It was reported earlier in the week by Rivals that several of the commits were taking their official visits this weekend, but I think the visitor list is too expansive for them to get much individual attention. It seems several of them will be taking their officials later in the fall.
TTB: Saturday visit list... !!!!!
Is Hand for sure coming in? I saw him on Tremendous' list a little while ago but he's not there any more.
I haven't seen anything about him canceling, but that doesn't mean he's still coming, I guess...
I thought I read somewhere that we was trying to figure out a ride situation so he is still not confirmed.
that he couldnt get a ride.
It's like they have brought in an ENTIRE TEAM of recruits for one day. If you suited up that group of recruits, they could probably win the Leaders division* (*eligible teams only) and the ACC Coastal diivision at the same time.
I didn't realize Da'Shawn Hand had high interest in Michigan. That's exciting. I've always believed talent wants to surround themselves with other talent; saying that, I'm sure it rubs off on Treadwell, Green, etc.
These are the 4 things I want to see happen, and they are in order.
1. Beat State (I know, right)
2. Derrick Green commits
3. Mason Cole commits
4. Damon Webb commits
My levels of inebriation, should such events transpire, will be the cause of envy across the entirety of Ireland.
No love for Treadwell?
BTW, Hand's team (Woodbridge) plays E.J. Levenberry's team (CD Hylton) tomorrow night, if anyone's in the area and looking for some good players to watch...
...this amazing Saturday visitor list report is just one example.
ROLLDAMNTIDE = WolverineInABag
Magnus = Section 1 ??? hmmmm
If that's the case, then I would like to combine my points with Section 1's. That would put me somewhere around 37,000 or 38,000.
Points on this site don't make your recruiting evaluations on ttb right...
But just imagine the awesomeness of our combined power, used for good and not evil:
Why the heck not?!
I guess the baseball thing didn't work out for Brennan, Michigan Football is a good alternative to the Tigers. Getting left off the postseason roster must have made him rethink his athletic endeavors.
That is a very impressive list. Good thing our entire 2013 class will be on hand to help the coaches recruit.
Shane Morris time.
And Shane Morris in the crowd to help shepherd them in. Pretty cool.
Where is Malik McDowell? That seems like a recruit we should be persuing extremely hard. Does he have a game or something Saturday?
Good question. Considering MSU and Michigan are high on his list you would assume he's got something going on.
With his own game this weekend. I read this somewhere earlier in the week, perhaps on the TTB post linked in the OP.
Has a game per Tremendous
a game at the same time as the Mich/MSU game.
According to max preps his game is on Friday.
which is why, I believe, Shallman won't be attending either.
What an amazing list! Go blue!
Alabama, EMU and Notre Dame apparently have.
I would think they want to offer a 2014 QB first before they offer a 2015.
I think I read in a Michael O'Conner thread somewhere (at the time he was a '15 recruit) that Borges told him they would not offer a '15 QB before offering a '14 QB
Michigan is taking an elite guy in 2013 (Shane Morris), but it seems like they're interested in getting a guy in 2014 who will be okay with playing second fiddle to Morris for a little while. I would imagine that they'll be looking for another Morris-caliber recruit in 2015, and I'm not sure that Jayru Campbell fits that profile.
From the people I have talked to about him, who have seen him play weekly. Say he is overrated.
Do those people realize he's a high school sophomore?
I imagine they have absolutely no idea that his is a high school sophomore, where would they find that kind of information?
There aren't many people who have even rated the kids from the class of 2015, so I'm not sure how he's overrated... The thing that really matters as far as "ratings" go right now is that a few FBS schools have already offered him full ride scholarships.
Mhat if he commits to EMU before we offer him!?!
Deveon Smith isn't on that list. Pretty sure he will be at our tailgate pre-game. So, I know he will be in AA.
I honestly clicked over to TTB just to look at the hot girls picks. Sorry recruits, but Kelly Karloff is superfluous!
I'm pretty sure that word does not mean what you think it does.
Are there ever too many visitors? Does this hinder coaches' ability to speak to them individually or is that not an issue?
I don't think you can have "too many" visitors, because the number of kids there makes the school seem like a real destination, where people want to visit, see games, play, etc. Having this many visitors is a good thing.
However, the coaches aren't going to be able to spend as much one-on-one time with all these recruits as both parties would probably like. There's only so much time in a day. But guys who are coming from a long way (Green, Cole, Scott, etc.) or who are on officials will probably receive the lion's share of attention. The guys with no offers or just a couple MAC offers from Michigan or Ohio can come back anytime for a little more contact.
So, if the count is correct, that's a star-studded list of 58 recruits and current commits, plus or minus some in the next few days depending on their ultimate plans. Nobody was joking when they said that we may quite literally have a whole team in the visitors section on Saturday. A very impressive group indeed, and hopefully Michigan puts on a nice little show for them to cap their experience.
What a list! I hope the Big House is electric Saturday. Combine that with a (hopeful) Michigan win, and things are looking good!
I am predicting mass commitments, record breaking stuff. Also, a 20 point thrashing and Dantonio going into cardiac arrest as Denard scores his fifth touchdown of the day.
Go Blue...cmon boys join the wave!!
We'll need air bags.
Are there any commitments anticipated this weekend? For instance, Tremendous hinted that new OL recruit Denzel Ward will be here, and could commit.
I don't necessarily want to know who (because every recruit deserves his day in the son and the publicity of "committing,") but I'm curious how many commitments are expected.
The other thing I'd be curious about is whether the emotion of the moment is a bad thing. That is to say, I wouldn't want recruits to be swept up by euphoria, to make a commitment, and then to have second thoughts and cold feet, (as in Dawson, for instance.) I think the policy Hoke has set of visiting the schools you're interested in, and only commiting to Michigan if you "are sure."
We have had 1 decommitment in this recruiting class, lets not act like it's a serious issue.
I think Ward is the only guy we should be watching out for. If anyone else were to commit, I would think it would be Mason Cole, but I am certainly not expecting a commitment from him.
