This is one of those kids that loves the attention
Michigans class will turn out well no matter how you look at it. Coaches are doing a pretty good job at addressing needs. Go big blue!!
I can't believe he is on twitter. What an attention whore.
I generally hate when people criticize recruits because, well, they are kids who are way too young to be thrust in the limelight. But, I share this sentiment. To me this is just an annoying display of "please give me even more attention than I am already getting." don't like.
That said, I still hope he picks us.
How do I Tweet "Get off of my lawn" ? ? ? ?
Worst. Thread. Title.
You knew what this thread was going to be about
Exactly. Peek recruiting season and someone actually questions it.
This also isn't a Hollywood blog or a cocaine blog EricTheActor.
I go up and back on the reaction on this blog to the big blue thing.
Personally, I hate when we are referred to as big blue. We are blue, not big blue. We say "go blue" not "go big blue".
But enough people say big blue that it is probably a somewhat accepted way to refer to Michigan by the average non-fan. So, I won't get all worked up over it.
no photo of the little guy as your avatar?
Nor is is Kentucky
Jordan Diamond tweets his top 3.
This isn't his top 3....just the first 3. 2 more to come.
Here we go.You said Big Blue....
I am having a difficult time understanding how one could be "blown away"...
it is literal
Is that a terrifying whooshing sound I hear?
There is a new article on scout about Diamond but its behind a paywall. Title says he is looking shinier if that makes any sense but it sounds good.
Those who bleed Blue will come through in the end. That's all that matters.
I rate this thread 10 MLives out of 10.
Diamond's are forever???
I thought this thread was going go be about those awesome Kay Jewelers commercials.
Why can't Diamond just tell us who the other schools are already?
She'll pretty much have to.
at the end?
that is the joke.
The only good part of the thread.
No need to report until there is something to report...
in February. Get back to me on signing day. The rest is all reality show hype and drool.
he went to jared's?
I have to run and tell my neighbor.
I have to go get in my car, drive 47 miles to the nearest bus station, have it drive me clear across country to Seattle, Washington, then I have to get off the bus, book a plane flight, and fly to Japan, have dinner with the emperor (don't worry I will say that he went to Jared's), bow after the meal, and get on a boat to Australia, and then get in a hot air balloon to Nicaragua, and then jump on my schwinn bike back to my neighbors house and tell them "HE WENT TO JARED'S!".
I personally dont think Diamond is all that good... maybe has a lot of potential, but I would gladly take all the other guys we're in on way before him...
I think Diamonds ceiling is very high, but he needs work. His footwork, footspeed, Pass blocking skills arent developed yet. Kalis is more ready to play right now, but after a red-shirt year Diamond could be a beast.
We have some great O-line recruits, in this class already (though I wouldn't mind one more). Also, according to some our best one may end up being our jumbo TE, Williams (the kid destroyed D-linemen all year).
Maybe next time you could wait for the other two (of his top five).
Even if we were his number 1, I just dont think his film stacks up with any of the guys we have or are really in on.... maybe just my weird opinion, but who knows
If the coaches are really high on him, then i obviously trust them... just like who we have a lot
Fourth named is Wisconsin
Team Four is Wisconsin. One more to go.
Scout says we are in VERY strong position with him. So take it for what it is worth.
at position 1.
Michigan coaches visited Jordan yesterday so that would be kind of a slap to the face if we didn't make his top 5.
Edit: According to Mspeedkills
"You think I'm a loser? Because I have a stinking job that I hate, a family that doesn't respect me, and a whole city that curses the day I was born? Well, that may mean loser to you, but let me tell you something. Every day when I wake up in the morning, I know it's not going to get any better until I go back to sleep. So I get up. I have my watered-down Tang and my still-frozen Pop Tart. I get in my car with no gas, no upholstery, and six more payments. I fight honking traffic just for the privilege of putting cheap shoes onto the cloven hooves of people like you. I'll never play football like I wanted to. I'll never know the touch of a beautiful woman. And I'll never know the joy of driving through the city without a bag over my head. But I'm not a loser. Because, despite it all, me and every other guy who'll never be what they wanted to be, is out there, being what we don't want to be, forty hours a week, for life. And the fact that I haven't put a gun in my mouth, you pudding of a woman, makes me a winner!"
He's probably tweeting these in between madden and studying. And here we all are on pins and needles waiting for it. Sadly, I have nothing better to do! Other than watch American Muslim with my wife, haha.
I agree with everyone on this thread
As creepy as it is, I may have to start following this guy on Twitter.
It's not creepy at all. He wouldn't mind.
Shane, is that you?
Agreed. Too creepy.
Shane is actually one of the few recruits I follow. He seems to really enjoy talking to random Michigan fans and his tweets are usually hilarious.
For the record, I don't use it to communicate with him, just to read literally everything that goes through his mind. It's different, and not creepy at all. Maybe a little bit.
If he thought it was creepy, he'd make his twitter private.
Pretty sure that is what Twitter is for.
The Truth speaks the truth.
Well this thread will take a 180 now.
He saved the best for last.
This thread should have been posted at 10:06, as "Michigan in Jordan Diamond's top 5"
Hopefully he's saved the best for last! He definitely has an opportunity for early PT here so I hope he considers that in his decision.
That means that these are his 5 official visits?
Always save the best for last.
What does us being the final pick mean? C'mon psychology majors who are now in law school/grad school/some other field... or if anyone is a real psychologist.... put those classes to good use! WHAT DOES IT ALL MEANNNNN?
My apologies if it has already been asked and I missed it but has Diamond been on his official to us yet? I'd still prefer Garnett or Kozan but regardless I'd love one more top OL in this class.
I think Diamond is Ohio bound.
I think Diamond is Ohio bound.
I was fully expecting at least one Minecraft reference. MGoBlog, I am disappoint.
If you're following the Twitters, perhaps you noticed that Logan Tuley-Tillman just tweeted that he got offered by Urban Meyer himself, with an exclamation point!
Now might be a good time to buckle up.
He is really working hard to keep up with Hoke, huh?
Does this affect anything with him?
Didn't call it THE blah blah blah blah
If Jordan comes to Michigan, great.
If not, we will still round out the O-line class with a 4-star recruit.
We'll still have one of the top two O-line classes.
I am guessing Auburn will be his new favorite come Monday.
