Recent interview w/ the Class of 2012 5-Star DT.
Looking foward to you wrecking Big Ten offensive lineman. Go Blue!
I can really see him getting into broadcasting with the flashes we've seen so far. He has a great sense of humor and would be a hit for sure.
I can't wait to see this defensive line with him anchored in the middle of it for the next few years.
Michigan's Adventure - twice the fun!
Wild water adventure, for the price of one
Michigan's Adventure - twice the fun
Two parks for the price of one - twice the fun!
I so hate you for this. Damn jingle.
I will never go there again because of that f'ing song being looped all f'ing day! Holy shit they play it nonstop.
You're welcome. I just know you're itchin' for a ride on the Wolverine Wildcat.
What's her name?
This kid is going to be good.
that BWC and him wreck mofos side by side this season!!
That would be like 650 pounds of dude in the middle. Crazy.
Knowing that he's got to prove himself all over again as a college freshman is a great asset. I do hope he will be ready to play in the Alabama game. It would be a great experience for any freshman to play their first game in the Jerrydome.
Fishing with Pipkins sounds like fun.
I think we need a bigger boat.
Ever since the Army AA game I've been trying off and on to find some highlight tapes that show the Pipkins pursuit and immediate wreckage of Diggs. This article is the first I've seen photos of it, but I want video. Pipkins has like 0 film anywhere to be seen! How am I going to wait all the way till august to see him with my own eyes? If you know where I can see some AA highlights of him, especially "The Diggs Collision", itd be greatly appreciated
It's in the first 20 seconds of this video: http://rivals.yahoo.com/video/recruiting-football/Army-Bowl-Awards-1101680. He has more highlights later in the video as well.
Here's a better video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=eVgISd3Idts#t=156s
I loved how he quite literally caught Diggs in midair, sort of like an outfielder making a running catch. Yeah, Pipkins will do nicely up the middle on defense. I like where this is headed - I can see Pipkins being a nightmare for other teams, if he can do things like that combined with his sheer size.
the two plays immediately before the Diggs tackle in your 2nd video are pretty great too - in the first one he chases down & destroys the QB (who was silly enough to stay in-bounds), & in the 2nd one he gets beat by the QB in space on the run, but then some other dude tries to blindside block him but just bounces off without Peewee even noticing. you can hear the crack as the poor boy gets flattened. epic.
Love how he's praising Diggs as they show video of Pipkins crushing him.
"Pipkins has like 0 film anywhere to be seen! How am I going to wait all the way till august to see him with my own eyes?"
I love this kid. Great attitude and should be one hell of a football player.
he has been my favorite recruit from the last class for awhile now. i cant wait to get a #56 jersey!
I can't wait to see PeeWee sporting the winged helmet and doing post game interviews
Recruits/Commits/Athletes DO read this blog. So keep that in mind when talking about these kids.
Hi PeeWee !!! Work hard, do good, make everyone proud...Go Blue
is it ok if i call u big pimpkens??
Optimus Prime/Pipkins photoshop?
After seeing the vids, you've got to love his motor. He's in constant motion and for a kid who was 360 at the time, that's impressive.
How did he do in spring practices?
He struggled to get to the quarterback... mostly because he was still in high school, and not, you know, at practice.
Joe Bolden, Kaleb RInger, and Jarrod Wilson were the only early enrollees
Thought he was. My bad. I am interested though in how Bolden looked. BK said that he was to short at 6'2" to offer. Kid was originally a ND lean.
Rumors indicated that he had a pretty good spring... but If you believe spring ball rumors, I've got some oceanfront property in Mishawaka to sell you.
The St. Joe river isn't too bad. You know, besides how insanely unclean, smelly, and disgusting the river is.
Location, Location, Location!
Manti Teo is 6'2 ... Bolden is 6'3 ...I downvoted you because something about you is annoying me...sorry if im too blunt
That's no way to treat a visitor.
But I do agree that Bolden is definitely not too small to play linebacker. Kid looks, and moves, like a MIKE. I'm very high on his potential.
I agree it was jerkish..Just the part about a college coach not offering a kid because he is 6'3 just rubs me the wrong way...anybody who actually believes that is naive or misinformed
Or maybe i am naive thinking BK isnt a idiot
I honestly don't think it was because of his height. More likely his frame. He has a smaller frame than other BK MLB recruits. Ex) Jarrett Grace who also went to Colerian he was the total package of size (6'4") athleticism and frame for MIKE.
BTW Teo is a freak athlete which is why he got a offer. Also weis was the coach then.
One thing I really like about Ondre is that he was so good that he forced Rivals to dramatically change their ranking of him. The recruiting sites can be unbelievably stubborn about (more than nominally) recanting their initial impressions of a guy, but Ondre's on-field performance basically left them with no choice but to totally revise their original report on him. I love it.
And he didn't just go from unranked to like #245 or something. He rocketed all the way up to #15. Very rarely have I ever seen that happen.
the best thing about this kid is the kind of person he is. you can tell he will/is a great Michigan Man on and off the field.
According to posts here, ND did tell Bolden they wanted taller linebackers, that being said the kid is an absolute beast and ND not taking him because they wanted a guy an inch taller is there major loss. But don't feel bad tsiO told him the same thing.
This kid is a fucking beast! He has that special internal motor that cant be stopped. You are already a winner Ondre, for choosing The University of Michigan!
As long as you're a good student athlete and represent the school and yourself well by giving everything you've got, we won't be disappointed regardless of what happens. That's all anyone can ask of anybody.
Good God he moves fast for a big guy....360 at the AA Game???
Hopefully Coach Mattison has given Ondre the defensive playbook...he's going to be seeing significant playing time from day 1.
Ondre, keep working hard my man! We can't wait to see you playing in the Big House! Work hard this spring and summer, and come to camp READY. We're going to need you this next year! Go BLUE!
Give Michigan everything you have and there's no way you let any real Michigan fan down. More importantly, you won't let yourself down. Ann Arbor offers more than you can take in four years. Work hard. Enjoy.
This guy is not going to disappoint.
