Hello: Grant Newsome please! HUGE get for the good guys. Also: Posbang!!
Grant Newsome commits
to post this gif somewhere
these made my day...thank you.
Well, yours is kind of incorrect. It starts as Vegeta hair and then goes to Goku hair. Mine not only goes SSJ1 but SSJ2!
Still, happy gifs.
He has a younger brother named Gaines. So awesome.
Please stop discriminating against Garrett, you bastard.
Wow, kid has a great head on his shoulders! Welcome aboard, Grant!
Grant sounds like a great person as well as an elite football player. Very classy statement. He'll make a great Michigan Man.
thank the other teams for their efforts like that and to acknowledge coach franklin and the fan base. That's quite a magnanimous move from such a young man. . . I'm glad he's one of ours!
the statement says a lot for the type of person he is as well as the way his parents raised him.
Welcome and good luck Grant.
But his misspelled Hoke, Malleo, and Rienzo. Word never lies.
Seems like a class act
He's a good writer. When I was in high school, I couldn't string more than two coherent sentences together.
Funny, I was thinking the same thing. He should at least give a decent sounding interview, right?
I didn't know it was "could have" instead of "could of" until I got to college, and I had a 3.98 GPA in high school (one B in English, of course!).
For all intensive purposes, though, I think people understood you.
Welcome aboard Grant.
Does Michigan ever lose a football game again? That is the only question.
UM been doing good in Virginia.
he's from New Jersey
I've always wanted to go to California!
He's from McLean, Virginia. He goes to a private school in New Jersey.
Goes to school in NJ but he is from VA
Welcome aboard Mr. Newsome!
(Unbuckles and breathes again)
Great pickup! Welcome to the family Grant! Never a bad thing getting a rock solid OL commit especially with the last couple classes Hoke has brought in.
Yes, look how terrible OSU is because they don't get kids from the South. Remember how bad USC was under Carroll since they weren't raiding FL, GA, and TX?
Always with the negative waves, Moriarty!
We can haz nice things? Welcome Grant!
Suck it Franklin!
What? What happened?
Virginia, who knew it is the new breeding ground for UM?
Welcome to the Blue young man.
Did New Jersey change it's name to East Virginia?
But seriously, and to your point, having opened up NJ, MD, and VA over the last few years has been tremendous.
B1G FOOTPRINT BABYYY.
were you watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse as well.. My daughter loves that show
Great news, makes it even better that it strengthens the Virginia pipeline.
Edit: And the NJ pipeline, two for one!
and NJ pipeline in particular are going to take off when Peppers gets on campus in a few days. I'm not saying he's going to set the world on fire from the start but I do believe he's going to show that he is a very, very good freshman and will be a huge recruiting tool for Michigan.
This is the third time in a row that someone has committed to the football team while I was in either a staff meeting or some other type of meeting, so clearly the solution to success in Michigan football is that I need to be a little more fastidious about attending meetings.
All the same, welcome to Michigan, Grant Newsome!
Ace needs to be on vacation...seemed to work out well in the past
It was awesome balling out on team blur with my dude @Tkinnel_2 might end up being teammates
They commit in pairs
Let's Go Blur!
Everyone is saying he is from Virginia? I think he actually goes to high school in New Jersey, and that's why it was a Penn State vs. Michigan battle?
Perhaps this explains the confusion (from nj.com profile):
Born in Lawrenceville [N.J.], Newsome moved to Virginia when he was three, only to return to Lawrenceville for prep school.
EDIT: To clarify, it appears he and his family still live in Virginia, but he goes to a New Jersey prep school.
Was nervous this was a penn state troll when I saw the subject - very glad to be wrong. Welcome Grant!
You know you want to
sick (bad) and sick (good) all at the same damn time! #twerk
Great news! On my lunch break. Just made this turkey sandwich all the better. Seems to be a very classy young man. Congrats to him and his family.
I was confused with the lack of a Hello: title. Pleasantly surprised!
Same here. Mods: please update accordingly. We need to follow procedures here!
Great pickup. One step closer to Hoke's goal of working inside out. We gotta get the OL and DL back to our '06 level.
Love the work Malzone is putting in.
Awesome news! Hooray!
Congrats and welcome! Sam Webb expected him to commit anytime before Monday - glad Grant decided not to wait!
Well, happy birthday to me!
After reading the letter the kid wrote plus his offer sheet, yikes man, this is a phenomenal get. Smart, hard-worker, gracious, it's just blindingly obvious in today's world when a kid is the product of good parenting, and in this case... I call obvious good parenting. Five Stars. Should be invited to The Opening for Parents.
Points the the level of coach and school that he has chosen to play for. Big bad Franklin isn't going to run amuck on recruiting.
Nice! Super Duper!
He goes to school in NJ.
I'm cracking up here. Do you think a little good news is going to change the demeanor of much of the horde? I feel like I learned a bit of what this place is really like when the voting went down in the middle of a less-than-stellar season. Freakin' Lord of the Flies.
But seriously, my best hope is that the incessant negativism will move on to something else. Maybe we can point it towards the Lions, where it customarily hangs out?
We have a new coaching staff this year and more weapons for stafford.
Logged in just to upvote you.
Very class act to write what he did. I think that speaks to his humility and good education. I hope he's an absolute terror on the field. Congrats and welcome to Ann Arbor, Mr. Newsome!
I like what the coaches are quietly building here despite having a few problems on the field last year. I opened this post fraught with some dismay as it wasn't a "hello" post but was very happily surprised!
looks like a heck of a player
Hello Grant Newsome
How old are his 2 brothers and can they block?
This should be Hello: Grant Newsome
He was never committed to PSU, was he?
Hey y'all! Been lurking for many many months and now seemed as good as any time to say Hi. So... HI!
Dang - I was also sure Newsome was going to PSU due to the title! GoBLUinTX - I commute to Houston for work every week. IMHO, TX brisket has been everything they claim! Agree about Funk. He seems very well respected. Like many others, I'm very optimistic that the OL will benefit greatly from the simplification of blocking schemes. I never sat and broke down "film", but wish I had a nickel for every missed assignment that I saw watching games live. Let's line up and get some hats on people!
I'm not much for social media and don't anticipate posting too often. And I definitely have no interest in participating n the internet-tough-guy pissing contests. I refuse to use spell check on my posts, so there may be an occasional misp-spelilng in my postes. To all who would take satisfaction in pointing out an obvious error - I'll do my best to suppress the _______ I'd like to toss in your general direction!
PS - Be gentle with me.
Please god tell me you aren't actually how you sound in this post.
But TrppWlbrn had the greatest hello: grant newsome post of the day
Hoke and Matts laying waste to the Jersey Shores...they are taking note in unHappy Valley I venture!
