Shaq Thompson not visiting for Nebraska. Insider article basically says that the trip is cancelled to focus on his HS team. However, he is still talking with the coaches and hopes to make it in December. Does not have a leader.
Shaq Thompson not visiting for Nebraska
I believe an insider also said that this was what the [Michigan] coaches wanted; this is not bad news.
I think his coaches wanted him to visit on a non-football weekend to ensure he was really interested.
Does not seem like a bad plan. Also, his quotes in the article sounds like he is still very much interested. Not a bad thing at all..
Although it would have been nice to show him what the Big House is like on gameday, the most important part of recruiting visits is meeting the coaches and seeing the facilities. An extra perk is that because this is not on a gameday the coaches can spend more time with him, which would help our chances with him.
I heard that the coaches wanted to make sure that the interest is mutual so they want him to visit for a non-game weekend.
This is actually great news. From good old Tom : the coaches want to see how interested he really is by having him come on a non gameday. If he really comes then I'm going to get excited.
At first I was like _________ but then I was like yay, he still coming!!
This is not the usual slow playing. It was only pretty recently that he started talking about interest in Michigan.
The coaches want him to visit for a non-football weekend so they can get more time with him and to make sure that his interest are truly there.
We need all the secondary help we can get
We need linebackers and lineman.
Which pay site did you lift that from?
I get this picture in my mind...
I think part of it was not only that the coaches wanted to spend time with him, but that they wanted to see that the interest was truly there; not merely going around seeing the best free football games around.
Does anyone think that the coaches just wanted to make sure he was really interested? I think that might be what's happening here.
It is my understanding the coaches are doing a fakey to revert to confirm his interest is sincere.
