Well...he sure narrowed it down for us.
Well...he sure narrowed it down for us.
But a great, informative thread title too
He will be in Ohio this week and hopefully AA next week possibly with Kalis since they wanted to take their officials together. He sent out a tweet earlier basically saying how "life sucks" in regard to making a decision. Hoke and Jackson will be visiting this week and Meyer next week. Looks like its going to the wire.
24/7 is reporting that Dunn will be in Columbus this weekend.
he might visit there this weekend. Come visit the good guys!
why are people jumping the gun on brionte's commitment? It's been very obvious he wants to goto Ohio all year and several things need to happen for us to get him up to AA. Lets not start saying he's coming to Michigan until we hear otherwise
I definitely agree. It cannot be a good sign that he keeps saying "I am committed to Ohio State" over and over. Obviously, it makes us hopeful that our coaching staff is still gunning for the kid, he still has been visiting AA, and he probably would not work in Urban's system. However, the guy still refuses to even say that he is a soft verbal. I am just trying to be realistic on this one.
I'm sorry did you say something? I'm having trouble reading right now with my eyes glued to your avatar.
Somebody should start tracking flights out of Baltimore or Dulles....BWI or IAD to DTW is preferred obviously.
Does anyone know if Reeves is still solid with Penn State?
I think he's reopening his commitment. I saw an article about Urban Meyer taking over Ohio and whether it interested several prospects, their answer was yes. AR was one of them. I know Armani's teammate, Camren Williams, is still a solid Penn State commit. That might keep Armani in Happy Valley, though they weren't a package deal.
Earlier today the Washington Post reported he is probably visiting Ohio and he is not sure if he will visit Michigan.
Please don't shoot the messenger
You have nothing to fear. He's been a long shot the whole time. It would be great to land someone with his talent, but I'd be surprised if it happens.
Stefon, just don't go to Ohio, or else you'll have to get shut down by Countess.
I'd like to think he's being so vague because he's worried about assassins laying in wait, should his plans become know.
Stefon Diggs- Man of Mystery.
A Michigan coach showed up to Diggs school and he was gone on a visit to Cal. Im not getting my hopes up on this guy.
Seems like something you'd call ahead about
Are you sure they weren't visiting Wes Brown? Seems odd. Where did you hear this?
And it was clear that it wasn't just a drop by type of thing. Recruiting is fluid so nothings ever over with. I just assume with Darboh in the fold and Chesson ready to commit by Christmas, where is the room for Diggs?
They just offered one of teammates in the class of 2013.
I do NOT understand how Cal is generating this much interest in recruits. I've seen them play, and they are not good at the footballs. Really, they play like a team from a clown college...which is funny to think about, but still...
while on the field, they may be bad. they are getting a new stadium and new facilities. also, location is real nice.
I am stefonately diggsing the news about him possibly visiting Michigan this weekend.
U don't know your ass from a hole in the ground.
Our rooting interest at this point, is that he ends up at Cal over Ohio. I would hate to play this kid for the next 4 years. My trouble with this however, is that he said he wants to go to a school that will make him a better man. I don't see how Auburn, or Ohio will make him a better man during his time in college.
Man, at some point I probably need to stop getting worked up over what a bunch of 17-year-olds say on twitter about where they'll play football. I mean, I'm a man and I'm 30!
I'm a man, I'm forty
and I am 50 so get used to it for the next 10 or 20 years.
but i can't help myself - i want him so bad. no homo.
I live out here in Cali and haven't heard anyone else drop the "no homo" line.... A bunch of high school kids we coached dropped that line on us 3 years ago and I still use it
I didn't even know he was considering osu. If he goes there I can only imagine suffering through three years of Miller throwing five yards past him.
He got really excited and so did wright when urban got hired. Apparently urban has good ties to the east coast. Is there any reason diggs has slowed down on the recruiting of diggs. For a week he was tweeting at him non stop. All of a sudden he seems to off just stop.
I'm in the camp that's not terrified of Urban Meyer. I think he tucked tail and run to make sure he went out on top. I DID think this would happen. He has multiple national championships, he can claim he went out on top...he was always going to attract talent like magnets. The only thing that's going to stop that is if he runs into protracted hard times on the field. So here's hoping.
Either. He was Mediocre without Tebow. Also, will he have success without burning the candle at both ends?He'll recruit but OSU being Soild is good for the rivalry.
Meyer is 56-16 (BG, Utah, and FLA) without Tebow, a winning percentage of .78. That's hardly mediocre. There's no reason to "fear" him, but If you think he's not one of the top 5 coaches in the country you're denying reality. He has excelled wherever he's been.
Was the wrong word. Look, the guy can flat coach, but will he have success not coaching the way he did at Florida? He talks a lot of burn out and such. OSU is a VERY demanding fan base like fanatical. How long will he last?
Kids of this caliber, with this mentality, think the ship waits for them, or, barring that, that it's the ship's loss. I tend not to take the highest-ranked kids seriously until they exhibit tangible interest in a place. Diggs has never actually demonstrated any real interest in visiting Michigan, so I hold no hope for him until such time as he's actually on campus.
Same here. I'll get excited about his recruitment if/when he shows some real interest.
Jordan Diamond, Brionte Dunn, several commits and players to be named later are all taking officials this weekend to cbus.
You're either with us, or against us.
If Brionte sticks with Ohio, good luck to him.
Woh there Athens. Calm down.
OSU has 4 WR commits so far. Granted, Diggs is better than all of them...
Watkins was in a similar situation when he committed to Clemson last year, and it didn't stop him. When you're as good as he's supposed to be, it's a problem for the other recruits, not for you. And with Posey gone, it's pretty much an open field...
i cant recall ever hearing about this kid in the 2012 recruiting mix... but just read this post on ESPN
Four-star Cincinnati Moeller receiver Monty Madaris has set up his first three official visits, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.
On Friday, Madaris will visit Michigan State, and he will take a trip to nearby Cincinnati the following week beginning Dec. 16, Moeller coach John Rodenberg told The Enquirer. Michigan, which Madaris has said previously is right around the top of his list, will get a visit in early January, The Enquirer also reported.
He's been mentioned, but not often. Talented, athletic kid, but we got in on him late, and it was mostly said when we offered him that he was an MSU lean. Haven't really heard anything about him since this summer.
Madaris was talked about quite a bit earlier in the year but not as much lately. Chessen is probably the most likely to commit then Payton and Madaris. At least that's how I gather it. I'm no expert though so I may be completely wrong.
Probably nail on the head. There was a paywalled article on Rivals about Chesson deciding when he was going to announce. If I were a betting man, I'd say the end of WR recruiting is coming that day.
I'd love to hear what Meyer is telling these guys. Within minutes of getting installed as head coach, he's getting Diggs, Spence, Wright, DIamond and Dunn on campus within a couple weekends. Damn, man ... Noah Spence wasn't even interested in OSU beforehand, and neither was Wright (I think).
I'm not in the FEAR URBAN camp, but I no like what I see. He pulls in five or six top tier guys, it's gonna be pretty rough sledding, especially if those are the same dudes we want playing for us.
Mattison and Hoke uber alles. Please.
He has two national championships to his credit. Last year, when we thought we might get Les Miles, we were trash talking about how he would woo recruits away from Dantonio by flashing his NC ring. There isn't much that speaks louder succeeding at the highest level.
how many of these kids were waiting for some decision, any decision, to be made about the next coach in cbus before taking their official visits? Why take an official to talk to Fickell who will be co-official-waterboy-assistant-to-the-assistant-defensive-coordinator going forward? If Ron Zook had been available earlier, they may have been waiting for him to be named osu coach before deciding to visit. We'll have to expect that osu will have a decent recruiting class, and it looks like we'll still have an equal or better class.
Zook at OSU? Oh, my, yes...that'll replace the models in my dreams tonight.
Sweet dreams, but only dreams. Meyer will build a good program, but we will see him out in four years
having a non-interim head coach to meet with. Why waste a trip to talk with Fickle? Pent up demand.
"The check is in the mail" urban meyer
Also, since this thread rambles a bit anyway, for those who are interested, J.P Holtz, the Penn State TE decommit Mattison visited last week, visited Pitt this weekend. That's probably the logical first step, considering he's from Pittsburgh. But somehow it makes miss Brown even more...
Seriously? Is that how you make a sentence?
We also have offered TE Sam Grant who is Kalis' teammate. He will try to take his official with Kalis.
I'm not really good at reading tea leaves, but this doesn't seem like good news for us.
I just hope the dude doesn't end up at Ohio.
