Well, it looks like Meyer is not stopping at Webb and is now going after sophomores Weber and Alabi. One the one hand as a player to get offered by OSU you have to be psyched, on the other hand it's a little frustrating to see kids from one of our pipeline schools considering our arch rival. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news if you hadn't heard. Don't slam me for sharing the info. Here's the link, although I think it's paywalled.
OSU offers Cass Tech sophomores Weber and Alabi
Yawn. Kids get offers. It happens.
Well I mean it's not like UM doesn't offer Glenville kids just because it's a OSU pipeline. Or was, haven't heard much about Glenville in awhile but you get the point.
That's good. It's means the guys we have in our state are legit if other schools are offering them and Meyer has only gotten one Michigan guy through two years of being coach. Most guys in our state go to Michigan now that hoke is at the helm.
I agree that it's a great sign that we have highly rated talent if OSU is offering them. But, I'm not yet sold that Meyer won't get his fare share of them. He's already got the most highly regarded guy out of Cass Tech I can remember (Webb) in the past few years and it looks like he has a decent chance at these two. So, I guess time will tell if Hoke can hold onto the best ones or if Meyer can take his share of them. Regardless, I'm not here to argue a point...I just wanted to share some information I thought the board would be interested in knowing.
Now I can't enjoy the basketball game since Ohio offered some random sophomores.
Nothing to worry about here...
If anything, this just goes to show that Michigan is offering some quality D-I talent. If Meyer wants to offer them, fine. We've been offering and signing Ohio kids for decades. Meyer's going to get his guys, and we're going to get ours.
Do you know we have a basketball team, playing in a relatively important game in minutes?
But offer does not mean the kids are interested. Maybe they are. Maybe they aren't.
According to buckeyes ohio leads for Webber but his comments about Michigan say otherwise.
Just to clarify they said the offer meant a lot to them, they really like OSU, they were excited to meet Vrabel, and OSU is one of their top schools...UGH.
"I'm really excited to receive an offer from...[insert name of university here]. It would be a real privilege to play under Coach...[whoever]. I've always been a fan of [insert name of university here] and I feel blessed and excited. Academics will be a huge factor for me and I know from speaking to Coach [whoever] that [insert name of university here] that a real focus for the team is education. I was so excited to meet Coach [whoever] when I got the offer and while I don't really have a top list I know that they will be one of my top schools. If everything comes together then I hope to be able to take an unofficial with my parents in the coming months.
Lol. Eased my tension from bball for about 2 seconds
If anything, I think it's good. Shows that those guys are good players
Why wouldn't they? They aren't stupid.
Ain't Nobody Got Time Fa Dat!!!!!
Worry about this game!!
Would down vote but on mobile app
the messenger was just shot.
Never thought I'd say this but...it's still basketball season ;-)
That's because the last time it was still bball season for us this late in the year, the Internet didn't exist yet.
I am unhappy that your So passes Denethor, son of Ecthelion thread is at the top of the board this evening
Why are you so surprised and appalled, OP? They're good players and good players get offers. Doesn't matter what high school they play at.
I'm not appalled...just frustrated they consider OSU one of their top schools. But, it's still very early for the 2015 class.
Wrong thread via mgoblog app. My bad
Also: this is a stupid thread. And not just because it was above the Game 5 open thread and causing problems for me.
Maybe a big win will get the board feeling good & get me a few upvotes...maybe.
to steal some of our bball team's thunder. Keep tryin.
