George come back to us!!! OR we will have to elect a new mayor.
[George Campbell decommits]
his lost. he won't get 4 straight playoff championships.
No. 2 ranked WR George Campbell has decommitted from Michigan. He decommitted Friday, didn't want it out for awhile but that happens.

I'm writing something now on Campbell, but he said Michigan is not out of contention for him.

It's good to hear we are not out of contention, I guess. But how often do kids decommit and then say "original school is no longer an option?"
"There's always an uncle."
But all we have to worry about is winning early and often next year
Who knows what's going on but his uncle is his handler n I bet some shady programs have offered him something in return for Campbell's commitment but this is IMO only. But I thought Campbell was gonna be the lead recruiter like ferns or something?
Yup. As long as the NCAA is weak on punishment, cheating will happen. Especially in the south.
never cheat in the North. (Looks towards Ohio ...)
They are still south of where I'm at so....
Who are you, Tom Beaver?
Don't worry. I created him as a recruit in NCAA 14. He goes blue. He wins a Heisman and 3 Biletnikoff awards. Stay cool people.
I was worried for a minute. Did we win national championships in those years?
We go to 3. We win 2. I'm not going to spoil it for you.
Dude, how'd you blow one? I bet the guy who created Da'Shawn Hand for Alabama won 3 out of 3. How are we going to compete nationally with an effort like that? Step it up.
Time for the we are not winning thing to kick in!
I feel like a hot pile of meat just jumped off my plate and burned my face off
I still think he is 100% Michigan in the end..
I'd be more upset if he played any other position. Our 2014 WRs are very good.
6'3-4 WRs that run legitimate 4.3s and have the potential of Campbell don't grow on trees. Sucks but I can understand him wanting to see all the options out there for him.
I had a feeling he just got wrapped up in his great visit and jumped the gun when he committed. I am surprised it took this long to "look around".
I worried about the same thing when he committed. Seemed a little too early for a recruit of his caliber who lives as far away as he does. We will be fine. He says Michigan is still in contention for him, even if that does sound terrible compared to the fact that we already had him commited.
Good luck to him! im not going to roast a kid who is making the biggest decision of his life thus far. I hope he finds what he is looking for, either here or elsewhere.
Good news is that Jabrill is 100% Blue! Its the great part about recruiting, even if one decommits there is always someone who wants to play here.
I hate you for saying that about Jabrill in light of Campbell's decommitment. I know he said that earlier, but you're tempting the Gods!
to wishing him good luck.
On the other hand, his uncle can go straight to hell.
will do the same?
He still may join the class, but if he feels the need to look around it is really hard to begrudge him that.
I doubt the door will shut and the good guys may still come out on top here, let's take a deep breath and take the long view, there's still over a year until he would have signed.
Either way best of luck to hiom wherever he ends up as long as it isn't Ohio St. or Bama.
Yup, definitely being blown up on twitter right now. Wilton Speight tweeted out to the fans that he wants them to respect his decision and so our class. I love Speight. Seems wise beyond his years.
Well, hopefully mason Cole is still solid and we can still pull George in the end!
lets just all relax. with or without a certain commit, we will continue to root for and support Michigan. 1 player does not make or break a program.
Hopefully this is the last dong punch of 2013.
I can't take much more.
There's still a bowl game!
I'm more worried about next year's performance on the field. Hoke has been recruiting very well but you are not going to be able to continue to pull elite level recruits with a 7-5/8-4 record. Take care of business on the field next year and the recruits will follow.
Kids ranked that high from that far away are a risk. I never really figured Campbell would end up a Wolverine. Not with him being in SEC country.
I'm cutting ties with the kid if I'm UM. No reason to waste time and resources on a kid who probably will end up at FSU anyways.
Lets spend resources on kids that aren't as good as the good ones. Recruiting 101
class. Oh, wait there are. We just don't know there names yet. For all you know George Campbell could be George Jefferson at the collegiate level.
He could be, or much more likely he could be a pretty good collegiate WR because generally recruit rankings play out on the field. So it would be unwise of the coaches to cut ties because of some petty, childish feeling of getting slighted by a fucking 17 year old kid who isn't falling all over himself to play for a goddamn 7 win Big 10 team.
Man, he was one of the finest little-man wide receivers of his generation, but that was before Weezey fell on him and tore his ACL,and wrecked his back.
I'm glad you're so sanguine about this but 5* wide receivers don't grow on trees. This kid had the raw potential to be a generational talent
Don't be such a fickle, fair weather fan. Why don't you go root for MSU? Don't you know that everything is always a-okay with Michigan sports. Everything is a-okay! Youth! Inexperience! Troll!
Ummm guys, I can't start threads but Damien Harris just tweeted "Here comes the tough decision..."
I also don't know how to post tweets like earlier guys are doing. I suck.
He probably meant between Coke or Pepsi.
I get it. It's tough.
Please tell me you're the guy who tweeted that at him. I saw that a few minutes ago under the famous tweet. Also, I'd just like to make clear I don't follow the recruits. Just started following Campbell and Harris tonight to see if anything relevant came out.
Awww man. Unfortunately it was not me. I barely use Twitter.
I've always hated it.
page as well as "UM recruit". Umm, you might not want to freak out over every little tweet. Umm, okay?
Background is gone.
