Scouts headline: Michigan gets a commitment from a topinstater at the Spring Game today!
Edit: Royce Jenkins Stone.
Calling anyone with a Scout membership...There were a lot of instaters there today...
and fail by scout on letting google display more if its private page
Is it really RJS? Cause if it is, that is BIG (or B1G). TomVH, where are you!?!
It really is
Do we haz a happy?
My guess, Ron Thompson
errrr, guess not.
WELCOME RJS THEN!
james ross bettter hurry his ass up if he wants to come too
not that i cant see somehow holding down 4 lbs if they happen to be ross and bolden
i would estimate that the chances of us turning down a commitment from the #2 mlb in the country, and the top instate prospect, is exactly 0%
yet who knows how this class could end up shaping like if he waits til say signing day or after.
putting the decision to accept ross in a bubble there is no way you say no. but recruitment is definitley not an isolated program for the individuals coming in.
B. Hoke and Mattison have it going on. Our D is going to be suffocating soon. I also hope Sheldon Day saw some of the crazy things our DTs do.
Relevant information for those who inexplicably have never heard of him. Cass Tech LB. Probably the top LB target along with James Ross. 6'2" 215
Rivals250 to Watch, 4* #7 OLB to Scout, ESPNU150 Watch List
Reports offers from Alabama, Florida, Miami, Sparty, Oklahoma, Tennessee among others.
Sam Webb predicted that Ringer's announcement might set off a chain reaction of linebacker commitments given that there may only be three spots for Ringer, RJS, Bolden, Ross, etc. Anyway, this is great news.
Wow! Glad to be proven wrong after stating in another thread that I didn't think UM was in good shape for RJS.
Sweet (in best Eric Cartman voice)
i suupose, if we get Ross and Bolden, it might signal a shift back towards a 3-4. That kind of talent you don not turn away, and you do not bench.
MANBALL. That is all.
Yes i saw this kid play hes legit can anyone actually confirm this?
Thanks, I saw him play against my cousin vs Lake Orion it was Cass Techs only loss this is a huge instate get for us now if we can get James Ross it would be even bigger for us...
Is just ridiculous in the video. Just saying.
Everything about the highlight is EPIC.
From the faux-Latin chanting, I can only assume that RJS is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Fuck Yea!!! Welcome RJS
This is so awesome for our class. We need RJS to start recruiting everyone else now.
Excellent. Keeps that Cass Tech pipeline going
Always good to have a appearence from Hogan
In a couple years, linebacker might be the most talented position on the team. You already have Jones and Poole coming in and now with the additions of Ringer and Jenkins-Stone and the potential of a Ross or a Bolden coming in too. That's going to be an exciting defense to watch. I was thinking a 3-4 is likely too DG. A lot of (healthy) competition at that position.
This is great news. Hopefully, this will lead to an avalanche of top defensive recruits.
Im happy this guy isnt going to the lil bitch school up north we just need Ross now to keep him from sparty aswell.
Apparently RJS and others don't subscribe to some of the less flattering reactions from today's spring practice.
Welcome aboard, Royce.
Happy one of the Detroit guys pulled the trigger. Hopefully that keeps the ball rolling going into the summer.
Welcome RJS! Here's to plenty more top rated recruits coming our way. Go Blue!
A cigar !!! Great Get.
This is great news. Huge pick up. Hope the coaching staff can keep 'em rolling in.
Someone closer to the process can correct me, but this seems like the biggest surprise of the recruiting procees so far. Not that we got him, but that it happened relativley early.
timing. RJS offer sheet has blown up recently. However, RJS has long shown interest in Michigan even prior to Hoke/Mattison, and he has been on campus at least three times since NSD. That is not a kid who gives a surprising commit.
I would say that the report that if NSD were today, that Zeke Pike would sign with M per Sam Webb is much more surprising, given his national profile. A cass-tech kid who has been a long time presence in Ann Arbor is not a surprise, but simply a great job by the coaches to keep great talent in-state, when he had some other high profile offers.
We fuckin OWN Cass Tech! Welcome RJS.
This kid is an Animal... Welcome RJS!
Hellz yeah. Huge pick up and great to have you aboard son. Now it's time for some D-lineman!
There were tons of Cass Tech guys at the game today. Should have know something was up, but I wouldn't have guessed this. Let the good times roll!
Start hammering on Terry on now!
This class needs linebackers and lots of bodies on the lines. Two o-linemen and two 4-star linebackers makes for a really nice beginning this early in the process.
Woooooo! Congrats Royce, best decision you ever made in your life!
After the Spring game, I was standing behind Sam Webb when Coach Montgomery walked by. In a very quiet voice, Coach said to Sam "Did you hear about Royce?" and flashed a thumbs up and a smile.
Happy to see the "Hello" post when I got home!
