That's just a cover man. Jeesh
Cam Burrows Surprise
Burrows is not switching; he's Ohio through and through. It's probably an OSU offer for McCray.
I think that McCray and Meyer had a plan in place to embarrass Michigan. That's why Meyer never offered McCray. Why wouldn't you offer one of the best LB's in the country especially if their dad was former team captain? Look for McCray to get his offer from OSU and then decommit from M. The perception would be that Meyer always gets who he wants.
I would hope Hoke could read a person better than that.
If Urban really wanted to "embarass" Michigan wouldn't he give McCray an offer, let him commit to Michigan, then have him flip on Signing Day? If your scenario plays out the perception would simply be that he loved OSU, not anything to do with Meyer. Not to be crass, but grow some balls dude and have some faith in Hoke.
I was joking! Meyer has won two national titles. One would think he's more professional than that.
conspiracy theorize much?
Based on what I've heard of Urban's past recruiting exploits, I can imagine a situation in which he offers McCray and McCray immediately decommits to play at OSU, thereby creating the image that OSU is winning a recruiting war with Michigan.
But that would mean that - A) McCray is kind of a sleaze himself and would go for that kind of thing (WHICH I DO NOT BELIEVE TO BE THE CASE), and B) that Hoke & Co. didn't do enough homework on this kid's desires or else they wouldn't have accepted his commitment given that this could unfold, especially since we have a pretty good # of LB prospects favoring or considering Michigan (WHICH I ALSO DO NOT BELIEVE TO BE THE CASE.)
I was always a little leery of accepting a commitment from McCray based on he fact that his father played for the Buckeyes and he has been a fan/around the program his whole life - that is a very difficult bond to break. Think of how engrained Michigan Football is in your life - now multiply that x10 based on the fact that his father played there.
Having said that, I will go with my positive gut on this one - While McCray did grow up an OSU fan, he fell in love with what Michigan has to offer and feels that Hoke & Co. offer him the best opportunity to succeed. His father, while a former OSU captain, is a father first and foremost and knows the deal - he needs to steer his kid to the best place for him, and feels that Ann Arbor is that place. It wouldn't be the first time a former player's son went to play for the rival (coughBorenCough)
Welcome to the fold McCray - Looking forward to seeing you in Maize and Blue on Saturdays.
That kind of strategy, though employed by Urban in the past, seems like it would easily backfire. You would basically be asking a kid to make himself look like a dbag and not commit so you can later use him as a pawn to create a false sense of recruitnig momentum. Surely most kids would find such a tactic highly unethical and insulting.
Oh the war games of recruiting, twitter, and the modern era! Im just glad that we are in on so many prospects right now. Lets not forget these great words, "Those that stay will be champions"!
Needs to chill. These are 2 high school friends who will see each other at 7:50 for class tomorrow. Of course they are gonna talk a little smack on twitter.
I guarantee this is not related to football people, gosh stop stalking these teenagers this is how bad rumors are started.
He's going to poop in his cooler.
He does not want to go to ohio....they will probably burn through 2-3 more defensive coaches before next season even starts. I admire urban meyer's ability to be a douche 24/7...its hard to never come off as a decent person. Consistency is commendable.
Why are your periods in the wrong damn place.
Ah-ha. So this is all part of Meyer's secret plan - to wait until McCray commits to Michigan, and THEN start recruiting him. That sly devil.
Good friends communicating on a social media site. Must be related to recruiting. Duh.
The Big suprise Burrows had for McCray was a CD with Ohio's fight song that he played while they went to school
I think there has been alot worse especially all these people going crazy over some 17 year old's twitter post
Plus I was told of this from a co worker, I don't do that twitter stuff
