I know I know -- I hate the Freep as much as anyone, and it pains me to link anything from them. But we're inside 24 hours before hearing on this kid, and I'm excited to see how it shakes out. http://www.freep.com/article/20130626/SPORTS08/306260021/recruiting-jamarco-jones-michigan-msu
Jamarco Jones Freep Article
Thanks, but I'm still not going to click the link.
It's actually by Tim Sullivan, who used to write for this blog.
Don't get too excited - recent insider stuff sounds like it's MSU.
That's ok, I would MUCH rather him go there than Ohio State.
11w will be entertaining should Jamarco choose us or sparty.
Freep, but it's Tim Sullivan. So it's worth a click.
Good for them.
Grimm committed to Pitt about aweek ago.
Doesn't sounds optimistic. But there are two things that still lead me to believe we got a shot.
1.) Brady Hoke
2.) You're not going to not commit to Michigan after visiting campus
huh...? your inability to speak English is good!
What was the middle part?
use correct grammar.
Perfectly allowable, understandble, and matter-of-factly, pretty standard. I dare say that his comprehension of the English language seems far superior to yours if we compare your comment to his (even with his stray "s" and the missing " 've").
The author of the article believes we are 3rd in a 3 school race. Not a good place to be.
The pertinent paragraph:
Despite the positives, Michigan may be playing from behind to MSU and OSU. That’s a shame, because Jones is a serious talent. Although he’s coming off shoulder surgery this spring, he is one of the strongest linemen in the Midwest – or even the country – when healthy. The 6-5, 285-pounder is mobile enough to play inside or outside on the offensive line, a versatility which has landed him distinction as the country’s No. 97 overall prospect.
on today"s recruiting round up says the only way we don't get him is if Jones is more worried about the depth chart than he says. Sam has MSU as the least likely. Says Michigan and OSU staffs did a great job connecting with his mom and MSU didn't. Said he would talk to Jamarco more today.
Steve Wiltfong sounded fairly pessimistic on 247 today. If Webb is actually talking to Jones, he's probably the most reliable source of anyone. It sounds like Jamarco has masterfully kept his recruitment a secret.
seem to be saying MSU lately but I think everyone is somewhere betrween 99 and 100% in the dark
Not going to break my no Freep ban until they admit how wrong they were. I simply don't care what they have to say until that happens.
...know where he is going to commit.
There's nothing in that paragraph that indicates why we are behind...it just says that we are. This article would be a lot more useful if it explained that rather than just saying it. Based on the quote earlier in the article, it sounded like he enjoyed Michigan a lot.
(meant in reply to the above paragraph about us being behind)
It doesn't even say we're behind, it just says we "may be playing from behind." That guy doesn't know s*it.
I've seen some people claim this kid favors MSU, others say OSU, and once in a while someone will point to UM. I think it's pretty clear, I'm going to go ahead and call this one: Jamarco Jones will commit to the University of Illinois.
I once saw Ohio's campus via BTN, I wasnt impressed either
one imaginary internet dollar he picks us. Don't ask me why.
Because why not? We've gotten every other kid we've wanted.
But before the bashing ensues you know this is Tim Sullivan right?
What is the price of a soul these days?
I like Tim but this is obviously a weak piece.
but he should write for a better newspaper
I've been saying along he goes to MSU. (I'm not drunk)
Even have kids? What is this world coming to?!
As usual, I clicked the link once for every person who said they would not click a Freep link.
I ignore freep links twice as much as the next guy, so you will have to click on it two more times for me.
i dont have enough points to post it but i am surprised no one is talking about SCott announcing this weekend...?
247 just bumped MSU and OSU to his Top 2. I think we can safely say we are out of this one.
For anyone in the know, does the Freep buy articles from recruiting sites? This looks exactly like the article on Rivals a few days ago.
It would have answered your question prior to your asking.
Wow, a simple question, but you had to be as much of a dick as possible.
says not the good guys per this morning's RR after talking with Jones last night. Looks like the Buckeyes
...who are we filling our WR and OT spots with?
