TomVH is reporting that Amara Darboh has committed to Michigan!
Excellent news! Welcome to the Michigan family!!!
I can haz wide receiver?
Yes. Yes I can.
So this is why my MGoBlog was being slow. 3 Darboh posts!
But yayyyyyyyy Sugar/Fiesta and Darboh!
503 Service Unavailable is a BEE-OTCH!
Welcome to the good guys! GO BLUE!
Welcome Amara. Hopefully this is the beginning of a great day.
in and make an impact! Let's go and get Diggs now.
Not to be a downer, I'm defiinatly psyched about getting Darboh. Im just wondering if this effects Diggs' decision.
i doubt this in particular affects diggs' decision other than that its one less spot available. i do wonder whether hoke would take 3 wrs if chesson commits soon and diggs wants in later.
Been waiting for another commit! Welcome Darboh.
My first thread I've ever posted and I get beat to the punch! At least it was for a good reason! Go Blue
Wide receiver commits do exist! Hurray!
Brady Hoke poops gold.
Do we reaaaaaally want a guy that "reminds Rivals of" Roddy White...well sure!!!! Now if I may be greedy for a moment, can we pretty please finish this class with Bri'onte Dunn, Stefon Diggs, Josh Garnett, and Yuri Wright??? prease??
Just like Ohio, Iowa, all your, uh, recruit, belongs to us!!!
All your recruit are belong to us...Haha Go Blue!
Great news. Seems like a great kid and a true talent. Welcome to Michigan.
Welcome to the family Amara!!!
I would say it's a good day to be a Wolverine
But it's always a good day to be a Wolverine.
I would say then, that it is a gooder day to be a Wolverine.
But that would be grammatically incorrect, more akin to bucknuts, rather than MGoBlog.
So I'm just going to sit here smugly, enjoying the awesomeness that is this fine sunday evening.
It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine. (repeat five times)
Big play receiver, exactly what we needed!
One more WR spot available, I don't know if it'll affect Diggs, but maybe Payton and Chesson? It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.
Darboh is the real deal, HUGE get! I think he'll get some run next year behind Roundtree.
Alright, welcome Amara! Can't wait to see 'Darboh' on the back of a Michigan jersey, I have a feeling it's going to look amazing.
It's only a matter of time now for the last few spots, this class is closing up nicely.
Bring on Diggs now!!
Hopefully Amara can follow in the footsteps of the last Iowa High School receiver to head to Michigan (Yo, Adrian Arrington, minus the "off-the-field" issues)
Well here's Jeff Bridges doing a dance
Darboh has an awesome story. I can't wait to see him play for us.
Sweet. Big pick up and should put a sense of urgency on the remaining WR targets. Great decision kid and look forward to watching you the next 4-5 years.
A top WR commits and Michigan is on the verge of a BCS bowl berth. Not a bad day for Michigan!
I won all of your Smart Money....im rich bitch !
After having read all this kid has overcome, I can't wait to see him shine on the field.
Ace posted on front page but here-Definitely worth a read.
From the hello post on the front page:
The civil unrest that erupted in the Republic of Sierra Leone in 1991initiated the near eleven year war that swept through the country, threatening the lives of residents. In the capital, Freetown, Amara Darboh was just 2-years-old when his father and mother, Solimon and Kadita, were killed during a surge of violence. His father was a member in the military and after his parents’ deaths, he had few options.
Left in the care of surviving family members, their only choice was to flee. Amara spent the next several years living in Gambia and Senegal as a refugee. Life looked bleak for little Amara who had lost his parents and was unable to return home because of the ongoing civil war. Where was he to go if not back home?
The first seven years of his life were spent surviving life and death situations, education seemed impossible, and the hope for a better future was non-existent.
But when Amara was 7-years-old, an unexpected and seemingly impossible event happened. “It was a refugee program. We randomly got picked to come to Des Moines,” he told the Des Moines Register.
Welcome to the family, wasn't urban soppose to close the border?
Darboh is from Iowa, not Ohio.
I never heard Urban was closing the Iowa border? lol
Welcome to the family Amara! You will love Ann Arbor and the entire Michigan football experience.
This kids story in unbelievable and is truly one of my favorite commits now. This is Michael Oher type stuff and everyone who hasn't read about him should. I can't find the link right now although I'm looking for it from a previous thread a few months back.
Great day to be a Michigan fan!
A Darboh ate my baby!
First recruit we've pulled from Iowa since... Adrian Arrington?
Here's another update on WR recruit we're in on...
Prepare for four (or five) very challenging, yet very rewarding years. It will be great to see you in the winged helmet.
This brings us amazing size to the Wideouts!!! Awesome Commit!!!
We broke the drought, and it's a stud WR!
I heard that from a certain Michigan assistant that Darboh is a lot like Desmond Howard, but better breakaway speed. He also told me Darboh reminds him of Braylon Edwards on jump balls.
He left out the toughness of Jason Avant and moves of Anthony Carter.
