allen, maybe Darren Carrington. There are a few options, but Treadwell is probably the best bet.
Bailey's recruitment has been a little weird. Normally, I'd say it's a bad sign that he knows he wants to decide in the next month when he hasn't visited yet, but he also put us in his top 3 without visiting, so who really knows.
so would it be better to get bailey and mcquay or just get treadwell by himself? I think its a winning situation either way but I would have to say i want treadwell more (this is under the assumption we are only going to take 1 more wr since our remaining spots are getting low)
I would be with you there. IMO, Treadwell is far more complete than Bailey, and McQuay, although good, is not at a position of need. Win win type of situation though.
it would be cool to get a package deal though, after hearing about multiple ones every year they never seem to materialize
Do we know for sure if they are a package deal?
of course we don't know for sure, what im getting at is kids say they are package deals all the time and rarely end up going to the same school, like stanford and washington last year.
They have never even hinted at a package deal... Would one be more likely to commit if the other did? sure but they have never even made a remark towards a package deal.
I'd rather get Bailey and McQuay than Treadwell by himself. Bailey is plenty good and can stretch the field, and while I think Treadwell is the better overall prospect, McQuay could play cornerback or free safety. And as much as I like Dymonte Thomas and Jarrod Wilson as a pair back there, having a third safety who can push those guys (or pass them) would be great.
That's wishful thinking, though. I really doubt Bailey and McQuay would both come to Michigan.
I think Bailey and McQuay are supposed to be visiting in the next few weeks. Our main competition for Bailey is FSU. It would be nice if this one goes our way.
I'm pretty sure George Bailey is going to stay at the buildings&loan. Although I have no insider info on that, just my gut. I hear his younger brother is also going to be a football star.
I'd be willing to bet Zuzu's petals that Bailey and Mcquay dont end up a package deal.
be worked in here as the scurvy little spider?
I agree. I think if Bailey likes what he sees he commits. If he commits I doubt Treadwell does.
I have been getting more and more skeptical about Treadwell anyways. I know half our fanbase already has him blue but I'm not so sure. I believe if he liked us as much as everyone thinks, knowing we are running short of spots he would have committed by now. The fact he's still visiting teams like Illinois is also telling.
If Bailey commits I like our chances with McQuay. Whereas Treadwell has been one of my favorites all along I think two birds in the hand is worth more than one in the bush.
I agree, that is all.
Diamond v2.0 to me... the longer he takes to commit, the less optimistic I am.
sorry bro, I disagree with that reasoning. if Treadwell has been told that the coaches are holding a spot for him (as has been reported on these forums numerous times, though maybe only informed speculation at best), and we all know Treadwell loves being fawned over, then his behavior and lack of commitment at this stage make all the sense in the world.
what's more puzzling to me is the propensity of a lot of people on this board to get all hot and bothered about some kid they know nothing about simply because he has a few stars next to his name.
tremendous used to have a "Michigan man?" category on his recruiting analyses. yes, it was silly and added almost no value, but that's not the point. fast forward a few months and we are experiencing a ton of success and now it's like "who gives a sh*t! if he's got stars I want him!....more more more stars!"
The point isn't whether we are holding a spot for Treadwell. The point is if we get another WR commit I don't see Treadwell coming here. Believe me I would love to be wrong. Just don't see it happening.
As for Bailey. I don't care whether he has stars or no stars. Have you watched his video? The dude has moves. I think our coaches are impressed as well, otherwise they wouldn't have offered him knowing it might have an impact on Treadwell's decision. And McQuay is a stud and we could use another DB/S.
Why does bailey's decision have any impact on Treadwell? either way, Treadwell will be the no. 1 or no. 2 guy. I don't think the fact that we are taking other receivers less talented than him matters one way or another.
thanks for negbanging my post because you disagree. keep it classy bro.
I didn't negbang you bro. I think you are the one who needs to keep it classy. Obviously someone else feels the same way I do.
Bailey would play the slot. Why would this effect Treadwell? Treadwell just loves the recuirting process.
Just because he plays the slot doesn't mean he wouldn't take Treadwell's spot. If Bailey commits, it would give us three receivers, and 22 commits overall. That would mean we'd have one, maybe two more spots left, and the coaches might decide at that time that Treadwell isn't the guy they want more than any other guy on the board, and I wouldn't blame them.
Also - what if Bailey and McQuay both commit, not in the next couple weeks, necessarily, but before Treadwell. Then we might be full, and LT would be SOL.
Do you realize how far off signing day is?
In his top 3?
It would be so excellent if we could turn Armwood High into Pahokee v2.0.
He just tweeted, "#GOBLUE #WOLVERINES"......good sign? lol
and then proceeded to tweet "#GONOLES #FEARTHESPEAR" so we'll see.
Per Tremendous/Aquaman - Bailey is visiting next week. Buckle Up?
has us in his top 3 already without visiting and L3 has us in his top 3 also,package deal?
