I wonder how many times Brady used that line.
Hoke in home with Countess tonight.
I can feel the momentum building and a Hello post coming by Monday.
Hello Hakeem Flowers. Not even part of the weekend visitors.
I forgot the 23rd was so close...well that's something to look forward to
I cant read the tweet (protected). However, i think it has to be a good sign that the backdrop is the Michigan Block M
Yea his background has been the block M for awhile. But hes been tweeting about Joe pa and other Penn state stuff lately till now. PSU visits him thursday he said earlier.
I guess I don't need to start drinking after all!
Come on Blake, tell Bradley or whoever to not bother to come by tomorrow.
PSU has an in home with him tomorrow..fingers crossed, he sees joepa as the crypt keeper
..and that becomes creeper. Which also suits JoePa
I thought I read somewhere that Paterno doesn't go to in-home visits anymore? Maybe I'm wrong.
..but in the interest of consolidation:
Hoke did indeed have an inhome with Cooper today. 3 things I got from the Scout article
1. We're not totally out of it
2. He might visit the 28th
3. The coaches (again) said we're running a 4-3
just saw on your twitter that boblichtenfels (dont know if hes an insider of sorts) said something about a current big ten commit who may possibly change his committment...can you offer any insight....anything do with us?
i was more wondering if it was potentially one of our recruits possibly wavering
Looking at our list of 4* commits, I really don't think it's one of ours. Brennen's blue, Kellen's blue, Blake (who dropped to a 3* yesterday, only to return to 4* status today)'s blue, Hayes is blue, and Fisher's pretty much already decommitted. The implication was that this player was a 'surprise' of some sort.
Maybe Lawrenece Thomas? (MSU commit) Just throwing that out there...
Edit: Someone already threw that "out there"...
I should have mentioned that. He made that much clear.
'Fraid not. Lichtenfels is a Scout insider who does spot stuff with ESPN, so he's credible. It's nothing definitively dealing with Michigan, but I thought it was interesting and in the somewhat off-case it has to do with Michigan, I wanted my followers to know first.
thanks for the response
any rumors about Lawrence Thomas now considering Michigan with the Mattison hire? I heard something from a friend but wanted to know if you heard anything credible.
That would be huge, but no I don't think it's the case. Or at least, I haven't heard anything. Your friend's probably either misinformed or lying. How close to the situation is he?
but I dont think he's anywhere close to the situation for it to be concrete. If it turns out true it'd be pretty awesome to steal states big recruit.
Any idea his source? I just did a quick scan of the interwebs and came up with absolutely zippo...but maybe I missed something. But you're right, it would be huuuuge.
I think Thomas has a huge Spartans tattoo on his arm.
I'd be shocked if he took a visit.
Raymon Taylor going Blue maybe?
Taylor's a 3* on Scout
If I had to guess I'd think that dude was talking about Raymon Taylor switching from IU to Michigan.
Some reason I was thinking Fisher switching Blue to diaherra green. Last I checked on scout he's still listed as a soft verbal.
Hoke needs to lock this kid up. He would be a huge loss if he doesn't end up in this class. I guess any loss at this point is a huge loss. This class is quite barren at this point. Go Blue Blake.
Good, Countess is a good corner and we need him. Good news, so weird.
Adding them both would honestly make me say -- Dallas Who?
Not that I was expecting anything less, but it is good to hear a lot of the news these past couple of days and am encouraged by the progress. The least that can be said is that the coach is putting in the hours and some and is clearly willing to do what needs to be done.
countess is a stud and i hope we land him, he could come in and play right away and be an impact player in our new regime. GO BLUE BLAKE!
I really hope we land this kid beucase i think he could be really good. But hopefully the guys from last year make some improvments so he doesnt have to play right away and just get tossed into the fray (that didnt work well last year). Hopefully he can come into a d-fence with a little more depth and stability where he can learn and develope (and make his mistakes on the practice field) as so we dont suffer through them on saterdays.
I was geeked about Cullen last year, hoping he could come in and make an immediate impact.... However as we learned there is a little talent and speed difference between HS and college (i am still bullish on CC - just wish he and the other two Frosh CBs werent thrown to the wolves)
Countess is solid from what I've seen. But I agree hopefully he can redshirt or at least not play a lot to the point where his mistakes are costly. I was pretty pleased with Avery though he got better throughout the year.
good news..looking at his highlight tape, it seems like he can develop into a lockdown corner type(d. warren) with good coaching. Great job by hoke retaining him and renewing interest frm darian cooper
Getting Darian Cooper is HUGE. We really need a true DT in this class.
I wouldn't get too excited over Cooper though it might be to late. That can change if he takes a visit but I'm not getting my hopes up.
Keep working Hoke! Fired up about how these last two days are going.
I hope I am not the only one concerned about QB depth. They may want to throw some offers up. I see USC has two 4* QB's committed. I am sure that will end well. Ask Tater.
I think they've both already enrolled....er at least one of them has. We supposedly offered BC commit Christian Suntrup today, however.
I haven't been keeping up with things. What's the status of Cardale Jones? Any chance he ends up at Michigan?
Lane Kiffin's ability to sell 18 year olds on things they shouldn't do is unparalleled. Remember that. He'll have 5* running backs taking out student loans to walk on at USC by next Fall with a promise of a scholarship after the sanctions end. It's crazy.
Actually since Lane Kiffin is a card carrying douch, the best sell he did was on his wife.
I long for the day when we once again redshirt freshmen instead of looking to them to save us.
How about Timmy Jernigan? Did he officially eliminate us?
And how about Christian Heyward. The guy is uncommitted, has pretty solid rankings, is from San Diego and was offered by SDSU... makes me think that he HAD to be contacted by Hoke right?
