Good possibility of more huge recruiting news for Michigan later this week. Stay tuned to http://TheWolverine.com ...
this may be of some local interest
14 or 15 kid? Probably Crawford, maybe Kinnel, he just got offered. If 14 I think Westphal for some reason
Tyree Kinnel S out of Ohio was just offered and will be a Wolverine. It is a matter of when, not if with him.
I don't think Kinnel would be deemed huge news by recruiting people.
Huge can be an ambiguous term in recruiting, but there it is. I think when he says huge, he means on the level of Campbell and Harris. No offense to either Kinnel or Westphal, but I wouldn't see either as HUGE news. Technically, Crawford wouldn't be huge news, becaus he's already considered a lean, but I do consider him a huge recruit, so maybe.
I can't take much more of this.
Who am I kidding, yes I can. I feel like a Hollywood red carpet with all these stars committing!
Kinnel said he wants to wait until after his junior year to decide. It's a possibility, but my money is on Crawford.
Did he say that before or after he got the Michigan offer? If before, that plan might change.
building an Ark. It is raining recruits and there is no end in in sight..
Urbs will have health issues soon.
Please be Hand.
I almost didn't want to respond to you because your avi creeps me out so much but that's the only guy who could be considered huge after the level of commits we just got right? I mean, Crawford would be great but not huge. Kinnell wouldn't really be huge by anyone's standards. Who else was at the BBQ? Trying not to get my hopes up but Hand has been quiet for awhile.
What's creepy about a guy who goes around yelling "SQUUUAAAAD!!!" all the time?
If you have a problem with Waka Flocka Flame then you have a problem with me.
Malik McDowell would qualify as "huge" in both news and physical stature.
No way it's Lattimore and Smith, right?
If it is, it would make me feel like an oracle.
Translation: "Hey, subscribe to rivals."
But he was even talking about it on The Huge show today.
Perfect. That's exactly what those type of headlines are trying to do. When something does happen, it always ends up here within 5 minutes anyway, so I don't see the point.
Guys it obvious: HANDPOCALYPSE NOW!!!
Each day passes and Hand gets closer to Treadwell. I figured Hand wouldnt miss that BBQ
Cole and Crawford.
That would be awesome. If we're going with pairs of commits, Weber and Alabi have to be a reasonable choice too.
Edit: OK, I see that it is a 2014 kid, so I'll change my guess to McDowell now.
Lattimore. It seems unlikely, but fuck it, the way this week is going I'm playing with house money.
Any chance it's a hoops recruit?
Balas later on said it's a football kid.
It's important to keep in mind that Chris Balas, is in fact, an arrogant jerk.
Kinnel and Crawford, 2 4star DBs from Ohio.
Malik McDowell would be huge. Also, he's huge. Physically.
WHERE IS THE WILTON CODE TWEET?
Come on down!
This is getting redonkulous.
This is insane in the membrane
Given that balas does basketball recruiting for the wolverine I'm thinking its booker or blue it
Are we sure this is a 2015 guy?
If you have ESPN Insider, Tom is being especially mysterious.
Well Steve Lorenz said that there's a big possibility of grabbing a top 2014 target this week. On twitter he says it's "bigger than Crawford", so I think that rules out Montae and Westphal.
That leaves McDowell, Hand, Juju, Adoree IMO. Those guys can be considered to be bigger than Crawford is. My money is on Malik.
Malik or Hand makes the most sense. Since Malik just said he's waiting, I'll go with Hand.
If it's Lattimore, I'll be shocked, but quite happy.
Is Adoree stil planning on visiting this week with his friend?
The Handpocalypse may be upon us; prepare yourselves.
is certainly keeping the last week or so of my summer interesting. If it's 2015, I'll go with Crawford, as that seems trendy/the only one that I know of that seems close that seems big. If it's 2014, and "bigger" than Crawford, the ones on the table that seem actually "huge" would be a Lattimore surprise, McDowell, Hand just going for it, or one of the West Coast guys, or maybe some wonderful resurgence in Fournette stuff.
FWIW, in a post on the board Tim Sullivan mentions that Michigan made a huge move for a top prospect over the weekend and that this prospect may decide soon. That would lead me to believe that it is not someone like Crawford, Jenkins, Hand or McDowell, who are are favorites for already.
This sounds like Lattimore then. Yes please.
Lattimore may not be as far fetched as most of us think. There is some circumstantial pieces of evidence in our favor. First, he has stated several different times that he is not an OSU lock. Second, Lattimore had a great time at the BBQ, and there are unconfirmed rumors that he sat alone at Ohio's FNL. Now this report about us making a big move with a top recruit this weekend. It's possible.
Add on to it that I read somewhere that he wants to wear the #2 in college. And of course, Hoke's slick ass has him decked out in a #2 jersey, which btw happened to be worn by a certain Heisman trophy winning cornerback from Ohio. Coincidence?
I think this could apply to McDowell. He is a Michigan lean, yes, but he also was planning on taking all of his official visits (in SEC country) and not deciding until the AA Game. If his BBQ visit pushed up his decision and he's no longer taking visits, I'd consider that a huge move. Plus, I think I read that he was scheduled to be back in AA later this week.
My best friend is a huge Stanford fan, so I choose the '15 QB. This also qualifies as "huge".
It's a 2014 kid.
Lattimore and Smith since ohio just took Booker at safety. The ohio boards will melt
Would we take both with limited spots? I'd imagine both Hand and Malik have priority in this case.
No rb so prolly
These kids are seeing the light and Michigan is ascending faster than any other major program in the country. Recruiting is college football and at this rate im going to be broke the first week in January accomodating BCS bowl travel plans for years to come!
then why not Jashon Cornell?
Hand and Cornell in back to back years would be all right I guess.
Lattimore is the best case scenario. Hand and McDowell are great too, but we've known we'll be at least finalists with them for months. Lattimore would be an surprise bonus.
I would never count my chickens before they hatch, but we have been hearing ton about a lot of the really big 2014 guys already, so it would be best if it were an amazing shock. That being said, if it were Hand, no one here would be complaining.
Lorenz says it's a 2014 guy that's bigger than Crawford, so that narrows it down quite a bit -- Hand or McDowell most likely. I guess it could also be a big surprise like Juju, Montae, or Adoree (Fournette and Mixon seem to be not even long shots anymore).
It could also be somebody like Booker or Looney, I suppose.
At this point we should just start making threads for when we're not on commit watch.
I am going to say E. Smith just for the hell of it. There is no way we get 2 guys from Glenville rated so high right?
...eventually someones going to figure out that you've got the recruiting difficulty on JV.
if we take the facts, such as that it's a 2014 guy, is a bigger deal than a top 150-ish DB from 2015, and is fairly sudden/unexpected, I'll say f&*% it and go with Lattimore. Book it.
I have to get some sleep!!
Hand. Getting the process over so he can focus on the season ahead. It screams Hand all the way.
Hope it's Lattimore for the delicious schadenfreude.
I can't see why Hand would commit seeing how quiet he's been. It's gotta be someone from the BBQ so I'm gonna guess on McDowell with Lattimore as the kicker. For some reason my gut likes Lattimore the most though. That being said everything we don't expect to happen seems to be happening so for all I know it's like Marlon Humphrey or something. He is in AA....
If the stories of Lattimore supposedly having a good time at the BBQ and the whole him sitting alone thing at FNL are true...smells like orc mischief to me
Hand has stated that he will commit when he feels ready.
Consensus across the interweb seems to have decided its going to either be Malik or Lattimore
