This thread should just be named 'Mind of Magnus'...
I feel a new regular series coming on . . .
Nah, that would be derivative.
I think I'm going to contact Farrell about a series called Mike and Magnus Mind Meld. That's even more alliterative, with the added bonus of include me. What more could you want?
Are we still presumed to lead for McDowell?
And right there for Bryan Mone.
And mone to the last two classes of dlineman. Think about it and try not to be excited.
Yeah - that would be incredible. Wanna get really excited? Include DeShawn Hand.
Are you saying our defense could use a Hand?
Larry Foote isn't here anymore, so why not!
Butt is going to have his Hand full with Taco, so he's going to have to be sly like a Fox or else it's going to be an up Hill battle for playing time and he'll have to Ward off some challengers. I just hope these guys can stay out from behind Bars and stay on the field between two Ferns in 2016.
I Gant wait for the 2013 season to see these guys put up their Dukes. Let's Gedeon already!
Triple M of Mone, Marshall and McDowell would be fantastic for 2014.
I just saw Mone's eval on Tremendous and concur 100% with the summary (likewise D is my area and Mone is an "oh shit" prospect). The other 2 are solid and could become beasts with enough speed & agility training.
I agree with you on Mone, but I think McDowell is a little better than "solid" already. He's far from a finished product (like most HS juniors) but he's a full-on man already.
It is an expected visitors list after all.
But you're making very "new" mistakes that are annoying to many posters...just throwing it out there. Don't shoot the messenger. It happens every day where some new person doesn't read...their post gets negged, they keep posting, they get negged, then they make some rant about MGoBlog being exactly what people say...and that post gets negged. And that's how it ends.
You asked about Green. This thread is an expected vistors list. If Green isn't mentioned, then he's not an expected visitor considering all of the expected guys are mentioned in the original post.
Also, through a little research, you'll find that Green took his official visit during the MSU game this year.
Pretty sure if he was, it would be listed.
The real question is if Kyle Bosch is enrolling early?
How many scholarships do we have left?
I think we lead and will get Dawson and Green.
I think McQuay "shocks" folks and goes to Vandy to play for Coach Franklin, but he'd be my next guess as the third spot.
I believe that's all the room we have...but if we don't get McQuay and we assume we get the first two...who gets the third spot?
I'm going to assume that if Lewan leaves it opens up a 4th spot and we'll take an OT that has been mentioned in the OP, so I'll consider that a "wash."
So back to that third spot...if it's not McQuay (and no, not Treadwell)...who is it?
If we don't get McQuay, I'd assume the last spot goes to a DB - maybe Reon Dawson, maybe Delano Hill, maybe one of the other guys we've been talking to but aren't as high on the list. Tim Harris would be a great pick up.
a 6th offensive lineman? Reon Dawson? Delano Hill?
Reon Dawson, Delano Hill, a couple LB prospects, and another OL are all on the board still.
We have 24 spots right now, 25 if Lewan leaves, more if there are other departures. I'm expecting at least one more opening.
There are 22 kids committed.
So we have 2 or 3 spots left.
I think Devin Gardner has an unbelievable bowl game against South Carolina, going 48 of 60 for 6 passing TD's, 560 yards, and 1 INT. Roundtree, Gallon, Dileo, Funchess, Denard, and Darboh each get a TD pass and each has over 70 yards receiving. It's clear, though, that Gardner's passing makes them play much better than they would otherwise be capable of.
With Devin's rushing touchdown, the final score is 49-21 Michigan, and Treadwell realizes that if an 8-4 Michigan can beat up on a 10-2 SEC team, the SEC as a conference is a bit over-rated (Ole Miss included). Gardner gets cleared for his medical redshirt during the postgame presser, and it becomes clear to Laquon that our passing game is a perfect fit for him. He picks us on NSD.
Also, Jake Long unearths a previously-unknown eligibility loophole and comes in (healthy) to fill in after Taylor Lewan is the 8th pick in the NFL draft. Dawson commits immediately after his Ohio State visit in January, and Green also chooses Maize and Blue. We also end up with Hilliman as a corner and E.J. Levenberry comes into the fold. This puts our class into second on Rivals.
Oh, and Alabama beats ND in the MNC game, 49-6.
You really think ND will score 6 pts vs Alabama?
I know we post "hello" and "goodbye" threads on recruits/players but if Dawson recommits does Ace/Brian post a "Welcome Back" thread?
If so - have we ever seen one of those before?
BWC was a welcome back, not sure what the post title was exactly though.
What Conley liked about Michigan in the first place was that we offered him a scholarship and no one else did. He committed before coming to campus, so I don't see why coming to campus will help him realize that anyway.
Such a tease
