* Had - past tense!
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
* Had - past tense!
It's been a while since a good football "Hello" thread, and now two just today - good things really do come in bunches sometimes.
Welcome to Michigan, Delano!
Does this mean L3 is out of the picture? Great get though
I'm sure it doesn't. With him and Hill both guys who could play S or CB and with all of our CBs who could move to WR (not like we need any of those, amirite?) I'm sure the coaches still take the 5 star guy if he wants in.
They're still 5 spots available, I don't see them turning him down.
I don't think so. With the lack of depth at WR, I think this means that some of our DB recruits may end up at WR.
I think this is more in response to Conley than LM3. I still think we have a good shot with him.
We all knew this was going to be a big weekend. Now Ace is praying for the end of his finger-bleeding nightmare.
Why? I am pretty sure we have Hello:Dawson lying around here somewhere...
Yeah but MSU has John Reschke so clearly they have the superior class.
But there's a lot of good in state talent that cannot be neglected. So happy to get some great Cass Tech kids. Go Blue!
It's been so long since the last commitment. Forgot the whole commitments in pairs thang.
can we just rename their school the UofM CT Campus?
UofM Dearborn and UofM Flint would become jealous.
Looks like a really good pickup. Big fast and athletic.
But wasn't Hill an Iowa verbal previously?
I can't imagine how jacked the whole group is right now. DD and DH with 20 other recruits hanging together - wow.
Come on 2014 recruits ...
we got him away from Soup Campbell! Maybe this would inspire Soup to come back too!
omg I forgot how much receiving a commit makes me happy. This is not healthy
Based on Rivals formula (http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com/content.asp?SID=880&CID=1364602 ) for team rankings, the commits of Dawson (142 pts. on Rivals formula) and Hill (105 pts.) will bring our current point total to 2757, giving us 26 more points than current first place USC at 2731 points!
Although this lead may be temporary with many other teams having commits on their way, I'd say it's a nice spot to be in with guys like Green (216 pts.), McQuay (211 pts.), and many others still looking hard at Michigan.
You forgot to factor in that rivals only count your top 20 recruits. You need to subtract Dawson and Hill's totals from that of a 5.6 and 5.7 This puts us slightly ahead of Bama for the number 4 spot.
Good call, I got ahead of myself a little bit there I guess
Delano heard Iowa wanted to move him to running back so he jumped ship!
Well played, Volverine.
I don't believe Michigan is/was ever a very serious player for McQuay. I think that until somewhat recently it was a Vanderbilt/USC battle. However, I would not at all be suprised now if he ended up at FSU.
1.) It is in-state and there are many people around LM3 that would like to see him stay closer to home.
2.) While it hasn't been very widely reported, he was extremely impressed with his official visit to FSU.
3.) While FSU losing DC/DB Coach Mark Stoops to the Head Coaching job at Kentucky set FSU back in their recruitment of McQuay, the persistent rumor is that FSU will be hiring Alabama DB Coach Jeremy Pruitt. Saban considers Pruitt a future star in the industry and he's one of the top 5 assistant coach recruiters in the United States.
4.) There has not been a lot of contact between McQuay and the Michigan coaching staff recently.
Someone refute this and reassure me that we know nothing about McQuays leanings.
Mcquay took an official and unofficial to Michigan. Recruits that are not interested usually don't spend their own money to take a trip to a school.
His father, who is dealing with his recruitment, has said that Vandy, USC and Michigan are in his top 3.
Didn't Hoke and another coach have an in home visit recently?
Yes they did. I think it was in the last week or so
OK, I didn't mean to say that McQuay isn't interested in Michigan. He is. I would put Michigan as the 4th most likely school for him to land at right now.
I guess you know everything because you are a scout.
Butttt your pretty not correct
Scout has delano as a 4 star
I gotchu brah
I take ESPN ratings with a grain of salt, so he's a solid 4* in my book.
Indiana is on upset alert. 5:00 remaining and they are losing to Butler by 4 points. If they do lose and Michigan handles business today can you say #2 in the country?
Your GIF and the two commits. Thank you!!
Let just say a good day has been salvaged
