Huge get obviously
2015 Five-star WR George Campbell has committed to #Michigan.— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) July 27, 2013
Yeah, but Brady Hoke can't recruit elite talent!! Oh, he's the #1 WR in the 2015 class. Carry on then.
but its so irrelevant now that I dont even know what to make of it
Wow! Welcome George!
I feel the tide turning Blue.. <<See what I did there?
I did not expect that. Great news!
Huge start for the 2015 class... Absolutely awesome
Me right no
Good for you.
some things should be private
LOL HELL YES!!!!!
If writers (such as Steve Lorenz) are comparing him to Cavin Johnson, what will Fred Jackson think? /faints
Calvin or Carvin?
I think he has that potential. You'd be hard pressed to find a better size/speed combo at his age.
Well giggity then
Fred Jackson would say "He's like Calvin Johnson but with better speed, height, hands, and body control".
I shreiked and farted at the same time! Guess you can say I "sharted"
I believe "sharted" is something else entirely.
That would be shrarted
Break the net!
GAAAAAHHH LOUD NOISES!!!!
AHHHHHHHHH GENE!!!! I mean GEORGE!!!!!!!
Guys... I'm supposed to be studying for boards. This can't happen now.
Over. The. Line.
Jesus Camp. A documentary from a few years ago where these filmmakers followed these kids around at an evangelical youth camp in North Dakota.
I had no idea where it was from lol, I just saw it on an internet forum and thought it was amazing.
That is crazy.
Just to be clear, the velociraptor mask was photoshopped in.
LOL that was not clear to me. I was so confused...
HOKE CAN'T RECRUIT THE SKILL POSITIONS!!!
HOKE CAN'T GET THE BIG RECRUIT!!!
HOKE IS A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Guyz does anyone know if Hoke gets personally involved in recruiting? Cuz if he doesn't, he definately should
No way. He'd just fuck everything up. /s
I think if these recruiting websites went as far back as 1995, that would be a debatable statement.
It's becoming much less debatable every day.
INDEPENDENT GEORGE!!! WELCOME
Independent George and Relationship George both approve
I was bummed when Fournette couldn't make it to the BBQ. The stars were aligning and I thought if we had any shot, it had to be this 4 day trip. I was actually ready to call us "in the mix" after reading/hearing his visit reaction. Even if he comes up now, I don't think we'll be able to regenerate the energy and atmosphere from this weekend.
But this? THIS!? This makes up for it. HUGE GET!
Potential #1 jersey and #2 jersey on the same team for 2-3 years? I'll take it.
Wow wow wow wow wow! Now I'm going to scream and run around like a little girl. Don't judge me...
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!??!?!??!?!?!?! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!
SUMMER OF GEORGE HAS BEGUN
And we're gonna need it.
is very, very long way away. . .
Way to be a buzz kill. Be happy and celebrate negative Nancy
After my initial excitement, my second reaction was that it is a long time until he signs and he lives in FL. But Hoke does a great job of keeping his recruits and a good season by The offense would certainly help.
This just makes my day
The consensus #1 WR in the fuking class. oh my god. Michigan football is just embarassing other programs. We're setting up for a decade of ass kicking
I love this number!
That's like a 4.1 in Urban units!!
Is that a measurement of butt firmness?
NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME NEWS!!!!
refreshing ESPN JR300 until it gets updated
edit: drooling thinking about Morris to Harris and Campbell. Two WRs that could demand double coverage??
edit #2: this picture is awesome.
I've been watching it for several minutes now trying to catch where the loop happens but you see the guy in the black shirt reappear as soon as he starts to cross the screen. Really well done.
OH FUCK YES!!!!!!!!!!
The offer list was long and glorious, but we come out victorious. He is 6'5" and 198 lbs. already, according to Rivals, which makes him already tied for the tallest WR listed on the current roster. I like where this may go - we could get spoiled on people ranked #1 at their position group and I have no problem with this.
Welcome to Michigan, George Campbell!
He was clocked running a 4.37 (thinks he can run faster) at the Opening this year. Will make him one of the fastest AND biggest receivers on the team. Awesome get by Hoke and staff, Drake and The Mayor will be a formidable combo. It's crazy the amount of talent that this staff is bringing in.
You forgot the part where that 4.37 was on GRASS.
THINGS ARE HAPPENING!
I just a screamed out unabashedly in front of my daughter's 11 year old friends at her birthday party. Pretty sure I just ruined her reputation.
I just squealed like a little girl in the middle of my workplace and I'm not the least bit upset about it.
Harris on one side and Campbell on the other is a nightmare for opposing DBs. Oh, and we're stocking up on TE's, so double cover the outside guys at your peril.
How far are we from recruiting at an Alabama level right now? Are we there?
We at least have to be close... Three 5 stars in the Hoke era with one or two more likely in the 2014 class... HOKE IS FREAKIN AWESOME
We got 2 5* in 2012 (Pipkins to Rivals and Kalis to Scout)
We got 4 5* in 2013 (D. Thomas, Morris, Kugler, and D. Green to Scout)
I'm guessing you mean consensus five stars: D. Green, Peppers, and now Campbell.
Kalis was also a 5 star to Rivals besides Pipkins
We're not keeping George for 4 years...
Was wondering why my app was not opening up - was hoping it was a commitment, but did not expect this. Huge get.
HOLY S---!!! Shane is goona have some serious weapons in a couple years. The kid is amazing, but he is so young, and so far away, and national signing day is 18 months+. wild. I don't know what to think. I almost wish for his sake he didnt commit to us this early. He could have had a lot of fun over the next year and a half. That being said, I'm shocked. I'm happy.
We will see you wearing #1 jersey someday!
Touchtown Michigan! Wilton Speight 88 yard touchdown pass to George Cambell as clock expires! Michigan is 2018 College Football Playoff Championship Champion!
Wait. Why would those two be in the game when we are already up 42-0?
Boom Goes the Dynamite
George Campbell? Nope, doesn't ring a bell.
- Mark Dantonio
Well done sir
...you'll know exactly who he is in 2 years. Your DBs will be reading the back of his jersey for years to come.
George Campbell said if any other schools try to recruit him, "I'm committed to Michigan and that's final."
FROM TVH TWITTER!
Word is he was a lifelong MSU fan until they visited his school and didn't know his name. SPARTY NOOOOOOO!!!!
Is it just me or is this commit more exhilarating because we didn't see this coming?
YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know how hoke pulled this off, but Ann Arbor has a new mayor and this class is about to be insane.
with the stealth slots Da'Mario and Freddy Canteen the passing game is going to be crazy like a sub party.
And don't sleep on Darboh and Chesson...granted there will be a few years seperation, but I feel like they'll turn heads as well.
holy mother of god!!! let's go!!!
Yes! Best news! Go blue!
I just screamed and my daughter looked at me like I was a freak.
I am a freak.I need to get some perspective in my life. When did I become this freak ... I guess when I became a Wolverine.
Welcome George! Let the freaking good times roll!
Not at all who I think anyone expected, needless to say WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Crazy excited, but also nervous. As highly ranked as he is, SEC teams will be crawling all over him for the next 18 months, as well as probably Clemson. I would feel more secure if Campbell could also flip Artavis Scott, with the help of Cole. I'm not used to getting such highly ranked recruits from SEC country, so sorry if my nervousness is a buzzkill. Every other part of me wants to scream HELL YEAH!
over Clemson all they want. I couldn't care less!
Yeeeaa Buddy !!!! Glad he chose the good guys !!!
I am sorry I ever doubted you.
That is all.
He is going to be a souperstar
Not if he gets Chunky.
this is a momentum builder.
along with the other guys like harris, canteen, ways, bunting...and maybe peppers.....wow
we're going to have a very good football squad soon
"I'm commited to Michigan and that's final" (twitter)
Dude is 6' 5". Devin and Morris have Taco Pants IRL.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
Of all things that were done under the previous staff....this event was definitely one of their better decisions!
Glad that Coach Hoke kept it!
I got a little confused when I went to ESPN REcruitingNation and saw the headline "#1 2015 WR commits to UF after camp", only to find out that ESPN has someone else (Da'Vante Phillips) as the top WR in that class. Big day for top WR's for 2015!
For some reason ESPN has Campbell listed as an "athlete" rather than a WR. He is higher rated than UF's guy: Campbell is #3 in the ESPN Top 300 for 2015 while Phillips is "only" #11.
I left a picnic that was rained out and it turned into the worst hailstorm I've been in. I park and then I see this. We're building something special...... Go Blue!!!!
Wow crappy day at work is no longer crappy!
It's a celebration bitches!
I believe he ran the fastest 40 at The Opening with a 4.36. As a SOPHOMORE!
a 6' 3.5" 185 lb sophomore
By the time he gets to Ann Arbor he could be 6'5"-6'6" and should be 200+ lbs. Wow, look out B1G corners.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!
decommits happen all the time to every school.....what are the chances this sways scott from clemson?
The look on Coach Hoke's face is classic. You can tell this is a man that loves his job as a coach and mentor to young men.
That is amazing. I was exactly in that spot yesterday at Pizza House where that pic is taken. I went upstairs because I wanted to take a pic by the background they use for the coaches shows.
You can see the border in the top right of the Hoke-Campbell pic.
Is that Kevin Koger wearing the light blue shirt?
I believe he's a graduate assistant. Ala Roy Manning a few years back
Thank you for taking us here.
The only thing better than this is reading the Wilton Speight "Buckle Up" post. In hindsight, it is just classic.
It's going to be a long 5 weeks but news like this makes time go faster. Go Blue.
... Campbell. May his onfield reign be glorious and his Michigan experience a-maize-ing. Welcome .
Welcome to A2 George. Make a name for yourself here! Stake your claim and show the world what your made of!
Don't forget to get a degree along the way!
Make a name for yourself here? He's already the Mayor of Ann Arbor....
Speculation and not an actual commitment, especially not from Campbell. Great start to the weekend.
Drinking at a grad party!!! Awesome news!!!
as they said on the BTN today ... we are seperating from the pack.
Assuming he can wrestle it away from Drake Harris.
GC = AC I'm drinking all the fucking Kool Aid.
The Summer of George!!
what it would it be like with him and Jabrill Peppers going at each other in practice is going to like.
Real recognize real
Sr QB-Shane Morris Sr. RB-Derrick Green Jr. WR-Drake Harris Soph WR-George Campbell and this years great haul of O-Lineman will be Srs.....not to mention Peppers-Marshall and hopefully Hand-Malik etc will be Jrs....that could be an all time great Mich team.
Was on a plane to FL and didn't get the news til now...vacation starts now. Expensive plane booze now.
How great is it for a top 10 overall graded player to commit a whole year before they were scheduled to. Most (not all) highly ranked players choose to "test the market" and at least wait until an All-Star game to actually commit. This kid not only committed, but put out there that he is done! Speaks that he is not a ME player....IMO. Now if only there was a highly rated 2015 RB that had UM at the top of their list.....cough, cough Damien Harris!!!!
Take off your clothes. Hoes, get naked.
What do you know about Cosmic Raindance?
all your 5 Stars!! This class will be #1 with a considerably smaller class size. Very Impressive feat for Hoke and Co. Go Blue!
This is insane! Just heard the news.
Off all the folks at the BBQ, I really didn't expect Campbell to commit.
He is talked about being not only the best WR in his year, but potentially of the past several years. And DRAKE HARRIS will be on the other side.
Larry Fitzgerald, meet Calvin Johnson.
Well this was a pleasant surprise. Drake Harris on one side and George Campbell on the other YES PLEASE!!!
Campbell and Harris at WR, with Butt and Bunting lined up in a two tight end set with Derrick Green in the backfield. Pick your poison
Yesssssssss!!!! Welcome to the big house!
I have been a fan since 1957, I love the history and the players that have come to Michigan, but GAWD damn what Hoke is doing is unbelieveable...I love the players as players, but he's recruiting character guys...what a combo...I'm fired up, I just hope the good lord let's me stay around long enough to enjoy all of this...
Just, wow. Made my day!!!
Woooooo!! Just make it really count on signing day and going forward baby
I talk to my family for like an hour instead of looking at MGOBLOG and we get Campbell. I don't know if I should talk to my family more, or never leave MgoBLog again.
Welcome George. Way to Go Blue!
I just pooped a little thinking about having Drake Harris and George Campbell on the field together with Sugar Shane Morris on the trigger, Derrick Green in the backfield, Canteen in the slot and Ian Bunting leaking late down the seam. Not to mention the O-Line we've got coming in. This is going to be a VERY dangerous offense!
FYI: I just read your post as:
Jashon Cornell (2015 DE, Minnesota) has been tweeting a lot about Michigan:
He's the number one player in the nation according to ESPN, and the number 7 overall on 247's composite rankings.

— Jashon Cornell#⃣1⃣6⃣ (@Jay_Rock16) July 27, 2013
Yes, please. I'll take the #1 player in the nation.
All your #1 players in the nation.
Steve Lorenz also posted on 247 board that Cornell sent him a very positive note about Michigan. Ill just leave it at that since its paywalled.
It's pretty vague but you can tell Jashon is going to give Michigan a good hard look
This WR group is going to be sick in a couple of years.
What conference do you think will end up dethroning the SEC first?
Based on the recruiting progress of Michigan and Ohio, as well as the coaching pedigree and the offensive/defensive styles of play, I honestly believe it will be the B1G. Anyone care to argue for/against this?
Go Blue! What a huge commitment today!
becoming the big 2 little 9 kind of like the old days - There are a lot of teams that will need to step it up - I see Nebraska, Sparty, and Wisconsin being good but not elite and I am still not sure how Penn State will do in the long run.
Can you imagine this team in 2/3 years? I just invision Brady on the sideline, hair all askew, sitting on a lazyboy, cackling with glee as Al ingeniouisly schemes another touchdown and Greg diabolically plots another sack.
The amount of talent is stupid. Really not fair. There should be rules against this.
I gotta see Al a bit more first before I will be envisioning that
Let the man have his kind of players. Al is a pro.
Urbz must have cooled on him
Nah he's just not a competitor. Can't handle the championship environment they're brewing down in Columbus.
Noncommittable offer. Duh.
Yes. This could be me as I love pugs. Ours is sleeping soundly right now in his comfy bed, while I'm typing at 4:19 AM after getting up to pee.
So excited I can't sleep. Welcome aboard Mr. Campbell!!
I know he is a longshot to leave Cali, but maybe the Campbell commitment could help us pull an upset.
Elite receivers in back to back years!
I signed on just to say WOW! Hoke is tearing it up on the recruiting trail. Welcome to Michigan Mr. Campbell. Imagine the possibilities a few years from now.
First thanks for all the gifs on this thread people of the Mgo Board - had me rolling. Second, not one mention of our man Mason Cole - not saying he created all this but I am sure he helped grease the way. Always nice to come "up north" with a teammate.
The kids reminds me of Calvin Johnson. Good rout runner. Big strong kid.
Hello #1 jersey!
Now that I've changed my pants, I can return to my post. I am thrilled for this. The only sad thing is that we have to wait!!
Lattimore and Smith are coming to the BBQ now. A lot of pleasant surprises this weekend, eh?
Hoke can't recruit skill position players though.
Huge pickup. this offense (and team) will be very exciting to watch for the foreseeable future. GO BLUE!
will let us have jersey numbers 1 and 1A.
So according to conventional wisdom, will Campbell's commitment improve our chances (admittedly low) with Fournette who couldn't make it to the BBQ due to his grandmother's health?
THIS IS SO AWESOME CELEBRATE WOOOOOO!!!
With the OL, RB, And overall D class that has been and wiil continue to be put together, Mr. Campbell has all the potential to be the best WR at Michingan in a long time, if not all time.
