...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
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)
