Since I'm three hours behind EST I probably won't be awake for "the news" that's supposed to happen tomorrow morning. You might want to tune in to WTKA in the morning, though. FYI.
TomVH: Just to Let You Know
What time does it air?
It goes to 10. But I expect it'll happen during the "Sam time".
Sam Webb said around 7:40.
(I think he also said this kid went to one of the most highly recruited schools, not sure if that's what he meant)
It's coming up now! 7:50 AM
This is the good kind of cryptic that I very much like.
Fwiw I think it's Wormley. That's just my baseless speculation though.
It may be, I've heard this family is tight with Sam Webb. I have heard that Ross is close though.
Then we can do two D-Linemen at the sane time.
but not to M. I've heard that Penn State leads.
Orchard Lake St. Mary's is very serious about locking out programs that they think have mistreated their players in the recent past. Rob Bolden definitely falls into that category.
I don't know why this was voted as Flamebait.
I really, really think it's James Ross. Callin' it.
If you're right, we may have to reappropriate the nickname "Linebacker U."
If you can sneak some internet, pretty sure that MGoBlog will have something posted about 3 seconds after it is announced.
What, do you imagine someone will be running slow on a Monday morning?
Assuming I give you 3 seconds, will you allow me to predict that there will be 3 different threads on the same topic by noon?
I don't blame you for hating living in Ohio, but if you want to hear the announcement WTKA streams and they upload podcasts throughout the broadcast.
and haven't thrown it in the toilet, download TuneIn Radio from the app store. It's free and WTKA (and other local stations across the US) comes in crystal clear. Someone else on here recommended it a few weeks ago
Tunein radio is on android as well, but is only good if you're listening live. Unfortunately wtka's podcasts have been down for a bit, so unless people are using google listen to listen to their podcasts, mgoblog will be the way to go.
Thanks! I have tune in radio on my blackberry and never thought of looking for WTKA on it. I will be listening or checking my twitter, whichever posts the news first.
And fyi for people who dont have an iphone, tune in is available for blackberry, android, windows phone, googletv, etc.
Even if the stream and mgoblog are blocked at your computer at work, I assume you have a smartphone. So load mgoblog on it before you leave for work. At work, pull out your phone at 8am and hit "refresh", and BAM! There it is.
Just follow MichiganInsider on Twitter to get the latest from Sam and Ira at WTKA....
Im stuck here in Indy so I will miss the Sam and Ira show tomorrow. For those of you able to here and post remember those of us who can't.
We know it's not anyone from out West, that narrows it down.
I think it's wormley
Hmmm . . . I think it's a Michigan Man. That's my own gut feeling. No inside info, just a gut feeling.
BTW - I'm 6'7" and 335 lbs - I got a pretty big gut to get that feeling in.
the morning show--called "wolverine insider" starts at 600 am and goes to 1000 am----i think sam webb is there roughly 620 am to 900 am
the "recruiting roundup" segment is usually around 740 am to 800 am
More informative thread title, please
It's Tom and he does what he wants, so suck it!
It's Tacopants' little brother, BurritoCleats
Hello, Seantrel Henderson.
Cullen Christian's commitment press conference is finally wrapping up... and I have a good feeling about it.
As long as he doesn't go to bed a Wolverine and wake up a Seminole (or anything else, for that matter), I'll be OK.
it's the michigan insider
I need something to pick me up after this Wings loss.
of Founders Double Trouble after that game. It surely can't hurt.
Tom -- if you can get up for the Royal Wedding at 2am PST, you can get up for this at 4:30am PST
Apparently, you are not married. When Mrs. VH says get up at 2 AM to watch a wedding with her, you get up at 1:30 and have coffee ready for her!
God, that's so true.
He needs to catch up on his sleep?
Well we know its not Godin as he is announcing May 12. I'm going with Ross on this one assuming its supposed to be a defensive player.
I wonder if this is the silent commit that everyone has been talking about.
I think we're all in agreement that the silent commit is actually Godin. I'm sure TomVH will let us know once Godin makes his announcement if he was the silent commit (which naturally holds for whoever it may be).
I am going Wormley: Sam Web had a huge interview with his mom a few weeks ago. It would make sense that Wormley and his family would feel comfortable doing it on the show.
Therefore, I say its Ross.
Allen trieu is talking about one and Barnett is tweeting about another one different then the one Allen is talking about. Both are supposedly big commitments
This is accurate. And Barnett has "Kentucky in his eyes".
So two commits, a silent, and godin and Thompson announcing? Sounds pretty damn good
I think I'll just wait until tomorrow to find out :) Why speculate?
well where's the fun in that. The second best part of christmas was shaking all of your presents the night before and guessing what you were gonna get
I'm excited and look forward to whoever it is
Sounds like we will be pleased. Too bad I will be at work.
This is better than sex!
you've been having bad sex.
Are you sure you're straight, Dave?
I'm pretty sure gay people like having sex too...
If he is straight, but somehow forced into having gay sex!
If he's not enjoying the sex, maybe it's because he's been playing with the wrong team.
I guess you guys didn't read his username (hence my "flamebait" comment).
You have to be impressed with the recruiting of this staff. They are going toe-to-toe with everyone. They went after MSU's pipeline, and they are going after kids that at one point were considered absolute locks for osu. We have kids like washington and strobel talking about michigan. We may not get them, but the staff is forcing osu to fight for everything. Heck, osu even has to fight to keep their blue-chip star rb recruit. This staff is not afraid of anyone when it comes to recruiting and it is impressive to see.
Im guessing Wormley. Do I have any evidence to support my guess? No.
Get that "Hello: Chris Wormley" post ready.
Tom !! You're amazing !!
Green-Beckham. BKFinest it.
That kid looks like he will be an absolute machine! 6'6 and running a 4.4 40 time... If I had a recruit wishlist right now, that kid would definitely be near the top.
This news is relevant to my interest.
Thanks Tom. Good luck in your quest for new and entertaining music.
with the recruiting competence of our coaches right now too. I wonder how we would be fairing without the ncaa allegations surrounding osu but hell cant hurt to have a little osu handicap first year until our coaches can re-establish our reputation.
Im trying not to get to excited.... But for us true Michigan fans aint it great to have a Michigan man back at the helm..... Not afraid to go toe to toe with the Alabamas, the Olieo states, and Uscs of the world!!! On the recruiting trail
dont you know, the early bird gets the worm...
based on the info, its "best of the midwest" and trieu reported kiel was visiting last week... so it could very well be kiel... or could even be pike but doubt it. could be burbridge, or wormley.
i figure its 95% probability its one of kiel, wormley, burbridge, only b/c of the 'best of the midwest' hint....and i figure its kiel because the fact that they are tipping off that it is big big news, and that trieu recently did kiel's profile, announced big news coming, and also reported kiel in ann arbor last week.
I believe that Godin's brother reported it was a defensive player.
i hereby request a mulligan..... and after further review...i now think it is....
PART 1 ADOLPHUS WASHINGTON
PART 2 DWAYNE STANFORD
why have i changed my tune? b/c sam webb just wrote an article on gobluewolverine about recent developments that has pushed michigan way up for stanford.
Good use of your mulligan and good info. Sounds like it could be a decent possibility.
actually i tried to retract that but too late... after re-reading tomvh's interview with washington, it appears he hasn't visited yet and wants to announce army game.. .but who knows, if stanford goes blue, maybe he does too. what i find interesting is not one DL committed yet, and we have got to be the most attractive spot for a DL.... so i think tomorrow is it likely is a DL.... so washington or wormley, as they are considered best of midwest... but the odd thing is about kiel and trieu lately.
If a recent development pushed Michigan up for a wide receiver, I bet one of the anouncements is quarterback.
Stanford and Washington are announcing at the UAAA game in January.
Doubt it's Burbridge. I am not even sure he has been on campus in the last few months and he has some work to do in the class room. Personally, I hope it's a DL.
How about Terry Richardson? I haven't been hearing his name lately, but who knows? With Cullen Christian gone, there is even more room for him to come in and play early. I doubt it is him, but I hope we are going hard after him.
If I had a choice, hopefully it would be Kiel, because if we got a big time QB on board, it would only help offensive skill position players want to play alongside a top QB.
If not him, then Wormley would be the next best IMO.
Either way no matter who we get, I'm still pumped!
I talked to a starter on the michigan defense and he stated he heard from many sources that is going to be ross. sorry for opening the bag early, but its gonna be ross
Hard time believing you don't have a better lead on this swell of "good news"
there could be a change of heart, but from what i know its going to be ross. this isnt third hand info, its from the horses mouth. so just tifwiw.
That, or he just doesn't really understand how to use the phrase "from the horse's mouth".
True, and I agree with you but to play devils advocate, I have seen someone new come on here and say something like that, get hammered by posters and turn out to be right, so who knows?
Do you now have a retraction or some sort of apology?
He gave the impression of knowing what he was talking about the night before Zeke Pike announced for Auburn. If he knows what he's talking about now, I hope he won't make a habit of pulling a Dayton Daily News on kids' announcements in the future.
theres no speculation here, its quite obvious...
I was scrolling this board to see something like this. I mean he did just visit.
Matt Godin's brother was on the site earlier and said it was a defensive player.
But he also said Zeke Pike would commit here. I don't doubt his source, just saying that even people in the know are wrong sometimes.
It's not Kiel and it's not going to be TR either.
and cant get on here just head over to scout.com they have a committment ticker and it has all the latest commits to every school
As another poster already stated I find it so interesting that we have no D-line commits as of yet. I know that Godin is the supposed "silent commit" but where would there be a more attractive place for a d-lineman especially DT's?? Either way tomorrow will be interesting and hopefully more big commits to follow.
No matter what the situation Hoke and staff have done a great job creating excitment on the recruiting trail!!
Day, Wormley, or Biggs.
as a M verbal. Which would be awesome. Don't have any idea how reliable they are
Rivals now lists M as "High" interest for Ross, all other teams Medium (though to be fair, not sure how long it may have said this).
Signs pointing to Awesomeness.
I noticed that as well. This changed from earlier this evening. All signs pointing to Ross at this point.
You would think its encouraging for Richardson as well.
I just went and checked and yes one of the staff members posted 2 hours ago "Verbal to Michigan."
If its true then thats great news but he should have kept it to himself if Ross truely plans on announcing in the morning. I mean I checked because I had to but dang...
I am going to personally send Ray Lewis (another) fruit basket.
Could it possibly be terry Richardson
I don't really care who it is. It appears to be a big prospect and big prospects are fine by me. A BIGGS prospect would be awesome though.
The question is, do I pull an all-nighter just so I can hear the announcement?
FWIW, Spartan 24toLife recruiting board has locked their James Ross thread, with a closing remark of "verbal to Michigan."
EDIT: BTW, they posted and locked 8 hours ago.
Big pickup. Wow. Go Blue!
