Instate OL Jake Fisher is ready to announce his decision. He'll be holding a press conference within the next few days, but he wasn't sure the exact date.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Sounds like great news. Ready the Hello Jake Fisher Post.
He might get lice. Those things are dirty! Someone needs to stop him before this happens.
Because of the ski mask attachment, it is hard to whip on and whip off an MSU hat, pulling on of the head fake deals.
That hat bit is gold, Jerry! GOLD!!!
I cannot read this kids name without wanting to join the British Royal Navy. Welcome aboard (I hope) Admiral Fisher.
Now if we can just add the Duke of Wellington...
Aye Capitan, I found Dreadnought to be a superb read
Now, if we could get a recruit named Jack Aubrey...
FWIW rivals quoted him as saying he was impressed by the coaching staff at MSU but was impressed with everything at Michigan. Maybe he tipped us off maybe not.
In the last six years, St. Mark's head coaching records...
2004 - Cincinnati 7 - 5
2005 - Cincinnati 4 - 7
2006 - Cincinnati 7 - 5
2007 - Little Brother 7 - 6
2008 - Little Brother 9 - 4
2009 - Little Brother 6 - 7
40 - 34...and this guy is worshipped by the MSM?
Do the right thing Jake Fisher! Go Blue.
Can't wait to have more OL commits than PSU has total commits!
saying "Come to PENN STATE". If there was ever a TV moment that encapsulated the inanity of recruiting.
Hey Jake...Come to MICIHIGAN!!
PS: I wasn't talking about the BTN Football Four Pack...
MSU had to convince him to postpone any decision.
He has decided and will be announcing very soon, meaning MSU failed.
2+2 = ....
why did they have to get him to postpone?
So they could have more time to smack talk Michigan. Envy blows.
Because that was their only chance at landing him. It's been obvious for a while that UM was out in front and any decision made in the near future would be for Michigan. MSU's goal during this last visit was to try and convince him to delay and take things into the fall. Didn't work, apparently.
So they're probably slow playing him a bit, waiting on recruits higher on their board, or would they accept his verbal?
I'm not sure where you go that from - they would absolutely accept his verbal, but like Zettel, their only chance of getting that verbal was to convince him not to commit to Michigan now and drag the process out. That pitch has worked with Zettel; didn't work with Fisher.
yeah I worded it poorly, but you answered my question, thanks
From the scuttlebut, I think he has spent a lot of time talking with and visiting Michigan. He has been leaning toward committing to Michigan but was going to stop by MSU on his way to the next visit in Ann Arbor and confirm that's what he wants to do. Michigan State wasn't expected to be close to getting a commit on that trip: a win for them would have been Fisher deciding to delay his decision pending how successful Michigan looks early in the year (then hope Michigan doesn't look strong). A quick decision thus seems to favor Michigan in this one.
and gets the number 2 tatted on his back so everyone else knows what number they are finishing in,
Come to michigan... come to michigan...
Where do you think he will end up? I am pretty confident he will come our way, but Sparty may not be trashing our program, but they can direct recruits to people that will.
I need some commitments! I'm going through withdrawals. What are the chances of us landing all 3 of the Fisher, Walsh, and Hobbi combo that visited? I like all three. It seems though as Fisher is the lesser of the three.
Also, since Dee Hart is visiting, could he be on commitment watch as well?
Great news but WHY is a press conference necessary...
and therefore likes attention.
Because not everyone can make "fax for the camera, baby" look cool
I want the players that want us. Train them up, coach them up and let them loose on MSU. The kids that really want us, will always have that extra motivation to be the victors and the best.
I think we will be seeing a Hello Jake Fisher post very soon, hopefully it will follow with a Hello Dee Hart.....
How long have middling 3* candidates been holding press conferences to announce their commitments?
How awesome would it be if he had a Michigan Cap and a MSU ski mask on the table in front of him at the announcement? He'd be an instant fan favorite (assuming he goes blue).
Make this happen. For the love.
Could commitments from Fisher and either or Walsh, Hobbi expedite a commit from Zettel?
Possibly. I guess it depends on Zettels interest in playing OL over DE, which appears to be his position of choice.
announcing sunday at 8:30
