Sarasota (FL) Booker running back Marlon Mack was offered yesterday. He decommitted from UCLA. It seems like something could be brewing...
that is nice bonus change
YESTERDAY WAS A GOOD DAY, GOT OFFERED FROM MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY
Dont know how to embed but his twitter is @Marlon_Mack2
Looks like we were beat to him by another school
Losing Hecklinski to MU is a huge blow to our WR corps for the coming year. It sucks even more since it looks like he's trying to steal our recruits now.
Did I miss something?
Yaaarp. I see what he did there.
I thought Marquette stole Heck. :(((
Edit: Didn't get the joke. I fail at life.
Son of a bitch. You got me. +1
came back. read it again. ahha moment.
Well I heard he has Michigan University in his top three, along with the University of Louisiana State University, and The University of Ohio State.
is being forwarded to the Department of the Redundancy Department.
Someone needs to help him out here. Don't need anymore TP performances.
Or something like that.
HE TWEETS LIKE ME. I LIKE HIM.
Getting good vibes Magnus?
Well, the timing is obviously curious. He's never been to Michigan, so I wouldn't necessarily expect an immediate commitment...and if he did commit, I think it would be just as flimsy as his previous UCLA pledge.
So with Mack and Jones both being options at this point, is it just whichever of the two commit first to Michigan gets the spot?
Likely, and this also could be seen as a indication that things aren't looking well with Jones.
...but nothing ever happens.
Tuesday night, at the bible study...
UPVOTES FOR EVERY SUFJAN REFERENCE
a million times if not on droid app. Maybe my single favorite artist and honestly said your post in my head before knowing you'd use it after the title haha. Huge SS fan! I still think the pre-2006 osu game write up by Brian was good best work yet. Seven Swans. What the game meant for the team and considering the loss of Bo, etc. I shed a manly tear of anger and for all that is right. All united people, this time Wolverines. I remember saying, after reading, that the players should DIE on that field if necessary. Talk about getting pumped and going overboard.
He is coming to visit January 31st.
Just because Michigan offered Mack and he decommited from UCLA does not make him a lock, or even a heavy leaner. On his twitter account, he reitterates that he would still like to be recruited by UCLA (? yeah, i know), and he is on his way to Louisville now to take a visit there.
And a follow up question, any chance we take both and play Mack at another position? His defensive highlights were impressive.
I think that's a possibility. I wouldn't be too surprised if Michigan takes two more players before National Signing Day, whether it's Mack, Jones, McDowell, or someone else. Mack could end up playing safety or maybe even corner.
Which of the two running backs is a better fit for Coach Nuss and the offense he wants to run? Again thanks for the info.
Read on twitter that two players are leaving the team. Any insight at all?
no idea on the other one but it makes sense that it would be from a positon of depth like OL or DB.
I was actually just about to ask this question, but I did find Hudl highlights (HERE) of Mack playing safety and the highlights look pretty good. He seems very pretty effective there too.
As you would want from the safety position, he looks good in pass coverage and like a good tackler, so I could definitely see the interest if that's what Michigan wanted to do should he come here.
That doesnt sound like it is good for the chances of Michigan getting the commitment of Jeff Jones after all. I would guess that this happened because they didnt feel as good as they did before about Jones switching
To take the glass-half full approach, they could be offering both and letting them know the first one to commit gets the spot, because they need a RB.
My guess as well.
I WOULD LIKE TO SAY IM DECOMMITTED FROM UCLA YESTERDAY. I WOULD STILL LOVE TO VISIT UCLA AND RECRUITED BY THEM.

Well OK then. Sounds like a lock Michigan recruited by. Them.
I don't want a relationship with you Baby, but we can still sleep around, right?
Yeah, that always works.
does this mean the staff isn't too confident about jones? is this a "commitable" offer?
Sounds like he's planning an official visit, so they may have just said you have to visit before you can commit (which seems like a good caveat to add to the offer for both sides).
I'm not sure about Jones but it may be more of a sign that they definitely want a running back in this class possibly due to a transfer.
Great name. If he signs with us, expect a raft of "Return of the Mack" videos
Either they're not confident about Jones or maybe a current RB or two are planning on leaving the team.
Oh, sorry. 403 error. Access Denied.
Rumor is that Rawls wants to transfer to CMU
