Go Blue! Earn your coffee, Brady!
Hoke visited GR Christian today. (Harris and Doles)
"Second place is a set of steak knives."
Third place is you're fired.
The Ted Gill Story
Coach D: "Ted, you've finished 3rd in recruiting battles consistently. MGoBlog has our class rated ninth or tenth now"
Coach Gill: "Mark, third is almost first...kind of like how we almost make a BCS game some years"
Coach D: "Ted, third place is you're fired".
What do you mean, "We lost another one to Michigan?" I don't underst...
The real favor is to take my advice and fire your f@&$ing ass because a loser is a loser.
Brady Hoke = Alec Baldwin's character
Urban Meyer = Ricky Roma
Mark Dantonio = Williamson
The plaque for the alternates is in the ladies' room.
We need those two GR kids for sure!!
If we could snag these kids it would be HUGE. I still think Harris will be a bit tough to pull but Doles seems to be looking good. My feelings on Harris is purely a gut feeling/speculation.
Harris would be a huge get, not just for a position of need, but also to see the meltdown in EL...Priceless.
What's the general idea on how good Harris is? Top 250? Top 100? 50? Receivers' highlight tapes generally look about the same to me with only a few exceptions.
Of him being the #1 receiver and a 5 star on Rivals but I'm not sure how accurate that memory is.
He'll be up around there on Scout, too. Trieu has vouched for him as the #1 in the state and McDowell is already a 5 star.
I think most sites have him between the 5th-10th best receiver in the country. Obviously it is early at this point and this could change.
Scout has him at 6
Wow I didn't realize the sites had evaluated to that degree already for 2014. There goes my night. Thanks. I think..
He's widely considered 50-100 now and should climb if he spends the summer on the Fball circuit instead of AAU Bball.
His rating is limited by his level of competition, so tearing up 7-on-7 tournaments or top talent at camps will prove his skill.
Artavis and Drake would make a great WR class.
Not sure what you mean by limited by his level of competition but if you are referring to the schools GR Christian plays then I think you are mistaken. Their conference includes schools such as East Grand Rapids and Lowell who are often in the state championship game and this year they nearly beat Cincinnati Moeller. Plus they played and beat arguably the best team in the state OLSM in the state championship game.
discount stats for kids in classes & states that are not talent rich in their eyes. According to Rivals, OLSM has 0 kids with BCS offers and East Grand Rapids has 0. If he lit up Damon Webb then the scouts would give him more credit.
Fair or not, kids in Div 1 and in FL or TX or GA get the benefit of the doubt from scouts. MI is not a hotbed of talent and Div 3 adds to the question mark.
I don't doubt his ability. Hoke clearly doesn't doubt his ability.
Watch the div 3 state championship game between GRC and OLSM and you will have no doubt about how good he is. If he is not the top receiver in the country for 2014 I will be shocked.
Harris may not go to Michigan, but it seems quite likely he will NOT be a Spartan.
Exactly. His talk when he opened up again was something like "I'm to start looking a top football programs" aka not MSU. MSU fans who hold out real belief he'll choose MSU at this point are like Michigan fans who are still hoping Demar Dorsey starts at Michigan.
Harris will be a tough pull from what I've heard and read. Ohio State, Alabama, and Florida are teams that have thrown their hat in the ring. We should have a chance though because he is an instate prospect and also likes our offense.
Mattison is on our side.
One more, and we'll get another GRIII
Probably drove past him on my way home from work!
There are two elite in state prospects this year, Mcdowell and Harris. Michigan must land them both.
McDowell and Hand bookend DEs?
Yes please. Where do we sign up?
Well, there's Webb, but he's gone to the bad guys...
Just my opinion, but I think Harris and Mcdowell are both a notch above Webb and not just because Webb is going to Ohio. Harris has the size and speed combination that NFL scouts drool over. McDowell is as explosive as they come for a 6'6 300 pound frame.
or a steak dinner on me to every person in this thread.
Chop house? I'm going to hold you to that.
Are steaks good in Bolivia if you're wrong?
It's where a lot of cheap beef imports come from.. McDonald's and such.
So.. No, not really.
What about vegetarians?
with a baked potato and asparagus.
You get a steak too. It would be unfair to deny you.
I missed the last one so I'm here to cash in.
I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to eat vegetables. Nonetheless, I hope I don't get this particular steak dinner.
I'm only commenting in this thread for the free steak dinner.
Hopefully I'll never have to hold you to it!
I like steak
I hope to not have any. Would rather have the other.
Yumm...Be glad to buy my own when Harris goes Blue!
Did somebody say Steak ?
Can't be Ponderosa though!
For the steak bang opportunity.
You totally stole my joke...kind of...not really...I'm only posting so that I can get a free steak.
I could go for a steak
Partial to Ruth's Chris. Cowboy ribeye, rare please.
It was great. Wife had the filet. Best she's ever had. Ruth's Chris best steak anywhere.
The steaks have never been higher!
I'm here for the steak.
Will that be BK's finest steak dinner?
Because when he commits there will be many of us expecting you to keep your word. If not we will hunt you down and put you on a slow ship to Bolivia.
I came for the steak. I stayed for the information.
Here for the steak.
Is a close friend of Harris and we have a great chance with Booker coming for bball. It could give M another pro in Harris' book in the end.
I see what you did there.
Oh, and I like steak also.
NEED MOAR WR'S. Drake Harris please.
I like steak. Count me in.
Did somebody say steak!?!?! I'm in, but I'd rather not have to cash in this bet.
From his avatar, I think you'll have to fly to Texas first.
but hope to have to buy my own.
had Rib Eye tonight on my new grill, medium rare, with french beans and twice baked potato and a mushroom, onions, bacon with garlic and thyme steak topping, mmm it was awesome.
Made dinner after the BBall team did their thing, that thing I enjoy so much, kicking ass and winning!
Beat the Hoosiers!
going to be putting the full court press on Mr. Hand over the next number of months. If anyone can turn him Blue it's those guys. Maybe they can add Derrick Green as a 4th recruiter?!
and I expect to collect if necessary; I will hunt you down for it, only if you are not in Bolivia.
Glad he did. Tired of hearing of all the Ohio recruiting being done there by Coombs.
Ribeye from taste of texas.
