Wouldn't be surprised if #Michigan got more good news today.
It's gotta be Leonard Fournette.
Really not sure if you're serious.
He's really really good.
Strengths: He's a bawse
Weaknesses: Has yet to conquer the Galaxy.
He is like Derrick Green.
But with hype.
Timeline suggests it would be Jon Runyan Jr. He said he wanted to talk his choice over with the parents a week ago. Here's how that conversation goes;
Junior: "Mom & Dad, I had a really good visit to Michigan"
Dad: "Thats Mom and CONGRESSMAN to you"
Junior: "Sorry, Mom & Congressman, I had a good camp at Michigan, Coach Hoke offered me, I think I want to go to Michigan."
Dad: "DUH! Where the hell else did you think you were going"
Junior: "OK then."
Hand, Scott, Fournette, come on down!
Somebody wake up Ace - he's got a busy day already with a surprise unknown kicker commitment. Damn that's got to be tough to write.
I would think writing up a kicker is not that hard.
"He approaches ball and puts his foot to it. It is called "football", not "carryball" or "passball". That is what he does and he does it very well." Throw in a few stats.
My guess: John Runyan Jr.

Free crack giveaway?
Any chance we can retire "buckle up" as meme around here? It has to be in the MgoBoard top three of most cliched and overused phrases. And this was before Tom VH "retired"......
Long live the memory of TomVH.
The mods will get around to that right after they take care of folks who think it's cool to post swimsuit pics of their spouses or fanboi Jim Tressel at corporate functions.
Wasnt seeking Mod intervention-just asking for the meme to be given a breather. But it sounds like everybody likes it (like cat Gifs & Upton) so who am i to complain?
But I'm pretty sure the other two things you reference are ok around here provided they are done in good taste. Or so I've heard.......
Seems like you touched on a nerve. Apparently the memory of TomVH is not to be crossed. (Upton is another meme I could do without, I'm with you there.)
Cat GIFS, though, shall never be touched, you hear me! NEVER!
One man's cliched meme is another man's cherished memory it seems.
i'd say kill it with fire but then again kill it with fire is itself a cliched meme to me anyways.
What do you propose to takes its place? "Commitment likely to happen soon"? I like Buckle Up because it's succinct.
"Cat Daddy" because commitments inevitably lead to that video.
And God Bless them, every one for that.
I have a pretty low tolerance for a lot of what passes for inside jokes around here, but I don't mind the "buckle up" phrase. It's more shorthand than a joke; I guess it's a reference, but it seems like it's barely even that.
Things like "MSU recruits intergalactically" or "I guess it wasn't a committable offer, lolz" are fucking stupid, though, and can't die quick enough.
Maybe Brady Hoke will point at your text and it will be scared into abbreviating itself. That is, unless Dantonio is laying in the weeds waiting for him to point so he knows where to go to recruit...
Couldn't agree more on that one. If the joke was still "nationally" it would be much more tolerable, but intergalactically isn't even something that got said, it's just an escalation that went "lol sparty recruits nationally" to "No, guys, check this out, lol sparty recruits globally" and that chain continued until we somehow got to Star Wars territory.
I agree. I'd up-vote if I could but I'm a peon.
I am still hopeful it's Stefon Diggs...
I'll admit it
Man, UM could use a corner with his size and speed.
Still holding out hope on that one are you?
Hell yeah, just what I needed for a boring workday. Time to F5 this bitch.
Sometimes posts and avatars go together like lamb and mint jelly.
No no no, like lamb and tuna fish
Love lamb...hate mint jelly.
Lamb and tuna fish.
Edit: DAMN, beaten to the punch...leaving the picture up anyway. Cuz its funny.
damn you for making me laugh so hard i woke the sleeping baby in my arms.
she went back to sleep. so...thanks for the lol
all signs point to JR jr.
We're about to flip Damon Webb!
but maybe Chuma Edoga if he got an offer?
That's true; Edoga was supposed to call the coaches last night or today and let Steve know afterwards.
Can't we just have both?
I don't think he has received his offer yet but a possibility.
You heard it here, first.
No, we didn't.
She's been in my Top 3 since 1984 (It's okay... I'm two years younger than her so it would have been consenting 9 and 11 year olds)
I just switched over to feedly from google reader and it grabbed this gif as the image for the thread. I like it.
Has Fournette even seen the campus?????
I bet he has used Google's street level maps, which is good enough. Fournette = lock.
Any chance it's Damien Harris?
Montae Nicholson tired of playing footsies? Come on down! You're the next contestant on Michigan Football!
Are also hinting at something. Something's happened, guess well have to wait and see...
Anything less than a dual commitment of Fournette and Hand and I will be disappointed.
Anyone want to start a poll on who breaks it first?
is that Parker "Will" Phal to Michigan
But seriously, it's actually Runyon Jr.
The scouting report was that he was tough, aggressive and refused to wear a purse like the purple one did. Plus he is Yellow, do I need to say more.
Don't talk shit about Tinky Winky
I think one of the overlooked aspects of buckling up is all the F5 keys out there that will be abused by this imminent good news.
Let's all remember to keep F5 keys in our thoughts and prayers this morning.
to be unbuckled myself while hitting F5
While Runyan is obvious best guess, wouldn't be suprised with a 2014 WR committing, most likely Freddy Canteen
The anticipation is killing me.
i think canteen would be a nice pickup for a slot wr (excellent routes, great speed and stellar footwork). he also took his last trip to rutgers last week so after a side-by-side comparison, i think we have a chance to beat out rutgers for a good one.
It's JR Jr.
Chantel Jennings and TVH just posted the update
according to Chantel on the ESPN FORUM, Runyan Jr has committed!
saying its Runyan
I is slower
Time to change the title OP! Awesome! I love Michigan legacies!
Welcome JR Jr.
buckled up for a scheduling announcement? There were talks a couple weeks back that DB was working hard to schedule a home and home with a major SEC program.
Edit: I'm late!
Its Runyan Jr. Confirmed by Tremendous
I've been flying all day. I am literally buckeled up.
