Can't be mad at his top five though.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Can't be mad at his top five though.
that top five is a national recruit's dream
IF he commits, who comes with him?
The Buddy System must be maintained.
I'll bet it's Chris Wormley.
I will not be able to sleep at all tonight as I wait to hear about this! Good thing I get to work from home tomorrow!!
At least we know Michigan State has no chance once again. If we get Terry we would be 9-0...
I saw his facebook status... This is a huge commit that we need. So excited for his announcement.
I really don't mean any disrespect to you specifically, but I have seen so many of these comments about "i just saw so-and-so's facebook status and..." and I have to feel bad for these kids.
Now I don't know how old you (or anyone else who made similar comments) are, but I envision adults who IME should know better, sending friend requests to these 17-19 year old kids so they can keep tabs on what they do.
I realize that they have to accept you as a friend before you can see anything (or at least I think they do) but for kids it seems the number of friends they have is a status symbol, so they accept anyone who requests. They are kids and one could see how they may get caught up in something like that.
For adults, however, I just find it incredibly creepy. I have heard many of the arguements about why they should be careful about who they accept and they are valid, but the fact remains they are kids, while many of those who are requesting to be their friends are adults. It just blows me away that some people get so invested in what a teenager is going to do on the weekend, eat for supper or go to university.
Someone needs to Photoshop this with recruits...
Too bad I don't have it at work.
I have a feeling that Godin's head will look perfectly proportionate on top of Stockton's body.
I really like how our current commits are recruiting others hard and are looking to form a super defense.
How many DBs do you think we take in this class? If only 2, who would like the other to be? I like Morgan out of NY.
Y'all are gonna be surprised when he chooses Syracuse.
I heard Qadry Ismail's his favorite player of all time.
I had the understanding he had Oregon in his top 5, not LSU... I honestly thought it was between Oregon, Michigan, or possibly Tennessee because of his cass tech connections...
Does anybody know which other schools in his top 5 he has even visited???
Bama and LSU over the summer, ND with, I believe, Biggs Ross. I don't think he ever got out to SoCal
SC did come visit him last week in school. Still think he's blue.
Do you think that he still takes all of his visits even after his commitment?
He could but I doubt it. No reason to move his announcement up if he was still planning to take visits, especially since all of his finalists would probably hold a spot for him.
An early commitment by him isn't a bad thing for us anyway. Even if he does announce for somewhere else, he's not far away from campus and will have his buddies in his ear for 9 months. Think we'd see him on campus between now and NSD regardless. Not to mention we're in on other DBs.
This somewhat disappointingly ends our Noah's Arc-like trend of getting position recruits in pairs.
I think Godin ended that, unless you pair him with Morris, which is an odd couple to say the least. You can't get further apart position-wise than QB and DT. And they aren't even the same year.
Man, the look on your face when Godin's zipping passes to Funchess in a few years....
when Shane Morris is lining up on the DL next to Godin, my good sir.
I thought the Godin commit effectively ended that when we didn't get another DT within 24 hours. Maybe we can start a new streak. I'm looking at you Morgan...
By Dee Hart , he is also playing CB for Bama. Saban's old tricks back at work ....
At least he's not being recruited by Ben franklin from Auburn... that guy is money.
Really want A. Washington though. Just want to see all tOSU that I'm stuck living around me to blow a gasket. He's the one they think will never go Blue!!
Dude, you are new here so I want to let you in on something. The avatart you choose, while a great pic, happens to be shared by one of the more contraversial posters on this blog (I have nothing against him, but many do). I am just saying there may come times when you get an auto neg because someone thinks you are "His Dudeness". Just friendly advise so take it FWIW.
I've read some of "His Dudeness" post, and def. don't want to be mistaken for him.
not that I have anything against his dudness personally, but that is a much better choice of avatar given the situation on this here blog. Nicely done!
You took the picture too soon. Wait a little while longer and you could have seen her beefcurtains!
This girl was in one of my psych classes :-o
In the spirit of this, and further recruiting, does anyone have a Scout membership and want to let us all know what this says:
T-Rich + Burbridge, who we are believed to be in very good position with, + Gunner Kiel? I want to know what is in this (but not badly enough to buy a Scout membership). With this T-Rich news for tomorrow, one would suppose that May 28th will be either Gunner or Burbridge's announcement?
Edit: Or, it could be the date of Kiel's second visit to AA (which is supposed to be happening soon). This is more probable.
Had a bad Dream Terry Choose Another School Damn Hope this is not True! Our Recruiting Has been going great so far at least i know 100% we will be getting someone very speacial!!
A CB/QB pair sounds just fine to me. Hoke continues to impress.
We're only taking one QB per class, so a recruit is allowed to commit with either (a) another player at the same position, or (b) a quarterback.
I understand now.
If he doesn't go Alabama I will be beyond surprised. Would LOVE for him to go blue but he said himself he wasn't picking Michigan and it would be a surprise pick. He's also all about Roll Tide now. Plus Royce was talking like he really hoped Terry would be coming but he sounded very unsure. Right after he said he hoped he would come, he said no matter where he goes he'll support him. Sounded basically like Royce knew he wasn't coming here but he didn't want everyone in Michigan not liking him for picking another school. Just my 2 cents. I hope he does come to UM though!
"Would LOVE for him to go blue but he said himself he wasn't picking Michigan"
This is the part where I have to ask for a link...
Again, link please...
If this is from him it sounds more like a response to RJS saying he was announcing last week. Not that he had eliminated Michigan.
Will Campbell said almost the exact same thing just prior to re-committing to Michigan, so it's all fun and games. We can't do anything more than make educated guesses.
There is a back-story to the whole "Roll Tide" thing. Sufficed to say, those who are in the know (i.e. not me) believe that Michigan is in excellent position for Mr. Richardson. It doesn't mean he will definitely commit to Michigan tomorrow, but I wouldn't worry too much about some of the public statements by T-Rich and RJS.
I remember at one point it really seemed doubtful that he would pick UM, but some recent happenings have made that seem a lot more possible than before. Over the past month and a half or so it seems that UM made up a lot of ground and may have even taken the lead with him. I have no inside information, just what I read on this blog, but everything lately has been very positive for UM. I think at this point it is pretty much 50-50, but I don't think we are in as bad a position as you think we are.
At the beginning of the process a lot of the in state recruits weren't "feeling the love". The coaching transition had us a little slow to get our offers out. A few months later and they will all soon be blue.
