Cass Tech pipeline continues! Per Josh Helmholdt on twitter. And Tremendous. And TomVH.
Hello: Jourdan Lewis and David Dawson
Source? Who is posting this info?
I just saw the source being posted in the previous thread. Sweet day and it is still early afternoon.
on WTKA. Goodness. What a day.
POSBANG FOR ALL!!!
I may need a new screen protector by the end of the night now...
This is me at home
Haha that's great.
Talk about recruiting momentum.
Neil Patrick Harris has commited as a Slot Ninja! And Chuck Norris commits as our entire starting offense line! The hobo is only a candidate for a grayshirt.
For whatever reason I was thinking about this scene as well. Well done sir.
Woot!!! These guys musts known, or something!
Keep those Hello posts coming Ace!
But seriously, an Ace analysis-Aquaman interview combo is amazing. Plus, with recruiting heating up, they should both have their hands full with their sides of it.
Ace and Aqua better start getting to 2014. By the time we get to our Frozen Four and Final Four we'll have filled out 2013 already. Rose Bowl (and others) let's go.
This is insane. What a great Saturday.
Now, the bball team needs to take care of their business
is with a win over ohio and more commits of course, haha.
I'm loving this, can't even keep up with the all posts, not complaining though!!!
such a sweet day.
is about the best Charles Woodson v. Michigan State impression I've seen. Definitely looks like a Michigan man!
Wow...maybe we can have the class filled out by dinner time.
I'm laughing like a maniac over here.
A little Tim and Eric make it even better. Great Job!
I must konw, what is this from?
Cville got it above - Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job
I feel like I learn a lot about a person when I watch tim and Eric with them for the first time. They either say "this show is brilliant" or " what is wrong with you". There is no middle ground.
Confirmed by Allen Trieu.
What a Day! Congrats to all 4
Does anyone have quick links to their profiles? I'm less familiar with these two prospects. What positions do they play?
They'll be there soon, otherwise just search their names.
Both are high profile recruits, Jourdan Lewis is slightly taller Cass Tech CB, top 250, Dawson is an OL who is already huge and has potential to be very highly rated. We've secured most of the top in-state prospects.
Jourdan Lewis 4 star CB # 167 overall, Dawson 4 star OL # 199 overall, Bosch 4 star #60 overall, and Shallman 4 star #160 overall. Not a bad days work for Hoke and company. Who's next?
I think this makes up for our pre signing day blues
i really like David Dawson. Can he play center?
Hoke is settling all family business today, huh?
Wow, this is amazing.
This is TREMENDOUS!
Poor Ace. He has to write up so many Hello posts in so little time.
This day is shaping up to be a good one!
He should make a "Hello: ALL OF THE COMMITS" post at the end of the day linking to all of the Hello posts just so poor Kyle Bosch isn't off the front page by this afternoon.
This is such a good problem to have!
Is this real life?
This is making me forget all about Garnett, Reeves, Grant, and Diamond. Hopefully there are more to come today. Either way, what a fucking day.
I don't remember hearing much about Dawson; in the downtime before a Hello post gets up, what should I know about him in terms of ratings/scouting reports?
Alabama and Florida State offers, among many more. Spent last year in Texas before moving back to Detroit.
If Alabama offered him, he's probably good. They do their homework.
Dawson is unranked at this point, but his recruitment has been blowing up and I would be surprised if he doesn't turn out to be a 4 star. He recently got offers from ND, Alabama, and plenty of others.
You get an offer from ND, and Bama you should pretty much be a lock for a fourth star with all the services. Hell of a day.
He's a Rivals 250, 4-star. That's enough recruiting-site pedigree for me any day!
Huge OT/OG type, top 250 to Rivals, offers from everyone. Get excited about him.
Consider it done.
Holy cow. Four commits today!! Lets keep them coming!
Pretty nice day for you guys. Congrats.
I checked out RCMB for a moment (then ran my anti virus). You guys don't seem too worried...apparently this increases your chances with Ethan Pocic.
I know you're being sarcastic, but I've heard nothing on Pocic lately so I have no clue. tRCMB has zillions of users and just as many opinions. One thing's for sure: the Midwest is loaded with OT/OG talent this year.
That said, nobody anywhere in the country should be "worried" about their team's recruiting since it's only Feb. Unless you're a PSU fan ... Then maybe you'd be worried.
Especially with PSU and Illinois coaching turnover and Wisconsin coaching staff gutted, Sparty is well positioned to grab their share with guys like Riley Norman, Cameron Dillard, Patrick Kugler, Colin McGovern, Colin Goebel, Evan Lisle, Lovell Peterson, and Mike McGlinchey. It will be interesting to follow to see if Dantonio can take advantage of the situation. If he doesn't, then I would be worried if I was a Sparty fan especially given their success the last 2 years. Personally, I don't think they have any shot at Pocic given the number of his elite offers and his already existing connections to Illinois (older bro) and Michigan (David Molk's HS), but there are a lot of other solid prospects in the Midwest to be had.
I can't help the sarcasm and, yes, the Sparty faithful do have a lot of *interesting* opinions. I can see why you work the MGoBlog.
As to Penn State and recruiting...it still is Penn State with a huge alumni base, the white out, the parking lots, and parking lots and jeebus, the parking lots filled with white clad tailgaters. It is a good school and they'll ultimately get their mojo back. The remarkably sad outcomes of the Sandusky era will fade (particularly for people from PA) and PSU will return to some prominence (including recruiting).
Appreciate the good thoughts. Heard you guys got Resche the other day so Michigan schools are swooping in on some recruits.
Hope we can help you guys tonight!!!
that I have but one +1 to give for this gif.
This gif makes an awesome day even awesomer, or should I say Tremendous!
Ah, to be young again...
[something about coming in pairs]
I think this gif should be added to the Muppet's Post!
Between the Muppets and this GIF, it is an easy choice.
Kate Upton ..Michigan Casey Anthony..OSU .... you see what im saying ?
This one time, can we please get a double post?
Really? How do you know? Cause if you're right I think that I just shit a brick.
A lot of rankings aren't out yet, but both project to be 4 stars. Lewis is already a 4 star to most sites, and although Dawson is unranked, his recruitment has been blowing up lately, with offers from ND, Alabama, and plenty of others. And just imagine, we still lead by a wide margin for LTT, Taco, and Treadwell!
Dawson is not unranked he is a 4-star, #199 overall to Rivals. He is our fourth rivals 250 commit in one day. Gotta be a record.
By comparison, MSU only has 3 rivals250 recruits... in the past 2 years. #HALOL
We need a Big 10 Recruiting Rankings post, just so I can see us at the top again. :)
Four Rivals 250 players in one day that is crazy!
they come in pairs of pairs!
Let's not go overboard. I don't think Urban is too concerned.
Dantonio on the other hand...
Wowwwww what a great day for Michigan recruiting!!
Lewis looks like he's got a lil hunny badger in em.
... because he sure isn't doing anything in-state.
Another year of:
I feel like my head is swirling around in a whirlwind of celabratory gifs...
How do you like it? How do you like it? More, more, more...
Ugh, isn't that the Michigan Tech hockey chant? Some douches were behind me at the GLI this year when Michigan was playing Boston doing that chant when Boston would score.
Can Dawsom play center?
Maybe, he is 6'5" and 300 lbs.
Stupid m and n right by each other. I obviously meant Dawson lol
Just start calling him David Dawesome and you can claim to hvae nicknamed the guy.
I like your style.
I like your moves.
/starsky and hutch'd
could be a nickname in waiting.
EDIT: Jeez. It didn't take that long to type this. Now redundant. So now count this as additional vote.
I think i just went pee in my pants. Anyone ever remember a recruiting day like this?
alsdfj;alksdjfasdflkjasdf I'm having a stroke from all of the 4 stars.....asdflkjasd;flk best stroke of my life
You might want to see a doctor...and a shrink...first a doctor for having multiple strokes and a shrink for rating your strokes and calling one "the best".
Now a seizure, that might be something you could call the best!
Can not comprehend
How about a quad!?
So great to see it all play out on twitter. Especially 2012 guys who aren't even on campus are connected with the 2013 recruits.
We might as well beat Ohio in basketball tonight to finish a great day.
Don't forget about the hockey game as well
Commits coming in 4's this year? Awesome to get both of these guys. I knew Lewis would be quick. Thought we'd have to wait on Dawson.
but holy fuck. Hoke must be a sourcerer.
I believe Hoke is the best at finding sources! He once found my 12 sources paper I wrote about the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa! Hoke also I think is magical and might even be a sorcerer!
I am sure that Game Day helps a little. Go Blue!
Is this real life?
Wow, this is awsome, this class will be full by may. Hell of a job by the coaching staff!
Two things: One, we've probably written more on David Dawson than anybody over at Tremendous. He's a total beast. Love his game.
Second: I don't believe Michigan is done. They might be done for today, but I stand by my statement that by this time next week Michigan could easily have nine commitments.
No Denard in this thread yet
Fun fact, since you have been brought on staff, we have gotten 4 commits per day. Thats The Aquaman Difference®
I assume that other commits will be Taco and Jaron...What a great class!
Ahhhhhhhhh...... What is happening?!
Ahhhhhhhhh...... What is happening?!
Edit: Double Post I fail..... Then again I highly doubt anyone will mind in the midst of the insanity
Evil laugh about Michigan taking over the world!
DJ Khaled voice:
We taking over, one recruit at time!
Stop taking Alabama target linemen!!!!!
please dont leave the board after jerrybowl.
We'll talk if and only if we can get LTT. Think of it this way you can take some of the other Midwestern studs and take a dump on Sparty at the same time.
EDIT: Your recruits come in bunches too!
Dude, come on! Just lost my lunch all over my bed. You owe me new sheets and pillow cases. I want 700+ thread count too! I want it to be like sleeping in lotion!
I had root canal today, so I can only smile with half my face, but this makes the day pretty spectacular! Love to see our new commits rooting on the hoops team tonight. Welcome aboard, boys! Go Blue!!
Holy Shit now this is really the greatest day of my life!!!!
Holy crap! Happy Saturday everyone! Also, it's the first day of midwinter break for me and my teaching bretheren in Washtenaw Cty. What an awesome start to it!
Is this is what it feels like to be Texas during the winter/spring?
Though, in very small ways recently, not even Texas knows what it feels like to be Texas.
Holy shit! Best recruiting day of all time! Im so fucking hyped right now. GO BLUE!! BEAT OHIO!! Hopefully theres more to come.
all right, that's it... i thought i'd be getting work done and not drinking in celebration, but i guess michigan had other plans for me today
Looks like we've landed a tackle with D. Dawson and a duel threat with J. Lewis. David knows how to use his hands and his foot work is solid.
Jourdan might see some action on both sides of the line at Michigan!
Dare I say it?
Is this what it feels like to be Texas on junior day?
THIS IS INSANE!!! I woke up to two commits in bosch and shallman..then i took a shower and came back to two more commits. I LOVE YOU BRADY HOKE
We'll get Isaac and Taco. Do it for Michigan, fergodsakes.
Looks like someone is asking for...
Their grads were some of the hardest working, dedicated classmates I had in my engineering class. I think Jourdan and David will add exponentially to this class.
Time to starting drinking... there's a lot to celebrate today!
Go blue! Go 2013! Beat OHIO!!
A win tonight could make this the most epic football-basketball combo day that we've had since December 13, 1997, when the basketball team beat #1 Duke and Charles Woodson grabbed the Heisman.
Why stop there? It's senior night at Yost for hockey day in Michigan.
Wow today has been amazing....Can't even believe we could get 2 more commits even on top of this by next week....WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
Who needs Junior days? We don't need no stinkin Junior days. I wouldn't want to be in Dantonio's office today. He's gonna be a little upset.
It's probably like one of those Downfall/Hitler parody videos in there right now. Throwing pens, screaming, people crying outside, etc..
Just for a visual reference, imagine that those are hipster glasses and he's pointing to a map of southeastern Michigan.
My first posbang! GO BLUE, beat Ohio!
I HAZ A BONER.
I don't have enough points, but I feel like we need a what are you drinking thread. I know it is only 3 pm but four commits already!?! I can only hold off from the celabratory toasts for so long!
Is my drink of choice while waiting for it to be 5:05 on the first Saturday of my break. 10 ounces per recruit seems fair, though I'll happily take a reduced ratio with more kids signing on!
Less than 2 hours til Michigan hockey (knock on wood) makes today even better!
I killed a fifth of Jack last night singlehandedly. And I'm on the west coast.
Avg Rivals rating for our recruits-
2013: Already 3.86!
Not even really sure what to do with myself today anymore.
Speaking of Cass Tech, Any word on Kenton Gibbs from today? Was he offered?
now for some WRs plz
An unbelievable day! Locking down the State! Gotta love Hoke and co. Taking care of business!
I think when Tremendous tweeted 7 commits by the end of next week, he meant by the end of the day! Great day to be a Michigan Wolverine!
God damnit Hoke, you asshole. I'm just starting a 5 day weekend. How the fuck is the rest of my weekend supposed to compare to this? The rest of this weekend is going to suck compared to today.
At Michigan we move signing day to late February.
Last years theme was recruits in pairs, now there just coming all at once. Spread it out for me or this summer will be harsh on this blog. /s BEAT OHIO!
Just wait for next year when the commits come in sets of 8 the entire class will be wrapped in 3 days just like today. Maybe by the time these guys are seniors we will just have one announcement day scheduled for late Febuary to introduce the players who will sign the following year.
Most are saying somewhere in the low 20s.
Depends on if Kozan comes in or not, I think.
Ummmm, HOLY CRAP!!!!! I didn't expect 4 (!!!!!!) Hello post when i logged on from work today. My excitement will be maintained until i get out of work and promptly sit on the other side of the bar to watch UM stay undefeated at Crisler.
The Twitterverse is saying Michigan might not be done today, get those seatbelts back on
I've got a feeling that tonight's going to be a good night.
Can't stop hiccuping from all the happiness
Beat Ohio Go Blue.
According to Tremendous on Twitter, Michigan might not be done today.... I feel foolish for unbuckling after the other 4 verbals....
HELLLL YEAH RIDDLERS!!!! HELL YEAH!!!! MOAR 4 star donkey pounding HOGGAGE UP FRONT!!!! And more sticky fingered jitterbugs in the BACK!!!
Solid day AMG.
CAN WE PLEASE GET THE ABOVE GIF OF KATE AS THE BANNER. Hoke spring eternal but jeeeeeeeessssssh she gets better looking everday!
Today, my MGoFriends, we are being truly blessed. The tide on the rivalry is indeed changing!
New commits, welcome!
Denard talking to the GameDay crew and they too said, "This is Michigan Fergodsakes!". Let's all get wasted!
On twitter TomVH pointed out that this time last year we had ZERO commits and it took all the way untill May for us to land our seventh recruit. I'm sure the fact that Hoke had only been on the job for a month at this time last year had something to do with it, but damn we sure are off to a fast pace this year. I would also bet that six out of last years first seven commits weren't 4 star recruits. So we're off to an even faster and better start than last year.
Which of Lewis,Bosch,Shallman,or Dawson are you hating on?
No hating going on over here.
EDIT: Oh, I didn't see the Hello: post for Bosch. Stupid phone.
This is an outrageously crazy good day. With the possibility of two mas recruits, hopefully it leads to the hardwood with a victory over ohio. Go Blue!
Hardwood? That reminds me, where's the Kate gif?
In the words of my friends young son. "that ish is cray cray" What a day to be a Wolverine. Im completely shocked by four, some kids i thought our chances were really great, but to get four elite athletes with Bama offers (yes you RDT) im really jacked. Program is headed in the right direction.
Im sure alot of this sounds redundant, but damn it feels so good to be this kind of redundant!!
This is insane. Four 4star commits in one day.
I am feeling something very warm in my heart right now and a feeling equally as warm in my pants. I probably need to go take a shower now but I am afraid I will miss another multiple something!
Ha ha! This is a awesome day...Go Blue!
