Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Hello: Lawrence Marshall
Is this true? Sparty schadenfreude?
I honestly cannot stop laughing at this. Sparty's all over that page.
I like that the prediction is "100%".
Folks, I think we have broken the space-time continuum.
because "He's comin' in your windows, he's snatchin' your people up!!!" awesome....
its funny reading rcmb as they realize that the climax of msu football is over
This brings a smile to my face. This kid is really, really good. I was ultra bummed when he committed to OSU (just like i was for Webb). Then he was said to be an MSU lean for a while.
Extremely happy if Michigan lands 4 of the big 5.
Think of it, Webb and Marshall were at OSU, Harris was at MSU, and things were starting to dwindle with the stud 5* DT once national powers were aggressively pursuing. It was looking like there was a chance Mich would get shut out for all the blue chippers in Mich at one point. Nice job by the staff.
Holy shit. Did not expect that. Is Coach Brown actually really good?
TomVH confirmed it.
THAT IS ALL.
Didn't see that coming, but this is awesome news, and ferns is on campus so he's at the source.
The nice thing about Sparty is, they don't just toss your salad--they can grow all the ingredients for it too.
I see what you did there
We had subs?
Ace be prepared.
So McDowell and Hand, come on down?
Hoke makes this recruiting game look so easy.
"Hey Lawrence, I heard you were leaning towards MSU. Don't do that."
Per Sparty Shaudenfraude... "Biggest fail yet by the staff. These guys couldn't close a f***ing screen door."
I also like "He only comes here to bang our girls...he goes there to play football" by tVargMan Prime.
I don't usually look at RCMB but it's irresistable today.
I don't know if that really qualifies as schadenfreude. That's why everyone goes to MSU.
You're right. Perhaps this contribution then, from Respert for Three:
"Find this girl and kick her ass out of school. How hard is it to be a whore for christ sakes!?!? Send her ass to Eastern with myself and the rest of the riff raff.....I wana smash. Good times!
That is pitiful.
Here's one of my favorites:
it is not our staff doing something wrong. UM is just doing something really right. It only seems odd if you have not been paying attention to the pattern these last few years.
Player A has very little interest in UM
Player A takes a visit to UM
Player A commits a half hour after arriving
nothin to see here
Here's another delusional comment:
how is it every time some recruit says he wants to visit a bunch of schools commits to scUM as soon as they step on their campus? something isn't right here. the ncaa needs to investigate them.
And a response to this by another state fan:
Yeah man, they're clearly cheating. Beating us for recruits? That's never happened before.
Are we really "beating" staee for recruits? I don't think so, since that would mean state was actually some competition for a recruit.
"That's never happened before."
Clearly rcmb has members that are only 4 or 5 years old with no knowledge of pre-2008 recruiting.
Even if this poster is being sarcastic, it's still hillarious.
Welcome aboard Mr. Marshall!
As bad as today was for sparty, there is always tomorrow for it to get worse.
Was not expecting this today!
For the record, that means 5 of our 8 commits have OSU offers. 3 OSU commits have M offers.
Yeah but those offers weren't committable. Even though Marshall already committed to them once.
Awesome for the team! Now lets see what happens with McDowell and Hand
Marshall at SAM? McDowell at DT, Hand at DE? I'll take it.
And don't forget about Mone at DT as well!
And this doesn't even take into account who we already have in the fold, with the likes of Poggi, Pip and Taco. If all these guys can live up to their hype, Mattison will have a rotation of absolute monsters on the line in the next year or two.
Now all we need to do is win in EL and Spartys little "run" is officially over on and off the field.
All of this is fantastic but I need to see some results in EL this year!
Will be catching a Southfield High game this year.
May I suggest their opener... they play Cass Tech
Their opener will be fun but it will also be a landslide. Southfield is a good team with solid talent. They will be a playoff team but they are not near on the same level as Cass. It will be lopsided, but if you want to see talented players both sides will have a few.
ESPN continues to demonstrate their evaluation prowess this year. That's 8 of 9 in the 150 for the Wolverines. And it sounds like when the next re-rank comes out Ways will get a good spot. I wouldn't expect a 150 spot but maybe a 4 star.
edit: Oh yeah, and every one of them is at least 6' 3".
lol @ scouts headline:
Southfield defensive end Lawrence Marshall came to Ann Arbor this morning - and the Scout300 #89 prospect has just committed to Michigan!
Come to MGo and read Ace's Q & A for a few minutes. Click on Twitter and we have a commitment from Mr. Marshall. Welcome to Michigan recruiting where commits can come in in less than 21 seconds..
