Didn't see you come in Capt. Sav-a- hoe. My apologies.
Hello: Reon Dawson
Apologies in advance, but 66 comments and not a single "Neon" Reon post. Had to be done. Welcome aboard.
Blue family. Work hard and enjoy AA.
Nebraska, Illinois...your commits are belong to us.
on taller wide receivers.
As you can imagine, our friends in Champaign-Urbana are none too happy tonight.....
Some quotes taken from their boards;
"A lot of our recruits would probably switch if Michigan offered them a ride..."
"THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE A LOSING TEAM UP AGAINST A PERENNIAL POWER HOUSE."
"And i am damn sick and tired of seeing this crap. we have to work our butt off to get a good player to come here. All Michigan has to do is offer a player and they commit. It is really sad and pretty unfair when you think about it."
"Yea I'd pick Michigan over Illinois any day of the week if I was a hs kid."
"Him picking Michigan had NOTHING to do with the partying. They're michigan, were Illinois. It's not a tough decision for a recruit really...we won't be winning any of those battles anytime soon."
"Like it or not, Michigan has earned the right to be able to offer and get whoever they want, they have won so many games, that's the way it is. It isn't unfair, Michign has worked hard to be where they are, they have played great football for a century and it shows."
"I love Illinois, it was the right school for me when I needed my college education, but if I was a football player and I had the choice between Illinois and Michigan, the choice is simple after just going to a 1 game at each place."
I've always had respect for Illinois and a little rivalry after they took us down a couple times.
Without looking it up, there may be 10 kids who Michigan has landed that had OSU offers in the last two classes. The people who bitch abut back to back top 5 recruiting classes is unreal.
Edit: I actually counted. 18 kids with an OSU offer. Really struggling.
Hmm, Henry Poggi, Mike McCray, Dymonte Thomas, Kile Kalis, Tom Stroebel, James Ross, Terry Richardson, Shane Morris, Chris Wormley, Ben Gedeon, Michael Ferns, David Dawson, DeVeon Smith, Logan Tuley-Tillman, Chris Fox, Devin Gardner, Ondre Pipkins and hopefully Derrick Green if I'm not mistaken all held/hold Ohio offers...
Please don't pretend to be a Michigan fan.
Are you an angry drunk? I had a good friend that was an angry drunk. I could never go drinking with him because he always got us in trouble. Don't be that guy.
You've made a good choice, my friend. Welcome to the Michigan family!
Best wishes to you, and welcome to the Blue. See you at The Big House.
And I don't know what's not to like about this kid. He's big, fast, and looks like he's got pretty good feet and hips. He may not be a finished product yet, but how many freshmen are?
We're blessed to have him. GO BLUE!
Losing damon webb is tough so hopefully parrker westphal will jump aboard to clear our salted wounds
Westphal isn't really a fair trade for Webb, but I guess he'd start to make up for the loss...
Congrads Reon! Big day in your life, enjoy it!
Another nice pickup by Hoke and company...I'm picking Reon to be the "dark horse" of this class.
Magnus you hear anything from Mcdowell..he seems high on State with all his visits
McDowell is supposedly a ways off from making a decision. He seems strongly interested in Notre Dame, Michigan State, and Michigan. He visited Michigan a couple times during the season, and there hasn't been much of an opportunity to visit Ann Arbor here in January, so I wouldn't be too concerned. There's still a long way to go.
thanks for the info..taking hand and mcdowell would be tits..i have high hopes for 14
What do you guys think about Dawson's feelings towards Ohio?
“Until I die, I’m gonna be a Buckeye fan even though I’m going (to Michigan),” Dawson told The Dayton Daily News. “When we play (OSU) I’m gonna still bring my ‘A’ game. But, I love Ohio State.”
haha, my bad.
