With TomVH's cryptic comment yesterday in the ESPN chat, does anyone wonder if Danny O could be back in play? Tom said that he couldnt really say much other than the person is committed to another school. I don't think he was referring to Reeves, so who is it? With all the shenanigans going on at Tennessee, I wouldnt mind seeing O'Brien back in the mix for UM. And yeah, I know we have a ton of DL talent coming in, but we lost Pharoah who was at one time considered a DL/TE commit.
Danny O'Brien still an option?
Right after you dumped her anyway.
As a buddy once said to me as a chunky ex walked by... Good fold.
Care to repeat it?
Tom basically said that there was a secret visitor who is currently committed to another school. He didn't say any more.
the player is an ESPN 4*, however, O'Brien is only 3*'s on ESPN.
Could it be Dunn?
Isn't he already enrolled?
Good question. Is he? I really want to know.
As the guy said below, I checked the OSU student directory and Dunn is not in there. I dont think its him
Dunn is NOT in there? How does that make you think it's not him?
I also checked for Braxton Miller and the borens. Miller is not in there but Borens are. I dont want to cause any further controversy, but this is what the OSU directory has for right now. Its fairly simple to see on the internet.
I meant not him by saying I dont think its Dunn visiting. Sorry about that.
or possibly Jordan Payton......dunn,dunn, dunn!
I'm just curious. Reeves seems to be the obvious guess.
I think it's pretty common knowledge that there's mutual interest between Reeves and Michigan.
Its not Reeves because he has a visit planned for this week, therefore, he would not be considered a secret visitor.
Reeves hasn't exactly been shy about his desire to explore his options. Didn't he publicly announce his Michigan visit?
O'Brien tweeted something like "Vol4Life" when he was asked about this stuff during the Arnett thing. I don't think he's going anywhere.
Vole4Life is catchier
Not Danny O! Tom talked to him today and he is staying with Tenn. If he does change his mind he said he would go to Alabama.
So no Obrien obviously.
I hope it's not OL. With Garnett looking more optimistic, I really think 6 players is enough. I'd like to see another stud DL, QB or RB.
TomVH also stated he was a 4 star recruit. Espn has O'Brien has a 3 star recruit.
also said the prospect would not be visiting this weekend. If he visits (which is not set up yet) it would be next weekend.
don't you think he was referring to reeves?
We don't think it's Reeves because his visit to Michigan is fairly public, which is far from "secret." I'm sure Tom wouldn't have a mentioned a secret visit in relation to Armani since it is common knowledge that he is visitng this weekend.
to us but secret to the rest of the nation. Remember Tom is speaking to a National audience now. He had to be cryptic to them to get the readers interested.
I thought this was the dude who is committed to ASU, Evan Goodman. Rumor around the campfire is he'll be in town this weekend.
Yes you win. I saw this earlier today as well.
I've heard his name tossed around too, but according to his Rivals page, he's already taken four officials and is taking his fifth this weekend to Arkansas.
Now, switching his official from Arkansas to Michigan wouldn't be a big deal, but then why does it need to be a secret? If ASU already knows he has an official scheduled for this weekend, why would switching that official to a different school need to be a secret? Especially since all four of his officials that he's taken have been since his commitment to ASU.
He might also be visiting, but it doesn't add up why he'd want it to be a secret.
Check out his ESPN page. It lists a visit to Michigan for this weekend - Jan. 13.
Even more reason to suggest he's not a secret visitor.
and the visit date is not so subtle
if I'm acting like I know something when I clearly don't, is 6'4" a little shorter than optimal for OT?
It is shorter than optimal, but it's not prohibitive. Arm length is more important for a tackle than height, it just usually happens that taller guys have longer arms. Matt Light is 6'4" I think, and he's a tackle.
Most top tackle are 6'6"+, but there are good ones in the 6'4" to 6'5" range too.
Think it was Muller the OT committed to Rutgers but he confirmed he wasn't visiting.
Yep, Chris Muller, 6-6 298lbs OT from PA
Also, Pipkins was talking about it on Twitter. He's not a fan of O'Brien.
Understandably so. O'Brien had a very underwhelming year, especially for playing in a rather weak league.
That Obrien is lookin to decomit from Tenn and comit to Michigan. Again take it fwiw.
How was 93grad's post trolling? He made a reasonable comment about the current discussion and phrased it courteously. Am I missing something
His spelling and grammar is atrocious.
his spelling and grammer ARE atrocious. No?
You just misspelled "grammar". We all make mistakes. Unless you mean Kelsey Grammer is atrocious. He was good on Cheers though. Besides, unless they have a tight relationship, he wouldn't be "his" Kelsey Grammer . . .
This whole series of comments just made me laugh out loud. I marked all comments accordingly.
I'm not sure if you are serious or not (cue the Joker picture), but it any event is it me or does it seem like every other post is getting negged lately for no apparent reason? I know it's taboo to discuss points but it just seems like there is a strange and recent trend to throw out arbitrary negs.
I really don't know why you have to speculate about this. Tom says that the kid doesn't want anything out there about it becuase he's committed elsewhere and doesn't want to jeopardize his spot and you feel the need to start rumors about who it might be. Doesn't make any sense to me.
Look, if Tom really wanted to keep it a secret, he wouldn't have said anything about it at all. I think throwing out little "hints" about "secrets" means that speculation is fair game.
