gotta feeling some more good news comming as visitors trickle out of AA returnig home, any guesses on who we get or re confirm
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
According to Rivals. Posada reaffirmed.
Excellent news. We need a couple more of offensive recruits as well. I'm hoping for another OL, a QB, and a TE.
Defense we need to continue recruiting safeties, linebackers, and DL (specifically DT's).
I agree we need a TE in this class since we're down to 2 on the depth chart. Rivals has Heitzman listed as a DE but Scouts has him as a TE (unless you click on his profile then it says DE). I also see that Frank Clark is listed as a potential TE. Anyone know what kind of skills these guys can bring to the TE position?
Heitzman has stated he believes he will be playing DE, and the coaches talking with him (other than Hoke and Singletary) were Smith and Mattison, so it at least looks like he's more of a DE prospect than a TE.
That said, he's tallish (6'2"+) with the frame to be big, so as long as he can catch the ball he'd probably be a good TE.
Keep in mind there have been rumors of Ricardo Miller moving to TE, so we might not be as desperately in need of one in this class as it looks.
We need a OL and DL born in Michigan to see the light.
Great news. We have a lot of lineman that are juniors and seniors.
He wasn't in Ann Arbor. He was visiting UF - more likely that he committed there than reconfirming his commitment to UM while in Gainesville.
Glad to hear about Posada. Interested to hear about Willingham and McClure.
A lot of good news should be headed our way this year.
Maybe even this week.
I like the sound of that. Hoke and the gang are on fire.
Dennis Blundon on fire today!!!!
Seriously though, that would be great. It looks like Hoke is doing a great job filling out what a lot of people (myself included) thought might be a bit of a lost cause.
How much of that was just congratulatory?
I read that post in your avatar's voice and I felt a little guilty.
She's cool with it, I'm sure.
"Man, I'm not on yo team..."
I wouldn't smack Dave Chappelle / Prince's butt even if he was on my team and he was pulling his amazing basketball moves.
I honestly must say that I would love to have your job over these next couple of weeks. Wait... who am I kidding. I'd love to have your job every day of the week.
But you're too damn good at it.
I both love and hate your cryptic posts, but I do appreciate all the work that you have done. Thanks, Tom.
Tom what are you hiding?! Give us some sort of a hint!
Isn't that kind of hint enough?
No I need more! This is worse than crack for me. I don't know how you do it. I would be renting planes to put the info on Plan Banners, Smoke Messages, interrupting radio broadcasts, Everything. I give you a lot of credit for not spilling the beans....I guess that's why so many recruits feel alright giving you a TON of info. Glad your a UM fan.

Exactly. Tom's job depends on keeping that trust.
Someone needs an intervention.
directly following a post hoping for good news... That kind of cryptic I can handle.
one would think that would be enough of a hint, yes
For a while there was a good deal of chatter about Hobbi, but from what Rivals tells me he's only interested in ASU, UCLA, and USC.
Do you know if he would have received any attention from SDSU while Hoke was there, or would he have been too big a fish for the Aztecs to go after?
The good news probably won't be much of a surprise. You can probably figure out what it might be.
Tom is probably referring to the Jan 28th announcements of Bryant and Clark. Tom, any preview about McClure and Willingham?
I'll have updates on them tomorrow in the Weekly Update. McClure could decide midweek this week. Willingham might decide this week, too.
Thanks Tom for the update, can't wait to see what you have to say tomorrow in your weekly post.
Not much been said other than speculation by us peasants.
I could care less about Fisher......he is lazy and beats up on munchkins in northern MI. He is no big loss in this class
A. I think you mean 'couldn't' care less
B. I bet if he was still firmly committed to us you would be ecstatic about it.
First post on Mgoblog and you're bashing a recruit. Classy.
until i have reason to believe otherwise, i'll assume he's an MSU or OSU fan and neg him on sight.
jake, we'd love to have you.
Neg bang party.
Between your post and your handle I'm having trouble deciding which is more classless. Let's just go ahead and call it a tie, shall we?
NEG HIM! NEG HIM TO BOLIVIA NOW!!!
Let's not forget Thomas Rawls announcing on the 31st !
Tom, Justice is trying to scoop you. He said one more plans on committing.
man i think Justice Hayes is taking your job lol. dude you're doing a great job your keeping me sane.
Just curious could we have Hayes in again next weekend, say for an unofficial visit? I'm sure we can find a place for him to stay. We need to get Hayes in Raven's ear because he'd be huge for this class IMO.
