I agree with your prediction but I wouldn't be surprised if there is a commit no one saw coming. No, I don't have inside info just a guess.
The Official NSD Prediction Thread
you just invented a verb there..
Barnett, Clark, Rawls, and Willingham go Blue i believe, while I think Cooper is just "too little too late" in regards to his recruitment. Also, Its hard to get any sort of feeling about Fisher, but the very little have is not good.
6/6 I hope though.
plus Clowney (surprise!)
On that which makes us the kings of wishful thinking. Of course I'm being honest, all the speculation and conjecture is veiled hope for our beloved Wolverines to beat the snot out of everyone else. Getting the best recruits available is the logical way to realize that action.
All your DTs and OTs should be ours!
But I do like what Hoke, GMatt and crew have done in a very condensed period of time!!
all your base are belong to us
I'm virtually in the exact same boat as you are, with those 4 choosing to sign with us. One thing that worries me is that Willingham has a teammate at Colorado and lives in Colorado. I know we've heard that his Michigan visit was great, but I'm just not as certain with him as with the other 3. I'm fairly confident that he'll come to UM, but just for the sake of converstaion, what makes you so certain he'll come?
Sam Webb has a gut feeling on Willingham. Thats usually a pretty accurate indicator.
Michigan Locks: Willingham, Clark, Barnett, and Rawls
So you predict a tossup? Does that mean they will shock everyone by deciding with coin flip?
Every Ohio State, Michigan State, and Notre Dame recruit decommits.
After NSD when can the coaches start to recruit the 2012 class? I know obviously they have been in some contact with players hence the posts of offers for 2010 kids but what are the rules is there a dead period for them or is it full force ahead?
........Clark, Barnett, Willingham and Rawls for us. I also think we got in on Cooper just in time, and that he'll be a Wolverine as well.
I agree. I think we get five of six and cooper goes blue. Fisher goes out west.
I'll go the same, except it is Cooper we lose and Fisher goes Blue. Really, can a life-long UM fan whose family lives in TR go to Oregon to play?... when the Hokester is just rolling? Also, is it possible to choose Arkansas over Michigan? So I think we only lose Cooper.
Fisher seems like a long shot at best.
What happened to Trayion Durham? Didn't he visit like just a week ago and it says on rivals that he still hasn't committed.
EDIT: Nevermind, Kent State
Durham is going to Kent State.
Well Mark from Novi seems to think we are locked for all 6 recruits, so mark it down.
Only if he can BKFinest it...
Who's Mark from Novi? I'm Mark from Novi but have made no such predictions.
This Mark from Novi is going with 5 of the 6, with Oregon pulling Fisher away.
At 7:45 in the morning and WTKA does a piece called "recruiting roundup" every day M-F. Sam Webb AKA "the Michigan insider" hosts it and does a great job. Marc calls in every morning with an interesting/relevant question/comment for Sam. He honestly could probably co-host that segment. I think I've also heard him in the afternoon calling, but the morning show with Sam and Ira is the best AM sports talk show on the air. The sports I.Q. is what you would expect from a Michigan Sports talk show, and the guys do a great job. They also put the recruiting roundup on the podcast on their stations' website.
Cosign. I listen every morning, and Sam and Ira do a great job. Sam Webb and TomVH are completely in a class all by themselves when it comes to covering UM recruiting; nobody else is even in the same galactic sector.
I predict that BKFinest approves of this thread and therefore I don't.
Barnett-Leaning towards Michigan but not as certain as the above 3.
Fisher-Between UM and Oregon. Oregon concerns me. I think he goes blue (maybe just wishful thinking) based on distance/what others around him want but no confidence whatsoever.
Cooper-No idea. I believe Iowa, although for the life of me I don't know why.
Beat me to it. I like the way you think...
I totally agree with you about Cooper. How can a parent trust Iowa with their kids? This college, that in the past couple months, have had several black marks against it for example players kicked out of the program and not to mention sending a dozen kids to the hospital with an "unexplained illness".
What parent wouldn't want to send their kids to Iowa?
I also think Rawls ends up like Mike Hart - comes in under the radar (relatively) and tears it up right off the bat.
Clean sweep. baby
I predict Clowney, Thomas, Depriest, D. Grant, Timmy J, Sammy Watkins, and HaHa to all yell 'surprise!' and pull an M hat. BKFinest it
I was hoping for Frost
For a couple hours yesterday, the real Devin Gardner was using your design on twitter as his picture/avatar/whatever. Like the one I have as my picture, 'cept with the "Devin Gardner" subtitle...you see that?
that is 100% pure Colombian Awesomeness... someone tell him he can keep it up there, I don't mind
Best video game guy ever.
but they made me change it
Willingham, Clark, Barnett, Rawls, Cooper, Fisher
Willingham - Blue
Clark - Blue
Barnett - Blue
Rawls - Blue
Cooper - Blue
Fisher - Oregon
5 out of 6 with Cooper the most likely to not end up Blue.
but hoping for 4 of the 6 and a quiet backup surprise. If the coaches can still call and text, there is still a chance to find one more interested recruit before Wednesday.
If we get 4 more, will we be a top 25?
Scout has us at 28, rivals at 27 - with four more solid prospects, we are definetly a top 25 class
My prediction? Lots of alcohol for me, and hopefully lots of celebrating and yearning for the fall. Bring on Jameson and everyone else!
Willingham - Blue
Clark - Blue
Barnett - Blue
Rawls - Blue
Cooper - Blue
Fisher - Oregon
Then Hoke turns Beavers Blue snubbing the Illini. (I kind of feel like we missed the boat on Beavers...given our needs up front.)
I predict that I will need to buy a new F5 key on Thursday.
That would be a very dissapointing Thursday...you should get that new F5 key after Tuesday
These little chickens are coming home to roost the BIg House.
Well I'm in Dayton, so add some ice to that. SNOWMAGEDDON!
All 6 obviously
Rawls and Clark both commit
Willingham decides to stay in the Rockies
Cooper Goes to the Hawkeyes
Fisher spurns us for the Oregon Locker room
and Barnett (with his 1450 SAT and 3.36) decides to forgo all logic and enroll at Arkansas (he could be dean there with those grades)
Dean at Arkansas?
And fire this guy?
He looks like John Daly in that picture. (He also looks like my future brother-in-law. Sorry Mike! I really didn't mean it - don't sit on me. But you know it's true!)
Get: Willingham - Clark - Rawls - Barnett - Cooper (shakiest, us or Iowa)
Lose: It pains me to say this, but I think Fisher goes to Oregon
Solid finish, if we miss out on both Cooper and Fisher I will be mildly disappointed. Maybe there's a signing day surprise that we haven't heard about...
If we miss out on a few, the positive thing is the midwest is loaded next year and we can bank some scholarships for the 12 class.
I don't know exactly why everyone is so down about Fisher so I'll be the one to say that we get him and lose out on Cooper.
I would love to see us pick up all six but am thinking all but fisher go blue
If that's the case......fisher is dead to me
I'm thinking we are locks for Rawls, Willingham, and Clark. 75% on Barnett. 50% on Cooper. 45% on Fisher.
100% snow. Its going to be a very wintery wonderland.
Rawls, Clark, and Fisher go Blue. Cooper goes to State, Willingham goes to CU.
On Saturday, Barnett goes Blue.
But I think Cooper will be heading to GT. If he doesn't go to Atlanta, he's coming here.
I agree Fisher's a goner to Eugene.
If BH pulls off all six, I'll have to get on my knees and do one of those I'm-not-worthy-deals.
Maybe take a breathmint with you for afterwards...
Huh? wha— oh.
I'll give lip service to BH when warranted, but not that kind of lip service.
Willingham, Rawls, Clark and Barnett go blue. All have expressed interest and have not visited any other schools of substantial caliber or value after us (no offense to Central Florida of course)
Cooper - I think Cooper goes to Iowa. I'm not sure why everyone is convinced he will go to State but I get the general consensus that he likes the staff at Iowa and Norm Parker in particular.
Fisher goes to Oregon. I am more confident in him than Cooper going blue however I just think that he is really trying to talk himself out of going to Michigan as much as possible. Based on nothing but his behavior and gut instinct.
A DeMatha S today too. You might be right.
IS anyone thinking about moving Desmond Morgan to FB?
The slot ninja of 2011
Fisher...see ya even though I wish he would be maize and blue. Cooper is coming if he knows whats good for him.
Well as I reviewed my facebook statuses from 2010, I realized that every player or event that was bad was directly referenced in a positive way on my wall. Also I managed to pull an 0fer on predicting the baseball playoff first round and football 2nd round. So I predict we're not going to get any of them,
I think we land 4 out of the 6 and then 1 guy in a last minute use of the Hoke/Mattison recruiting prowess.
