Welcome to Michigan ! Now if I can just figure out how to pronounce his name...
#Michigan commit #18 Csont'e (pronounced Son-Tay) York was deserving of the WR MVP at Saturday's NFTC in Columbus
I wonder if that's "Sun" or "Sahn". I'm still slightly confused.
I've heard Sahn-tay before but it had more pronounciatin on the initial syllable. See-ahn-tay kinda but quick at the beginning lol...
All your MVP are belong to us
I love how the coaches are so far ahead of the recruiting services on kids like Pipkins, Kugler, and now York. Unranked to Rivals, 3 stars to Scout, but better than any of the WRs at NFTC. :]
This class alone, you can add Conely to the list, as well as Deveon Smith, who was unranked and had no other offers when they offered him. These coaches clearly have the knack for finding talent.
of your statement (which I hope is true) until these guys actually play games at Michigan.
Not to entirely rain on your parade, but wasn't Kugler rated pretty highly from the get-go? Also, Pipkens went from 3 star to 5 star which is a pretty big jump. Doubt Csont'e goes that far. Also, did Jalin Marshall play mainly QB or WR at the NFTC? Because that would be cool if he outplayed him, but if not still cools since he won MVP.
Hello: Csont'e York
but it was a flagrant foul: late hit AND out of bounds!
Looks like he can take the place of Junior as the jump ball receiver. Welcome to the family Csont'e!!
No kidding. Dude goes up and gets the ball like nobodies business, and he's tall. :]
Hopefully the domino's fall and we land WR #3 as well.
This kid apparently excelled at the NFTC against way above average competition, I'll take it.
This really never gets old.
One the reasons why Denard will be one of my favorites to every play for Michigan.
Congrats, welcome to Michigan Csont'e!
switch the title to hello csonte york
His recruitment was about to blow up after his performance in Columbus. The coaches got in early and it looks like it is going to pay off.
...really know what they're doing.
That is what sparty gets for slow playing him.
Their recruiting coordinators were out recruiting nationally, this kid lives to close to home.
Their coaches were visiting a top-rated RB prospect on Alpha Centauri, and couldn't get back in time since they, unlike Ohio, don't have two coaching staffs.
I thought it was International recruiting?
He wasn't on my radar at all, but I kept hearing his name when I was looking at updates of already committed players.
Is the pronunciation, according to Webb. I'm psyched. I think his rankings were about to soar up the charts after the camp this past weekend.
Call him whatever you want, just don't call him late with a scholarship offer.
I was THIS CLOSE TO CALLING HIM TODAY
It's not his fault that intergalactic recruiting takes up a ton of time. The round trip to Alpha Perseii 4 isn't short, you know.
Dantonio forgot to bring a phone while he was laying in the weeds
Or, he just got a new phone and doesn't know how to use it.
When you're at a brilliant school like MSU and as you know they invented warp speed and Dantonio can do warp 9 and get back to Earth in a jiffy, who needs a new cell phone.
I think this now pushes Laquon Treadwell into "best available" territory and much like EJ Levenberry he has a spot for him no matter what. They still need a slot guy like Devon Allen or Stringfellow, so I would have no problem going to 4 WR now.
I don't think we really need a prototypical slot guy necessarily. Norfleet, Hayes and Lewis are all capable of playing in that position. Dileo and Gallon will both be around for the next two seasons as well.
but I think we definitely could use a guy with top-end speed. None of our current players or commits, save maybe Norfleet or Hayes, have the speed to burn people deep. Not that I'm unhappy about the commit, but I think speed is our biggest priority at wideout now.
Not disagreeing with your overall point, but you can remove the maybe from before Norfleet's name. That kid can fly. Same with Drake Johnson.
We really could use some top end speed from our receiving corps, especially with a Quarterback like Morris coming in. If we could get a burner on the field whould can consistently outrun DBs then we could get a lot of deep touchdowns.
Berkely Edwards has speed......
but felt like I'd be stirring up a fight lol. A spot may yet open up for him.
I would like to see us get a WR with a combination of both excellent top end-speed and decent size. It doesn't necessarily have to be a Calvin Johnson-esque player, but someone who is about 6'0 who runs a 4.4 would be great. Nothing against Edwards, he will likely be a good player, however, we already have two gusy on the roster for the next few years who have very similar skillsets as him (shorter, but with great speed).
from me on that one. In a perfect world, Borges could line up Treadwell, Chesson, Darboh, Dukes and York in a 5 receiver look and laugh maniacally while Morris puts on a clinic. I'm just saying we don't know how this is going to shake out. I don't think the door shuts on Edwards until February.
I think he fits that mold perfectly, and outside of Treadwell (who is pretty damn fast), is probably the offeree that fits this mold the best out of the current offers.
Oh my gosh, STOP with the Berkely Edwards talk!
This could be an instance of Hoke getting in on a kid at just the right time before he blows up. I have heard from some MSU people that they have been recruiting him for awhile and expected him to commit upon being offerred. Of course, Dantonio will now not extend an offer and play as if no interest was ever given to the kid.
From his film he looks like he has great ball skills and hands, two of the most important traits for a WR IMO. He does not seem to be particularly dangerous after the catch. I am also a bit worried about where his route running ability is at since his highlight film consists pretty much entirely of fade/go routes, however the same can be said of many high school WRs. This would be an easy fix.
Overall I find Csonte to be an interesting recruit. Hopefully he turns into a steal!
In an interview that was done with him just after his offer, he said that he grew up an MSU fan but that he was blown away after his visit to Michigan. Sparty has a number of WR offers out and my guess is that there were waiting to see how those went before offering York. Good for us, bad for them.
This feels like the coaches went to a camp with a loaded roster of nationally recognized CB talent and watched this player excel above and beyond.
AFAIK, college coaches are not allowed to be at these camps.
True, but the results travel quickly.
I'm not sure if it is forcing LT's hand, but it does apply some pressure.
From what we have seen so far, the coaches are very honest with the recruits in terms of where they stand and how many spots left at each position.
I think it could mean 4 WR but I'm just speculating.
Welcome to Michigan,Csont'e...HAIL!
had a feeling this would happen. Another in state kid sparty!GO BLUE!!!
Welcome...Big Ten DB's are gonna hate you
HELLO? any one ever hear of it?
the OP title is like
This is MGoBlog ferGodsakes!
You can thank Shane Morris for this one. Mostly.
We'll all be missing Sweet-Sugar Shane someday.... meaning, the day he signs his LOI.
Because from that moment forward he can't contact prospective recruits. Dude is one open bottle of Michigan mojo.
Thankfully we still have nearly a year left, so he can help with 2014's recruiting too.
Plus then we actually get to see him on the field!
Any chance we can just delay having Shane sign his LOI until later in the spring so he can continue to recruit for us/him? Just a thought...
Who will be our Shane Morris of Team #135 ??
And thanks for fixing the thread title!
says that York grew up a Spartan fan
Makes me think he likes Michigan as well.
a trip to the end zone is just "doing his job". That kind of persona will fit well in Hoke's world.
but Kenton Gibbs, DT out of Cass Tech, appears to have committed to Illinois. Could have potentially been a Michigan offeree down the road.
He may very well still be. Hoke dosen't have a problem offering a kid who has committed
Another big receiver. Hopefully he's got some speed!
help landing Csont'e I see both him and Jaron doing Braylon like snags on Big Ten DBs in the future plus can we get adancing Kate Upton.
I love the smell of Hello posts in the... well, anytime, really.
You can smeell the internet?!
Should have Uncle Leo instead of Kramer.
GREAT hands on this kid. Not that this would affect his ability to snag anything within 5 feet of him, but what's his competition like? I've never even heard of Chandler Park...
On the thread about York's offer I'm the owner of a comment stating that he seemed like another DUkes and that I didn't agree with this offer, my comment even was worthy of mention from tremendous on his site as one of thethings that makes him shake his head. I regret that comment. Considering what this coaching staff has done they clearly know what they're doing and his performance in camp and this tape show that. One thing I'm noticing though is how important these camps are for players who go to smaller/poorly scouted high schools. In the end, it ends up being all that parents pay for their kid's education.
A 6'3'' wide receiver that seems like a magnet for the ball? I'll take it.
Welcome to the Michigan family!
Welcome aboard, Csont'e!
where everyones infatuated with any 6'2+ receiver with a high SPARQ rating or nice 40 times, it's nice to know that - based on some very convincing highlights - we have a guy whose best asset appears his ability to catch the football away from his body. Just my epinion, but I think that's the single greatest asset you can coach into a young WR, and he's already ahead of the curve against kids years older than him in that regard.
Excellent route runner? Polished receiver?
Always nice to see local recruitment, im planning on going out and seeing as many 2013 recruits in action this fall as i can.
loves th e short fade in the corner of the endzone. Um, yes please!
Welcome to the family Mr. York. I was wondering when UM was going to get it's next commit, we had quite the dryspell there, almost an entire month. Good pick up though, if the kid can go up for jump balls and make acrobatic catches with relative ease, imagine how good he can be when Sugar Shane is dropping bombs right in the numbers. I do have to say this staffs ability to scout and recruit under the radar kids is unbelieveable.
they are hiding in the grass, waiting to pounce on him.
This kid has great hands. Good hand-eye coordination. Those over the shoulder catches aren't easy, but he makes them look like they are. Great pickup for Michigan.
Welcome aboard young man.
I get his name phonetically please?
