Michigan commit LB Kellen Jones just called me singing the Victors. Needless to say he's not going to Miami next weekend.
in town for free camps
Mattison must have called up Mel Kiper to do mock drafts for what would be Kellen Jones' senior class comparing if he went to Michigan or not to Michigan.
or he has already dispatched Ray and Ed to help with his "recommitment", now that they have lots of free time. Send them to happy valley next.
2 former miami players? i dont think they are the ones that convinced him to go to michigan!
that kid (TomVH too)
I'm with you. Kellen is the recruit I'm most excited about. Watching his stats through his senior season, it seemed like he was averaging 12 tackles, 4 for loss, with a blocked kick and a fumble recovery every game. And you could tell from the day he sang the Victors with his family in Rich Rod's office to accept the offer that he loved the University of Michigan. I can imagine big things for him - I hope I'm right.
I love it. Two great pieces of news in a day. Snowball effect maybe? Thanks Tom.
u beat mine by one second. +1 for your cat like reflex.
Where do you people get this stuff? Great news, hopefully Kellen will be a beast ala RayRay
This is full of win, kittens and heavy artillery, all you need now are explosions.
And for once we don't need any of the nuclear variety.
and all my cat can do is piss on the carpet.
Mattison was a good get, and keeping Jones and his love for Michigan is another plus.
can suck it. He's not stealing this recruit.
maybe we will be stealing some back from him. Then he really can go suck it
I hear Chickrillo is soft on Miami! what a steal that would be!
Hopefully the first of many to show enthusiasm for Michigan again. Could see us closing strong with defensive recruiting, and next year just killing it in the midwest for 2012 defensively.
Guys like Wormley, Danny O'Brien, Terry Richardson, Royce Jenkins-Stone, Biggs Ross we could reload this defense real fast!! Bright times ahead.
Some big Linebacker names who might want to be coached by the same guy who Ray Lewis loves. Awww Yeahhhhh
The Mattison hire is having an immediate impact! More good news to come!!!
I am so freakin excited I took a vacation day from work on FEB 2nd.
am glad to hear this news.He will make Kellen Jones a very good linebacker.GO BLUE!!!
What about him?
First of many changed attitudes. It will be interesting to see what magic this group can put together in two weeks. I am cautiously optimistic.
Kinard is still coming next season correct? Last I heard he qualified, which would be great to get Kinard & Jones along w Demens & Fitzgerald.
No, he's going to Miami. He never qualified for Michigan regardless, it appears.
damn....thanks for the update.
I love u tom
2012 is supposed to be a huge year for recruits in ohio and the midwest... good hire
Really happy we're keeping Kellen in this class. I really like this kid because I think he is a good fit at this University. I think he had the right kind of attitude, someone who wanted to be here. Additionally, looking at all his highlights, I could see him being a big performer in the future.
With all the bad news we've been receiving lately, it's nice to hear that some guys are holding firm. I'm glad we showed this kid the love.
great....the bleeding is stopping, now let's start bruising these other schools and snag some 5* targets frm them
Ray Lewis sends his regards...
Kellen play I'm reminded of Larry Foote. I'm not film expert, but I hope i get lucky on that one.
