WR Sebastian Larue RT @SebastianLarue1 Spoke with Michigan coach today may set up a visit there.
This is the 3rd thread you have yelled at everyone, stop yelling!
Are you mad because I didn't tip you well after you shined my shoes?
At least turn off the CAPS Lock, I feel like I'm in a room with a person who's either partially deaf or has a depth perception problem.

Comment directed towards Wilma.
He's a bit shorter than the WRs we've been targeting under this coaching staff, but he seems to have the speed to be a legitimate deep-threat—something we could really use in our offense going forward. I'd love to see him in a winged helmet.
"He's a bit shorter than the WRs we've been targeting under this coaching staff"
I'm not sure how that's possible, since he *IS* a wide receiver the coaching staff has been targeting. He's had an offer for a long time.
Who cares about his height?
We don't want every WR to be a possession receiver. In the end, we need PLAYMAKERS - The best 2 WRs in the Outback bowl? Ace Sanders and Jeremy Gallon...both are smaller guys who return kicks and are lethal in space. We need just as much of that as we need the next Julio Jones.
Wilma Edwards just going ham on the trolling business tonight. In other news, Larue would be a tremendous get
I think this also just confirms the sailing ship that is Laquon
According to the link below you are dead. I checked around and there are no other Wilma Edwards in the US. Since I find it's best not to mess with ghosts I will nod politely and move on.
Ah, she's a ghost. That explains it. For a while I thought she was posting from a Speak & Spell.
WHY ARE YOU YELLING?!?
Would you AUTOGRAPH THEM FOR ME!?!?!
Fred called, said STOP WITH THE CAPS ALREADY!
Regardless, you're right; he's gone. Ole Miss is his current leader.
you are kidding..right?
What the heck...it's worth a shot at Larue. I take nothing from the AU game and his offer list says he is legit.
At this point with some of he big WR's that have come in a nice slot guy has to be appealing for Big Al. I hope the emergence of Gallon/Dileo with their route running gave Al the confidence for some fo the smaller WR's.
There's a short and free 247sports article on it. Basically says that he'll talk to the coaches agian soon and that Michigan is one of the five programs he's still considering.
I doubt Texas AM is a serious contender considering they have 9 WRs
And almost 40 commits.
Well, LaRue himself tweeted this earlier:
Not sure if I want to take this official to Texas A&M with them having 100 commits.

How is that even possible? Didn't the SEC update their recruiting rules a few years ago? I thought 85 schollies was max, 25-28 max in any given year without back dating. Did they repeal that idea in the SEC?
I think they are at 35 but apparently 9 are enrolling early so those don't all count to the limit or so I read somewhere on the internet.
2012 was a relatively small class. On top of that, several of those players were able to be backdated to 2011 due to EE. Thus, technically, A&M had a tiny 2012 class. So, A&M is able to get a ton of recruits for 2013 via EE.
IMO, the whole recruiting numbers things is kinda odd, but A&M is playing by the rules. There's no St. Nick Saban Memorial Hospital shenanigans going on.
A&M does have a TON of WR commits. One of them, Griffin (4*/5*) is not expected to make it in due to grades. WRs recognize the chance to play with JFF and that 4-5 WRs are on the field at any time.
That article was unblocked when I posted it. Pretty funny that they messed up and didn't block it at first. Anyway, there wasn't much info in it.
It's pretty clear to me that a 5 foot 10 guy can be a top target if he has speed and the ability to get open. We need a playmaker at WR and he would fit the bill.
Who has been one of the most productive WRs over the 3-4 years in the NFL?
LaRue would be a great get. I hope he visits and loves Ann Arbor.
Would he have that distinction if he had someone else throwing him the ball?
I don't think there is a better route runner in the league. Welker also has a great knack for finding pocket of space in a defense and settling in to provide Brady with a target. Now, would he have as many receptions without Brady? Probably not. Would Brady be as prolific stats wise without Welker? Probably not. They're kind of made for each other in that Brady's bread and butter is the short quick throws and that's a lot of what Welker's been used for (though he's been running deeper patters more recently). The Patriots have had contract issues with Welker, and it seemed early on this season that they were trying to phase him out and try to get Julian Edelman to do what Welker does. In those games, the Pats went 3-3. Since then, when Welker has been more involved, the Patriots have been 9-1.
You have to be doing something right if you're catching to catch 100 balls in 5 of the last 6 seasons.
(I don't know if this was a "Tom Brady is the greatest and a Michigan man" type of question, so I answered it honestly)
Tom Brady going to Michigan isn't relevant to my post. I'm just talking about his skill set. I don't watch much more than highlights so I can't speak on Welker's value to the Pats. I appreciate the thorough response.
I guess we'll find out next year when jeff demps replaces welker
I hope not. I was impressed with what I saw from Demps in preseason, but I don't think that he could replace Welker. He's a burner and he can definitely make an impact on special teams, but I don't see him as an underneath receiver yet. I don't know if I've seen enough of his shiftiness to really get a gauge of what he can do though.
Regardless, I think the Pats will resign Welker to a long-term deal. I know that the Krafts want him to stay. I know Brady definitely wants him to stay. I think that the deal gets done. Hopefully.
Brady makes him a great receiver. Other than that he is probably good to average.
You must not have seen him play for the Dolphins with junk quarterbacks. He was awesome in Miami, and Dolphin fans hated seeing him go to New England knowing he would torch them with someone like Brady throwing to him.
It appears Larue is not white enough.
I think the real question is, is he gritty enough? Grit > Melanin
If he came to Michigan we could call him Jose ole pants.
Yep. That's a mini taco joke.
We need corners. Top corners haven't exactly been flocking to Michigan. Re-aquiring the coach that molded Charles Woodson would be a huge pull for corner and safety recruits.
I am not sure I quite understand your point. Why would he leave Lville as the D coordinator to come here unless we payed him more to be DBs coach? or do you want Greg M fired?
??? Bedford is DC for Louisville. Why would he come back here to be a position coach?
We have corners, we just couldn't keep them all on the field this year for one reason or an other. We have Countess, Taylor, and Avery starting next year which will be pretty awesome. We don't really sub corners in for the most part, but we also have at least 5 more corners in Jourdan Lewis, Ross Douglass, plus Hollowell, T-Rich, Stribling, and maybe Jeremy Clark or Delano Hill backing them up, too.
Curt Mallory has done a good job with our secondary the last 2 years. I remember our secondary 3-4 years and it's night and day.
On so many levels.
I feel like I missed the party.
It was like Weekend at Bernies except everyone noticed the smell.
Even Anne Frank saw what he was up to.
No, Anne Frank was deaf, dumb and blind. Well, until the miracle worker showed up and smacked some smarts into her.
Not that it matters all that much on a football forum, but Anne Frank was a 14 year old girl whose family was sent to a death camp by the Nazis during WW2. She kept a diary that was discovered at the camp after it was liberated. She died there, probably of typhus.
Helen Keller was the woman you're thinking of.
how come I've never seen one of her entries get bumped to the front page?
That's the one where the Nazis bombed Pearl Harbor!
No, WW2 is "Mists of Pandaria" where Jack Black plays a panda that's trying to escape from the zoo with the help of Milo and Otis.
He's quoting Clerks 2.
or the reference never happened.
Heard his name plenty of times in the Under Armour game.
LOCK HIM UP! IM GOING TO BED NOW SINCE I WANT THIS DAY TO BE OVER CUZ I SPENT WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON SPARTY CAMPUS TODAY AT A WRESTLING TOURNAMENT. YES, IM MAD ABOUT IT SO IM CAPPING THIS ONE OUT. GOOD NIGHT AND FUCK YOU SPARTY.
To the guy complaining about corners. It's best to give up hope of there being another Charles Woodson. I accepted the fact years ago. He's a once and a lifetime player. Michigan will be just fine.
As far as Larue visiting, HELL YEAH!
Charles Woodsons don't just grow in trees!
Well THANK GOD for that!! I don't want Charles Woodsons that grow IN trees, I want Charles Woodsons that grow ON trees!!
Autocorrect kicks my ass everytime :(
*once in a lifetime...
Michigan could use a guy like LaRue. You need a good mix of players, and with Gallon leaving, the only run-after-catch guy on the roster might be Da'Mario Jones, who wasn't that highly recruited.
Larue does have a visit planned at Notre Dame on Jan 25
If USC used one of their very limited scholarships on Larue, I do not have a problem if he picks us in the end. Like many others have said, we do need a speedy type WR in the mix.
