Excellent work, some more new material for Hoke and Mattison to play with
this may be of some local interest
Excellent work, some more new material for Hoke and Mattison to play with
first it was touching... now it's playing with. WHat the heck is going on around these parts.
1st you put us through the agony of Zettel's announcement to PSU and now u say this recruit commits then turn around 10mins later and say he's just offered? An offer is a lot different than commit....Michigan has offered 100+ kids, we have 11 commits....dick move BKFinest
I'm assuming we throw him in the Bolivian side.
I think bk misses RR so much that in honor of the ninjas rich used to recruit he decided to ninja edit his original post. Well played
This was a title change from Hello Keith Heitzman, to Keith Heitzman offered. Just throwing that out there for everybody. Do as you see fit is all that I am saying.
got a lot of nerve showing your face around here!
NOW this is hilarious!!!!
I've been waiting so long to neg you.
Welcome back though.
HAHA best post ever thank you for the laugh. And welcome to Michigan Keith.
Well played Bk, well played. Have to ask though, any word on Zettel committing?
That his bluetooth was f'd up when he told me where he'd be going.
Probably that damn auto spell that got you.
This poignantly fits both the original post and the new post. Good job.
has become his own MGoBlog meme. I don't even feel like negging him anymore.
I will feel like negging him again.
.....are the rules for negging memes different? Should we get a ruling on that?
Withholding judgment until I see something from someone else who is just slightly more reliable...
Not that I don't trust him....but I don't trust him.....
Yeah, or maybe ESPN
FWIW he never said that Heitzman committed, he just said offered. He said Heitzman is a Vandy commit.
He then edited to change committed to offered...in other words, he BKFinest'd it.
Well that settles that then, my apologies aaa
the original post was titled: Hello" Keith However, and was then changed. bk is full of stinky shit. Not the kind that only smells half bad but the truly stinky kind.
So is this really happening?
WTF...you just did it again??? Where's my pitchfork, you're done.
we can coach him up.
He was a verbal to Vandy before, but you know, I think Michigan has a bit more pull.
Good to have you back man
Zettel's parents saved you some pie. I think it's called humble if memory serves....
Good lord BK. BOLIVIA
Offer list isnt too impressive. Vandy, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, then the MAC. Have to trust the coaches on this one.
Nice. Looks like all Mac-level offers but I gladly welcome him at a position of need.
It's a message board, I can't fucking see you.
Where are you seeing news of his commitment? Nothing is showing up on Google Realtime.
Edit: You sly, title changing bastard.
Will the 3 star mafia go after Hoke like the did RR?
It's interesting that Rivals lists him as a "solid verbal." The reality is that there is no such thing as "solid" or "committed" until the paper is signed. So it could be a very interesting couple of weeks -- both good and bad -- until NSD. I tell my daughter that she will know that a man is committed to her when he marries her and not a moment before. Likewise for recruiting "commitments" and signing day.
i'm sure he's a good player, looks like he's about ten years old
He only looks really young because you are getting really old.
+1 for Spiny Norman
BK is the informative part of the update coming?
According to Rivals hes a solid verbal with Vandy.
Is this more of a "has the size, but not the ability" kind of of pickup? I don't mind picking up physically sound kids without technique for the DL, because Hoke and Mattison should be able to coach them up pretty well.
at DE, he plays very high.
That's true but he looks pretty athletic and farily quick. Probably will be able to coach him up.
Hoke might move him to LB so that he will stop smoking weed.
so someone please give me something to get excited about this offer. Anything.
He always seems to know where the QB is relative to him, based on that reel he played the pass twice a couple times and got his hands up for some good deflections. Not sure of the quality of his competition though, so hopefully someone who knows more about HS football divisions in Columbus can elaborate.
competition is OK. Plays against a lot of larger middle class/upper middle class suburban high schools.
That being said, I can't think of too many OSU caliber recruits that have come out of the conference. Mike Adams is probably the last.
Well pretty good competition actually . Last year he absoluetly bullied the very very good offensive tackles of Glenville . If that counts for anything .
Is this to be taken seriously because I didn't spot a /s in your thread
I'm looking into this. I'll let you know if I get a hold of him.
My mouse always gravitates towards your up vote, weird...
Any news on the Frost front? Haven't heard anything about him since news broke about Auburn accepting his commit. Why can they accept Westerman's commit right away and old off 2weeks for Frost? Probably because they've had 8-10 LB commits in last 2 yrs...
After seeing a little film, this kid uses his hands quite well and has a pretty nice spin move to go with it. He looks pretty polished for a high school kid.
Edit. Bk you better hope TomVH confirms or it's off with your head.
Heitzman, Oy Vay! Does that mean that we need to hire a Jewish coach so Keith Heitzman will have a coach he can relate to?
Yeah, he's probably just German
Funny, he doesn't look Druish
ESPN article talking about Westerman flipping from Texas to Auburn has quotes from the man himself:
After the season, my position coach left the program and then [six] other coaches left. It just all changed. There was no more relationship to hang my hat on, and my position coach is [who] I will spend about 90 percent of my time [with]. It was just too little too late. Auburn had it all and I was very close to my position coach there over the last 8-10 months.
As has been reiterated around these parts, the late coaching change has hurt Hoke's chances of landing elite talent this year. That being said, I think so far he's doing well in getting good players interested, and some good players are going to sign with us this year. But let's not (completely) freak out this Feb 2nd if we aren't where we all want to be with recruiting, mmmmkay? Let's wait until 2012 to get a good assessment of were Hoke is with recruiting. (Unless, of course, he exceeds expectations in which case party hard and forget sanity.)
/preemptive plea for Feb 2nd sanity
EDIT: This is not saying Keith Heitzman is not an elite player. I don't know anything about him, and for all I know he will be the next Vernon Davis/Dallas Clark/Dwight Freeney/whoever depending on what position he will play, and is not a comment about any of our other current commits. Just a comment in general highlighting what we all know - that late coaching change = difficult to estabish ties to new coaching staff in such a short amount of time.
As a nashvillian, I think stealing Kieth Heitzman would be downright sad. Its been a tough couple of years for the dores especially in recruiting. Last year their only rivals 250 recruit ever died, he got shot. Poor Vanderbilt.
For what it's worth, i'm not certain. His parents are indicating that there is a "decision" coming Saturday. By "decision", I think that means either a switch to UM, or a solid commit for Vandy.
Also, Hilliard Davidson (the H.S. this kid is from) is a major power here in central ohio. They won the division 1 (Big School) state championship two or three years ago, and always seem to go far in the playoffs. It would probably be a good school to get a commit from...
Chill out on the 3 star criticism guys, we aren't going to get a great class given the timing of our coaching hire. Gotta fill it out with depth at positions of need. Hope for 3-4 4 stars and take our pick of the 3 stars that are left.
Hopefully Heitzman is a blocking TE, I don't think he's what we need at DE really, though I'd live if that were the case. We don't have any blocking TEs really and they are needed in Hoke's offense. Miller is moving to TE most likely and should be a stud, but he's more Antonio Gates type than anything else.
