he only comes here to bang our girls...he goes there to play football
Hello: Lawrence Marshall
The SEC seems to do pretty well getting recruits to do both. The "Hostesses" are doing their job and obviously the MSU football program isn't holding up their end of the bargain...
This is one way Michigan and Sparty can combine forces - offer the "hosting capabilities" of MSU girls and then send them over to Ann Arbor for the serious stuff. See, we CAN work together.
I can see the t-shirts now!
Moe Ways tweeted he's taking credit for this committment. Good job bringing your friend on board Moe.
I guess they came together, Ways gave him a ride so he probably does deserve alot of credit
For the record, I chose to give this troll hair. It was an artistic decision that I stand by 100%
Will this hurt our chances with Hand? or will it speed up the process?
For now I think Marshall is targeted to play WDE. I don't think this will have any effect on Hand joining the class. Welcome aboard Marshall.
When you're the number one player in the country, I don't think you spend much time worrying about other commitments and future DL competition.
Michigan - 8
OSU - 1
Hey Webb, do you really want to miss out on this class...if could look like this:
Michigan - 9
OSU - 0
Meyer is even begging the rest of the Big 10 to match his recruiting prowess. Be careful what you wish for.
Former Ohio commit. Michigan State lean. I'll take it.
Here are your steak knives for second place. Or maybe you are holding out for third? You did just lose a kid to northwestern...
No coffee for you. Coffee is for closers.
Getting peppers will heal any pains caused by the webb defection
Peppers may be a safety.
Sure he's a higher rated prospect, but you never want to lose a top kid from the state and a pipeline school.
I loved getting Donovan Warren, but losing out on RoJo was always tough. But that's recruiting.
We'd all love to have them both.
If we get Peppers, Hand, McDowell and Westphal, then maybe I'll truly forget about Webb.
Peppers can play anywhere in the secondary he and the coaches want him to play.
I said there is a possibility that he and Webb may play different positions.
Sorry to offend you so deeply.
The point is Peppers more than makes up for Webb.
you cannot look at it that way. There are 4 starters in the secondary, Peppers cannot play them all at the same time.
IMO, Webb is probably the top player in the State of MIchigan. I believe he is the most ready to play his position right now. I believe Harris and McDowell have better upside though.
Webb stings a bit. Wish we could flip him but most on here say no chance for whatever reason.
RCMB crashes chrome on my iPad. Just saying.
Welcome aboard! Go Blue!
I saw a lot of "once he gets his USC offer he'll commit, he's just going to choose MSU until he gets that USC offer", any chance he backs out now? That's kind of worrisome in my mind.
Unreal...this class is gonna be crazy when all is said and done
This is excellent news, of course, and only a day after we get a #3 overall ranking for the class to date from ESPN. That makes for nine commits for 2014 already, I believe, and that Michigan is an in-demand place for top talent is a tribute to how the staff identifies talent early and then recruits talent.
Welcome to Michigan, Lawrence Marshall!
QB - Wilton Speight
RB - Jonathan Hillman
WR - Drake Harris
WR - Moe Ways
TE - Ian Bunting
OT - Jamarco Jones
OG - Mason Cole
OG - Juwan Bushell-Beatty
SLB/WDE - Lawrence Marshall
WDE/SDE - Da'Shawn Hand
NG - Bryan Mone
SDE/DT - Malik McDowell
MLB - Michael Ferns
ILB - Kyron Watson
CB - Jabrill Peppers
CB - Parrker Westphal
S - sleeper prospect
JuJu Smith, Alex Bars, Montae Nicholson and Chase Winovich are guys I have us just missing out on. Nonetheless, this would be an impressive group. More than halfway home!
If we get HAND and McDOWELL and PEPPERS (and it seems Peppers is a yes and McDowell strong lean) the rest of the class is somewhat irrelevent. I dont mean the names above but you can put any combination of 4 stars or "Hoke sleeper 3 stars" into the rest of the slots and it is a sick class.
...I can't help but want one of those ridiculous classes.
I want one of those video game like classes, those classes that star-gazers love, one of those f*** you SEC classes.
We're not going to be high on numbers, so let's be high on impact players.That's what this team is missing. Other than Denard (and I guess Lewan and Molk), we haven't had a true playmaker on our team since Brandon Graham.
I want high draft picks. I want reload not rebuild. I want to truly be the leaders and the best.
3rd WR? Maybe Scott?
Hearing Beilen offered him subs today on his visit, and after that it was in the bag.
It was crazy.
and welcome to the fam.
Welcome Lawrence!! Great to have you aboard.
So much salt in this comment.
"I don't know what's in the water in AA, but it's making kids believe whatever it is they're selling. I'd be very interested to see what the average visit is like down there. Between the dump of a city, the hideous girls, and a disgusting, inarticulate slob of a head coach, I'm surprised they can even put together a recruiting class - let alone a top ranked one. Nostalgia for the 1800s should only be able to take a program so far in 2013."
Lol at dump of a city. You stop projecting on me Sparty!
Dump of a city? I'm surprised he didn't comment on our small stadium, our weak endowment or our lack of alumni who founded Google.
Someone just had a healthy serving of hater-ade
E.L. and it's western counterpart would like to have a word with you.
Welcome aboard Lawrence... and LOL at Sparty.
For the much needed laugh.
It does make for a slow July. Hoke.... slow down in bringing in elite talent!!
I really wish I could contribute anything to this thread other than SPARTYLOL
Your avatar is always a solid contribution.
I look forward to Marshall making a Tacoesque size gain over the next couple of years. For some reason I can't help but compare those two kids in my mind, even though Taco has a couple of inches on Lawrence.
Wow. I will never underestimate this coaching staff for any prospect. Now if we get Peppers, Hand, and McDowell to join this class is gonna be fucking EPIC.
