"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Not a homer but this kid has some serious athleticism and I will be very surprised if he is not a consensus 4 star by national signing day. The fact that he is 6'2 helps also. A couple of years in the weight room and good coaching could make this kid into a special player. I like him. GO BLUE!!
I am a homer and you are 100% correct.
He looks like Curtis Granderson. That's good enough for me
I would be shocked if this hasn't been mentioned already. But according to Tremendous, Chris Hawkin is also making his decision this saturday.
#93 overall to scout http://thisismichiganfootball.blogspot.com/
This is more than 4 hours until decision time, I am susposed to notify them of an erection lasting longer than that.
What isn't blue chip about this kid? Our system is a little different from everyone else's, and look what Hoke/Mattison did with the less than perfect talent (I'm feeling charitable) we had on D last year.
Conley is tall, fast, locates well, seems to diagnose well...maybe he's not a 4.3 40 guy, but he's only 18(ish). I knocked .20 seconds off of my 40 in college, and I'm sure he'll work harder in the weight room than I did.
Don't get too caught up in the 5* thing. This kid has elite talent, and fits what we want to do, keeping the ball inside and in front, and making plays on the ball when it's in the air.
Getting him and Hawkins this weekend would wrap-up CB this year, I think.
He's a 6' 2" CB who is a 3/4* recruit who in his highlight video plays the deep pass, plays the run, reads a QBs eyes for a pick, blitzes, blocks kicks and returns kick-offs plus the coaches are high on him in spite of our limited scholarships available. I'll take him any day!
I'm sure there is still room for Cravens and/or Fuller if they want to come.
This takes one player off my wish list:
6’2” ¾* WR
Everything else is a bonus.
He is CB but your list has WR crossed off.
Ludicrous speed - GO!
FWIW, the guy who puts together the Bucknuts Top 50 just loves Conley. Says he is a better cover corner than Burrows. "His athleticism and ball skills are the best in Ohio, no question."
It's all over twitter that he's stated that he's committing to M today. EXCELLENT!!!
