The twitter traffic from Sam Webb is pretty heavy this morning. and On GBW radio hour there was much talk about Ben Gedeon and his interview with GBW. I think it time to buckle up.
I did not make this headline up
*insert funny buckle up picture here*
Not to be a debbie downer but I don't think he commits. I'd like to be wrong.
I know Gedeon likes Michigan a lot, but I don't think he's going to commit. I think he's trying to get a better feel for the academics and the coaching staff, and this visit might put Michigan on top, but I don't think he's ready.
But I hope this gentleman has already completed his procreatin'.
For someone who can evaluate these players better than me who is better out of McCray and Gedeon? I ask this because Sam Webb seems to think that we will take Levenberry and one other linebacker(most likely whoever commits first of O'Daniel, McCray, Gedeon). I personally think we should take 3 if not 4, which seems to be the popular opinion on this baord.
but consensus seems to be that Gedeon is super-underrated so he might belong up in the top 50 range with O'Daniel and McCray. I'm not going to be picky
Well if you look across the rankings, McCray is ranked 4-stars on rivals, and 247, and ranked higher numerically then Gedeon. However, Gedeon is also ranked 4-stars on scout (as well as rivals and 247), which indicates he was in their early top-100, where McCray was not ranked by Scout yet. So, at this point, I'd just like to take either.
Scout has them #11 for Ben, #14 for McCray.
247 has them #7 and #18. Probably well within the margin of error as far as recruiting rankings go, but Ben does seem to have the edge in the 2 detailed Ohio rankings that have come out.
Just one guy's opinion, but I like Gedeon better. He's got a graet combination of athleticism and intelligence, which is perfect for a linebacker. He also has a great LB frame.
Yeah, we haven't had a Hello post all weekend. It doesn't feel right. Buckling and hitting F5 alot today!
Buckled up and ready to go!!!!
I don't think Ben commits. That said, if his brothers attend the Ivy League I don't think he is going to give up rank at the dinner table by attending O$U. His brothers should know the difference between a Michigan degree and one from OSU or BGSU.
The only way I see him committing is if he is worried about McCray taking his spot next week. Perhaps the coaches tell him it's one or the other and that gets him to commit. Otherwise I see him waiting at least a bit.
"Perhaps the coaches tell him it's one or the other and that gets him to commit."
This is the kind of comment that ends up feeding the trolls over at RCMB.
Every time Michigan gets another top 100 4 or 5 star player they come back with the "Marky D. coaches em up" meme or the "well, Hoke and Mattison are high pressure recruiters unlike Marky D etc. etc."
Of coures, I have my thoughts on RCMB's take...
I see it as being straight up with kids more than high pressure. Plus I'm just some random guy speculating about something that has nothing to do with me. Let them flame away at RCMB
But how is that high pressure? We have more guys visiting right now than we have spots for. It's not like they're tricking him, they're just telling him that there are other guys at his position also interested, and if he waits too long we won't have room for him.
I get it that this is unfamiliar to Sparty, where they never have the problem of more talent than they have room for.
That being said .....no reason not to take all 4. Dorian can play his own hybrid safety backer position and McCray might eventually have bus hand in the dirt. All of them are super talents and shouldn't be passed on.
I like Gedeon's film better than Mccray
Yes! Buckle time baby. Gedeon and who else?
[ED:BISB - You get the idea]
This place used to be better than this.
What is better than this?
My comment was for a different pic, one that was nsfw. And it wasn't worthy of the blog.
Well done BISB.
Of a blue footed boobie by chance
It replaced... other, non-avian boobies
Glad to see at least one more fan, usually I have to go to a "special" website to connect with other people who prefer their boobies avian.
Blue foot fetish sites are hard to find these days, too.
You should hit up one of the members of this family: http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/offbeat-news/blue-fugates-real-life-smurfs/5313
for the blue footed boobies!
Both look like great talents. I say make room for all of them. Wow two years ago we couldnt find a LB..now we have a chance to be stacked!!
Best. Username. Ever.
Mccray told dukes he knows where he's going
does any one know when the viset is going to happen
does any one know when the viset is going to happen
sorry double post
More like triple post.
i asked when the viset was by that i was asking what time the viset was so calling it redundent is not acurate ilove michigan sports and have enjoyed the info on this site but the secret mgopoint and the poor judgement of post is real annoying
He seems very strong in his opinion that we'll only take 2 LBs.
I still think he's wrong.
Do the coaches think McCray is a LB, or a future DE is the question
