Jordan Payton Update
Not that I wouldn't mind seeing Payton, but wouldn't our chances be better with Madaris?. His highlight film looked good, but I guess all highlight films do.
yes, thank you aquaman is all we can say. Who said aquaman didn't have any power?!?
Can talk to fish.
Hmmm...I wonder what that says about Stonum...
It says nothing. Even if he comes back, he only has one season left.
All this says is that they still want 28 and aren't confident with 4 other guys. I still like our chances with Garnett, Grant, and Reeves. The coaches just want 1 more.
They clearly want Payton and have for a while. If theyre recruiting him it would make sense that they say they want 3WRs, even if they are just looking for the best talent available.
The consensus up to now has been that Michigan would only take 2 WR's in this class. Has it suddenly changed for a reason, or have the coaches always wanted to take 3? We'll see.
Last Aquaman post: "I love you."
This Aquaman post: "Will you marry me?"
I haven't seen this kind of love blossom since the halcyon TomVH days!
With all those other west coast schools he's considering, you still think buckle up? That would be very good news.
Yeah I see your angle and have to agree. This reminds me a lot of Dillion Baxter. I think they both liked Michigan maybe even more so then the school they end up choosing due to not wanting to leave the West Coast.
So he choose to not put the michigan hat on the table or did the Rivals basicly tell him what other hats had to be put up there?
I would take him if he wanted to come to michigan but it really seems like he wants to stay on the west coast.
Either way good luck and best wishes on wherever he ends up for the the next 4 yrs.
I read that as he was going to go to Cal and the other hats didn't really matter.
but I think he stays West.
I feel like Michigan's chances are legitimate here.
How would you rate it on the Arnett scale? Would you BKFinest it?
Well, I won't go down that road again. The difference this time is that I talked directly to Jordan and didn't hear this from a second hand source. Either way, I apologized for the Arnett situation because if I revealed who the original source was, you'd understand why I was confident in it. Oh well.
the info and interviews are obviously appreciated. Impossible to be 100% correct in this arena.
I was confused too. Directed at KJ; Lo siento
I know who his source was and I would have trusted him also. Sources can be incorrect anyone who followed the Gunner Keil situation today knows that.
Don't apologize Aqua. In fact, don't even dignify it with a response.
I'm just messing around, not trying to be a dick. Thanks for keeping us informed!
some people can't take a joke
Anything in particular he said to you? Or just a feeling?
Holy aqua man! I have a TREMENDOUS boner right now!
Could be cryptic.
With only so many "buckle ups" left in this class, each one takes on added importance.
I have this suspicion that you are in fact Loyd Brady and your are using your fame to get interviews with these recruits. Just come out already. Lol
Tom is working under an alias. The world wide leader wouldn't allow him to write here as well so he created another account (and a website).
Seriously though, your access to recruits is excellent and your input and interviews have really helped fill the recruiting void left here when Tom left. Thanks!
or all those Beviled Guilt donations allowed Brian to clone TomVH using a stolen lock of his hair, if a crazy dog lady can spend 50k on a cloned dog than we can fo' sho get TomVH back.
lol I can't wait until NSD. The suspense is killing me w/ so many recruits
Somebody get Shane and PeeWee on the case..
PS, 1000 points if somebody makes a Shane / Pee Wee ; Batman / Robin avatar.
I'd hate to be the guy who has to explain to Pee Wee/Shane why he is Robin.
PeeWee as Robin, it would just be funnier that way.
Kid sounds like he just enjoys playing the field.
Because the coach that recruited him just left? He's not playing the field. He's being smart and making sure he makes the right decision.
and how do you have these TomVH-like connections?
Ugh.....Garnett, Reeves, and now Payton again? I can't take anymore waiting. Can it just be NSD already?
But seriously, adding the likes of Payton, along with Darboh....I'd be feeling pretty good about that.
I think if we could get Payton, we'd have the beat group of receivers since manningham, arrington, and mathews. Or edwards, avant, and breaston. Oh how I have missed those days.
Don't forget about Chesson. There's no reason he shouldn't be a 4*
You mysteriously appeared on this blog shortly after TomVH's child was born. Tell it to me straight - are you his son?
In all seriousness, who are you and how do you get the scoop so fast? How do you get in touch with the recruits so fast, build rapport in the recruiting circles so quickly, etc? I'm genuinely curious. Are you trying to make it in the recruiting biz full-time?
I would be interested in hearing more about you, your background, why you're interested in recruiting stuff. Seriously.
This will show you who he / she is....
Who is your daddy, and what does he do?
You are quickly becoming my favorite poster on the board
TomVH? Is it you?
He is channeling Lloyd Brady. Lol. Seriously, great job. The interviews are very nice. Why so optimistic on Payton? Curious, or a feel that you get from him.
I really was not expecting Michigan to still have a legitamate chance at Payton after all the rumors about him staying on the left coast turned out to be accurate when he chose Cal. However I have no problem standing in line again for this coaster ride! My belts buckled, leggo!
I want Garnett, Reeves, Grant, and Payton.
I want Garnett, Reeves, Grant, and Payton.
This kid just can't get enough attention. The only reason he probably committed to Cal was to get on TV. Even if he did come here he would probably transfer after a year. UM should just move on.
his twitter is looking like he may come to Michigan
you mean *payton*? for fuck's sake, man.
because it sounds like the Christian Bale rant. "For fuck's sake man you're amateur! Do I come on the set and trash your lights? Want me to fucking trash them???"
We're fucking done professionally.
Buckled up from last year
...and it is getting a bit inconvenient. But I can wait a few more weeks.
I wonder where AAAMichFan is now? Nice work giving the OP
shit for his original Payton update.
ever seen Aquaman and TomVH in the same place?
'tomvh still loves us' conspiracy theory
As a Chicagoan I have to feel that anyone named JORDAN PAYTON is destined to be a huge star. I want this kid!
Of course, we need a 3rd WR in this class. As we progress towards the complete Gorgeous Borges offense, I would expect Denard's number of pass attempts to rise significantly, and then with Gardner, Bellomy, and Morris in the wings, WRs are going to be a hot commodity in AA.
call Dorial and Stefon and find out what's going on!
