Erick Smith & Marshon Lattimore to Ohio State
He's going to University of Ohio State
Is going to "the university of LSU"
*The Univeristy of Louisiana State
it's Buckaroo U.
On lattimore w his pick and then verbally said they are going to play together. So no need to get any hopes up
Actually, to "The University of Ohio State" Good ol' UOSU
it's THE University of Ohio State University.
University of Ohio State to be exact
Never heard of it...
SHOCK THE WORLD!
Nice work E. Smith.
I was hoping for another commitment to the University of LSU.
he trolled us by taking a mini swipe toward the Michigan hat, before grabbing the Ohio one.
We are MGoWise to the Ohio Troll
Can't wait to watch D. Harris burning him long!
Assuming you mean Drake Harris.
But Damien Harris, it seems like we're holding onto him for dear life.
Where is this Damien Harris talk coming from? News to me.
May be just me looking for things to worry about but he took down his Michigan twitter background and anything that mentions Michigan on his profile.
That, him tweeting "I have a tough decision now" the day of the Campbell decommittment and him rooting for the buckeyes openly last night makes me wonder.
I have a tough decision now.
Taco Bell or QDoba
Shouldn't be a decision between those two ever
Taco bell wins every time
Out here in New Mexico we just call it "Taco Hell." I would imagine that over in south Texas - home to some of the best REAL tacos on the planet, they have much worse descriptors...
Nobody has cleaner restrooms than Taco Bell
Because they need them.
Sorry I only eat authentic Mexican. That's why I go to Taco Bell for a Grilled Stuft Nacho and an Enchirito. Nothing more authentic than that.
What about Pancheros or BTB?
IF it's true that Harris took down a Michigan twitter background and anything that mentions Michigan, and IF it's true that "I have a tough decision now" was about football and not what to eat for dinner, and IF it's true he was openly rooting for OSU, then I wouldn't be so dismissive of the possibility he's having second thoughts, especially given how our season concluded. One game usually won't affect a recruit's thinking; a season full of suck can.
*Edit: I'm never on twitter, but Elhead's post below about Harris "rooting for OSU" removes any reason to be concerned about that.
Quit looking at high school kids twitter profiles. You'll be a happier person.
I guess I need to shut down my account since I'm a senior in HS.
EDIT: removed any mention of how young your avatar makes you look.
concern trolling is the most annoying kind of trolling.
He took Michigan off his Twitter page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, there's zero evidence of Damien wavering even a little bit. You can relax on that one.
TUOS! The meme created by MZone back in 2008 lives again!
Terrelle Pryor saying the samething when he held his presser. Believe they got it from his mistake.
I was hoping that he was going to Michigan University. Damn.
THE Michigan University
Can I unbuckle now??
Our recruits announce on Vine
No-one was really surprised by this, right?
The title of the thread is erroneous. He's going to Ohio State.
Also, his name is Erick.
Just like the University of Ohio State, which you seemed okay with. Oh well.
Hey, if we're going to knock a 17-year-old kid for his inaccuracies, then we should hold ourselves to just as high of a standard.
Perhaps we all should. Might make us all better. As an English major nothing irritates me more than this.
"Might make us all better."
Well, if we're going to critique everything that anyone says, then the above isn't a complete sentence. As an English major, what's your excuse?
The bottom line is that you got your point across, and so did Erick Smith. If the point is to communicate effectively, both of you have done your job. If the point is to use pristine vocabulary, syntax, grammar, etc., then we're all failures on a regular basis.
...so clever. But with Lattimore shocking the world and imminently picking Michigan today...it surprises me that Smith doesn't want to play with Lattimore in college.
Lattimore too! Wow...duped again!
Never expected him in the first place. He was just doing the typical "we're going to shock the world with our pick" to build up hype, then pick the lame favorite all along.
Scout and the other recruiting sites were playing along to gather more clicks. Lame.
If Fickell is still their DC after this it won't matter, so I'm not too concerned.
No. No he does not suck. Pretty good actually.
Urban and his staff can't coach up the talent anyway. All these top 5 classes going to waste. /s
And he let it out that Lattimore is going to play there as well.
I've watched a little to seem McDowell and Mason Cole, but it's pretty boring without significant Michigan influence.
I will say this, Kyle Allen is LEGIT. That kid is going to be a beast at Texas A&M.
Smith isn't even that highly rated but because he's committed to almighty Urbz they've shown him 15 times since he announced.
Why are you dogging Marshall, Mone, Ferns, Winovich, Cole, Harris, and Canteen? They're all rated as 4-star prospects by Scout.
Just like Smith is.
He's a great player for sure. I'm just saying I've seen him more than I saw Fournette the other day.
@Damien_D1Harris : Regardless of if I'm committed to a school or not, I'm still a fan of college football. I can cheer for whoever I want. End of story.
What's the story behind this?
I think a lot of people jumped on him during the Ohio State/Clemson game for making a positive comment about Ohio State.
Another example of why I hate Twitter. And people for that matter
Adult college football fans being able to read the thoughts of HS recruits is the worst thing to ever happen to college recruiting. It puts the world's finest mouth breathers in direct contact with 16 and 17 year old guys
And makes you wish they'd all move to N. Korea and never have any contact with anyone but each other ever again.
This is has already been posted and has no meaning other than he was cheering for OSU last night and some stupid Michigan fans probably called him out for it. Who the hell cares, he's entitled to have his own opinions.
the dude can flat out recruit. For example, he's come down to the DFW area and grabbed the top player the last two years.
With his overall coaching record and two national championships to boot, he ought to be able to recruit well.
Hoke would be reeling in the 5 stars if his team won 11 games this season! God, I hope our team improves and win 10 next season. I think recruiting will go much better if we do! But realistically we will have another meh year in 2014. I think 2015 has some hope for at least 10 wins and a BCS bowl.
Are inevitable. Smith and Lattimore were never coming here.
Urban trick. Make it seem like you have interest in a rival and the declare your interest.
News flash. Urban. This is not 2009.
Gotta focus more on developing the players we get and improving coaching- recruiting only gets you so far
on 4 and 5 star recruits. MSU has proved you can win with much lower rated players.
In the past three years have we had a 4 or 5 star recruit that made a difference?
Blake Countess, Raymon Taylor, James Ross, Jake Butt, Devin Funchess...
Don't be a dolt. This is first time in 20 years MSU made it to the Rose Bowl.
Consider this world shocked. Good job, boys!
What movie was this from? I have forgotten.
If the chances of getting Malik McDowell and Jeffrey Jones to commit to Michigan are not too good, and with no other highly-rated, uncommitted prospects from the 2014 recruiting class showing any real interest in Michigan, will the recruting efforts now be limited just to not losing any of the current commits, and keeping the 2014 class at 16 student-athletes?
Will any scholarships be kept open for potential graduate transfers from BCS schools or some of the top FCS schools who have substantial playing experience, still have a year of eligibility left and might be interested in a MIchigan graduate program that's not available at their current school?
Lost me about halfway, who rapped who?
Is a very intelligent post:
FUCK OHIO STATE
I hope these two have a healthy 4 years and enjoy going 0-4. Shit is gonna start changing, starting next year in toilet town.
Isn't just calling it Ohio a lot easier?
These kids were never coming to AA. Their visit for UTLII was a field trip and Ginn Sr is simply trying to keep UM interested in Glenville kids.
It seems the trolling of "rumors for UM" snagged a few folks.
Not sure if serious?
Shock the World (tm)
Yea Right, and Grizzly Adams had a beard too !
Stave Harvey. Their football players have been letdowns as has their egomaniac coach.
Well, Troy Smith did win the Heisman, and a few guys have been 1st round draft picks. There aren't any Hall of Famers, but that's still pretty good.
Unfortunate for us, but we will be ok without them. Good luck Erick and Marshon.
when they make a mistake. . .
This has to stop why would these kids go to Ohio? I have no clue. I know UM has a much better degree to offer than Ohio but those kids are not going there to play school this is all about football. Winning will fix everything and hopefully we have a good year next year. Once Hoke builds it they will come. Going forward it will be much easier to win with the kids Hoke has recruited when they become upper classman. Ohio had four Sr's headed to the NFL on their O line this year. They will probably replace those four Sr's with three more who have plenty of game experience. Remember that? when we just put the next guys in line in, who were capable or more than capable than the guys in front of them. Thats what the teams we are getting beat by have the luxury of doing. I personally can't wait. GO BLUE!!!
