I'm not saying it's not worth it. Scout has had a habit in the past of putting up articles with very misleading headlines to get more readers.
They are OK, but I was a member for 5 months, and would rather have my $10/ month in my pocket and read MGo for free. It's usually a bit delayed and there aren't as much rumors, but who knows how many of those rumors are even true.
There was a Trieu tweet yesterday which said, "Michigan dropped in on a 5-star QB, a four-star DT and a WR with multiple BCS offers this week..."
Michigan football is way more important than trivial things like the end of the world . . .
Well the 5 star QB was Pike. And Sam said the silent commit is on defense and not from the Midwest. And that Michigans national recruiting phase has started with this committ. So that would rule out Washington and Stanford.
he was on defense.
The silent commit was Matt Godin.
Those that hate talk of silent commits, DO NOT CLICK! <-- Title of the hyperlink to Sam's Webblog.
Not Matt Godin, lol! The new commit is a defensive player not from the midwest.
If that's the case then methinks Tom dropped us a hint above. Will Hines perhaps...
Is Missouri midwest? My guess is Hines, from texas. Got the offer yesterday, committed today.
Morgan = NY
Reeves = MA
Neither are midwest
We're still visiting Pike even after he committed to Auburn?
Tenacity. Snake oil. Love it.
Washington is a DE
Or Reeves, they make the most sense to me.
Someone put up the VH signal!
he (tom) tweeted he knew who it was
... him back and ask him when he is willing to share the info?
I'm old, I don't tweet.
(which he won't), wouldn't that sort of ruin the whole "silent" commit thing?!?
Maybe he could silently tweet it to you and you could silently post it on here. I'm not sure how to do that, but come on, we went to Michigan, we can figure this out.
That's easy. Just do not say a word and make sure you press the keyboard really softly so it does not make a sound!
It will technically be silent then.
addictions if we keep hearing about potential new recruits? I was thinking that this would be a quiet weekend on the recruiting front and I could develop the power to stay away from frequent checks of Twitter and MGo. At least it is not a detectable drug.
There is a big Nike camp at tOSU this weekend. Could that have something to do with it? Some of our recruits such as Stanford and Washington will be there. (If the world ends Saturday, Sunday events will be postponed)
RJS, Biggs and Richardson are supposed to be at the Nike camp this weeked. we all know that RJS is a very good recruiter. Hopefully he is in Stanford and Washinton's ear all week.
Godin and O'brien are going to be at the camp as well. It can't hurt to have Godin and the other three recruiting for us.
He said we could probably figure it out. Who makes the most sense right now?
Conventional wisdom tells me Reeves, Wormley or Standifer. Reeves the least likely of those three.
Longshot=Dunn. Who knows if there's any truth to what was rumored this week.
Standifer, he makes the most sense to me. We all thought we had a good shot at him committing when he was supposed to be up for a visit.
cant be him if it's a non-midwest kid right?
FYI: Tom said that the rumors started by someone on the radio in Ohio about Dunn are not true.
Even though I don't think Aaron Burbridge has a commitable offer yet, I want to think it's him. Another highly ranked instate trio would be a dream come true.
I think it's Armani Reeves, he makes the most sense. With T-Rich committing and with all the new DB offers the staff has handed out over the last week, it just makes sense that it would be him. He probably wants to secure his position but wants to make the announcement a big dea. It could be him or Wayne Morgan, but I don't know if I consider Morgan a highly decorated defensive recruit. Which is how Sam phrased it.
Morgan has offers from Alabama and Miami (YTM) and is the 33rd ranked player in the nation according to 247sports. That qualifies as pretty decorated in my books. Reeves' best offers are probably ND and Stanford. He is 59th overall in the nation according to 247sports. Both are outside the top 100 on scout and rivals but still well ranked.
Weren't we supposed to be in a battle with PSU for Reeves? I think Morgan recently moved us above Rutgers, so I would guess Morgan over Reeves, but honestly would be happy with either, especially since both are supposed to be very fast (both reporting 4.40 40's, which might be embellished like any other HS recruit's numbers, but still impressive).
PSU is the team that would be considered our biggest competitor at this moment. They do have a commitment from Carmen Williams who is a very good friend of his.
Of the two, I would rather have Reeves. It was reported recently that he has put on some good size, but has not lost any of his speed.
I'd rather have the guy with LSU and Alabama offers. Ultimately, the elite teams are the real judge of who are probably the most talented players. I've always been confused by kids that are rated really highly, but have a bunch of mid-level BCS and MAC offers.
My comments about Morgan not being highly touted were a little off. I just like Reeves and Standifer a little better. But he has an impressive offer list and is highly ranked. And everything i'm hearing now is pointing to Morgan and definately not Reeves. So i would say it's Morgan and would be very pleased to have him. He's a tough nosed kid from NY, he should bring toughness and a great attitude.
Those can be tricky.
With the way our recruits have been coming in pairs, Reeves makes a lot of sense.
Tom said on twitter, he knows about the commit. Just can't give us anything. O well, GREAT news anyway. I'm sure we'll all find out soon enough.
Sam used Reeves silhouette photo on the scout website.... someone above already posted it... WELL DONE WOLVERINEINSB.
so if this is any tease, then its Reeves. Plus, they are committing in pairs.... I for one, am looking forward to when the DT pairs drop...actually I hope we land three, in Washington, Pipkins, Jones.
Thats the main reason I believe its Reeves, also-I remember a few days ago there was talk of T-Rich posting on his facebook for Reeves to message him back. So that would make sense.
one could guess:
Dunn - Some substance to yesterday's rumors
Wormley - Although he will wait until at least the end of track season
Reeves - Richardson convinced him
Kiel - Silent until he gets to A2 to tell Hoke face to face and man to man
Morgan - Wants a DB spot before they are all gone
Just throwing these out there.
Brionte dunn rumours? Was is the one about him decommitting from
OSU or was there another one?
coming down the OSU NCAA pipeline.....improper housing I believe was the specific thing thrown out there.
I highly doubt that it is Kiel, but I would love to be wrong about it. I guess we will see if he decides to answer any questions during the Elite 11 camp this weekend. I do think we are sitting in a better position than before especially with this visit coming up.
Sam said it's a defensive, non-Midwest recruit so definitely rule out Kiel. Would be an odd time for him to commit anyway since he's at Elite 11 as we speak.
It's a defensive player not from the midwest.
Do we know that it is a DB? I was wondering if Jordan Diamond or more likely Sheldon Day were close to committiing. Chris Wormley said he was waiting until track was over to focus on his recruitment, which I am not sure when that is. I think Armani Reeves is another good possibility, and hopefully Terry Richardson has been recruiting him harder than his teammate Camren Williams. When will the commitment be announced or known to the public?
Seems like the DB assumption was made based on our recent paired-by-position pattern of committments.
I think one of the posters above said it was from a non-Midwestern defensive player eliminating Diamond (offense, Illinois) and Day (Indiana). But I admit I would absolutely love to get those guys too. Does anyone know if we still lead for Day? I haven't heard as much about him recently. I think he is supposed to be at the upcoming OSU Nike camp along with several other Michigan commits. Hopefully they can get in his ear.
