We only have a few more days until LOI's are signed. Those who love Michigan will be Blue. Lets not cheapen our name by chastising a recruit unnecessarily. If you do and he ends up in AA, you'll feel silly.
[Confirmed:] Henry Poggi an official visitor to Bama this weekend
This. I hope Poggi has a great time in Alabama and a great college career in Ann Arbor.
Okay, I hold a rivals account, and this isn't even confirmed. Basically, the Bama people have been expecting/wanting Poggi to visit for weeks without it acutally happening. Insiders are saying he may visit, but even if he does that he isn't likely to switch commitments. Additionally, neither Henry or his father have commented on this latest rumor...please hold off on badtalking the kid
According to someone we all trust, his sources are currently saying this isn't true either. But who knows? We'll find out soon enough I guess.
Yep, saw the same thing on TOS and was very relieved to hear these are just recylcled rumors from last week.
Thanks for the informative post. Do yourself a favor and change your username. I don't care if it doesn't mean what people think it means. Also, "neither...nor". That one bugs me. That is all.
Hold off bad talking the kid? Even if he leaves, we shouldn't bad talk the kid.
I absolutely agree. Sorry if it wasn't clear from my post, but my point was to simply not talk bad about the kid, especially since everything was/is hearsay.
How many scollies do they have left?
Not that it matters...
Certainly it's his right to do whatever he thinks is in his best interest, and also his right (and I think a very smart decision) to try to do it as privately as posible, but if he leaves, I'll be quite bummed.
Neither Poggi's have confirmed anything. Change your title.
The Poggi's won't confirm or deny. Biff's policy is to not talk about recruiting stuff apparently.
Chill. There is NOTHING NEW HERE. It is all the same talk.
So if there's nothing new to see here, then why is it an OFFICIAL visit?
It's called reading between the lines. Look at the picture again and study it. Wait for it, waaaaaait for it....got it yet?
The rivals board has been quite explicit that they expect Poggi to remain Blue, but they also threw in the "anything can happen" caveat. If the kid wants to check out 'Bama and switch it's certainly his right, if there's truth to it it bugs me that it's this close to signing day and awfully late for Michigan to find a replacement.
On another note, can someone please blow up the 'Bama deathstar already?
This has been known for at least 2 months now. Coaches are aware. This isn't like a Pharroh Brown incident. He just is going down there to get some free t-shirts and make out with a Bama cheerleader. Who wouldn't want to do that?
The 247 thing is a board post, not an article. As stated above, it essentially says Alabama is expecting Poggi this weekend, which as several have pointed out above, is no different than any other weekend for the last few weeks.
Lorenz suggests that this potential visit has been cleared by the coaches at their in home visit last week.
Wiltfong talked to one of the assistent coaches going with Poggi's dad this weekend to Alabama who stated "Henry may or may not come with us."
I thought this was debunked weeks ago?
but evidently, it's still bunk. Or something.
For your opinion.
I was wondering.
Chill out people. It's a high school kid. I'm sure you did stuff people didn't agree with either and everything turned out to be okay. Let him visit. If he wanted to switch I bet he would have visited a long time ago.
Can someone confirm the pronunciation of his name? I had assumed it was pah-gee, but I heard Sam Webb pronounce it poe-jee the other day.
The announcers were using the latter during his all star game (I can't remember if it was the UA or Army game).
Yeah, it's definitely POE-jee.
I always thought it rhymed with Yogi. Until I know for sure I'll just call him 'Sir Henry'.
247 is terrible in click mode again.
So is bassmaster.
TomVH says the rumors aren't true, per Wolverine Nation.
Yea but the op said the other board said it was true, and it's paywalled ($) so it has to be true!
/going back to zombie block party
Quick! Someone tell Tom to pay wall what he just said so its true!!!
Damnitt. Just kidding. I know this is mostly smoke. Just couldn't resist commenting. This kid is my favorite recruit.
the fact that alabama is interested in him, makes me happy (assuming he says committed to Michigan.)
the fact that alabama is interested in him, makes me happy (assuming he stays committed to Michigan.)
EDIT: Interesting double post... one has a typo the other doesn't... Are these fraternal double posts?
I like the post in here telling people to chill out, when nobody other than the OP was anything but calm about this "news."
made my brain hurt.
Please don't go.
All the plants are going to die.
The trip paid and access to see/visit all facilities with Cyrus.
His dad is a reputable guy and wouldn't fool with UM coaches.
Henry is Blue.
the kid said that his last visit to AA reminded him why he wants to be here. rumors are just rumors, enough with this BS
This thread was totally worth it for the "jerkstore" and "don't tell him to tell me what to do" exchanges....
I love how we are like a dysfunctional family!! ("He did it!" "He made me cry")
the more ppl are going to panic...laughable!
Easily,you can tell the ones who have patience or aren't new to the recuriting game,and the ones who panic...
