I appreciate your knowledge.
Double Hello: Freddy Canteen & Brandon Watson
First 14 recruit under six foot tall.
Watson supposedly is 6'0" now, although if he's saying that, it probably means he's 5'11". Everybody exaggerates a little...
It's always great when someone chooses Michigan. But I'm a llittle concerned about their high school and its commitment to academics, because I want our kids to succeed off the field and on.
Let's hope they have reasonably good ACT/SAT scores. Eastern Christian Academy's teaching methods are pretty non-traditional. ECA sounds like a high school version of the University of Phoenix.
Word to the wise, just because someone posts a comment that you don't agree with doesn't make it "trolling". Gotta love this place
Maybe people just don't know the definition of "trolling."
To those who are uneasy about consuming one space on a limited roster with an unheralded recruit like Freddy Canteen, trust me-- there is no reason for fear. This kid has otherworldly footwork. When he gets on the field, he's going to be open 50% of the time no matter who is covering him.
Don't believe? Check out the video of him performing receiver drills: Even a football enthusiast who only played high school ball will immediately see and understand. Agility of this sort is extremely rare. And he's still working at it. Hard.
And based on every report I have read of the recent Michigan camp (where he was offered), this footwork translates into routerunning.
Can't wait to see Canteen in the slot. He's going to break some ankles.
I remember seeing an SI article on his school, and it turns out, they have the whole thing online. Heres some more insight into his school and what they do: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/magazine/08/22/high-school-footbal...
if these are players Hoke wants.....and gets.....then I am happy.
haven't seen it mentioned, but at a camp, you might get a feel for how coachable a kid is. very valuable and worth an extra star or two.
