I mean, there's no possible way that's bad news, is there?
Peppers may verbal sooner than expected (tomvh & tremendous)
That's kindof what I expect him to do. He was talking about committing after his season with a bunch of guys from his team, so doing it after his Stanford visit would definitely be a lot sooner than he expected.
Not unless Dantonio offers him a scholarship....then we would be in trouble.
There it is.
But drive with caution.
Well said. I'm trying to temper my enthusiam until he commits and signs on NSD. After watching his video, it's becoming very tough to do.
Well I expected him to verbal on Monday, so unless he wants to disappoint me, it has to be today or tomorrow.
Could I ask why you think he is going to verbal on Monday? I am not doubting you one bit just curious since I have been pretty busy of late and have not followed recruiting as much as usual.
Pepper probably won't verbal until after he visits Stanford which will happen in the summer. Originally, Peppers wanted to verbal on NSD, this just means that he'll decide earlier than that.
You should doubt me a lot bit
Here is a quick snapshot of some of the very greatest defensive players Mattison has coached: I'm missing quite a few as I only focused on NFL franchise All-pro credentials, but he has obviously had a chance to coach some of the greatest defensive players in the history of football. If you start adding all NFL players and college greats . . . the Mattison list gets much larger.
- Charles Woodson
- Ray Lewis
- Ty Law
- Terrell Suggs
- Ed Reed
- Trevor Pryce
- Haloti Ngata
- Corey Redding
He's got the ability to play on offense and be an electric punt returner like Woodson was. So I think Woodson 2.0 is a better comparison than Ty Law 2.0
Man, I would take a Ty Law 2.0 any day as well. Both Wolverines are certainly worthy of the NFL Hall of Fame.
But your right, if Peppers is being targetted for offense and special teams, that certainly wasn't Law's area of expertise . . . although Ty's three super bowl rings and 53 career NFL interceptioins also got the job done.
I generally thought Jabrill Peppers was going to be used as a Cornerback, but that 10.77 second NJ 100-meter dash record and his highlight tape certainly makes you wonder.
I was at michigan with welborne, law then woodson. And i gotta say the best cornerback of the three was ty law.
Why are you crediting TomVH and Tremendous when the kid said it hismelf?
But in the future, no one will care if you follow him on Twitter or not, just say Peppers says he may verbal sooner or later.
That man has held me through some of my toughest times!
Peppers, come on down!
I'm laughing like a little girl after hearing this news. Is this normal?
I watch this kid's highlights and I see a guy who's probably gonna wear number 2. Kid looks truly elite
Really? Well...good news.
I may spend all summer trying to do this.
but I don't have tattoos or long hair so I can't possibly look as cool..
Peppers actually said that himself, Tom VH is just reposting pepper's orignal tweet. So....that's even better!!
Yes, but when? WHEN? My refresh button can't last through July.
Woah what happen to all your points?
This isn't the first time he's been sent to Bolivia. He has a tendency to make really dumb comments.
Apparently making fun of feminists is over the line.
Which makes me lol because people were making rape jokes in the same thread but making fun of feminists is what gets someone Bolivia'd.
It was just a matter of time before I got sent back there. I'll join the other 5 guys that were sent there the past 2 weeks.
I'm taking a break from posting for awhile.
Judging from his past tweets, it looks like Michigan is in the driver's seat. he was definitatly watching the tournament, so the basketball team's success helped football! i just hope this is a michigan-lean tweet and not a "I'll decide between stanford and Michigan" tweet.
You are freaking out...
Hand me a Bushel of Peppers.
Hoke can't recruit
We need some context for this tweet. This could just mean that he's going to decide after his visit to Stanford, which we've known for a couple of weeks.
You are correct; he's apparently vacillating on the previously firm decision to have a post season commit party. Stanford visit is still on in July - coach has an engagement in the area that he *won't* miss - so unless Stanford blows his footies off, he's strongly considering ending it relatively shortly thereafter.
Maybe "sooner than expected" means sooner than what everyone thought before the tweet. He could commit today!
I think he is leaning heavily towards Michigan and knows where he wants to go but will visit Stanford because he said he would and unless he is blown away there will commit sooner than expected.
Phone is long dead
COME ON! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!? DO IT! DO IT NOWWWWWWW!
GET DOWN! GET DOWN AGAIN!
THIS SUMMER, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER IS...LITTLE TORTILLA BOY!
This. I had the pleasure of spending maybe a total of ten hours on Stanford's campus a couple summers ago and it's just unreal. If he decides before going out there, that would be great, because you never know what could happen when he sees what they've got to offer.
Don't say stuff like that. He could be reading this!
Hopefully it will rain every day he's at Stanford.
It doesn't rain in the Bay Area between roughly April and October.
University of Michigan women are better looking. They can keep the buildings.
My father says I got my Stanford law degree at "Club Med Law School"
Stanford's campus is totally different from Michigan's. As beautiful as it is, it feels isolated from the community in Palo Alto. I really like that Michigan is part of Ann Arbor.
Point here is that the campus a personal preference thing. If he visits in the summer, the contrast between awful Michigan weather and perfect NorCal weather won't be as pronounced.
Now from a tweet which was retweeted by Jabrill so pretty much comfirmed by him. "Jabrill Peppers head coach says "He is getting close to a decision. He will prob make his decision in early June to focus on Sr. year."
This means before Stanford
Your response combined with your avatar just seems perfect.
Hah, believe it or not, that's just a photo of me.
Thank you good sir!
Best news in this thread BY FAR!!!!
OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT. Hopefully it also helps others to decide to commit.
So basically he is committing today. I hope.
HAND me MO PEPPERS
He also boasts a 3.9 gpa, wants to be a orthopedic surgeon if football doesn't work and raps with a track produced by MF Doom. I'm impressed.
Your hope came true...you're wrong.
Just checked out his highlight real for the first time. All I can say is WOW! One of the most impressive I have ever watched. Charles Woodson 2.0 is a pretty apt comparison. I would think Hoke and Borges won't be able to resist putting him out at WR on occasion and returning punts like Woodson did.
A splash of pepper on my weekend, yum
I like what I'm hearing. It's been a while since we have had a truly elite game changing player in the defensive secondary and special teams. I honestly can't remember the last time I felt there was a chance for a big play with every pass or punt. YES!!!! Please!!!!!
On second thought, meh. I watched his tape. He didn't even hurdle anybody.
I put that #%+* on everything. Go Blue young man.
... we buckle up!!!!
that Michigan will win their next national championship before Stanford does!
