Stefon Diggs commits and SIGNS to Maryland per Mike Ferrell.
Thank God this is over. No more hopeful Diggs posts.
Actually, this is very impressive. He and Dorial Green Beckham chose schools near home that were pretty middle of the road when they could have gone anywhere.
glad its some one not in the SEC or SEC north
Diggs will be wearing the ugliest diggs for the next few years. Good luck to him.
He's going to Maryland, not Ohio, so it can't be the ugliest.
as long as he isn't at osu...
Quick post to ensure my point total isnt at 666 any longer.
... is the best place to go from 666.
I guess that means Kozan to Auburn, right? Just had to be the first one to put that out there for ridicule!
I have to agree that is most likely going to happen
He must be a very conflicted young man.
i think he might be already
Is it safe to guess we won't hear anything from Kozan until Iowa hires an OC?
Wait, are we sure he didn't say "UofM" and people assumed Maryland because that's where they were when he really meant Michigan?!?!
with Kozan likely goes to Auburn?
Never mind, we got 25 MEN.
Where's StraightDave? He promised a steak dinner to everyone in the other Diggs thread if Diggs went to Maryland
Thank God! Now we finally move on to wondering if we can get him to transfer. Four more years of speculution!
...because the man's recruiting prowess is unparalleled...
See, not all recruits value winning.
Or an education......l
Wait, really? I thought Maryland was a pretty good school academically.
Maryland is above average, nothing great. But, it's not WVU or some place like that. We already know education wasn't a big deal one way or another with Diggs, though.
a tasteful avatar
Great for him, but who's going to toss him the ball?
Thank God he didn't get sucked in by Urban Liar
its pretty funny reading ohio state boards right now. saw one guy say "meyer cooled on him because he is afraid of competition" haha right......
most just can't fathom why he would choose maryland over ohio and meyer. guess they can't understand wanting to play with your friends/hs teammates and in front of all your family and friends
This happens on every message board of every school about nearly every highly ranked recruit. I consider this site a top-flight message board and the only 4* or 5* recruit we wiffed on with reaonable discussion was Garnett. Every other recruit had a half-dozen posts with "his academics were bad" "his character is bad" "the coaches cooled on him" "the SEC (or Ohio) paid him."
Seriously, link me a thread of a 4* or 5* recruit (not Garnett) that we wiffed on that doesnt have at least a half-dozen posts containing one of the above reasons.
Edit: Edited before snarky reply probably linking the Shaq Wiggins post a few threads below. I meant a prospect this close to signing day (when the # of guys your school is in on is slim). Of course people will react decently if there are 20 other prospects at the same position the coaching staff is after.
oh i know. all fanbases are guilty of this, including us. mainly just enjoying their fanbases reaction to meyer losing out on a recruit to maryland, since according to them he can walk on water and all
I don't see any snark in the Wiggins thread.
EDIT: Yeah, there's definitely some amount of trashing. Overall, I think we do a good job of keeping that type of stuff off the board. Personally, I tried to avoid the board a bit during signing day period because of all the doomsday threads.
This is also good because Kendall Fuller won't have a reason to visit anyone at OSU now. I hope Blake Countess can get that kid blue. he's a very very good corner.
What a shame OSU missed out on kid who POTENTIALLY could have been a Harvin type of impact player. What a shame.
Yeah, except Jalin Marshall is pretty much Percy Harvin.
on some Auburn message boards, and they seemed pretty sure of the double Diggs/Kozan commit today.
Has it been confirmed Kozan is a real person?
i guess i am the only one disappointed he is not coming to the Big Ten even if it was ohio. the better players urban liar gets to go to ohio the better it is for us, the B1G etc. i live in the heart of SEC land and it killed me to see UF and south carolina kick B1G ass NYD. but the schadendfruede on the ohio message board is pretty awesome they whine like spartans.
Thankful to just move on
Locksley > Meyer
And thank god this circus is over.
