this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
End of August? Wow.. Here I thought it was going to be the end of June.
Hopefully the long wait doesn't matter
Technically the end of June is before the end of August. So you never know, it could be sooner.
Install Calendar 2.1 Service Pack 3 Build 41234a.
Or end of this week, at least I was hoping. I would not mind waiting on when a kid commits.
hasn't this been known for a while? i think everyone was assuming he was going to commit by the end of summer.
Heck did notre dame come into the picture? I thought it was ohio state and michigan race?
"I thought it was ohio state and michigan race?"
It is. And not a close one either.
I don't think they are in it. Sometimes I think kids just feel like they have to have a TOP 4 or a TOP 5 so they throw in a couple of cool sounding schools that have offered. I think Michigan has played that "role" a lot in the past, where a kid will include us in a list of four or five but we really are not in it.
know if Chris has an ND offer? Im talking TomVH, Magnus, DGDestroys... Im just interested to know.
Even if he is an enormous lean towards us, the longer an annoucement takes always leaves the opportunity of something happening.
deciding first. I hope he's got a spot saved with the coaches, he and Diamond could find themselves competing for 1 scholarship at this rate.
Exactly. What if Washington comes around and falls in love with Ann Arbor. I know people have said they would take both, but as a recruit, can you take that chance given the rate in which we have filled this class?
reports on it's main page that for SDE Faith Ekakitie Michigan, PSU, and TSIO are his leading schools. He weighs anywhere from 285-255 depending on who you ask but looks like a 6'3" 265-270 lb DT/DE to me. Rivals has him 100th even with the lowest weight listed.
I'd like Ekakitie, but he seems like a back-up plan at this point. If we miss on someone, we would probably turn up the heat on Ekakitie. Either way, he's a really good player and I'm sure he'd be a DT for us.
competing for 1 scholarship at this rate."
Am I missing something? Wormley is DL and Diamond is OL, so how would they be competing (except at practice next fall)?
if there's only one scholarship left by then. They obviously wouldn't be competing at the same position.
Wait, so does this mean I can unbuckle now?
and Michigan. What's there to decide?
Sounds like something Bo would have said.
His recruitment has been really strange. He has obviously been a strong Michigan lean for a long time. I wonder what's holding back his decision? Possibly publicity for his teammates, similar to what Jordan Diamond is doing?
More commitment watch for this clown I say we just move on and sign Pipkins and O'Brien ... Wormley can take his time but we need to move on , we have prospects that are better than him especially if we are looking to move him inside to the DT spot we should get players who already fit what we need .. Whats the point in signing a undersized DT then having to wait 2 -3 years for him to bulk up 40 lbs ..Im still not buying the hype around this guy ..I know people will neg bomb me and my post will be flamebait but O F#CKING WELL
Wormley is a 17 year old junior in high school. You are the clown.
Go away. Thanks.
Thanks for that. Nice 8th post. Don't bash recruits. Especially ones who will most likely be playing for Michigan.
First, Wormley is a DE. Second, it is June and you want to "move on" from this "clown"? Pipkins and O'Brien are not deciding until August or later either, so why not "move on" from them?? Third, you can't sign anyone until February, so I'm not sure how you propose we sign O'Brien and Pipkins now anyway. Fourth, Wormley is 6'5", 250 lbs. (so far)... I'd enjoy the entertainment that would come from you calling him a "clown" in person. Then again, it would be a rather short event.
My thoughts as well.
Great laugh, thanks!
That may be the dumbest post ever.
And that is saying a lot.
Who calls a 17 year old kid a "clown" for, you know, wanting to take the time to make the post important decision of his life. And, August is STILL early in the recruiting process.
It's times like this that I long for the ability to call for a good old-fashioned neg-bang resulting in a long incarceration in Bolivia.
I truly miss potent negative votes.
As much as I find your post very uncalled for let me pass along a small bit of advice. There is the MGoBoard link at the top, please click on MGoBoard FAQ. Religion, and bashing current or future players are two things people and especially the MOD's have very little tolerance for.
Again trying to state as nice as possible and not call you a "clown" but you really are going to get killed for this type of post.
When I say this, I want you to close your eyes and try to "hear" the AOL signoff sound bite.
More than anything in this post, what angers me is your seeming implication that Wormley is an attention-whore. You do know that every commitment watch, drama, etc around Chris has invariably been started by 1) the media or 2) a fanbase, right? Chris hardly even talks to the media. I'll repeat what's been said several times over. You, sir, are the clown.
more than a clown; you are an idiot to the highest degree. You must come from an ancestrol line of idiots that must be the missing link between monkey and man. Please do us a favor and never post again.
Mods, this umfan323 has been posting for a few days now, and nothing but trolling flamebait. can we ban hammer him, please?

You must be an unhappy person.
We should probably have our entire class signed by July!
decide where I was going to college until right around May of my senior year of high school. Does that make me a clown too or just Wormley because he's a football player. And his senior year hasn't even STARTED yet. Jeez
you could have made your point without all the stingers and calling a future Wolverine "clown".
I trust the coaches...they're getting great talent, and some of our commits are even being upgraded (see the Braden thread). By "we need to move on", I think you're saying Wormley should grab a spot on the train while there's one to grab. Nothing at all wrong with that opinion, but save the barbs for OSU, ND, and MSU.
Please (everyone) don't forget many of our players and recruits read this board, and maybe even post on it.
you start drinking early, I see.
I think a lot of people on here hope Wormley is going to suit up for the Maize and Blue, so please keep your ignorance to yourself. Thanks.
Wormley's committment, I gotta say it's been a helluva month for the Wolverines.
I would love to see a post noting every significant event over the past month gonig all the way back to the very memorable Memorial Day. Committments making verbals, offers to 2013 prospects, the implosion of tSiO, etc.
The only downer for me is my doctor said I need less salt in my diet a.k.a less popcorn.
Is your doctor a medical expert in the field of Hokeology? If not, I believe you're in need of a second opinion.
The fact that this seventeen year old young man whom I've never met won't commit right now to make this relatively slow Michigan week a little more exciting really makes me question his character. Why isn't he thinking of me, damn it?!
Did Diamond just commit? Somebody with a Scout account tell me! Either he did, or they just pulled the mother of all misleading lead-ins!
No. It's a mix of sneaky writing by Scout and horrible reading comprehension by Scout subscribers.
I don't know that it qualifies as horrible comprehension. At a second glance, it lands one comma away from the most optimistic interpretation, which given our delusional level of mania, readers would be likely to overlook.
