spoiler alert: i linked this
Whenever I hear his name mentioned, they say he would commit to Michigan when offered. The pipeline thus continuing.
My guess as well.
that would be my guess as well. treadwell sounds like he is pretty open at this point but id love it to be him as well
seems to me its either jourdan lewis (cass tech DB) or darius latham (DT/OT from indiana)
Laquon would be a very nice addition , Logan Tulley-Tillman would be nice as well. Dude is a beast!!
I am getting excited for the 2013 class to start taking form especially with Morris recruiting for like a year already.
We're talking about a guy who doesn't.
Don't forget, he's got a whole another year to recruit
Be patient. I was going to say who it was when I am done talking to them.
Asking us, the MGoBlog community to be "patient', is an exercise in futility. Haha
Patience? On the internet? If I didn't know otherwise, I would have guessed you were new here...
LTT said he plans on acconcing at his all star game ever since bama offered so dont get ur hopes up on that 1
Eh, he said that right after his Bama visit. It's possible that he cooled down, realized we were well ahead, and decided to get it over with. On the other hand, he did say he wanted to give every school a shot, and that attitude is unlikely to change on a whim, so who knows. My money is on Treadwell, he's been on the verge of commiting for a while now.
I think I need recruiting rehab. Then Aquaman brings this 2013 news and I'm back on the crack pipe
Does that mean we get Diggs????
VT is the leader for Fuller, he's had a couple older brothers play there, so that would be quite the pleasant surprise.
To Bolivia with the man who suggests such!
in done with detox from 2012. Thanks aqua for making me relapse.
shallman or brenneman
its jayme thompson
tremendous tweeted its jayme thompson
None of the sites report an offer, but I assume Mich has?
Edit: Nevermind, seen that he has via Tremdous.
I think you're right. He's apparently deciding between us, Notre Dame, and WVU tomorrow.
I feel like that can't help our chances much.
EDIT: Tremendous is saying that he is claiming an offer from the coaching staff, even though it is not listed on the premium sites.
It's not unheard of this early on for the sites to be way inaccurate.
That said, no offence to tremendous or Thompson but with written offers still months from being sent out, it wouldn't be out of the question for Thompson to not have a committable offer (despite what he believes; it wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened in recruiting...).
Not saying it's the case one way or another, but we'll find out tomorrow one way or another. FWIW, this has already hit the Scout boards so I'm sure the mods there will investigate.
What is Jayme Thompson's rank?
I'm hoping this is sarcastic, since today is signing day for the 2012 class, and the sites haven't exactly gotten around to ranking all the prospects from the 2013 class yet.
You are correct sir. Lol
4*..top ten player in Ohio. Would be nice to get him locked up for next year. Looks like he will be solid down the road.
We are all nutjobs. Been raking over this stuff since 7am, and we're still at it. Only now we're looking at 2013.
God I love this program.
It never end, does it?
That being said, I don't think I'd want it differently.
Jayme said that he has been offered by all three schools he is deciding between. Just to clarify that situation.
It's Stefon Diggs.
Damn it! Someone said Diggs!
I'm a little concernd about his speed. I don't expect everyone to be Denard fast, but 4.8 40 (UA Combine) seems extremely slow for a corner.
isnt he a saftey though?
Per Trememdous' tweet, he was offered as a CB.
isnt he a saftey though?
He's also probably 16. So that leaves a good year to two years for development. He'll be fine I'm sure.
FWIW Rivals has him at 4.53 for his 40 time, not mind blowing by any stretch but for his size it's not half bad.
After watching his video, 4.5 seems more likely. He has decent speed.
On another note, his high school uniform is a little odd. Looks like Ohio's uniform with a ND throwback helmet.
They are Irish, but their colors never were green and yellow, I don't think. I george they were red and black. My sister went there, but 20 years ago.
Now, there are a lot of reasons for that 4.8 to not be representative of his true speed, but lets remember that combine-timed 40s, especially the big ones, are usually laser timed making them much slower than most of the hand time 40s being reported.
Donovan Warran ran 4.7 at the NFL combine, and he was a good corner here. It's possible that, even if Thompson is a legit 4.8 right now, he's in the 4.6-4.7 range by the time he's seeing the field. Sure, we all want corners who can fly, but there is a lot than can make up for pure speed for a cornerback.
Also, try and refrain from comparing 40 times too much. People love to talk about a kid who is a 4.4 or whatever, but there's a reason our Hello: posts have a FAKE 40 section - most of them are. There are only a handful of guys who actually run a 4.4 at the NFL combine, and those are 21-23 year old players with years of college S&C training who are the tops at their positions in the country. So when a HS kid reports a 4.4 or below, take it with a huge grain of salt.
Thanks, had seen a couple of reports with ESPN/247 saying 4.69 and the scout at 4.53. Just not used to seeing that big of a spread of 40s. After looking at the kid's film he certainly looks fast (chasing down a WR from behind after having a big big cushion).
Donovan Warran ran 4.7 at the NFL combine, and he was a good corner here.
Warren also aggravated an ankle sprain prior to the combine.
Why is he deciding so soon? Did he say?
Of locking down commits early even if it means going ofer in the last few weeks. Playing good defense down the stretch is okay by me.
Why is his name Jayme ?
Because Jehu was taken.
As were Jadaveon, Leviticus, and God's Gift
This might be the oddest comment/question I have ever seen from anybody.
Any time tomorrow? And here I thought I could exhale a bit...
Your second favorite thing is her...?
I won't be doing a happy dance if he commits here nor will I be pouting if he doesn't. He seems like a solid enough player with decent measurables but he doesn't seem to be a game changer (from the little I've seen on him). If he's all in then I'm on board but I don't forsee a meltdown if things don't pan out for us.
He's got a decent offer sheet, so I wouldn't be too down on him. Early offers from Notre Dame, West Virginia, and Nebraska. They haven't even hit camps yet.
Rivals is the only one showing that he has those offers.
I don't really have any reason to doubt the kid. If he says he has the offer and has discussed his intentions with the coaches, I'd be happy to have him on board.
Has he even visited yet?
He has visited us 3 times already.
so how many spots do we have open for 2013?
If the depth chart by class is correct and I've counted correctly we have 82 scholarship players for this season. I'll assume Brink lands one and that we grab Diamond or Kozan so call it 84 players on scholarship. With 16 seniors, that puts us at 17 available.
With regular attrition, let's call it a class of 22 for now.
What does Shane Morris have to say about all this?
Looks like its gonna be another "get your spot now or you will lose out" year. Depending on how many schollies we bank from 2012 class, how many can we take in 2013? 20?
Did someone say he is a 4*? Just wondering what caliber of player we are dealing with here.
247 shows that he took four unofficial visits, with three being to UM and the other to WV. It says he reported receiving a verbal offer on his second visit to UM. Couldn't find much info on him, but I'm liking his size.
Jayme is a Toledo guy, so I'd love to take him being from the area myself.
Interesting, he's probably a depth guy if he comes here.
Just like Jake Ryan, Frank Clark and Jordan Kovacs? You won't know until he straps on a winged helmet.
4* CB and more than likely top 10 player out of Ohio, but yeah....depth guy....
Know him personally and it's consensus that he will be a 4*. Hell his first year starting he was an All-TRAC safety.
People questioning his speed should watch his tape, his physicalitiy at the line and his hitting power make up for it for sure.
IMO, he is committing so early because he really came out of nowhere and just wants to get the process done. This is a guy who was playing JV as a sophmore and not starting ANYWHERE, and since he transferred he has became an elite player. This is why his offer list is limited. We are getting a steal if he commits. His stock will skyrocket throughout the next year. Sky is the limit for this kid.
BTW he has visited M way more than any of the other places. I think he is Blue all the way. Around Toledo it seems like he definitely is on his way to AA.
Can you talk more about this?

1, What was the deal with him not playing Varsity as a Sophomore? Was he physically underdeveloped at the time? Was his team stacked?
2. That's a fast transformation to becoming an elite player...what sort of effect did the transfer have on his transformation? Was he playing weaker competition? Did it have no effect, just an opportunity?
If you know this kid personally, I'd like to learn more about him.
But coming out of nowhere, and wanting to get his recruiting done quickly don't make much sense with me. If he did, as you say, come out of nowhere, bursting onto the scene, it would make more sense to slow evertyhing down... Why be in a hurry?
Oh well, we'll all know soon eough.
The way i see it is, him coming out of nowhere to being in a national spotlight, he sees how blessed he is to be in this situation and making a decision early is what he sees best in order to make the next step to make his dream come true.
Just trust me on this one guys, he will get the Sione Houma effect on his rankings and he will emerge as a top player out of Ohio. He will be an All-state DB.
I know, I know, would you like to pursue taking over for Fred Jackson...
I'm not going to argue against it, I hope you're 100% right.
It doesn't look like Jayme has a commitable offer from Michigan.
None of the sites have him with an offer. And further, I questioned the offer earlier in the thread because he had been talking about committing around Christmas between the same finalists and some of the paysite mods said that he didn't have an M offer. Seems like the paysite people are saying the same thing now.
Thompson is the only one who says he has a Michigan offer. And then the lifelong Michigan fan commits to West Virginia...See where I'm going with this...It's not unheard of for kids to misinterpret what offers they have since they're all verbal or in some cases just fabricate offers out of nowhere. Know of at least one 2012 kid who claimed an M offer that Rivals outed as making up stories.
Per Hemlholdt too. Bet he does not sign with them.
12 months is a long time for WVU to sweat it out, especially if he starts getting a lot of attention.
Let the meltdown begin
Even though he's not going blue, I like the fact that we were recruiting him as a corner and not a safety.
I was looking forward to a day off of recruiting (as evidenced by the fact that the first thing I did here at 5:45am is check the board - uggh!) and here I am sucked in again already. Sometimes I think I'd be better off if this board didn't exist - of course, that would be until it actually didn't, then I'd be in a panic! Well, here we go again! TomVH got me into this and left me standing here. Damn you, Tommy!
Of course he went to WVU. It is the only school he had an actual offer from.
