spoiler alert: i linked this
Hello: Maurice Hurst
If he had a committable offer from ohio, then he would be a GREAT pickup
Don't be a debbie downer, thank you!
My sarcasm didnt translate, I've seen this kid play, absolute beast
No, it translated just fine...
Urban stopped recruiting him when he was still just Maurice Hurst. Apparently, Urnan got wind that he wanted the Jr. on his jersey and that was it.
Urban is JUST getting word he commited to Michigan. That offer will be there soon enough...
3-star on Rivals/ESPN, 4-star on 247/Scout
Love that this kid also played spot RB for his HS as well. Really athletic for a DT. Also love that he visited Sparty yesterday and committed on the spot when he made it to Ann Arbor today. Already trolling Mark Dantonio and Sparty.
Not sure which thread to post in.......
Welcome to the family!
It's been awhile... Love how all three topics used different sources.
To be fair Ace and Tremendous both cited @ToddWorly247
Hello Goal line fullback! Decent ball skills for a kid pushing 290.
Kinda wish he had a bigger frame if he's going to play the 1 tech or 3 tech. Looks like he's maxing out at 310.
I like his attitude, good shoulder control on shade blocks, needs some technique cleanup out of the blocks and we'll have to see how he deals with blockers that are significantly bigger than him.
But all in all, a great pickup for a position of need. These recruiting coaches.... they killing it. And it's barely JUNE.
You lost me at "hello", however, you found me again at "a great pickup."
A high 3- star on ESPN and RIvals, and a low 4-star on Scout and 247. But his offer list looks like one of a solid 4-star. I will take him anyday!
All I know is his highlight tape clearly shows a solid 4* recruit. The kid can play and he's supposedly pushing 300 lb already.
Spartan fans can at least rest on the fact that this Michigan commitment made it to EL before he committed to Michigan.
Super exited to get him. He will make Michigan proud!!!!
is our favorite Michigan fan Kate.
I would still burn it out of principle. Just don't post a pic online haha
However, it is not necessary to post it on Twitter.
I don't expect any malting over at the Red Cedar Message Board today. Especially not with hot topics like "Hoobastank - Are they any good?" taking up their time.
What is this? 2002? Sparty is catching up music that is 10 years old.
That's why you go to their recruiting forum. Plenty of delicious tears there.
The one I check out locks the thread as soon as any commit to Michigan.
Man, and I just had my chops busted for posting about Red Hot Chili Peppers on this site.... could be much worse.
I wasn't buckled up when I logged in. Now my neck and back are bothering me. I have learned my lesson. Welcome aboard Maurice.
I didn't have a problem with your topic, but I misread the title and thought someone had killed the RHCP. That was a bit rattling.
Yeah, sorry about that. I was referring to the guy that questioned my taste in music for posting it.
They also currently have a thread going with the title "Hot or not: Breast feeding military moms" ....wtf?
Michigan State isn't exactly... what you'd call an institution of higher learning. Back when I went to school, it was still called Michigan State University of Agriculture and Science. I'm pretty sure I remember friends telling me there were still classes offered in which you stuck your hand up a cow's toosh to manually impregnate it or something during the final "exams". Mind you, this was back when I was reading the classics and studying Aristotle and Plato; gave me quite the chuckle and still does.
Definitely Kate Upton worthy!
Love his athleticism and can't wait to see him in a winged helmet!
Awesome, I love DT's. I wonder how this will effect Poggi? Would love to have 'em both.
Your concern is how the effect of Hurst's commitment will affect Poggi? Finding your screen name a tad ironic...
"I thought he looked good, but his height and adding better weight was a question.
What Worly is reporting with Ohio State is not true, Hurst had a non committal offer, he tried to commit at the spring game and we said no. Hurst even reported recently OSU cooled and both teams went there ways. OSU even asked him to camp.
I will tell you this, if Penn State would have offered, he was a Lion. Hurst grew friends with Greg Webb and Sickels, and as an east coast kid wanted to be a Lion, they passed as well.
I think Munger is in, I would take Munger over Hurst as a DT in a second. Munger is bigger, more explosive and has more upside. Compare Munger's offer list with Georgia, Auburn, Penn State, Notre Dame and others to Hurst, no comparison.
OSU is no waiting for DT Mike Hill from South Carolina, he is the big prize to close 2013 DT recruiting, and maybe one more WSDE added, if it is an elite kid, because OSU has an embarrassment of riches there.
I liked Hurst, I love Munger and Hill more, OSU did the right thing passing. Penn State did as well after grabbing Gregg Webb."
It is well documented that Meyer was recruiting Gedeon hard and when he commited, some buckeye poster came over and offered some congratulations (seemed patronizing but whatever) so any of them with a brain conceded that as a Michigan win. It is perhaps even better documented that McCray did not have an Ohio offer until very recently after he picked Michigan.
There's really no point in even listening to Bucknuts. No matter what happens, posters will always justify what happens as exactly what Ohio wanted. Hurst did try to commit to Ohio as far as I know, but who the hell cares. Our coaches were clearly happy to have him. And honestly, the dude also plays RB and busts 60 yard runs; that's just insane raw athleticism for a DT. Don't pass on that.
I don't ever listen to bucknuts, I just go there for entertainment when we get a commit from a guy with an osu offer.
Hoke and Mattison over Urban and fickle for d-line for sure
Oh my, my, my. How embarrassing.
Though it's not as bad as having a child porn sex offender visit with recruits. So they are making progress down there.
Either way, we're probably in a position to be less picky with DT's right now given our depth than OSU. Hurst seems great and like a solid pickup but isn't going to be an immediate impact in the way that Pipkins hopefully will be. He looks like a powerful, athletic DT that will help us build more depth on the line and could be an impact player if he bulks up and works hard. Just watching his highlights, he looks really fast which seems like a great attribute to build on.
calm down. There were legit reports about Hurst not having a commitable offer. Just because OSU was full at his position doesn't mean they're all lying now. Not saying that it is legit everytime they say this, because they do say it for a lot of guys. But this makes us sound petty, just like when MSU mocked us for saying the same things about Shane Jones, Se'Von Pittman, etc..(which were true)
After watching his highlights I'm excited for our 2013 jumbo backfield. Shallman rb Hurst fb!
How is the official Hello post not up yet??? Great pickup but I honestly don't know much about him other than what I read few weeks ago when news broke that he could be our next commit.
Anyone else a little peeved that there is no Hello post? Tim always had them up within 3 minutes (it seemed) -- I could see the delay if the commitment came out of the blue, but c'mon, Hurst was a given to commit this weekend.
Patience grasshopper. The question I have is who is next because we all know commits come in pairs.
I've long been annoyed at *these* types of MGoBoard postings. Wouldn't it be easier to just wait for Ace's post? Then, all the comments could be in one spot.
I don't mind so much if someone else posts something. It's going to be hard to prevent, and obviously it's a lot quicker to write a sentence or two and throw in a link (or not, as the case may be) than to come up with paragraphs of quotes and analysis. But I would like to see the "Hello:" title reserved for Ace's posts. That way there is a clear distinction between the two. It will also help when searching the archives to make it easier to find Ace's posts.
Just when Ace thought it was safe to have a weekend.
Love it. Welcome Mr. Hurst, welcome.
Dont have enough points to start thread but OSU TE Jake Stoneburner was arrested today for "obstructing official business" http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2012/06/02/ohio-state-jake-stoneburner-arrested.html
Let's see if he can top sliding over the hood of a car but this doesn't sound serious. Sounds like kids being kids in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It was probably the same type of incident, just with less damage. Looks like a second degree misdemeanor at most
finally!! a d-tackle!!
Great news. This kid will be a force in a couple years. Great athleticism for his size. QBs beware!
On another note, I do not have enough points to make a topic
Can somebody make a topic for me
Jake Stoneburner arrested
Literally 4 posts above has the same link, just saying....redundant.
yeah I didn't see that...... touche
What the hell is "obstructing official business?" I'm hoping that means "business" in the Flight of the Conchords sense of the word.
Depending if there was violence involved, this could be a felony
Perhaps he was giving someone the business "down there"
You know when I'm down to just my socks what time it is...
Why is my post redundant?
I have seen nobody else post that Stoneburner got arrested.
Somebody make a topic please as I do not have the points needed.
the 4th comment above yours
I say que up the some dirty water.
God bless her heart
Heart??? Ok, I guess that's on the list.
I live in SEC country. Gotta say bless her heart.
With 19 commits theoretically how many spots do we have left for uncommitted players?
The best guess is 4-5.
Can he be moved up in the rankings. He looks like a very solid player to be a 3 star on rivals and espn.
And to think... I thought Kyle Bosch enrolling early was going to be the big news of the day.
Welcome aboard Hurst!
Welcome to the Michigan family, Maurice!!!
There aren't enough pictures of Kate Upton in this thread.
You people disappoint me.
Roughly unrelated, but did Laquon Treadwell and his Core 6 cronies visit campus last weekend? I believe it was asked several times but never really answered.
Also, there's a rumour that Jaylon Smith is going to commit to Notre Dame today.
I really, really, really like this pickup. I think Hurst and Willie Henry are 2 underrated kids who will do very well here (although Hurst really is not underrated). He will end up 4* on every service except one, since Farrell has already written him off as no chance for a 4th.....
Per Mike Farrell, Hurst will NEVER be a 4* because......
Ryan -- no Hurst is too sawed off to be a four star kid, lacks great size. "
If the kid really is 6'2 and 290 lb before his junior year, then that's just a stupid comment by Farrell.
There are five 6'2" 4-stars on Rivals and four 6'1" 4-stars.
Exactly. I posted just how idiotic Farrell's statement was in another thread (Poggi Thread i believe).
and then is too egotistic to change them
...just became all sorts of awesome with a "Hello" post.
6'2", 290 lbs, pretty athletic defensive tackle? I'll take it. Welcome to Michigan, Maurice!
Oh, and to Magnus' point about the relative lack of Kate Upton photos...
Sorry about that, Magnus.
I forgive you.
LSA class guy!
I heard they call him the gangster of love..
Yea but does anyone know if he is enrolling early?
...if only Kyle Bosch would enroll early. Amirite?
I thought they also called him a "space cowboy"?
Welcome aboard, Maurice. I hope he becomes part of a weekend pair of commits.
Welcome to the fam!
The big knock on him seems to be teqnique. With this coaching staff, no DT will ever have poor teqnique for very long. This guy will excel at Michigan.
F'in A cotton!
Welcome to the family Maurice. Gotta love this kids speed off the line when he's playing defense, it's almost unreal.
Do we have to down right beg for Miss Kate Upon..For the love of Sam Hill
Great pickup! Welcome to the class Maurice!
Just noticed that Rivals has their team rankings up.
Michigan is the consensus #1 by the two major recruiting sites, Rivals and Scout.
Keep it going!!
I'm really glad that he committed. We really need some depth at DT.
Can't wait to see our DLine development over the next few years. Especially if we somehow pick up Poggi, it will be loaded with studs.
