Poggi commits to Michigan per Sam Webb on WTKA.
Remember when we were arguing with Rutgers bloggers about which athletic director was worse?
ALABAMA! GET SOME!
always take Bama recruits.. but when i do...
I make sure the World knows I mean business.
Yes. Boot the people who say we don't win head to heads. Feel better now
I was just about to say...I don't want to hear any hat pick complaints. When you're getting kids picking between you and Bama, it's gotta be a good thing.
Sorry about the typo. It's hard to type when you are on the treadmill.
Yeah, just so I'm clear on this...
If Poggi had chosen Michigan over Alabama and another school (i.e. had three in his final group), it wouldn't have meant anything. Since it was only Bama, though (i.e. two in his final group), it's a huge deal.
I'm so glad he had a 'committable offer' because this kid is a beast!
good news indeed
Gotta love it.
"It was definitely very close (between Michigan and Alabama), but I’m 100% for Michigan."
Welcome aboard Henry!
Edit: Link Here to Sam's article this morning.
Then he remembered Alabama academics, or lack thereof, don't hold a finger to UM's.
This is a huge get. A high-profile national recruit in a head-to-head recruiting battle against Alabama. Huge. Maybe now we'll start to get a bunch more nationally-ranked players in this cl....oh, wait...
Welcome to Michigan Mr Poggi!!
That's all you have to say....speechless!!
Kid gets me excited just listening to him. Seems like a high character guy.
I like that he has a Stanford offer, and that Hurst had Duke and Vandy offers. That suggests that neither of them is likely to be an academic risk.
Just like it's posted every single time. Someone thinks a duke offer means a smart kid and they are then reminded that our good friend Terelle Pryor also had a Duke offer.
Still, I have no doubts that Poggi will be just fine at Michigan.
I'm listening to Henry's interview with Sam on WTKA right now. You can stream it over the net if you're not in the A2 area, fwiw. Just go to wtka.com then click on listen live.
What about the 10:00 commitment? So who is that?
rolls on. Great choice and welcome aboard Mr. Poggi.
Welcome to Michigan, Henry!
This is a great get and even better, we just beat out Nick Saban for a nationally prized recruit. Monday is a good day today.
This is fantastic news. Poggi is blue and I'm jackin' it in San Diego.
So glad we got two DTs in this class...
The only downside is; what the hell are we going to talk about before the start of practice? The 2013 class is just about done before high schools let out.
When you beat Nick Saban one-on-one for a top recruit, that is saying something. Our defensive line just got a whole lot nastier.
I scouted Poggi back in March if anyone missed it and/or is interested in taking a look.
"...Alabama, Auburn, Boston College, California, Florida, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina State, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, South Florida, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC, Vanderbilt, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin" (from the Touch The Banner link).
Thanks Magnus. Great day to be blue.
All i've got to say is if the freaking Aztec's screw this class up by having the world end I am NOT going to be happy with them in the least.
The Mayans however...
They have found a new calendar that goes on much further. It hasn't got as much news coverage, because it is a good thing. Yeah we get to live!
Mgrowold, I don't think this is the first picture you've used that's a girl wearing Michigan gear. If they/you are up for it, you should drop me an e-mail for the Attractive Michigan Girl of the Week feature.
Let there be Kate Upton!
Huge. This is looking to be the best class in Michigan history! Now OSU can stop finding consolation in the fact that their DL recruiting is so much better than ours...
WHY YOU NO COMMIT?!?
Lol take that saban
Congrats, Henry! Welcome to the family!
I'd still do her.
(It's still a her, right?)
W-Why would you do this?!!!
Hilarious, but so wrong.
SO GLAD you chose to come to Michigan!! Can't wait to see you playing in the Big House on Saturdays!!
