Just saw that Scout announced a new FB commit. Judging from the topic headings on the Victors board it looks like it might have been Kellen Jones. Any non-premium confirmation out there?
Did Kellen Jones Commit?
i'm excited about it
Wow, you are quick. I thought he was coming up this weekend and may do it then.
I'm excited, but not quite to the point of the complete double rainbow guy.
I Am as exited as the double rainbow guy.....
If true, this is great. We need LBs, especially with the combination of power and speed that Jones has.
Nothing makes my day more than a "Hello" post.
I was always more of a victory UFR guy myself but the "Hello" posts sure do make an afternoon at work go better.
OMG! The defensive gods are smiling on us. This kid is a major talent, at a position of need.
Welcome to the family Kellen.
Wow this is shaping up to be an awsome class!!!
and hopefully the medical people can clear him to play football. He has a history of concussion so it's something that is not to be taken lightly.
Either way, congrats to Kellen Jones and welcome to the Michigan family!
Apparently being considerate about a person's health gets you negged. How many concussions has he had?
but it was apparently a serious one 2 years ago. michigan accepting his commitment tells me that they are convinced that he's ok to play.
from his profile on Scout:
"Jones plans to major in math and says he’s considering double-majoring in either chemistry or engineering. He reports a 3.4 core GPA and took the ACT on June 12."
Can't help but laugh. Good luck to the kid, but most nerds can't pull that off, let alone football studs.
Math + Engineering or Math + Chemistry is a pretty heavy amount of class for a student at Michigan, let alone a student athlete. I'd say he ends up sticking to just math.
Great news hearing of the commitment.
Majoring in engineering and playing football at the same time would give the player god-like status in my eyes. I hope he is successful at both.
Anyone remember Stefan Humphries or Chris Hutchinson? Academic All-Americans back in the day and both went to medical school.
No, I think he said he was going to double major in Math and SACKING THE QUARTERBACK.
This could be quite the class. We are in need of some strong LBs, and I hope Kellen can live up to his full potential. I'm hoping we can pick up Frost, as well. Awesome news.
This moment will be added to my happy place, along with the midget riding the wooden horse and my grandmother winning thousands of coins from a slot machine.
To take us into Friday. It seems that this coaching staff is really going after areas of need. Which, of course should be obvious.
Its Andre Brathwell
I hope you are kidding?
Andre Barthwell works for GoBlueWolverine
Why did I get Neg for that It Says on scout right now that michigan commit #9 is Andre Barthwell
dude, thats the writer of the article
Andre Barthwell is a writer for GBW
"GoBlueWolverine's Andre Barthwell gets "The Call!"
Jones' dad called Andre to tell him that Kellen dropped for Michigan...
"Michigan Commitment #9 by Andre Brathwell"
you a pos for giving me a good laugh... even though I am certain it was unintentional.
Thorough detective work none the less!
There are very few things that can get me to get out of a comfy chair and dance. This is one of them.
Someone go on facebook and cornfirm this
so you can't edit and we can make corny jokes at your typo.
aw shucks, the poor guy just wants to make sure theres not a kernel of doubt in this story.
Nothing wrong with a little Facebook stalking
sure Tim will cobble together a hello post soon
call it maizefirm
Whatever happend to mommatheregoesthe.....whateverelsecomesnext?
"Kellen Jones Commits to Michigan"
Kellen Jones must have seen the Wisconsin and Shazor highlights on the front page and decided thats all he needed to make a decision.
It is nice to get solid out of state kids that are also great students after two miserable years. Way to go coaches on the recruiting trail.
All your linebackers are belongs to us, eh hem, Kris Frost...
Dude is really quick off the ball in these here highlights
He's always in the backfield.
The kid's a badass. There must be electricity flowing through him because he starts to blink before every fucking play. Unbelievable!
Very good pick up for the team...Welcome Mr. Jones! We needed you real bad!
commit for RR & crew. Definitely pleasing to see another defensive player in this class...and a good student to boot. All smiles this way....
