Five 2013 football recruits already listed in U-M directory
Cool abbreviation, bro.
Connecticut School of Broadcasting.... duh!
He is so excited about this news that he Cant Stop Beating it.
Cool Summer Breeze
I am assuming they just missed his name or he is not in the system yet.
I was trying to think of who the sixth EE this year was and you nailed it. Thanks.
Kyle Bosch is enrolling early?
When I looked at the title of this thread, I figured that FB stood for fullback and I wondered if we were planning on taking MANBALL to a whole new level
the freep is creepy
i just came back to this thread again, and wondered as it loaded whether anybody would've responded with "freepy" yet. i can dig it.
that two of the "project" recruits (Taco and LTT) are EE. Get them in the weightroom and with the coaches as soon as possible.
I don't think he is a project. That's up from 233 when we started recruiting him and he had an outstanding senior season.
Again from TTB's excellent recruit tracker series: 116 tackles, 24 TFL, 19 sacks
I'd guess they let him be an every down guy last year
Just because he put on weight and put up big stats doesn't mean he's not a project still. He hasn't played a whole lot of true DE (he's played a lot of pass rush OLB) and reportedly needs a lot of work against the run.
That's not a big deal though, because we'll have upperclassmen ahead of him for a couple years while he perfects all that stuff. Really, the way it's supposed to be.
Ahhhhhhhhhh, bliss. Isn't it nice?
in the community, too.
I thought he was an OSU lock once Meyer got there?
Oh, he is. He's just trolling us. He's gonna become and All-American and then, BOOM, transfer to Ohio. It's all part of Meyer's plan to stick it to UM.
they didn't want him.
Can I trust that someone is constantly monitoring for Derrick Green being listed in the U of M directory? Funny that Brian was just joking about this on WTKA this week.
I think the guy people will be watching for is Leon McQuay, but I think most of the recruiting sites are pretty pessimistic about him ending up in Maize and Blue.
I wouldn't say that just yet. His dad was recently quoted saying that he "would not be surprised" if Leon ended up in Ann Arbor, and it seems to be a two horse race at this junction between Michigan and Vandy, with USC and FSU on the outside looking in. Apparently Mattison is putting on the full court press. McQuay is a playmaker, and the fact that Mattison coached Ed Reed (who is a playmaking safety like McQuay) definitely helps his cause.
His dad says a lot of stuff.
Great news, those guys will have a jump start at possibly getting some PT next season if needed.
Green or Treadwell or Burrows or someone else suddenly was listed.
Strange that Freep would check the list and report this useless info. Normal that we would read and comment on it.
So three of those guys can be backdated correct? The others count toward the 2013 class no matter what?
I think that more than 3 can be backdated if the previous class is smaller than 22. It's very complicated and I don't claim to understand it all, but Texas A&M has a class of 30-something coming in after a small class last year and I've heard that they will be backdating more than 3 scholarships. I think the reason that UM could only backdate 3 in the past was stictly due to numbers.
would an offensive linemen enroll early?
same reason any other postition would? Get acclimated to university life, get in the weight room, learn the playbook, and try to work as hard as damn possible to help the team and themselves get better.
Not sure if you're serious or not???
He needs technique and he wanted to be in Ann Arbor as quickly as possible. Can't blame him.
These two recruits will have 6 extra months to prepare for college football while being in the college life. by the time spring practice rolls around these guys will have damn near a semester behind them and advanced training just from being around the team early.
Maybe to get a head start on school, college level strength and conditioning, getting acclimated to college life. Also, maybe he thinks if he enrolls early he can get a spot on the 2 deep with how thin out oline depth is. Even if he redshirts maybe the extra 6 or so months help come next year.
Is this sarcasm?
I mean, obviously all the football stuff. But what 17-18 year old wouldn't want to come to college as soon as possible for all the obvious social reasons as well?
sometimes recruiting is just fucking creepy...
What's nfm? Also, directory.umich.edu is open to the public. Not that big of a deal, really.
This will no doubt help. LTT and Bosch as EE is going to help build quality depth on the o-line
When these guys enroll early are they considered part of the 2012 class or the 2013 class? I thought the total number per academic year allowed was 25. Since there was 25 in the last class it seems they must be in this class, no? How many can we take in total this year?
Both Georgia and Texas A&M has over 30, how does that work? Are the additional signees this year the number under 25 they had in the previous year? It doesn't seem to make much since to be able to do that since 25X4=100...not 85. Sorry for my ignorance.
As far as I know, provided the previous class for a given school was under the limit, you can back count early enrollees up to the scholarship limit of 25 for that year. It is not something you have to do, or necessarily can do if the limit was already reached. Since we were at 25 for 2012, they would need to be counted as part of 2013's class, I believe.
Thanks, so then since we have 24 verbals we only have one open spot with 25 guys signed from last year, or does that year also back date, etc.? We must be missing something because I've heard we still want another OL and there's no way we turn away McQuary or Green just because Hunt or another OL commits.
Well I know Bolden and Wilson enrolled early last year. So at least two from this year should be able to be counted in last year's class.
It's been a few years, but I still don't really click on links to the Freep unless it's an accident.
Big Jake Butt also just graduated from high school and will be enrolling.
You're just too stupid and lazy
Taco and Douglas are both news to me. Hadn't read that they were planning to do this.
It is great these kids are committed and enrolling early. Very positive for their development. My question is how this has changed over time. Was early enrollment something that happened 10-15 years ago, and I just didn't notice? Or is this primarily a new millenium thing?
