Per Scout and the other Brian's Twitter. Sweet.
Delonte Hollowell. Welcome to the club.
What a great day!!!! Enough said.
great day for wolverine nation
we have two commits today and would love to see a third
Yeah someone get in Demar Dorsey's ear
Rich Rod didn't care about Defense though? Why do we keep getting D commits?
Hollowell was the other commit that I was talking about today. He committed last Sunday, and didn't want it reported yet, but leave it to Scout to ruin that for him.
I just talked to him about an hour ago, to see if I could report it, and he said he didn't want to yet.
You're a class act Tom.
the amateur at the free site is more professional than the "professionals."
Couldn't have said it better myself, Captain Obvious. +1 to you, good sir.
Yet another reason that I dislike Scout.
This is great news lets keep it coming! Could there possibly be one more today?
1. Davion rogers commits
2. Gardner admitted
3. Hollowell commits
WHAT A DAY TO BE A WOLVERINE FAN!!!
Don't forget basketball they're in there too!
I'd still like Mathis as part of this class....you can't teach speed like he has.
You might want him as part of this class, but the coaching staff doesn't. Let go of your dream.
Now we just need Bball to pull out this win against #15 UConn, and it will be a great day all-around!!
the next 4-star Cass Tech Michigan commit?
Continuing the long line (not) of diminutive cornerbacks..
If by "next" you mean "second one ever", then perhaps. Campbell was a 5-star, and Jones and Gordon were 3-stars. The only other 4-star from Cass Tech was Cissoko.
Magnus, what's your evaluation of Hollowell?
I'm lukewarm on Hollowell. Based on high school videos I've seen, I'd take Cissoko and Mathis over Hollowell. I'm guessing Hollowell will be a 3-star once the ratings come out. He has excellent hands, but I'm not impressed by his speed or his size. It's not a good thing when a 5'8" corner has questions about his speed, but maybe he just looks slow because the turf in the PSL is manicured only slightly better than a cow pasture.
When Rodriguez calls you on your cell phone and asks you your opinion on a recruit before he commits, you need to answer. We all are well aware of your expertise and insurmountable importance. What shall we do now Magnus? Please tell us. Do we burn a couch? Start an internet meme against this decision? Gnash our teeth?
WHY GOD!? WHY DID WE HAVE A CORNERBACK COMMIT THAT MAGNUS IS LUKEWARM ON. THERE IS NO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He was asked his opinion, he didn't put it out there as a condemnation of the recruit. You may not like past posts, but is it really fair to piss on one that someone asked him to write?
while i may be mistaken, the OP was sarcastic.
I don't think the OP was being sarcastic.
But if he was, I apologize for answering the question honestly.
It was a serious question, and thank you for answering.
I'm glad you were being serious, because normally my sarcasm-ometer works pretty well. Otherwise, I'd have to take it in for a tune-up, and those are expensive.
I think he was trying to be funny.
Ummmm...the guy asked me a question, and I offered my opinion. You are welcome to take it or leave it.
I didn't realize that answering a question honestly would cause you so much unrest.
I apologize ahead of time for not being head-over-heels for every single recruit. If Hollowell is All Big Ten in a few years, feel free to point out my mistake and laugh at me. I will gladly accept the egg on my face if Hollowell turns out to be good - I'd love it if EVERY Michigan recruit turned out to be a Heisman candidate, but obviously that won't happen.
I think we're all pumped to have Delonte. If Rich wants him then he is probably a good player. It is however ironic that some posters said they didn't want Mathis because he is too short. Well Mathis is 5"8 and runs 4.4, while= DH is 5"8 and runs 4.7.
Glad to have you on board Delonte!
I am on the record as not being a fan of Cissoko or Mathis when they were coming out of high school. A lack of height in a cornerback scares me in the Big Ten. There are certain skills that can make up for a lack of height, but overall, taller = better, in my opinion.
Sorry, but I am NOT "amped" about D. Hollowell, just as I was not interested in getting D. Mathis, nor was I "pumped" about B. Cissoko despite his high ranking.
This is why I am really disappointed that we appear to have lost out on Tony Grimes. Good size (5'11") and physical play is what I like to see in CB's.
Still, I welcome D. Hollowell to the Maize and Blue (as I do to all recruits who choose UM). Prove me wrong, Delonte!
And he was short.
5'11" is not short for a cornerback.
And he wasn't 5' 11". I don't care what the media guides said.
Well, he's not 5'8" or 5'9". He's not short. I have never heard of him being referred to as a short cornerback before. Regardless, I don't fully trust a media guide, and I don't fully trust some guy who eyeballed him when walking past him in the hallway at South Quad, either. Both are inexact.
but these aren't our hostesses are they?
BTW - Delonte punts and has a sweet mustache too. I like that.
Welcome to the party kid! Glad to see Cass Tech still is feeling BLUE!
