During the ESPN U under armour coverage, a comment was made saying Gardner would not enroll early. However, a couple minutes later they did say Toney Hurd was committed to ND, minutes later in an interview, he said he was not even considering them. So who knows how up to date their info is.
Per ESPN - Gardner NOT enrolling early
Who the hell knows with this internet thing anymore
And Les Miles is our Head Coach...
Seems like the information is a bit equivocal. I was sure hoping Gardner would commit early. Spring practice would help us immensely.
Chris Balas on Rivals said that he talked to Gardner's coach and that Devin has enough credits to graduate, they're just working through some other stuff.
They need to work faster, because the winter term starts soon. As in next week soon.
The same network that claims to be impartial about the TTech story though one of their major analysts is right in the middle of it? Yeah, not trusting anything that comes from their news sources.
I'll wait to hear from Sam Webb and the UM boards.
somehow affiliated with ESPN? Yeah, best to wait for confirmation.
Okay, I trust Sam Webb, too. But isn't it a bit odd to distrust ESPN due to their employment of Craig James but then trust Sam Webb and other UM fans for accurate information? I think people on Michigan boards might be misguided by some bias, too...
a horrible comment.
my point was more that the local reporters and community are more likely to get accurate info on Devin's early enrollment status due to the fact they spend so much time on the beat, whereas ESPN just doesn't have the feet on the ground in the same manner. The TTech reference was off point, completely, but just watching talking head after talking head talk about how horrible Leach is, I had to throw in my $.02.
I agree with your last point. It seems like ESPN analysts loved Mike Leach for his ingenuity and his honesty, and now they think he's a tool.
Usually when ESPN is the first to report something, the opposite is true. So it's good to hear Gardner will be enrolling early.
ESPN, Michigan facts just keep rollin in and are always found to be true.
Signed Michigan Wolverines head football coach, Les Miles.
that the ONLY reason Devin picked Michigan is because of the chance to play early. I'm sure that played a part but wtf, ESPN is so full of shit.
He wanted to play Bball, but some ancient MHSAA rule cost players who play in HS all star games the rest of their HS eligibility.
According to rivals Gardner still has a chance to enroll early. He's got all the credits, it just comes down to Michigan's admissions department at this point.
They have until next Wednesday.
When am I gonna see the GOD DAMN Sail boat?!
I really want him to redshirt and this could increase the chances of that happening.
A quick check of the UM directory shows no Devin Gardner listed, fwiw.
Are there any rumors of Brian Kelly recruiting him? The sooner he is in the barn the better...
for getting everything settled. Not a good sign, considering its next week.
