ALL OF THEM
Mason Cole, Artavis Scott, and George Campbell to visit Michigan on Feb. 24
here is to hoping it is unseasonably warm that weekend
Commits come in pairs. Hopefully this Feb. treats us as kind as last year.
Trios are the new pairs.
My recruiting knowledge isn't what it once was. Could someone give a brief rundown on them?
Mason Cole - 4* 2014 OT
Artavis Scott - 4* 2014 WR (high 90s in Rivals Top 100 today)
George Campbell - (Probable) 5* 2015 WR
Cole and Scott have said they want to be a package deal, both have visited previously. Cole has expressed the most interest out of the three. All go to the same high school in Tampa.
Perfect, thanks for the insight!
Wow, I didn't realize they had both already been up. Good sign to have two visits before junior year is over (ignore that kid shuffling 100s down in Mississippi).
Cole and Scott actually came up for BBQ last year and the MSU game. All three went to an Outback bowl practice
Getting him on campus this early is really good for Michigan. Kid ran a 4.44 laser timed 40 at the UA Combine in St. Pete. As a sophomore. Which given all of the FAKE 40 times out there doesn't sound to impressive, until you realize that in 2012, out of the 16,000+ kids that ran a laser timed 40 at a Nike Combine, only 19 ran one under 4.5, and only 3 ran one under 4.4
4.4 speed on the field. He absolutely runs away from the competition and his Tampa league has a lot of quick kids.
I think he is the #1 target for UM and maybe everyone. Randy Moss II.
If Cole and Scott want to be a package deal, it's looking like it will come down to Michigan and Notre Dame since those are the only two schools in good position for both.
Good deal, would be a nice trio to land!
I would love to have all 3 but would that hurt our chances with Drake Harris? Scott and Campbell would be WRs I believe?
X, Y, and Z. All 3 are different types of receivers, if we are lucky enough to land them they shouldn't really overlap.
Edit: Campbell's a 2015 guy, which I guess neither of us noticed at first, lol.
And they're from SEC country which means flippity-filp-flip-flipping shenangians will be ongoing.
Still glad the staff is reaching out and making inroads in Florida. Heck if we get just one of them it's a good sign for the future.
You're right. And if Ole Miss gets into the mix it's all over.
I don't think it will hurt our chances. George Campbell is a 2015 prospect just fyi.
I think people normally overplay the effect competition supposedly has on kids. When a recruiting site and tens of coaches across the country tell the kid that they're the sweetest thing since sliced bread, they believe them.
At that point, they become significantly less concerned about the other dudes, assuming that they are the sliced bread their talents have replaced.
Or something like that.
But seriously, kids' egos normally get in the way of worrying about other highly touted players.
Has the fear of competion stopped Saban from getting every elite player? Top players know if they go to a big time university, there will always be other top players there. That's just the deal of going to a top team.
Would love all 3 in this class.
Campbell is class of 2015, but I'll gladly take him for that class.
Why do these high schools force players to stay all four years?!?
A two-fer sure would liven this place up! C'mon down Mr. Cole and Mr. Scott!
Do we know whether they're just visiting us or we're one stop on a bigger tour of schools?
George Campbell is a 2015 guy so I doubt it would affect Drake Harris much. Artavis scott is a 2014 guy and he might give Harris a little compeition, but I doubt Harris cares that much about competition when he's considering Alabama and Ohio as well.
6'5" and 198lbs as a high school sophmore, with legit 4.4 speed. That is just unreal to be that big and that fast as a 15 year old.
The next Calvin Johnson?
Mason Cole is a 4 star OL from Florida. Artavis scott is a 4 star WR from Florida, and George Campbell is a 2015 WR from Florida.
I believe that Mason Cole has stated that he wants to make his decision by Spring.
So he has 5 weeks left.
A Groundhog in PA
Sunday the 24th, MBB is at home against Illinois. Let's hope these three young gentlemen enjoy themselves and come away with a new-found appreciation for The University of Michigan.
It also helps that Ferns and Speight are supposed to also be in for a visit that weekend. Time to get to some crootin, boys.
From what I've heard, I don't think there is a chance any of them commit then. Cole *might* but I think he wants to take more time and visits, while ND probably leads for Scott and Campbell is a 2015 guy.
wtf is wrong with the people on this board that this post got downvoted? i mean, ridiculous. absolutely ridiculous.
There's no source...
yeah, but if it was a positive post with no source it would not have been downvoted.
While that may be true, his original post is just rumor spreading at its finest. "I've heard this"
They are visiting for the Illinois bball game that day. I believe it's just a one stop trip.
Also, the validity of these rumors may not be so good...Steve (Tremendous, now 247) posted on the Michigan247 board that Cole isn't sure if he will visit or not.
He actually said none of the Florida kids have confirmed.
Well, doesn't that just blow? You had me all excited for nothing.
I'm not sure about this Coach Brown character.
Yes, that post came after his first one.
You're wrong, when rumors are pro-michigan the validity is good. When rumors are anti-michigan they are anything but. Why do I always have to explain this? It makes so much sense!
...for one high school football team.
Regardless of whether both commit next week if they visit, you'd have to think that we're in good shape with them.
I'd put money the next commit is Doles
You're really going out on a limb there, aren't you?
Could have said Mone...
And why are we listening to him?
Apparently the new kid in recruiting bloggers. His M Block has picked up steam after Steve joined 247. Blog states he's a receivers coach in high school. Using "Coach" is still a misrepresentation when talking to recruits.
(Edit and correction of previous post after double checking his blog).
I could get McDonald's breakfast tomorrow, but I can not confirm if I will wake up in time to do so.
Now I have to get McDonald's breakfast tomorrow. Thanks a lot... for making my life awesome.
Only 3? How are we supposed to have 6 commits on a February weekend again?
This is the definition of bad reporting. He got this information from Speight, not the recruits themselves. At the very least confirm it before it is reported. Cole is saying it's possible, but nothing has been booked or scheduled yet.
My birthday is feb 24th and ill be 33...three recruits....sounds like hoke and company are hooking me up? go blue
I believe the correct term is Hoking you up.
I hope we get all of them, but I would be most excited if we got Campbell for '15. He just looks like he is playing a different game than everyone else on film.
I wouldn't be looking too much into a commitment the weekend they visit. While Cole has expressed the most interest, it's still early in their recruitment. Cole and Scott obviously like Michigan, but are from a long way away. The commit-a-palooza last year was from mostly Detroit and Midwestern guys if I remember correctly. Could be one or two exceptions to that. Highly unlikely Michigan lands one or both of the package deal this early-which is not to say they don't have a good shot at ultimately landing one or maybe both of them. Campbell is another guy I'm excited about, but I think the coaches would be hesitant to take his committment so early. Even if he did, it's a LONG way to go until 2015 signing day.
