F#$% up Donnie (Bosco)......
here. Welcome aboard Newbie.
We all want the Hand, but the Hand is tough to get. You've got to get the Hand right from The Opening. For once in my life, I'd like Hand. I have no Hand. None.
Also, I echo the sentiments of exmtroj expressed below. Thanks Jinxi.
Here is his film to preview before the announcment:
could fill in at QB or RB as well.... hell of an athlete.
lol, RB for sure, QB though? Srs?
plus he'll keep the ball dry in the rain, maintain the lights on the scoreboard, parking enforcement before the game, and do everyone's homework. /FJ'd
out of a lot of receivers in the Big Ten for the next few years (not to mention some QB's). With that size and speed at CB, our turnover ratio should get more positive if nothing else.
if he took that "surprise!" visit this past week? The rumor is that it was to Rutgers, but hadn't heard/read anything about it all week.
247 doesn't have one on his timeline, so I'm guessing no.
He never made it to any of the schools he said he was going to try to visit according to 247, not even Rutgers. Also on 247, the crystal ball predictions are 100% Michigan and Michigan is listed as the favorite with all others as cool interest, which I haven't seen before (not to say they haven't done it, I just haven't seen it).
Be careful, they were 100 percent sure with Bars too.
Watch the Indy 500, drink lots of Dr. Pepper, season everything I eat with pepper, maybe have stuffed peppers for lunch, grill some fish seasoned with lemon-pepper for dinner, and maybe, if I need a snack later, some nachos topped with hot peppers.
And, of course, have one eye on anything Pepper-related here on MGoBlog all day, while waiting to watch his 5:15 announcement.
What's a bit scary is that I half think you might actually do just that.
To be fair, it all sounds kinda good.
Agreed except for the Dr Pepper. That stufff is like drinking sugar water flavored with sugar with a sugar chaser.
The rest I could definitely eat. Especially the nachos. Mmmmmmm nachos.
Well it sounds delicious - especially the Dr. Pepper. 23 flavors?! Are you kidding me?
Your pee is going to smell funny.
He didn't say anything about asparagus!
already a flaming asshole, you WILL be!
It's more likely he delays his decision than choosing somebody other than Michigan.
He really didn't visit anybody else.
That is a good start to a day, I plan on grilling steaks on the grill this evening.
Will Peppers wear #2 jersey?
Peppers will wear whatever Jersey he wants to, and since he has said multiple times that he doesn't want to be the next Charles Woodson, he wants to be the first Jabrill Peppers, he should continue to wear number 5 and make that number a legend.
Man.. So is it just me, or does anyone else really hope we land Peppers?
I thought I never wanted a single recruit to commit more than I did Derrick Green. Then I found out about Peppers and watched his highlight tape and WOW.
You'll say that every year going forward.
According to the Twitterz..2014 QB recruit Brandon Dawkins is trying to commit to Notre Shame after the Golson aftermath.
After the wings game last night a hello post would be quite comforting.
This in six hours will be either this:
I look forward to seeing how this all shakes out.
The balloon .gif is just creepy.
I don't even know what those guys are trying to do in that 2nd gif, but that made my day.
The way Mich-fans are fawning over this guy is over the top. We've had several guys come in like this and not perform, so let's keep things in perspective. Having said that, I hope he is everything the scouts predict. Go Blue
Good point, Peppers probably won't come in and win the Heisman as a freshman like he wants. But the kid is so athletic, I think he'll be a solid contributor no matter where he winds up on the field.
I think it's worth having a little caution mixed in with your excitement when it comes to this type of thing. But if you can't get fired up over Peppers, you probably aren't the type to worry much about recruiting at all (which is fine, by the way... Just saying that as this stuff goes, this is just about as big as it gets.)
I like Peppers' upside as much as any recruit I can remember in quite a while. That's no guarantee of anything, but it will put a big smile on my face come 5PM.
and only your 77th one! If I couldn't see your count, I might have easily thought it was your 81st!
/s ...actually I agree with everything you said.
Not with that attitude
Henson, Woodson, and maybe Wheatley (I only say maybe because I don't know anything about recruiting rankings, but if it was today Wheatley would have been up there, he was a freak). All 3 of those worked out pretty well while they played for Michigan. Now I'm not going to put a Heisman in this kids hands right away, but worst case scenario for this kid (as long as nothing freakish happens off the field/injury) is a above average starter that you can do multiple things with. He's got about 4 positions he could be a great player at, he's bound to do something positive with his athleticism.
Antonio Bass was a freak. Unfortunately he had the career ending injury, but the talent he showed in multiple positions as a freshman suggested he was going to be something special. A very highly touted recruit at the time, but I can't remember his overall ranking.
What could have been.
There have been more than that. The 1998 class alone also contained David Terrell (#1 WR recruit in the country), Marquise Walker (#2 WR recruit) and Justin Fargas (#1 RB). That class was incredible on the offensive side of the ball.
Ty Law was a huge get out of Pennsylvania - I don't know what his specific ranking was, but he was a guy that everyone wanted. Marlin Jackson was pretty high up there, too.
Anthony Thomas was also really highly ranked - if not top 10, then probably top 20. Chad Henne was up there as well. It absolutely killed PSU fans to lose him. And of course there was Ryan Mallett.
But there haven't been ones of this caliber. Henne, Terrell, Fargas, Walker etc. were all great players, like top 10-15. But the number of top 3 players in the nation isn't that high. Peppers is the elite of the elite recruits, those that you mentioned were elite.
I think you are splitting hairs here. Comparing players across positions is pretty arbitrary - how can you realistically compare a LB, OL, QB, DB, etc? Especially when they're not even HS seniors yet. I doubt there is any real rhyme or reason as to why one guy is considered the #5 overall player versus some other guy being #7, or #8 or whatever. Once you get up to a certain threshold it's probably a crapshoot. As far as I'm concerned, if a guy is considered #1 in the country at his position, he's super-elite.
(Incidentally, Drew Henson wasn't a top 3 overall player either - he was around #10. Ronald Curry, who went to UNC, was ranked ahead of him at the QB position.)
I loved Prescott Burgess!
