Did you have the chance to study film at a prestigious institution in LA? I consider myself a pretty large music fan and if I were inclined to be skilled at producing music I think given the opportunity I would like to study music in a richly diverse musical setting. That's not saying you can shake too many fists at Detriot though and it isn't too far.
Michigan In Top 3 for Leon McQuay III
No, he studied film at a prestigious institution in Ann Arbor. You can study politics really well without being in DC (like at Michigan). You can study finance really well without being on Wall Street (like at Michigan). You can learn to be a Broadway star without being on Broadway (like at Michigan). Same goes for music and film.
Yes, you can study in the two biggest cities in the world. The point we're trying to make is that you don't have to be in the biggest cities in the world to study music, especially if a world class institution in the midwest happens to have a state of the art music studio and nationally renound music school. You don't have to be where the industry is to study it.
Both Bob Seger and Blackfoot hate you as well!
Uh...Ted Nugent? /s
He could major in music theory, minor in business. Seems like a winning combination.
I have no idea, just assumed. I was LSA/Geological Sciences which apparently no longer exists.
No, you cannot. He could double major in an LSA department though, like econ.
You can minor as a BBA though not in every field.
If it's' still around, and I think it is, a general studies degree, where you essentially design your own major would be a great opportunity. One could take classes on north campus for music and audio engin, lsa at central campus, and b.a. classes as well. And, if on track to graduate in four years, and reshirts his first, you could get a fifth year in as a grad student. I suspect this would also allow a player to take the harder classes outside of football season.
But Michigan does have Detroit for Music.
I thought I heard or read something about him being recruited as a CB. Can anyone recall this being this being said. A 6-2 CB would be great in this class because we seem to be lacking height at CB in the last two classes.
Did they really offer him #2, or was it more like "You would have every opportunity to wear Charles Woodson's famous #2, possibly with a patch"?
That was my understanding, that he could potentially get the #2 jersey.
I don't know about offering him the #2 right away. Countess would be a senior and should have a shot at it.
I'm very skeptical that the staff would offer him more than a chance to earn the #2 jersey. That way they can make the same offer to Fuller and future recruits. I'm expecting to see Countess wear #2 McQuay's first two seasons.
We're in on so many top flight players, and yet have so few spots left.
Theres no denying what Hoke is doing with Team 134. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that? So exciting!
Encouraging sign, USC leads for Tahaan Goodman and are in the top-two (with Oregon) for Max Redfield. Those are two of the best safeties in the nation. They have Cravens too, but I'm pretty sure he is coming in at LB. They're also in good shape with Priest Willis, he is a CB/S. Could easily turn into a head-to-head with Vandy.
Edit: Mentioned above, but also note that Michigan is the only school in the top-three of both McQuay and Alvin Bailey. Bailey has a top-three of us along with FSU and Central Florida. McQuay and Bailey are teammates at Armwood. Both of them on campus at the same time for an official could be great.
Michigan,usc,and vandy.Guys we have more than just a shot here. Right now we are the leader for sure. IF he visits again before the season we will be on commit watch! The BIG thing for L3 is the chance to wear Charles Woodson's number 2 jersey.
I don't see them on here yet so here are McQuay's beats, which happen to be crispy. He's not just saying that he wants to go into music, it seems like he has some actual talent.
I was expecting him to be good, but he does have some actual talent when it comes to producing.
From Toronto. His grandpa was one helluva rb in the cfl!
Anyone know if his father played football?
Don't count out ND, he is visiting them this month... and recruits seem to really love brian kelly land
Assholes are cool?
USC has Snoop Dog, and he has access to a lot of studios. Ask Ty Isaac.
He can't go to USC if they run out of slots. Sanctions#
Is my birthday! Hopefully Mich can offer up a nice gift with his commitment.
Just looked at McQuay's Rivals page. It appears he comes from the Greg Oden school of looking 50: http://rivals.yahoo.com/michigan/football/recruiting/player-Leon-McQuay%20III-100111
For his sake, hopefully his body does not breakdown on him like he is 50.
He looks like he is from the 1970's but I think it is a cool look. He looks like Dick Allen. I am in college I'm just a baseball fan.
Being from Nashville and living here in Nashville, Vandy is not the spot for musicians. Belmont University is where all the musicians and aspiring musicians attend, so with that being said, I LIKE OUR CHANCES!! GO BLUE!!
In the even he goes our way, there's really only one thing that can be said: that shit quay.
My Birthday is tommorow the 5th so if not today on your birthday maybe mine would be a great present to me and the fan base. lol Im not greedy!
He put us in the top three without even meeting Hoke yet, and he's planning to come up in the summer for another unofficial just to meet him. All the momentum in his recruiting points to Michigan. My bet is once Hoke points at him, he's Blue.
Just listened to his tracks on SoundCloud. This kis has got skillz. We really need to get him in the secondary, make him earn the #2, and have him develop some of our theme music. For starters replace Sweer Caroline and White Stripes being beaten to death.
My prediction based on flimsy evidence, we get him in November.
Please to all you said!
This is really exciting news. Another positive is that the Rivals page says he graduates in December 2013 meaning he may be an EE candidate.
Would be quite the combo of safety/corner and wr were we to get Bailey and him.
That shit Quay
Only in my dreams could vanderbilt take control of the SEC
Don't have enought points to start a thread but I just read on rivals that we are also in Joe Mathis's top 3... It's paywalled but here is the link http://michigan.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1372226
tryin to make it up to visit soon. via tremendous. eeekkkk!
I think now that we are getting down to the last few scholarships available, all of these top recruits are doing a double take and thinking "Great school, great coaches, and a chance to compete for national titles? I want to go there". This is why we are suddenly popping up on EVERYONE's top lists. They want to make sure the coaches know that they have interest so that we don't fill up before they can make it out to visit.
With the class that we have already put together, if we add several hi 4* or 5* types, this collection of talent will be unstoppable in 3 more years!
That's gotta bode well for us. Two elite teammates that have expressed interest in playing together at the next level, both with Michigan in their top 3. More importantly, Michigan is the only school in common between their top 3s. Hopefully they visit together and have a great time.
"Question: Is there any chance Leon McQuay III ends up at Michigan?
Chris Nee: I heard the Michigan visit went well, but I don't see it happening. I still feel that is a Florida-Vanderbilt battle for McQuay. "
"Question: Marcell Harris out performed Leon McQuay at VTO Camp getting the MVP of the defensive backs, but he dropped and McQuay moved up. How and why?
Chris Nee: McQuay didn't do the entire camp. He had a hamstring issue that led him to call it a day bit early since he still had track and field states. McQuay projects as the better safety than Harris long-term in our opinion. Both will be part of the Rivals100 Challenge, so we will see them in that setting again and hopefully this time McQuay can do everything. "
"Question: Is Florida out of it for wide receiver Alvin Bailey since they didn't offer by his spring game?
Chris Nee: He named 13 teams today, no Florida. No offer from UF has them eliminated for now. If the Gators offered, they could make a run. He is very good friends with Matt Jones and admittedly likes Florida a great deal. "
Slightly OT David Dawson bonus question:
"Question: Why isn't offensive lineman David Dawson in top 100?
Josh Helmholdt: Dawson had a very strong off-season of camps and is set for a move, but he was around 200 last time... that would have been a heck of a move to break into the top 100. He will get a chance to keep improving his stock at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Atlanta next month."
