It was a brief, but torrid affair.
Awesome. But someone remind me - did we want him anyway? I was told we didn't but that may have changed now that we can have him again.
Quick! Urban needs a paramedic!!!
For those who follow recruiting closer than I do (Magnus?): how good is this kid, where is is ranked and how does he compare to other targets that we have at the position?
Always great to steal one from OSU, but just curious if the excitement is more about that or this kid's potential?
He talked to Webb and he's next
Nice thought, but unfortunately Webb seems done. Westphal and Jackson will help to soften the blow.
Westphal and Noisewater?
We decide OHIO is Ohio University?
Serious question, does he have an offer from Michigan or is he still waiting for one?
If I wasn't on my phone I would direct you to lmgtfy.com which would then take you to michigan.rivals.com which would tell you that he does in fact have an offer from the University of Michigan...but I'm on my phone.
Funny, I was on my phone when I posed that question....oh well.
I would throw a tweet out there to Tom VH or whoever would listen and announce that I committed to tsio or Notre Dame or whatever, just so that Michigan would take notice! that would be the best marketing of all time, especially before the star rankings come out! At the very least it would be mentioned on this board and get a couple hundred posts!
Based on the timing, I think it has to be assumed this had something to do with the turtle story and its subsequent denial. Either the story disturbed him, or once it was debunked, it ruined the school's mystique. The lesson to take from this is that telling stories about legendary coaches exposing their genitals to reptiles rarely--if ever--pays off when it comes to recruiting.
Not to sound negative, but do we really need this kid? Obviously you don't want to see top in state kids go to Ohio or State, but this is going to already be a strong year for us for DLine. We have already secured a commitment from Mone. We will most likely be in the top group of Mcdowell and Hand. I'd almost rather see us throw an offer out to Gelen Robinson. Rivals has already listed G Rob as a 4 star, while Marshall doesn't have a rating yet. I don't think we really have room in this class to take more than 3 D-lineman overall.
PROTIP: Always assume the coaches know more than you do. Particularly when they've absolutely seen these guys play/work more than you have.
PROTIP: I know everything, you should know that by now.
But seriously, Rivals had an article that Michigan stopped in to see Gelen and interest has increased between the two. PERSONALLY, I'd rather see us get him than Marshall because he can be a hybrid LB/DE.
Local kid with good talent at a position where we don't have a designated star and rotate a lot. Yes, it's better to get him than not get him.
for Webb to return to the fold.
Never heard of that school.
He decommitted becuz he found out that Meyer was lying about Hole leaving for the NFL.
I am yet again reminded to the genius of the Onion.
Rivals? They have 1 midwest analyst (had zero for about a year) and about 17 southeast analysts. They are biased in rankings.
247 has Marshall at #246 overall, #14 sde, #6 in the state of Michigan.
Looking at the kid, he is physically developed, very athletic. This is a kid Michigan definitely wants.
Losing Webb and Marshall to OSU sucked bad. Very glad they lost Marshall. Webb may be the top player in the state (i personally think he is #2, and VERY close to MdDowell for the #1 spot) so i hope Michigan can flip him. He may be the best prospect to come out of Cass Tech in recent years.
Sorry but I have to respond to your post....
We haven't lost any of the three just quite yet... and lets not forget, having guys commit to us prematurely only to lose them over the next 12 months... early committments are sometimes a disadvantage... look what happened with Conley... look what happened even with Ward.
Webb we probably won't get, but when it gets into next fall, they may want to stay close to home... the summer before I enrolled at Michigan, it wasn't real until the few days prior, when I was getting butterflies and cold feet.
Some people like to pretend we don't want him when we don't have him. We want him. I do think we have offers out to better DEs, but he's a talent and we want him.
I'm not sure what you're expecting to hear. You're an ohio fan so you obviously know all about delusional fans and pretending to win recruiting battles. And also pretending to win games with intelligible players and cheating coaches.
Sorry. I tried to stop but couldn't.
