I like this.
L. Marshall decommits from OHIO
to the buckeyes. It might just be the situation at that moment that your judgement strayed a little bit.
Come and stick with the good guys. GMAT will train you and your future is very bright, just like any given sunny day in Ann Arbor.
Why did he commit to Ohio in the first place? (Answering my own question:) Rumor has it that Urban told him basically that if he didn't commit right away, he may not have an offer at a later date.
Makes you wonder what happened that made him have such an about-face.
Recruiting at the BCS level is just so corrupt and crooked that nothing really should be out of the question anymore.
and I'm assuming he liked what he saw.
Or maybe he flipped a coin. I dunno
that OSU will now back off. Meyer has been embarrassed and he won't let that happen again.
I know they are frowned upon here, but I'm afraid Urban is coming awfully close earning one. How can anyone believe a word out of the man's mouth?
I could definitely see this being true, but where is the rumor being circulated? This is the first I've heard about it.
I've seen it from a couple posters on premium boards ... but it's never been attributed to a recruiting analyst, so that's why I said it's a rumor.
I really hope his intent was to troll the entire ohio fanbase.
Flip Dat Shit Brady. You gotta flip dat.
Maybe this de-commitment has something to do with hoke dispelling any rumors that he is going to the nfl...??
Herm was right?!?!
Don't ever doubt herm. HERM
Herm said he would committ to us. Not quite right.
Last time he was wrong, Arch Duke Ferdinand paid severely.
I thought the last time Herm was wrong it rained for 40 days and nights.
Herm for Heisman
He said this after tonight's visit?
According to eleven warriors his commitment wasn't committable.
Urbz cooled on him.
Prob pulled the schollie
Hell, this must be because of all the Michigan jerseys selling in Ohio!
I heard somewhere that Hoke is changing the tide of the rivalry.
Thanks for keeping this alive!
and I'm sure Coach Hoke does too, Lawrence!
Snake Oil if this happens for Michigan. GoBlue!
Lawrence Marshall looks like he is going to be a high maintenance recruit.
Why? Because he got a little too excited and comitted too early? Come on now...
Really? What about him seems high maintenance? He had a great visit at a great football school with a coach known to be a hell of a recruiter, got excited and committed and then decided to back out after having time to think.
My head hurts. I hate recruiting...but I love it so much. I just don't know what to think about the madness. So many questions and no answers.
Just a little recruiting going on. It is no place for a nervous person.
He commits to OSU and then decommits two days later? I think we just found the 2014 version of Joe Mathis.
So let me see if I got this. A full year from signing day a Michigan kid commits to OSU and then less than a week later decommits?
Damn....even Taylor Swift thinks that break-up was fast.
Let's hope he and Ohio never ever ever get back together.
Suddenly I have positive feelings associated with Michigan athletics!
Just for fun I'm going to link to this novella on eleven warriors about how urban Meyer gets whomever he wants whenever he wants and that includes players from the state of Michigan ( supposedly). I love reading this piece now, for schadenfreude related reasons.
I dont think they get the joke.
I think Hoke has changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling Michigan jerseys is a good start.
There are a couple of good users on Mgo, but for the most part it is filled with delusional people.
That is classic. Great find, thanks for sharing it.
There's no reason to hold a spot in reserve for a prospect outside of Rivals 250.
Except for the part about, well, the fact that he has a scholarship offer. You stay classy Ohio
"The original offer that he committed to was not, in fact, a commitable offer".
'We never wanted him'
Honestly...the shit talking on twitter from OSU fans is incredible. I know there are bad apples in every bunch, but Marshall is retweeting a ton of bad stuff from OSU fans.
I'm sure I'd be bitter too but taking it out on a kid you didn't know 24 hours ago on twitter is completely brainless...
He's a year away from signing...this shows his commitment to programs...it's a tough decision for 18 year old kids but I'm from the old school: Your word is everything. Don't 'commit' unless your done.
Can we just put it in the banner of mgoblog and mgoblue and the freep and WN an wherever the hell else people look or this info "don't talk shit to recruits under any circumstances"? The kid was committed for two days and they're still at the top of his list but they're just driving him towards us. I love it in this case but idiot Michigan fans have done this as well as we all know. So frustrating when its your fellow fans.
Just dont turn into Jordan Peyton.
That was quick.
