TomVH: Avery Walls Decision Date
Let's hope you are wrong this time ;)
As long as he's not in the room they can take as much as they want...
We need the best recruits we can get so we can start our B10 Revenge tour ASAP.
Probably not good for us then. Too bad, according to scout.com Oregon already has 2 safety recruits this year and one of them is a 4*.
Yeah, I don't really have a firm grasp of what he's thinking. He's done a good job of throwing me off. He still speaks highly of Michigan, but I'm just not sure.
cough cough donovan warren???
I don't like the timing of that announcement. It will be very difficult for us to get a commit this month.
Oregon seems very far from home, I feel like that would have some additional impact with the sickness of his Grandmother.
It's not like Michigan's right next door to Georgia either
Oregon is like 4 days..just sayin'
Oregon has these things called airports...just sayin'
a good ol' road trip is molestation free. Unless you're riding in a windowless van, of course.
Thanks Tom. I wonder if MgoBlog will suffer another "everyone hitting the refresh button attack" similar to what happened during the Dee Hart committment?
Well, your gut feeling was off when it came to Sammy Watkins...
...so hopefully you're wrong about Oregon's lead, too, and he chooses U of M.
This is just a guess. The Watkins stuff was different because I had info on it, but I get what you're saying. I really think Walls could go either way, but we'll see.
Do you think Watkins could potentially switch back to UofM? I don't remember reading why he chose Clemson over M (especially with Crawford coming here). Any clarification from anyone who knows about it would be appreciated.
Not Tom and I don't remember when or where I heard this, but Watkins really likes Clemson's coaches and got along well with Charone Peake, current Clemson WR commit.
I don't think he ever liked the cold, but that might not have even been a factor.
This is why we can't have nice things!
I wasn't taunting TomVH. Hopefully nobody took it that way. I was just saying that maybe since he was misinformed about Watkins, his gut feeling about Walls be off, too, and then we could all be happy.
If Avery's Uncle has anything to say about it, he won't be headed to Michigan. His uncle posted on his(Avery) FB that he won't allow his nephew to attend college where the program is on probation. Just hearsay, but i thought i would throw that out there. Though Avery did say his uncle can be extreme at times.
are closing in?
the countess 6 more days!
I need to know... this stuff is Kellen me.
my favorite Hobbi!
Ha ha... good stuff. I love me some puns
Very punny you guys...
I'm grabbin a miller
I feel better about the recruits who are waiting until Jan/Feb to announce because we'll (hopefully) be passed the RR hot seat stuff. The fact that Walls is making his decision while things are still unsettled makes me think he doesn't need to know the outcome because it doesn't pertain to him. Hope I'm wrong.
Why play for a school that changes their uniforms every week? Our helmets have wings, their shoulder pads have them. Honestly, the helmet is much better.
Go Blue Avery. We have lots of playing time available.
Oregon's engineering program is not ranked nationally.
UM's program is #7 by US News.
I'd be a little surprised if he went to Oregon given his stance on this issue...but the football is pretty insane at Oregon right now so you never know...
He wants to be an engineer and a starting football player? Best of luck to him!
Yeah, that's going to be difficult unless he's one of those guys who is so smart he doesn't have to study.
I hate those guys. ;)
It'll be easy if he goes into IOE
Difficult, but do-able. Kevin Leach is in the engineering program.
One of the OL is too, Omameh I think.
Patrick Chuba Omameh was born December 29, 1989 ... enrolled in the College of Engineering
Also, sweet-ass middle name!
Omameh switched to Sociology. Engineering is a grind, and so is playing D1 football.. can't blame him, especially as a starter.
Was a 3.8 or so GPA engineering student and a pretty darn good offensive lineman for the Miaze and Blue! It can and has been done....
was. They must have overlooked him when they were steering people toward general studies.
Just FYI, Oregon does not even have an engineering program. Did he specifically say he wanted to become an engineer?
I think you're confusing him with Wayne Lyons, he's the one who talked about wanting a school with a good engineering program
So, I'm a d-bag. And he's not comming to UM.
December 14th at 9:40am
Damnit Tom, can't you get any more specific?
9:40 AM is 6:40 AM in Oregon. No one will be up, so Avery has to be going to a school in the EST zone. OK, a bit of a stretch.
A bit of a stretch, but not a bad point actually.
that's just disturbing. i've seen a lot on these here interwebs, but damn.
for the Maize and Blue. Either way seems like a great kid.
Hope this isn't true, but OregonLive seems to think Avery might be a silent commit for the Ducks:
"Avery Walls has been rumored to be a silent commit. May be, maybe not. But he's in Atlanta and if Chip's going to Atlanta, well, that'd make some sense."
I think he'd look better with the Maize n' Blue, and that the Michigan degree might make him slightly more likely for a Rhodes Scolarship one day. Michigan has a 24-19 edge over the Ducks in that category and a more recent awardee (2009 v. 2007).
Uh, that's Lyons, I do believe.
Any news on Avery Walls and his announcement? I know he is leaning toward oregon but do we have a chance?!
its way late, but I talked to Avery via facebook few days before he made his decision....
Q: Does Michigan's coaching situation knock them out of consideration for you?
A:(Avery Walls) Dec. 9th @ 1:35AM Thanks Man. I will talk to Coach RR in a few days. Then I get a few days to make final decision
Its not much but the CC def. played major role into him going to Cal even tho many thought he wanted to go out West
I'm sorry, but how exactly does "Thanks Man. I will talk to Coach RR in a few days. Then I get a few days to make final decision" mean that the coaching situation played a major role in his decision? That quote doesn't tell you anything.
