Detailed Armani Reeves and Jordan Diamond updates
I giggitied too much :(
Thanks a lot aquaman! Loved the read. Go Blue Armani!
Thank you for this! Amazing work, Aqua!!
Don't underestimate the power of mom.
I definitely like having Mattison be Armani's last visitor, that definitely will help us after Urban talks to him.
As for Diamond choosing his school the a couple days after NSD, could that change whether or not we land him? I'm just a little worried he might want to go blue, but the spots will fill up beforehand.
we have 5 open spots, and only 5 recruits left on our board... so the spots cant fill up (unless some recruit comes out of nowhere and decides to commit)
Aquaman, I feel the complete opposite feelings towards you that I am feeling towards Kyle Williams right now...and right now I wanna tie Kyle Williams to a couch and send him to East Lansing...so yea thanks for the pick-me-up!
Stress for the next week. Great.
You are awesome.
Thanks for the update. Now we wait. Fingers crossed.
Too many people going to the site, I can't see it. What does it say?
Nevermind, everything's okay now.
Hope the recruits swing Blue. They will be very welcome in AA.
Thanks for the great info.
I'm not sure how to read Diamond's recruitment right now, especially how his mom feels about our OL haul.
or I hope.
or I hope.
Tuesday will be a big day
Tuesday will be a big day
Armani even between OSU and Michigan, dropped PSU. Visit was good by Hoke.
Diamond even between five schools. No favorites.
I recommend clicking through, tremendous deserves the clicks.
screen name sucks.
As does he, as a person...
Tremendous your doing an incredible job, honestly I don't even remember TomVH posting this much info in such short time as well as how insghtful it has been. Great job
Tom would pump out info and then over time it gets less and less. He trickles it out over at ESPN, probably for page hits. I have ESPN and mess with Rivals right before signing day but this place always has more info than either. Plus both of their boards are god awful. ESPN's has no rhyme or reason to the order of posts and Rivals is premium Mlive.
You know I kind of agree with you on this one.
I got the cheap Insider account on one of the previous deals just because TomVH is there and OMFG that website is A. Terrible, B. I like to open tabs to read various articles and it always makes me re-sign in even if I sign in on the man page and C. The content is lacking, the updates usually consist of some BS interview w/ the commit/recruit that asks dumb PC questions.
I also find their readership to not be as informed as Mgoblog as any recruiting thread asks about or shots with Diggs or Dorial Green-Beckham (sp).
is it feb 3rd yet?
The sense around Arkansas is Michigan and Arkansas are his top 2
Josh Garnett just tweeted: "The visit was great everyone! Coach Hoke and Funk are so funny. They even said
@erikmagnuson77 and I can room together! :)".
I'll be posting RE: Garnett very soon, just about done chatting with him.
I am glued in on Reeves. Having Mattison be the last visit is big, but Urban is a good salesman of things "Bucky". I do not have great feelings about Diamond. I don't understand his recruitment. We all know he does have a favorite, but he can't say which ones are ahead of others. He also is waiting until after signing day?? The last recruit we went after who did this was Pryor I believe. His was much longer, but I don't have a good vibe from him.
How did you make way more recruiting connections than Ace in a fraction of the time? Is this real life?
- 1 month subscription to ESPN Insider
- Increased standard of Ohio hatred
- Snake Oil antibiotics
- Wife understanding the importance of the day
- 10 sick days allotted for the year un used
- Alcohol (For the good or bad)
Ready to go
I dont think he will be coming to Michigan. He is too afraid of competition. He is deciding on Feb 3rd? Sounds like he is waiting to see who all signs with which teams before he makes his decision. He's worried about everyone else instead of going with his heart. The kid is afraid.
Why would you say he is afraid of comp. His mom was the one to ask last time. I hate to say this but I am more worried about reeves. Good kid but his best friend from 2nd grade is going osu. I will be sweating that one
I have heard similar. If I understood correctly, Diamond really really wants M but his hesitancy is the number of linemen they already have.
Honestly, I think that's a really savvy move. If I were advising a prospect about where to go, I'd tell him to keep an eye on depth charts, and if he could get away with waiting for the dust to settle at his favorite schools, why not?
I actually think the Michigan depth chart will be appealing, too. Diamond is an OT, where the roster will be very thin and the only competition from this class could be Magnuson and Braden (and maybe Bars).
putting on my helmet. This is gonna be one heck of a week. Beat Ohio on the recuiting trail!
I just have this terrible gut feeling that both will end up at Ohio. Never underestimate the power of unrealistic promises to teenagers who watch TV.
Does anyone else think the coaches telling Garnett, he can room with Magnusson, pretty much makes him a done deal. :)
Coaches say stuff like that all the time, at any point in the process.
One thing we're not hearing on the recruiting trail is how MD is cleaning up nationally. LOL
lets not forget the snake oil salesman Meyer is coming to his tomorrow Thankfully Mattison is at his house Tuesday
Meyer's statement calling Mattison the best recruiter in the country will be tested here. I think the fact that he has the last visit is huge, as logic would lead you to believe.
Last I remember during Armani's OV, Mattison had him rolling because he was singing or dancing or something. There's a definite rapore with Greg already.
Urban's too stiff -- Mattison will bring him home :-)
Had a Sparty moment ...
"Yes, yes, this is Osbourne Cox, who the fuck is this?!?"
is the pec jiggle now considered "dancing?"
only in certain establishments i suppose...
This stuff is driving me nuts.
