Looks like we could be getting our first commit of 2011. I am a subscriber to Rivals - not sure if I am allowed to say who. Anyone know the rule on this?
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Tell us, the end.
But I'm going to make a guess:
His last name is similar to a guy who had a lot of HEART for us a few years back?
As long as you're not quoting from the article, you're good.
OK, it's a corner. That's all I'll say until I know I can release it.
Rivals gets really pissed when you do that, actually.
Actually I have no subscriptions, but looking at scout and rivals it's obvious it is Brown.
Yeah, it's Greg Brown - nothing official yet.
I find the picture is usually a decent indicator. Did someone commit? With X recruit's picture going along with the article. Chances are that person committed.
The world in general seems to be actively conspiring to overload MGoBlog into submission this week. TOO MUCH NEWS TO COVER ARRGH.
Still good news, yo.
Yeah, I figured it was obvious but I know Rivals gets pissed about that kind of stuff. Good news for sure...he has some decent offers already.
I have heard that he is pretty good, nice get for us.
Wait until the shit hits the fan and they found out he's the president of the Michigan chapter of Baby seal clubbers!
Who's setting up the pool for who the first decommit is?
He must be a 5 star that will end up a 3 star.
Texas has 20 commits already.
All Sarcasm is done.
Does anybody have an idea where this kid might be in the rankings?
Considering he had immediate offers from MSU, Michigan, Oregon, and CMU, I'd say he's probably a 4-star-ish player.
While Rivals is right on the ball saying he's from Ross, Oh, I'm not sure there is such a place.
He's actually from Fremont.
Fremont Ross High.
Does anyone else recognize the place?
Perhaps all I should need to say is Most Spectacular Leaping Interception in the History of the World, for people who need a little hint.
Anybody who knows who Greg Brown is probably knows that he's from the same high school as Johnny Thompson. Duh!
I am a die hard Buckeye fan with the utmost respect for the Michigan program. It kills me when I see all the controversy surrounding your program, especially as of late. But I've been on this board a lot debating whether to get an account or not, and I must say I've enjoyed reading some of your discussions almost more than my fellow buckeye fans on bucknuts.
With that being said, I hope I can get along with you guys on this board.
In regards to Brown. I'm from Fremont. Graduated from Fremont Ross 5 years ago. I've never had the pleasure of meeting or knowing Brown but have seen him play. He is a phenomenal talent but will need to develop physically to play at the next level. He might be 5'11 but looks to weigh around 160lbs soaking wet. I understand he is only a Junior and will have plenty of time to mature and develop. If he does so than I must say, you guys have got a great player in the making.
However. Like I said before, I've never met the kid. But I still have family who attend the school and a few who have played with Brown. From what I've been told (and this was before his commitment to Michigan, no biased here) he is an excellent student, but is a complete and total head-case on the football field. I hope the accusations are false because I would hate to see a player from my high school represent us in a poor way. My advice to you, as a fan base, be excited about his potential but pray that he is able to stay out of trouble. Its not uncommon for Fremont athletes to ruin their opportunities before they have ever unfolded.
Sorry for the long post fellas. Look forward to some good discussion with you guys. Good luck tomorrow!
