I am starting to have major flashbacks to the Josh Garnett decision. If he comes out with two shirts, one saying "Michigan Football" and the other saying "FSU Criminal Justice" we're screwed.
i refuse to even consider this a possibility
I am starting to have major flashbacks to the Josh Garnett decision. If he comes out with two shirts, one saying "Michigan Football" and the other saying "FSU Criminal Justice" we're screwed.
follow FSU Criminal Justice on Twitter?
Do we know why he wants to major in criminal justice? Not to beat the law school thread to death, but a criminal justice undergrad major is one of the least desirable majors when applying to law school (unless you place in the top of your class). At least as far as many law school admissions offices are concerned. I'd be interested to hear what his career aspirations are . . .
I think he said some sort of law enforcement with a focus on the internet.
He wants to be an MGoBlog mod?
Good thing he's on scholarship because being a mod doesn't pay much (read: anything).
According to the article.
He could be setting a new precedent as an E.J. Levenberry. As in a guy that everyone thought was going to commit elsewhere during his announcement, but he ended up blue. I can see it now......
"I thought for sure Da'Shawn Hand was going to Alabama, but I'm so happy he gave his verbal to Michigan today! He's this year's E.J. Levenberry!"
Would rather play football at Michigan, but FSU isn't a bad #2
Wants to major in Crim Justice and Michigan doesn't even have the major.
I think he's a Nole...but he'll "always be a Michigan fan and root for the Wolverines."
but its still my response any time asks me for a "prediction" on anything. Well played.
I'm with you. Fortunately even if EJ chooses FSU we will still have likely the best two year LB haul in the country.
plus we have an incredibly young LB corp playing right now! 2/3rds of last years starters have 3 years of eligiblity left!
With a group of young LB's and some real top talent coming in regardless of Levenberry's decision in the next two classes- I am not too worried if he goes to FSU. Especially since they are not a rival or on schedule, and because we have the talent should be ok no matter what.
Sure I'd love to get him- but given our LB situation I feel like he would be the icing on top of the cake.
If anything if he decides to go to FSU and Anzalone becomes a top player at Ohio and would have turned blue- that would be the bigger impact- although it seemed like coaching staff was set at LB except for Levenberry having a saved spot...
Alabama's 2 year LB Haul makes ours look like garbage.... and I still think ours is really good..
We'll see where our LB's are in 3-4 years compared to theirs, then make a judgement. I believe in Hoke and Mattison's ability to turn guys into defensive studs.
And you don't believe in Saban's ability to turn guys into defensive studs?
Rolando McClain, Donta Hightower and Courtney Upshaw just didn't develop at all...
I love Hoke and Mattison, but come on.

Let me know if any of the info is wrong- may have typed wrong (and couldn't find info for Kellen Jones on two sites)...
3pm EST. Make sure to check the 2nd page of the board at that time to come back to this thread.
Which means there is 4 hours and 40 minutes to worry about this, which is 4 hours and 39 minutes too long! Remember people, we have a great class coming in this year and next, keep away from the ledge if this doesn't go our way.
On the otherhand, let's go Levenberry, make the right choice! GO BLUE
FSU. Hope I'm wrong.
My prediction: Levenberry in 6 games. His starting pitching is too much and the home field advantage will decide the series in Levenberry's favor.
Is it a 2-2-2-1 or 2-3-2 format? Also, will there be the mosquito outbreak that derailed the Yankees a few years ago? If so, I think it will be a 6th round knockout or will end in a shoot out with a knuckle puck from the blue line sealing the victory for Wilkes-Barre.
Seriously! Your man card is gone. Whoever is the hottest and swallows will get picked..... On to football, we get this kid.
if we dont get him we did a poor job of pitching our academics... IMO
Not if he's looking for criminal justice. You can't pitch what you don't offer. I think he's FSU bound but I hope I'm wrong in my guess.
It's offered as a minor here at least, just not a full major.
That's a good point, and as Genzilla says below, there's no one path to a criminal justice job. Hopefully Levenberry agrees, but if not than good luck to him at FSU.
Or he just chose the school with his major? UM has great academics, but to think they every person should choose UM over any other school regardless of their situation is ignorant.
Michigan has a reputation for being arrogant.
you read his statement wrong.
Responding from my Droid. I think I am responding to posts that are not visible here, because I was not responding to that post...some things I see on my phone but they don't show up on my computer or iPad. Sorry..
He chose FSU over UM...played at an AA-level (third team if I recall correctly) and got a Rhodes Scholarship as well.
I'm at a small liberal arts college that also doesn't offer a criminal justice major. I know several people that have taken a combination of Political Science (Admin, Policy, and law)/Social Work/ and Sociology and even some Econ in order to create their own sort of quasi CJ degree and they're doing just fine (One of my friends, who did a Chem major is graduating in May and he already has a police job lined up).
Considering UM has top programs in all the social sciences, and that more than anything, law enforcement departments are looking for intelligent, disciplined and hard-working individuals more than a specific degree, EJ would have no problem taking this route at UM. Any admissions counselor with half a brain (I work in admissions at my school as well) could lay this out for him and show him that it really makes no difference in the long run if he does a CJ degree or if he does an interdisciplinary Social Sciences program focusing on issues of criminal justice.
...if he chose Michigan, of course, but consider that we are still looking at three four-star LBs and one three-star for 2012 and two four-stars ( three, if Levenberry commits here) for 2013. Either way, it is a pretty good LB haul for two years. Still, another four-star LB never hurts.
I hate to say it but I think it's FSU!
Just wondering, does Michigan offer anything that is equivalent to a Criminal Justice major? I'd imagine being Pre-Law would serve one well, especially if he hoped to move up the police ladder someday and a Michigan degree certainly wouldn't hurt either. I wouldn't think that when hiring, having a Criminal Justice major would be all that important if one could prove he was a capable and intelligent officer, since I'd imagine police academies/trainings would basically cover the same things. .
Just looking for some insight.
As stated in a post above you could get a degree through taking PolSci, social work, econ, psych, sociology courses which would be similar to a CJ degree (maybe better). Getting the CJ major itself versus an interdisciplnary social sciences degree from U of M would not make him better prepared for work in his field at all. However, maybe he is more interested in the CJ specific classes, and would rather spend his time taking those classes than those that would be offered in a quasi-CJ program put together at U of M. I could understand that.
Vada Murray was an A2 police officer after getting out of school. I'm sure that there are ways it can be done.
When I came to college I was SURE, that physics was the thing for me. After changing my mind more times than Jordan Payton, I am sitting here in the FXB a minute before the last aerospace exam I have to take, ever!
But that's not even a major change.
I picked colleges knowing for SURE that I wanted a chemistry degree. I started out as a chem major at UM, then decided to apply to the b-school, then changed to LSA-Econ, before finally getting a degree in sociology. I went from one end of the spectrum to the other.
Point is, EJ might want to major in criminal justice now, but a year from now he might be pre-med. You never know.
The FXB first floor bathroom is hands down the best on North Campus. Atleast it was in my day. I used to really look forward to leisurely post-lecture/discussion dumps in the last stall. This was especially true on Thursday afternoons because that meant I could not only read the Daily, but the weekend guide insert (can't remember what it was called) as well. My foot was always asleep by the time I was "wrapping up."
Maize and blue just looks right on him.
If EJ goes to FSU, you must remove all pics of him wearing that jersey. I will HULK OUT if he goes to FSU and this pic is still around.
She should fund the criminology major...she's really undermining recruiting
Maybe the University should kill the computer science department to make room for a criminal ustice department
I'm getting that puke taste in my mouth just reading this. I need TUMS...
As others have kind of said, we could really use EJ's talent, but not necessarily at this position. If we get him, GREAT, if not then I will start getting excited about who else we can go after with his schollie. He's a great player, but not a "can't miss" right now.
But I really hope I'm wrong!!
Wow, a pessimistic bunch. Unfortunately, I'm with you. FSU by a nose. We're in good shape either way, though.
Nobody knows what you're talking about. We don't watch the Bachelor. I've never seen it. Seriously I've never seen it. Your reference makes no sense to me because I've never watched the Bachelor, and it certainly would make people think lesser of me were I ever to admit I watched the Bachelor -- which I do not.
Methinks thou dost protest too much.
Is this because you ARE "The Bachelor"?
The show is loosely based on his life.
Gets to jet around the world with the hottest, most shallow woman he chooses, and can switch it up the next day?
Oh, and he is a Michigan fan too?
I predict that this is the first of many Levenberry threads today.
and they're saying UFM cooled on Levenberry, so Ohio State was a non-committable offer.
I don't think there was enough mutual interest there for there to even be speculations about who could've "cooled" on whom. He never visited, to anyone's knowlede never talked to OSU very much, and just didn't didn't show much interest. In the same respect, he likely got a verbal offer because he's a top prospect at his position, and the staff wanted to see if any interest built. Our staff, like yours, knows better than to waste efforts putting the press on a player who isn't interested. See: Robert Foster.
Apparently both staffs weren't so much wary of wasting time with Robert Foster as they were noping their way out of town.
Seminoles, just because he doesn't really hold a "committable offer" from Michigan.
Who is your source? Don't spread BS.
/s means "straight from the top"
Boom Urban Meyer'd
Even though he loved his time in AA, he is going to choose FSU because of the major. Bring on Poggi!!!
At this point I only want him to choose Michigan so that Farrell is wrong. He's been saying all along that Levenberry is going to FSU when I don't think Levenberry even knew where he was going, and I don't want him to be right for a lucky guess.
B-b-bu-b-bu-but he's the "Godfather of recruiting." He's such a kind and humble man!
Fuck you are right. His comments in the article say it all. He's a Seminol.
I don't think those comments are revealing at all. I'm not saying he'll choose Michigan, but you can find whatever you want in those comments, whether you're optimistic or pessimistic.
Florida State and here's why: in the past year, when we've had a day like this - recruit choosing between Michigan and one or two other schools - the recruit inevitably picks the other school. If there's someone I'm missing who picked Michigan under these circumstances, speak up. It's karma.
Maybe Jarrod Wilson?
OK, so there goes my theory.
OK, so there goes my theory.
And maybe your double post virginity?
Edit: Denard Robinson..?
Chris Bryant, Demar Dorsey...
Jarrod Wilson comes to mind. I doubt he was the only one.
It was said before and I'll say it again Levenberry is pure luxury at this point. If we don't get him I won't be discouraged at all. We have great depth at linebacker, yes maybewe could use one more to sure up the strong side, but we will be fine. I would love to pull this kid though he is a great talent. We could use another blocking tightend I think if we don't get him that position is pretty shaky right now.
If Levenberry chooses FSU like many of us feel he will, is it everyones opinion that we are done at LB or does Michael Hutchings still have a committable offer? He expressed early interest in UM due to early contact with Hoke, and since Mathis has been hyping us, he seems to have renewed his interest. While I think it is an extreme longshot, the door for another LB may still be slightly open.
That is a good question, but I think in a way we are done with linebacker if we don't get levenberry but we still would take a Hutchings or a Kalambayi in the same way we would take levenberry. Like i said above another linebacker at this point is a luxury
My reaction if he chooses FSU:
Do crabs claws grow back? Or is this crab just a boss?
I thought Hoke and Co. paid a visit to his school yesterday.
I predict a long 4 hour thread with a site crash at the end. Would love to have him go Blue but if not best of luck to E.J.
If Hoke really wanted him, he'd be blue. /bucknuts
I think Levenberry would be a nice get, but with our depth at LB in these classes, he doesn't feel huge to me.
My gut says this is a Garnett all over again.
In the event we don't get him, that gives us a "hit glass in case of emergency" scholly doesnt it? who can the coaches go after instead?
I've got a poll up at Touch The Banner, and so far 73% think he'll choose Michigan, 25% think FSU, and 1% think Oklahoma.
Much more optimistic over there than here. Except for the handful of confused voters who think that Oklahoma is a vaible option.
and I'll raise you one
you engineers, always gotta be whiping put your particle colliders.
Yup, not impressed. Now give me a Levenberry collector or something like that and I will be happy, particle collider...not so much.
Everyone keeps talking about depth at LB, but I think that EJ's ability to play the SAM is a big deal. Sure, McCray will probably be slotted at the SAM, but there is the chance that he outgrows the position and slides to DE or a hybrid role. This could leave a big hole, as many of our recently recruited LB's are more WILL or MIKE LB's. I think Levenberry's ability to play both the SAM and MIKE would be a nice luxury to have and would truly strengthen the overall depth of the LB's as a whole.
Jake Ryan - RS Soph
Cam Gordon - RS Junior
I thought RJS was coming in as a SAM, and as you say, we have McCray. 4 deep with quality talent is pretty good in '13, relative to the last several years. Ojemudia is an option as well, though he's coming in as a WDE.
Besides, in a pinch I think we could move Beyer back or Bolden out there and be just fine.
But, But Farrell said he's going to FSU, he knows better than that 73%
Well, those are mostly Michigan fans visiting Touch the Banner, so the poll results have to be taken with a grain of salt...
I thought I read UM coaches visited his high school yesterday?
FSU and Michigan visited his school yesterday.
Maybe Hoke pulled a Saban and said the offer only stood if he committed right then. /s obviously
after his comment about the alleged lack of enthusiasm of northern school fan bases.
If you read Farrell's article on Rivals, you can see he favors FSU. Levenberry starts his pro's on FSU with his Crimonalogy Program he wants to major in. His words:
"It will come down to getting a degree first, playing for a conference title and playing for a national title."
Over/Under: 200 posts in this thread come 4 pm.
I'll take the over. we are crazy people. plus I can post a bunch to win the bet.
I think we'll be at 200 in the next hour...Definitely the over!
I'll take over. We have 2 and a half hours before he even announces.
Plus you can plan all of the well wishers posting their respective last tearful goodbyes wishing him good luck or when he chooses UofM random posts that will resemble......
I KNEW IT ALL ALONG MIKE FARRELL, YOU'RE JUST A FUCKING HATER!!!! YOU SUCK!!!!
COACH HOKE POINTED AT HIM AND HE KNEW THAT HE WAS BLUE!!!!!!!
Arkansas. The lure of John L Smith will be too much for EJ to turn down.
I'm with Farnn on this one. Seeing Farrell miss on this would be an added bonus to pulling in Levenberry. I'm pretty sure he even said FSU was Levenberry's leader a month ago and E.J. corrected him on it. Let's hope he's wrong again.
About three year's ago who would've thought that we would be talking about someone of Levenberry talents as just a luxury?
Damn, I don't miss 2008-2010!
A few weeks ago I would have been really disappointed if he picked FSU. Now it appears that instead of being a borderline 5*, he's likely a generic 4*, it won't sting as much if he heads south.
Like other people said, we have good depth at LB and we'll likely land two or three more studs in 2014.
psychology I'm seeing here today. We all thought Garnett was a lock - now most are thinking FSU for EJ. The only logical conclusion one can draw from these two totally unrelated situations is that EJ will choose Michigan. The choice is clear.
I hate the bachelor. Grrr.
He has been FSU since day one. I expect no change today.
It would be awesome if he commits today. However if he doesn't commit best of luck to him, but 2012 and 2013 recruiting classes so far still have me jackin' it in San Diego.
i understand no one wants to get there hopes up, but Levenberry is a need to me yes we are going to have 2 nice years of LB hauls but look before that we had no depth and you can never have to many LBs. I think Mattison wants to eventually have a rotation system, like Bama or Lsu they have highly rated guys sitting the bench and seeing little action example Saint-Dix, Depriest, so theres not much dropoff on rotation plus you give these guys times to be college ready and understand the system instead of forced into freshman action. I want to get to the point where most of our freshman redshirt and because there not needed right away. Also if every highly rated recruit panned out FSU and Texas would win championships every year and there not even close IMO.
That's still not the definition of "need." We have 11 linebackers scheduled to be on the roster for 2013. Levenberry would give us 12. You can't go 4-deep at every single position. If you did, you'd have 88 scholarship players plus specialists.
To add on to that- many of our linebackers have positional flexibility between either MLB and WLB or SLB/WDE so you can go 4 deep without needing 12 players.
Despite my mini-tirade yesterday on the Bosa "good luck' thing - I do think it's acceptable for members of this board to wish EJ good luck even if he doesn't chose Michigan today under the pretense that, based on my calculations - there is only a 1.73% chance of Michigan playing FSU in the next 4/5 years. That, and his dad said we're probably going to win a NC in the next 4 years.
I won't rehash the things that may or may not be negative about Bosa, since most of those tend to be based on a) his sweet picture on Twitter/Rivals and b) a couple of tweets...
But Levenberry and his family have been nothing but respectful and complementary to UM during this whole process. He deserves good thoughts regardless of his decision...
I have a sneaking suspicion that EJ will go FSU, and many of our other top targets will choose other schools other than Michigan. It feels like this happened last year, too. We came hot out of the gate and secured a great class, but kind of limped towards the finish line and lost out on some elite talent and playmakers.
Feels like we are setup for the same thing again this year. Don't get me wrong - I am still thrilled with both '12 and '13 classes and I am expecting big things from these guys - but it would be awesome to cap off the recruiting season by actually securing some of the elite guys that wait until later in the process.
It's like a really good movie that starts with an awesome action scene at the very beginning, but is basically drama and dialogue throughout the rest of the film. It starts out really strong, and kind of tails off from there, but overall still a good flick due to that great beginning scene.
Can't think of a good example right now, but you get my drift.
Thanks for proving his point!
He predicted YOU would get negged. You didn't. He made no predictions about whether HE would be negged.
As evidenced by the "trolling" label this post has received.
You can disagree without being disagreeable. Rational, well-articulated arguments are rarely negged, regardless of how un-rosy the opinion.
He who says "I worry about our interior defense. We lost too much production and leadership with Martin and RVB, and Big Will still hasn't shown he can be the answer in the middle" will invoke a discussion, but won't usually be negged.
He who says, "BWC is a bust, and our D-Line is gonna suck cause all teh good players left. Thanks a bunch, RichRod" will be negged.
That negs do basically nothing. They don't affect your point totals, and they only affect your 'karma' if you pile up a bunch of them, and even then, karma doesn't really do much. Voting mostly serves as an easy way to gauge public opinion on your post.
Self-fulfilling prophecies fulfill themselves selfishly.
I actually got negged, too. I went from a 2 to a 1 when he was negged, and just recently back to a 2 again. Good times.
There is a guy who negs PGB on sight. But while individual posters may vote you down purely because they disagree, Almost all of the people around here are pretty reasonable.
Okay, MOST of the people around here are pretty reasonable.
Would you believe MANY of the people around here are kinda reasonable?
Final offer: Some of us aren't total pains in the ass?
Haha, thanks for bringing some light-heartedness to the situation!
My threads are constantly greyed out. It hurts my feelings. I am a good person, dammit! Maybe I need an MGoMakeover. I wonder if it costs as much as my wife's real makeovers . . . If so, I'm f-cked.
It is April. We have not even entered the gate, let alone the finish line.
Actually, since we are about 80 percent full for this class, WE ARE at the finish line. Maybe not in actual time, but for what we can do as far as rounding out this recruiting class, we are almost done. So it is imperative that we finish strong and close on some of these gamechangers (Isaac, Treadwell, Poggi, et al). I realize there is a lot of time left and anything can happen, but we put ourselves in a corner with our hot start.
Again - I am not criticizing the coaching staff. I am ALL IN 100 percent. I am f--king pumped for Michigan football under this regime and with these players.
But you cannot ignore the fact that we did not finish strongly in 2012, and we are set up to do the same again for 2013.
i hear you but i think out of those 12 maybe 6 or 7 get action, but i trust the coaches they know something we dont for them to turn down all these other guys for him i dont see why all signs dont point to michigan, plus he was going to commit at a all star game but now he moves up his date when FSU has 20 spots left.
FSU supposedly only has one linebacker spot open.
Of the linebacker crew, we already know that Ryan, Gordon, Morgan, and Bolden will see playing time by 2013. Then toss in Poole, Ross, Jenkins-Stone, Ringer, Jones, Gedeon, and McCray... I think more than 6-7 of those guys are going to play at some point.
fsu is bringing in 4....they want Matthew Thomas (miami-fl) more than any other backer
...do you have a prediction on which way he'll announce?? Thanks!
(Since we're playing the "where will he go" game and I have no insight, I'd thought I'd see if you've any new insight/thoughts on his decision.)
I have no inside information, but all the talk from his dad about the major makes me think that's weighing heavily on the decision. I think he'll pick FSU but I'm not 100% convinced. I think we'll be just fine at linebacker, so I won't be too disappointed, but I would still be pleased if he picked Michigan.
What were your odds when Garnett was making his decision?
Eh, I thought it was pretty much 50/50 between us and Stanford. However, 83% of voters at TTB said Garnett would pick Michigan, so my readers are clearly homers.
He's going to FSU.
- They have the criminal justice major.
- They've been recruiting him since he was a freshman.
- He spent a week there on a visit. A week.
- His dad likes them better.
I'd be really surprised if he picks M. Thrilled, but truly surprised.
Why does it seem as if M cleans up except when it comes down to the final 2? During the season past it came down to Garnett (Stanford), Reeves (Ohio), and Kozan (Clemson -- Iowa wasn't really a factor once he de-commited). Previously, Dee Hart initially picked us over Bama, then bolted to the Tide. And now, if Leavenberry chooses FSU...
And Kozan will be continuing his spirit journey at Auburn. And to answer your question, it's because you touch yourself at night.
I knew it! The pastor was right.
Probably because you're looking at things pessimistically. And Kozan chose Auburn, not Clemson.
Gut feeling: he picks FSU because they offer his major, but at the same time, the academics there are absolute garbage by comparison to ours. FSU is a school defined by its football program, not the other way around.
If he wants to prepare for life after football, he's got a better option to go here. But, my pick for him is FSU. Fortunately, its not exactly a position of need right now.
I"m going down swinging, i say Michigan.
Hoke's gonna get this one.
That is all..just like your attitude.
I’m going with this.
He channels his inner Kozan and embarks on a peyote induced vision quest. He sees a Wolverine riding on the back of a motorcycle driven by a Semonile and decides to go to Arkansas.
Okay, this is crazy talk but so is 200+ replies about a recruit.
I just heard tha band is going to Dallas. Can anyone confirm this?
Is a good player. Nice pickup for the cowboys. Wonder what position he will play
his name is spelled tha band. Is this really that hard?
I've changed mine 3 times at Michigan
I hate the tomahawk chop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I do like the cowgirls.
to the "it's not you, it's me" break up line...but I had the same thought.
Apparently Michigan and FSU also paid a visit to Da'Shawn Hand ('14 DE/DT) during the same trip to see Levenberry. If you don't know about Da'Shawn yet, you will soon, he's projected to be the #1 overall in the 2014 class. Michigan is getting 2 birds w/ 1 stone or 2 five-stars w/ 1 flight!!
Levenberry going BLUE in 40 minutes! Count down!!
But expectations are also tempered. My gut tells me he's verballing to FSU because of the lack of a CJ major. Stranger things have happened.
Going Blue in 33 minutes!! No one wants to major in criminal justice. I'll mail him all my crim pro and crim law books and a couple decent outlines and he'll learn in 2 hours what he can learn in 4 years at FSU.
But I might end up at grad school at FSU so I guess it's a win-win. Before anyone asks, Michigan will always be top dog with me no matter what.
Does anyone have a link to video of his announcement? ESPN3 might carry it, but it's blocked at my work.
I don't think there is a video. We're going to have to wait on one of the 4 recruiting sites to break it.
14 minutes and counting!
(be still my beating heart!)
Twitter is as fast as your going to get an announcement. Ace is on it, follow him.
@kristenkenney is at Woodbridge High
Ohhhhh oh ohhhhh ohhhhh ohh ohhh
That means nothing to me.
F5 Key, don't fail me now!
have a football team?
I'll bet he has a "Hello" post ready, though from weeks ago. That idea is about to be tested shortly.
Follow @kristenkenney - she is there at Woodbridge HS right now. She will tweet the announcement!
Its FSU... damn
Born and raised in the great state of Michigan and love anything connected to the university but you younger fans are sick in the head.
and hats are on the table
He's B1G, he went to PSU not FSU
might be good for michigan!!!
I just can't believe he's making an announcement to tell everyone he's going to UM. I wish I were wrong but it seems they never pick UM when there's an announcement or hat game. It just seems when they just say it then UM wins, but when its announced or a hat game we just can't seem to win. I think if they used helmuts we would win every time.
He picked FSU.
I can't stand the suspense!
I can understand why you got negged for this.... but really.... there's a trend developing. Just seems like when there's a big time recruit we have a 50/50 shot with, we always lose.
Per Kristen Kenny.
On to the next one. C'mon Poggi!
those guys from that Michigan recruiting facebook group are saying he committed to FSU in the high school bathroom???
Blast you FSU!
On to Tye Eyezack!
It is Ispaac. The "P" is silent.
He doesn't even know how to single post.
Tie Ice sack or Ty I's sick?
Poggi time, TEAM 134!!!
also, addicted to drugs
From the kid from PA. Now he is a bucknut. Oh well let's take two more WR. We are loaded at LB anyway.
It would've been great, but it leaves a spot open for a different great recruit to add to this already stellar 2013 class.
Sexual Harrassment Panda would have been studied really well by EJ if they had his major at the UofM
Good luck E.J. Hope the sunshine state treats ya well
Meh, does this suck? Yeah, but its not like we need him. We've got Mike McCray, Ben Gedeon, and some fucking studs coming in the fall. We may want one more LB in the class, but Levenberry is not a must-have.
It would have been nice, but this just means there is room for another talented WR or DL.
Does this mean that we cant eat a garnett and gold cake shaped like Florida?
I'm waiting to see I Only Post in GIFs reaction to the news . . .
14 in-state lb'ing holds some GEMS!!
Hope nuthin but the BEST for this kid. I'm for one will be cheering for EJ...even if he goes Noles,can't hate on a nice kid from a good family.
