Apparently, Justice Hayes is reopening his recruitment.
Justice Hayes back on the market
thank you very much!
We use more than one RB. Possibly they could compliment each other.
Dee Justice Gardner!
that I don't want to scare off Dee Hart in the name of getting an in-state guy. I have no reason to think he would look elsewhere if Michigan began courting Hayes, I would just make damn sure Dee knew how important he is to the coaches.
I think we can safely assume Dee Hart is going to get scared by another recruit. The more talent, the better.
Do you mean not scared. I agree. Justice can be RB and slot.
Yeah, that should be "not scared". Good athletes can play lots of positions. Courtney Avery was a QB in high school.
But with all the recent history of guys transferring if they aren't starting as freshmen, I would hate to see a him get mad. I am all for taking both, assuming everyone realizes that they have a place on the team.
But given that we've lost a ton of transfers, shouldn't that teach us not to put all our eggs in one basket?
I've heard that they speak highly of each other.
this offense likes to use multiple backs. Plus it's generally not a good habit to turn down 4 star top 100 kids from in-state who want to commit.
I know we need defensive guys, but we have a few more scholarships than we were anticipating, and unless the staff has reason to think taking Hayes would cost them Hart, I can't see any reason to say no.
The kid is a top talent and in state. Not to mention, he looks good not only running the ball but also catching it. Since the staff is still recruiting other back/slot players like Nealy and Rawls I can't imagine they would turn down Justice if he was interested. I would love to have him on board.
Remember one of the schollies this year was opened up by Austin White leaving.
if not, no thx.
Can he play safety or CB?
According to his Rivals profile...
On the Hoof: Hayes is built like a big cornerback.
Okay, that seals it...I'm a convert.
I'm fairly confident we'll end the class with either him or Thomas Rawls (pending ACT score)
"pretty sure" he knows where he wants to go. And the story was written by the Michigan Rivals guys.
I have no inside info whatsoever, but that's generally a pretty good heuristic.
I wasn't aware of that, but that sounds like promising news. As far as I can recall, his decision was pretty much between ND and Michigan. Don't wanna count the chickens before they hatch, however.
better chance he wants to visit Tennessee after Arnett committed down there
but something is off with this
I don't think he'd say that he "pretty much knows where he wants to go" without having visited there. And I don't think he'd say something that nebulous if he's just talking about visits, either
like I said something is missing, it doesn't add up. three days ago he was recruiting kids to ND, something is up
Maybe he just realized that Notre Dame sucks.
Man if ND sucks what is UM? http://www.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/fbt10.htm?loc=interstitialskip
A team that's beaten Notre Dame the past two years, and historically leads the series. Amirght?
haha I thought you guys would get a kick out of that
Silly Irish, always pokin' at me funny bone.
"If you can't laugh at yourself, laugh at Notre Dame"'
Good thing they busted out the green jerseys for the epic battle with army
One of the teams that beat ND?
Edit: Late again!
is the team that beat ND. Sorry, one of the teams that beat ND in South Bend. So, I'd say that makes UM pretty sucky, but less sucky than ND. Oh, how the might hath fallen...
Who knows though. For months now, everyone's been saying Hayes was rock solid to ND.
ND people have any idea what happened?
Makes sense if he was thinking about decommitting for him to look at Tenn. I would be surprised that he would want to come here with Dee here already.
Irish-have you heard anything else on Hayes
It's okay, we have Dee Hart and yes we do like to use more than one back, so we could use him, but I am looking forward to the Hopkins/shoelace/hart show. Unless they turn him in to a reciever like they did with Terrance Robinson, but I dont think that will happen. It is our destiny to have another Hart at running back.
A 5* back and a 4*, yes please!!
..Let's let Dee get his fifth star before we start calling him...you know.. a five star
I mean, we've heard that before.
Finally, maybe some Justice for RR.
Have you actually watched them play, or are you basing this on their little Rivals highlight clips?
We'll take him!
Of course, we can't jump to conclusions just yet. But if Hayes comes to AA, could we still take Nealy at the slot and then a WR? I really think Sousa's spot will be filled by a non-QB.
As it stands now, Kevin Sousa is occupying Kevin Sousa's spot. Unless something changes, that spot is reserved for him
He's visiting other schools right now--Louisville, Wake, etc. I think it's ok to speculate about his status. DG- I know you know your stuff-- why the reaction to my Sousa comment? I respect your views on the matter.
But what I meant by "something happen" is a decommitment. Speculation's cool, but I'm not going to take part until I know he's not part of the class. A lot of people are talking about him like he's already parted ways with the coaching staff, I still think there's a great shot he signs with Michigan.
I don't think Hayes is going to play slot. But if the class size remains what it is now, I don't think Michigan could take Hart AND Hayes AND Nealy.
I don't really care about Hayes. I want Watkins, Zettell, Frost, Jernigan, a couple O-linemen, and some DBs
doesn't impact the staff's ability to get any of those guys.
It might...if Michigan doesn't have enough room.
and let's be honest, we're not going to run the table on Zettel, Watkins, Walls, Lyons, Jernigan, Chris Bryant, Hobbi, Countess. We probably won't come close.
Agreed, but the possibility exists. None of us knows exactly how the class is going to shape up.
Let's put it this way then:
It's unlikely that taking Hayes would prevent the staff from taking any of the other guys that Michigan fans want us to end up with, especially as Michigan was likely looking to take another RB anyway.
Do you think Petro is a backup plan for Frost? I wonder if we'll offer him or wait for others to decide.
Yes, I do. I think Frost is more of a WLB prospect, and I'd say the same thing for Petro. Meanwhile, I think Desmond Morgan is a MLB prospect.
I would be very surprised to see Frost play WR in college.
What a bad two-three months for ND. How many recruits have they lost? Scandals, investigations, things are really going crazy down there.
a kid named JUSTICE carrying the rock for us? Seriously our RB production this year has been almost non-existant...We need the talent infusion at that spot...Hayes and Hart would be a big boost.
Is reporting that Hayes is still considering ND and that there's a chance he commits to them again.
This from twitter.
This is just bizarre. What'd they do, call him a name, which they're now retracting?
Shurburtt is clearing it up, he is still committed to ND I guess but looking to clear some thing ups with them I guess. not really sure what that is though
Did OSU offer? I didnt think they were ever in the picture?
wow what happened to all your points? were you on the receiving end of the neg a bang
well at least it wasn't in the face right? =)
Please lets land some defense, I think we are good at RB
Just said via twitter that it's between ND, Michigan, and Tennessee.
If he wants to come - do we say no? Don't think so.
Our real needs are on the other side of the ball (EDIT:) and place kicking.
I'm sure the coaching staff has a plan. I think it's their call.
(Yeah, I know... I'm Mr. Obvious.)
