the tussle between Hoke and Meyer. Now is the time for Meyer to offer. Does anyone know his shuttle and 40??
Hello: Mike McCray!!
I dunno, Ole' Urbie's been out of football for a long time. Probably can't run so good anymore, even with that Elite SEC Speed (c)
Goes the dynamite!!
What he order?
A 3 FROM TREY
Me: This (recruiting) class so cold!
Hoke: This old thang?
Real talk. Isn't he worried about playing time after Hoke told him "Look, you need to crawl before you ballllllllll"?
Let's hope that Hoke left out any talk about a "bathroom stttalllllll"
As expected, but great news!
Gedeon will be a beast
WOOOOO WELCOME MIKE THAT SHIT CRAY.
/Last and only time I hope to use it.
And still no Kate Upton?
Come on MGOBLOG, This is Michigan FERGODSAKES!!!
They told me there were still hero's out there.... I guess they were wrong...
NOW IT'S A PARTY!
Nice! Now where is Gedeon for that pair? Also according to McCray's interview with 247, Hoke told him that they are only taking two linebackers when McCray committed, which is very surprising. You can check it out here. Great to be apart of this board and its great to be a Michigan fan! Here is the link.
An Ohio State legacy kid who watched Courtney Love, Alex Anzalone, and Jaylon Smith all get offers before he did and was clearly shown by Urban Meyer that he wasn't wanted, yet is ranked in the top 100 by every recruiting site?
Are you sure that was Kate Upton? I watched it 10 times and still don't recall ever seeing a face.
I hope we take the other 3 now as well. Welcome Mike McCray, huge pick-up!
This is downright comical now! Meyer is making a huge mistake passing on these young Buckeye studs. We're signing kid after kid who grew up a Buckeye fan who was dissed by Urban. Stud players from Ohio who have a chip on their shoulder about the Suckeyes? Yes please, we want MOAR!
and while I realize that your join date predates mine:
You used "studs" and "suckeyes" in the same post. Why not bust out with "Urban Liar" and a couple of "flat-out" and "freaks" good measure?
This is baseless and only on a quick look, but his mug and size remind me of LAMAR WOODLEY...ie Hoke's version of Carr's Woodley.
Over at eleven warriors they seem to think that Anzalone and Courtney Love are OSU locks and prefer them over McCray. Anzalone looks like he'll be an animal, but does anyone know anything about Love? He isn't ranked by any of the recruiting sites yet... Anyway huge get for us with McCray!
Anzalone is not rated by Scout and not in Rivals top 250. He will probably move up in the rankings, but I don't see him being a huge win over someone like McCray.
Let the LB avalanche commence!
Can very much see McCray in the SAM/rush DE position that Jake Ryan currently resides in. Expect a 6'4" 240# junior to grow into a 6'5" 260 tweener.
I got to the bottom of page 1 and got scared seeing no Katherine Upton. Luckily page 2 did the trick.
Awesome get. A Ohio legacy.
I think our good friend Kyle Kalis said it first: the Michigan-Ohio border is now open.
I'm amazed Meyer did not offer this kid.
the hits just keep on coming!! I hope Gedeon and Levenberry are soon to follow! It will be interesting to see where he is ranked by scout soon, pretty wide disparity between rivals and other services
Time to drink that scotch in my desk
If I hit the scotch in my desk every time Hoke pulled in a four star, I'd be seeing even more stars!
All 2013 commits over 6' except for Jourdan Lewis who is 1" shy.
This 2013 class is getting ridiculous. Now I know how Ohio felt for all those years of getting their in-state talent. What the hell is Ohio thinking letting all this talent go unoffered?
If Meyer thinks he can recruit nationally like Notre Dame, I hope he enjoys becoming Notre Dame.
Is too busy shitting in coolers to recruit
Tressel drinks wine coolers, Meyer dumps in them?
Buckeye gonna buckeye. I've had to stop reading their boards because I can't believe people are really that stupid and blinded by fan loyalty to lose all objectivity with regards to recruits.
Now look - I'm not saying anything bad about McCray at all. But OSU didn't offer him. Maybe it's because they don't like him as much as we do, maybe they think he'll be a DE and they don't need more DEs, maybe they like the guys they're in on better than him. Either way, if they wanted him they would have offered him. I don't think Buckeye fans are spinning anything.
It's similar to us with Reschke. He's a top-250 instate LB. We didn't offer and he went to State. We can legitimately say we didn't want him, because we didn't.
Did I ever say I was using them as the bar or that he wasn't really that good because OSU didn't offer him? No, I said nothing of the sort.
What I said, and maybe I wasn't clear about this, is that we can't hate on OSU fans for saying "well we didn't want him anyway" after his commit because they're actually correct. Sometimes OSU fans will fawn over a kid, then change their tune when he commits elsewhere. In this case, he was never an OSU target because they never even offered.
Let me be clear that I don't care whether or not OSU offered. We offered, and so did other good programs. I've watched his tape, I can make a judgment for myself, and I like the pick up. But it makes us look bad when we link to a Buckeye board after we picked up a kid that didn't have a Buckeye offer.
And chill out with the caps lock f-bombs. You look like a child.
Of hypocrisy on this board, no doubt. Big pickup regardless, long time until next NSD.
You are the devil.
I'm curious to see what he does when TOSU realizes he's another Joe Bolden, and offers him later. Will he switch to the dark side? His dad played for them and was a captain, and they were his childhood favorite.
The 2013 class is becoming...
UM now has 12 4 star recruits per rivals. For 2012 Auburn had 13 4 star recruits and no 5 stars, and ended up #10 in the final rankings. Assuming no attrition, to think that even if we filled with 3 stars the rest of the way, we'd still end up top ten just based upon the staff's recruiting work before mid March.... amazing.
Twelve 4* recruits for 2013 already. Only four schools got that many in all of the 2012 class, by my count.
It's raining 4 stars in Ann Arbor baby!!!!!!
