4* OL from PA commits. Per his Twitter. Props to @SamWebb77 for being all over this one.

I'll grab the pole outta the crawlspace.
A new commit? Cue Kate Upton staring contest.
I was excited with the 2012 class, but these 2013 kids are perfect compliments to those guy... How fun will it be to see these kids compete for starts?
I know he didn't visit MSU, but pretty funny nonetheless
Fuck!... ..... ....huh?
Greatest OL class ever? Well, ratings wise anyway.
can Denard play another 2 years? our OLs will just carry him into the Endzone.
... before anyone picks up CATS on the offensive line like this again.
I sit down and open up the blog, thinking it would be an uneventful day... and I see a hello post. So much for Sparty junior day. Welcome aboard Patrick.
Sparty thinks they really had a shot with Kugler.
Maybe dantonio shouldn't have cut off coach heck at that recruiting camp... He could have learned a thing or two
Even though somebody says this in just about every recruiting thread, the schadenfreude never gets old.
unfair. I almost, almost feel sorry for Sparty. They are rationalizing that many of our 4 star recruits will not pan out. Some may not, bit I sure like the percentages and I'm sure Sparty would be doing cartwheels if they had half of our 2013 recruits.
Really? I'm surprised they would say that. The only thing I have heard/seen from them is a lot of "damn, would've been nice to have him/them".
I have seen a lot of them arguing the depth charts, which I guess is valid, but haven't seen them flat out saying the kids won't be good.
Didn't you admit to being a Spartan awhile ago? Your brilliant disguise is not very convincing.
but it's on the RCMB if you care to look for it.
I'll feel sorry for Sparty when we trounce them on the field. Not now.
I'll NEVER feel sorry for them. Fuck them.
From that day foward, I could care less about what happens to those bums.
It's a good thing I saw the Sam Webb thread just below or I would've been completely unbuckled. That would've been bad for me.
always carry protection good sir!
A rivals 100 OT sweep? Probably unheard of, but...wow.
13 OL in Rivals top 100. Michigan has 3, and all 3 are in the top 60... There are 28 linemen in the Rivals top 200. Michigan has 5.
No other school has more than 1 of the top 28 linemen committed right now; only six of the top 28 linemen have committed to another school (ND, Texas, Florida St, Texas AM, Alabama, and North Carolina have one apiece.)
Only 17 Uncommitted OL prospects left from the Rivals Top 200. Considering the heavy hitters from each conference:
ACC - Clemson, Florida St, Miami, Va Tech
Big12 - Oklahoma, Texas, (WVU)
B1G - Nebraska, OSU, Penn St, Wisc
PAC - Cal, Oregon, Stanford, USC, Washington
SEC - Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, (Tex AM)
There are 24 big time schools fighting for the remaining 17. That's right. Less than 1 OL left uncommitted per school listed above. And we all probably believe that Alabama, Florida, Florida St, LSU, ND, Oklahoma, OSU, Texas and USC will end up with multiple. There's not enough left on the board for each of these elite recruiting teams to snag 3 (spread evenly, each of these teams could end up with 2.2.) And remember, Michigan has 3 of the top 9 OL; everyone else is left fighting for 2.2 among the top 28. That is how amazing Michigan's haul of 5 OL in the Rivals top 200 really is.
Excellent work on showing this in detail. When you think about it, it really is all the more amazing.
Yeah I think we are gonna be good for a while.
According to RCMB he is an MSU lock b/c of the OL haul we already have.
Schadenfreude from another Kugler thread:
I don't give a baker's fuck if I get downvoted into oblivion. This staff, has officially shit the bed. They've missed on 90% of their plan A targets. Patrick Kugler was qouted as saying he was an MSU fan. How the fuck do you continuously get owned by a school you've owned 4 straight years. I don't want to hear about tradition and what they did 100 years ago. No one gives a fuck. This staff flat out can't recruit worth dick. They're unorganized and inept. They scheduled a junior day when the head coach wouldn't even be there. I wouldn't commit either if the HC didn't even extend the courtesy of his full attention.
Sparty tears taste like Sugar.
silly question, but who said this?
at the Sugar Bowl and it was awesome.
A whole bunch of HS kids give a fuck, apparently.
And not just for RCMB.
Cam Dilliard is a lock there. And he is better than everyone Michigan recruited.
Too bad he is going to the SEC and there will be another meltdown for them when that happens.
He needs an offer from them first. There's a reason he hasn't gotten a Michigan or State offer. I know the State coaches feel he has already reached his potential.
In fairness that poster is actaully a lot more correct than the rest of the posters on that board.
I keep telling freinds who spank the sparty, if you don't keep pace right NOW, you will fall back to where you came from...Mediocrity!
Now that is hilarious!!!!
Thank you for sharing this! I love that fan's assessment! If that is true that their HC could not even attend their junior day, that is pretty sad. I am so impressed with his candor I won't even give him a hard time about his use of "unorganized" instead of disorganized which would have been a better fit. No doubt his grief caused a momentary grammatical lapse.
lol, you're spending A LOT of time digging through posts on a Rival's message board... might not wanna brag about that.
That is freakin priceless!
"We're getting our clocks cleaned by scUM. And don't give me the "Dantonio develops talent better line" ... these are guys Dantonio wants. Kugler was supposed to be ours."
If I was an MSU fan, I would wait to read RCMB until Monday. There's no need to ruin your weekend with news of your teams continued inability to beat Michigan in recruiting.
And then there's this:
"Wow. This is unbelievable I try to refrain from posting in such threads, but this is looking bad. It's like USC recruiting against Little Sisters of the Poor. Hoke is absolutely having his way with us right now. Even when Lloyd was here and we had JLS, we at least got these kids to give us a look. What Hoke is doing to Dantonio on the recruiting trail is absolute murder."
This is Michigan FerGodsakes!
EDIT: This was supposed to be a responce to what RCMB said.
if your spelling isn't any better than theirs...
