Commit Watch? Buckle Up
My money is on Alex Kozan.
No way. Vision Quests are never wrong.
No way, man. Yuri Wright.
Ha I like how people are cool with Kozan and Isaac, but Wright gets negged immediately.
It's Dillon Baxter.
What about transfers? Demar Dorsey, anyone?
Here it comes.
My guess is Hurst. Anyone else likely?
He said in a following tweet it wasn't Hurst
I doubt Dawson was going to reveal the identity of the recruit over twitter so when asked about Hurst, I'm wouldn't be surprised he would deny it even if it was true. Maybe he is telling the truth, but if you combine this with the current status of our prospects, Hurst is the one that makes the most sense.
Hurst has been reported to possibly commit to Michigan on his visit next week or shortly thereafter. Treadwell sounds like he is going to wait until the end of summer/early fall, and Poggi has been in radio silence.
That was my assumption. I will wait to find out though.
Commiting without even visiting... idk
How am I going to sleep with this freakin seatbelt on????
right now, ready for a wild ride
That's quite a visual.
I'd accept Laquon Treadwell to the class.
You are the best!
I read on Rivals yesterday that Hoke, while at a coaching clinic in Scottsdale, told the audience we already have 3 WRs in the 2013 class. Sounds possibly like a silent Treadwell commit.
Link or it didn't happen
that's all i could find. no idea how credible that is. i've got a rivals scrip, but maybe i missed it?
Got it thanks guys. Let's hope it was him.
the kid said he will commit as soon as he makes it to AA.
I didn't think he was coming up for another 2 weeks (although I could be completely wrong).
I don't really know why, but he did seem to strike a friendship with Dawson at that camp they both dominated. So, yeah... that's my totally uninformed guess.
I like your thinking, and I hope it plays as the correct one. Personally feel Mathis would be a great fit to this team and I agree seems to be rather close to Daws and several other blue recruits.
If it were Joe Mathis, he'd change his mind in three days, anyway.
Over/Under on # of schools Mathis commits to. 3
I'd say Treadwell, my guess is as good as anyone's though
I have a feeling it may be Treadwell as well. I've even heard rumblings he may be a silent.
Is your guess really as good as anyone's? For example, might Hoke have a better guess?
BuckleCon4. Hurst seems most likely, given recent media buzz, but who knows? Taco Pants, given infinite eligibiltymay re-commit to Michigan; thus forcing Treadwell's hand even further.
We've been at BuckleCon 4 for a while now. I recommend BuckleCon 2; this is war-readiness. If news surfaces about the timetable for a decision, we'll have to go maximum readiness; Bucklecon 1.
No. It's been said that McDowell's parents won't let him commit until his junior year. Actually he himself said it.
Well, his sophomore year is just about over. Dawson is a fellow Detroiter who has been with McDowell at a few camps, and he may have some inside information.
Isn't Malik part of the potential team 135 class? I don't recall.
Yes, class of 2014.
That would be a good guess, BUT it says team 134....
Su'a Cravens, come on down.
I'm thinking Treadwell is the safe bet, but I don't know how close him and Dawson are.
Isaac and Levenberry decide they made the wrong choice and come to the good side.
Consider my up buckled.
Its Dee Hart of course......
I believe its Hurst. Even though Dawson said it wasn't him, if you look at Hursts twitter he told Dawson to DM his number 4 hours ago. Then Dawson announces someones going to committ soon a little bit later? My guess is they had a private conversation and Dawson is just trying to throw people off the trail to not ruin it. Plus this would fit with reports by Tremendous and his apparent high interest.
is exactly what I was going to say. Hurst has been hamming it up with Shane, LTT, Dawson, and Khalid Hill the past couple days via Twitter, and he even re-tweeted some information about the Michigan-Alabama game and made mention of watching last year's MSU/OSU game. His heart already seems to be into B1G football...I'd be shocked if anyone other than Hurst commits in a couple weeks time, or if Hurst doesn't commit to Michigan.
i would not have known how to find out about minors' conversations in the public record.
Demar Dorsey step right up! I knew that Hawaii stuff was bullshit!
I thought you got sent to your room... in Bolivia.
The entire football program at Cass Tech is going to commit now and get it over with.
Negged for not showing the proper appreciation for lion manes.
Come on. Think about the first time Campbell would lead the Wolverines down the field 80+ yards to win the game. The headline? "Drive Like Jayru"
If you don't want him to commit just for that, I don't know what to think.
+ 1 for obscure post-hardcore band reference. Although we already have Jehu Chesson in the fold so there's no need for the misspelling...
+1 for reminding me that the hilarious headline I suggested is already a possibility.
Hurst would be a good start to fill the remaining spots on the defensive side of the ball. Dude comes off the line like a bullet and is half way to the QB before the lineman in front of him has time to react.
Some random recruit from the past who committed elsewhere!
psych!! LOL ROTFLMAO
/select all, copy, paste, in next "buckle up" thread.
Kris frost it is then
(Insert recruit we had a chance at but didn't pull through)....(everyone laughs)
Does it even matter! It's "just another 4 star"!! Crazy to think this class could be full before the season starts!
My biggest fear is that it wont be a 4 star and the idiots in the 3 star mafia will come out of hiding.

I hope Dawson is better at this than Pee Wee was last winter.
Billy Price. He does not want to get owned by Dawson for the next few years, so he's going to flip. Scared straight, one might say. Smart move.
Do. Not. Want.
Although I lknow this isn't true...Leon McQuay...but it could happen
All joking aside, could it be Poggi? That would be huge
I wish, but I haven't read anything about Dawson and Poggi chatting it up.
Need elite WR! Please be Treadwell!
2nd guess, Seantrel Henderson...
Buckle? Not good enough. 5 point harness is locked down and I'm ready. Hit me with it!
with your point total I have no reason not to believe you.
with a name like that, there is no reason not to believe you
Treadwell it is!
Hope to god it's Treadwell!
Tom answered a question regarding the tweet on WolverineNation and suggested that the "nope" in regards to Hurst was to throw people off. He suggests that the conversation the two were having before is the strongest indication that Hurst is our next commit.
I just saw that Tom VH said that. If not Hurst, I would say Poggi who will probably decide within the next month.
we are going to be buckle up for a month?
You mean not even Tom knows for sure? I swear, if Tom was still here, he would have heard BEFORE Dawson. Sad story.
Since nobody else said it yet,
Please tell me you had to look that up. Otherwise, you have an incredible memory.
You guys don't remember Frobozz Tamoshanter? And how Brian got MGoBlog to be the #1 Google result for that name?
Wow. I'm definitely buckled up. Regardless of who it's going to be, this class is nothing short of amazing. It would be nice to have Treadwell commit. Then college football wouldn't even be fair anymore with Shane as our qb and the receivers we have pulled in.
for Ron Johnson. ROJO!!!!!!!!!!
/ not political. Really!
Rick James Bitches!!!!!!!!
Cullen Christian's press conference is finally coming to an end?!
Let's not get crazy.
I love how the ad to the left on this page is "Click it or ticket".
Damn it, I need a time frame!
That is when Hurst is visiting.
I saw someone post a tweet from Hurst telling Dawson to check his Direct message on his twitter yesterday. From what I saw on twitter Hurst has been talking with most of our recruits on there a lot lately.
We need DT's more than anything right now...
My money is on Kate Upton. I want to see her Dougie on the sidelines for the next 4-5 years.
((Insert snide comment about sarcastic suggestions about past recruits that recruited elsewhere))
((Insert sarcastic lol))
My money's on Ronald Johnson transferring from Philadelphia, FWIW.
Nope not suggesting past recruits, just for you! Rather, a fellow Michigan commit already ok?
Hello: Kate Upton.
He can keep his hats in Philly.
said soon,this weekend Treadwell is suppose to visit for a 7on7 i think,he is gonna visit MICHIGAN after.
Poggi starts it off, followed by Treadwell and Hurst by the end of next week
He is competing in the 7on7 tournament. Not visiting Michigan's campus...
Offseason is so frustrating. The speculation is killing me!!
Is that kid wearing an Alabama shirt? I'd be crying too, no offense RDT.
A little wolverine told me it was someone from Virginia.
Derrick Green? or Robert E. Lee. One of those
Wishful thinking, if you believe Robert E Lee is coming here. He is fully committed to Virginia. That ship has sailed.
Definitely someone I would go to war with.
I like to imagine him coming through the tunnel on Traveller. He'd certainly have no problem touching the banner.
With his trusty Sparkplug not too far behind I'd imagine!
I have heard that he doesn't care much for the blue uniforms
Robert Nkemdiche isn't from Virginia.
Someone already said Green, but this one could be it too. Unless you're lying. But this is the internet so obviously not.
prolly that DT that said he is gona commit. would make some sense
That Hoke's great 2013 recruiting class may become exceptional!
It would be great to land Poggi, Hurst, Treadwell, and may be McQuay and Jordan.
Did anyone else listen to Sam Webb's Recruiting Round-up Radio Show on WTKA 1050 today? He started the show sharing his opinion on how Michigan was in great shape for Maurice Hurst, and then followed it up (at around the 3:15 mark) by stating that Michigan fans should be expecting "positive things for the Wolverines in the not too distant future." He then said "not positive thing, but positive things," making sure to emphasize the plurality of the word.
I think all of us are fully expecting Hurst to commit sometime around his visit, but it sounds like Sam is aware of another potential commitment happening in June (he mentions the month of June around the 3:10 mark). I've heard that we are in great shape with both Poggi and Treadwell, but I thought Treadwell was going to wait until his season began to decide. My guess is Poggi. Perhaps it's someone else off the radar? Doubt it, but you never know. Just thought I'd share...
Follow me on Twitter: @BRG_esq
I am just a fan like the rest of you. Very proud to be a part of such a dedicated fan base.
Do you know what would happen to every tsiO fan site if it was Robert Nkemdiche. They would literally stop pooping in coolers and start sh****ng their pants.
That guy is the most terrifying prospect I have ever seen. He makes Adrian Peterson look like an underclassman, and he's only 16. 6'5", 280, and he runs a 4.5? Are you kidding?
Wasn't Su'a Cravens just in AA? Probably him or Treadwell. I'll say Cravens.
He visits next weekend. Also he has an announcement day in early June. I would be surprised if he didn't go to USC, but we will see.
Cravens may indeed go to USC but its surely not a lock . Put yourself in his shoes . He grew up in Cali probably a USC fan . If you , like I , grew up in Michigan and UM was your childhood favorite , would you even spend your parents money to go across country when you already know your going to your dream school to play ball. If he knew he was going to USC he wouldn't be coming out here. Our chances are at worse 25%.
22,500 views for this thread???
Does anyone here have a life?
(ok....about 200 of those are mine...get off me)
You are really asking this question here? No would be a safe answer.
Wait where do you see a view count??
Has there been any news about Anzalone since he decommited?
Not to my knowlege. Now that Levenberry is off the boards, I think we should ask him to visit. It might spark something. I wouldn't mind adding Pocic either.
Anzalone was turned away by the coaching staff. The coaches are happy with two LBs in this class. With the exception of one or two super talents that they could not turn away.
