OH DE Pharaoh Brown Offered *TomVH: Quotes Added*
I wouldn't mind having Odenigbi pass rushing as well...
Absolutely. Wormley and Brown are two very complete DEs.
Let my QB GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Ah, SOMEBODY was going to do it.
That just reminded me of one of my favorite Fresh Prince scenes ever.
Ashley was lookin good there!
She looks pretty good in general.
John Navarre style...only hopefully less statue-like.
These names are getting better and better.
So awesome, but still not Iris Macadangdang.
Pharaoh... MUST GET
Really looking forward for the potential Six Zero shirt if we get this guy.
The names in this year's class are exceptional.
They're tremendous, really.
I'm hoping this guy unleashes some unrest in opponents' backfields.
If tsio offers him, he's probably good.
First TVH Post hijack...I'm giddy.
What an incredible name.
Another potential fine addition to the D-line......
Oh, and the other team had a QB? We couldn't find him after Brown was finished.....
Thanks Tom. Now I will watch the entire highlight tape instead of just skimming it.
That hurts man. That hurts
You are no slouch yourself. It was just nice to hear there is mutual interest is all.
I set the pins up now someone knock them down.
That's what she said.
Now make me a sandwich and get me the remote control...honey.
Love is a beautiful thing...
Don't sell yourself short, Dennis, you're a tremendous slouch.
You are the winner. That's exactly what I was going for there.
Put the pussy in a sarcophogus.
does anyone know how many offers have been sent out so far? I don't trust the lists on the pay sites because they don't update frequently enough. Maybe we can get our own full list together.
Both Magnus and I try to combine the two pay sites, as well as newspaper articles, etc, to provide a more complete offer board. Some kids report offers to Scout but not Rivals and vice versa, or one's just slower than the other. Rivals is reporting 23 offers right now, I've got 30.
Are there any significant names of the 7 that are not being listed on rivals?
On a separate note have you heard of any kids that got offers from the old staff, but the new staff might not pursue?
None that I know of.
I'll go through all 7.
1) SC RB Demetrius Williams-I'm not sure that he has an offer, I'm taking that one on faith from Magnus.
2)OH WR Dwayne Stanford- Rivals doesn't have Dwayne Standford listed as an offer. He self-reported an M offer on Scout, so it makes sense. He's probably the top WR in the midwest (as long as you don't count Missouri being in the midwest).
3)WA T Zach Banner- Another one who self-reported it on Rivals. Seems legit. We won't land him either way, though.
4) OH DE Pharaoh Brown- Rivals doesn't have a page for him?
5) DC CB Kenny Crawley- Self reported it to a local newspaper...I'm not sure this one's legit either. Not reported on either of the premium sites, it was before the CC, and I've seen film of him...he's not that impressive.
6) NJ S DJ Singleton- Self-reported on Scout. Legit, but M doesn't have much of a shot anyway.
7) PA LB Deaysean Rippy- Reported on Scout. Top national LB recruit, likely a lock for UF anyway.
To answer your second question: Yes, there might be a few. All three of the safeties I have listed on the offer board were from the RR staff, and don't have ties to Michigan. Plus, with the DB class we took, Hoke might not see it as necessary. I think he'll be targeting his own safeties. If Kenny Crawley's is legit...well I imagine the new staff might not follow up on that. There are some other offerrees like FL TE Sean Price, FL S/WR LaTroy Pittman, or FL WR Avery Johnson who are either committed elsewhere or not coming to M, so the staff might focus their attention elsewhere. I think the rest of the guys they offered are going to be pursued, however.
Thanks for the run down.
How about the Tampa Plant QB Bennie Coney. I would guess he was offered by the current staff since he is a pro style QB. I just read recently that he had some off-field issues last year and is working hard to put that behind him.
He was actually offered by the old staff. However, like Robert Gregory, he's one that could potentially fit into both systems. People think because he was offered by the old staff, or because he's got a fast 40, or because he's black, or Lord-knows-why, he doesn't have a pro-style arm. That's just not the case.
He got suspended for part of his season for reasons that are escaping me right now...I think it had something to do with his coaches. But everything I've read really backs up what you've said...he's trying really hard to put it behind him and focus on the team for the upcoming year.
I have some insight into Rippy. They will be a legit player in his recruitment if they decide they want to take 3 LBs. They won't take him at the expense of Royce though. They feel pretty good about James Ross, but have some things to smooth over with Royce. They will wait until after spring ball to determine how many they truly want to take at each position after spring ball obviously. They have to see what they have first. They will keep in touch though.
Sound like two badass heroes in a blaxpoitation flick from the '70s co-starring Pam Grier.
I can't wait to see these two hunt down Blackula and drive a stake through his jive-ass heart.
Blackula = Mark Dantonio
I'll bring the popcorn if you bring the Colt .45.
Purple Stuff you just saved me 20 minutes in the gym. I've been laughing so hard my abs hurt!!!
Has to come up with a Blacksplotation style of the Victors.
Because ever action hero needs his theme music...
literally had me rolling.
Beside the obvious images of Egyptian Kings, his name reminds me of this:
I'll raise you
This looks like a replacement for Davion Rogers
Where did Davion end up?
The rumor is he's still on campus and plans on joining the football team this upcoming year...
That would be great. I always saw him as a possible second coming of Ted "the mad stork" Hendricks and I'd love for that
Nickname to come back.
a rumor.You have this odd sensation that somebody else is in the room, and yet, you can never see him...
So it is written, so it shall be done.
Ramses II. My dad used to quote him all the time when I was a kid.
...giggling about "condoms"?
What are those?
Also, is it itchy in here or is it just me?
This is my favorite thread in a long time just real funny.
Anything that says TomVH im reading but great post thanks DG.
This kid looks great would love to have him. Looks like a definite redshirt year and possibly rd-fresh year of eating everything in sight tho.
