Did anyone else catch Sam Webb saying he had a gut feeling on a def player today? Any guess of who it may be?
does one normally change in response to success?
Enchilada from T Bell.
So is the XXL chalupa, smashed those for 4th meal at 3 am last weekend.
I miss Denise. They should have made a whole series of Taco Bell commercials based around her.
Did you need utensils for the XXL chalupa?
It's good to go
Alan Trieu, Midwest recruiting director for Scout, says that it's Countess. FWIW.
Countess would be a great get.
He's a soft verbal. That entire poster's argument was based on the fact that he's not committed to Bama now because he wants to enroll early, and Bama doesn't have an EE spot for him. He's said, however, he's not going to enroll early. I don't really understand what that guy was going at, but stop freaking out. As of now, he's a commitment who's keeping his options open.
Yeh I don't really believe that. Unless Dee has been lying to Michigan insiders this whole year there is no chance. And Dee seems like a standup guy, I doubt he is fucking with us that hard.
You don't believe that Dee is a soft commit? He basically said if RR stays he will be at Michigan. I think that is a true soft commit in my book.
Not Countess. Sam said someone from the south that he was not expecting to come north. The name that comes to mind is Jernigan. Could be Mickey Johnson as well but not much talk of him in recent months.
Either way, I can almost guarantee it's not Mickey Johnson. Sam wasn't sold that Jernigan's recruitment was up, but I'd be very surprised if a week after supposedly eliminating M from his list he changes his mind and commits, especially before the coach is decided
If we got Mickey Johnson then Fred Jackson is a damn good recruiter. I wonder what he would say about his own recruiting ability.
It's Countess or Frost.
Countess AND Frost.
Judging from other scuttlebutt, it could be valdez showers. We could use a big CB to go with Crawford.
unless you're standing in Alpena
A friend of mine coaches at MHM and told me a few fans are really pushing the nickname Valdez "Golden" Showers.
From where I sit it, could be the worst or best nickname ever.
I'll only call him that if he ends up at State
My guess is Countess.
Countess or Bryant, that's my call
My guess is Coutness, but I wonder why he would wait and do it at the AA game?, but I will take any good news we can get. With the loss of Walls we need him!
What I got from the podcast was that he might have been expecting "good news" from the prospect, but it came much sooner than he had anticipated..moving up his timeline from the AA game makes sense.
Sam more-or-less said the other day that Bryant will commit to Michigan if RR is retained.
I didn't really think when I typed him in. Anywho, money's on Countess.
Anthony Goombarelli, 2* DT from Paterson, NJ.
.... if I heard correctly, it was about a defensive player from the South, and that despite all the coaching scuttlebutt, we could hear some good news before the New Year from this player.
IT SEEMS SO RIGHT
He's just been playing hard to get this whole time
sarcasm, yes? That would be beyond awesome, but Clowney is almost certainly a lock for USC (not that USC) or 'Bama.
but i cant make out who it is
he is execpted to be at practice on Saturday with Raymon Taylor. That would be a nice instate combo package!
I think Valdez might be the more valuable one here though..he has the ability to play FS with his size/speed combo, and I believe he's seen time at FS with Madison.
I want to be daring and Raback it... But, I dont thave those cahones...
People overuse "Rabacking it". He called it because he had inside information, it wasn't just a good guess.
Should I call it a "Guaranbrew"?
It's a Billy Guerin-tee.
Where has he been? I haven't seen him posting anything in months, but I could have just missed it.
I personally would take both Valdez and Blake...and Mr. Frost.
He comes in every now and then for the pos-bang.
There is a picture up on Scout of Valdez Showers so that is my guess as well.
Showers and Raymon Taylor are stopping by practice tomorrow.
3 star OLB from austin tx, he has been under the radar
As long as it's a good gut feeling and not a bad one.
Sam Webb's gut feelings are generally about upcoming commitments, not negative news.
Yeah that's true, just a little on edge about any news since lately it seems like we have more bad news than good.
If we locked up Countess, Lyons and Showers. Put 'em together with Delonte, Dallas and G. Brown and that's a nice secondary to team up with Cullen, Avery & Terrence for the future.
I just hope that Showers coming here doesn't have to do with Crawford opening up his recruitment again. If RR can lock these kids up, plus Frost and Zettel, he'd have a great class.
Although Tom Beaver said yesterday that Harbaugh coming to Michigan is a all but a done deal, so hopefully JH can retain some kids and bring in some studs too. Going to be a very interesting and fluid next 6 weeks.
Who is Tom Beaver and does he know more than other MSM members? Thanks, I have never heard of him;.
He used to be a moderator at The Wolverine.com a few years ago.
Tom Beaver says a lot of things..I wouldn't start worrying yet.
TB and DB can both F*ck Off!!! JH is an ass, and I'll never stop supporting Michigan, but I am sick of RR getting shafted by the Athletic department, media, and everything else in AA. He deserves better, and Dave Brandon's moronic idea of waiting until after the bowl is really pissing me off.
Fire Pizza Boy, and keep RR!!!
sorry guys, this is just about the dumbest thing i've ever seen an athletic department do and I needed a small rant.
huh? when did he say that?
Beaver is a hack. Bouje has more insight than that goofball.
Munchie Legaux... Transferring from Cincy to come play safety. His quote..."I think Michigan is a few dreads short of where they need to be on the defensive side of the ball. They were my first love and the Big East aint shit. I am taking my dreads, my awesome name, and my talents to Ann Arbor." BOOM!
He is Richard Ash's twin.
If Ash cut himself in half...
if dreads looked cool on a balding pudgy 30 something I would totally rock them
I'm hoping Countess comes. That kid is pretty good and doesn't seem to have any major deficiencies like a lot of the corners we've brought in over the past few years.
He was really showing us love during his visit on twitter. Didn't do as much on his other visits.
I agree with you. He seems like a solid, strong, all-around quality DB.
But Countess is the guy I'm hoping for as well.
is countess a much better prospect that either Showers or Taylor?
Yes. I believe Countess will be the real deal. The other two are both solid, but not as good as Countess.
To be fair, our corners have had just about every major deficiency imaginable. They've been short, slow, had "poor hips," been unable to play man, didn't understand zone, too young, position switchers, and committed armed robbery.
It could also be the young man from the bayou who is an SMU commit.
a huge surprise though?
Maybe Lyons...but unless Webb is blowing this too big, it has to be someone at that level.
I think the 'big surprise' was the timing of the commitment, not the magnitude of the player
I agree that what each of us "hears" from Sam is our personal interpretation, but I got the strong impression that the mystery guy IS somebody with a good resume, and somebody who hadn't given recent signs that he was going to commit to us. I don't think Sam would get all worked up over a low-2-star guy whose only other offers are Bowling Green and Grand Valley. Hope I'm right...
Highlights of the aforementioned DBs
does sam webb consider maryland the south? if not, my guess is james richardson. but i'm hoping he's lousy at geography and it is countess.
..Maryland is south of here, that's the gist I was getting. Could be Richardson, though.
I like any kid who commits at this point - it very likely means they're committing to UM and not to a particular coach. If they were that worried about a coach, now would now be the time to commit.
FWIW, Rivals has a new article up where Josh Helmholdt says that the rumors of Countess committing to Michigan are likely true they are just waiting for final verification.
