Treadwell knows commits come in pairs right?
Hello: Ross Douglas
How about a DB not a DE? hahaha
Umm...he is a cornerback, not a defensive end.
Well actually I think John Madden said it best, "The team that scores the most points will probably win the game."
Man I like the way our defense is going to look..
hope everyone is still safe even though we didnt buckle up
Wow this may be an interesting weekend.
What happens if D.Green wants to commit?
D Green never talks about us. Where is everyone coming up with this?
But but... I thought Green and Dawson are best buds for life.
Clarification: I don't think D.Green is coming. I think he's going somewhere in the south.
I was posting a hypothetical; how the coaches would deal with a D.Green trying to commit, when there is only 1 spot left and the theory is it is reserved for Treadwell.
I think the hypothetical question is the other way around . . . how would the coaches deal with D. Green saying no? I think we just saw how.
The coaches probably already have a very good idea of who's coming and they are acting accordingly.
I would guess they might ask someone to greyshirt, or they are expecting greater attrition
Wow that was fast! You could say that ROSS was all BUSINESS about this decision.... no?
Ok sorry ill go put my head down now.
by not putting "YEEAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!" after that.
I guess we're now only pursuing Green and Treadwell, if they both want to jump in they will be able to IMO
So I just back from class and turned my computer on. On my twitter feed, I see Steve retweeting the link to Ross Douglas' hello post. I definitely had a combination of confusion, shock, and elation.
I really like our secondary recruiting this year. Looks pretty solid I love these coaches and how they evaluate talent. Ross Douglass might be scrappy enough to fit the mold of the boundry side corner. Can't wait to see how these kids develope under Mattison and co.
This happened so fast that ESPN bottom line actually broke the news to me. I literally can't believe ESPN is becoming relevant in recruiting. *head explodes*
He "Seriously" knew about this I guess.
He's real good!
Welcome and do great things!
Finally, after a rough day we get some great news. Welcome to the team Ross.
The lyrics were great... the chorus not so much.
So much for visiting Notre Dame this weekend. Can't complain, though. Welcome to Michigan, Douglas.
BK needs some tylenol
this one is going into the file for use later in the season. that is all
First-Hello Ross, we are glad to have you
OT- I decided to check out how this might change rankings and I hit up ESPN, I accidently clicked the wrong rankings getting the postseason rankings. The rankings by the pros(both) seemed accurate but the fans didn't even have Michigan in the top 25. Beyond that ND was in the top 25 and Ohio has number 6. ESPN is absurd.
We're glad you decided to avoid that whole situation down at PSU. Good luck to you.
It's a great move for Ross. Ideally, Treadwell will close out the class before awkward situations arise - i.e., having to say no to Green and McQuay.
Welcome to the fold. Go Blue
Welocome Mr. Douglas!
Nice. The kid certainly is decisive.
that's a good observation.
Douglas definately doesn't like to be the last one standing when the music stops. I hope he can make that work on the field for us.
Welcome to Michigan Mr. Douglas.
Don't really need a CB. Are we trying to "save" some kid? Not sure I want to be tied this mess in any manner. Let USC and Ohio do the poaching. Hoke first mistake. I think so. Ither recruits out there at other positions of need.
I guess that's why you're not a Michigan football coach.
Yeah, not like we didn't already recruit the kid. It's not his fault and why would someone not touch him?

reason you are not a coach. Hoke points at double posts and they disappear.
If we didn't need a DB then why were we looking at Fuller and McQuay? Apparently this coaching staff wanted another DB and they got a gritty,fast, and breakup machine with Douglass. This is a great pick up and were going to have one of the best pass defenses in the nation in 2 years
I like this commitment a lot. We have been on the outside looking in for both Fuller and McQuay for quite some time. Waiting any longer would have most likely resulted in us getting a much lesser player at CB than Douglas. And Douglas is a pretty darn good player in his own right.
