I seen it on da Twitterz
ED: Juwann Bushell-Beatty apparently has committed per Sam Webb.
ED: Title changed to match standard procedure
Buckled up baby!!!!
Now he's saying it's Juwann Bushell-Beatty.
Sam Webb was heavily hinting that JBB was very close to a decision this morning on WTKA. Can only put us even more in the driver's seat for Peppers.
And Peppers is moving up his Stanford trip..... Alriiigghhtt
How is that good news again?
If he decides before a Staford visit, it's got to be M. If he moves up his Stanford visit, then they become part of the decision process, no?
Webb said this morning that Stanford was the school for Peppers at one time.
is that we are his #1 far and away now and he's ready to make a decision but he doesn't want to do so without seeing Stanford. ergo: if he moves up the Stanford visit its to get this over with.
But I wouldn't necessarily read the situation that way. I think in general moving up the decision means good things for Michigan, but previous indications were that he might decide before even going out to Palo Alto.
By all accounts it's a great place, and if they were #1 at one point, it's just as likely that he loves his Stanford visit as much as Michigan. I'm going to increment back to 50-50.
Really am in favor of another human being (and a kid at that making a life changing decision) but I REALLY don't want Peppers going out to Stanford. haha. I just can't see him going there and quickly deciding after.
Meant to say I'm all for kids doing whatever they feel they need to do to make a big life choice and maybe even enjoying the process......just Stanford gives me bad vibes with Peppers.
Florida, FSU, Miami (YTM), WVU, Tenn...and Staee, for what its worth. Great get!
Here's Juwann Bushell-Beatty's Hudl.com page - (HERE)
That site lists him at 6'6" and 315 lbs., so we're not just grading roads - these are freeways we intend to build through defensive lines in the future. I like that approach.
Welcome to Michigan!
Recruited Offensive Linemen:
2012: 6'5'' (x4)
2013: 6'4'' (x2), 6'5'' (x3), 6'7''
2014: 6'5'', 6'7''
Recruited Ball Catchers (WR/TE):
2012: 6'2'' (x2), 6'3'', 6'4'', 6'5''
2013: 6'2'' (x2). 6'3'', 6'4'', 6'6''
2014: 6'3'', 6'4'', 6'6''
Recruited Defensive Linemen:
2012: 6'2'' (x2), 6'3'', 6'5'' (x3)
2013: 6'2'', 6'3'', 6'6''
Wonder if a Dave Molk would ever be offered under Hoke in the future. Moke was ~6'2", 280# as a senior in HS.
But he was still one of the best centers in the country that year, so I bet he still would have been.
ESPN loves him, #10 OT and in ESPN150. 247 has him as a solid 4*. Both list him at 6'7"
Scout and Rivals have him as a generic 3*, listing him at 6'5".
The two inches in height make a difference, given we need tackles instead of guards.
This may end up the best Michigan recruting class ever.
That's because they just keep getting better! ;)
We're in line to have an amazing class, but I think the chances of a GOAT for Michigan is limited by the classes small size.
Good thing you were here, Magnus
Lol lmao good one
Don't forget Jabril Peppy-Peppers
just so I can have his name wrap around to the front
We've got a ways to go in order to be able to take that title from the team that started Kevonte Martin-Manley and Darrell Johnson-Koulianos.
an XXXL Team 135 shirt in stock and ready for shipping.
You down with JBB?
Yeah you know me!
Yeah, you know me!
Can I have some Peppers with that please?
I might be able to give you a Hand.
Congrats JBB, IMO you made the best decision of your life to date
Yessir. Really nice land.
Is Ace still on vacation? Anyone know?
See you in the Big House, JBB!
Not that it matters much, but I wonder how much of an impact the B10 expansion has on these NJ kids. They'll be on TV every week and play at least 2 games @ Rutgers while they're wearing a Michigan jersey. Does M pull JBB and have such high interest from Peppers without the B10 expansion? Maybe, probably. But did it push us over the edge? Maybe.
As stupid as Rutgers and Maryland are, their states have a lot of good football players and now we can tell them (and kids from VA too) that we'll be playing three schools (RU, MD, PSU) from their region which means we'll always have one away game within driving distance from home. A lot different than if we were playing in the west division and we're playing out on the plains several times a year
You're missing the real issue. The real question about Big Ten expansion is: will Rutgers come into Michigan and steal the second-tier kids from MSU?!
The instant that Maryland and Rutgers were announced as the newest members of the B1G, this is the first thought I had as well. I've got to believe it's at least one factor these MD and NJ kids consider when choosing a school.
We hear all the time about kids wanting to stay close to home (Southern kids rarely leave the South, for example). Last year, we got a lot of Midwestern kids, which is great, but ESPN actually has more "East" kids in the top 150 than the Midwest, and since our campus is only about 10 hours away at the most from any Eastern city, suddenly having three more schools we play being out that way starts to make us look a lot closer.
@TomVH: I just happened to be on the phone with Bushell-Beatty's coach when he committed. Talking about something else.
@rivalsmike: OL Juwan Bushell-Beatty to #Michigan is step one, Jabrill Peppers sooner than later is step two. Paramus double dip.
ALL GOOD NEWS!
Hopefully Peppers is moved by this and drops for UM in the very near future.
As mentioned earlier in the thread, he is moving up his Stanford visit and will decide after that. Unless, he is totally blown away by Stanford, I think we are in good shape.
That's going to be a long commute from NJ to Ann Arbor.
How many players do you think that we will recruit at the OL position ? We now have JBB and Cole.
Three with Noles or Bars ? Or maybe four with both of them ?
think he will be the last OL
