Andrew Peterson. He's predictably blown up. You'd have to ask Tom, but I don't think we really have a shot with him anymore.
LA DB Floyd Raven to (officially) visit Michigan on 1/28
Thanks. That's too bad.
Not sure about our interest, but he has visited Texas A&M, Utah, and Arkansas.
Don't tease me.
I think its been 20 minutes...
was a clue.
But they can't take our Herschel Sims! Yes! 5* RB baby!
Can you please, please start limiting yourself when it comes to these pictures? Seriously, maybe you're like 13 and you think those are the height of wit and awesomeness, but even if that's the case it would be good practice for you to fit in with older folks. Someday, when you have a fake ID, that practice could come in handy.
William Wallce= Anthony WAllace? http://rivals.yahoo.com/michigan/football/recruiting/player-Anthony-Wall...
..But you're good. Too good for your own good.
No but seriously, yes, it's Anthony Wallace. Evidently he and "other texans' tried to get up here earlier in the season but it 'didnt work out'. It's nothing definitive, but the staff is trying to get him up here
Wallace would be great (to say the least). Odd that he and others couldn't "work it out' earlier. The Scout headline says "Barnett and Crew". Is Wallace the only "crew member" or are there potentially others?
They mentioned that there were others, but didn't name names.
I think Barnett is possible. But i think it will be hard to get Anthony Wallace from Oregon.
From the wording of the scout post, it sounded like he was interested in other schools but his dad rushed him. It can't be that hard to recruit him either; Arkansas's already got 2 other TE commits in the class, and he can get almost immediate playing time here. I think we have a great shot with Barnett.
It would be great to get Wallace since he plays for such a powerhouse. I'm pretty sure this is the same Skyline HS that produced Tony Drake and Corey Nelson and other 3/4 stars.
Thank you kind sir.
That's great to hear. I guess we will have no offensive skill players in this class except for Justice. Funny earlier in the year, all the complaints were where are the defensive recruits. Now, it may be close to all defensive.
If we get Fisher back, snare Bryant, keep Posada and Jack Miller, I'm OK with only Hayes and Flowers (assuming he comes) at the skill positions. Maybe Rawls.
Rawls has gotten much closer to qualifying. He might be visiting the 28th
I just remember the comments about where are the defensive recruits earlier that I think everyone was getting annoyed at. I just hope there is balance. I am a little worried about the offensive recruiting because we seem to have so many good recruiters for the defense. Borges doesn't seem like he is as good as Mattison or Coach Hoke. I have no idea on Funk and Lou's brother or Hecklinski. Freddie J is good.
I know it's still early. I get paid to be worried.
I'd like to see more.
Right now we only have Miller. I think we're in good shape to keep Posada and get Bryant. I actually don't think we're in great shape for Fisher but that could change.
So we need tackles. I know we've reached out to Flavin, but i wouldn't mind looking at a couple others. Especially with no lineman from last year as Pace might have suffered a major injury.
It's too bad about Fisher. Wallace might seem a stretch, but if we get Clark, we will have a lot of LB's. From the Borges interview, it seems like we have too many players in the offesive skill positions so they can go defensive. Worried about interior linemen, but there is a good crop next year.
Yep, being the only OL last year would really hurt us. Supposed to be the next great C
Also, did Hoke visit Darian Cooper in-home tonight? http://michigan.scout.com/
I thought Coach Hoke and maybe Mattison went to see Countess tonight, maybe swung by Coop's place.
Both MD boys... Barnes is a disappointing casualty of the coaching change. Down to PSU, UGA, and us, I read he dropped us after RR was fired. Hard to blame him - their coaches have been on him for months, he knows them. If Hoke can pull anything off with one in-home, he's yoda-level on the ninja meter.
EDIT: saw your maybes... hopefully Mattison was on the Countess visit, but I didn't think he was coming until tmw. Would make sense if he joined since he's out there, would have to think he makes an impression
I would be happy if we pulled Cooper in. I don't think Coach Hoke recruited him before, so just establishing the relationship and Cooper hasn't visited yet. Would be a miracle job to get someone with no prior contact with Hoke.
The only reason why I thought Mattison might meet Countess and Cooper was Sam Webb this morning said they wanted to interview Mattison but he was out recruiting and was unavailable for the interview.
I think it was today...they're going after Darian hard. Three things of note from the article.
1. We're not completely out of it.
2. He might visit the 28th.
3. The coaches (again) stated that we're reverting to a 4-3.
christ, how much did all of these recruits hate the 3-3-5? Zettel's high school coach, Jernigan, Mickey Johnson (unless I read that wrong somewhere), Barnes.
When recruiting's your lifeblood and your scheme is choking that, it's time to take another look at the scheme.
All these new recruits keep popping up. I hope that it is not too late and we are able to convince some of them to sign with us. I'm so excited about these next few weeks.
All these last-minute recruits are popping up like mushrooms!
Look at that offer list.
we've heard, but this is still very very good. But I still see recruiting panning out in a 2 or 3 yrs. Just like this past year, we recruited a good amount of defense, but you don't want all the young freshman having to start and play extensive time. We really need them to develop
prospect coming out of the woodwork.Brady Hoke and staff are doing a real good job at recuirting.GO BLUE!!!
I think we're recruiting him as a safety.
Would that make Raven a ballhawk ?
says he's 220 and that he's a LB>
He's also from skyline. Wasn't that where drake was from last year?
Skyline is a very good football school. But they're talking about Floyd Raven.
Sometimes it gets hard to follow the threads. Sometimes I wish there was a nesting option or even tree lines you could turn on or off.
And it's a damn shame drake didn't make it in. Would have been nice to have the depth and what seemed like he would have been a solid contributor.
Wouldn't it be nice to have Tony Drake right about now, too bad he didn't make it.
Love that he is visiting. Would be unreal at FS. Excellent closing speed. Also I am new to the blog, so I apologize for just a link and not the video on this comment, since I do not know how to do so yet. GO BLUE!!
I don't know about that 4.66.. Either everyone in that video runs a 5.0 or he's faster than advertised. Whatever it is that man is aggressive and can tackle. Sign him up.
How to embed videos:
1. Find the video you want. Then under the video, next to "like", "add to" and "share", there is an embed option. Click it.
2. Copy the embed code.
3. Switch to plain text editor (Under the comment box on this site)
4. Paste code to comment box and then switch back to the other text editor.
If this doesn't help or was confusing, I am sure someone else will help you.
Great News. Hope we get him. Hoping for a quality DT. Make things look ok for defense as far as the class goes.
I believe we're still "in" on Tim Jernigan. Question for anyone to answer: Is Hoke or any of the coaches "pursuing" Darian Cooper? Wasn't he "high" on us not too long ago?
