Maybe Michigan gives him a call??
...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
I'd be in favor of that.
Would really, really like that...
I know Rivals has him listed as a 4* DT, but I remember hearing that we recruited him on the OL, anyway...
Yeah, Michigan wants him for offense.
He's a very raw player at the moment but his potential is sky high. He is capable of playing on either side of the line, and now that he is uncommitted, it's not like we would be poaching a fellow Big Ten commit. I'm not the coach, but from my couch, I say go for it.
Players only decommit from Michigan. It's true. I read it on the Internet just yesterday.
Is that true?
I also read it only happens when other schools are offering $$$. I think we might have been reading the same Internet.
Internet have bewbs? Mine does
I'm still LMFAO from that GIF you came up with on Danny Hope fighting E Honda or whatever he's called, truly epic.
It was amazing how Hope looked like he was blocking every shot, you the man!
I never saw that GIF until I saw your post and went searching for it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing this to my attention. I was tearing up at work from laughing so hard. Well done Blaze, well done indeed.
Is there any word on where he's leaning? Often times, when kids decommit, they already have their alternatives in mind. It's rare that a kid decommits, especially late-ish like now, being completely wide open. I suppose that info will come out soon enough.
Judging from this 247 profile, it looks like he holds Indiana in high regard.
... that even the internets can be wrong.
He must now be a silent Michigan commit to fill the spot vacated by Dawson
// 2 + 2 = Purple
Quick someone check Dawson's twitter!! Did he say if we should buckle up?? /too soon?
mark this comment as flamebait or I will hide your Octoberfest beers spelled with a K instead of a C
I would go with IU. David Kenney decommitted from Iowa yesterday and is about to commit to IU soon. They are friends and I think IU may be gaining some momentum in recruiting the top players from Indianapolis.
I was meaning if I had to predict where he was going. And I go to IU so I would be okay with him doing that too.
apply to one of UM's easier schools and switch colleges after you gain admission.
I wouldn't trade SPEA for the Ford School*, which is my area of study. I'm extremely proud of my IU degree, and would put it up against any other degree in my field, from anywhere.
*In no way do I mean to say that the Ford School isn't a top notch college with great resources, faculty and students. Objectively, it is, and M has a lot to be proud of from its smallest college (I believe it is for undergrad, I could be wrong).
His bball team has a good shot at winning state and he might play both for IU.
If that's true and both Kenney and Latham go to IU, that would give them 3 4 stars on Rivals, and two in the top 250. Both of those numbers would be more than MSU.
Ya but those aren't national recruits.
They don't return to games when they get the wind knocked outta them.
I can't comprehend why top HS Indiana football players would look anywhere else than ND for an in-state school
To Hell with Notre Dame! That's why.
I can tell you first hand that Kevin Wilson is ten times the man Brian Kelly is. That would be reason enough for me to possibly want to go to IU over Notre Dame. Just check that picture posted above me, I wouldn't want to play for Brian Kelly.
Because they grew up watching the Big Ten and want to play there.
When I saw Wisconsin decommit, I was praying this would be an OLine guy. If there's one thing Wisconsin knows, it's identifying talent on the OLine.
Still, I'm sure he'd be a good pick up. Can never have too many solid men in the trenches.
running backs as well.
Has Wisconsin been an OL factory for a long time or was that a product of Paul Chryst and the OL coach?
Apparently a possible target is an OL out of Maryland by the name of Na'ty Rodgers. According to a couple 247 posters, he would be very interested if Michigan were to offer
That would be great, he has offers from everyone. USC (both), Florida, Okahoma, Arkansas, Clemson, among others.
I'm not sure if I trust random message board posters.
Sam mentioned this morning that UM has contacted Rodgers.
Here's some shoulder-horns to look at prior to his committment -
Don't hate. You wish you had them.
He, David Kenney, John Kenny (current Iowa commit from Carmel, IN) and Elijah Daniel (current Clemson commit fro Avon, IN) are probably all going to do so together. They were all at the IU-OSU game. The in state kids, led by Antonio Allen from Ben Davis are trying to get all of them to stay home. There's a chance Tim Kimbrough (Warren Central - Georgia commit) joins them as well. That would be a huge coup for IU to land 5 highly regarded 4 star kids in state. No way they get Jaylon Smith, though.
Are you really suggesting that IU (let me clarify so we are clear, Indiana University) is on the verge of pulling off what essentially only Texas can do? That being, actually recruiting and keeping all of their high school football talent in-state in the pursuit of football glory. I'm not buying it.
That is what is about to happen. I live in Indy and this is pretty big news. The IDS (Indiana Daily Student), IU's newspaper, even has an article today with quotes from David Kenney saying he and Latham are both for sure committing. I think they are waiting till Saturday to do it at Hoosier Hysteria. IDK if Kevin Wilson will be back from losing to Navy yet, but I assume he'd hot foot it there to lock them up. They already have Allen, the 4-star safety, and are for sure adding 2 more. Elijah Daniel and John Kenney were there for the OSU game, and both are on the fence, but I think a few wins would push them over.
