and chris barnett told me "kentucky in my eyes" im so confused right now you dont even know
Isn't Zeke Pike from Kentucky? Maybe he changed his committment? if this is a real hint only person I can think of is Zeke
That was me on twitter trying to get Tom VH to talk. Thank you Tom VH you also make us very excitied
Chris Barnett after discussion of good things happening soon:
@TomVH i have belief in a kid from kentucky
i wonder if it's Zeke again
Very intriguing. Don't know what else he would mean. He and Zeke are supposed to be friends.
Godin and he said thats not who he was talking about and i just looked at the prospects from kentucky and only Zeke makes sense
committed to another school and he said lol maybe
Sneaky ass kids and their secrets...j/k
I can't handle all of this speculation and excitement, I NEED TO KNOW!
he said he tries to get kids to commit before they get too solid
To continue the tradition of taking two players at the same position around the same time, Zeke is decommiting from Auburn to commit play LB (he also plays LB in high school) at Michigan.
Oh yea, and there will be flying pigs.
If it really is Zeke, then that probably means bad things are coming Auburn's way.
On Scout, Pike's a 5*, the number 3 QB in the country. He's the only Kentucky player with a Michigan offer.
The next best player is Patrick Towles, a 3*, number 23 QB.
Lloyd Carr redux, assisting with the defense.
Im not going to worr about it then because I know in the next couple weeks we should be getting a couple solid recruits. If so, I like the way Hoke and Co. have been recruiting so far.
But then again...the curiousity if getting to me!
With so many Ohio DEs expressing interest in Michigan lately, I'm guessing that one of them decided it was time to get on board.
I'm starting to wonder if Michigan is going to have a numbers problem with this class. It's a good problem to have, I grant.
EDIT: Another possibility: We're getting a pony!
I don't like all this "I know something and can't tell you" stuff, but you guys are going to ask. The first one this week will be very public. I'm not going to say anything else.
..is "The first one this week will be very public ", meaning more than 1 big surprise?! Oh gosh I feel like a 6 year old on Christmas morning waiting to open that monster present hidden behind the tree!
It's recruiting season?
Warning: NSFW language in clip
I've tried about analyzing the cryptic undertones of this comment and don't even know where to begin.
this is hard i think maybe the kid has a twitter and will lead clues to it but thats as far as ive gotten
Just post the information without permission. Who's gonna mind?
/BOOM. Dayton Daily News'd
The Tom has spoken. All praise the Toooommmm!!!
Do either of these have any connection to the silent commit?
Well said Tom. Thanks for being clear in the matter. Like always, great work.
Jim - Are you getting a great recruit this week Brady?
BH - "There's no question Jim."
Long time reader first time poster. Really enjoy the information and commentary.
As far as who the Good News could be, first who its not. Godin and Thompson will be nice additions but not next week as they have both already setteled on a later date to announce. While Pharoh Brown would be a nice addition he does not quite warrant the "Best in the Midwest" comment that Trieu suggested. Gunner would be amazing, but he really didnt let on like he was ready to commit, especially for a kid with his talent that hasnt taken too many visits as of yet. Gunner wont be for a while. Diamond could be in my estimation a silent commit type as he has eluded to the fact that his late decision time table and plethora of visits to the South is more for his high school teammates to gain exposure. This finally comes down to Ross, Wormley, or Day. Hopefully all three will eventually be in the class but my guess would be Day.
Is it positive that "Good News" is a commit? Possibly a confirmed visit from say . . . Dunn??
I think I remember hearing Day was going to commit much later. Now that Joe committed there is no real reason for Ross to go so quick.
HOWEVA for the guy CBarnett was talking about...he mentioned Kentucky, big time, and that it wasnt Goldin. Sounds like Zeke but I just cant picture him flipping so quickly.
If I understand right one should be sometime mid week of this week and the other should be in about 2 weeks?
Did anyone ever hear how Mattison's visit w/ Bri'onte Dunn went or if it even happened?
Is that slang for the valley or ghetto ?
Wormley, Diamond, Ross, Kiel...
Can't believe it would be Pike...I mean, he just committed! But Kentucky...is there anyone else we are recruiting from there?
Well, this at least makes this weeks anticipation level skyrocket...always fun!
take a look at the kids from kentucky http://recruiting.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=9&c=11&cfg=null&yr=2012&pid=-1&ss...
Hmm only one name from there sticks out. Maybe he means Ohio, or Michigan...or Maryland? All signs point to Pike! But its just too hard to believe.
anyone else because he supposively has connections to Zeke and he said Kentucky a bunch of times
But Pike just committed. If he flipped I can't see it being this soon. Did't he also want eraly playing time? If DG gets a redshirt for last year Pike probably wouldn't start until 2015. The only way he could start sooner is if DG gets injured or Pike beats him out.
If they can stall on a five star linebacker, they can stall on a big time wh, too? Isn't Pike a high four star?
Auburn has a 5 star QB that was in their recruiting class last year. Pike would have competition regardless of the school he signs an LOI with.
The check Pike received from Auburn must have bounced. He's going Blue now!!!
Those Auburn paying player jokes get old pretty quick and I dont even like Auburn.
When Zeke Pike committed to Auburn everyone was quick to jump on him like "Auburn must be paying you good money" and I all I could think of besides classless was good luck trying to get him to switch commitments.
aha, didnt barnett play basketball? maybe were thinking of the wrong sport and the entire 2011 recruiting class for UK is decomitting and coming to U of M
If Tom's tweeting about it, I doubt it's basketball-related.
i feel your pain guys
Just let things play out. Tempered optimism is the way to go.
Sorry, last thing on this. Chris Barnett is talking about something different than what's happening this week.
Do you know everything that is happening in the world? It would help my ego if just once you'd say "That's news to me; I have no earthly idea what in the hell this guy is talking about." It would make me feel a lot better about always being the last to know things.
