"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
I've come to the surprising and fascinating conclusion that Treezy's a better dancer than Denard.
Shit! I wish I would have been buckled up
Tremendous! Dukes is a big receiver that I think could have a pretty good career. Welcome to Michigan Jaron!
Brady you have spoiled me, I can't go back to just one now.
I'm not trying to be negative at all here, but when does Hoke start a little more selective with the remaining recruits? It seems like he could afford to wait on some really elite athletes at this point.
I know your not trying to be negative but maybe Hoke thinks this kid is a elite talent. Kid seems like a taller Hemingway and he did just fine.
That's fine, but I think Hoke would be incorrect about that.
I am a paying member of Rivals.com and it pisses me off that the premium site hasen't even posted anything about this! I've learned my lesson. Great work breaking news here guys.
1. Check Tremendous/MGoBlog/Wolverine Nation (Wait for a special deal and get it) daily.
2. Interact on MGoBlog instead of rivals and scout (there are some dumb, dumb people over there).
3. Switch your rivals membership to Beveled Guilt.
Rivals blows. They didn't even have something up after our recent recruiting explosion this past weekend. But they had a story about the gators junior day. Stop wasting your money. You can get great info from here and if your like me and need more, Sam Webb and Co. do an awesome job at Scout.
Boom! And another one.
Your geography is off columbus blue. Marion-Franklin High School is part of the Columbus City Schools and is located on the south end of town....not to sound like a jerk.
Not at all, I totally whiffed on that one, I need to get out more, damn middle age!
So where is Tillman at now? Cmon down!
Whenever I need a good laugh, I just head on over to Bucknuts or 11 warriors. Those fans honestly think they are gonna land 20 5-stars.
You hit F5 once and this happens. Welcome young man!
Even though Dukes isn't as highly rated as our other guys so far I think he is one of our biggest commits so far. His speed needs to improve but that can improve over time. Height can't be taught obviously and having a legit 6'4-6'5 receiver is nice. Hopefully we can get Treadwell as well. If not who would be the next likeliest candidate at receiver for us?
Why was he never offered by OSU?
Finally a big receiver. Needs a little bit more speed but I believe Hoke and Co. will be able to work on that.
Who are some other big name recievers that we have offered besides Laquon Treadwell?
James Onwualu can play both sides of the field but from his film he looks like a versatile (and fast) offensive weapon and he has interest in Michigan (visiting in March). He would be an awesome pick-up along with Treadwell. Dukes, Onwualu, and Treadwell at receiver would be a nice haul indeed.
I still remember when I was five years old and we moved from Defiance, OH to Saginaw, and I thought to myself, "man, this one is definitely for the better."
Excited to have Jaron in the maize and blue. I loved reading his interview after his visit, where he talked about running through the tunnel at the Big House, running onto the field, and getting tears in his eyes at the thought of playing for Michigan in the Big House. I love when recruits are not only great players who want to play at Michigan, but it seems even sweeter when the kids actually grow up as die-hard Michigan fans. They share the passion and intensity, and have a better understanding of the importance of our rivalries, and can share that with the kids who maybe didn't grow up as Michigan fans, but are now commited to playing for us, and will need to learn the ways. Welcome Jaron! Wise choice!
Sounds like a true=blue michigan man....he'll be all in with the program. If he works hard and is as good a kid and coachable as reported, he can be another great recruit/player.
Realize people have slanted views, but very noreworthy the type of kid Hoke is trying to get/getting- classy and good kids.
Now who do we get with our few remaining spots....
