Just saw an article on the website of the newspaper-whose-name-we-dare-not-speak written by Josh Helmholdt who writes for TheWolverine.com. Article mentions a UCLA safety commit from Orchard Lake St. Mary's named Earnest Thomas who decommitted to stay closer to home and mentions a bunch of Big Ten schools and loosely refrenced Michigan and Little Brother as possible landing spots. Any of you who pay more attention than I do to recruiting know anything about him and whether he's interested in Michigan and whether the interest is mutual. He is obviously playing a position of need, from a good HS program and is pretty tall.
Earnest Thomas???? Recruitniks, whats the story?
a post about this kid last week... and a couple of people didn't think he was a kid that could play in the big 10...
+1 for the hilarity
that they're too short (defined as under 6 feet tall).
"Hilarity = it's funny because it's true". No offense intended amigo!
Maybe because it has been one of my major gripes I knew exactly what you meant.
I agree though, that he had been discussed and the general opinion seemed to be that he wasn't worthy of an offer at this stage considering the potential targets we have.
"Some." As opposed to "all."
Since Tacopants never actually caught any of Henne's passes, maybe he has remaining eligibility and should be switched to defense? Dude is tall.
Thomas will probably will be a last minute offer, if at all. Sean Parker is our #1 safety target. Thomas is reputedly a workout warrior whose on-field production doesn't match his off-field results.
The real question about Thomas is, is he as ripped as The Situation?
How dare you imply anyone is as ripped as The Situation?
But what if he is? Then we must offer and do everything to get him on campus.
The only was he is that ripped is if he was created by Zoltan the space emperor. In which case it would be his divine destiny to play at U of M. Problem solved.
You can hate on him all you want to, but what are you going to say to some who looks like Rambo with their shirt off?
I would probably ask him out to dinner, as friends of course.
Gym, Tan, Laundry.
He wouldn't be brought in as a safety. He's going to fill out and be a linebacker in college.
And *apparently* he's back on Michigan's radar because he had a good senior year and the coaches were impressed when they saw his senior film, similar to Hankins. Obviously no offer yet, it would be really close to Signing Day, I'd imagine.
for getting the name of the newspaper right.
Anyone know anything about Adrian Coxson? I just read he decommitted from Penn State and according to espn we were offered at one point...?
Florida lock apparently.
Apparently PSU has no room for a 4*/5* WR.
However, as mentioned, he seems destined to be a part of Florida's already disgusting class.
...is PSU having no room for a 4*/5* offensive tackle.
