Jordan diamond verbal to michigan?
There's a silent commit as of today, so your guess is as good as mine. But if I was a betting man it would be ron Thompson. Would love it if it was diamond though
the thing that holds me back about thompson is that he was on th everge of announcing last week so if he commits i dont see it being a silent one.
that the said silent was a defensive player. So if Diamond actually did verbal, that would make 2 more in addition to the two LBs.
Yep, whoever the silent is, isn't on the offensive side of the ball. At least according to Tom Beaver. I"m gonna guess its either Sheldon Day or Joe Bolden...
edit- Also too the OP. There's no thread on Scout saying Diamond committed, I have Premium.
Sorry about that I was reading on bucknuts that a person was reading on scout that that's what was posted.
Could be what Tom tweeted about a silent commit but wont hear about it for a while.
It makes since becuase we have been his leader but he has said he doesnt want to make an announcement because his recruitment is bringing scouts to the school that will allow his teammates to be seen more than if he went ahead and committed.
As of a few hours ago, no. He's not announcing until during the season or signing day.
so it is confirmed that it is a defensive player? Or would you understandingly not want the give that up.
Everyone Jordan is definately a good player but could u imagine Diamond and Dawson? The soph out of Cass Tech! He is a beast and is definately going to grow into a very good lineman! We should offer him soon! Before anyone else does!
you are talking about a player who won't be on the field until about 2015, when our current freshman class will already be graduated, I think I will worry about that recruitment at a later date.
write a block that doesn't have a question? Which is then followed by WILD SPECULATION! And subsequently write another hyperbolic exclamation!
But seriously. A sophmore? I feel weird enough already speculating about rising Seniors who are over a year away from their redshirt.. don't. Just don't.
Tom, who are you referring too? The silent commit?
so you're new to the whole silent commit thing?
I will remain silent while you quickly tell me who committed?
I sent you a PM
message board have PM
It doesn't - he PostMarked him a letter. If we going back to vinyl albums why not?
Hope it was Churchill...he was the best!
(If it turns out to be Thatcher I'm sending her right back).
As much as I would like to know who it is I would rather Tom not tell us because the kid obviously doesn't want everyone to know. Espically after what happened with Ringer and the Dayton Daily
Read from above his post and put it into context. .. . .
Silent committments are so lame. Hello post or it never happened.
Talk about couples looking more and more like each other as they get older...
Hopefully we'll know more tomorrow with Sam's Gut feeling on WTKA...this is killing me!
Sorry commented in the wrong place
Had it been a silent comment it might have gone unnoticed...at least until Sam had a gut feeling about said silent comment. But no, you went and verbally commented...and in the wrong place...egads!
What are the main reasons or pros to silent commitments?
There are a number of reasons to silent commit. As one poster stated: It could be to draw scouts to a school that doesn't get scouted too much for the sake of other team mates.
It could also be that a recruit wants to take free official visits on some other university's dime in the fall.
If a recruit is at a school that is a traditional pipeline for a differnent school he wouldn't have to hear about the "wrong" choice he made for the rest of his highschool football career.
I'm sure there are other reasons , but those are the ones that immediately come to mind.
The advantage is being able to travel around the country on someone elses dime. I see it as a gamble, but who am I?
Ok if you say so but I think we should at least offer the kid I mean we offered shane morris! Dawson is already getting major looks and if we don't at least show him some intrest we're go gonna be SOL and what about the DT Darryl Goldsmith!? He's a beast as well Dan And Goldsmith Played side by side this season and if I mite add produce some very good sstuff! We need that CT relationship because its a pipeline for talent
First of all, as others have said, let's focus on this class. Also, you do realize that nobody on this board has any influence over who the staff looks at right? Finally, if somebody doesn't want to come to Michigan because we didn't offer him as a sophomore he probably has some character issues.
ànd Kenton gibbs is a monster we need to show Dawson and Gibbs some love because they will be 2 of the Best Lineman in Mi for the class of 2013
Bill Brasky is a ten-foot tall beast man, who showers in vodka, and feeds his baby shrimp scampi.
He is currently ranked eighteenth in the AP college football poll.
If Tacopants is being guarded by Bill Brasky, who comes down with the football? What about if Tacopants is being double covered by Brasky and mini-Ditka?
I agree on Brasky though. I know he's still in 3rd grade, but holy shit, two more months and he will be moved up to 4th. We need to get in on this kid NOW before everyone else does, or before he thinks we're not showing him any love.
FWIW, his mom said he has a Michigan lunchbox.
I hear Brasky once inhaled a seagull!
Brasky makes all women he sleeps with refer to him as Bear Bryant.
That shows some fine leadership.
None of you misunderstand that he is now a verbal silent commit.
None and prefix of "mis" cancel, producing:
"he is now a verbal silent commit."
Verbal and silent cancel, producing:
he is now a commit.
One more trivial cancelation and you get the essence of his existance.
"He is now" is what we ought to be embrassing. Isn't this obvious?
p.s. Please tell me you never passed a math class as UM. I remember thinking you had to know something about math in them.
Knowing we got a silent commit makes it a very good day and overall great weekend
Michigan solid for Jordan Diamond
Chicago Simeon offensive lineman Jordan Diamond has attended several Michigan home games and took several unofficial visits to the school this winter. The 6-6, 280-pound lineman had not had a chance to see the Wolverines this spring, however, until he attended their spring game on Saturday.
Paywalled, but thats the intro to it.
I don't think that is a commitment article....
Definitely not a commitment article, but I'm guessing we're definitely in the drivers seat with Diamond
I doubt it.
share your wealth of knowledge on this matter, that allows you to think this way.
Terry Richardson and Royce Jenkins-Stone talked about playing together on the next level. Is it James Ross?
I am as curious as the next person.
I think with his teammate coming now, that he may want to join him here. I'm sure royce has talked to terry richardson about coming here with him
Michigan was well behind for Richardson going into this weekend, and I doubt one visit would have swayed him when he's visited a bunch of times before.
I'm pretty sure it's someone else (in particular), but I don't like to muse about silent commitments. They want it to be quiet for a reason.
do know. The player in question is a defensive player. He is not highly rated. combined that with what Sam Webb has been saying about Michigan recruiting about to take off because the their are possibly fewer linebacker slots left. Then subtract the player is not highly rated (clearly meant to throw us off the scent trail) and you get. James Ross Biggs.
How do you know he is not highly rated. Ross is very highly rated
Sorry didnt read your comment well enough. For some reason, I don't think it's him.
I like this whole good players want to commit silently vibe. Let's finish out the recruiting cycle with 12 or 13 more silent commits and then Hoke unleashes the Mega Class next February.
Tom confirmed that it is indeed a defensive player. Ross, Richardson, Day?
DUSTIN DIAMOND? /screech'd
