Take this for what it's worth:
@SuccessfulQuon: So much going on my decision coming soon.

Well didn't he just say we were his favorite not even a week ago? This looks good.
and yes it does.
This could be good. If I am not mistaken he is most likely with a bunch of our guys at the Opening. After the week with the Wing's so far this would be a great way to turn my spirits around. I just hope that if he does commit to us that he is 100% ready and not just trying to rush into a decision.
he's rooming with a ND commit.
My speculations have been off all week dammit. I guess it is probably a good thing despite rooming with a ND commit at least we have 7 or 8 different guys most likely in his ear as much as possible during the whole event.
got the numbers there. Most importantly Shane is going to be there. I guarantee Quon is going to be feeling the love from the Team 134 members in attendance!
Maybe the ND commit he's rooming with is stinky.
tehh shlamploo goesh underr shere
You don't have to worry about ND. Grades are an issue here.
Doesn't matter he wants Shane to throw him the ball. Its all about The Shane, The Shane, The Shane.
From what we know about his recruitment, it doesn't seem like there's another strong contender here. Of course, we've all been mistaken before but I'm just not seeing it.
I think he's probably tired of the entire process by now and just wants to get it over with. I think he's been holding out for holding out's sake to this point. I think he gets further indoctrination from the other members of T-134 and the commitment comes soon thereafter.
I agree. And I don't think the coaches would accept a commitment unless he's 100%. The things that bother me about this is that just a week ago he planned on visiting Oklahoma and Ok. St. as well as possibly visiting USC. Thats a huge change in such a short time. Guess we will find out "soon" according to the young man himself.
It seems like he's been wanting to visit the Oklahoma schools for a long time. If they were so important to him, you would think he would have made the trip by now.
He had a scheduled trip to Oklahoma canceled a couple of months ago because of severe weather. But you're right, that was a couple of months ago... seems that he's had plenty of opportunities to try to go again.
Plus, he wouldn't be the first commit to say that he's planning on taking several officials, and then go ahead and commit before official visit season even starts (see Cravens, among at least half a dozen others I can think of).
wounder if its crunch time. Hoke, or whoever he is being recruited by is telling him that he is still plan a but they aren't holding a spot for him, and if plan b wants to commit they will give the slot to him.
Being an optimist, I think it's a good sign that his Twitter background image shows him wearing a Michigan Wolverines lanyard. One can look too much into an image, right?
Would really love to see him come through. Fingers crossed!
but has the ship completely sailed on Ty Isaac?? Say we land Treadwell, we have LTT & Boesch. Can't we get the Core 6 IL group to flip Isaac? Probably not a chance, but our offense is going to be unreal with our OL recruits and Shane. I'm picturing the next Anthony Thomas/Tyrone W clone...........
Isaac sounds pretty set on USC.
I think our best shot would be Kiffen commiting another NCAA violation. Having the entire cast of Oceans 11 show up at a recruit's hotel room must be some kind of violation.
Don't forget right before he said his decision was coming soon he saidthis was the worst morning of his life.
You're not a good fit.
He's Mike Martin!
...what's making him reluctant to commit is that it's a huge decision and it's still the middle of the summer, he still has some schools he wants to see. I understand wanting to protect yourself from disappointment by using pessimism, but I don't think logic really supports it in this case. However, we are talking about a teenager...
There's no "I guess," we'll definitely see. It's one thing for you to say "I'm pessimistic about this one guys" and another to say that's he's not a good fit. Because, like you know.
What have you observed that makes it not a good fit?
He detailed it in his first post, speculating that other commits that have seemed to be in the bag but have dragged out their recruiting have had a high probability of going elsewhere.
I, for one, don't get that feeling with LaQuon. I do think you guys need to stop negging this guy for having a dissenting opinion. He's engaging in a conversation. We are not the opinion police, well maybe we are, but we shouldn't be...
It's not a good fit because the kid didn't commit immediately? I'm not really sure why you're so convinced this isn't going Michigan's way. Have we been so spoiled with this class that kids we're recruiting aren't allowed to go through the recruiting process now?
It's 100 times better than your first comment. Had his tweet affirmed his desire to take his official visits or wait until NSD I would be inclined to agree with you. However, you've just described all the reasons he would change his plans and commit sooner than he would ideally prefer. So, if his tweet means what it seems to, you're making a good argument that he's coming here.
True, but he also seems to want to visit schools and make the right decision for himself. It is nice for the fans to have these kids commit early but it is probably better for the kids to be able to visit the schools not on te kids dime and utilize what he learns to make the best educated decision for himself. Oklahoma and Oklahoma st put out good WRs in passing oriented offenses, so it makes sense that he would want to visit them, especially since it isnt cheap to travel their with his family. Maybe he Just wants to see the other schools before eliminating them and doesnt want his parents to pay for the visits when he can get free ones. Sidenote: I have forgotten his other top 2 schools.
Also, how do you know some of the things that make Michigan so attractive such as immediate playing time are not also available at other schools? Do the rest of his top 5 have talented QB recruits or freshman on their teams? Not every recruit jumps the gun when they know the school they like. See Poggi. Tremendous did an interview with him where he stated he played his recruiting close to the vest in order to promote his teammates and make sure lots of recruiters could see the younger guys on his team. See also Jordan diamond. I understand your concerns but until he says something more concrete about liking other schools, I think we are in the drivers seat. Also, we started offering other WRs because our other targets started indicating they were going elsewhere or their interest in us never improved (see massington, north, Larue, quick, foster, etc).
Kids "dragging out" the recruiting process, not naming leaders, and being deliberately cryptic about their intentions isnt always a selfish thing. Henri Poggi (and many others) did it to keep big programs visiting his school to get exposure for his teammates.
Yes, except the school visiting evaluation period is over.
Must have been a glitch on the Android app
He recently tweeted that Sugar Shane has to text him back... If you can't tell, work is slowwwww today
Maybe he heard Shane is into the announcing business. Probably wants to commit at the opening with Shane announcing the whole thing.
What do believe he meant by that, and how do you see it tying in with him later saying commit coming soon?
That would be a telling tell-tale sign.
Wonder who's going to be the quarterback of them team im on? Shane !
That might be about his team at The Opening....
Or it might not
I give up
Either way...has to be good news
has any of the Rivals guys or Scout guys commented on this today?
Premium content has been issued from Oregon...all of it looks good from their perspective, but I don't think it's based on anything more than circumstantial evidence...there aren't any additional direct quotes.
Are we sure he isn't just deciding between regular and honey nut cherios?
not really sure the exact rules about premium content... but lets just say that those with WolverineNation access over at ESPN can read some TomVH thoughts on this... he's had a chance to speak with Laquon about his tweets...i think its ok to comment that the tweets are definitely not about a honey nut vs regular cheerios decision.
Because you really can't lose with Honey Nut or regular Cheerios. I'm an avid Cheerio-er, and I usually buy both types (none of those new-fangled flavors, though) and alternate every other box. They're both so good, and by the time I've finished one box, I'm excited for the other. I get more value out of the regular version though, since they're more often available in the big family size boxes. And recently they've come with a children's book inside, so that's a plus.
A bowl of Heart Healthy Cheerios is always a great way to start the day
Is it too early to buckle up? I think it might be, but safety first is key right? I'll let all of you decide.
