Not the same at all. Their rationalization is "O well, urbz cooled on that top 5 player." The previous poster is saying while he doesn't like our chances with Jones, it's not really the end of the world for UM. We have depth and talent at the OL positions and while he is a good player, he is not near the talent level of a Peppers/Hand.
OL Jamarco Jones sets decision date for June 27
...Would be AWESOME if he came to Michigan, but I'm not liking our chances at the moment. That said, I didn't like our chances with Winovich 3-4 weeks ago either and we closed in a hurry, maybe we can do the same.
If Jones picks ohio, who are the remaining O-linemen UM is looking at?
Touch the Banner has a listing of all our 2014 offers by posish.
Thanks for the information. Does anyone know where we stand with our other O-linemen offers?
Our best shots appear to be with Jamarco Jones, Roderick Johnson, and Casey Tucker. Were playing from behind on all three, it would seem. All other offered offensive linemen have either eliminated Michigan or we were never in the running, anyway.
Michigan has not offered Andrew Mike, but they have bumped up interest recently, perhaps because the coaches realize options are getting limited.
very good, and I keep hearing Ohio for him, but stranger things have happened.
Jones would be a dominant OG, especially in a system that is primarily a man blocking scheme. I think he would be incorrectly utilized (though still a very good player) in a predominately zone scheme. He could only make a pretty good OT, though I think if he does move to tackle it would have to be RT, but he doesn't really have the lateral movement, length, or foot speed to maximize his upside.
Did u do one on peppers
I just started it very recently, I'm working my way through quite a few players. My hope is not to simply do recruiting things, either, I want to actually get into more football specifics. I'm also still working on multiple things for maize n brew, so I'm keeping pretty busy working on everything.
FYI: I linked to your blog from TTB.
Many people said the exact same thing...
Schilling was VERY solid during his days at Michigan. And he got drafted, correct?
To people wondering what the news is, I think it's that he established he will be announcing a 1:00.
OSU better hope they land this kid. If I was a buckeye fan and OSU missed out on Jones here, I'd start worrying about what the next recruiting class was going to look like.
Say in a perfect world, UM gets Hand and McDowell, there is no way OSU fans can be confident in saying Meyer outrecruited Hoke this year. I've been amazed at the talent that UM's coaching staff has been able to reel in thus far.
